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.

Nissan, Xterra, 2001. Within 6 months of purchasing the vehicle I began having problems with the brake pedal. When applying the brakes after a short period of time the pedal will sink approximately 1 - 2 inches. I have taken the vehicle several times to the dealer since I purchased it. The first time the dealer told that they replace the booster. The problem still continues, and I have taken it back to the dealer and they tell me that there is nothing wrong with the brakes. The problem had not been resolved to this date which has been three years.

When applying the brakes after a short period of time the pedal will sink approximately 1 - 2 inches. I have taken the vehicle several times to the dealer since I purchased it. The first time I was told that they replace the bake booster. The symptoms continued. When I return to the dealer I was told that there was nothing wrong with the brakes. The problem continues every time that I have to apply the brakes for more that a few seconds.
