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.

Murano ES 3.2L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 210,000 miles

On April 6, 2014, my wife and I was returning from the North Georgia Mountains, in 'her' 2004 Murano. We were traveling approximately 55 MPH on a state hwy, when the car felt as if it had suddenly downshifted. There was absolutely no warning what-so-ever. There was no loss of electrical power, and the engine itself did not shut down. We got off the road, onto the grassy shoulder and came to a stop. I depressed the accelerator, and the engine would not "rev up". The engine was totally unresponsive to depressing the gas pedal. This has been the third occurrence of this identical issue in the past two weeks.

Meanwhile, we've since taken it to a local Nissan Dealership for (Lilburn, Ga) for diagnostics. The Service Tech assigned to us, could not explain the problem. We explained the circumstances in as plain English as we knew how, and they really did not appear too concerned. Imagine traveling 55 + down an interstate in a middle lane, with an '18 Wheeler' on your tail, and that happened. You'd have no escape. You would be dead. Needless to say, Nissan could not replicate the problem, nor did their diagnostic computers come up with anything tangible.

Anyone else experience this?

Thanks,

Jerry

Murano LX 3.2L V6

  • CVT transmission
  • 120,000 miles

Sudden loss of acceleration on busy street with service engine light. Pulled into passing lane and thought car had stalled. When I restarted, gas pedal unresponsive, car would only go less than 10 miles per hour. Had it towed to dealer who diagnosed a bad throttle and repaired for $500. I felt lucky it wasn't the transmission.
