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.

Armada 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 22,000 miles
The contact owns a 2005 Nissan Armada. The vehicle has Continental Contitrac aw, size P276/70R18 tires. On June 15, 2007, the vehicle was taken to a mechanic for a tire rotation. The mechanic observed that all four tires were worn. The manufacturer agreed that the tires had premature wear and tread separation and advised the contact to have the tires diagnosed. Claim number 5071419263 was filed with Continental tires on July 16, 2007. Continental agreed to pay 50% of the cost to replace the tires, but the contact feels this is inadequate due to recall number 02T012000 (tires:tread/belt). Her VIN is excluded from the recall. The failure location includes all four tires on the vehicle. The repair location included replacing all of the tires. The current mileage was 23,600 and failure mileage was 22,000. Updated 08/16/07.

Armada 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 3,500 miles
Purchased 2005 Armada in may by June vehicle went into service because a noise was coming from the rear side. 2 attempts to fix and part was replaced. August 2005 taken to dealer again because of shaking while braking, and front rotors /pads were replaced, and rear rotors resurfaced. January 2006 vehicle taken back to dealer because there was a grinding. Apparently the problem were the tires that needed balancing and rotating. Another problem was the liftgate, it did not want to open and close automatically. My car has been in the shop for 3 days and they still did not know what the problem could be. As another consumer mentioned the stability of this vehicle was very poor, I have swirved sharply to the left when braking at 50 mph or more. According to the Nissan service they have not found anything wrong with this.
