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.

I was traveling on the highway and hit a sharp object. That sharp object punctured my gas tank and the tank began to leak. I called Nissan usa regarding recall number 35779. Nissan said that the tank had been replaced. However, sears told me that the Murano was still using a Nissan tank and should be covered by the recall. I have the part number on the work order from sears. Nissan denied my request. Nissan claim number is [xxx]. approximately June 10, 2014. I would like your help in seeking reimbursement from Nissan since I had to pay for the replacement tank and labor. My local Nissan dealer in bowie md also denied my request.

My 2006 Nissan Murano was purchased used March 2013. Since then, I have put over $4,000 worth of repairs into it and I am still having problems. The latest issue is the car having no power when pushing on the accelerator and it will surge when you finally get it to go. I've replaced fuel filter, catalytic converters, transfer case just to name a few of the repairs. I am in the repair shop at least 2X/month! now I read where there are many others having the same problem and Nissan ignoring the complaints! I now have a car I am making a huge car payment on that I cannot drive! plus I do not have the money to replace the transmission! I work in hospice and I drive to see patients every day and now I have no vehicle!!!! so it is now affecting not only my personal life but my work environment!!!!

Complained to Nissan dealer and was told nothing wrong. Complained at a later date and was told complaints have been made but no recall and if I wanted to pay for a complete gas system I could which would cost approx. $1000. When I get gas I have to get it when I am going home so I can shower due to gas spraying on me while pumping gas. Almost every time I pump gas it stops like it is full and gas spews back. Constantly have to move gas hose around and the gas nozzle to try to get gas. I have to have an extra set of clothes in my car because the gas smell makes me sick. One time I was sick all day vomiting because of this. This is dangerous and should be a recall.

Faulty fuel gauge, fuel float or fuel monitoring system. I filled up the car and the gauge reads empty. It will erratically show different fuel levels ranging anywhere from empty to half-full to full. This is a safety issue because it is impossible to know how much fuel is left. After doing a brief internet search I discovered that their are multiple entries for this issue from other Nissan owners.

Murano 6-cyl

  • 123,900 miles
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.

The fuel pumps shuts of when the car is running causing the car to shut off my mother drives this car and I got it with 20,000 miles and so far I had to replace the hi power steering line $250 the sun visors $400 at Nissan and know the fuel pump I haven't even got the price on this yet but I feel that Nissan are selling crap for cars I have 2 Nissan also a 2007 Altima got brand new and that at 300 miles I started having issue and Nissan still has not fixed any issue that stated they don't find any issues I think Nissan should be paying for this repair as it is a known issue and it can cause a person to shut off wile driving and cause a crash.
