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.

Driving at highways of greater than 40 mph and beginning to brake, the vehicle will cut off. It will restart; however, this has started to be a frequent and dangerous occurrence. After several times, I did some research and found that there was a voluntary recall campaign bulletin R3022 and NHTSA #03V-455 (engine sensors), being reported on Nov. 17, 2003. Nissan North America, Inc. Says that the recall campaign has been closed out. NHTSA says the recall campaign is open for 10 yrs from the date the recall was reported, being Nov. 17, 2013. Today's date is Aug. 23, 2013. Nissan will not honor the recall. The cost to repair is $625.19. Additionally, there was a voluntary recall campaign bulletin R2006 (transverse link replacement) which Nissan North America, Inc. Claims they cannot see. Lastly, there is another recall R1302 (front passenger air bag inflator) of August 14, 2013, that Nissan claims they aren't showing as well. I am utterly frustrated and fed up with Nissan North America, Inc. The dealers will not honor any recall that Nissan North America, Inc. Does not recognize even if you have the documentation of the recall.
