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.

I own a 2007 6-speed manual transmission Nissan Altima that persistently malfunctions. Since that November date and having reported this problem to the Nissan dealership on January 5, 2009, I have experienced on the highway and city streets with passengers, the manual transmission would not upshift, would not downshift, nor release from the position it was in. After repeatedly returning the vehicle to the Nissan dealership for the same under warranty repair, the same problem persists to date! despite the dealerships claim of clutch master cylinder and transmission replacement, pressure plate and disc replacement, I have no confidence that this problem will cease to occur, as it is idiopathic and the re-occurrence is unpredictable. Thus, operating this vehicle could cause accidental injury or even death. I continue to report my concern to Nissan North America usa and to date have not received any satisfaction to quell the unsafe fear factor in owning and operating this vehicle that has not owned up to the Nissan manufacturer's moniker, "made to drive. Built to last." This internet correspondence serves as my official complaint and request for the Office Of Defects Investigation (ODI) to open an investigation regarding the 2007 6-speed manual transmission Nissan Altima.

After 14,000 miles of use the clutch failed to engage the transmission. While driving up hill and shifting lost all drive gears and forward power. Stranded in traffic unable to get to the side of the road. Problem was that the clutch had burned out which required replacement of the clutch disc.
