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

My 2001 Nissan Xterra shuts off while in motion. Also, will not start at times. Overall, car has shut off or not started probably about 10 or so times. According to Nissan the recall on this part was already fixed before I owned the car (I bought it preowned)....but obviously it is the same problem again therefore they have not corrected the problem at all. However, since they repaired it once they have washed their hands of it.

The contact owns a 2001 Nissan Xterra. The vehicle was taken to be repaired under a recall. The remedy was performed by silicone spray being sprayed over the strap sending unit, which rests on the fuel pump and indicates how much fuel the vehicle is using. After having the vehicle repaired, while driving approximately 65 mph, the vehicle suddenly stopped. The contact feels that this is a safety issue because a crash could have occurred. He feels that the repair was not fixed properly, but covered up instead. He would like the repair work investigated. The NHTSA campaign id number was unknown. The current and failure mileages were 92,000.
