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.

My car is again at the dealer being serviced. This car has been in the shop for airbag service on 11 separate occasions. This issue has been going on since 10 months after I drove off the lot with the car. I am convinced Nissan has been given a reasonable opportunity to fix the problem. I now need results so I can drive a car that will work as desgined.
