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

Dec 112002

Sentra GXE 1.8L

  • Manual transmission
  • 38,000 miles


This problem has happened a few times. The first time was on the front passenger window. The window was stuck down and to make it worse it rained that same day. Nissan fixed it but whoever fixed it left some parts out and it broke again. The dealer (then Bill Newton Nissan now Conyers Nissan) tried to blame ME for not putting the parts back together correctly because he just KNEW none of his guys wouldn't do such bad work. I had to explain to him that my car was under warranty and there was no way I'd try to fix it myself or pay someone else to do it when I could bring it in for "free". After some arguing I got them to fix it again because when I brought it back that second time, my warranty had expired by a few miles.

Today, my driver side window motor seems to be failing. The window will go down but it struggles like hell to come back up (I have to give it some assistance by pulling up on the window). Now I don't even let the window down anymore for fear that it won't come back up.

Other complaints with this car:

-- CD Player doesn't work (solution might be to clean it, will try that later).

-- Dipstick ring broke off due to weak plastic construction.

-- Radio back light doesn't work so can't see the clock or radio information at night.
