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.

problem #2

Dec 012012

Sentra 1.8L V4

  • Automatic transmission
  • 149,000 miles


Bought the car used, it's really been a great little car, zippy, mileage not too bad, no real serious problems. A/C doesn't have a whole lotta oomph when it's really hot outside, heater very good. Comfortable driving, but when getting out (I'm 5'7") it's a twisty turny type thing, like trying to get up out of a tub...sits low to the ground, is absolute crap in more than a few inches of snow. Great on decent roads, highways, around town and did a trip to TX and back to TN without a hitch. Has been very reliable. The double cranking is aggravating, but have learned to live with it. All in all it's been a sound little car, durable, hasn't been expensive on upkeep.
