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.

My 2004 Nissan Sentra kept shutting off and had little or no power and was running rough and the battery kept dying, well I found out that the battery cable was worn and making little connection. It cost me $2.00 for a cable and my brother changed it for me and that cost me a $15.00 lunch.. Good Luck

Sentra S 1.8L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 67,000 miles

My car will not accelerate past 45MPH with the pedal all the way to the ground! The brake pedal is REALLY hard to step on and the car makes a horrible clunking and groaning sound when I step on the brake or gas. I have had my brakes repaired, rotors resurfaced, and numerous other tasks completed to try and repair the car. No one can seem to figure out what the problem is. I have hear ECM, Calipers, Flood Damage. Any thoughts?
