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.

11/10/10 while driving the brake light came on and the truck was not responding to the brakes I heard a grinding noise and the problem went away after I turned the truck off and restarted it. It has happen like 4 times to my wife while driving with my kids so im very concerned about this problem. I went to the dealer and all they could say was that they needed to get the code for them to try to find out was wrong with it. If there's someone out there that can help before its too late and something serious happens.

The contact owns a 2005 Nissan Armada. The contact stated that if the vehicle accelerates past 35 mph the vehicle will stall. As a consequence her risk for vehicle crash was increased. She took the vehicle to the dealer and had the catalytic converter replaced. The repair did not remedy the failure. The current mileage was 73000. The failure mileage was 22000.

Armada 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 15,000 miles
The vehicle has a consistent, over-accentuated vibration and noise that emanates from the engine compartment when under acceleration, especially minor acceleration in high gear. The noise is loud and distracting, the vibration is pronounced and can be felt in the steering wheel, gas & brake pedal and gear shift. It gives your feet and hands a "buzzy" vibration which is uncomfortable and distracting. It feels and sounds as if a motor mount or some type of vibration damping part has failed and is sending the vibration into the passenger compartment. Local Nissan dealer service dept. Claims "it's supposed to be that way because its got a big engine in it." I think not.
