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.

So sick and embarrassed to have to lean on and or pull window up myself and hold the switch at the same time. It takes two hands to do and while driving not very safe. So if there is no solution because I read the numerous complaints. I'd like to have the old manual window cranks installed in my car instead. I'm sick of this aggravation. Please tell me a solution.

The windows do not operate and if you open the trunk all four doors automatically lock. Engine still sounds great and runs smoothly. Electrical issue is a safety issue.

Xterra LS

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles

I purchased a 2001 Xterra used from a dealer with 4000 mi in 2002. In 2005 all 4 power windows failed. Checked with dealer and they said my car missed a service bulletin cutoff based on mfg date by a few days. The repair cost estimate was very expensive so I didn't get it fixed. I have been driving the car with a piece of wood propping up the driver side window, otherwise it drops down, and the other 3 windows are taped shut ever since. Since the fix is futile as the parts keep failing from what I have read on this subject, the only thing to do is live with it. My family has switched over to 3 Jeep Libertys (2003--2006) and they really work fine--and they made good on recall items.

My advice is never buy anther Nissan, and buy Jeep Liberty instead.
