2003 Nissan Murano Problems

Failing Engine Mounts Will Cause Thumping in Floor

A thumping heard and felt in the floor is often caused by failing engine mounts. A failing mount allows too much movement of the engine, and will require replacement.

Damaged Seat Adjuster Assembly May Cause Noise/Rocking Movement

A damaged or broken seat adjuster assembly on the seat bottom can cause the seat to rock back and forth and possibly squeak. It can also cause the seat to not adjust forward or backward, or up and down.

Ticking Noise From Engine Area Due to Faulty Fuel Damper

A faulty fuel damper can produce a ticking noise, which can be heard inside the cabin when the engine is idling. Replacement of the failed dampener should correct this problem.

2003 Nissan Murano Recalls

Nissan Recalls 2003–2007 Muranos Due to Defective Intake Air Ducts

Nissan is recalling 2003–2007 Murano models because the intake air ducts may separate from the resonator with engine movement. This may cause the engine to stall, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect and repair/replace the components free of charge.

The Rear Outboard Seat Belt May Be Damaged in the Event of a Crash

In certain types of frontal crashes, the belt portion of the rear outboard seat belt may contact the rear seat back hinge. The belt can be cut by the sharp edge of the hinge. If the belt were to completely separate, it can increase the risk of injury to the seat occupant. Dealers will install protectors over the affected belt portion of the rear belts.

Potentail Fuel Tank Leak from Fuel Tank

Road debris, when run over by the front tires, can be projected in the direction of the fuel tank. If struck, the fuel tank could be damaged, possibly resulting in a fuel leak. A fuel leak always increases the risk of a fire. Dealers will install a protector in front of the fuel tank to correct this concern.
