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.

First, no problems but at regular oil maintenance, they said we had an oil leak. Had it fixed. Engine started stalling. No warning lights. Said had an oil leak of some kind. Fixed it again (so we thought). Happened again two months later - car started stalling. Engine light came on that time. Towed it Nissan. Said had an oil leak. Fixed it (again we thought). Two months later riding down road at low speed, car caught on fire. Got it put out before engulfed because of a gentleman passing by had a cooler full of water. Engine is now totally no good and have another year to pay on this car.
