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.

After a panic stop which activates the ABS system, this vehicle is unresponsive to throttle input for an excessive period of time (10 seconds or more). This has been demonstrated to the dealer and a new, similar vehicle showed the same performance. The dealer indicates it must be inherent with the vehicle, no fix is available from Nissan. This unresponsiveness after a panic stop is un-safe.

I was on a highway in heavy traffic, travelling 5 mph in a brand new Nissan car that I had recently leased. I had to stop and go several times. During this time my brakes failed sporadically. Each time it stopped only after hitting the truck ahead. I was towed to the nearest Nissan dealer. It then took me two weeks to get to speak to an appropriate person. He was part of Nissan's arbitration department. He said he himself would feel unsafe to drive this car, and that his wife would definitely not let him drive it, even if Nissan failed to duplicate the problem. Therefore, if Nissan can?T duplicate the problem, I need to keep the same car. I have read reports on the NHTSA website that even after cars with similar brake problems were repaired, the same problem recurred. At the time of the incident the mileage on the car was 3200.
