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.

The steering wheel made noise. On one occasion the vehicle began to vibrate and shake while making a turn which resulted in the vehicle hitting a curb. The vehicle has been taken to the dealer on several occasion but they have not been able to locate or correct the problem.

Sentra 4-cyl

Multiple issues with 2001 Sentra. Steering has become progressively tighter. Dealer claims no problem. Crunching noise from shocks/struts when driving over speed bumps or when exiting driveway onto road (uneven pavement). Worse when cold. Dealer claims no problem. Brakes make scraping noise when applied. Worse when cold. Car has become very uncomfortable to drive - tight/difficult steering and noisy suspension. Drives like a 10 year old Chevy instead of a 2 year old Japanese car. I should have kept my Honda!!!
