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 Leaf Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 272012


  • 50 miles


Page 1-21 of the 2012 Nissan Leaf owner manual has an illustration of a forward-facing convertible child restraint incorrectly installed, with the caption "latch webbing-mounted attachment". the illustration shows the forward-facing convertible child restraint installed with the lower anchorage flexible connector strap (latch webbing) routed through the rear-facing child restraint belt path. No webbing is routed through the forward-facing child restraint belt path. This illustration may suggest to users that this is how to route the "latch webbing" in a forward-facing child restraint illustration, which may lead to injury. This illustration is common to many models of 2003 and later Nissan vehicles, not just the Leaf.
