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.

Vehicle has spent its life in upstate New York ware weather conditions wet and roads are salted I washed under carriage regularly to prevent corrosion but after winter the vehicles front support bracket connected to the frame that holds the front axle and lower control arm to the frame separated from the frame causing the front wheel to separate as well I was very lucky I noticed the noise and did not take drive it at any speed because the result would have been catastrophic I feel that it is a flaw in the design and that a recall should mandatory for Nissan.
