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.

I was in an accident, and air bag failed to deploy. Brakes may have not been repaired to full functional capacity from the dealership when serviced which resulted in not braking in time and loss of control of vehicle. I looked up the vehicle on a Nissan recall website and found out that it's one of the ones on the recall list.

August 13, 2014 I took my Nissan to dealer because of air bag light on passenger side flashing. It started while driving. I was informed it was caused by right front seat belt pretensioner failure, they replaced the right front seat belt assy. Under a warranty. October 20, 2014 took back to dealer due to air bag light again flashing. Informed it was cost $975 to install a new censor. I declined work because of price. To date, 5/2/16, the light continues to flash. I also have a flashing light on my dash for a tire censor. I was told it would cost $135 to find which tire or if it was a main censor that was causing this. I declined to have it diagnosed due to the cost -$135 to find it then another cost to fix it. This has been flashing for almost two years. Car was in motion when the flashing started.

When purchasing my used vehicle from el monte Toyota, notice sensor for tire on, was told be fixed, months later learn rim missing sensor. Light in car also don't work. Driving car immediately was stalling out shutting off when idol. Took car back week later since within 30 day warranty spoke to customer service on recorded call and she didn't thoroughly document conversation. Upon waiting four hours next week, tech drove the car never do a diagnostic. After warranty expired car regularly shut off triggering transmission codes. Out of pocket I paid for transmission flush twice, throttle body replacement, brakes, learning there was transmission recall 2010. Falling behind in payments due.to excessive repair expenses took car to fix at Nissan to get a list more of defects I couldn't afford. I filed a claim with Toyota and was denied by the manager. Had they ran the diagnostic when I brought it in all be avoided. However was advised dealership's are aware of recalls and sold me the car anyway? and refused to fix when I returned and dismissed a claim die to their negligence. Never buy a car from that dealership and will let anyone looking know of my costly experience. Expect that from a car lot not a reputation like Toyota.

Since the day I purchased the vehicle I have had ongoing issues with the tire pressure sensors. The light comes on and will not go off. The first time it happened the dealership replaced the sensor. A week later it came on again, the sensor was replaced again. As I drove off the lot it came back on. The entire rim and sensor was replaced. It has continued to come on repeatedly over the years. In addition I have had to replace all 4 tires yearly as they wear unevenly, regardless of the brand. The back tires wear in a wave pattern, the front wear around the edges even after new tires are balances and aligned. I can not drive at highway speeds with the windows open because of the noise the tires make. It makes me sick to my stomach. With all the other sensor light, tire and suspension issues others are having I am surprised there hasn't been action taken. Tires are not an accessory part, it is a necessary part and when they fail people get hurt.

The contact owns a 2008 Nissan Sentra. While parked, the contact noticed that the tire pressure warning light illuminated on the instrument panel. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for diagnostic testing. The technician was able to shut the tire pressure warning light off but the failure continued. Additionally, the air bag warning light illuminated on the instrument panel. The technician was unable to diagnose the failure. The vehicle was not repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 79,000.

Sentra

  • 30,000 miles
I have had many trips to the dealer after purchasing a 08 Sentra for problems with the tire pressure light as well as a popping in the wheels. I went to the dealer and they turned the pressure light off and said it was fine. It has happened more then 7 times. The tires were worn out by 30K miles I coudn't believe I had to replace them already. I aslo had the popping noise in the tires I took it to the dealer 4 times and they said nothing was wrong. I moved to a different state and took it for an oil change and they asked me if I had heard a noise in the tires. To my surprise I explained that I had heard it for a long time but the dealer told me it was nothing! the oil change place told me that the top strut mounts were seized causing the springs to bind. Now I would have had to pay over $1100 to replace them. I luckily have ext warranty that covers it for $50. I also have been told to replace brakes soon as well as the pressure valves in the tires. Is this all related to the dealers failure to diagnose the issue and now this has caused multiple issues at 30K miles"? or can this be a manufacturing issue with faulty equipment" please look in to this thanks
