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.

Car running rough. Service engine soon light on. Took to dealer, told that (1) ignition coil bad but have to replace all (6) per Nissan repair directive. Research shows this to be a common problem wit 01 Maxima, Nissan issued tsb, but no recall.

I have read many horrific stories about peoples ignition coils going bad....I have a feeling my coils are headed for doom soon. I have a 2001 Maxima gle, love the car, but Nissan really needs to do a recall on this. Just because of this and many other problems I've had, I don't think I would ever buy a Nissan again. Go Honda!!

Recently the "check engine soon" light came on. I took it to a Nissan dealership service department. They ran a diagnostic test and said one coil failed but they recommended replacing all six ignition coils, because the other ones will fail one by one soon.
