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.

For 2 months now my battery won't hold a charge. I can drive it one day and the next absolutely nothing but a little click. Several times a week we have to charge the battery which is new. The Nissan dealer in glen burnie md is worthless. Took my car in and explained the issue twice to 2 different people who both told me your the first appointment of the day. 3 that afternoon the y haven't even looked at the car yet (apparently when they say first appointment of the day and 8 hours later the excuse they give for not touching your vehicle is "well there may have been cars left over from yesterday ". Now it's 24 hours later and they don't know what's wrong with the car still. Also, my odometer and gas gauge only shows part of the numbers now and the response is"oh that happens to alot of nissans" when I trade my van in it won't be for another Nissan. They don't know what they are doing and are full of bullshit excuses they expect you to believe. Morons in customer service.

The 2004 Quest is a real lemon it seems. Recently my car died and needed a jump. The battery was old, almost 5 yrs. So we replaced it. But the same prob occurred. Took it to Nissan and they said there was some corrosion on it. Which there was. So they said all I needed was a $35 battery maintenance. OK fine, no biggie right? WRONG. My wife drove it away and when she turned it off it would not start up again. Same problem as before.

This is AFTER Nissan techs assured me that the Starter and Alternator were fine. So than said the battery we put in may not have been the right one for the vehicle. Bull, my brother in law is a mechanic and bought the battery for us. So get this, we sent it back to Nissan and asked for a loaner, they said yes no prob but would have to wait til the next day cause it was too late that evening to process the forms. Whatever. But low and behold the next day when we asked for the loaner the first obnoxious asshole we spoke to practically laughed in my wifes face. So we waited til the other guy came in who helped us the night before, (Who BTW came to where my wife got stuck and gave her a jump, OK 1 point for courtesy), So now this guy tells us we can't get a loaner cause the problem may not be covered under the warranty. And we'll have to lay out the cost ourselves until the tech determines if the prob is under warranty, in which case we'll be reimbursed.

This all started early last week around 10/28/08 and here it is the following Monday 11/3 and our Quest is back at Nissan.

Lets just say when push comes to shove Nissan will not back you up. They just lost a customer. Cause we WERE gonna purchase another Nissan vehicle when we turned in this lease but now? FORGET IT.
