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.

2001 Nissan Xterra Owner Comments

problem #1

May 152002

Xterra 4WD

Right rear floor pan began creaking in May 2002. Upon closer inspection, the right rear floorpan was found to have a crack at least an inch in length. The sheet metal is cracked completely through such that you can see light through it. I took the vehicle to Nissan West in ellicott city Maryland at about 38000 miles. They told me I was out of luck since the vehicle was then out of the 3/36 warranty. Since then the purchasing dealer has documented the crack and Nissan has been notified. I am awaiting a response from Nissan. This problem sounds like it could be the same or related to NHTSA item number 621967.
