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.

2001 Nissan Quest Owner Comments

problem #2

Jul 162014


  • 145,000 miles


The main engine support frame member to which the bottom-forward motor mount is attached rusted completely free where it attaches at the area under the radiator. This caused the entire engine to drop. The vehicle is no longer drivable. Repair requires extensive structural work. There was no indication of a problem in advance of the incident. The vehicle had been service regularly. The compromised area was not previously visible as it is concealed by a splash guard. This is an extremely unsafe condition, especially when traveling at speed, due to potential for loss of control resulting from compromised steering, braking and other systems. Nissan has not issued any bulletins, recalls for inspection, or other communication regarding this issue. A brief internet search produces numerous complaints about the same problem. Many of the complaints state Nissan has been unresponsive to complaints.

  • Automatic transmission
  • 15,000 miles
Involved in a low impact auto accident (probably less than 40 mph because air bags weren't even deployed, no injuries whatsoever sustained by myself and other driver, miniscule damage to other vehicle) in 11/01. Immediately car was on fire which resulted in total loss of vehicle. Alleging that the Nissan Quest is inherently unsafe due to poor frontal design of vehicle (see results of insurance institute for highway safety crash test results) - this is result of minivan catching fire so easily and rapidly. Attempts to resolve matter with Nissan ignored (asked for replacement of items lost in car/amt not covered by gap insurance, approx. $5000 total). Now will seek recovery of funds via lawsuit.
