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.

CarComplaints.com Notes: The 2013 has a growing number of transmission complaints at low mileage. The issue is part of a class-action lawsuit that says the transmissions shake violently during acceleration between 15mph and 30mph.

Dealer has failed to repair the passenger side air bag after 3.5 years of ownership. The latest recall notice when brought to the dealer again did not result in a repair only more delay as they claimed the part now had to be ordered. However the notice indicated parts were now available

My passenger airbag turns off even when a full size adult of the proper weight is in the front seat. I received a recall notice for this on June 1st 2016. I have continued to try to schedule service for this recall, however, the dealer has notified me that Nissan has still not made the part available to them to fix this issue.

While driving on September 219th, 2016, the airbag indicator light started flashing for under a minute, and then the entire dashboard cluster panel went out. The tachometer, speedometer, gas gauge, driver safety information, lighting and breaks, gear mode, seat belt indicator, engine temperature gauge all went blank as the car was driving straight down a street approximately 45 miles an hour. I pulled the car off of the road to a safe place. Shut it down, and started it again normally. The entire instrument panel has yet to come back on. I was able to get the SUV home, and called some local dealerships to get it in to service. While waiting for a call back, I was able to research, and found that the vehicle is under two recalls, 16V-244 for occs system, and 16V-380 for stop lamp switch.. I was able to get the car to royal Nissan in baton rouge, Louisiana (225) 924-0400 on the 20th of September, 2016. I informed them of the recalls, and they said that they would look into the mater. On the September 21th, service advisor (kenney) called me and said that they did not yet know how to fix the problem, but the car was three years old, and out of warranty and I would have to pay for the repairs myself because they were probably not related to the recalls. That is where it stands.as of September 21st, 2016. I do not think that I am being unreasonable when I think that there is a connection to the flashing indicator lights, and the dashboard going out at the same time.

Airbag sensor recall - part was ordered July 7, 2016. At time sensors appeared to be working. As of August 16th, sensors no longer sensing weight in passenger seat, no longer working. Nissan refusing to provide equivalent long term loaner and dealership (luther Nissan Kia, inver grove heights) also refusing to provide equivalent sized loaner (family needs 3rd row) contacted Nissan regional specialist justin - he said there is nothing Nissan is willing to do (supply part sooner or loaner). Have also escalated to mn attorney generals office. Have also escalated to Nissan executive office (raven), but so far only playing phone tag with. Need assistance with Nissan so that my passenger has an airbag. At times not able to drive vehicle when passenger needs to accompany. Request equivalent sized loaner until parts/repair completed on owned vehicle as well as airbag sensor in working condition after repair. Nissan company portrayed a "we don't care" attitude and wouldn't allow comments to be made "on record" or recorded.

The hood on my vehicle flew open while driving 40 mph down the road. Nissan fixed the issue. The passenger airbag does not work when someone is sitting in passenger seat under 130 lbs. I got a recall notification. I have called Nissan to have them fix this 3 times and they tell me they don't have the part. My husband weighs 128 lbs and the airbag does not detect him sitting in the passenger seat. If I were to get in a wreck the airbag will not deploy with my husband sitting in front passenger seat. I have told Nissan this numerous times but they say they cannot get the part in. I think that is very dangerous.

I had my vehicle to the dealer multiple times for the passenger air bag showing airbag off when I am sitting in the vehicle with the vehicle in motion. Every time I mentioned the problem I was given an excuse as to why it is happening. The way I sit andthe vehicle has to be shut off and on again to correct the problem are excuses given. When the recall was announced I figured the problem would finally be fixed. I was wrong, the problem has become 100 times worse. I brought my vehicle in and a reprogram was performed. Now everytime I get out of the vehicle the light will illuminate saying airbag off and when I sit in the seat and the driver starts to drive it will stay illuminated for about 20-25 minutes at any speed from local to highway. This is extremely dangerous and needs to be looked into for a permanent fix.

I was notified of a recall for the brakes top lamp switch & passenger air bag detection. I took my truck into the dealership & was notified there was nothing they could do because Nissan had not given them the necessary parts to fix the defects. So what happens if I have an accident as a result of this defect?
