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.

Sentra GXE 1.8L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 59,000 miles

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

2003 Nissan Sentra bought new 1.8 engine with automatic transmission. GXE automatic transmission slipping in reverse. 59,000 original miles. mostly stop and go driving. went to 1 transmission place about 1500 for a rebuilt transmission. I don't think I will have the transmission replaced. IM looking for a replacement car now. so now im renting a car. this transmission is a 4 speed automatic . ( not a cvt )- there is a recall on the cvt call Nissan if you have one. We called Nissan and there is no recall on the 2003 Nissan Sentra transmission the one I have. notepad77@hotmail.com . moving ahead. hope to find a car soon. this website is excellent. GXE auto windows, power door locks, airconditioning. ( when I replace the antifreeze which is green ( with green ) antifreeze you need to bleed the air out of the system and when it was done the air conditioner worked much cooler) did the front breaks at 30,000 miles a break clip was missing from the factory and have the original brake pads see video on youtube.com Nissan Sentra brake pad video. changed the oil every 2000 miles on the car it only takes 2.75 qts. with filter. starts everytime in the coldest temp. use a high quality hi cold cranking amp battery . always have antifreeze at -40 degree ( green).
