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.

problem #2

Xterra 6-cyl

  • 73,100 miles
Air bag sensor light starts blinking after engine startup and continues to blink until engine is turned off. Sent email to Nissan in Dec 2013 regarding this issue and they indicated "a review of our system indicates that the above-referenced vehicle is not currently involved in any recalls or service campaigns." I find it hard to believe this is not a Nissan issue when there have been air bag sensor recalls in 2005, 2006, 2007,2008,2009, and 2010.
