Summary of Complaint

2009 NISSAN WITH 174,220 MILES NOTICED STEERING WHEEL WAS NOT ALIGNED AND BACK WHEELS WERE NOT LINING UP. ALSO, WHEN DRIVING ON THE HIGHWAY THE CAR WANTS TO SWAY TO THE LEFT OR RIGHT OR BOTH WHEN A BUMP IS HIT IN THE ROAD. THE MURANO WAS TAKEN TO NISSAN DEALER TO HAVE THE CAR CHECKED AND THEY STATED THAT THE K-FRAME ON THE REAR WAS RUSTED AND BROKE COMPLETELY IN HALF CAUSING MY TIRES TO FLARE OUT AND WORN TO THE BELTS ON THE INSIDE OF BOTH REAR TIRES. I HAVE RESEARCHED AND FOUND MANY COMPLAINTS ON 2005-2010 MURANO'S WITH THE SAME ISSUE. THIS IS SURELY A RECALL THAT THE NISSAN MANUFACTURER WOULD NEED TO REPLACE. NOW I WILL NEED THE FULL K-FRAME REPLACED, NEW EXHAUST AND TIRES.

Summary of Complaint

WOULD LOSE BRAKE PRESSURE GOING OVER A MANHOLE COVER/ANY UNEVEN SURFACE WHILE BRAKING, GENERALLY BRAKING TO A STOP. THIS WOULD HAPPEN PERIODICALLY FOR ABOUT A YEAR (2016-2017). ON 9/3/2017 I WAS BRAKING FOR A RED LIGHT, WENT OVER A MANHOLE COVER AND LOST ALL BRAKE PRESSURE. VEHICLE WOULD STOP BUT YOU WOULD NEED TO PRESS THE PEDAL TO THE FLOOR. I BROUGHT MY CAR TO THE DEALERSHIP WHERE THEY DETERMINED THE ABS CONTROL UNIT WAS INOPERABLE. THE DEALERSHIP REPLACED THE UNIT 9/14/17. I CONTACTED NISSAN AND WAS GIVEN A CASE NUMBER (28309423) BUT WAS NEVER CONTACTED. I AM REPORTING THIS NOW AS MY VIN IS NOT INCLUDED IN THE CURRENT RECALL AND I FEEL IT SHOULD BE.

Summary of Complaint

2009 NISSAN MURANO. BROKEN REAR CROSSMEMBER MAKING VEHICLE UNSAFE TO DRIVE, NEEDING REPLACEMENT OF CROSSMEMBER. NISSAN HAS PROBLEMS WITH CROSSMEMBERS ON MULTIPLE MODELS RUSTING AND BREAKING. CLEARLY THEY KNOW OF PROBLEM BUT HAVE BEEN ABLE TO GET AWAY WITH MANUFACTURING THESE VEHICLES TO JUST LAST LONG ENOUGH TO MAKE PAST WARRANTY. THERE HAS BEEN A RECALL IN 2006/2007 ON ALTIMA AND MAXIMA I BELIEVE FOR THIS PROBLEM. WE FIRST NOTICED BROKEN CROSSMEMBER WHEN CLUNKING NOISES FROM REAR STARTED WHILE DRIVING. ALSO ALIGNMENT AFFECTED WITH STEERING WHEEL OFF CENTER IS AN INDICATOR. SO USED NISSAN VEHICLES BEING PURCHASED BY YOUNG NEW FAMILIES WITH CHILDREN IS A DISASTER WAITING TO HAPPEN.

VIN: JN8AZ18W79W****

Summary of Complaint

WE WERE DRIVING ALONG 2 DIFFERENT TIMES AND THE BRAKES WERE NOT WORKING RIGHT. WE HAD TO PUSH THE PEDAL ALL THE WAY TO THE FLOOR AND WAS STILL BARELY STOPPING. IT WAS LIKE A VERY SLOW BREAKING PROCESS AND CAME CLOSE TO HITTING THE ONES IN FRONT AT A STOP LIGHT. BOTH TIMES WE NOTICED IT WAS WHEN WE WERE COMING TO A STOP SIGN OR LIGHT. EVENTUALLY THE BRAKES START TO WORK AGAIN. BUT WE DID NOTICE THAT WHEN THE CAR WAS STOPPED AND TURNED OFF AFTER THESE EVENTS, THE PEDAL WAS VERY LOOSE WHILE OFF.

VIN: JN8AZ18W79W****

Summary of Complaint

I LOSE ABS BREAKING WHEN I RUN OVER A POTHOLE OR SLIDE ON ICE/SNOW. IT OCCURRED TWICE THIS WEEK. ONCE I WAS DRIVING AND I WENT THROUGH A STOP SIGN B/C I COULDN'T COME TO A STOP WITH THE BRAKES PRESSED TO THE FLOOR. A SECOND OCCURRENCE TOOK PLACE FOR MY WIFE WHEN SHE HIT A POTHOLE AND IT TOOK A SIGNIFICANT STOPPING DISTANCE TO COME TO A COMPLETE STOP. ONLY BY SHUTTING OFF THE ENGINE AND RESTARTING THE ENGINE DOES THE ABS SYSTEM AND THEREFORE THE BREAKS WORK AGAIN. THIS HAS OCCURRED OVER THE PAST 12 MONTHS AND WE HAVE HAD A FULL INSPECTION ON MY BRAKE LINING, ABS SYSTEM, FLUID PRESSURE, ETC AND EVERYTHING PASSES. WHAT SHOULD BE DONE TO CORRECT THIS ISSUE?
