Nissan will be forced to recall 140,000 Murano SUVs from the 2003-2005 model years. The alternator may fail, after which "the engine would go into a condition that limits the vehicle's speed and stop running". That condition is more commonly known as a "dead battery". Obviously, anything that causes the engine to stop can cause a crash and thus is considered to be a safety-related defect, so the vehicles will be brought in for service starting on August 3rd. In the meantime, if you own a Murano, wear comfortable walking shoes, and call Nissan at 800-647-7261 if you have any questions (such as "is it true that the Murano is only sold in that funky orange color?", or "what is the proper plural form of 'Murano'?").
