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.

Murano 6-cyl

  • 71,000 miles


Transmission suddenly seized and vehicle would not move, even when being pushed in neutral. Luckily it was in my parking lot but if this had happened in traffic or on the highway it could have been a dangerous and potentially deadly situation.

Murano 6-cyl

I've been having problems with this car every month since I bought it in 2011 from arrow motors Inc, 2225 wakeling St phila pa 19137. The never disclose to me of the issues. If they ran a car fax I would have know. It wasn't until recently when I attempted to sell the car and was informed through car fax that it was in 5 accidents. If I had known this I would have never bought the car. This is completely unjust.
