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.

Rogue 4-cyl

  • 7,300 miles
Vehicle was brought in for an oil change at 73,000 miles. No prior mvas or maintenance issues. After leaving the dealership the front dashboard airbag light was blinking intermittently. Immediately taken back to dealership and the test indicated a "front crash zone sensor failure" repair would be approximately $1800. Was told that airbag may not deploy in a collision or could deploy at random. Either dealer damaged the vehicle during oil change, or front crash sensor on model vehicle is faulty; causing high risk of injury or death in the event of a collision or malfunction.

Rogue 4-cyl

  • 50,000 miles
The passenger airbag light turns on and the airbag shuts off while a person is sitting in the seat and the car is in motion. This happened at 50,000 miles and Nissan replaced the seat. It happened again at 79,000 and Nissan will not fix the problem. The dealership turned off the blinking light but again when a person sat in the seat the airbag turned off again. I was told that they are not sure if the airbag is working. I have an extended warranty (100,000 miles) but they still refuse to fix the problem. This is the same problem that Nissan has recalled older and newer models of the Rogue. I did research on-line and this is an ongoing problem with Rogues and other Nissan vehicle. This should be a recall item for the safety of passengers because for no reason the airbag malfunctions during use and where it is safe to pull over. I called the Nissan complaint department and they told me I should be happy because other people have this problem and it occurs more frequently. I'm not happy or impressed, still no recall. Please help there are citizens that have this problem and Nissan is ignoring us.
