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 #144

Oct 012010


  • 95,000 miles


While driving on the freeway, my drivers seat mounting bracket broke (left rear bracket mount weld). This caused me to cross the lane and almost side swipe another vehicle. Nissan will not cover and has no recall for this obvious safety issue. I am now forced to drive a vehicle which rocks back and forth while operating it. This is an identified manufacturing flaw and should have an immediate recall, before a fatality occurs!!!

The contact owns 2006 Nissan Murano. While driving approximately 28 mph the drivers seat started squeaking followed by a loud popping sound. The contact pulled over and checked underneath the seat and noticed that the drivers seat was broken. The seat leaned towards the drivers door and there was no support on the left side of the seat. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who stated that the welding on the base of the seat was broken and quoted her the repair cost. The contact notified Nissan and she was expecting a return call from them. The failure mileage was 71,000.

Murano 6-cyl

  • 52,888 miles
The driver's seat is loose tilts back and to the left when I sit in it. Took it in and was told that it was a broken "lift assembly". the repairs would cost $1200. This is a severe safety issue, that should never happen. My Murano has never been in an accident and only has 52,888. When I called Nissan they said she had never heard of it"!?!?! sure.... there are over 135 complaints on here, and many of them had nearly had accidents. What does it take for Nissan to step-up and take action for their poor engineering?!" ridiculous!

The driver's seat jammed in one position and will not move forward or backward. Took vehicle to a Nissan dealer and was told that the weld on the frame broke and because they could not warrant welding it I would have to replace the entire frame, which included all motors and electrical components and the cost would be $1,400. I thought the cost was astronomical for something that should have never happened. I did not have it repaired, but now obviously my concern is that the seat may break away from the frame completely and cause a serious accident. After my wife and I went online and viewed so many complaints about the same problem, I feel that Nissan should be responsible for the repairs. There have been too many similar incidents for this not to be considered a safety default!

Murano 6-cyl

  • 70,000 miles
I purchased this vehicle used, but after checking the internet found it is a common problem with this vehicle. A few months after purchasing this vehicle my fiance noticed that the drivers seat was "wiggling" and didn't seem right. We brought it to a repair shop and they stated that the rail that holds the seat in place had broke. They welded it but stated it may happen again.

Murano 6-cyl

  • 60,000 miles
While pulling into traffic I heard a slight "pop" sound at which point the power driver's seat dropped towards the door. I tried readjusting the seat but as I tried to raise the seat the left side would not come back to level. After parking the car, I looked under the seat to find the seat bracket was broken. I was surprised how long it had lasted without braking after observing how small gauge of metal used. Had this happened in heavy traffic on the interstate, there is a good possibility of a serious accident.

2006 Murano SE issue- driver seat rocks and when I come to a complete stop the seat tilts forward and when making left turns the seat tilts to the side. This is very dangerous and almost caused a severe accident.

2006 Nissan Murano; driver's seat fell down at the rear of the seat. Dealer states that it is a commonly known failure of the seat's "lift assembly". thankfully, I was on a straight road and no other vehicles were nearby when it happened. I swerved at the time and strained to pull over safely B/C I couldn't reach the pedals very well with the seat in the awkward position it was in. For sure, this could have been a disaster, and is a disaster waiting to happen on many vehicles. It's my understanding that poor manufacturing is to blame. Really, this should be recalled and replaced. What a danger!

Murano 6-cyl

  • 82,000 miles
Driver's seat rear tube is broken on left side after 82 kmiles of normal driving on paved roads only, mostly highway. Both drivers weigh less than 190 lbs. Material strength / thickness is insufficient for the loads the tube needs to carry at that location. The whole seat (cushion and backrest) rotates up/down about the front and to the left approx. 4-5 inches when the backrest is pushed lightly toward mid car direction. This is a major safety issue. It's surprising that the seat passed FMVSS 208/301 (dynamic front and rear crash tests) during dv and pv. Ok so new carefully assembled seat frames must have passed those tests, but isn't Nissan also responsible to ensure the built-in seat safety factor is high enough to overcome manufacturing tolerances and fatigue issues from normal driving for production seat frames such that under a front or a rear crash event the seats actually do provide some protection and at least do not increase the danger to the driver and the passengers? this is faulty engineering. There are many cases for pre-2008 model Murano with this problem on the internet and, I assume, in your database. To ensure Nissan and other vehicle manufacturers design for fatigue, manufacturing tolerances and/or quality, NHTSA should prompt a safety recall. Customers should not have to pay >$1000 to fix a seat that Nissan pays less than $150 to assemble in the vehicle, as this would be equivalent to rewarding and supporting faulty engineering.

Murano 6-cyl

  • 45,000 miles
Got in 2006 Nissan Murano and sat on driver's seat when the seat collapsed to the left side and rear of the seat. Had this happened while driving it could have been very startling and cause a collision. I took it in to Nissan dealer where I bought it. They said they had seen and repaired several others. They indicated on the receipt that "found that the seat frame had broken on the weld on the left rear of the seat. Removed and repaired seat and welded the frame back together".

2006 Nissan Murano drivers seat broke and has separated from the track, therefore allowing the seat to tilt side to side with any turn. Nissan does not want to admit there is a problem with the seat but apparently there is a problem with this seat breaking in the Murano. I have asked them to split the cost with me and they refuse to do so. With all the info out on the internet associated with this problem I think they should be forced to do a recall and admit the problem.
