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.

My daughter's service engine check light keeps coming on. She has pulled over at the side of the road over and over due to this since we have told her it may be unsafe to continue driving. After doing extensive research, I find that thousands of 2001 Nissan Pathfinders have this problem. Mileage is very low when this occurs. I am taking it in again to have another "sensor" replaced but this does not seem to solve the problems and the car shakes badly.F hundred/thousands are having this problem with the 2001, why has there not been a recall? E spent 800 on tires because I was told it shook due to this, then they decided it was another sensor.
