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.

Service engine soon light popped on. Read owners manual. Advised to open and re-close gas cap. Did that. Light did not go out. December 10, gas gauge indicated empty. Dte light appeared ------. filled up. Gas gauge didn't move. Then, December 12, 2008 gas gauge suddenly rose to a little over half tank. Dte odometer display shows 78 miles to empty with over half tank. Looked up problem online. Hundreds of people with same problem in Pathfinders and X-terras. No warranty coverage. I have extended warranty. My 2006 Pathfinder has 71K on it. Nissan says $600 to repair. Seems like this is a product/manufacturing defect.
