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.

Takata recall - my chief complaint is that I have so many recall notices for both my Nissan vehicles this one went unnoticed for several weeks. I live in a high humidity area so I assume we are at risk. The recall notice should have included a voucher for a rental. This should be the law. I think it is absurd that I have a car that seats 4-5, but now I can only ride 3. we carpool several girls to school, so this has been a major inconvenience. The Nissan corporation and the dealer (bill hood) agreed to provide a rental. Then they argued (through me) about who was going to pay for it. Several weeks went by as they bickered. Finally they could not agree to pay for a rental said "never mind." I was appalled at the delay, the games they played, then the final decision to not supply a rental after they promised they would. I feel this was a tactic to delay things until they got the parts "at the end of September". yet here we are in November with no fix in sight. This has been quite a hardship due to our carpool situation. I also think it is rediculous that the info about "death or serious injury" was not in bold print on the card, like other info was. When I mentioned this to the Nissan rep (summer was her name), she said "the card says what?" she had no clue of what the recall card stated. Nissan's help, or lack there of, was laughable. Please help us get a rental (paid for by the offending company or dealer) or the parts we need. I paid for a car that seats 4. thanks! (*unhappy Nissan owning family)

It has been over 5 months since the recall was announced. Nissan dealer says that they do not have parts. In the meantime we are asked not to allow anyone to ride in the front seat. This is extremely inconvenient. Also, I do not think I can even sell the car before this recall is complete. NHTSA recall number: 16V-349. Recall date: May 23, 2016. Manufacturer recall number: PM656. We contacted Nissan of walnut creek regarding this.

Air bag recall and could not check VIN to see if recall was for my make model and year to see if it can be repaired if it is affected not a cover up so they do not have to fix it.

I moved my passenger seat back as far as it would go and my airbag light came on and has been on for months. I have moved the seat back and forth and it is still on. Not sure why moving my seat to the far back position would cause my airbag light to come on. It really concerns me.

Versa 4-cyl

  • 62,000 miles
Driving in snowy/icy conditions. Vehicle started angle towards oncoming vehicle (large power company bucket/boom truck). The trucks driver (there were more than one) saw me coming at him. The truck moved to the side of the road to avoid me. I collided into the driver corner of the large truck head-on. Bumper went into the engine. Tail-end of my vehicle swung around to meet his driver side with my passenger side. When my vehicle broke loose from the bumper, the whole front end came off and part of the engine came out. Once I collided with my passenger side, I spun around hitting the rear of my vehicle as well. I slid back across the road as I was spinning into a small area near a fence. That is where the vehicle stopped. I had to be cut out of the vehicle. Now.... after all this; the only air bag that blew was the curtain bag on the passenger side. The driver curtain airbag, the airbag in the steering wheel nor the passenger airbag in the dash did not go off. I have suffered body(physical and mental) damage from this accident. I feel that since I hit head-on, the driver airbag should have deployed. I do believe this is a defect that Nissan does not want to admit to.
