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.

The contact owns a 2007 Nissan Altima. The contact stated that his vehicle needed a catalytic converter. When the converter was replaced, he smelled a potent odor in his garage and must leave the garage door open to release the smell and the vapors. He took the vehicle back to the dealer and they stated that nothing could be done. The vehicle has not been driven since it was purchased on September 20, 2007. The engine size was unknown. The VIN was verified, but appears to be invalid. The failure and current mileages were 2,100.
