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

2002 Nissan Maxima had ABS module failure. Consumer states that the brakes failed without warning. The consumer stated the problem began with a very loud ear piercing screeching noise when the brakes were applied. The sound was intermittent, so it was difficult for the dealer to duplicate. The consumer went to the dealer several times to have the brakes checked, but they were found to be ok. The consumer stated on one occasion, her husband applied the brakes and the vehicle did not stop, the ABS came on as he approached the intersection. The dealer informed the consumer the ABS actuator and the rear ABS sensor had failed. The screeching noise was due to a bad wheel bearing.
