Nissan Murano Problems

Engine -- Verified

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.

Miscellaneous -- Verified

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.

Engine -- Verified

A faulty fuel damper can produce a ticking noise, which can be heard inside the cabin when the engine is idling. Replacement of the failed dampener should correct this problem.

Engine -- Verified

Various drivability problems may be caused by the air intake tube attached to the air cleaner box coming loose. Nissan has recalled 2003-2007 models for this concern. For more information on this recall please click here»

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.

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The attaching transmission gear selector shaft to the control valve lever may not have been adequately tightened. This could result in the transmission not actually being in the gear indicated by the selector lever. In addition, the transmission display in the instrument panel may be incorrect. If the gear displayed is different from the gear engaged, this could result in unexpected vehicle movement and a crash. Dealers will check the affected nut in the transmission shift lever linkage and tighten if as necessary. The Nissan recall number is R3009.

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.

Nissan Murano Reviews

I bought the car new. I luckily bought the extended warranty and had to use it. The transmission went out but it was covered by 100,000 mile warranty. I love the car and figure that any car you buy has some problems. I did not like the idea that I was NEVER able to get the mpg they advertise. They said it was due to the way I drive. I KNOW that was not true because I was very careful about my driving because I wanted to get good mpg. All this said, it is a very reliable, good looking, sturdy, comfortable car. I bought the LE and all the amenities are great!

I have had a 2012 Nissan murano now for approx 1 year now.Over all I am very pleased with the vehicle, the few small issues I have are;
1. The high beam headlighting could be better ( the light needs to burn further up the road ) also a lack of genuine or aftermarket nudge bars to mount spotlights.
2. The amount of fuel consumption , approx 12 ltrs per 100km,
this figure is heavily influenced by how well the vehicle goes ( excellent engine )& I have a heavy foot, About the best economy on open road with cruise control on is approx. 9 ltrs per 100 km.

2007-have it brand new and kept up with maint.scd and the car has been very dependable so far....

Brought Nissan from Team Nissan in Manchester. Sold me a vehicle that has major water damage on the floor. I've only had the vehicle for 4 mths. and within the first four weeks notice an awful odor and came to the conclusion that it smelt like MOLD. It took me this long to finally realize that the passenger and driver's floor was wet. Just had someone look at it and it turns out that it had a defective back light and with all the rain it has been leaking from the wheel well to the front floors. Had a car fax done on it before I bought it and nothing was said about a leak problem. Team Nissan sold me a defective vehicle and I would not trust doing business with them again. I will have to replace all the rugs and back light.
