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.

2001 Nissan Sentra Owner Comments

problem #1

Apr 222007

(reported on)

Sentra GXE 1.8L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 7,456 miles


After only 12,000 km, on the car, the car was experiencing uneven shuddering braking. I took off the wheels and checked the rotors to find that the inside pads where not even touching the disks. The inside of the disk was completely rusted out. I had to replace the disks and pads as well as free up the calipers and re-grease them.

I have since talked to mechanics about this problem and they say that the car was never properly PDI'ed. If the dealer actually did something for the PDI charge, this problem may have been avoided.
