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 seat anchor failure driver seat collapsed towards driver door while driving from pa. To fl. On I-95. Loud pop under seat when incident occurred. I will have it repaired before I return to pa. According to your bulletin: NHTSA / PE 08065. The number of complaints are high but you closed this issue on 7/2/09. If you look further you will find this problem has been going on since 2005 with only several accidents reported. No fatalities yet. Please check the arfc web site for another 267 complaints. This finding needs to be reopened and is a safety issue that needs to be addressed. Had I not reacted swiftly while in motion I would not be sending you this complaint, my attorney would with a copy to my congressman and Nissan.

Turning a corner on parking lot. Heard a lot pop and my seat collapsed, shifting me into the driver's side door. The seat fell to the floor and rocks every time I drive over uneven pavement and/or makes turns. I almost control of my vehicle when this happened.

The seat based weld failed on the left rear corner causing an unsafe condition. In researching this issue, there are many, many similar incidents reported on the web. This should be a recall condition as it renders the vehicle unsafe to drive. I shudder to think what would happen if my 17 year-old new driver was in an accident...the seat could easily break loose.

Murano 6-cyl

  • 75,000 miles
The drivers seat bracket failed prematurely. The drivers seat broke towards the back left corner closest to the passenger door and the seat currently rocks corner to corner. The welding of the frames cross member snapped apart while in park, right before putting the vehicle in drive. This issue could have happened while driving and is a huge concern and apparently (according to others online) is a common defect/flaw of the 2003-2007 Muranos.

While driving to work I heard a loud pop inside the car and all of a sudden the drivers seat leaned to the back left and I had to brace myself and the car from swerving. As I continued to drive the seat kept rocking side to side on the left. When I got to work and parked I noticed the seat was tilted and lose. This is extremely dangerous to anyone driving as I almost got into an accident when bracing myself as a result of the seat breaking. This is a serious safety issue that needs to be repaired by Nissan.

Seat frame part failure. At first the seat leaned then within a few days broke. This must be a huge safety issue that can cause an accident if it breaks while driving or accident occurs before seat is fixed. I spoke to a few Nissan dealerships who were all fully aware and have seen this same broken part often. Nissan does not cover this part. I feel this should be recalled asap due to the safety issue. Nissan should pay for this repair.

I was driving my Murano today when all of a sudden I heard a loud pop and then my seat began to rock. The left frame on the driver's side had broken and I did not think this was possible. I see from this website that there are many other Murano drivers out there that this is happened to and that they have contacted Nissan and they didnt care! this is a major safety issues and it this problem needs to be recalled and fixed! this is totally unacceptable and Nissan should be ashamed! they are putting our lives and others are risk! heaven forbid that the right side of the frame go. I am calling Nissan tomorrow! there should be a class action suit against them! I will never buy another Nissan again! they should not make the consumer responsible for their shotty work and they should fix it for free!

Murano 6-cyl

  • 55,306 miles
I was driving on the highway when the incident occurred. I brake because there was traffic ahead when all of a sudden I felt a pop and the seat dipped down and back. I almost crashed due to the distraction of the seat braking and bracing myself so that I didn't fall. The seat then began to rock back and forth. I had to sustain the seats with bricks underneath the seat so that I can be able to drive. I immediately went to the dealer and the response from the dealer was that they are aware of the issue and that the other replacement seats have the same issue. He basically told me "don't waste your money on a new seat because it will happen again". this is a very serious safety hazard and is beyond me that Nissan will not do a recall on this! it is amazing that someone has to die in order for something to happen.
