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.

Noticed a knocking noise towards the rear of the car. Just rotated the tires and discovered that the rear sway bar was broke in half. We have 41000 miles on the vehicle so this seems to be a defect. I will have it repaired at my expense.

I was walking up to my car when I saw something dangling near the rear driver side wheel. It turned out to be the rear sway bar had broken into two pieces. My mechanic friend insisted to remove it right away as it would be too dangerous to drive. When we removed it, there was indication of rusting inside the sway bar. Nissan dealers would not replace it under warranty as my car had exceeded 60,000 miles. I am now searching for new sway bar to replace it.

Altima 4-cyl

  • 38,000 miles
2007 Nissan Altima, rear sway bar broke just inside of the passenger side mounting bracket. Rust was the ultimate condition which led to failure, but defect in the original part must have been present for corrosion to begin. Light highway and city conditions. Car never overloaded or abused. Replaced with new sway bar at owners expense and labor. I have kept the old part for reference if a recall were to take place in the future.

I drove my wife's car today I noticed a clunk noise coming from the rear of the vehicle. Since I work in a repair facility I put the car in the air to notice that the rear swaybar has snapped in two. I called Nissan but there are no open campaigns. I own three Nissan I think the manufacture should take care of it. 2007 Nissan Altima with 22,163 miles on it. There are no marks around sway bar it just rusted thru. This should not happen to a car a little over three years old.

I own a 2007 Nissan Altima. I purchased this vehicle new in July 2007. I had to replace the tires @16,000 miles. I had problems with the tire pressure light on the dash always coming on for no apparent reason. The A/C compressor had to be replaced at approximately 37,000 mi. The second year I owned it, at a cost of $750. Now, just after my third anniversary of ownership the rear sway bar has broken. In checking on the internet, I find that all these are common problems. However this sway bar problem is a danger for personal safety. The bar is made out of a hollow tube and it rusted into close to where the bar joins the frame. I have never had an accident, had the car towed or driven on anything but paved roads. It just broke for no apparent reason other than poor materials. Of course this is not covered either!!! I feel this should be a recall item and owners should be reimbursed for their expense.

2007 Nissan Altima wears & cups rear tires so bad the steel belts show and the tires have to be replaced at 20,000 miles. I had the rear springs, shocks and wheel bearings replaced and rear wheels aligned and tires still showed the same damage at 20,000 miles. This type of wear could cause driver to loose control of the car.

Rear stabilizer/sway bar broke and fell down next to the rear suspension. The broken part should not have failed and could have caused damage to rear brake/suspension resulting in loss of control. I called local Nissan service manager and he indicated they had observed sway bar failure, but there were no service bulletins/recalls.

I own a 2007 Nissan Altima. I started to notice that the car was not as stable as it used to be. As it turns out, the rear sway bar had snapped into two. I must mention that the car is used for a commute over paved roads and has never been in any accident. Apparently, this has happened to many people (there are complaints all over the web). The rear sway bar is made out of a hollow tube and it broke broke on the passenger side of the vehicle, next to the bracket that holds the sway bar.
