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.

Same warpage of front brakes. Dealer said all they are doing is turning rotors. If the shudder continues, what happens when the caliper bracket breaks? the caliper spins and tears the brake line loose, wow no brakes. Nisson will be sued if this is not fixed quickly.

Front end of vehicle has terrible vibration while braking caused by overheated and warped front disc brake rotors. Front brakes rotors and pads have been replaced by the dealer twice (at roughly 6,000 and once at 11,093 miles). The replacement rotors at the 11,093 mile service are redesigned rotors intended to fix the recurring problem. At 17,752 miles the problem recurred and the new redesigned rotors had to be resurfaced by the dealer.

Serious brake vibration problem, started within first 2K miles, continued to get worse. Have had the brakes replaced 4 times in 5 months. Vibration (shaking of the steering wheel gets worse after approx. 2K miles, almost un controlable by 5K miles).I have been told by dealer on every repair that this probably woudn't repair the problem. Nissans Consumer Affairs has been no help. Filed claim with the BBB auto line on 2-4-05. Day 12 and still no response from Nissan. Serious safety hazard.

Consumer complained about a front brake problem. Owner had the rotors and pads replaced after 7,000 miles. When driving, the vehicle shook violently when braking. Owner contacted the manufacturer, and was told that they were aware that the brakes were defective because of a design flaw. The consumer took the vehicle in for service several times but the problem was not fixed.

While stopping truck wheel shakes left to right and gets more violent the harder I stopped. Truck had about 4000 miles on it. Took to dealer he replaced front rotors and brake pads it fixed the problem. Now with 6000 mile I notice the same thing starting to happen again. Never had any vechiles brakes fail with so few miles. This must be a defect from factory.
