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.

2002 Nissan Sentra Owner Comments

Sentra 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 46,800 miles


Vehicle(2002 Nissan Sentra gxe) becomes rough and the engine stop intermittently while driving the vehicle. Taken the vehicle to the dealership, the ECM (engine control module) was detected to be bad. It was replaced at a cost of $95. The vehicle odometer was showing about 47,000 miles. Talked to the Nissan manufacturer and I was told that all recalls were already done on this vehicle on March 24th, 2004 at stevens creek Nissan. This included rectifying the defects related to ECM. However the ECM became bad again. There may be defects which have not come to the review. Please help to identify the defects and make the vehicle safe on the road.
