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

problem #1

May 212003

Maxima 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


I purchased the 2003 Nissan maximathe end of January 2003, I was never told that the headlights on these cars are easily removeable, by simply popping them out with a screw driver. So on May 21, my car's headlights were stolen. I complained to the Nissan Corp but was told that there was noth they could do about the problem. They are aware of the situation, in fact they have already introduced the 2004 model with the headlights tamper proof. The police told me that this model car is very popular with the thieves and I should not keep this C ar in the street for more then 10mins at a time. So basically, I bought a car to keep under lock and key and not use at all. Why can't Nissan recall these cars and fix the problem, because every time the lights are stolen, the demage is more then $2,000, also what happens if I am a distance away and they steal my headlights, I will not be able to drive back home or risk driving with no headlights and maybe hurt myself or someone else. Please check into this matter and advise me.
