2006 Nissan Murano Owner Comments

problem #5

  • 186,789 miles


What I'm experiencing, I lose acceleration power when the car is in drive. Tthe car stalls and will not move forward when I press the accelerator down to the floor, yet the engine and electrical maintain its power. When the car stalls, I press the peddle serval times and the rpms doesn't accelerate up expect when I place the car in park. When I place the car in park the acceleration power resumes, but once in drive there's no power again. I experience the problem the most when my air condition or heater is running. When I turn off the air conditioner the acceleration power resumes, but spotters. Strange!!!

The car lurches and pauses when I am going at very low speed and take my foot off the gas. The car does not cruise at low speeds and feels as though I am hitting the brakes.

After coming to a complete stop, vehicle will intermittently not accelerate when stepping on the gas. Period/duration of non-acceleration is not predictable, nor can you depend on being able to get out of the way of an oncoming vehicle should you be in the process of making a left-hand turn. This is a severe safety hazard.
