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 Leaf Owner Comments

During daylight hours, whether in the sun or in the shade, both side view mirrors show only the image of the dashboard. It is impossible to see anything other than the reflection of the dashboard unless you roll down the windows. If you email me I'll send you pics of this condition in both sun and shade. Neither the dealer nor the Leaf customer service people at Nissan seem to care. They claim there are comparatively few complaints.

Washer fluid nozzles spray aimed too low. Cannot clean windshield effectively. Only the lower portion of windshield is spray leaving the middle to top portion not clean. Very dangerous during winter as the salt from road will block vision. Wiper with poor sprayed fluid amount/location will only smear the windshield and cause poor visibility.
