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.

2000 Nissan Maxima Owner Comments

Frustrated!! My AC was acting funny. The air would blow hot (only occasionally- once every 2 weeks or so) for no reason. Then one day my car starting running hard and making an odd clanking noise. I took it to Nissan and was told that my AC clutch compressor broke, my AC shaft broke, and my idler pulley bearing broke. I was informed that I could not drive my car and was told that I had to replace my drive belts and compressor unit immediately or could end up having problems with my air pump and alternator. When I asked why this happens I was told that "cars break sometimes." I was also told that none of the cost would be covered by Nissan because my car has over 60,000 miles. Bogus!
