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.

The contact owns a 2002 Nissan Maxima. While driving over bumps at any speed a clanking noise could be heard coming from the front end of the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer where they were unable to diagnose the failure. The failure continued so the vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic where the contact was told there was a recall for the suspension. An authorized dealer was notified and the contact was told that the vehicle was not included in the recall associated with NHTSA campaign id number 02V146000, suspension:front:control arm:lower arm. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was unknown and the current mileage was 120,000.
