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. Notes: The 2005 Sentra earned its clunker status after numerous reports of blown head gaskets.

2005 Nissan Sentra Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 212004

Sentra 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 3,500 miles


Concern: Engine lost almost all of its power. The head was cracked, and the #4 cylinder was missing one of the 2 compression rings. Car was in shop for over 40 days. Correction: Waited 30 days for parts, entire engine, exhaust system, and intake were replaced. Car still runs horrible, and now the transmission does not like to shift when it is cold. The car over heated and possibly causing a fire
