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.

Ticking Noise From Engine Area Due to Faulty Fuel Damper

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.

Brake Fluid Leaks

Brake fluid may leak from the anti-lock brake actuator pump onto an internal circuit board. This can cause a fire hazard. Dealers will inspect the ABS actuator and replace it as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.

Passenger Frontal Air Bag Does Not Deploy In A Crash

The occupant classification system may not appropriately detect an occupant in the passenger front seat, and as a result may not power the passenger frontal air bag for deployment in an accident. Dealers will reprogram the air bag control unit and occupant classification system electronic control unit in some vehicles, replacing the occupant classification system electronic control unit additionally in other vehicles free of charge to resolve the concern.

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.

Nissan Murano Reviews

This is actually the worst vehicle I've ever owned. I purchased it in 2011 and it was a 2006. I purchased it from a dealer (Kelly Nissan in Beverly Ma) and they said the vehicle was pre-certified. Initially the warranty they offered was atrocious so I had to pay extra to get a warranty of 80k miles. Interestingly enough the entire exhaust fell off about 2 years of owning it, right after 60...

I've been locked out x3 and one time I had to wait 2 hrs for a tow truck to ...
Had this 2006 only a short period of time and it already required 2,000$ worth of work. Power steering went out, bushings were gone, needs brakes, AWD light stays on, have a feeling this is a lemon, only 50,000 miles on it. Wouldn't buy again.
