2004 Nissan Murano Problems

Engine -- Verified

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.

Miscellaneous -- Verified

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.

Engine -- Verified

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.

Engine -- Verified

Various drivability problems may be caused by the air intake tube attached to the air cleaner box coming loose. Nissan has recalled 2003-2007 models for this concern. For more information on this recall please click here»

Body, Interior & Misc., March 20, 2006

RepairPal Expert Overview:

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.

Electrical & Lights, August 1, 2005

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The alternator could fail due to a broken wire inside. If this occurs, the charging system warning light will illuminate and the battery will begin to discharge. If driven in this condition, after a short time the engine will go into a "fail safe" condition, which will limit vehicle speed. Continued operation will cause the engine to stop running, which could result in a crash. Dealers will inspect and replace the alternator as required with a revised design.

2004 Nissan Murano Reviews

Over all a good car, Nissan and their Dealers are not to be trusted, 150k and no "major issues" here some past problems, Both wheel hubs went @80K, Replaced Radio/CD unit, poor desgin Cigarette lighter replaced twice, new brakes every 28k

I have had things go wrong with this car that I have never seen before. It is not reliable. As it gets old, things begin to fail or break.

Bought it because the comfortable seats, leg room in rear for my tall boys, and plenty of space in cargo area for beach chairs, coolers, sports equip, and such. Looks nice too. Only minor issues until local lube center put wrong tranny fluid and had to replace tranny. Fuel door wouldn't open and paid to fix that, not under warranty? Have the SE with leather seats, cheap leather. I have four tears, two on the exterior side of the front seats and two at the seam of the rear driver seat. Can't explain them. Power steering fluid started leaking, pressure hose replacement cost $550. Ride just recently became really, I mean really rough this year. Replaced front struts and rear shocks, no change. Still rougher than my husband's '98 Dodge P/U. I won't be buying another one.
