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.

After replacing the sensor. The reverse lights wouldn't turn on. So I had to take it back in for repair. It was another transmission problem. I had to replace the battery three times in the short time I owned the car. No one can explain why it sucks the life out of the battery. Very annoying. I will never purchase a Nissan vehicle.
