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.

2005 Nissan Armada Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 262010

At any given time, the brake light will appear on the instrument panel. During this time extra effort is required to apply the brakes when trying to stop. When the brakes are applied, there is a horrible grinding sound coming from the front of the vehicle. Turning the engine off and back on can sometimes "fix" it but on this particular day it did it 5 times in a row. This problem has been known to happen to drivers of 2005 Nissan Armadas for a few years and Nissan has yet to perform/issue any corrective actions. When you take the vehicle to have the problem diagnosed they tell you it's the brake booster and it will cost $900+ to fix. It amazed me that it didn't take long for them to tell me the solution when I told them the obviously the dealership has heard of the problem before....why hasn't/isn't Nissan doing anything to help its customers?
