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 #5

Sentra 6-cyl

  • 79,400 miles


On 5-4-07 I noticed driver's side rear tire was flat. My boyfriend filled it with air and I thought nothing further of it. On 5-15-07 I picked him up from work and had a flat on the way out of the parking lot. We filled it with air, but could not make it home before it was totally flat again. Since it was after 11 pm and we were close to home I continued to drive. Once we arrived the tire had a chunk of tread missing, exposing metal barbs, on the outside of the tire. The boy friend changed it the next day so we could take it to discount tire. They informed us that 3 of the 4 tires were bad, the other 2 would end up having tread torn in the same wa, due to mechanical error in manufacturing of the tire. Although they were still under warranty per mileage, we still had to buy 4 new tires.

Sentra 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

Rear tire blew out on highway. Found a lump starting in second rear tire. Previously I had replaced the two front tires on 3/24/04 due to lumps or bubbles forming. One of these tires started wearing in an odd way and caused very pronounced vibration. These were the oem tires and at that time had 37,486 miles. Several days prior to the failure I had noticed vibration and skirmyness while driving. I visually inspected the tires and noticed they seemed out of round and odd shaped. I planned to replace themm in a few days. I did not think at the time a failure was imminent. I was wrong as the failure occured two days before I planned to replace them.
