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.

2009 Nissan Murano Owner Comments

problem #2

Murano 6-cyl

  • 61,000 miles


The keyless remote appears to lock the doors and set the security system. The door handle was pulled allowing entry into the car while it was thought to be locked. The alarm sounds but the car can be accessed when it appears and sounds as if it is properly locked. Only the drivers door locks. The door can be opened while in motion from the inside.

I recently had the opportunity to drive a 2009 Nissan Murano equipped with their "smart key". similarly, I also drove a 2007 Lexus gs with a "smart key". I have found that both vehicles can be shut off and exited with while it is inadvertently left in the "park" transmission position. Although a barely audible chime rings, a driver can exit the vehicle and if the vehicle is on an incline, it can roll freely!! I am astounded that there are no "neutral safety" controls on these new vehicles. Standard key ignitions prevent the driver from releasing the key in any position except "park"... not so with these new "smart key" cars! I foresee many accidents occurring unless some correction is made in this "option". I don't understand how a government vehicle safety check would overlook this flaw.
