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

  • 127,000 miles


The contact owns a 2004 Nissan Sentra. While driving approximately 45 mph, the engine stalled without warning. After multiple attempts, the vehicle restarted and the "check engine" warning indicator illuminated. An independent diagnostic test displayed a code of P0335, which indicated that the crankshaft positioning sensor potentially caused the failure. The manufacturer stated that the VIN was not included in NHTSA campaign number: 07V527000 (engine and engine cooling). The approximate failure mileage was 127,000.
