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.

Both visors on my 2006 Nissan Murano have stopped working properly and become a safety hazard. This vehicle is only about 5 years old and already both visors have lost their tension causing them to fall down while driving, blocking the view of the driver. Also they will not stay where they are placed, so they do not serve the purpose of blocking the sun making them more hazardous. A complaint was filed with Nissan corporate (file number [xxx]) in March of 2010, but they denied the claim. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6)

The driver side sun visor on my 2006 Nissan Murano won't stay up anymore. Like the other complaints, it just drops down. On occasion, it will stay for a short while, only to drop into my line of sight while driving!! definitely safety hazard that Nissan needs to address.

Drivers side sun visor unexpectedly dropped down while driving. The visor will no longer stay in place, causing a significant safety hazard. Once back in place, the visor will drop down on its own. I have had to use a bungee cord that goes from the rear-view mirror across the visor to the driver's side ceiling handle.

Tla* the contact owns a 2006 Nissan Murano. While traveling at speeds of 10 mph and up, the driver?S side sun visor would fall without warning, obstructing the view of the driver. The vehicle was not taken to the dealer for further inspection of the failure. The manufacturer advised the vehicle was outside of factory warranty and would not provide any assistance. The failure and current mileages were 50,000.

Nissan Murano 2006; repeating sun visor failure on driver and passenger side began in late 2009; distracting during driving when visor drops in front of line of vision. Visors will not stay up and out of line of vision. This is a definite safety issue.

Driver's side sunvisor defect causes it to fall from the up position to the down position without warning, causing loss of full vision when driving. It occurs constantly. Nissan refuses to fix the problem at their expense. Cost to owner is $400 to replace this defective part.

2006 Nissan Murano drivers seat and sun visor. My 2006 Nissan Murano has had two parts fail that I believe are a safety concern and warrant a recall. The 1st part is the drivers seat. I'm not a large person but the left side seat bracket broke and now my seat rocks left and right. I can't raise the seat up and down because only the right side works. The seat also bounces up and down. Apparently this is a very common problem with the Murano and Nissan's excuse is "wear and tear." Seriously"?" Nissan offered to replace the driver's seat for $1000 +. the second part that has failed is the driver's sun visor. Whenever I hit a bump, the sun visor swivels down and totally blocks the drivers view out the window. This is not safe. Nissan offered to replace the sun-visor for $350.

The driver side sun visor on our 2005 Nissan Murano no longer stays in position. The visor will just 'flop' down when hitting a bump or any other abrupt maneuver. When the visor flops down the vision of the driver becomes impaired. The driver can push the visor back up into its original position but the visor will then just flop down again without warning. The dealer will not replace the visor under any warranty. The owner of the vehicle is expected to pay between $400-$460 for a new visor replacement.

On my 2006 Nissan Murano, the driver's side sun visor will only stay in the full up position or fully down. To drive in the sun, I hold the visor up with one hand. Dealer has replaced a clip, but that did not work. They say the only solution is to replace ($400 +) the sunvisor.

Purchased a 2006 Nissan Murano and now the driver's side visor drops down causing a safety hazard whenever I hit any type of bump or swerve in the road. The passenger one already had to be replaced for the same issue. The failure occurs every day, several times per day. In searching the internet, I am finding that this is a common problem with these visors. Should not have to pay $400+ to fix something that is a common problem and should have been fixed by Nissan a long time ago.
