My car was running sluggish and low power when turned on lights, when tested battery it was fine but voltage low so I guess its not charging battery. Doesnt start alot of times. Engine runs hot quick, put new battery did same and one day the battery and brake light stayed on and then while driving it just stopped like I was giving it gas but car wasnt moving. Now it wont start at all. There may be a tiny oil leak but dont know from where and it drives rough but they say my shocks and struts and suspension and everything is ok.

Took vehicle in for repairs for oil leaks, lights, trunk release, vehicle running like a truck, a/c, radio,transmission and camera display in car. Was told trunk release , motor, and transmission problems, and lighting couldn't be duplicated. The same day I picked up my vehicle turn vehicle off close the drivers door and head and rear lights shut off, close my trunk and again head and rear lights went off. Took vehicle to another dealer and showed the service advisor my concerns informed me a dianogstic test would cost $270 if couldn't find anything wrong, and I couldn't be take home because it was over 10 miles, and advisor suggested taking car closer to where I lived. Showed him and told him my concerns: foot pedal switch works sometimes, seat operates sometime, the smell from exhaust has a very bad smell, a/c works sometime while driving and doesn't blow cold at all while idol, and sun visor keep falling down lower causing you to not see. .

The oil pan is so corroded that the oil bleeds through the bottom of the oil pan. There is an enamel or powder type coating on the oil pan that is gone. It's only 7 years old and should not happen with the vehicle being as new as it is. Oil pan should be a sturdy part of your car as it on the bottom of the engine and holds critical fluids. This type of leak could be a fire safety issue.

There has been oil leaking from my oil tank for over a year. I went to a shop and they told me it is the o-ring or seal on the oil tank and that they tend to go on this model car. It is a $400 fix. If this is common in the Muranos it should be a recall, we shouldn't have to responsible for the cost.

The car was taken to the Nissan dealership approximately 4 months ago and I was notified of the transfer case leaking and was quoted at least $3,000 to fix it. I was told it will eventually go and will affect my transmission but to stay on top of my oil changes and fluids to help prevent the system from failing. At my next oil change I asked if the system was checked and I was told "everything lookes good. " about a week ago (was not due yet for a oil change) my car would jolt into reverse and would be hesitant to go and same thing with driving forward. The car is stuck in awd, transmission clicks when driving, and jolting occurs driving forward and reversing. Apparently this is a common problem with the transfer case failing in this type of car.

Nissan Murano 96" began leaking engine oil, went in to fix under a Nissan warranty. Leak was not fixed and the power steering began to leak. Service manager at dealership, autobarn Nissan, don mekoola told me these engines begin leaking at this point and the dealership would not even offer enough on a trade to wholesale the Murano. That tells you all you need to know. Nissan USA will do nothing and the dealer will do nothing. I had no idea the car was this bad a shape and continued driving it. Now I follow don's advice and top off both engine oil and power steering fluid every week. Not the best answer, but I have no choice.

My Nissan Murano was a brand new 2003 it is now 8 years old with 46015 miles. The Nissan service department in nh cared for my vehicle regularly; my first problem occurred when the engine started sending out black smoke, I fought for Nissan to take responsibility for what was happening to my vehicle, they did; it took six to eight weeks to get the oil smell flushed out of the air conditioner. I understand wear and tear but, major engine faults happening so soon; Nissan claims being the top vehicle manufactures. One of the many reasons I bought their brand. I did everything they said to keep my vehicle functioning; then it happened again; the rear powertrain reached its end, and oil leaking in the engine, the piston ball bearings is broken; and now the oil is leaking out. The average miles driven per year is 12000; my vehicle average 1500-miles yearly. I cannot nor will I battle over the 60 months/100,000 miles warranty contract; I am appealing to Nissan corporation saying, look and see in my case my vehicles? problems are unique; see the oddness of an engine with only 46015 miles having such major problems. See my maintenance records, it was not due to neglect, look at the first time I had a major problem with this engine very early in the first two years of owning it. The engine and components are faulty; I just got a bad make. A feedback card came in my mail it says, ?as a valued Nissan customer, your satisfaction throughout your ownership experience is our company?s highest priority?? so, then why hide behind the expired warranty? I was told, even if the NHTSA force a recall and Nissan found I am the cause, the Nissan board would willfully recall vehicles from 2004 up, to spite me or, single out the specific problems I now have repair them ignoring the vehicle?s young engine is completely faulty.

Seal on Nissan Murano 2007 with 77,000 miles malfunctioned/exploded causing oil to leak damaging the transfer case. Both my mechanic and the service area of the dealership mentioned that they had not seen anything like this. Dealership came back with a quote of about $4,500; car is not under warranty. I told them not to service it at this time; that was unacceptable and should not happen on a 3 year car despite the mileage; Nissan guarantees 100,000. I took my case to the cooperate office in tennessee where they set up file. Valerie, the regional specialist contacted me within about a week and explained that since it was no longer under warranty they would not offer any assistance with the cost. I explained that whether it was under warranty or not was not the issue; the problem is that Nissan has know about this for quite some time and decided not to do anything about it; I. E. Recall the car. Valerie was extremely rude and unprofessional and quite belligerent. As I tried to get a manager she would not cooperate. I have retained a lawyer and I am also considering filing under the lemon law. Nissan knew about the problem; has no concern of the safety of their vehicle and/or the consumer. I would appreciate it if you would research. There are a number of complaints that I have already found related to the transfer case. Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Uses oil!! I heard a rattle or a chattering noise form the engine on light acceleration. Checked engine oil it was low. Put about 1-1. 5qts in. Fixed problem. Next oil change about 1500-2000 miles into the oil change heard same thing. Again low oil repeated last process. Changed oil and again about 1500-2000 miles into the oil change same problem. There isn't a leak one any wear out side the engine must be leaking past the rings and into the cylinders and being burnt. If not caught in time will eventually lead to engine failure which means no power steering no power brakes, caught in traffic, or out in the middle of no wear.
