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.

The contact owns a 2013 Nissan Altima (N/a). The contact stated that the headrest caused the contact back pain, head aches and numbness in the arm. The contact took the vehicle back to the dealer where the dealer turned the head rest around. The contact stated that after the head rest was turned, there was no more pain. The failure mileage was 1,000.

The headrest is tilted forward so far that it makes it very uncomfortable to drive. Your head is facing the instrument panel almost, instead of facing the road. It makes for a very uncomfortable and painful driving experience. I hope someone can do something about that since the dealer can't.
