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.

A few years ago I got a recall for suspension might come loose if it gets rusted from the salt that the City Of Chicago lays down, not mention the thousand of potholes. The first Nissan store that I took it too was AutoBarn, located in Evanston, Illinois when I drove it in for services regarding the recall only thing they did was spray paint the strut housing or body frame.

Then I took it to Star Nissan trying to get it fix again. They immediately told me they are not getting paid, and they did nothing. Then Nissan located in Hoffman Estate, same thing no work done. Finally the 1997 Nissan Pathfinder SE frame and body part came disconnected when I tried find out through different body shops in Chicago, and one in Evanston, IL three shop confirm that frame had came apart, and was dangerous to drive.

Today March 18, 2016 time 15:03 I call State Farm and told them that Dempster Auto Rebuilders refused to fix the problem. No one will touch it.
