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.

  • 18,000 miles


The contact owns a 2008 Nissan Altima. The contact was driving approximately between 10-15 mph on wet road conditions. When braking the anti-lock brake system failed to engage. The vehicle slid across the roadway and crashed into another vehicle. There were no personal injuries. The police was not called to the scene. The contact was able to drive the vehicle to the residence. The vehicle was towed to an independent mechanic for body damage repairs. In addition, the day before the failure the "vehicle dynamic control off" (vdc) and "slip" warning light indicators illuminated on the instrument panel. The warning indicators remained illuminated until the engine was turned off. The failure mileage was 18,000.
