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

Maxima 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission

Vehicle is 5 years old,2 weeks out of warranty), extremely well maintained with 43,000 miles. Began hearing a grinding sound coming from the manual transmission. Nissan dealer and a second source identified the problem as the bearings in the transmission. Everyone I try to get an estimate for repairs were suprised that the bearings would go out with such low milage, especially since the transmission had preventive maintainance done by the dealer at 39,000 miles.
