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.

My gas tank never shows full when it is filled. When fill my Xterra with gas, it overflows everytime unless I manually stop the process by guessing how many gallons I have put in. At that point the gas splashes out and overflows. Then when I start my car. The gas gauge only shows 3/4 tank full, never completely filled. When I first bout this vehicle in October of 2000, this problem was present but the dealership could not fix it. Then I read about the recall 2 years later on the internet and decided to take it in again. The second time, I took my Xterra to a local Nissan dealership about the recal issued by NHTSA in 2002 but theysaid my vehicle was not part of recall due to VIN.

When filling truck up with gasoline and when tank is full there is a clicking noise that should let consumer know that pump is full. But, instead gasoline constantly leaks to the ground. Dealership is aware of problem.
