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.

2007 Nissan Murano Owner Comments

  • 122,000 miles


My Nissan Murano has 122,000 miles on car and I have already spent a lot of money repairing cvt's, front end issues and had to purchase a new transmission. I was on the interstate and had to drive slow all the way to my home. No accident but Nissan Murano has a lot of issues with the front wheels and transmission.

The contact owns a 2007 Nissan Murano. While driving various speeds, the vehicle stalled without warning. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for diagnostic testing, which could not be performed until an ABS wheel sensor was repaired. The vehicle was previously serviced per NHTSA campaign number: 09V169000(engine and engine cooling); however, the vehicle continued to fail after the repair. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 114,000.

Driver's seat - the bracket in the rear left that supports the seat broke while driving. Air bags - the air bag light is on and will not go away. When I purchased the vehicle in Feb. 2016, the dealer assured me it was just a glitch in the display. Engine - started running rough about a week ago, while we were headed out of town. Cancelled that trip. Threw a "cylinder 3 misfire" code. My husband replaced that plug and coil and it continued to run rough. Today, it overheated and started dumping fluid on the ground. The suspension is also failing. When we hit a bump or pothole, it feels like the front end is going to fall off. I loved this car when we bought it and when it runs right, but right now, I am completely disgusted. I have only owned it for two months. I feel like we were robbed and we aren't in the financial standing to replace it.

I was recently told that I need to replace my "motor mounts." My engine has always shifted whenever I put the vehicle into drive. It has been like this for about 2 years now.

All motor mounts and transmission mounts failed at 65,000 and brought into repair at 74,000 miles. Extreme scary vibration when driving. Thump and clunking and banging sound on engine when depressing the gas pedal. Very expensive $2,900 repair at Nissan dealer.

I've only been driving my 2007 Nissan Murano car that I recently purchased used for 3 weeks. I was driving on the road and suddenly my car started jerking, shaking, smoking from under the hood then it abruptly stopped in the middle of traffic on a busy road. The car shut down and would not start again. I called the police, they blocked the lane I was in and called a local tow truck service that I had to pay for out of pocket because it was an emergency dangerous situation to get it off the road as soon as possible and the police could not chance to wait for my insurance company to send a tow service.

  • 130,000 miles
As I was driving in traffic (approximately 35 mph), I applied the brakes at the stoplight and there was a sudden loud sound coming from the engine. When I applied the gas, there was no power, but the engine continued to rev up. With cars flying by me, this was terrifying for me and my granddaughters. I took it to the dealership and they misdiagnosed the problem, twice. Over the next few weeks, my Murano began to randomly skip/hesitate with standard RPM and extremely high RPM. The local Nissan dealership had my car for over a month, saying they had replaced the transmission. The only problem is the "problem " is there, still there. Also there is no guarantee/warranty on warranted work. I now have nothing.and scared to drive my car that it will fail in traffic.

On the way home from Nissan sevice car stopped had to be towed. Nissan shop diagnosis 3 cam sensors needed replacing. $789 labor cost and niqssan parts total less than $350. Always serviced at the garage and was going to purchase a new one. Now definitely out of the question after this treatment. The car stalled in the middle of the expressway thank you

Started making a noise as a flat tire, I parked it. Next day I took it to the shop, Nissan dealership, they said is the transfer case and want $ 3,500 to fix it, I researched on this issue and found lots, too many people complaining of this issue, Nissan has to be aware of the bad quality of their product and assume the their part on it, or people will have to spend lots of money on this. Thank you

There has been oil leaking from my oil tank for over a year. I went to a shop and they told me it is the O-ring or seal on the oil tank and that they tend to go on this model car. It is a $400 fix. If this is common in the Muranos it should be a recall, we shouldn't have to responsible for the cost.

While driving on four lane blvd the engine sudden cut off at a major intersection. I was lucky not to be hit by truck behind me, I had no prior warning no engine light, rough idle etc. The 2007 Nissan Murano sudden engine cut off need to be investigate because this could have been a fatality.

Murano 6-cyl

  • 127,000 miles
While driving on the highway I noticed the brake warning light and battery warning light came on. I proceeded to drive for about 15minutes and all of a sudden the engine cut off and all power was lost, no ignition power no power steering. Good thing I was not in the center lane or I would have been hit from behind with my child in the car. I see there has been a similar recall# 36089 on the 2004 Nissan Murano. The 2007 Nissan Murano should also be looked into because this could easily become a fatality issue!

The oil pan is so corroded that the oil bleeds through the bottom of the oil pan. There is an enamel or powder type coating on the oil pan that is gone. It's only 7 years old and should not happen with the vehicle being as new as it is. Oil pan should be a sturdy part of your car as it on the bottom of the engine and holds critical fluids. This type of leak could be a fire safety issue.
