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 a Nissan rouge 2008 with 58K, me and wife were driving in the mountains, between denver and dillon, Colorado, when the car just suddenly stalled without any warning, car stop accelerating speed drop from 65 to 35 in 30 seconds we almost got hit by truck behind us it took me 10 minutes to resume driving and 30 minute late that happen again and we had to pull over onto the shoulder of the road. After spending about an hour on the shoulder, it would resume driving normally in. The dealer can't find problems.

Rogue 4-cyl

  • miles
I purchased a new 2008 Nissan rouge in March of 2008. My first road trip was in may of 2009. While driving on the highway I lost power (very dangerous). I took the overdrive off, put petal to floor, pulled over to side of the road nothing helped. I went to dealership for a noise I heard also on trip, motor mounts were loose but noise did not change. Ay that time I let them know about loss of power. Thinking it was just a fluke because around town I didn't have trouble with power. Went on another road trip and it did the same thing. Specialist supposedly flew in told me it was because the transmission fluid was a tiny bit to high. I told them I bought it off the showroom floor, after blinking of eyes they still claimed that was the reason. This year next road trip and it did the same thing at 4 different times...very scary!!! it seems to be getting worse. My son took it to airport to pck friends up, it happened a hour and a half from home. Then recurred in 5 lanes of city interstate traffic. He was so close to getting hit by the grace of god he didn't. I took it to the city 2 weeks ago and it did the same to me. It is so scary to be going along at 65 mph in 5 lanes of bumper traffic and loose power. Now I am making payments on a car that I could not even trust to drive my kid back to college this year. I have been to the dealership and I have been on the phone with headquarters of Nissan for over a month now and I am not getting no where. Looking on this website it looks like there are lots of issues with this many accidents or deaths need to happen before they stand behind there product. Would love any feed back on who I need to speak to next! thank you
