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.

The fuel gauge/sensor is not reading properly. It will show the tank as empty even when it is not. I have tried to contact Nissan directly, however they will not address the problem even though there are three other models of car that have been recalled from the same year due to the same problem. They have also issued a service bulletin regarding the same issue but refused to do anything to remedy it on my vehicle. This concerns me as in reading other complaints regarding the same issue except that the vehicle can stall while in motion creating a very unsafe driving experience.

The vehicle was not driving well and the fuel sensor was not working properly. We took the vehicle to an independent repair shop. The lower control arms were replaced at that time, however the fuel sensor was not as it was an additional expense we could not pay for out of pocket. These are both known problems to Nissan and have already been recalled on other SUV's of the same model year. In speaking to Nissan there is nothing they are willing to do to ensure the safety of the vehicle or to reimburse us for the repair already made.

Fuel gauge does not register accurate level of fuel in tank. Safety concern as not able to accurately know how much gas is in tank.

2007 Nissan Murano. Consumer states problem with fuel meter resulting in faulty reading of the fuel level. The consumer stated the fuel meter did not show the correct fuel level, the service engine light illuminated and the consumer started experiencing static in the vehicle. The consumer took the vehicle to the dealer and they stated the vehicle was fixed, however the consumer experienced the same problem four additional times. Each time the consumer went back to the dealer, they replaced the fuel meter and other related parts.

I was on hwy 10 traveling from houston to nm, headed West just past exist 138 in normal driving conditions. I has just finished fueling up my vehicle and was back on the hwy. I ran over small object in the road that caused a puncture in the back of the fuel tank. I was signaled by passing call to pullover immediately as there was fuel was pouring out of the vehicle, making it an extreme fire hazard & undriveable. I was following behind my boyfriend during this incident who also ran over this same object and nothing happened to his vehicle (BMW). I called Nissan the next day ( I have reference # ) & I was told there was no recall for 2007 regarding fuel tank puncture problems.he said this was a problem for the previous year models and not my model year. The fuel tank does appear however to be exposed and appears to be prone to this problem. There are approx 17500 miles on this 2007 Murano. The fuel tank was patched the next day, and the SUV driven to it's destination without incident, and parked until it could be towed by the dealership for repairs. A new fuel tank will be used to replace the damaged one. The dealership informed me this would not be covered and I should contact my insurance. I am very concerned that this may happen again. This was the 1st time for this vehicle to be driven on the hwy as it was only driven locally on city streets prior. The same object did not cause the same problem for my boyfriends vehicle nor for the other cars who ran over it as well.
