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.

Had to replace complete transmission. Lack of power and no reverse. Based on research a huge percentage of Nissan Quest, Nissan maxima and Nissan Altima from 2005 have this issue, and no recalls was issued nor Nissan dealer accountable for problem. Problem happened on the freeway, had lack of power, move to the side of the road and stop, put car in park, tried reverse gear, and was not working, tried drive gear and it moves forward but with very little power. Took it to the mechanic and and after several inspection he told me I needed to change the transmission.

The 2005 Nissan Quest SE has severe problems with motor mounts and their faulty design which resulted in a vehicle crash. My wife went to the dollar store, this being about two months after all the motor mounts were replaced, she got in and started to back out as she pressed the accelerator the engine revved up to 3000 RPM and then jammed the transmission into gear causing it to jerk the wheel violently and bark the tires the engine is so quiet you cannot hear if this is happening it propelled the vehicle right into another vehicle parked all the way in the parking spaces behind her costing us 2000 dollars to pay for vehicle damage there could had been pedestrians around which could have been hit and killed there is over 30000 complaints online of this same problem. I urge you to please make Nissan fix the defective motor mounts problems there is plenty of evidence on this our motor mounts now have to be replaced every 4 months because they keep going bad costing 1200 dollars each time they are a bad design and is urgent to be fixed because they help control transmission engagement thank you.

My wife notified me that while driving to work, our van a 2005 Nissan Quest 3.5 S, without warning completely shut off leaving her stranded in the middle of traffic. After a few minutes and several attempts she was able to restart the vehicle and return home. On another occasion while I was driving the vehicle around town I experienced a similar incident when again without warning the van shut completely off as I was approaching an intersection on a red light. After bringing the vehicle to a complete stop without braking assist or power steering it restarted after a few attempts. During both incidences the vehicle had a full tank of fuel and showed no indications of trouble.
