2009 Nissan Murano ProblemsFailed head Gaskets
During a routine oil change and maintenance, Midway Nissan told me the head gasket was leaking and told me the price would be over $3000.

2009 Nissan Murano RecallsNissan Recalls Certain 2008–2010 Vehicles for Tire Pressure Monitoring System Sensor Issue
Nissan is recalling certain 2008–2010 model year vehicles in areas of the country with heavy concentrations of road salt usage. The fastener used to secure the sensor of the tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) may corrode and crack. If this occurs, the fastener may detach from the sensor and the TPMS light will illuminate. Dealers will replace the fastener with a more robust fastener.
This recall affects certain vehicles equipped Occupant Classification System (OCS) control units manufactured by Continental Automotive Systems. A varistor in the OCS control unit may have been manufactured out of specification. Under certain conditions, this could interupt the signal between the OCS and the air bag control unit (ACU), causing the passenger air bag to be suppressed in an accident. If the air bag does not deploy when needed in a crash, the risk of injury is increased. Dealers will test the signal between the OCS and ACU with a special tool to verify proper function. The seat cushion containing the OCS hardware will be replaced as necessary. The recall began November 4, 2008.
The air bag control unit (ACU) may not deploy the passenger side air bag in a collision if the battery voltage is too low. This may cause injury or death in a collision. Dealers will reprogram the ACU. The Nissan recall number is P8201. The recall began on February 19, 2008.
