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.

Passenger airbag turned off. Cannot turn back on. Now have flashing red warning light. Seems ridiculous to have this safety failure fail on a car bought in August 2011. Nissan dealer (elk grove, ca) says they've never heard of this. I don't believe them.

Passenger seat airbag on/off switch sensor needs replacement according to Nissan dealer. Passenger airbag "off" light is flashing even with 125 pound passenger in seat. Nissan couldn't tell me whether or not passenger airbag was really on or off. Quoted $2400 to replace the passenger seat airbag switch and seat assembly because is no longer under warranty according to Nissan. This appears to be exactly the problem covered by 2013 Leaf recall for hardware manufacturing problem in same sensor.
