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.

Altima Hybrid

  • 42 miles


My 2010 Nissan Altima hybrid has a problem wherein a (likely computer software) defect prevents the regenerative braking system from engaging when the cruise control is on and set and the brake pedal is depressed. Over a wide range of speeds, setting the cruise control has the effect of locking out the regenerative braking system. This is an easily repeatable and demonstrable problem and occurs every day. While the traditional braking system still functions, the net effect is that the brakes are less effective than they should be, fuel economy is reduced, brake wear is increased, and pollution is increased.
