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.

2009 Nissan Versa Owner Comments

problem #1

Nov 282013

Versa 4-cyl

  • 54,000 miles


Front door power lock cable broken in actuator for second time in 3 years. Actions: Driver opens door using interior door handle while at the same time removing the key from the ignition and activating the automatic unlocking of all car doors. Result: Front door lock cable broken in actuator. Now the driver door stays locked while all the other doors are unlocked using the keyfob. This is a safety issue because I have to open my window to open the driver door using the outdoor handle and could not get out in an emergency. First incident was in 2011, it was fixed under the car original 3 year/36000 miles warranty. 2nd incident Nov 28 2013. Nissan estimates $295 to replace the actuator + cable.
