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.

2009 Nissan Armada Owner Comments

Armada 4WD 8-cyl

Leaving work, I tried to start my car and it tried to turn over but stopped. The dash lights went dim and the needle indicators quivered and the car quit trying to start. I cleaned the battery terminals and the car cranked continuously but wouldnt turn over. After getting it towed to a mechanic whose computer couldnt communicate with the vehicle computer, then a Toyota dealership (no Nissan dealer in my town) who had the same problem, my coworker brought me a copy of a recall by Nissan for his 2006 pathfinder for a engine control module. I had it towed for a 3rd time (total of $415) to the Nissan dealer in helena, mt 65 miles away, they diagnosed the problem as a bad E.C.M. engine control module. The service technician said "I was lucky I wasn't on the highway"!!!! now im out of $1700 for a bad ECM that I was not neglegent in breaking, on a vehicle less than 5 years old. I feel since it was a faulty part, I shouldnt have to pay for it. Now im in more debt!!!
