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.

2012 Nissan Versa Owner Comments

2012 Nissan Versa. Consumer writes in regards to several issues with vehicle and quality the consumer stated the defroster was a major concern. In order to turn on the defroster, he must turn the knob to defrost, but also slide the horizontal switch underneath the dash to defrost as well. Then, he had to turn the driver and passenger side vents toward the glass, all while operating the vehicle. The defroster worked fair at best. It only eliminated about half the fog on the front windshield and none on the rear windshield and side windows. Half the time, when the consumer attempted to turn off the vehicle, the key did not want to come out of the ignition. He would have to jiggle the key and the shift knob to get the key out. The auto door locks did not unlock when he put the vehicle in park. The vehicle had to be turned off in order for the auto doors to unlock. Also, the transmission would emit a loud bang, when the consumer put the vehicle in reverse.
