I took mt vehicle to the Nissan dealership several times complaining about noise, acceleration on the gas pedal out of the blue, speed decreasing while driving on hwy at 70mph, to 10 or less mph. I've spent about $3000 on a calculator conversion and exhaust system, that I might not even needed. I had to have my truck towed to the Nissan dealership that has been servicing my truck. They said my transmission was out of warranty. My transmission was under warranty when the problem began last year, but the dealership p tech choose to word the problems a different way not to reflect transmission issue. Dealership nor Nissan want to assist to fix my truck. I have about 152,000k on my truck now, but I had way less when problems began. I need assistance to get truck fix, I'm sill paying the $9000. I owe in it. Nissan is not stepping up to the plate when they knew there were transmission issues in the Murano truck. I'm very unhappy, discussed, sad that I'm trapped in a truck that's not safe.

We have contacted the Nissan dealer where we bought the vehicle, and they so far have not taken any responsibility. It is supposed to be covered by warranty, but have been reading about all the other Nissan Murano owners with the same transmission problem. Our Nissan has 64,000 plus miles on it. This problem occurred on December 17, 2010.
#7 - Transmission Noise problem of the 2003 Nissan Murano
The VIN of this Murano is JN8AZ08W83_. 2003 Nissan Murano awd would accelerate and skip gears. If you are in stop and go traffic and you take your foot off the gas the car will lunge forward and try to go into a higher gear then first. This started happening intermittently then it happened several times in one day the Friday before memorial day 2006. On Saturday when we started the car it made a horrible clunking noise. We drove the car to the dealer and several days later we were told we would need a brand new transmission at a cost of $4000. The car has 78,000 miles and is 32 months old. All the miles are highway miles. We do not have an extended warranty because we have always owned Nissan cars and never had a problem. I have conducted research and found several consumers have experienced the transmission problems at various life cycles of the vehicle. Some had problems with in the first thousand miles. It is suspected that the problems are caused by the new cvt technology that Nissan first introduced in the Nissan Murano in 2003. I think this is a serious problem.

#9 - Transmission Noise problem of the 2003 Nissan Murano
The car was a 2003 Nissan Murano. Vehicle identification number (VIN): JN8AZ08T53_. I brought my Nissan into the dealer the beginning of April 2008 because the "service engine soon" light was on. . . And I was told my car's computer needed to "re-learn" something. That cost me $100. Then, about two weeks later, I was on the interstate, my engine started making a straining noise, and I began to lose power. Of course, my "service engine soon" light popped on. No matter how hard I pressed the gas pedal, my car would not speed up. . . And the rpm seemed to be stuck on 4,000. My speed steadily decreased, and I had to finally stop my car in the breakdown lane. I left it sit for about 15 minutes, restarted it, and it miraculously fixed itself. I made it off the interstate, but it eventually started acting up again. I pulled into a parking lot and let it sit for about 2 hours. That was long enough for it to fix itself again and make it to the Nissan dealer. It didn't give me any trouble on the way to the dealer, so I was completely shocked when they told me that I needed a new transmission!!! that absolutely never even occurred to me that something that major could be wrong! my Murano has just over 70,000 miles on it. . . . Unbelievable! it ended up sitting at the dealer for more than a week because they had to order the transmission. The total cost would've been $5,700, but my extended warranty covered it. That's a big relief, but now I've lost faith in my Murano. I've had minor problems before, and it even completely died on me and had to be towed (I guess I need to lookup that problem and report it too). . . But I just thought "these things happen no matter how new a car is. " it is comforting to know that so many other people have had the same problem. . . Thanks to this website. Nissan really needs to do something. This is a huge mistake on their part, and to keep bragging about how awesome their Nissan transmissions are. . . Is very wrong. Nissan needs to stand behind their product. It was 04/19/2008 when this transmission noise issue happened.

#12 - Transmission Noise problem of the 2003 Nissan Murano
The vehicle involved is a 2003 Nissan Murano. The VIN of the car is JN8AZ08T53_. I was out completing last minute christmas shopping when my car starting making a loud clicking noise then stopped in the middle of traffic. The car would not go forward nor in reverse. I called my insurance company which had it towed to Nissan which informed me I would need a new cvt, which irritates me more because I had just gotten my car serviced on 18 December 09 and everything was suppose to be good to go. I feel completely helpless because the car at most is worth only 8 to 9,000. By the looks of all the complaints a new transmission is going to run me 3-5,000. I ensured I serviced my Murano only by Nissan at times prescribed and I'm forced to shell out more money on a $32,000 vehicle. This transmission noise issue occurred Dec. 24, 2009.
