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.

2012 Nissan Armada Owner Comments

Armada 4WD 8-cyl

I hit the button to close the rear lift gate. I then stepped away and when coming back around the corner I did not cut the corner wide enough and went right into the gate which continued to close on my head. This resulted in a laceration to my forehead, a concussion and a trip to the er. At my admission, I was rushing around the corner so I thought perhaps that maybe I did not give it enough time to sense me and retract. However, I have since "tested" this automatic close feature with my arm and it does not sense it and continues to close. Obviously, this time I was aware of what I was doing so I had time to retract my arm. I am left with a permanent scar on my forehead but I fear this could potentially have even worse consequences for someone else in the future, especially a child.
