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.

While having my oil changed, the mechanic pointed out to me that the left rear sway bar was broken. Despite numerous similar complaints about broken sway bars, Nissan has not initiated a service bulletin or recall for this issue.

I was taking the car to get an oil change and the mechanic noticed that the sway bar had rusted through and broke. He said it was a defective part and rusted through due to the fact that it was hollow - he explained it is dangerous to drive over 30 mph with a defective sway bar. It is my opinion there should be a recall due to the safety concerns.

I was just notified that my 2007 Nissan Altima has a broken sway bar. The vehicle only has 53,000 miles. I have seen multiple reports online of this happening to 2007 Altima, yet the dealership where it was purchased claims they've never seen one break before. There have been no accidents/towing/driving conditions that should have caused this to break. I drive 8 miles per day through a residential neighborhood. This is a huge safety concern and I'm disappointed in the quality of mine (and others') Altima.

Upon inspection of an unknown metal tube hanging visibly next to the driver's side rear wheel, I was able to determine that the sway bar had deteriorated and broke. It is a very poorly designed hollow tube steel. My vehicle has approx 43,000 miles on it. I did research and found this to be a common yet unadressed issue with Nissan.

The stabilizer sway bar for the Nissan Altima just broke on its own under normal conditions. I was just driving going speed limit on a local road and the bar snapped. Although I had an accident with this vehicle 4 years ago, the car still ran smoothly because it was minor. The bar snapped on its own and we drive this vehicle with care.

I recently discovered the rear sway bar snapped on my 2007 Nissan Altima. A look at the bar shows it was a clean break with no signs of damage to any areas around the bar. A quick search online turned up other complaints of 2007 Altima drivers that say they have the same problem with the sway bar snapping in the same place and with no signs of damage. It appears there is a larger issue at hand with this piece of equipment and it needs to be addressed.

Rear sway bar snapped. This car is driven in normal weather conditions at normal driving speeds, on smooth roads(to school and church). Have not driven over anything or had any collisions. The bar just snapped all of a sudden( we saw it hanging out from under the car).

Rear sway bar broke during normal driving / operation. The sway bar on the driver's side broke through at the driver's side bushing. The broken section was eventually observed dangling beneath vehicle causing obvious safety concerns. The exact milage of component failure is unknown as bar likely was supported by bushing for sometime before becoming visable. This situation really warrents a recall in my opinion.

2007 Nissan Altima 3.5se rear sway bar snapped in two while driving. There were no damage to the surrounding area where the bar snapped. At close inspection, the bar is hollow inside. There are web blogs that I have found where other owners have experienced the same problem. Please see here... wiki.answers.com/Q/should_the_2007_nissan_altima_rear_sway_bar_be_recalled. please look into this matter as this is a safety problem that Nissan needs to address immediately.
