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.

Difficulty reading speedometer) I have a 2009 Nissan Versa hatchback. This safety complaint is based on the fact that the quadrant ( zero to 40 miles) cannot be read during most daylight hours. The backlight provides a contrast sufficient to read the speedometer only during evening and low light periods. It appears this is a design problem because the speedometer face is set so far back that is it deprived of natural light and/or the back light is not strong enough to create a contrast. The quadrant (70 to 100 mph) receives sufficient light to be read, but I never drive over 60 mph. This is indeed a safety hazard because in strict speed zones, especially schools that use camera enforcement, I am forced to drive with one hand on the wheel and the right hand holding a flash light. I made a complaint to Nissan and they advised they cannot do anything to correct the situation. I stress this design flaw on the part of Nissan is a hazard to safe driving.

The contact owns a 2009 Nissan Versa. While driving 40 mph during day light the contact noticed that the speedometer was difficult to see. The vehicle was taken to the dealership where the contact was informed that the failure could not be serviced. The current and failure mileages were 6000.
