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.

Maxima 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 18,000 miles


I have had the xenon hid headlights of my vehicle stolen three times over the past 6 months. I implore anyone even considering purchasing a 2002 or 2003 Maxima to reconsider. This is a marked car, and my attempts to gain the manufacturer's attention have failed. I hope if thieves take the lights again, that they steal the whole car, and relieve me of this curse.

Maxima 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
Due to Nissan's bad design of the 2003 Maxima model, the xenon hid headlights could be removed from a locked car within less than 30 seconds. As a result the driver of the car is at risk.
