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.

Armada

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

While driving on the freeway, my Armada all of a sudden lost power and the check engine light and others came on! I was terrified as I floated thru traffic to avoid an accident! I was in the middle lane and could only swerve across fast lane to get near the freeway divider and out of traffic! let's just say I got over right in the nick of time! the truck died out completely! fuel gauge showed I had about 1/4 tank of gas so I thought it was something wrong with my engine. I had just bought the car 4 days prior (no warranty) so I was really unsure of what was going on! state patrol helped get me over to towing zone and I had the truck towed home. I called the dealer and he stated that the gas gauge might be off a bit and to go ahead and add gas. I did as instructed and my truck started right back up! I researched the issue online and found there were thousands of vehicles with same issue which caused Nissan to issue a recall for the fuel system- recall id# 68293, campaign# 10vo74000. I contacted Nissan consumer svcs and was told that my VIN is not included in this specific recall but to take it in to dealer to verify/ confirm issue. I did so the following week and the mechanic at olympia Nissan gladly confirmed issue with fuel sending unit and was quoted $465 plus tax to replace, which Nissan would not cover. Surprisingly, I received a call earlier today from melody with Nissan consumer svcs to inform me that she was escalating my issue regarding fuel system. I could have caused an accident on the freeway with the truck losing power like that, especially when gas gauge clearly shows truck still has gas! as of that day, I now make sure truck has a full tank of gas at all times! :/ Nissan should step up and take responsibility for these defects before it causes fatal accidents.
