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.

    • Date Announced: JULY 26, 2005
    • Vehicles Affected: 90,016

    Summary: Certain vehicles fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard no. 225, "child restraint anchorage systems." The lower anchorage brackets in the rear seats do not meet the location requirement in this standard. This may cause difficulty in attaching some child seats to these brackets.

    Consequence: If a child seat is not properly secured, there is an increased risk of injury to the seat occupant in the event of a crash.

    Actions: Dealers will replace the lower anchorage brackets with modified brackets to ensure that the standard is met. The recall began on August 28, 2006. The infiniti Q45 model vehicles are being campaigned under a separate recall (please see 05V374000). Owners should contact Nissan at 1-800-647-7261 or infiniti at 1-800-662-6200.
