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.

The blue paint on portions of the hood of our 2011 Nissan Versa sl is not adequately sticking to the primer, and thus large chunks of paint are chipping away over time. The amount of paint loss is greater after long stretches of highway driving, indicating loss due to wind. What started as a 1" X 1" chunk of paint becoming cracked and eventually separating and falling off, has now turned into a 7" X 4" area of exposed primer, as well as a line of soon to be lost paint on the hood along the passenger side. One day I found my toddler with blue paint in her mouth. It turns out she reached and grabbed a chunk of loose paint while I was pulling her out of her carseat.

I was on my way to work one morning at 430am I was on the interstate. I felt a pull in my steering wheel and heard a big popping noise and pulled over to check on it and everything to me at that time looked ok. I keep driving 5 more mins or so and I heard the noise again and at that time my passenger tire was flat, I had to call a tow truck which costed me 160$. I thought it was just a regular tire blow out till my I take it to get fixed and my suspension had busted. I had to replace the front bumper (get it painted extra 135$), passenger side fender windshield wiper box, passenger fender well, ABS senor cable, get the suspension fixed and the plastic piece that goes along under the doors.(the long piece along the bottom) a total of 670$ out of my pocket
