Summary of Complaint

SEAT SUDDENLY DROPPED TO THE DRIVERS SIDE IN THE VEHICLE AGAINST THE DOOR. THIS SUDDEN CHANGE IN POSITION CAUSED ME TO SWERVE THE VEHICLE NEARLY MISSING THE CAR NEXT TO ME IN THE OTHER LANE. IF THIS SEAT WAS TO FAIL COMPLETELY I COULD HAVE BEEN THROWN BACKWARDS IN THE VEHICLE LOSING THE ABILITY TO PRESS THE BRAKE PEDAL TO STOP THE VEHICLE AND THIS WOULD HAVE RESULTED IN A CRASH OF THE VEHICLE. THIS VEHICLE IS USED BY A 160 POUND WOMAN AND EVEN THOUGH HAS SOME AGE HAS ONLY 43,000 ORIGINAL MILES ON THE ODOMETER. IT IS USED STRICTLY FOR PLEASURE DRIVING ON THE WEEKENDS. THIS FAILURE OCCURRED WHILE TRAVELLING ON A HIGHWAY AT HIGHWAY SPEED AND ROUNDING A CORNER. UPON REVIEWING THE MANY MANY THINGS THAT HAVE BEEN WRITTEN UP ON THE INTERNET ABOUT HOW PERVASIVE THIS PROBLEM IS THERE IS NO REASON THAT A POOR DESIGN ON THE SEAT LIFTING FRAME HAS RESULTED IN A CATASTROPHIC FAILURE OF THIS PART AND NISSAN HAS NOW REDESIGNED THE PART TO REINFORCE THE SEAT FRAME PART OT MAKE IT MORE STURDY. THIS REDESIGN MEANS TO ME THAT THEY RECOGNIZE THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH THE ORIGINAL DESIGN AND THEY SHOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FO RTHE REPAIR NOT TELL CONSUMERS THEY NEED TO PAY TO HAVE IT REPAIRED AT A COST OF BETWEEN $1,000 AND $2,500. THAT IS RIDICULOUS.

Summary of Complaint

I WAS DRIVING DOWN THE HIGHWAY WITH MY GIRLFRIEND AND 4 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER IN THE CAR. WE WERE DRIVING INTO A CURVE TO THE RIGHT AND I HEARD A LOUD POP. AT THE SAME TIME THE DRIVER SEAT WHICH I WAS SITTING IN FELL BACK AND TO THE LEFT CAUSING ME THE JERK THE WHEEL. WE SHOT ACROSS THE OTHER LANE SPUN AROUND AND SKIDDED TO A STOP. LUCKILY, NO CARS WERE COMING THE OTHER WAY . I DIDN'T THINK MUCH OF IT AT THE TIME UNTIL I FINALLY GOT AROUND TO BEING ABLE TO AFFORD TO FIX IT (BEING A NISSAN I KNEW IT WASN'T GOING TO BE CHEAP) , I DISCOVERED THAT THIS IS A COMMON PROBLEM WITH THE 2006 NISSAN MURANO. AND THAT MINE WAS NOT AN ISOLATED INCIDENT. I CAME ACROSS HUNDREDS OF COMPLAINTS OF THIS PROBLEM, SO IT MAKES ME WONDER AFTER MY ORDEAL, HOW LONG BEFORE SOMEBODY GETS KILLED FROM THIS OBVIOUS DEFECT. , NISSAN HAS TO BE AWARE OF IT ,BUT STILL THERE HAS BEEN NO RECALL FOR THE AMERICAN PUBLIC . PLEASE TELL ME SOMEONE IS ON TOP OF THIS BECAUSE ITS NOT A TIRE PRESSURE SENSOR OR A HEAD LAMP FUSE, THIS IS THE DRIVER SEAT .IS THERE ANY MORE IMPORTANT THING IN THE CAR THAN KEEPING THE DRIVER IN CONTROL ? I THINK EVERYBODY WOULD AGREE NO. SOMEONE PLEASE DO SOMETHING. *TR

Summary of Complaint

UPON STARTING VEHICLE IN A.M., I HEARD A LOUD WHINE EMANATE FROM ENGINE COMPARTMENT. THE SOUND WAS EXACTLY LIKE BRITTLE LEAVES FROM A TREE WERE RUBBING ON THE MOVING BELTS. I TURNED STEERING WHEEL LEFT AND RIGHT AND STEERING SENSATION SEEMED SPORADIC AND IRREGULAR. I OPENED THE HOOD AND CHECKED SERPENTINE BELT AND POWER STEERING BELT. I THOUGHT THE BELTS MAY BE GLAZED OR HAVE LOOSENED OR HAD A FOREIGN OBJECT TOUCHING THEM. ALL LOOKED OKAY BUT THE NOISE REMAINED. THAT AFTERNOON I CALLED MY MECHANIC AND MADE APPT. MY MECHANIC CHECKED VEHICLE , ADDED POWER STEERING FLUID AS HE FOUND THERE WAS A LEAK IN THE POWER STEERING PRESSURE HOSE AND SAID HE WOULD ORDER A NEW UNIT AND INSTALL AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. HE SAID THIS IS AN EXTREMELY COMMON PART TO FAIL ON THESE MURANOS. WITHIN A FEW DAYS THE REPAIR WAS COMPLETE, HOWEVER IT SET ME BACK FOUR HUNDRED DOLLARS. I CALLED NISSAN AT 1-800- NISSAN1. THE AGENT ON BEHALF OF NISSAN REFUSED TO ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY, HOWEVER DID MAKE A CASE NUMBER. I STATED SOMEONE WILL BE SERIOUSLY INJURED OR KILLED ONE DAY, BUT WAS MET WITH THE OBLIGATORY "WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE". I CALLED THE DEALER WHERE I PURCHASED THE MURANO AND WAS TOLD NISSAN IS WELL AWARE OF THE NUMEROUS FAILURES OF THIS POWER STEERING PRESSURE HOSE, AND IT IS EXTREMELY COMMON. SINCE THERE IS NO RECALL, THERE IS NOTHING THAT COULD BE DONE TO ASSIST ME. *TR

Summary of Complaint

I HAVE A 2006 NISSAN MURANO. THE DRIVER SIDE LEFT WELD BRACKET BROKE ON MY SEAT. THIS HAS CREATED A HUGE SAFETY HAZARD FOR ME... AND IT'S GOING TO COST ME AROUND $1400 TO FIX. THIS DOESN'T SEEM RIGHT TO ME... I HAVE SEEN A LOT OF COMPLAINTS ABOUT THIS SAME ISSUE. WHY HASN'T NISSAN STEPPED IN AND ISSUED A RECALL TO MAKE THIS RIGHT BEFORE SOMEONE GETS SERIOUSLY INJURED OR KILLED, DUE TO THIS ISSUE. I WAS UNDER THE IMPRESSION THAT NISSAN MADE A QUALITY VEHICLE THAT WAS BUILT TO LAST AND SAFE. THIS IS EXTREMELY DANGEROUS! *TR

Summary of Complaint

WHILE DRIVING ON THE DEALER PROVIDED SPEAR, THE REAR DIFFERENTIAL WAS DAMAGED AND CAUSED THE REAR WHEELS TO GRIP AT 50 MPH. THE WHEELS WOULD HAVE LOCKED UP IF I HAD CONTINUED DRIVING AT THAT RATE OF SPEED. THIS IS AN UNSAFE SITUATION, BECAUSE THE DEALER PROVIDED SPEAR IS NOT APPROPRIATE FOR THIS TYPE OF VEHICLE (AWD/SUV). I COULD HAVE LOST MY LIFE IF THE WHEELS HAD LOCKED UP COMPLETELY AND I LOST CONTROL OF THE CAR IN TRAFFIC. I AM A NURSE AT AN ACUTE CARE HOSPITAL AND I FEEL THIS IS A SIGNIFICANT SAFE ISSUE THAT NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED BY NISSAN. *JS

Summary of Complaint

I WAS ON THE HIGHWAY DRIVING AND I HEARD A CRACK NOISE AND THE DRIVER SEAT JUST FELL BACK AND LEAN BACK TO THE LEFT. THE SEATING JUST FREELY FALLS BACK. I PULLED OVER AND LOOK UNDERNEATH AND SAW THAT THERE IS THIS LITTLE BAR, SLIMMER THAN MY PINKY FINGER, WHICH WAS SUPPORT THE SEAT BROKE. WHEN I GOT HOME AND RESEARCHED, I WAS SHOCKED TO WHAT I SAW, A LOT OF COMPLAINTS ABOUT THIS ISSUE.THIS EXPERIENCE WAS ONE OF THE SCARIEST THING I HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED. TO KNOW THAT THIS WAS THE ONLY BAR SUPPORTING THE SEAT AND NOTHING HAS BEEN DONE ABOUT IT, I AM REALLY SHOCKED AND REALLY HOPE SOMETHING WILL BE DONE FOR NISSAN TO RECTIFY THIS PROBLEM BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE FOR SOME PEOPLE. *TR
