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.

    I have a 2007 murano that I have had a problem since it was under 36K. It has a drone in the motor when under a load at approx. 1500rpm and 40mph. You can feel a slight vibration in the drives compartment and in the pedals. I have been to 3 dealerships and it is currently at the forth for repairs. I have been told to replace the tires, exhaust and trans. fluid. nothing has fixed the problem and I have been told the the motor mounts are more than likely the problem but it is a $1500.00 guess. I do not feel that a vehicle of this price (fully loaded) should be having a problem like this with such low mileage.

    I've had the exact same problems as everyone else and I'm sure they are aware of the problem but my question is, why haven't they did a recall on these things? I love my Murano but after this I will never purchase another one new or used. I love Nissians period but next I think I'll try Honda!

    I had a "knocking noise' when accelerating. My mechanic is working on it now and says 2 mounts are damaged. They quoted over $700.

    Every motor mount cracked at the same time, unheard of. Car now stalls. Car would jerk and now I realized the motor was constantly moving. Now the car stalls and idles..runs rough. The car will probabably never be the same. What's really bad about it..The Nissan service department can't find the problem. So we have to pay $206.00 for you to tell us there isn't a problem, yet, the car continues to run rough and tries to cut off. This is a major safety issue. A car idling can cause a terrible crash which could result in injuries and/or death of owner and/or others.
