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.

2003 Nissan Maxima Owner Comments

  • miles


This is a mileage issue. I bought on July 8, 2005 from empire Nissan, Ontario, ca a 2003 350-Z vehicle that a an odometer reading of 11684. On July 11, my insurance agent checked on line with carfax on the history of this car. Per carfax report, mileage as of Dec. 15, 2003 was 12,243 and as of March 2, 2004, it was 12, 244. Upon carfax advice, we can either notify your office or the California dept of motor vehicle. Dmv advised us to bring it to the dealer's attention because their records only show 1 registration upon the purchase of the first original buyer. Then, the mileage was 8 miles. It has not been smogged nor re-registered. I have brought the matter to empire Nissan on the evening of July 13, 2005. I was asked to wait and they said they will research the matter & call me on July 14, 2005. I got a call and am going there in the evening. I was told by other dealers that I have the right to return the car & be reimbursed for everything. Please help me. What is the right recourse for this case?
