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.

2004 Nissan pathfinder Armada with numerous problems. Customer states the vehicle has had some of these problems washer tank/motor/level sensor, electrical worked after key was removed from the ignition, and it had brake failure. The tires were wearing unevenly. There was a water leak coming from the passenger front floor board. The dealer installed a hose to the ac drain. The front rotors were replaced due to them being warped and the rear rotors were resurfaced. The passenger window would not roll up, due to it being off track. While driving, the engine suddenly shut down. The consumer removed the key from the ignition, but the wipers, horn, headlights and other electrical instruments kept on working.

I purchased a Nissan Armada in April 2004 and two months later had to bring it to dealer for repair as the brakes were shuddering causing tremendous shimmy in the steering wheel. The dealership, Nissan thousand oaks, did not replace the "warped rotors", instead "switching" them around and replacing the brake pads. The additional problem of a rattle and squeaking sound from dashboard resulted in the dealership realigning the dashboard properly. Two months later I was back at the dealership to fix the brakes again. This time I demanded that the inferior rotors be replaced with higher-quality rotors. They replaced the factory-installed rotors with new rotors (told better quality rotors) and they also had to replace the brake pads again. Additionally, there I was experiencing an intermittent problem with the A/C; it would sometimes run very hot air. They checked it out and found that the clutch fan needed to be replaced; this part is on order and I will have to return for installation. Also, I asked them to once again fix a squeaking and rattling issue that seemed to be coming from the dashboard again and also intermittent failure of the stereo controls located on the steering wheel. According to their mechanics, the sound problem and stereo controls problem did not occur while my vehicle was in their possession. A week later, August 12, 2004, I had to return to have the clutch fan replaced and this time I also requested that one of their mechanics drive the vehicle with me so that I could point out the squeaking issue. The mechanic heard the sound problem this time and I am told they will try to fix this issue. I have not had a problem again, as yet with the stereo controls on the steering wheel.
