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.

Driver's side sun visor suddenly drops in front of driver's field of view. The visor will not remain in the up or "stowed" position when the vehicle is in motion. Visibility is 0% and only remedy is to hold the visor up with one hand and steer vehicle with the other.

On my 2006 Nissan Murano, the driver's side sun visor will not stay in the up position and causes difficulty seeing. I either have to "hunch down" to see well or hold the visor up with one hand.

The driver side sun visor on my 2006 Murano is defective and Nissan's gold extended warranty and Nissan Corp is claiming this shouldn't be covered. This is clearly a defective mechanical problem with the visor which should be covered; considering it blocks the drivers view while driving when it abruptly comes down Nissan should take great care in taking care of this issue. This is something I've complained about since 2008 when it started with a small rattling sound coming from the mechanism but the dealership refused to admit the problem was the visor and tried to point to the plastic clip holding the visor in place. It would tragic for someone to experience and accident for this problem and it would be great if someone would put this issue under review as soon as possible.

Driver's side sun visor does not stay in a static position. Visor can either be locked upright, or if unlocked and in use, falls straight down blocking the view of the road. The visor falls every time I use it, and I can not get it to stay put. I was told the visor was outside of my warranty and would cost approximately $400 to replace. I see several other complaints online about the exact same problem.

The driver side sun visor on my 2006 Nissan Murano is defective and is no longer covered under the manufacturer warranty. It has not been overused, however, the visor falls abruptly at various times while driving blocking the driver's vision momentarily. It has not caused an accident, however, driving with it as it is can possibly cause an accident during that moment of obstructed vision while driving on a highway, especially at night time. The dealer or the extended warranty for my vehicle does not cover this cost and the replacement cost is ridiculously expensive.

My 2006 Nissan Murano sun visor will not stay up, it will drop down at will and block drivers view. A real safety issue. Nissan is aware of the problem but will not do anything about it. It is on several year models of Nissan, especially the Murano. Dealer wants $450 to replace it.

Driver side sun visor does not stay in position. This causes impairment of driver line of sight. Nissan charges $500 for part alone and is not dealing with it as a safety/warranty issue.

2006 Nissan Murano: Driver side sun visor will not stay in the up position. Flops down half way impeding line of sight through windshield. This is a safety hazard. Nissan will not replace the part free of charge even though this seems to be a common problem and is charging $400 for this part.

Approx 8/2009 I had my driver side visor replaced after sudden failure to remain upright. It would flop down while driving to block expected view and/or stay at an angle that would have hit me right in the middle of my forehead, being tall, as is my husband, should an accident cause any forward body movement. Nissan has replaced the driver side under warranty and now just 1 day ago the passenger side also did the exact same failure. My husband was the passenger and he kept saying "boy I don't like this would catch me right in the middle of my forehead if we got hit" it won't stay up so it has to always stay down now which restricts night time driving. I "googled" Murano visor complaints and there are many of the exact same complaints!!! I would like to request you review this as a big danger for visual restriction during night or sudden unexpected limits during day driving upon dropping down and possible facial injury upon any impact. Thank you very much.

2006 Nissan Murano sunvisors (driver and passenger) continually drop down during driving. They rotate from a "up" position to a "down" position on their own. Average road vibration / driving conditions constantly causes this to happen. Once the visors are "down", they block the view of the road while driving. These are not covered under normal factory warranty or extended warranty. Part cost for each visor is $400 from Nissan....does not include installation costs. Nissan will not replace these under recall / warranty / tsb. Looking to get resolution to this problem, as it seems to be rather widespread / occurring amongst fellow Murano owners.

I own a 2006 Nissan Murano that has a defective part in the driver's side visor causing it to fall in the driver's face. The only way to fix is to use velcro or hold up with one hand while driving. This is dangerous as the velcro is only a temporary fix as it is not strong enough to hold up the heavy visor and continually falls in the face of the driver. The visor malfunction started happening around 50K miles and is not covered under Nissan's warranty. The visor can be replaced, but at a cost of near $500. I feel that this defect in the visor should be covered by Nissan as it is a safety hazard while driving. I believe this to be a widespread problem as I have read similar complaints on Nissan auto forums.

The driver side sunvisor on my 2006 Nissan Murano refuses to stay up and continually drops in front of my face while driving unless I hold it with one hand. Nissan knows the problem and refuses to help for less than $400-$500.

While driving my 2006 Murano, I went over a set of train tracks which is quickly followed by an intersection. Just before I hit the tracks, a car pulled out in front of me from the upcoming intersection. As I went over the tracks applying the brakes, the drivers side sunvisor dropped obstructing my view of traffic. I nearly missed an accident. The sunvisor falling into the drivers view at random is a definite problem. I have searched the forums online and found this to be a common problem for the sunvisors to fail. A replacement at the dealer is about $500. Nissan does not see the safety issue in this and will not replace the dangerous sunvisors once out of the 3 year 36000 mile warranty. Mine failed at 3 years and 2 months, with 32000 miles on the vehicle. I tell you about the one time I almost was in a serious accident because of the sunvisor, but it falls down in my face on a regular basis. About every 20 or so minutes of driving. Nissan needs to recall their dangerous sunvisors, they can drop down in the drivers view at any time. I nearly hit a lady in the drivers door.

  • 55,000 miles
Driver's-side visor suddenly became unable to stay at a secure angle, which causes a recurring visibility problem. It no longer stays at a secure position if it is not flipped up flat against the headliner. This precludes using it as intended to block sun from shining directly into driver's eyes. If not flat against the headliner, it only hangs straight down and completely blocks line-of-sight while driving, regardless of whether the visor's end is secured or not in its clip. To avoid sun shining directly and unsafely into eyes, it's necessary to hold the visor at necessary angle with one hand, leaving only one hand on the steering wheel. It may sound like a minor problem - - until you regularly experience having to make a choice between being literally blinded by the sun while driving or having to use one hand to hold the visor up. It is no longer covered by my now-expired 36 mo/3 yr warranty. Dealers estimate to repair: $400.
