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.

2008 Nissan Versa Owner Comments

Our 2007 Nissan Versa has a ignition starting problem. It is a brand new car and will not start. You have to crank it to get it to start. There are complaints across North America on this problem. The sales manager at orlando Nissan told me I will have to go through the service department and I already know others have failed at getting this problem fixed numerous times. This is a material defect and I am concerned for the safety of my wife and seven year old. It also has a loud clicking in the car when you turn the wheel hard to the left. There is no fix and the service departments will surely string this out and cost us time away from work and home and replace other things that are not causing it just to look proactive. I am not satisfied with that and would like the department to consider investigating this to recall this vehicle for an unsafe engine.
