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.

2008 Nissan Armada Owner Comments

My 2008 Nissan Armada 's interior roof console fell on top of my children and their friend's head without warning. This posed an immediate safety hazard for my children as well as me. After picking up my daughter and her friend from practice, the interior roof console completely fell on top of them. We were all so scared. When I heard the loud noise, I looked in the rear view mirror and wasn't sure what happened. At first I thought we somehow were hit but I quickly realized that it was the console that fell. My rear view was completely obstructed. The console hit two of them on top of the head and they were in the middle row. It also hit my 6 year old on the top of the head who was in the back row. They had to hold it up until I was able to safely stop. It was hanging by the electrical wires for the lights and dvd player. I took pictures and called the local Nissan dealership which never returned any of my phone calls. This is a very expensive replacement for a poorly manufactured console. It's made out of plastic and should be bolted to the roof with metal screws. This is the 4th Nissan that I have owned and sadly I doubt that I will own another unless this safety issues is resolved. I have been a loyal customer for 10 years and introduced 5 families to the Nissan family and if this safety issue isn't resolved at Nissan expense, I will be leaving.

Roof console cracked and is hanging from the roof. This seems to be a common problem from what I have researched. I took it to the Nissan dealership and for them to replace it its going to cost me 3000 that is absurd. I shouldn't have to pay for something that is Nissan problem for using cheap brackets to hold it in place. I would like Nissan to do a recall on these and fix them. I own 3 Nissan cars and after this not sure I want a car that will fall apart and no one wants to make the effort to fix it.
