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.

2016 Nissan Altima Owner Comments

"takata recall" I have a 2016 Nissan Altima that I have owned about 6 months. The windshield wipers do not clear the windshield very well when it is raining. It is very hard to see when it is raining and it is scary. I have owned 2 other Nissan's, a 2007 Altima and a 2011 Altima and have never had this issue. It seems like the wiper blade is not close enough to the windshield to clear it properly. I mentioned it at the dealership and the serviceman said they have had other complaints but no recall. I asked if he thought it would help to replace them and he said there was no guarantee. We were in panama city, fl last weekend and had our son-in-law and grandchild with us and it started pouring rain. We could barely see, they were trying to look out the side windows to see how to stay on the road. If the wipers would clear the windshield properly this would not be an issue. We were all scared to death. We were barely moving and was right at our condo. It would be nice if a recall could take place to adjust or repair this issue. The wipers won't even clear a bug off the windshield if you wet it with wiper fluid and try to rinse it off. This is very dangerous. Please help. Thank you for your assistance.
