2006 Nissan Murano Problems

Drivers side sun visor won't stay up

The driver's side sun visor will not stay up when in use. Instead, it falls down going over the tiniest of bumps, suddenly obscuring the driver's view of the road. This is extremely dangerous & I would like to know what Nissan is going to do to fix it.

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.

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.

2006 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.

Steering Lock May be Active With Key Off but Transmission Not Being in Park

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 

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.
