Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

CarComplaints.com Notes: The 2005 Nissan Altima has two fairly significant problems with the floor pan rusting through & motor mounts breaking.

Altima owners report that up to a basketball-size hole develops under the floor mats where the floor pan metal rusts through. Average repair cost is over $1,000.

The broken motor mounts are less of a problem - they break at ~75,000 miles average & it's $400 to fix. Still, motor mounts should not break!

I have had my right front strut replaced 2 times. It is now bad again. They have also retorqued the suspension and replaced the strut mount. The noise doesn't stop. Problem started at 29,000 miles and continues at 43,000. The noise continues to get worse and Nissan only repairs it because of better business bureau arbitration on the vehicle.

The Altima's stock of front struts are defective. This is substantiated by a lot of Nissan Altima owners.
