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

Originally filed under 10284376. The replaced transfer case has now went out again. Nissan is stating they will not warranty the transfer case unless I install and upgraded switch that is located on the console. This seems to be a design defect and a way for Nissan to correct the problem at the consumers expense. The company needs to be responsible for their products.

The cvt transmission went out in my 2004 Murano with 70,000. Prior to it going out I was experimenting unexpected acceleration and deceleration from the transmission. When approaching a stop light I let off the accelerator only to have the vehicle to accelerate before slowing down.

Two transfer case failures leaving the car stopped in traffic. Needed to be towed to dealer. Date listed is for last failure only. Dealer replaced the transfer case under warranty the first time. Second time required $4000 payment. No explanation as to the cause of the failure provided by dealer.
