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.

2002 Nissan Maxima Owner Comments

problem #1

Sep 152005

Maxima 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 28,000 miles


: the contact stated there was a recall NHTSA campaign 01V357000 concerning the engine. However, the recall did not correct the problem. The service engine light continued to illuminate which caused the contact to fail inspection. Although the vehicle displayed no obvious problems, the contact took the vehicle to an independent repair shop. The repair shop performed a diagnostic test, which detected a problem with the crank shaft position sensors. Both crank shaft sensors were replaced as were the previous sensors as indicated in the recall. The manufacturer offered no reimbursement because the repair was not performed at an authorized dealership. Updated 2/7/2006 -
