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.

When my husband pulled the driver's side handle to open the door, the handle came off in his hand. The repair cost $297.50 ( quoted price was $350 and we had a 15% discount coupon) interestingly they had the handle in stock. Attached picture of handle shows a hallow area that seems like it could be a defective part.

Sometimes the front driver's side door will not open from inside the vehicle. Normally after stopping and turning off the ignition the door locks will automatically unlock and you can pull the inside handle to open the door. The complaint concerns those times when the door lock does not disengage and you can not open the door from the inside. Even when manually moving the locking lever inside the door or trying to use the remote entry fob the door will not unlock. The only way I have been able to get the door open is by lowering the window and pulling the outside handle. It┐'s becoming more frequent and appears to be related to the outside handle not closing all the way after getting into the vehicle. I have noticed that sometimes after entering the vehicle and driving away there will be a thud in the door and I believe it is the outside handle flopping in to the closed position. The outside handle also seems to be separating so that an section closest to the car is not firmly attached to the rest of the handle, but if you hold pressure and force the two sections to stay together then there is no thud later. This can be a very dangerous situation if there is an immediate need to get out of the vehicle and the door won┐┐T open.

While driving, the sunroof exploded leaving a round, upward protruding, glass hole larger than a basketball. Sunroof was closed on a mild 82 degree day driving down the highway. Fortunately, the sun shade was closed which blocked shattering glass from hitting us directly while operating at highway speeds. Nissan did acknowledge instances of this nature on other models. An internet search of forums revealed many, many occurrences. This was not an impact crack, break. It was literally an outward explosion!!

2010 Nissan Murano. While driving on highway, the glass of the sunroof suddenly and spontaneously shattered into bits. It was not hit by any object, as traffic was clear on the highway and there was no overpass in the area. Nissan said they found no manufacturer's defect, and my insurance would not cover it as glass. I paid for repair out of pocket.
