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.

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

I have less than 61,000 miles on my 09 Murano. I need to know why when I list my VIN, there are no recalls, yet if I search make, model, and yr.,without VIN, three are listed. Three which I have had all happen air bags, air bags and electrical system, and TPMS (tire pressure monitoring system), says TPMS was in certain states. How can you specify this recall to those states? people move, travel to those states, and yes, we use road salt here. My TPMS came on this past July and will not go off. But, seems your recall may not apply in the South. I also, in July 2014, had all 4 motor mounts replaced. Nissan said all 4 would need replacing soon after hearing a knocking when ever I started off (like at red light or stop sign). Motor could fall out. Nissan was going to charge me $800 for one (all I could afford at one time). A friend took it to a well known reputable auto store and they replaced all 4 for $900. Now Nissan would not be over charging that much, would they" yea, right. Affected parts? seems there are a lot of the 153 complaints filed refer to motor mounts. Have any motors fallen out to cause accident"

There was no incident. But...... Nissan has a recall on several vehicles for the airbag sensor on the passenger side airbag not working - including the 2009 Muranos. They said my VIN does not match up on the recall - so they will not fix it. Even though they haved recalled many vehicles for the exact same thing including the 2009 Murano. I would think this is a major safety concern and hope you guys can help enforce a recall on this. Updated 4/24/2015

Air bag light stays on. Upon review by the Nissan dealership, I was informed that the sensor underneath the passenger seat could be the reason the light was blinking. The cost of repair would be $2500. Upon review on the Nissan website this information was found "Nissan is recalling 204,361 my 2007-2008 Altima, Altima hybrid, 350Z, 350Z roadster, my 2008 Altima coupe, rogue, my 2009 Murano, and infiniti my 2007-2008 G35 sedan, my 2008 G37 coupe and EX35 passenger vehicles equipped with Continental automotive systems' occupant classification system (OCS) control units. A varistor in the OCS control unit located in the passenger seat cushion may have been manufactured out of specification. Under certain conditions, this could cause an interruption of signal between the OCS and the air bag control unit." My vehicle is having the same problem, yet I was informed by Nissan that my vehicle was not involved in the recall. It seems as if this is a safety issue and needs to be investigated.

The steering column is stuck and the motor and gears failed. This has been listed more than 100 times on the internet in various blogs. Turns out the automatic adjustment each time you get in and out of the car kills the motor and gears and is actually addressed in a service bulletin ntb-09-073 having this happen also affected the air bag and the warning light is now on.

Supplemental air bag warning light will not turn off, also passenger air bag status light remains lit even with adult riding in passenger seat. Air bag safety should not fail on a car ever. TPMS light will not turn off with tires inflated at proper pressure.

Dashboard air bag warning light began flashing. Subsequent trip to the dealer diagnosed a defective passenger seat sensor, which is built in to the seat bottom, so the entire unit must be replaced. Although I had purchased an extended warranty, that part was not covered and the seat bottom must be replaced as it is a safety issue. Forwarded a request for assistance to Nissan usa, and the jury is still out on that move. There have been very few passengers in that automobile, with the great majority of the miles on the car being driver only miles.

On approx. 10 Jan 2012 the airbag light on the dash began flashing. I made an appointment with john lee Nissan to have it checked and serviced. After researching the codes the dealer determined the air bag sensor in the passenger seat cushion failed. The sensor is built into the seat cushion therefore requiring a new seat. The vehicle is out of warranty so I opened a case with Nissan Consumer Affairs (nca). File # 7357731. The service manger at john lee Nissan sent his report to nca with his determination that given the failure is a direct result of engineering and a safety concern for the public, nca should cover the cost of repairs. Nissan has had VIN specific recalls for seat-seatbelt-airbag components in 2009. See recall information listed below. I pointed out to the dealer and to nca the listed recall but they informed me it did not include my VIN. After numerous conversations with [xxx]at nca he also felt the repair should be covered by Nissan. He was not able to make a decision due to the case being elevated to a higher tear within nca. Nca has denied the claim. Release: Nissan North America, Inc. 20081007 component: Summery Nissan is recalling 204,361 my 2007-2008 Altima, Altima hybrid, 350Z, 350Z roadster, my 2008 Altima coupe, rogue, my 2009 Murano, and infiniti my 2007-2008 G35 sedan, my 2008 G37 coupe and EX35 passenger vehicles equipped with Continental automotive systems' occupant classification system (OCS) control units. A varistor in the OCS control unit located in the passenger seat cushion may have been manufactured out of specification. Under certain conditions, this could cause an interruption of signal between the OCS and the air bag control unit (acu). Consequences: This could result in the passenger air bag being suppressed which could fail to provide adequate protection in the event of a crash. Nissan North America, Inc. 20081007.

Murano

  • 7,000 miles
I purchased a new 2009 Nissan Murano in January of 2009. After 5 months of use and 7000 miles the vehicle's airbag light came on. The vehicle was sent to the service department and no problem could not be located and the light was reset. About two weeks later the light came on again and an additional passenger side airbag light came on. We returned the vehicle to the dealership for service and we told the part was on a national back order and it could take several days to 6 months for the part to come in. Even if this was the part that needed to be replaced. The dealership thinks this will take care of the problem but cannot guarantee it will work. The nature of this malfunction and the unavailability of parts for repair might cause problems for other consumers.
