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.

Failure Date: 12/15/2014

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.

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.

I have noticed on numerous occasions this summer, a crackling sound in lower portion of the front windshield. I actually remember hearing it last summer but it is now more audible. The warm weather must be a factor. I have also experienced problems with my keyless fob, it does not always work and my ignition an rear lift gate sometimes will operate even when the fob is within 3 feet. This has occurred several times over the past 2 months. I took it to Nissan and they could not find the problem. I purchased the car brand new in Aug. 2011. No accidents.

The issue with my Nissan Murano is the lock actuator beginning to go out. It started in may when the key fod began not working. We started having to unlock the vehicle with the key and then unlock the other doors with the button on the door. This was fine until the lock on the door began to fail. It works occasionally but not all the time. This is my wife's car and we have one child and another on the way, and she will be using this vehicle to transport two kids while I'm at work. It's a safety issue because during inclement weather my wife can't put our baby on the ground to unlock all the doors after the actuator completely fails. Not only for that reason is it a safety hazard but just because a fire hasn't occurred yet because of this electrical issue doesn't mean that one will not happen. As a father this is something I have to be concerned with.
