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.

Transmission slips or shifts hard into gears. Transmission has also just stopped working in the middle of traffic. Gets worse the warmer it is. Slower speeds have the hard shifting and higher speeds it often wont shift to the next higher gear.

Murano 6-cyl

  • 66,703 miles
2011 Nissan Murano with 66,000 miles failed while driving in freeway traffic, in a construction zone, on 2/12/2015. The model is equipped with continuously variable transmission (cvt). Nissan written powertrain coverage period on 2011 models is "60 months or 60,000 miles, whichever comes first." Nissan notified us, the owners of the Murano, that the parts and labor were not covered by warranty. Nissan Consumer Affairs did not help. Nissan vice president total customer satisfaction, [xxx], previously issued a continuously variable transmission (cvt) warranty extension for model years 2003-2010 which covered repairs, replacement, and related towing expenses. Since the 2011 model is equipped with cvt (same transmission as 2003-2010 models covered by extended warranty), it needs to be covered under the warranty extension. Nissan corporation knew of the cvt problem, which was the reason for the cvt warranty extension between the years of 2007 and 2010. The company has not adequately modified the part and has not adequately modified the warranty to meet the needs of the consumer. The cvt failure put our safety in jeopardy, caused us to miss work, and cost nearly $4,000, which put us into severe financial duress. With Nissan\'s awareness of the Nissan cvt failure problems, the cvt should have been remedied before the point we bought the vehicle or should have, at least, been covered by warranty. We were never asked if we wanted our old transmission back and were never given the serial numbers. When we called and inquired, we were told that it had been shipped "back to Nissan" within 5 business days and that there was no way we could get it back or call to get the identifying information. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

Murano 6-cyl

  • 9,000 miles
At low speeds on slight incline will not accelerate with input to gas pedal rpms will increase vehicle will not respond then suddenly drive train will respond and engage (a slipping action) vehicle will suddenly launch forward with a slight bang and bucking of vehicle. Dealer has had vehicle checked for problem approx 5-6 times could not duplicate issue. BBB complaint in process of being filed. Dealer and manufacturer no help with issue. Formal complaint filed with dealership, no response @ present. Vehicle is dangerous when not responding and confusing control of vehicle when it does respond to throttle input.
