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.

I have gone through 5 batteries in 6 years one blew up under my hood. I changed the positive battery cable assembly after that happened. It hasn't helped in keeping batteries for more than a year in this car. I have had the system checked everything comes back normal. I can charge anything in my car while the car is off and no key in the ignition. I would think that there would be something wrong with that. My doors lock/unlock inconstantly when using my fob to perform either function. I have to do it manually. The gas tube has pulled away and is unstable. My vehicle has shut off too many times to count unexpectedly while in motion and stationary. It happened in a supermarket parking lot, on an on ramp to get on a freeway, in the middle of a street. Aaa knows me well. This has been going on for years I have written about it before on another website, but this is the first time I have seen this website.

Approx. 5/26/15 after opening and trying to fuel my car at the gasoline station I noticed the fuel filler tube was loose. This station (usa gasoline) had recently installed new nozzles on the gas pumps. Due to the loose filler tube on my car, I had to drive to an arco station to complete the fueling of my car. On 6/10/15 during normal maintenance (oil change, check fluids, etc) I asked the shop to repair the loose fuel filler tube. They refused, saying I had to have the repair completed at an authorized Nissan dealer. I drove to the Nissan shop, they said I had to call Nissan North America for authorization. I never received a recall or any notice about fuel delivery problems, my Nissan warranty expired 3/25/15. Shouldn't fuel systems be covered under some type of safety designation" my Nissan Sentra 2009 has less than 30,000 miles on odometer, shouldn't fuel systems problems be considered a defect in design or workmanship"
