Failure Date: 10/13/2015

My 2004 Murano had a lot of stalling and stopping, problems with accelerating the car. It stop on multiple occasions. Fluid leaking, from engine and fuel tank, and steering column. Power steering is rigid,and locks, and car stops when turning. The windows went up and down uncontrollable. Power control panel , did not function. Nissan insisted that vehicle is old. I think the car is possessed. All of theses things occurred while I was in motion driving the car on highway, the roads, stationery, and especially turning, and trying to accelerate the car, and it would then completely turn off, Nissan refuses to acknowledge any thing is wrong. They stated what do you expect after buying a car this old. I just want to make sure my car is safe by your standards not theirs. After receiving my car from Nissan it was even worse, I brought the same issues to them after paying $5200 of what they said were repairs. Thanks.

While driving the automobile made a low buzzing sound and immediately stopped moving. All power was lost. I was not able to steer the automobile, the dashboard lights and radio still on and working. I engaged the accelerator once and the auto accelerated and all power was lost again, this time completely. I had it towed to my regular Nissan dealership for diagnosis and repair. Diagnosis: battery needs to be replaced. The battery was replaced and I drove the car home and to work the next day. While on my way from work, the exact problem occurred again. I had it towed to autonation Nissan again and as I type this complaint the dealership is trying to arrive at the proper diagnosis. I am all of a sudden in fear for my life, had I been on the expressway (I-95, sr-826, FL turnpike, etc. I could have been killed with these two sudden stops if I had been rear-ended. I am the only driver of this automobile. It is in otherwise excellent condition. I have never had this problem before. Only constant issues with "tire sensors" even though I have had them replaced.

I was driving out of my driveway, when the car stalled and hesitated. I saw the battery light and the brake light come on, so I drove the car slowly down the street in front of my apartment, and parked it there. I later read that this was common on Nissan Muranos, model years 2003 through 2007, and a recall campaign, 05v319000 was started.

I am the original owner of my 5 year old car. It has low mileage and has been regularly maintained. My fuel gauge and mile range indicator are no longer accurate or in sync. They both fluctuate erratically. I can leave my driveway and go to the end of my street (9 houses) and lose 20 miles according to the indicator. On the other hand, I have driven 125 miles and end up with more gas than when I started. It has been taken to the dealership 3x where they have changed sensors etc. To fix this. I contacted Nissan America who had one of their engineers contact the dealership. Nissan's final decision is that it is a characteristic of the car and they would do nothing more. I have many concerns about this decision. It isn't easy estimating what I have in my tank when both gauges are incorrect. It is stressful and dangerous especially when taking longer trips. I am a single woman and am in my car, driving alone, most of the time. What if I am in the middle of traffic and because of the misreadings, I run out of gas? what does this do to the re-sale value of my $35,000. 00 car? if this is a characteristic of my car, why wasn't I told about it when I bought it? this is more of a flaw than a characteristic. How many other Nissan owners out there with this same problem? I find Nissan"s final decision unacceptable and that is why I am contacting you. I'd like to thank you in advance for your time and consideration concerning this matter.

We purchased a 2014 missan Murano sl awd in Dec 2104, with the navigation package ($2100) which included the blind spot warning system. When lights are in the "auto" position, a vehicle comes up from behind, either side, the yellow/orange warning light comes on, just the way it should. However, when you turn the head lights on to "manual" position, such as when it is raining, the blind spot warning indicator light does not come on enough to catch your attention, it is just a flicker, you would have to take your eyes off the road to see it. It is like there is no warning at all. We have called Nissan and were told that, "it performs as designed" I said then you have a design flaw and it needs to be corrected, because we are not getting a warning the same way when the light are in the "auto" position. Nissan position is that there is nothing they are going to do about it.

We purchased a new Nissan 2014 Murano. When we picked up the vehicle, the rear view camera was distorted and fuzzy. We were told to adjust the settings after we got the new car. We were unable to do that so we took it back to the dealership where we purchased the car (autobarn Nissan evanston) and it was also unable to fix the problem. I contacted Nissan and was told all 2014 Nissan Murano's had the same camera and all worked the same way and Nissan did not intend to fix the problem. We have been to two dealerships which both acknowledged the installed camera is not functioning properly. This creates a hazard because it is difficult to see what is behind the car when backing up due to the distortion. This is a known Nissan defect but it cannot figure out how to fix its defect. We have been trying to get this repaired since the date we purchased it in December with about 100 miles on the vehicle.

Dear sir or madam, in 2009 I bought new Nissan Murano sl 2009 from mossy Nissan dealership in houston, texas. To finance my purchase, I also bought extended car warranty for 6 years total (to cover another 3 years beyond 3 years of factory warranty). This extended warranty (Nissan security+ plus gold preferred package with >2,000 parts being protected) was advertised as a best available option on the market. All these years since my purchase I took very good care of my car, records are available at mossy Nissan. On 06nov2014 mossy Nissan service center diagnosed internal device failure responsible for airbags deploy and informed me that, to their surprise, this module is not covered by my current warranty. This part is listed as a cushion & adjuster module, part # 873a2-1av2a. Reading from the Nissan tool scanner: ******* b1018 OCS sensor unit failure******** estimated costs for replacement were approximated at 3,500$ out of pocket. I have contacted north America Nissan (1-800-nissan1) and case # 16484480 was filed for investigations. North America Nissan has contacted me back on 17nov2014 and informed me that they cannot offer any help or assistance regarding replacement. Na Nissan also refused to finance amount of 3,500$ over 6-12 months which I agreed to pay in monthly payments. Nissan security+ plus gold preferred package has >2,000 parts being protected including those for fun and entertainment (like radio, cd player, even antenna etc. ) but not for the module responsible for life-saving airbags deployment. I have found this unacceptable. The false advertisement of the package is deceptive stating “ultimate in peace of mind protection”…not for essential safety parts though… can you help? can you advise on next reasonable steps? thank you in advance, dmitri davydov davydov_fam@yahoo. Com cell: 713-875-0777.

The door locks work intermittently. I thought the doors were locked and when I come back they are unlocked. I checked it a few times and the lock moves only half-way leaving the door(s) unlocked intermittently. It looks like it's a voltage/electric problem since it's intermittent. I had all the fusses checked at the Nissan dealership and it didn't fix the problem. I'm seeing complaints all over the web regarding this problem with actuators in Nissan vehicles.

I had a check engine light and an airbag light appear on my dash. While driving on the beltway the abs light came on and my car slowed down and wouldn't tee pond to the gas pedal. After about 2 minutes it kicked back in so I took it to get a diagnostic from a Nissan dealer the next morning. They told me everything was fine according to the computer there were a lot of codes that popped up but they told me they weren't happening anymore. I asked of they checked all of the wires they told me yes. So I took my vehicle and later that night while driving back from lunch break the abs light came on again and the Murano slowed down as before only this time it cut completely off. It only held a jump for about 5 blocks before it cut off again. I had it towed back to the dealer the next morning and they told me they can't check anything unless I purchase a new battery so I bought a new battery and they put it in and told me everything was fine again it just needed a new battery. They told me everything was reading fine but in my opinion that was because it was feeding off the juice of a new battery. About 2 hours after leaving the dealer the same thing happen again with a new battery while I was driving. The abs light came on the car slowed down this time the meters went crazy then it cut off. Only by the grace of god that no one was injured with my car cutting off while I'm driving. I called the dealer and they were not willing to do anything different and they told me my VIN number is not under a recall. I called Nissan consumer affairs after a week of waiting and unreturned calls I finally talked to a regional manager from tennessee by the name of cleo only because I got transferred to him and all he told me was Nissan will not help you out financially. He didn't discuss the issue or offer solutions and showed no concern for safety only money even though I never asked for it.
