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.

2015 Nissan Leaf Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 202015


  • 700 miles


My 2015 Leaf S is 3 weeks old with less than 700 miles. I was descending an 8% grade hill in B mode with a sharp bend at the bottom. As I went to apply the brakes, the pedal went to the floor and B mode cut out. The car was now rolling down the hill and accelerating under gravity with no brakes and without B mode slowing the car. I was expecting to hit a brick wall at the bottom of the hill when suddenly, after no more than two seconds, the brakes and B mode came back on and I safely stopped. On reflection after the incident, it was as if the whole computer/electronics momentarily shut down and then rebooted. I didn't notice if the dash lights went off or not.
