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.

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

The car suddenly died about 7/27/2015. It just shut off while my husband was driving and luckily he was at a light and no one rear ended him. Then on about 8/27/2015 the vehicle died while I was operating it. It restarted after a few minutes and drove about a quarter mile and died again then I managed to pull into a driveway but was blocking people from enterering or exiting. My husband came and pushed me out of the way. Then while I was calling for a tow, the car started again and I was close to home so I hoped I could make it. My husband was in his vehicle and followed me and the vehicle died again in about another 100 feet but I pulled into a business center. My son and husband pushed my car for a little momentum as my tail end was in the street and I parked the car there for a few hours and when it seemed to cool down a bit it started. Then today, I was close to making it home and the car died on the same busy street and would not restart. A good samaritan came along and pushed me to the same business center. Again, we went back later and the vehicle started. This is dangerous because especially yesterday, many people nearly rear ended me because you could not see me because I was just over a hill. I see Nissan has recalled some vehicles for this issue but mine is not one of them and it should be. This is very dangerous and someone could be seriously injured or killed if it were to die at a bad time or if someone who is trying to help gets hurt. Please help.

Driving on the highway. Engine check light came on. Car would only do 10 miles per hour on a superhighway - very very dangerous. I was able to drive 2 miles this way on very side of road to side road where I parked. When I started it up again it drove normally. This check engine light is very dangerous. I see there is a lot of trouble with Nissan Sentra. Alot of trouble. It is time for this govt Agency to start working for consumers and stop being front men for car companies. The car only has 57000 miles on it. I was scared out of my mind and very frightened. I am 73 years old.
