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.

Rogue 4-cyl

  • 19,256 miles


I pulled out onto route 125 in plaistow, nh at a set of traffic lights and there were cars coming up quick behind me when all of a sudden I went over the drainage in the road I lost all power and started slowing down I had no control of my gas pedal, my car wouldn't go it was just slowing down fast. It was scary I almost got rear ended. When this happened I noticed my traction control light lit up blinking. I have read many horror stories about similar situations and notified the dealership and they cant replicate it so wont do anything about it. I could have been hit hard bc I was just going along when all of a sudden my car pretty much almost stopped in the middle of the road, no brakes, nothing. The dealer has offered to take my car for a period of time to drive and give me one in the meantime to try and see if they can make it happen again. This is something that is serious, especially when in fast moving traffic and this was to happen to me or anyone with this car again.

Rogue 4-cyl

  • 4,300 miles
A day before the incident, the malfunction light came on in my car on the dashboard. The next day, about one mile from home, I stopped on a hill at a traffic light with several cars ahead of me. When the light turned green, I moved my foot from the brake pedal to the accelerator and the car started rolling backward. It would not go into drive even though the gear was in drive. After trying once more unsuccessfully to get the car to move forward, I put the car in park, put on my flashers and turned the engine off. I restarted the car, and put the gear in drive and it went forward but somewhat haltingly. I slowly proceeded to the Nissan dealer about 2 miles away. Each time I stopped at a traffic light, the engine sounded funny. Today, the Nissan dealer informed me that there is an electrical problem in the transmission that they can't repair. Nissan usa is replacing the transmission under warranty. I find this outrageous that a newly purchased car of 5 months with less than 5, 000 miles has a defective transmission.
