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

Sentra XE 1.8L

  • Manual transmission

The car started jerking on the highway, almost to stall. I was able to get home. it was towed to the mechanic where I have to repair ECU after 2 weeks of diagnostic --it cost me $1000

It was not easy to diagnostic because the car gives you a lot of engine errors and the mechanic has to replace couple of sensors (crank shaft sensor and cam shaft sensor) until he took the decision to repair the ECU. I found on the internet about this problem to be very common on Nissan Sentra.
