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.

We got the car in Dec 2003. Between Feb 2004 and April 2004 the car had 5-6 hard stars; in most cases it took less than 5 minutes to have it started and only one time more than an hour. I left it there and came back after 5 h.---it started right away. All this happened in Houston TX.. Dec 20 2004 in the middle of nowhere in Pennsylvania, second day of our Holiday Vacation. I’ve tried to start it for more than 3 hours, until the battery went dead.

Finally the dealer picked it up. After about 10 day the Nissan “trained” auto mechanic comes up with the diagnostic: “No problem with the car, you just flooded! It is not going to be covered by the warranty!” You don’t have to be a mechanic to know that an injection engine can’t be flooded unless the car has a PROBLEM (no sparking, injectors licks, off timing…).

Same car, the radio/CD sometimes just won’t play; the power is on but no sound. Usually after 5- 10 minutes will go on or sometimes you have to stop and restart it. Also the rear AC fan came loose and had to be replaced. (At least this is a problem that could and had been fixed!)

Nice car but I have to file for lemon. I pay for a new car and I expect it to start when I need it not when it “feels like”

Their CS doesn’t care to much about our complains. After 4 days of calling in, somebody finally called me back. It took her awhile to understand the problem and finely she informed me that is nothing they can do! I told her I am going to file for LEMON and I was advised to do so!
