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

Quest SE

On a 30,000 mini van, tires needed replacing at 35,800 miles due to safety and tire shake. Even worse was only 1 tire is available for 2004 Nissan Quest and I checked a 2006 Quest and it has the same tire. The size is odd, a 225/65/16 which only Goodyear makes and only makes 1 model, the Eagle LS. The Eagle LS comes with no tread warranty and is rated at 30,000 miles although that is hard to find out. Nissan does not indicate this anywhere. The tire is really a sports vehicle style tire but the size apparently is only for the Nissan Quest. Can't find any other tire. Cost of the tire is unbelievable costing under $800 for all tires to be replaced and expect to do this every year and half according to my driving at about 20,000 miles a year under good conditions.

I have no option but to buy this size tire since no other size is recommended and in fact could be unsafe not to mention effect the speedometer. No option to buy the Goodyear brand. No option on style tire, just the Eagle LS. No option but to pay a premium price, for those who have the tire cost almost $800 with installation and taxes... Concern over who can install the tire as it has pressure sensors which can be damaged by an installer who is unaware of how to handle them.

Nisssan and Goodyear apparently have a monopoly on this tire, making double and triple of what you would normally expect to pay for a tire, especially a tire with such low mileage.

I can't tell that there is anything of special quality in this tire. The ride is not as good as I would expect.

I would recommend not purchasing a Nissan Quest due to cost of ownership high due to tire replacement monopoly. You might also consider the brakes as another problem...
