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.

The passenger's side automatic window started making a grinding noise, slowed and eventually stopped working. I had to pull the window up while working the button. The same day the driver's side window was making the same sounds and also failed. I took off the inside of the passenger's door, I noticed that a plastic piece holding a metal cable on the window regulator had broken in half. When I checked the driver's door I saw it had broken in the same spot. I was lucky enough to catch the problem before both motors burn out. The failure caused the cable to tangle around the regulator's wheel assembly, it kinked and frayed the cable. I went to the dealership and purchased both assemblies at a very steep price. This is obviously a design flaw and should also be considered a safety recall for the manufacturer.

The driver's side automatic window slowed and eventually stopped working. Because of the failure we had to leave our vehicle in a public parking lot at one point with the window fully open. This is a safety issue and invites theft among other things. One month later the passenger's side window was making the same sounds and also failed. When I took off the inside of both doors, the exact same failure had occurred. A plastic piece holding a metal cable on the window regulator had broken in half in the same spot on both windows. The driver's side failure was so bad that it also caused the window's motor to burn out. I caught the passenger's side window's symptoms in time before it had a chance to destroy that motor. The failure on that side caused the cable to tangle around the regulator's wheel assembly. This is obviously a design flaw and should also be considered a safety recall for the manufacturer.

Caller said both front axles broke. Car made a noise and when she took it in to have it looked at the dealer said that the right one rusted and the left one broke. Both windows will not go up or down. The dealer repaired the windows 4 times. A mechanic was fixing the axles. The manufacturer has been contacted, and caller is waiting for them to call her back. The date was when the windows started going bad. The axle problem started on July 6, 2005.

I bought the vehicle in new March 2001. That November the drivers window stopped moving. I had to have my drivers window regulator replaced, it was done under warranty. A little more than a year later the passenger regulator needed replaced. In the fall of 2003 the drivers window stopped moving again and two months later the passenger window stopped. I have searched junk yards for one but they don't have that new of a vehicle. And when I do find one the regulator is already broke. I have since then replaced the passanger window but I still can't find a drivers side. The warranty on the replacement parts was only one year. My vehicle now is 3 years old and out of its warranty. I sent Nissan a certified letter and they declined to help. I can buy a new part but afraid it will go bad too.
