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

Apr 222003

Xterra 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 42,833 miles


Xterra was making a popping sound when turning. After taking drivers side wheel off, I discovered broken sway bar bracket (left hand side). Top bolt missing threads not damaged which resulted in broken frame of vehicle. No other damage to underside of Xterra. Suspect top bolt never installed correctly. Nissan refused to warranty the frame despite my having an extended warranty. Had Xterra repaired by reputable body shop. Expert body shop opinion concurs with bolt backing out and causing damage. Body shop recommend repair before using Xterra, further damage could be caused including wreck. Paid for repair myself. Photos taken by the body shop and me.
