Nissan Murano Problems

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.

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.

Faulty Fuel Damper May Cause Ticking Noise

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.

Brakes Do Not Stop Effectively

The anti-lock brake system actuator may have a damaged o-ring that may result in a lack of brake fluid pressure control. This can result in extended stopping distances when braking, or erratic operation of the anti-lock brake system or vehicle dynamic control system. Dealers will inspect and replace the anti-lock brake system actuator as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.

Anti-lock Brake System Malfunctions Causing Loss Of Vehicle Stability

The anti-lock braking system actuators may have contamination inside the solenoid valves, causing malfunction of the system. Dealers will inspect and replace the actuator as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.

Tire Pressure Monitor System Not Activated

During vehicle assembly, the tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) was not activated. This could result in the vehicle being operated with underinflated tires, increasing the risk of tire failure and a possible crash. Dealers will activate the TPMS on the affected vehicles before they are sold.
