  1. 2005 Nissan Murano ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING NHTSA Campaign #09V169000

    • Date Announced: MAY 19, 2009
    • Vehicles Affected: 362,891

    Summary: Nissan is recalling 362,891 MY 2003-2007 Murano vehicles. The intake air ducts, which are connected to the intermediate resonator in the air intake system of the engine, may separate from the resonator with engine movement. This separation occurs due to the premature aging of the material used in the intake air ducts which causes excessive shrinking.

    Consequence: Engine may stall increasing the risk of a crash.

    Actions: Dealers will inspect and replace/repair the appropriate components free of charge. The recall began on September 24, 2009. Owners may contact Nissan at 1-800-647-7261. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #09V169000 »

    • Vehicles Affected: 67,014

    Summary: Certain sport utility vehicles fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard no. 114, "theft protection."
