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 #2

Said vehicle stopped while leaving a light and entering I 395 in urban area with an oncoming tractor trailer coming swiftly behind me. The reason the vehicle stopped is because the air vac hose continually comes lose from regular use of a Nissan Murano 2004. This is the fifth time that the vehicle has stopped in the middle of traffic. Last year, the vehicle stopped going up a mountain in wv around a curve on a two-lane highway. The only reason that my daughter and I did not get hit and/or killed (due to location) was because of the assistance of an oncoming vehicle that was prepared with cones and information. Today, I almost got slammed into by a trailor. I had to get out of vehicle and wave arms to get him to stop. I am so angry, not only because this continues to happen, but because I have a six year old child who has been screaming out of fear during two of the incidents where the vehicle stopped. I called to file a complaint with Nissan motor acceptance corporation. They have done nothing and said that there was no recall which I cannot understand. Please help! something has to be done about this public safety hazard before someone gets killed.

Murano 6-cyl

Heard rattle on acceleration about a month before major problem; thought it was something in the car. Noise eventually went away. Started with noise again. Lasted two days. Noticed just as I turned into work parking lot that front windshield began to fog up at bottom. No amount of defrosting or opening windows would clear the windshield until it became almost too fogged to drive. Then car stalled out. Brake and battery lights came on. Could start it again, but didn't last long. Had to have car towed to dealer. Dealer determined steel tensioner bracket and pulley broke cutting drive belt. Dealer indicated not warranted under wrap coverage. Noticed in NHTSA list of complaints several similar occurrences with these parts. This appears to be a design flaw that the Nissan company should take responsibility for. It was a $400+ repair. Car has 46,000 miles on it.
