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.

I have talked with Consumer Affairs @ Nissan and they are telling me they can't help me with the repairs. If you get on Nissan Rogue website, you will see that I'm not the only one with this problem. I can't open my driver side door from the outside. There are some comments that they can't open outside or inside on the driver side door. I just wanted someone to know about this problem before someone get killed because they couldn't get out of the vehicle. Thanks

2008 Nissan Rogue- both front door handles have completely failed and neither door can be opened from the outside. The only way to open the front doors is to climb in through the back doors and open from the inside.

Outside passenger door handle stopped working. Have been reading tons of complaints from other Rogue owners who are also having this exact same problem and Nissan is not honoring these defects and fixing them. This is ridiculous. At what point does a recall have to be issued when this problem is so incredibly prevalent?? we now have to open the door from the inside. Now we're just waiting for this to occur at some point on the driver's side as well!!!! apparently the linkages within the door handle mechanisms are faulty and "fall apart" is what I am gathering from everyone else's complaints. Please make this a recall. This is unacceptable.
