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.

The contact owns a 2004 Nissan Murano. While attempting to merge into traffic, the vehicle failed to accelerate. The contact coasted the vehicle to the side of the road and shut off the engine. She restarted the vehicle after 5 minutes and it began to accelerate. The vehicle was driven to the dealer and they cleared the throttle control actuator code. The speed was unknown.

problem #1

Apr 012004

Murano 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,000 miles
I don't know the exact date this problem started so I have estimated it below. The car, when thoroughly warmed up (1/2 hour of continuous highway driving) does not respond to the gas pedal when in dead stop and go traffic (like at a toll booth) depresssing the gas pedal a normal amount brings no response from the car, no reving, no motion. Depressing the pedal further causes the car to surge ahead in a fast out of control manner. This does not happen in the winter, spring summer and fall only. The service department is unable to address this problem, they say, because their service computer is not generating any problem codes.
