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.

2010 Nissan Sentra Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 132010


  • 2,850 miles


After driving approx. 50 miles at highway speeds 65-70 mph and exiting to a full stop, engine would rev up as usual but only move 1 mph. Transmission not fully engaged. This puts one in harms way with no ability to move out of the way. Occurred in all gears. Only way to get back to normal was to shut off engine and restart. This occurred three times in a row on same day (10/13/2010). Does not happen in normal Suburban driving or since that day because car not taken on highway since (or before 10/13/2010). Dealer (leith Nissan apex nc) was unable to reproduce or repair because tech only drove car for 4 miles on 50 mile per hour Suburban road with several stoplights.
