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.

Sentra 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 70,000 miles
The contact owns a 2005 Nissan Sentra. When fueling the gas tank, excess fuel spills onto the ground. Fuel leakage, in the presence of an ignition source, could result in a fire. The dealer was contacted in reference to recall# 05V269000 ((fuel system, gasoline:storage). Since his vehicle identification number was excluded from the recall he would have to pay $400 for a remedy. No repairs were made. The failure mileage was 70,000. The current mileage was unavailable.
