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.

2004 Nissan Sentra Owner Comments

Sentra 1.8L

I had a new fuel pump put into my 2004 nissan sentra 1.8 thinking this would solve the problems that this car is having.The only thing it did was get my car to start right away. Lets see do I want my car to start right away or do I wanna put myself in harms way with my kids in the car and let me car die while doing 75 on the highway?Hmmmm ...this is B.S

Before the fuel pump was put in the car was not turning on on the first try it also started heating up about a year ago and stopped.The car would die without warning without driving it.Had a new fuel pump put in and all that did was make the car start up right away.Had the crankshaft sensor put in that did nothing.Now my car has been sitting at our mechanic for about a week now with a blown head gasket.It needs a head gasket and a valve still dies while driving without warning.
