Nissan Murano: Precautions when starting and driving / Rapid air pressure loss

Nissan Murano 2015-2024 Owners Manual / Starting and driving / Precautions when starting and driving / Rapid air pressure loss

Rapid air pressure loss or a “blow-out” can occur if the tire is punctured or is damaged due to hitting a curb or pothole. Rapid air pressure loss can also be caused by driving on under-inflated tires.

Rapid air pressure loss can affect the handling and stability of the vehicle, especially at highway speeds.

Help prevent rapid air pressure loss by maintaining the correct air pressure and visually inspecting the tires for wear and damage. For additional information, refer to “Wheels and tires” in the “Do-it-yourself” section of this manual. If a tire rapidly loses air pressure or “blows-out” while driving, maintain control of the vehicle by following the procedure below. Please note that this procedure is only a general guide. The vehicle must be driven as appropriate based on the conditions of the vehicle, road and traffic.

WARNING

If there is a sudden loss of tire air pressure, the vehicle will generally move or pull in the direction of the flat tire. In this situation, losing control of the vehicle may cause a collision and result in personal injury.

  • To help avoid loss of control:
  • Do not rapidly apply the brakes.
  • Do not rapidly release the accelerator pedal.
  • Donot rapidly turn the steering wheel.
  1.  Remain calm and do not overreact.
  2. Maintain a firm grip on the steering wheel with both hands and try to hold a straight course.
  3. When appropriate, slowly release the accelerator pedal to gradually slow the vehicle.
  4. Gradually steer the vehicle to a safe location off the road and away from traffic if possible.
  5. Lightly apply the brake pedal to gradually stop the vehicle.
  6. Turn on the hazard warning flashers and contact a roadside emergency service to change the tire. For additional information, refer to “Changing a flat tire” in the “In case of emergency” section of this manual.
