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.

2004 Nissan Quest Owner Comments

problem #3

Nov 012006

Quest 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 20,000 miles


: the contact stated while driving 30 mph and when depressing the brake pedal, a scraping noise was heard. The vehicle was taken to the service dealer, who replaced the front and rear brake pads and rotors. The manufacturer expressed that the brakes were too small for the vehicle. Updated 2/12/2007 - the consumer had an 1993 Quest for 11 years. He explained that the 2004's brakes are softer than the 1993 model. The 2004's brakes are the same size as the 1993 Quest eventhough the weight has increased by almost 1000 lbs. The 2007's brake size has been increased.
