2005 Nissan Murano Problems
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.
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.
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.

2005 Nissan Murano Recalls
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.
On certain sport utility vehicles the steering may become locked with the key in the off position but not in park. If the key is turned to off with the transmission not in park the wheel may lock when turned to the right. Dealer will inspect and replace lock assembly free of charge. The Nissan recall # is R0614
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.

My wife and I bought a 2005 Nissan Murano S FWD after renting one for a trip to the Florida Keys. The Murano is very comfortable front and rear, offers plenty of utility and flexibility, and we've been averaging 19 mpg since purchase. It does have a rather stiff ride quality, so if you want to feel like you're gliding on a cloud this is not the right car for you. Also, our biggest complaint abo...
