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.

Steering the vehicle, gradually became harder (it would pull slightly to the right. When checking air pressure, I noticed the front tires were worn excessively. I then took the vehicle in for repair, where I was told I must have hit a curve or had been involved in an accident, neither was the case. I had to have the complete front-end of the vehicle replaced by auto nation South bay Nissan of hawthorne, ca invoice #685460, which included: Rack and pinion, steering angle sensor, gear and linkage, switch assembly combination, and core.
