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.

A brand new car bought early January 2009. It has 60885 miles when incident occurred. The muffler fall down and broke at flange connection point. Went to Nissan dealer to check out and exam the problem. They indicate that a corrosion from inside the muffler pipe has occurred and caused this cracks, so it fall down. It was clear a poor manufacturing, or default in manufacturing this part was the reason to cause this incident. Dealer offered to replace it with a new part with cost up to $ 600, where it supposed to be free of charge. I would to claim Nissan us Corp. Responsibility for this incident. They did not made early recall to replace this part where they knew the problem. It was clear that they wait to happen at any time to make more profits. This it looks like as a fraud. Suppose controversy, this muffler fall down on high speed road, it may be cause, and could be, a deadly accident. Therefore, I am asking you please to investigate this problem with all Nissan vehicles, and do what is necessary to protect us from such accident, and to provide us with a suitable compensation. Thank you.

My suspension spring snapped while pulling out of my driveway. This is a known problem with Nissan Versas. I have contacted Nissan na and my local dealer and there is no current recall. I replaced both springs and they were both rusted and flawed. Luckily I wasn't traveling on the highway at the time, or it could have been a lot worse. I encourage those who have similar experiences to contact Nissan and file complaints both with the na office and NHTSA.

Versa 4-cyl

I was driving at 45 mph and a loud "thump" under my car sounded like something hit the undercarriage. I looked back and could not see anything on the road. The next day, heard a "clang" under the as I decelerated from 20 mph. I stopped and found a piece of my right front coil spring in the roadway. The entire bottom coil of the spring had snapped right through the metal and fallen off the car. This is the second coil spring on my car that has done this. The left spring snapped the same way, about a year ago. The manufacturer must have used bad metal for the springs, and they could keep snapping while I am driving. It was dangerous when the first spring snapped, but if both springs snap on the same car, there is a serious defect.
