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.

While operating the vehicle the sun visor drops down unexpectedly, completely obstructing the driver's view. This has occurred approximately four times since the first incident approximately four days ago. When this happens the driver's view of the road is completely obstructed and due to the sudden and unexpected nature of the sun visor dropping down this could easily cause an accident. It is very frightening when it happens.

The driver side sun visor will no longer stay up. While you are driving it drops down into your eyeline impairing your visibility. They same thing happened to my passenger side but the vehicle was still under warranty so they covered it. I believe this is a defect and can be a danger. I have spoken with numerous other Murano owners who are experiencing the same problem. Nissan has no intention of fixing this problem. I guess they are waiting for more accidents to happen.

I purchased a 2006 Nissan Murano brand new. After doing a little research, I understand that my compliant has been documented numerous times, by many consumers and that an investigation by NHTSA has been completed and closed. With that said, a new investigation into the matters needs to occur and Nissan needs to issue a recall. The visor on the driver's side continues to flop down, causing limited visibility when driving. This impairs visibility when driving, which is a major safety concern and although it seems that the defect hasn't resulted in a casualty yet, it is only a matter of time before someone is seriously injured from this defect. Next, the seat anchor bracket/frame on my driver's side seat is broken and has caused the seat to lean to the left considerably. The seat is unstable and rocks back and forth while driving, which again, is a safety concern. The investigation into this matter by NHTSA indicated that the problem results from metal fatigue. When in automobile history has this occurred? as I understand, it will cost over $1,000 to get this fixed. Nissan needs to issue a recall and take responsibility for its manufacturing defects. I hope they are not waiting until someone actually dies before they realize these defects are a major safety hazard.

Murano

  • 77,000 miles
I am having problems with the drivers side sun visor in my Nissan Murano. It will just drop down suddenly. At first I was able to pull the visor down and move it forward to help protect my eyes from the sun. But that didn't last long since it will just fall straight down and block my view. When it falls I can not see the cars in front of me. I am not a tall person but I would have to be extremely small to see under the visor when it falls in straight down position. The other day, I was driving on the freeway and my sun visor suddenly dropped straight down.it really startled me cause I lost visibility. I screamed cause I could not see the cars in front of me like I mentioned earlier. As quickly as I could I lifted the visor and held it in place and continued by journey. It was pretty nerve wracking. I could have gotten into an accident and injured my passengers, myself and other drivers. And with traveling at high speed it's was an extremely dangerous situation. My dealer said the cost to repair would be around $500. I feel Nissan should take responsibility for this and issue a recall but I haven't seen any yet. This sun visor issue is very dangerous to all of us out there on the road drivers and passengers.I hope something can be done about this. Thank you for listening.

Murano 6-cyl

  • 74,900 miles
Driver's side visor dropped by itself from storage up position to almost completely block my view of the road while traveling in traffic. Could not see where I was going for a few seconds until I ducked down to see the road. Visor would not stay up or stay in any reasonable position such that it could be used for driving. Since that original incident, has happened many times - checking with Nissan yielded no satisfactory response. This is a serious safety issue, and based on reviewing online forums, is a pervasive problem for many, many Nissan Murano owners. As far as I can tell there has been no recall. Additionally, other owners report that replacing the part is only a temporary fix. The problem has also now been occurring wit the passenger side visor.
