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

It is unfortunate that Nissan raved about the paint that they shot diamonds during testing. This has to be the worst paint I have ever seen on a car. I had more rock chips by 5000 miles than I did on my old 1987 Nissan. It had far better paint than the 2000 model and it cost about 12k less. Pretty depressing...and Nissan won't do a thing about it.

I have only had this car for 14 months and have found a tremendous number of chips and scratches from normal city driving. In all of 10 years of driving a 1990 Acura Integra in similar freeway driving, I never had such chips and scratches in the paint. It is just unbelieveable how fragile the finish is on this car. This is especially ironic how Nissan advertised about their finish testing process by shooting diamonds at the paint.
