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.

Recall 16V244000 airbag light stays on with my wife in pass seat ~ 50% of time. Brought to dealer three times but not fixed. Nissan cs no assistance to fix. Works ok in other vehicles when she is in pass seat.

Airbag sensor is according to the Nissan dealer only activating the airbag if the passenger is over 120lbs. My wife is under this weight and the airbag off light is on every time we drive somewhere. Nissan has tried to play it off saying it's actually safer for an adult under 120lbs to have the airbag off. This is completely unacceptable and I do not have this problem in my VW or my Mazda.

The contact owns a 2016 Nissan Altima. The contact stated that the air bag warning indicator for the passenger side air bag illuminated intermittently. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where it was confirmed that there was a recall for the air bags and that the air bag module software would have to be updated to repair the sensor issue. The vehicle was repaired, however the failure recurred. The contact had not received notification of a recall. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 898.
