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 Frontier Owner Comments

Traction control can snap the drivers neck. With traction control on the vehicle can apply the brake on the drive wheel that is spinning. This happening if you are not going in a straight line can snap your neck if driver is not looking straight ahead. Note when the brake is applied it is not slowly, it is snapped on, this is painful and could kill. Plus I do not think the drive-line parts will last very long. Also I would like a way to make sure the system will not 'come on' by default. When this happened to me I was pulling out from a stop making a left hand turn and the inner wheel spun on the wet pavement, the 'system' applied the brake while I was looking left and my neck was twisted more to the left then right forward displacing my neck. Note 'traction control' is deadly !
