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.

2013 Nissan Sentra Owner Comments

problem #2

  • 126 miles


The contact owns a 2013 Nissan Sentra. While driving approximately 20 mph, the brake pedal was depressed and there was a loud grinding noise coming from all of the wheels. The vehicle was taken to a dealer where the diagnosis was unknown. The vehicle was repaired, but the failure recurred. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was approximately 126.

While applying the brake pedal decelerating the car, the car suddenly had a very loud grinding noise on the rear passenger wheel, like the brake rotor grinding against some metal parts that broke loose inside. After stopping the car inspecting passenger rear wheel and found nothing, I got back to the car slowly accelerating it. The loud grinding noise got worse and I felt the brake pedal kinda light (like not all 4 brakes are being applied). I suspect the brake shoes or components broke apart inside the brake drum of the rear wheel (passenger side). Fortunately, I was at slow speed (20-30mph) and only one block away from home. Will have it towed to the local Nissan dealer to have it checked out as I only had this car for about 7-8 month from brand new. Since this is an all-new design 2013 Sentra, I am concern this is a flaw on the brake design that could cause extreme dangerous hazards on the road. Though my car should be covered under manufacturer 36-month bumper to bumper warranty, I am strongly asking to have the rear brake system on the 2013 Nissan Sentra investigated and recalled / corrected if necessary. This would help not only protect my family, my investment, but also others from running into the same incident operating this particular model in the future.
