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.

2013 Nissan Armada Owner Comments

problem #2

Oct 312015

While under mild acceleration (from approx. 30mph to 40mph) the transmission coolant line failed, spraying transmission fluid throughout the engine compartment, and causing 1 or more drive belts to slip from the tension system, and wrap themselves around the cooling fan shaft. This resulted in an immediate reduction in power to the vehicles driveshaft, , creating a dangerous driving condition. The friction from the belts binding began to heat up the rubber, and could have caused a fire, which, with transmission fluid sprayed throughout the engine compartment could have immediately engulfed the engine in flame. Vehicle was stopped immediately and towed to a dealership, who acknowledged the transmission coolant line as the point of failure.

Twice, while I thought the vehicle was in park, it began to roll. The first time I caught it right away and igrnored it. The second time was Tuesday March 11, 2014. I arrived and work and parked. It was dark. Put the truck in park, turned off the engine and lights; when I opened the door, I could hear the wind rushing by (I was parked in a parking lot (very slight decline.) anyway, got back in, slammed on the brakes, but still managed to hit the bushes (small trees) in front of me. Why am I able to shut of the car if it's not in park like it says?
