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 #1

Maxima 6-cyl

  • miles


Numerous problems with vehicle's front rotors. This was the consumer's third set of front rotors and the latest set warped. The vehicle vibrated and pulled to the side when the consumer applied the brakes. The vehicle had been in the shop for brake work six times. The consumer owned many Nissan's and stated that this was the first major problem ever experienced. There was still a slight vibration coming from the rear brakes, moaning/groaning sounds from the front right, creaking/popping when turning, when setting the cruise at 70 mph(cruise control cable was not properly adjusted), it felt as if the gas was applied, and bumps could be felt in the road through the steering wheel.. it took a long time for the air condition to cool the vehicle.
