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.

My 2008 Nissan Versa abruptly slows from 60 mph to 30 mph and gradually slows to a stop. This only occurs after I have driven between 70 to 150 miles. It has happened 3 times. Nissan has replaced the transmission and the fuel pump but the car still fails and I am afraid to drive it on an interstate.
