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 #1

Jul 182016

Quest SL 3.5L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 63,389 miles


NO AIR BAG DEPLOYMENT DURING A FRONT COLLISION - A SAFETY CONCERN!! After a front collision when the front air bag should have deployed (AND DID NOT), THE LIGHT SENSOR REMAINS ON indicating that the bag was deployed. I called NISSAN headquarters, and they told me that there was a couple of re-calls for my '04 Quest including a "voluntary recall" on the air bag sensor. Followed their instructions, and took it to my local Nissan Dealer (Fort Myers), and they told me that the problem was not the sensor included in the recall instead, they charged me $90 to conduct a diagnosis to find out why the air bag deployment was still on AFTER NO DEPLOYMENT, and said that they would charge me $1,400 to replace the sensor that SHORTED OUT! during the collision FAILING TO DEPLOY THE BAG!!! This is outrageous, the vehicle clearly has manufacturer's SAFETY ISSUES. My '04 Quest van has only 63,000 miles and THE SAFETY FEATURES DON'T WORK??? I sure hope NISSAN can respond to this issue SOONEST possible before a fatality is involved DUE TO THE AIR BAGS/SENSORS FAULTY DESIGNS. HUMAN LIFE AND SAFETY IS AT STAKE HERE!!
