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.

Own a 2004 Nissan Murano. Sun visor on both driver and passenger sides have failed to stay in their proper all-the-way flip up or down positions. They would suddenly and unexpectedly drop to obstruct the vision of the driver. Said problem is prevalent in models 2003-2007 and has been cited by a lot of owners. Dealer quoted cost $300+ to replace.

The sun visor on my 2004 Nissan Murano suddenly just flops down for no reason while im driving. A few times it has gotten in the way of my direct sight and has caused me to swerve almost getting into an accident. I've replaced the visor once already myself but the new visor is now failing again and Nissan won't do anything about it since its been out of warranty for some time now.

Nissan Murano driver's side sun visor falls into driver's line of vision when driving over bumpy roads. This is a safety hazard as it impedes the driver's visibility. It happens consistently and the only solution appears to be replacing the visor at a cost of $400+.

I own a 2004 Nissan Murano. Front wheel drive. My driver side sun visor does not stay up any more? it started falling down in 2007, by 2009 I had to remove the lighted mirror to decrease the weight so that the visor would not have the added weight pulling the visor down. I tried to wrap duck tape around the visor plastic tab but the visor stills falls after awhile. It now just falls every time I go out for a drive. Nissan dealership and auto maker will not make good on this defective product!!!

We purchased a certified used 2004 Nissan Murano in March 2006. Within 6 mos, the driver's side sun visor started falling by itself, impairing the vision of the driver unexpectedly. The problem worsened until it just now hangs permanently straight down. In order to drive safely, we have to drive with it permanently to the side position which then blocks our side vision. There is no way to drive the Murano without vision impairment of some sort.

2004 Nissan Murano sunvisors are junk. They are a very serious safety hazard when they fall down when you are driving and obstruct your vision. Nissan want $330 to replace this visor with I assume another piece of crap ya right, they need to be recalled!!!!!!!!!! I will never buy another Nissan in my life just because of these annoying overpriced dangerous sunvisors!!!

Sun visors in 2004 Murano do not stay in position. On the freeway they suddenly fall down blocking vision. Nissan had a tsb, but outside the 3/36 warranty, they are $400 to repair.

The driver side sun visor does not stay up. When driving, it will occasionally and randomly fall into the down position, blocking the view of the road. This has happened at least a dozen times in the past year and a half of driving my 04 Murano. The last time it happened it was at night and I happened to be driving at night. The visor dropped while in the middle of going around a curve. Luckily no one was in the oncoming traffic lane and disaster was averted. But this could have been a very ugly incident. I have not replaced the visor components yet, because of the cost of the repair.

Driver and passenger side sun visors fall with any minor bump (or even without any jarring at times). Not only does it startle the driver when it happens (possibly leading to erratic driving, but it blocks the driver's field of vision creating a further safety hazard. Many times simply raising the visor up does not work and it falls again leaving the driver trying to handle the car safely with one hand while simultaneously trying to keep the visor out of his field of vision.

Murano 6-cyl

  • 60,000 miles
I have a 2004 Nissan Murano. The sun visors fall loose at the slightest vibration. Every bump we hit sends them falling into my path of vision. I have 60K and therefore I am out of the factory warranty. I fear that the visor will fall at the wrong time, causing a potential accident. Please tell me what I can do to have Nissan correct this.

Murano 6-cyl

  • 88,000 miles
2004 Nissan Murano. Passenger side and driver side sun visors keep falling down and blocking view while driving. It is getting progressively worse. Started falling as a result of any jarring while driving (pot hole, uneven road, etc). Now, will happen when suddenly pressing on the brakes while in city traffic. Really is a safety hazard. First, the surprise of the visor suddenly dropping down and second having your view obscured while in traffic. Really need to look into this issue.

The driver's side sun visor of my 2004 Nissan Murano will not stay in the up position. Every time you go over the smallest bump it falls down covering the driver's view of the road unexpectedly.
