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.

My 2005 Nissan Murano's driver side visor will not stay in the up position. This causes problems with visibility while driving and is a safety hazard. The cost to replace is very high for such a small part.

The driver's side visor on my Nissan Murano keeps falling down constantly. It will not stay up on its own. I was backing out of a parking stall, and the visor fell down (at the exact wrong moment) blocking my vision. This caused me to be distracted and bump my car into a pole. The damage to my car was just enough where my whole bumper had to be replaced. The cost of the repairs from the auto body shop was $1,050. This is a factory safely hazard failure from Nissan. The expense to replace my visor is a ridiculous $400. Nissan needs to do a recall or at least sell this part at cost. I have since had to velcro the visor it into place. The velcro is not a solution and makes the visor useless. This visor problem is a safety hazard.

I just bought my 2005 Nissan Murano in May 2009 and have just started experiencing my drivers side visor will not stay up. At first I though it was just going to happen a few time, but now it wont stay up but for like 2 minutes then falls back down. I think that this is a major saftey issue, because for that split second that the visor is down I could wreck. I have also heard of other complaints because of passenger side visors doing the same thing, but nothing seems to be getting done. Obviously this is a defect and something should get replaced.

Sun visors on 2005 Nissan Murano keeps falling down. Sun visors on the driver and passenger's side keep falling down, and will not stay up. I went to the Nissan dealership and they said not covered under extended warranty and wants $350 dollars per sun visors ($700 plus tax) for the replacements. This is a driving hazard and Nissan should not charge these ridiculous prices for replacement of their faulty parts.

Approximately two months ago my driver side sun visor began to drop, unexpectedly without my touching it. It now no longer stays up at all and I have had to remove it entirely. I have not yet sought its replacement but understand that it can not be repaired and must be replaced at an exorbitant cost, ~$300.

The contact owns a 2005 Nissan Murano. The sun visor on the front driver's side will not stay up. The visor constantly falls down and blocks the contact's view of the road. The vehicle has not been inspected by the dealer. Through research, she found that numerous consumers were experiencing the same failure. The failure mileage was estimated at 25,000 and current mileage was 50,000. Updated 12/8/09 updated 12/09/09.

I have a 2005 Murano which just passed 35K in mileage, I also have the gold-preferred warranty. My issue is that the driver-side sunvisor suddenly stop working. It no longer stays in the "up" position. It is not covered by warranty. The visor is dropping down and causing a safety issue. I've heard that almost every third Nissan Murano of my year has this problem. I think it is clearly a mechanical failure. Thanks in advance.

Driver's side sun visor will not stay in the up position. Visor constantly falls down obscuring my vision while driving. I have read hundreds of blogs and forums where this is happening to other Murano owners. Now the visor will not even stay up. I had to remove it. Dealership wants 400$ to replace it. This is definitely a design flaw with this visor. Nissan should issue a recall. This is a mechanical flaw inside the visor.

I have a 2005 Nissan Murano whose sun visors drop down unexpectedly to block the drivers vision. I've checked many on-line forums and have found this to be a very common problem. I've also contacted Nissan the dealer refuses to correct it even though it is a safety issue and the company web site complaint form process doesn't reply. This will cause serious accidents why wait for people to die before action is taken to correct the problem.

My 2005 Nissan Murano has an issue with the driver side sun visor. It does not stay in the up position and falls into my line of sight. I have read that this is a common problem and it is very dangerous. Please take action against Nissan since they want consumers to pay for their mistakes. Yesterday I was driving and the visor fell into my line of sight. It distracted me enough that I had to slam on my brakes to avoid hitting a car.

The passenger side visor came lose and has now completely fallen off my 2005 Nissan Murano. This is a safety issue. At first the issue was I could not see because it would not stay up and now its still and issue because it came off and I can't block the sun when I am driving. Living in South Florida where the sun is always shining this is not safe for driving. There needs to be a recall for this. It's an obvious problem that most of us are having. I have had this problem for over two years and thought it was only me. Who knows how many people out there don't know that is a factory problem. What needs to happen, someone to get into a serious accident for Nissan to so something about it" they rather get sued for millions rather than taking care of this"

I have a 2005 Nissan Murano and I am having to replace both sun visors. The driver side sun visor was the first to go and does not stay in any position except straight down... this is causing me to look under it and is very irritating as well as a seeing hazard. The passenger sun visor also will not stay in the up position but at least stays in the extended position against the windshield. Nissan says this is not their problem and it's not covered under my extended warranty. I have to fork out $253 a piece for these sun visors and clearly there is a problem.

I have a 2005 Nissan Murano and the driver side sun visor will not stay in up position. When you put it in up position it just falls back down blocking the view of the driver. Nissan says this is not a warranty item and since no recalls have been issued they will charge to repair.

I have a 2005 Nissan Murano. At about 55,000 miles, the driver's side visor will not stay up - it falls at the least bump and blocks my vision. Very dangerous when driving in heavy traffic. This has been happening since at least the end of April. I was told my blackburn motors that it would cost me $296.01 plus labor to replace the visor. I have had old beater cars that have never had this problem. This is a dangerous problem and the manufacturer, Nissan, should replace this defective visors at their cost, not mine. If an accident occurs because of this defect, that is a bad mark against Nissan.

The contact owns a 2005 Nissan Murano. Whenever the vehicle is driven over any bumps at various speeds, the sun visor on the driver side falls into the contact's view of the road. The visor can only be put in the up position or the down position, and the level cannot be adjusted. The vehicle has not been diagnosed by the dealer. The current mileage was 65,000 and failure mileage was 40,000.
