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 2006 Nissan Altima has a trend of engine problems, both in our data & definitely in the NHTSA's complaint data as well.

Excessive oil consumption is the main problem reported by owners. Nissan did a recall back in 2006 for oil consumption due to bad piston rings, but many owners report to us that the recall didn't fix the problem.

The dealer only had to check the oil consumption rate. Typically 1 qt per 1,000 miles is "acceptable" per OEM standards ... that's a lot of oil!

Clutch pedal sinks to the floor board of my Nissan Altima 3.5 SE, the clutch fluid is at full capacity and when the car is in motion at a red light or even at a still motion the clutch goes completely down or out...I have had my fluids checked and it is full....this as been happening since I have owned the car at 52,000 miles and continues to have this problem to this very day.....nissian 3.5 cars are notorious for this problem, but Nissan fails to recognize this as a recall problem....but everyone is having this problem 3.5 - 5 (speeds) with this car and this model.....this is a serious safety issue especially when I am in slowed traffic and cannot shift properly...this issue needs to seriously be addressed and the problem resolved....fatalities should not be their reason to enforce this issue.

Gas door does not close properly. The hinges are bent. Have noticed this on many Nissan Altima. Forcing the door closed, for safety reasons, has caused damage to the body of the vehicle surrounding the gas door. The paint is chipping and will soon begin to rust around this area.
