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.

Transmission problem w/ 2001 Nissan Sentra gxe, Nissan refuses to fix the problem. They could not find the problem when the vehicle was brought to them before my warranty was up. Now my warranty is up and they found the problem after six trips to Nissan with the same problem. I need a knew transmission and they refuse to pay for it. What can I do?

I have had numerous problems with my 2001 Nissan Sentra. I have posted my prior complaints on this site. Most recently I attempted to back out of a parking spot. A simple enough task one would think. Not with this lemon. The car started, the engine was running, the shift moved in the R position, however the car was not budging. Turns out the transmission had went on my 2001 car. Unacceptable in my opinion. Just to update everyone, this is in addition to the broken ignition wire, inoperative horn and broken fuel pump that I have already experienced with this lemon. Buyer beware!
