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.

Had a throttle body cleaning done on my car and as soon as I left the mechanic shop my engine light came on. I have since had to replace the throttle body and still my car will not relearn (and that was done at a Nissan dealer), now they say I need a new computer. I have also lost 75 miles a tank in gasoline sine the fuel system cleaner. The shop will not take responsibility, Nissan will not take responsibility, and the 3 step fuel system cleaner manufacturer will not take responsibility. In fact, they all blame eachother and still my car is not fixed, im -75 miles a tank, idle is high, idle's high when I push the brake pedal, engine light wont go off and still wont re-learn.

2002 Nissan Maxima. Two incidents of the electronic throttle control actuator failing. First failure in 2003 (odometer reading 10460) and another in 2009 (odometer reading 47199). When this unit fails, the vehicle may lose power as it happened to me in 2003 when I couldn't drive more than 15 mph. Both times repaired by Nissan service department. I have repair paperwork if needed. I have contacted Nissan about the problem and they have set up a file number for my notification.
