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.

2012 Nissan Murano Owner Comments

I was changing lanes as I was approaching a city street intersection at about 10 mph and began applying the brakes to stop. I noticed that I was having to push much harder on the brakes to slow the car and then noticed that the engine was racing at a high RPM. I was able to come to a stop and then put the transmission in neutral. At that point with my foot still on the brake and the transmission in neutral, the engine racing stopped and fell back to idle. I was then able to proceed as normal although I was somewhat shaken by the incident. Nothing like this has occurred since. I did have the car evauated by my Nissan dealership but nothing wrong was found.
