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.

Complaint sent to NTSB; Possible "Takata Recall." These particular make, models and year, vehicles have been known to have problems where the airbags have not deployed after have high speed accidents. I am very scared to drive this vehicle right now because the airbag indicator light is on and I have been told by an authorized Nissan dealer and two other separate automobile repair shops that the air bags must be replaced, at a cost of over $500.00, to insure their integrity and that they will properly deploy in the unfortunate case of an accident. Right now I can't even drive the car because it will not pass inspection due to the fact the failed air bag indicator light is illuminated! I have seen that there are too many cars of this same make, model, and year that have complaints of this same nature, exhibiting the same airbag failure warning light anomalies and worst of all, many of them not deploying after high speed accidents when they should have! Please include these vehicles in the Takata recalls, as it has shown to have an significant manufactures defect, which will eventually claim some lives if not addressed ASAP; please do not let me or someone else lose their life due to this issue not being addressed approcriatly and immediately! I trust that this information will land on the desk of someone who will establish the facts I have presented here today and take the public's safety to heart and don't leave this issue up to whatever fate may come of it! Thank you for hearing my voice, it represents many others who still drive this same vehicle; even though the numbers of us are much less at this time than when the vehicle was first manufactured; we still deserve the same consideration given to all of the newer vehicles are receiving especially due to the fact that numbers of those vehicles and drivers are much greater! Sincerely, D.T. Jr.
