Nissan Murano Damaged Seat Adjuster Assembly May Cause Noise/Rocking Movement
Nissan Murano Problem
Average Mileage: 68,053 mi (20,000 mi - 140,000 mi)
Both sides of the drivers side seat rocks back and forth when braking or speeding up. I think the gears in the seat are worn out. Went into Nissan and was quoted $1500 to fix, I have been looking online and see DIY with new gears but from looking at my Murano I do not think they have the parts for 2009. If they do it "should" take 2 hours to fix and $130 for the parts. Just upset that everyone is having this problem and Nissan will not order a recall and fix the problem.
seat off track. nissan wants 1500.00 to fix a KNOWN problem since 05! i thought nissan prided itself on consumer satisfaction. hmmmm guess not so much eh?

My seat moves a little when I hit the breaks. I thought maybe it was a bolt that needed to be tightened. Now I know that's not the case. Just one more thing I need to look forward to with this vehicle. I will never buy another nissan for as long as I live. I have had so many problems.

Seat will not move forward or back. It tries but acts like something is stuck in one of the rails.....nothing there.

Seat suddenly stopped moving forward on one side only. There is nothing in the rail, but it's like the right side is stuck. Dealer wants $1500 to fix it.

Fell into a pot hole and seat broke, went to the dealer and they told me the seat box was broken and that it was going to cost $1,000 to fix it. Took it to a collision repair shop and they charged me under $100.00 to fix the problem. Extremely disappointed with Nissan!!!!

rocks like a rocking chair

The left rear anchor apparently broke as the driver seat can rock left to right.
I found the anchor broke.
