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.

Car pulls to the right since I bought it. I took it to the dealer several times about 4 to do an alignment and still the same its very dangerous.

This is a very solid, and stable vehicle in the snow and ice, (with studded snow tires, all season radials only work in Florida) it handles well, and performs nicely for a small SUV. The only complaints that I have with this vehicle, is that the ride is a bit rough. And it is a bit uncomfortable for taller people on long rides. To those that are complaining about the vehicle pulling to the left and right. Cure #1, get the car aligned. #2, check the road you are driving on, the track width on the Xterra is narrow, it may be catching a groove in the road. #3 check the tire pressures, to complaints about the braking....... have the brakes checked, rotors, pads, or calipers could be sticking.

Vehicle vibrates so hard that passenger's seat back vibrates as it the seat is broken and makes an annoying noise. Contacted dealer they said they can not do anything about it. Please provide any info you have.
