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.

2000 Nissan Maxima Owner Comments

problem #1

I have a complaint against Gettel Nissan of Sarasota, FL. They made a replacement key for my vehicle and it was not made correctly, even though I paid over $150+. I didn't even use it until I bought my new car, another Maxima. I tried to start the old Maxima and it wouldn't start. I thought it was the battery or worse. I ended up paying for someone to try to jump the battery and then had to have it towed to my mechanic, several miles away. This was a significant expense. I did not know what was wrong, but the mechanic said it was either the key or the security module. It turned out to be the replacement key, which clearly had a defect in that the cover to the chip fell off and apparently it wouldn't work properly. Gettel of Sarasota did not produce a proper replacement key.

I took time out of my busy schedule to go to Gettel Nissan of Sarasota today, only to be told that I was one month off the warranty, which expired in Jan 2011. I saw the service manager, Charlie Apple, who would not stand behind his service department and replace the key, which was never used. I will never deal with this Nissan dealership again.
