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.

Check engine light keeps coming on, had to replace idle control module twice for $500 each time because engine diagnosis indicated failure. Car does not start right away, had to press pedal lightly to restart even after idle control fixed. Failed smog check, discovered catalytic converter failed, had to replace for $800 further diagnosis: Ignition coil number 4 and air flow meter failed, serviceman said this is rather common with Maxima.
