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.

problem #2

Dec 182007

Murano S

  • Automatic transmission
  • 40,000 miles


I have tried everything to stop the rattling,( high quality gas and oil), when I accelerate. Nothing helps. It's a piece of junk. with only 40,000 miles I am so disappointed. My mechanic said they all belong in the junk yard! He knows cars, he's been in the business for over 30 years. He gets them in his shop a few times a month. The car is only three years old, and at $30,000 that's a big rip off. Don't buy this car! Can't fix the problem.

Murano SE V6

  • CVT transmission
  • 70,000 miles

while accelerating begins to either a: lose power or b: sputter and act like the gas pedal is being pumped. Saw a similar post on here and the solution was to tighten the clamps on the large pipes between the air filter box and the throttle body. Found one section to be very loose and tightened it down. Took it for a test drive and the problem was solved except, during the test drive the pipe must have worked loose as the problem started again. Sure enough, checked the pipes and they had worked loose again. Any suggestions on how to keep these things from working loose?
