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.

I own a 2008 Nissan Altima (VIN# [xxx]). I have to two questions for you: 1) why has there not been a recall on the dashboards towards their stickiness & melting? especially since Toyota recalled theirs because of that. 2) why has there not been a recall on the TPMS? it stays on all the time. With it on all the time, how are supposed to tell when the air is low. If I turn it off, it won't come back on even when the tires are low. If I replace one, I have to replace all of them. Ntb has even tried putting nitrogen in the tires. But that did not work. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

Altima

  • 15,700 miles
I bought my 2008 Nissan Altima from champion Nissan, katy, Texas. I paid $2000 for four boss wheels and tires. At 15,000 miles, I had two tires fall apart and have belts to separate making the car un-drivable. Now I have a third tire which seems like it is trying to do the same;however, I have had to stop driving the car for safety reasons. I contacted champion Nissan(281-644-1100 ) and spoke with two managers, rafael and phil;, and have been put off for ten days now because they are trying to pass the buck to the vendor which sold them the boss wheels w/ tires. They have found out that the business is now "out of business" and they seem to be in meetings all the time. Can someone help me convince them that since the car was purchased with the no good tires from them, they ought to put decent tires on my car so I can drive it? the warranty book they gave me describes Goodyear, bf goodrich and dunlop tires....nothing is mentioned about nankang tires. Help!

2008 Nissan Altima sedan with 13000 miles. The tire pressure monitor system does not work as it is supposed to. The warning light is on if the tires are at the specified pressure of 32 psi as specified by the placard affixed to the driver side door. I went to the dealer and the fix was to increase the tire pressure to between 35 and 40 psi. That is unacceptable as the handling changes drastically, the ride deteriorates and I'm sure the life of the tires is shortened. After discussing the repair with the service department, they informed me that since the pressure monitoring is a government mandated item, increasing the pressure is all they are required to do by Nissan, and that there is nothing else they can do. That is an unacceptable fix. I was reading in a Nissan help group website that the problem is an often happening even on cars right out of the showroom.
