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

Feb 152007

Sentra 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 22,000 miles


The contact owns a 2005 Nissan Sentra. The contact noticed that the fuel pump would suck the fuel back into the tank instead of maintaining pressure in the fuel injectors. He would attempt to start the vehicle, but was unsuccessful because gasoline was in the tank. The issue occurred many times in the previous year. The contact had to replace two set of spark plugs. The dealer charged $100 for a diagnosis and then informed him of the fuel pump issue. The manufacturer did not assist. The contact stated that his extended warranty did not cover the failure and he would have to pay out of pocket for a completely new fuel pump. The current mileage was approximately 43,000 and failure mileage was 21,582. Updated 12/22/08. Updated 12/23/08.
