The passenger airbag deactivates itself randomly while a passenger is seated and belted in. This continues even while the car is moving. The electrical computer system also intermittently malfunctions and won't follow the touch screen's commands or communicate with paired cell phones. This has been reported multiple times both to the dealership and to Nissan directly. The dealership has tried multiple times to diagnose the problem and failed every time. They no won longer return our calls. We have 3 videos spread over many months that prove the problem is occurring, but the dealership no longer responds, and neither does Nissan. These malfunctions occur as soon as the car is started at rest and continues while in motion at all speeds including highway travel and city streets. I would like the dot and the hsa to give me some way to submit the videos that show this intermittent problem is occurring, and to force Nissan to fix this or refund our money before it gets me killed.

While driving my kids to school this morning, I lost all acceleration in the middle of a busy road unable to move, drive anything. I turned the car on and off to try to move the car from the middle of the road, I could only reverse. When in drive I its as if it were in neutral. The battery, brake light and check engine light all came on at once. They were not on prior to this happening. Clearly this is some sort of malfunction with in Nissan. I read multiple people having the same issues as me and I plan to make this known. If I had been on the highway when this happened with my kids in the car we would all be dead this is a serious issues and it needs to be addressed clearly there is some sort of and issues where Nissan has a recall or something.

Faulty wire on the altenator causing the brake and battery light to come on and lost power and car died.

Recall on engine resonator iss and airduct intake. Engine stalling on highway. Engine shakes sometimes.
Even though my car is not registered in the current "campaign" (Nissan's euphemism for a recall) nonetheless, my airbag light on the dash is flashing, indicating that the airbag system may be faulty. Nissan refuses to fix it without a full diagnostic going over (about $100 fee) and does not seem to care that a passenger in my car could get killed if the airbag fails to deploy. My car is a 2009 Murano with only 59,000 miles on it.
Door lock issue - all four door lock actuators do not function, the doors will not lock when going over 15 miles an hour (a safety feature), if the door is locked manually, it will not unlock when the engine is shut off. Could be hazardous if needing to leave the car quickly.
Car randomly shuts off while in motion at various times while on highway and city streets. Most recent occurrence we were attempting to make a left turn and car shut off and rolled into ditch while oncoming traffic was approaching.

My front driver door and rear passenger door do not lock or unlock when I press the buttons on my key. This is a safety issue because I do not want someome breaking into my car and stealing anything. This issue is an expensive one to fix and I know a few people who have had the same problem. Ive been told its the actuator to the ppwer locks. Once one goes then they all start going. We should not have to pay for this out of pocket because this is a safety issue. Nissan should take care of this problem free of charge with no questions asked. This happens when my vehicle is in park. The power lock does not lock or unlock the front driver side or the rear right passenger door at all. I have to open the doors just to manually unlock another door.

I'm unable to lock/unlock any doors using the lock/unlock buttons in the car. They only lock/unlock manually. The key manually locks/unlocks the driver door only. Fob doesn't work for any locks, and it's a new one.
Within a period of less than a month, all 4 of the electronic door locks on all 4 doors of my Nissan Murano s have failed. Initially, the problem was isolated to just 1 or 2 doors, and sometimes it would vary as to whether the door would lock or unlock when either pressing the remote entry key fob or using the interior door unlock button. Now, no door will lock/unlock at all. They can only be manually unlocked by pressing the rocker switch at the door. While driving the car, I am unable to securely lock all 4 doors. When I exit the vehicle, and manually lock the doors, upon returning, I am unable to unlock the doors without first using the key in the drivers door (the only 1 with a key lock), and then entering the vehicle, and manually unlocking the other 3 doors. This is a safety hazard with small children, as I can not leave them in the parking lot by themselves for me to enter the vehicle to get their door unlocked.
