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

Altima 4-cyl

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).

I think my car has a safety issue. The wheels are light, whenever there is a light snow, rain, wind it slips a lot. I drive 90 miles a day for work and I am really concern about my safety. July 26th, 2012 was a rainy and windy day and my car slept, I wasn't speeding at all. All Altima owners say the same. Nissan needs to do something about it.

Vehicle rides unstable. Sharp turns causes car to become unstable, loses controls of turn. Tires or rims unbalanced. Have vehicle seem many times and the problem can not be corrected. Neither representative would confirm problem. Told by american tires sale associate, Nissan will not reimburse them for correcting the problems. They rebalanced the tires, but this did not correct the problem. Advise right front tire problem, but they would not give a write up on the problem. My vehicle has had too many recalls. Hanlees richmond hilltop Nissan should have known about the many recalls, prior to selling this vehicle. March 26, 2009 had car in for servicing, driver seat broken, brake hardware damaged - brakes replaced. Mileage at time of servicing 12,800. I had complained about these problems from day one. I spoke with the finance associate about replacing the car, but he refused.. I have noted from servicing order on March 26, 2009 - heat shield problem - high RPM on initial startup. Antioch service advisor did not address this matter, because Nissan has not issued a correction order on this as of today. This is a brand new car that has many problems from the first day of purchase! I have tried so many times to get help from the service center as well as Nissan consumer services. Not help!!!
