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.

2006 Nissan Sentra Owner Comments

problem #2

Sentra 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission

If the heat/air selector is positioned to defrost the air conditioner compressor runs until the engine is turned off. This makes it more difficult to make the car comfortable and wastes gas. When I took it to the dealer, he affirmed that the car was designed to work this way.

Above about 35 or 42F the air cond runs if the air selector is positioned on any selection that includes defrost, and the only way to turn this off is to turn the air selector to a position that does not contain defrost, pull over, stop the vehicle, turn the ignition off, then restart the vehicle. I am not mistaken, I am positive of this. This is not green, the air is often running all day wasting gas mileage putting more pollution in the air. Heater must be turned on to compensate for the cooling effect of the air conditioner.
