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.

No incident yet. I was informed by Nissan service that the front engine and suspension support frame has a hole rusted through and needs replacement. Apparently this is a known design issue. There is no reason a hole should form in a frame support member if safely designed. It is difficult for an average vehicle owner or non-Nissan garage to notice this problem so many vehicles may have it. The most obvious time the frame would break would be during a high speed bump. It would be hazardous if the frame broke during travel resulting in possible loss of control of vehicle.

My mechanic noticed severe rotting of right side of subframe which holds the engine and other important car parts in place. I was made aware that if the subframe broke, the engine would fall out and the right wheel would slide to the side, causing complete loss of control of the car. Very dangerous, possibly fatal. I was lucky it was found before such an accident occurred. I have found two other similar complaints about the subframe rotting out. There is a drip from the air conditioner that is designed to fall right on this important structure and pools there. My fear is that others are unaware of the structural issue and could not be so lucky to find it in time before fatality occurs. I believe the car needs to be recalled to fix the improper drainage of the air conditioning.
