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.

2009 Nissan Altima Hybrid Owner Comments

problem #1

Altima Hybrid 4-cyl

  • 120,000 miles


The driver side and passenger side front door actuators stopped working on my Nissan when I use my fob or the door button to open. I press the button and the door locks will only move part of the way, but will not fully lock or unlock the door. I have to put the physical key into the lock and twist to open the door. I know this is my door actuators because the exact same thing happened 4 months ago to my rear two doors. I replaced them and the doors work in the rear now, but I believe the original parts are faulty and that is why they are going out in the front. I should not have to replace them in a 5 year old car. I am a young woman living in an urban area and require swift entry in and out of my vehicle to remain safe. This is why I require use of my fob.
