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

Fuel tank protector 2004 Murano: There was a recall on my vehicle and a plastic fuel tank protector was added. This repair reduces the ground clearance and the has broken twice on my 2004 Murano. Any road debris is likely to hit this low point on the vehicle. The manufacturer should inspect these regularly or come up with a better fix. One can guess that there are vehicles that had the protector added and that protector has subsequently been broken and fallen off. I did call 1-800-nissan1 to request reimbursement for the failed protector and the company kindly agreed to make the reimbursement. Further, santa barbara Nissan agreed to install the protector free of charge.

At 90,000mi needed motor mounts, control arms, and front end is still nothing to write home about. It won't take gas and it bucks.

Murano 6-cyl

  • 98,000 miles
Due to a recall a plastic shield was installed a few years ago by dealer to protect the fuel tank from road debris. Something must have hit the shield causing four of the 6 plastic fasteners to break off or fail due to age. The shield was dangling on passenger side. I purchased and installed replacement fasteners. Most people will not know to inspect for this leaving the tank exposed. I think Nissan's solution is inadequate. The shield should be more robust. Perhaps metal with metal fasteners? I also think this should be a recall of the recall.
