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 #3

Murano SL 3.5L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 160,000 miles


Because of exhaust manifold is broken, it makes really awful noise. People turn when I stop at the traffic light. Engine burning oil because air gets in the engine I believe. Took it to dealer paid $125 for trouble shooting even they could tell me it is exhaust manifold problem by hearing the noise, because local mechanic told me but I took it too the dealership anyway.

Murano LE 3.5L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 106,876 miles

This 2004 Murano was a lemon. Exhaust manifold, all bearings, driver seat, all cat convertors, power locks, suspensions, exhaust pipes are some of the major things that went bad before 200K kms. The check engine light wont go off due to rusting fuel feeder pipe. What a nightmare. Nissan messed up on this suv.

Murano SE 3.5L

  • CVT transmission
  • 96,000 miles

Exhaust manifold cracked- car had sounded like it had a tiny exhaust leak for several weeks and suddenly one morning it sounded like there wasn't a muffler. Took it to the dealer and we got to purchase not only a new manifold but also a new catalytic converter. The dealer mentioned that this has been "happening" to Murano's.
