I have a 2016 Murano and this problem has been intermittently present since buying the car. Told the Nissan dealer about this, and after looking at me like I had three heads, they looked at the car, and have run "diagnostics" but cannot seem to figure out the problem. Here's a simple scenario: My driveway has a moderate incline at the top where it meets the town road. I go to turn out of the driveway, and while turning out, I hit the gas. About half of the time I get the desired result, i.e., I accelerate onto the road and am on my way. The other times my car starts the acceleration, and then - nothing. I push the gas down and I do not get any additional power, just the engine noise staying at one level. I have to completely let off the gas and slowly push down to get back to a normal drive.(I do not have a foot on the brake and gas at the same time when leaving the driveway, either). If I was heading straight ahead, it would not do this. It only occurs when I am simultaneously turning and accelerating quickly. It's not just on inclines, either, as it also happens when turning on a flat road surface. While it does not happen 100% of the time, it is bothersome and I would welcome any ideas/suggestions that people might have. Thank you in advance!
