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.

2004 Nissan Murano Owner Comments

About one year ago I filed a complaint with both Nissan and the NHTSA concerning a punctured fuel tank. Nissan informed me that in the event NHTSA required a recall with respect to the fuel delivery system, Nissan would contact me to refund the cost of my repair. On June 29, 2006, I learned that NHTSA had closed the matter on January 31, 2006, with a requirement that Nissan correct the deficiency through a recall campaign. I confirmed with a NHTSA representative that such a campaign had been initiated by Nissan. I never received a recall notice from Nissan. Nor did I receive a communication from Nissan that they would live up to their promise of reimbursement. (they have now said they will do so with proof of repair which can only be confirmed by a Nissan dealer.) I called Nissan and they asked whether I had moved or changed the registration on the vehicle. I responded no, nothing had changed since I purchased the vehicle new at luther Nissan in inver grove heights, Minnesota. The Nissan representative (grace) in hyderabad, india, who did an excellent job of taking my information, informed me that there were not one, but two recalls on the vehicle. The second one concerns the seat belts. I never received notice of this recall either. Here we have not one but two safety-related NHTSA recalls that this Nissan customer (this is my fourth Nissan automobile) has failed to receive the recall notices on. Interestingly, Nissan has no problem with sending my monthly bill for Nissan financing through approximately 25 months to get my bills to me. This is highly troubling and requires immediate correction on Nissan's part.

Punctured gas tank from debris on highway. No warning lights, etc.. drove 45 miles leaking gas. Didn't realize it until we stopped the car and smelled gasoline very strongly. Had car towed to dealership for replacement of gas tank (which took 3 efforts to get it right) very concerned as to how easy it was to have gas tank punctured, either from material it's made of or location. Probably both!
