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 thermostat and fan clutch in the cooling system of the vehicle has failed 3 times in the years I have owned my Nissan. The engine will rise in temperature and because of the fan clutch and thermostat failure, the engine temperature rises to unsafe levels.

Since the vehicle was purchased brand new from Nissan, hot air from the engine constantly pours through the ventilation system and into the cabin area, even when the air is turned off.
