Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

problem #10

Dec 202010

Murano SE V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles


Both sun visors fall which obstruct view while driving! I have to use a bungee chord to keep them up an out of the way! Totally annoying and dangerously! I can't believe this was never a recall issue! Talk about a safety issue...I will not consider buying another Nissan due to their disregard of this issue!

Murano LX 3.2L V6

  • CVT transmission
  • 90,000 miles

Driver's side visor broke again, for second time, now out of warranty. I tried to use Velcro to hold up both from flapping down, but now use elastic bands. It's really expensive to have repaired right.

Murano LX 3.2L V6

  • CVT transmission

Driver's side visor broke. Dealer said it wasn't covered under the bumper to bumper extended warranty until I made a fuss about it being a safety hazard falling down while driving.

Murano LS

  • CVT transmission
  • 136,000 miles

This is a really dangerous issue because it startles you when it happens and makes it where you are unable to see. I decided against spending hundreds and just bought a Velcro patch from Wal-Mart. It is not ideal because it makes the visor hard to use, but it does hold it up.

problem #5

Oct 192011

Murano LS V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 70,000 miles

Both Sun Visors (driver and passenger side) suddenly starting dropping down loose which affects my visibility in front and have to use other hand to hold it up. Dealer and Nissan Consumer affairs say that car is out of warranty and they did not agree to my request for a recall request on this part. Also cost of replacing is too high for me to ignore the fact the part quality is bad. I am considering this as an hazard to driving

Update from Jun 20, 2013: I finally gave up on Nissan Consumer to understand the seriousness of this issue and denying the fact the quality of the part is in question. Due to how risky it is for me to drive like this, I paid $$$ from my pocket to replace them.

Murano 3.5L

  • CVT transmission
  • 70,000 miles

The visor on the drivers side of my Nissan Murano POS also falls down. The replacement is now up to $560 according to my dealer, because they switched vendors.... for a freaking sun visor... For those others of you who have this problem, if you extend the sliding part of the sun visor, you can rest it on top of the rear view mirror to keep it out of your way, though it doesn't do any good if you actually need to use the thing. It will block your vision hanging limply, unless you are incredibly short.

I've seen many other people report the same problem... Why no recall on this? I guess not being able to see isn't a safety issue according to Nissan.

Murano V6

Sun visors not staying up, flopping down at will is dangerous. They obscure my vision while driving, could possibly cause an accident.

Murano SE 3.2L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 42,000 miles

The sunvisor will not stay keeps (flopping) falling down. It will not stay in the lifted position. Sometimes it is scary because it totally blocks my view. I really hope that I didn't buy a lemon...any feedback welcomed. The dealer wants us to pay $250 to fix it (parts & labor
