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.

2008 Nissan Altima Owner Comments

  • 60,000 miles


My 2008 Nissan Altima master break cylinder needed to be replaced due to a leak after around 60K miles. Before the brake light came on there was a reduced braking capacity and at around 35-40K miles I bought new brake pads due to this loss of fluid thinking the brake pads needed to be replaced. After taking the wheels off I found the pads to be just fine and topped off the fluid. I had noted this many times when I brought it in for an oil change but I was told the brakes were in good shape. During one of the scheduled maintenances' the technician noticed the leaking brake master cylinder.
