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.

My 2002 Nissan Sentra gxe oil dip stick broke when I was pulling it out to check my oil level. I did a search online and a lot of people have the same problem

I changed my oil on my 2001 Nissan Sentra and when I removed the oil dipstick, the plastic handle broke off leaving a piece of the plastic handle and the dipstick lodged inside of the metal tube. I have searched other sites and have found that many other motorists have had the same problem. It costs a lot of money for a repair shop to remove the dipstick. I believe that there is a defect in using a plastic handle on an oil dipstick.

I took my car to have the oil changed and in the process the oil dipstick handle broke. When I notified Nissan, I was informed by a service technician that this is a common occurrence with Nissan. We tried to retrieve the oil dipstick but to no avail. So I called Nissan and spoke with a service technician and he informed me, the oil pan would have to be dropped and "only" a Nissan service technician could perform the job. The Nissan service technician informed me that it would cost $200 to repair. The service technician also informed me during our conservation, T they were dropping the oil pan on several Nissan's with the same problem, a broken oil dipstick. I think it is unfair for the consumer to pay $200 to have an oil dipstick removed when the material or part is substandard initially. Basically what Nissan is saying is, when I get an oil change there is a "great" possibility the oil dipstick will break.
