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

loose seat

Front seat started rocking back and forth. I inspected and the right, rear metal frame is fractured leading to a floating of the seat in this area. Not interested in spending $1000 to get fixed, especially if already a faulty design. It looks like a good metal worker could weld together.

Update from Jan 27, 2014: Clarification, it is the Driver's seat.

problem #1

Aug 142007

(reported on)

Murano SL AWD 3.5L V6

  • CVT transmission
  • 98,000 miles

The drivers seat is loose and moves around and from side to side. I contacted my dealer and they said that the Lifter Link Slide Assembly was broken and would need to be replaced at the tune of $600. There is a TSB (Technical Service Bulletin) out on this exact problem. Since my vehicle is out of warranty, Nissan North America has refused to fix it and therefore, own up to this safety issue. I would hate to see what would happen during a crash. I filed a complaint with the NHTSA. If you have had this same thing happen with your Nissan power seat, please file a complaint with them.
