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.

Brakes developed a bad problem with vibrations when braking which acutally giggled the steering wheel. Problem was first repaired at 5,000 miles and they serviced it by turning the rotors. Problem reoccured at 11,000 miles and it was serviced again. This time the rotors could not be turned and they had to replace the rotors, pad kit, and boot kit. At 16,000 miles the problem once again reoccured and at the time the service dept. Said that Nissan has not found a permanent fix for this problem and they once again turned my rotors. I have since called Nissan and was told by their representative that Nissan is only providing "counter-meaures" and has not found a fix and has no date when one will be avail. I feel it is a major safety issue since these problems have occured without evening towing anything and I am pursuing the lemon law in the state of Washington. It is unreasonable to expect people to drive a vehicle which has to have a major break service perfomed every 5,000 miles just to be somewhat safe.

4th time since April 2004 the brakes deteriorate to the point of iminent failure. The steering wheel vibrates and shakes, the brake pedal travel increases, and brakes become unresponsive. Rotors have been cut, pads replaced, rotors replaced, caliper "kits" installed, pins replaced, grease applied, etc. The problem keeps returning. Many other annoyance type problems as well...rattles, navigation system failure, radio replaced, overhead console cracked, replaced window motors and switches, poor wheel alignment from factory.
