Default jerking on acceleration

Recently, my 06 murano have this jerking, delay in acceleration after at stop. It happens more when going up on a slope but not a steep one. You can feel the hesitation but eventually accelerates. Brought it in to a dealer but nothing showed on computer and said as long as the tach moves - its okay. Any suggestions or input?

Am I the only one having this problem with my murano? I've brought it back and there is a significant hesitation. The tech felt it but mentioned again that there was no error with the computer and the tach was moving. I dont understand. I've just spent 600 dollars to get the 49000km service and still the hesitation continues and the dealer cannot do anything about it and keeps to mention to come back when it happens again. Whats the point of bringing the vehicle back when you know they'll say the same thing over and over again - cannot find anything wrong - BS.

maybe u need to just hit the gas harder. if u are going up a slope it willl need to build the power to get up the slope, especially from a stop. try hitting the gas harder and see if that changes anything

Default jerking or lag on aceleration

I have a 2003 murano and I have complained to the dealer about this problem for years. it's dangerous. With my car the problem shows up after stop and go driving or prolonged idleing. i push the acelerator down and the car seems to lag in response to the acelerator input. The delaer at first told me it was the air mass meter then the trottle body which was replaced. none of this helped. Then i went online to a help site and a Nissan tech told me to have the trottle potentiometer and the trottle position motor calibrated . i had this done. nissan now tells me that isn't the problem and i now need to replace a 2300 dollar part in the transmission. I don't believe anything my local nissan dealer( Boulder Colorado) says. They have stalled until the car is out of warranty. There should be a saftey recall on this. Anyone else run into this problem?
