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.

2005 Nissan Quest Owner Comments

Fuel gauge is not displaying as well as the odometer and temperature- previous owners have the same issue and current litigation had been placed for same model and same or different years.. air bag sensor on front seat passenger is not active but a small adult is on the seat. Similar recalls had been happening on this model but not expanding through many VIN#S brake- similar recalls had been happening on this model but not expanding through many VIN#S. an accident doesn't need to happen in order to recall those car that are suffering the same diagnosis on current/approved recalls. An action must be taken.

The contact owns a 2005 Nissan Quest. The contact stated that after starting the vehicle, there was a thumping noise heard when applying the brakes with the illumination of the brake, ABS, and traction control warning lights. The vehicle was taken the dealer for diagnosis where it was stated that the ABS module needed to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired and the manufacturer was notified. The VIN was not available. The approximate failure mileage was 54,000.

2005 Nissan Quest had less than a 1/4 tank of gas and light was on. Was at dealership getting brakes replaced for the 4th time. Took van to gas station next door and put 16 gallons ($62) of gas in. Restarted car and gas tank still read less than 1/4 and empty light/warnings still flashing. Drove back to dealership, they tried to reset and ended up disconnecting the battery. Once the battery was reconnected the fuel gauge showed full. This was Oct 2011 with 46,000mi. It is now April and car has 55,000mi. I was unable to disconnect battery so had to continue driving with warning light. After about 20mi, gauge now reads less than 1/2 tank but tank should be reading full. There was already a recall for a number of Nissan vehicles for gas gauge issues. Clearly a Nissan issue that needs to be recalled and fixed across the board. Having to disconnect the battery to get the fuel gauge to read is not a good long term solution. Also this van goes through brakes at an astounding rate. We have had to replace the brake pads front and back 4 times in the last 30,000 mi and now need new rotors. Also have replaced tires 3 times. Most recent mechanic said van was poorly designed with brakes and tires meant for a much lighter vehicle.
