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

problem #2

  • 71,638 miles


The contact owns a 2004 Nissan Sentra. The contact stated that the catalytic converter failed and was replaced by the dealer. Ever since the converter was changed, the vehicle has been draining the oil and sucking debris into the motor. The vehicle was not included in a recall. The contact wants Nissan to pay for the repairs since this is a safety issue and there is already a recall for the identical failure. The current mileage was 72,000 and failure mileage was 71,638.

Just purchased my 2004 Nissan Sentra two weeks ago. The service engine light came on after I came home and remained on. The saleman told me he didn't think my car would pass an emission test. This leads me to believe he sold the car knowing there was a problem. I am taking into the Nissan dealer in olympia but I told him I am not paying anything period. The car has only 22,000 miles and is under warranty but I feel he deceived me. The sales person is jay rolfs from associate fleets in seattle, wa.
