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.

2004 Nissan Murano Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 052004

Murano 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 6,500 miles


On the evening of Aug 4, 2004, I was driving home, noticed that the battery and brake light were illuminated on my new (6500 miles) Nissan Murano. I planned to take it to the local dealer the next day, as soon as I completed two unchangeable appointments. As I started to leave the parking lot on the second appointment, the vehicle would not accelerate. I called the dealer and my husband, who came to get me. The vehicle had to be towed. Diagnosis: Failed alternator. Needless to say, I was not happy. They had to order the part, and the repair was finished on the following Tuesday, Aug 10. The service manager said he had previously had 4 or so failed alternators, and didn't understand why Nissan had not recalled the vehicles. The repair has been fine, the dealership loaned me a vehicle, even though I bought it out of town. Then I started to check the internet, and found that there are a lot of alternator failures. I am thankful that mine happed in a local parking lot instead of on the road.
