Summary of Complaint

ON 3 SEPARATE OCCASIONS, MY VEHICLE LOST BRAKE PEDAL PRESSURE AND HAD EXCESSIVE TRAVEL TO THE FLOOR REQUIRING EXTRA DISTANCE IN ORDER TO BRING THE VEHICLE TO A COMPLETE STOP ABS TO AVOID A COLLISION. ON ONE OCCASION, I DROVE OVER A BUMP ON THE EXPRESSWAY AND THE BRAKE PEDAL TRAVELED ALL THE WAY DOWN TO THE FLOOR. AFTER PUMPING THE PEDAL A FEW TIMES, PRESSURE WAS RESTORED. ALL BRAKE COMPONENTS ARE IN PROPER WORKING ORDER AND MAINTAINED BY AN ASE MASTER TECHNICIAN. THE MASTER CYLINDER DOES NOT SHOW SIGN OF LEAKING. A CHECK ONLINE REVEALED THAT THE 2009 MURANOS HAD THE SAME EXACT ISSUE (WHICH IS NOW A RECALL) THAT I AM EXPERIENCING ON MY VEHICLE AND WAS DISCOVERED TO BE A FAULTY ABS MODULE. A CHECK ALSO REVEALED THAT CERTAIN 2011 MURANO HAD THE SAME ISSUE AS THE 2009 BUT NO RECALL WAS EVER ISSUED.

WHILE DRIVING ON A PAVED ROAD, A LOUD EXPLOSION CONSUMED THE CAR. THE CLOSED SUNROOF/CLOSED SHADE EXPLODED SENDING SHATTERED GLASS AIRBORNE AND ON TOP OF THE CLOSED SHADE. THIS CAUSED A HORRIBLE NOISE AS THE GLASS BOUNCED ON THE SHADE AS I SLOWLY MADE MY WAY BACK HOME AND TO THE DEALERSHIP! DURING THE RETURN ROUTE, YOU COULD HEAR THE GLASS CRACKING AS IT BROKE FREE AND FLEW OFF WHILE DRIVING AT A SLOW SPEED.

Summary of Complaint

PASSENGER AIR BAG LIGHT CONTINUOUSLY FLASHES. CAR HAS 28,600 MILES AND ALMOST NEVER HAS HAD A PASSENGER IN THE SEAT. DRIVEN BY SINGLE, WIDOWED DRIVER. CAR IS ROUTINELY SERVICED AT DEALER. GOT A QUOTE OF OVER $5200 TO REPAIR. I HAVE READ A FEW OTHER COMPLAINTS ONLINE FOR THIS MODEL WITH MUCH HIGHER MILEAGE. NISSAN SAYS THEY ARE NOT TAKING NOT RESPONSIBILITY AND I SHOULD CONTACT THIS AGENCY, $5200 IS ROUGHLY MORE THAN HALF OF THE VALUE OF THE CAR AND NON-REPAIR MAKES IT UNSAFE SHOULD AN OCCASIONAL PASSENGER SIT IN THE SIT AND ALMOST NON-SALABLE. THIS IS OBVIOUSLY A SAFETY ISSUE.

Summary of Complaint

WE RECENTLY BOUGHT AN OUT OF WARRANTY, AS IS 2012 NISSAN MURANO AND THE DASH AIRBAG LIGHT AND PASSENGER AIRBAG LIGHT ARE BOTH ON. THEY NEVER GO OFF AFTER THE INITIAL 7 SECOND WAIT TIME. VEHICLE IN MOTION OR STANDING STILL DOESN'T MATTER. I HAVE SCANNED FOR CODES AND B1018-00 KEEPS COMING BACK AFTER ATTEMPTING TO ERASE. NORMAL SIZED PEOPLE SIT IN THESE TWO SEATS AND USE THEIR SEAT BELTS RELIGIOUSLY SO "MISALIGNED SEATING" IS NOT THE CASE. I HAVE RESEARCHED THIS AND A FEW OTHERS HAVE HAD THE EXACT PROBLEM. THIS IS A SAFETY ITEM THAT SHOULD BE TAKEN CARE OF BY NISSAN REGARDLESS OF MILEAGE AND SUCH BUT I'M SEEING THAT PEOPLE ARE GETTING A "OH WELL" KIND OF RESPONSE FROM NISSAN. IF THERE'S A CLASS ACTION SUIT TO GET IN, I WILL. I HAVE NOT CONTACTED NISSAN ABOUT THIS AS OF YET BUT WILL PROBABLY HAVE TO AT LEAST SPEND BIG DOLLARS TO GET IT SCANNED AND DIAGNOSED AT A DEALERSHIP.

Summary of Complaint

PASSENGER AIRBAG LIGHT IS ON AND WILL NOT RESET. VEHICLE HAS 116,000 MILES, CODE B1018 CODE WHICH CALLS FOR PASSENGER SEAT SENSOR AND MODULE ASSEMBLY. THIS PART IS PART OF THE SEAT ITSELF WHICH NISSAN CHARGES $4000 FOR. THIS IS A SAFETY ISSUE BECAUSE NO ONE IS GOING TO PAY $4000 PLUS COST TO INSTALL JUST TO HAVE A PASSENGER AIRBAG. THIS COULD RESULT IN INJURY OR DEATH THAT MIGHT OTHERWISE BE AVOIDED IF THE COST TO REPAIR WAS REASONABLE. NISSAN HAD A FLAWED DESIGN WHERE THE INEXPENSIVE PARTS WERE NOT SEPARATE FROM THE VERY EXPENSIVE SEAT. I HAVE CONTACTED NISSAN AND THEY HAVE NO INTEREST IN HELPING OUT.

Summary of Complaint

MY 2012 NISSAN MURANO HAS APPROX 119,000 MILES ON IT. THE PASSENGER SIDE AIR BAG LIGHT STAYS ON INDICATING THAT THE AIRBAG IS OFF, EVEN WHEN THERE IS SOMEONE IN THE PASSENGER'S SEAT, EVEN WHEN IT'S A FULL GROWN ADULT. IN ADDITION, I HAVE A FLASHING RED AIRBAG LIGHT ON MY DASH AS WELL. AFTER A COUPLE WEEKS OF THIS, I TOOK MY VEHICLE TO THE DEALER AS LISTED IN THE MANUAL. THEY SAID THE SENSOR WENT OUT AND THE ENTIRE SEAT CUSHION FOR THE PASSENGER SIDE WOULD NEED TO BE REPLACED AT A COST OF ~$5300. I ONLY PAID $11000 FOR THE VEHICLE TO BEGIN WITH. THERE'S NO WAY I WILL BE PAYING HALF THE VEHICLE'S WORTH FOR A BASIC SAFETY NECESSITY. I BELIEVE THE MANUFACTURER SHOULD PAY FOR ANY COSTS RELATED TO A SAFETY ISSUE SUCH AS THIS AND IT APPEARS THAT I'M NOT THE ONLY VEHICLE OWNER EXPERIENCING THIS ISSUE. PLEASE RECTIFY THE SITUATION AND DO A RECALL FOR THESE AIRBAGS OR FOR THE SENSORS IN THE SEAT CUSHIONS. IT'S NOT RIGHT TO PUT US ALL IN DANGER LIKE THIS.

POWER LOSS ON TAKE OFF. ISSUE HAS BEEN OCCURRING FOR OVER A YEAR AND IS INTERMITTENT. WHEN STARTING OFF FROM A STOPPED POSITION, IE STOP SIGN, RED LIGHT, OR HIGHWAY ONRAMP, THE VEHICLE WILL ENGAGE, BUT IMMEDIATELY LOOSE ACCELERATION. THE GAS PEDDLE CAN BE FULLY PRESSED, WITH NO REACTION. AFTER A FEW SECONDS THE POWER GETS RESTORED AND VEHICLE TAKES OFF AS IF ENGAGING A JET BOOSTER. A VISIT AND DIAGNOSTIC CHECK AT A NISSAN DEALER, DID NOT REVEAL AND FAULTS OR CODES, AND ISSUE COULD NOT BE RECREATED. THIS ISSUES IS RANDOM, AND BASED ON A NISSAN OWNER FORUM, I LEARNED IT HAS PLAGUED THE MURANO AND IS LEXIS COUNTER PART FOR DIFFERENT MODEL YEARS. NO FORUM ENTRIES AS TO KNOWN CAUSE OR CORRECTIVE FINDINGS BY THE DEALERSHIPS OR MECHANICS.

Summary of Complaint

MY VEHICLE IS A 2012 NISSAN MURANO WITH 111,000 MILES. THE CVT TRANSMISSION STOPPED FUNCTIONING AND NEEDED TO BE REPLACED. MY LOCAL TRANSMISSION SPECIALIST MECHANIC REFUSED TO FIX IT BECAUSE THERE HAVE BEEN SO MANY COMPLAINTS AND LAWSUITS AGAINST NISSAN DUE TO THE CVT TRANSMISSION. BECAUSE OF LEGAL JUDGMENTS AGAINST NISSAN, THE COMPANY EXTENDED WARRANTIES ON MANY VEHICLES UP TO 10 YEARS AND 120,000 MILES. MY 2012 MURANO WAS NOT INCLUDED IN THOSE JUDGMENTS. I GOT THE VEHICLE REPAIRED AT A LOCAL NISSAN DEALER FOR A TOTAL COST OF $5,696.06. I CONTACTED NISSAN DIRECTLY, PROVIDED THE DOCUMENTATION THEY ASKED FOR AND ASKED FOR REIMBURSEMENT. NISSAN DID CONTACT ME, BUT REFUSED TO REIMBURSE ME. I WOULD LIKE TO BE REIMBURSED BY NISSAN BECAUSE OF THE DEFECTIVE CVT TRANSMISSION. I AM FILING A COMPLAINT BECAUSE I BELIEVE THERE NEEDS TO BE A RECALL ON THE CVT TRANSMISSION FOR MY MODEL YEAR BASED ON THE OBVIOUS DEFECTS AS HAVE BEEN PROVEN BY MULTIPLE LAWSUITS AGAINST THE COMPANY.

I HAVE BEEN DRIVING OVER 50 YEARS AND I HAVE NEVER HAD A PROBLEM LIKE THIS IN ANY OTHER VEHICLE. THE DEALER SAID IT IS MY PROBLEM AND WANTS OVER 300.00 TO FIX IT. WHEN I LOOKED UP TO SEE IF THERE WAS A WAY TO TIGHTEN THE VISOR I FOUND OUT IT IS A ON GOING PROBLEM WITH MANY PEOPLE. I BELIEVE IT IS A MANUFACTURE AND A SAFETY PROBLEM.

Summary of Complaint

WHILE DRIVING APPROXIMATELY 50 MPH IN GOOD WEATHER AND LIGHT TRAFFIC OUR CLOSED SUN ROOF SPONTANEOUSLY EXPLODED WITH INTENSE FORCE. WHEN WE GOT OUT TO LOOK AT IT, IT WAS CLEAR THAT IT EXPLODED FROM WITHIN AS THE EDGES OF THE HOLE (ABOUT 2 FT X 1.5 FT) WERE PUSHING UPWARD. ALL OF THE GLASS WITHIN THAT AREA BLEW OUT WITH NO DAMAGE BELOW IT NOR WERE THERE ANY REMAINING GLASS FRAGMENTS BELOW IT EVEN THOUGH WHAT WAS LEFT OF THE SUNROOF WAS COMPLETELY FULL OF SMALL SHATTER LINES. WE'VE ALWAYS MAINTAINED OUR VEHICLE AND HAVE RARELY USED THE SUNROOF. OUR EXTENDED WARRANTY CARRIER REFUSED TO PAY BECAUSE IT WAS GLASS. OUR INSURANCE COMPANY DENIED OUR CLAIM BECAUSE THERE WAS NO EVIDENCE OF AN EXTERIOR IMPACT. NISSAN (CORPORATE) REFUSED TO COMPENSATE US BECAUSE THEY SAID THERE WAS NO PROOF AS TO HOW IT HAPPENED. AFTER LOOKING ON THE WEB, IT APPEARS THAT THIS IS A KNOWN ISSUE. THE EXPERIENCE WAS VERY JARRING AS IT SOUNDED LIKE SOMETHING BLEW UP JUST ABOVE OUR HEADS. WE THOUGHT A PLANE DROPPED SOMETHING FROM ABOVE OR SOMEONE SHOT AT OUR CAR BUT THEN REALIZED NOTHING CAME INTO THE CAR. FORTUNATELY, WE WERE NOT INJURED, DID NOT VEER INTO ANOTHER CAR, AND THANK GOD IT DIDN'T HAPPEN NEAR ANY PEDESTRIANS. WE PAID TO HAVE IT FIXED, BUT FOR ALL WE KNOW, IT COULD HAPPEN AGAIN AT ANY TIME.

LUCKILY THE SUN SHADE WAS CLOSED AND ALL OF THE GLASS WAS CONTAINED IN THE SHADE AND WE WERE ABLE TO SAFELY PULL OVER. I CONTACTED THE LOCAL NISSAN DEALER WHO TOLD ME THAT THEY DID NOT HANDLE THAT AND THAT I SHOULD CONTACT A COLLISION CENTER BECAUSE THEY DID NOT FIX SUNROOFS.

Summary of Complaint

THE CAR WAS WELL MAINTAINED AT THE DEALER WHERE PURCHASED NEW. OVER 6 YEARS THERE HAVE BEEN NUMEROUS PROBLEMS. THE 2 MOST SERIOUS AND DANGEROUS WAS THE FAILURE OF THE RACK & PINION MECHANISM. I BROUGHT THE CAR IN FOR SERVICE AND MENTIONED A NOISE THINKING IT IS THE POWER STEERING PUMP. THE SERVICE MANAGER SAID DO NOT DRIVE THE CAR OUT OF THE REPAIR SHOP AS IT WAS UNSAFE. THE MOST RECENT EVENT WAS THE TOTAL FAILURE OF THE RADIATOR. IT LITERALLY CAME APART AND COULD HAVE LED TO ENGINE SEIZURE. THIS WAS DISCOVERED AS I PULLED OUT OF MY GARAGE AND NOTICED A POOL OF COOLANT. THERE WAS NO LIGHT OR HOT/COLD INDICATOR THAT THE ENGINE WAS RUNNING HOT. I WAS TOWED TO THE DEALER FOR ANOTHER COSTLY REPAIR. THERE WERE OTHER PROBLEMS WITH THE FRONT END; TIE ROD, MOTOR MOUNT, CV BOOT, BUT THESE ARE THE MOST SERIOUS AND VERY DANGEROUS. I HAVE DOCUMENTATION FOR ALL THESE OCCURRENCES. THE MURANO IS A TRUE LEMON.
