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.

When a turn was made, the front passenger side wheel impacted the curb. Which resulted in the pulley bolt breaking.

When I reported that the chirping/squeaking sound had returned (around the engine belts) to the service dept. At sheehy Nissan in annapolis, the service person (mary) said that, if we can't recreate the sound the mechanic can't fix it. I proceeded to tell her to look at her data base for Dec 2001, and she would see that it has been only a month and the sound is back, but intermitent, and the service manager-zeek knew what it was after they had changed out the (2) defective senor recall. She got impatient and repeated the same again to me, about recreating the sound. Not being very educated or patient with customers, but rude, only served to upset me further about this vehicle and the complacent attitude I was up against. I thought, I would hate to think what would happen to me if one of those belts gave out. Its my life, not mary'. I also told her when the belts make that sound, the engine hestitates. This made no difference to this "service expert."
