the air intake tube kept coming loose- especially after oil changes. Extremely dangerous because when I would go from a stop to pulling out into traffic, the Murano would lurch forward a bit and just keep stopping and starting and barely moving. Fortunately it was recalled and got it fixed for free.

Vehicle was stalling at stops and during initial acceleration. Checked the air intake tube and it was detached. Yes after an oil change at a quick stop place. Now I check before leaving theses shops. Remember oil change guys are not mechanics they don't double check anything. Back to the problem, It was fixed by just reconnecting the tube.
