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.

2007 Nissan Altima Owner Comments

problem #2

  • 29,000 miles


Brake light on the dash keeps turning on when I accelerate and make sharp turns. Called Nissan and they told me that there is a brake fluid leak that needs to be addressed. The car is 3 years old. After searching the internet I saw that my vehicle is not the only 2007 Altima that has reported this issue in the last two months alone.

problem #1

Jan 072008

Altima 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
Exited interstate highway, traveled up ramp, was unable to lift left foot to brake (possibly caught under parking brake pedal, which is close to the brake), traveled through intersection and hit guard rail, causing $8,800 damage to my 7-mo.-old leased 2007 Nissan Altima. The whole front end crumbled. Because I was not wearing a seat belt, I was thrown into the windshield, hitting and smashing the rear view mirror and cracking the windshield. Injuries sustained were not serious, but there would have been no injuries at all if the air bags had deployed. None of them did. I am now very concerned about the safety of myself and any passengers I might have in my car. The dealers service center said that the impact was too high up on the front end to trigger the sensors. If my vehicle had slid under the rear of a truck, I would have been killed in spite of being surrounded with air bags.
