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.

2005 Nissan Murano Reviews

we buyng murano 2005.very good.nice shape.my wife she loved.im recommended.all my friend loved my car.

We LOVE this car - the favorite one owned after driving for 30 years. Have two other friends who feel the same. Have 77k on the car so far and have done nothing but scheduled maintence plus front wheel bearings (at 75k) and seat frame repair. The seat frame is a bad design (we took it to a body shop to get the welds fixed instead of paying $1200). The wheel bearings failure were from water intrusion and no way to repack them (we live in wet / rainy Seattle).

Refer to the 2005 Murano as the nicest piece of crap I have owned. There is sooo much potential that is clouded by all of the strange issues. I have 79K miles on it now and have run into very strange issues with the car.
- Power steering hose broke $550 repair
- Both front hubs went bad (severe rubbing/scraping noise) $350/ea repair
- Driver side visor would not stay up (very dangerous when it drops down blocking view $350 to replace
- A/C system randomly stops working, blower stops, then randomly starts after few minutes
- Air intake "pops off" causing insane engine noise. This is after the "recall fix".
- engine make rattling noise at acceleration from stop and maintaining speed at 20mph.

When all is working, I love the acceleration, looks, leg room, and AWD.

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 about our Murano is the number of squeaks, rattles and buzzes from the interior trim. Otherwise, this vehicle has served us extremely well. If you don't find the car to be ugly (many people do, but we don't -- depending on the angle at which it's viewed), you don't need a third-row seat (one isn't offered on the Murano) and you want to feel the road from the driver's seat, I strongly recommend the Murano for people wanting a crossover SUV.
