Keep in mind:

I subscribed to Alldata for my 2000 Maxima. Imagine my surprise when service bulletins that had appeared months earlier on Maxima.org were NOT on Alldata. I emailed them and listed specific service bulletins that were missing on their database. I got an email back from Alldata which stated that Alldata "STRIVES" to post service bulletins in a 6 to 12 month period. Note - the word "strive" and the fact that Alldata made no guarantee! In fact, many of the missing service bulletins at Alldata had been issued far beyond the twelve month limit Alldata "strives" for.



In my view Alldata is sloppy, slow and incomplete but they are also the only game in Town.

To get a true view of the service bulletins relevant to your vehicle: you need Maxima.org, Alldata, and also a friend at a local Nissan dealership. The Best buy is Maxima.org..



HID Anti-Theft Kit Information

Put in NHTSA # 635806 into http://www.nhtsa.dot.gov/cars/problems/tsb/. Unfortunately there isn't a PDF of it on there.

I'll host any TSB that isn't listed on my site, as long as it's for a 5th gen. If you have an actual TSB and it isn't listed on my site, email the TSB to me and I'll add it to the site.

JN1DA31D*2T400020 - 442089.

The number of vehicles potentially affected is approximately 67,000.
Please review the disclaimer located at the bottom of this page for more instruction.

Reason for Recall
One of the parts of the front suspension on your vehicle which is called the transverse link may break where it is mounted to the frame. This may cause a knocking sound and abnormal steering. This may result in difficulty controlling the vehicle which, if ignored, could cause a crash.

What Nissan Will Do
In order to prevent this incident from occurring, your Nissan dealer will replace the transverse links on the left and right sides with new ones. This free service should take about two hours to complete, but your Nissan dealer may require your vehicle for a longer period of time based upon their work schedule.

What You Should Do
Contact your Nissan dealer at your earliest convenience in order to arrange an appointment to have your vehicle repaired. If you notice a knocking sound from the front of your vehicle and/or abnormal steering, you should stop driving and contact your Nissan dealer to arrange to have the vehicle towed to the dealer for repair.

If the dealer fails, or is unable to make the necessary repairs free of charge, you may contact the National Consumer Affairs Office, Nissan North America, Inc. at P.O. Box 191, Gardena, California 90248-0191. The toll free number is 1-800-NISSAN1 (1-800-647-7261). If you reside in Hawaii, please call 1-808-836-0888.

You may also contact the Administrator of the National Highway Traffic SafetyAdministration, 400 Seventh Street, S.W., Washington, D.C. 20590 or call the toll-free Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236.

Nissan recalls may apply to specific VIN ranges, and due to equipment variation, options, prior repairs, etc., your vehicle may or may not be involved in a recall. To determine if your specific vehicle is affected by any recall, please contact your local Nissan dealer. It will be necessary to supply the vehicle make, model and identification number (VIN) to the dealer.
