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.

2002 Nissan Xterra Owner Comments

problem #1

Xterra 4WD 6-cyl

  • 70,540 miles


The right rear wheel separated from the axle. The nuts and bolts had loosened and fallen off. While driving down an off road path, the vehicle suddenly stopped. The emergency brake had engaged. The consumer noticed the tire shifted outside of the tire well about 2 inches. As the consumer examined under the vehicle, he noticed that of the 4 bolts holding the wheel to the axle only one remained and didn't have a nut holding it. (all four nuts had loosened to the point of falling off) at a slow speed on a gravel surface it had broken the brake line, parking brake, and various parts of the brake drum.
