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.

2001 Nissan Maxima Owner Comments

problem #2

Nov 302011

Maxima GLE 3.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 104,728 miles


Checked with Nissan North America for some sort of rebate. Out of warranty. Third party did the work using the same diagnostic equipment. Felt I should get the parts @ cost. No dice! I felt that having three significant repairs in 2011 was not right for vehicle of this quality. CAT Converter, IAC module & ECM module. $2,436.76 in repairs was not good. I felt they should give something back. I will not recommend the Maxima to anyone.
