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.

We travel to orlando which is a 3 hour drive we go 4 times a year and the Rogue fails on us at least 4 times every trip. After an hour on the highway are vehicle struggles to accelerate we go from 80 to 60 and car feels like it struggles with the pedel to the floor. Also when the ac is on and we are at a light the car trys to stall. And the airbags are defective the airbag on the passenger side doesn't recognize anyone in the seat and the one on the dash just blinks. I'm afraid they won't deploy if in an accident. First and last nissian will ever buy. The loss of acceleration I think is a death waiting to happen big hazard. We have this vehicle for three years and same problem from day one

Air bag warning light flashes continuously on dash. Air bag system indicator says that air bags are off. Have been told by Nissan that sensor is bad and requires more than $2000 for repair/replacement.

Passenger air bag sensor not working properly¿will randomly stop working with 175lb passenger but yet works with 30lb bag placed on seat. Vehicle is in motion and can happen on city streets as well as highway speeds. This issue is still occurring. The car was purchased used with 30,000 miles in January 2014. Most of the time I do not have a passenger but I'd like them to be protected when I do.

Both lights on the dash came on showing the air bag would not work if the Rogue was involved in a accident. I took the Rogue to the local dealership and was advised that the censor's in the passenger seat were not working and would not deploy. The dealership cleared the codes and retested and the lights on the dash went out. Three days later they came back on. I went back to the dealership and was advise that the censor's would need to be replaced. I then took the Rogue to another dealership. I advised them of what was done at the previous dealership and was told that was the proper procedure. I was also ask who rode the front passenger seat and what their weight was. I advised them my wife rode in the passenger seat 99% of the time and 126 lbs. Was her weight. I was then told her weight could be part of the problem" I needed to get the system fixed because it was a safety problem??"

My car was parked in the driveway. I had arrived home at 3:30pm on a Saturday. The next morning at 10:00am, I went to my car to find that something had exploded inside. There had been a significant amount of fire damage to the front passenger's side, including the glove compartment, the dash, and the location of the airbag. My best guess as to what happened is that the airbag exploded (not deployed), causing a fire, which damaged the electrical system, and caused a lot of cosmetic damage. There is no evidence of the airbag, other than some springs, it does not look like it simply deployed. The insurance company has deemed it a total loss. I feel that this is something that Nissan should cover, not me or my insurance company. But I cannot determine what actually happened or how to pursue legal action against them. Thankfully, no one was injured. I have no idea why the dire was self-contained, and the entire car didn't explode.

Airbag system goes off (indicator light come on) while having a passenger weight about 115lb in the front passenger seat. Called Nissan and was told the weight limit for sensor to come on is around 110lb. Service person suggested shifting the position or posture of the passenger would resolve. It is bad idea to have your love ones who is round 110 lb not to be able to sit in the front. Nissan should have brought this up before we bought the car.
