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.

Nissan Pathfinder recall 07V-435 R0705 fuel filler tube and fuel leakage. In January while driving from Colorado through Wyoming our car started puttering and died on busy route 80 in coopers cove outside of laramie, wy at 9:30 pm in a major snow storm. Roads were covered in rock salt and we were lucky to pull over to shoulder where we remained for 2 hours. My 2 daughters were there, one of whom had no coat as we did not expect to be heading North. Temperature was -27. We were pretrified and I kept the light on in car so trucks could see us. Two hours later the police arrived and we were towed 40 miles to a Nissan dealer. Our car remained there for 3 days. Now I know why we were put in harms way. We were lucky to pull over as the road conditions definitely affected the car dying. I have the bill from mccarty Nissan and the motels. I hope that we will be sufficiently reimbursed and that this does not happen to others. It was the most frightening experience for my family but thank god we were safe. My daughter became ill from the -27 degree weather and our motel room which had no heat and had to cut her trip short and return home early leaving from the Colorado springs airport when our vehicle was repaired. Reimbursement for our repairs and inconvenience would be appreciated. Updated 05/13/09.
