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.

The front end of the vehicle was making a strange noise upon inspection I realized the front left strut tower separated from the chassie of the vehicle. After inspection from a registered repair shop they rendered the vehicle unrepairable due to safety liability.

This is for my Nissan Pathfinder 1998 model vehicle. From about 2008 I am noticing corrosion from under the vehicle. I was not able to find where to log a complaint, now I know. 1). the bottom of the car rusting completely I think. 2. there is big noise from the bottom of the car feeling like something could be rusted and broken. 3. the 2 side running boards are corroded and broken and separated from the vehicle. I don't feel safe driving this vehicle now.

Front left wheel well at strut mount has rusted through at 155000 making it impossible to drive car. Have found other examples of this problem on the internet. Problem could result in a serious accident if failure occurs while towing. Dealer says car can be repaired for $3000. Contacted Nissan to see if they will pay for all/part of repair.
