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.

2011 Nissan Sentra Owner Comments

problem #3

Sentra 4-cyl

  • 35,000 miles


It was driving ok on a school parking lot, no warning lights for check engine or battery; and after parking & turning off the engine the car did not restart anymore. Battery is good, fuel pump is good too, no blown fuses, nothing seems wrong but simply it won't restart!

Brand new car under 4K miles on it I was driving between 60-65mph on the busy I95N of fort lauderdale miami cars speeding up to 70mph with my family on a vacation then all of sudden the service light pop up and after that the car lost its power so I coasted on the side of the road really scary. It seems that the problem with this Sentra are still active even with new cars so Nissan are we gonna wait for the next incident?

On Dec. 11, 2011, the car would not start in the morning. Went back in the afternoon and started fine. On Dec. 12, 2011, the car hesitated to start in the morning. Took to dealer and they replaced battery. On Dec. 19, 2011, the car would not start at first and only started when brake was pumped several times, and still hesitated to start. The car would not go faster than 40 mph, with the gas pedal to the floor, and the rpms would not go past 2. after every stop the car took 2 minutes to get back up to 40 mph. Took to the shop, they could not find anything wrong.
