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.

problem #1

Armada 4WD 8-cyl

  • 85,000 miles
Vehicle was being driven out of garage at low speed. Suddenly, there was a clunk and loss of control of the front passenger wheel. There were no prior warning signs or symptoms. Upon inspection, the front passenger tie rod had dis-attached itself from the wheel, resulting in no steering control of the front passenger wheel. Had this happened at a speed greater than 25 mph, serious/fatal accident and injury would have been likely. This is a serious malfunction of the system with no prior warning signs. Nissan dealer has confirmed this is a serious issue that is not the result of any owner fault.
