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.

Vehicle wasn't part of the recall regarding the suspension due to the VIN, but experienced the problem stated on the recall. The vehicle had to get a realignment, the bottom cover was loose and the vehicle constantly pulled to the right/left and there was an alternator problem where the battery did not charge. The consumer requested assistance with getting the vehicle fully checked since the problems encountered occurred during the warranty period. Recall#02V146000.

problem #1

Dec 202003

Maxima 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 45,650 miles
Approx 1 mo ago my battery and brake light would light intermittently with no mechanical effect noted. The battery and alternator tested good and the cause was unknown. Then one day on the highway with cruise control at 75 mph the lights came on. Several minutes later the cruise control shut off by itself and the ABS light came on and the airbag light began flashing. During slowing to exit the the highway all the instrument panels began 'bouncing' with unstable readings and the engine seemed as if it was going to die. I exited to the shoulder of the highway and put the car in park and turned the car off. The car required a jump to restart it. I replaced the battery since one cell was partially bad. Nonetheless, the battery and brake light have come on again. Nissan indicates a new alternator is required on the car at 3 years old and 45,700 miles.
