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.

2004 Nissan Pathfinder with service engine light on. Consumer states that the vehicle had smoke coming from the tail pipe, losing power and wouldn't go over 45 mph. Mechanic stated the vehicle was 4 quarts low on oil. The consumer stated the oil had been changed on Feb 2, 2008. And on April 3, 2008 the consumer was informed the vehicle needed a new engine. The consumer stated it was the dealers fault that the engine needed to be replaced. She believed they failed to put in new oil on the last visit.
