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 Cube Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 052014

Cube 4-cyl

  • 8,500 miles


For the 2nd time in a month suddenly the vdc light (vehicle dynamic control) was on followed by the service engine soon. The first time was around 8000 miles, the 2nd time was 9500 miles (11 months after it was purchased new). The dealer (walser Nissan in burnsville, mn) could not find the problem. The symptom was the same, the engine lost power, couldn't go beyond 30 mph, as if it went into limp-home model. When I turned the engine off, locked it and came back in a few minutes later, it reset itself. The engine ran fine, it was as if there was computer or sensor glitch. But the service engine soon light remained on until the dealer reset it. This can be a safety issue, what if I were driving in a busy highway and the engine suddenly slowed down 30 mph ?
