2003 Nissan Murano Owner Comments

problem #3

May 282003


  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


Vehicle jerked violently then dies! dealer claims it is the crankshaft sensor. Replaced sensor. Happened 3-more times until manufacturer finally authorized complete replacement of sensor terminal connectors.it has been in the shop over 5-total weeks up till now including all 4 attempts to fix. They assured that this would fix the problem. However it happened again on 3/11/04. We have given the manufacturer its final opportunity before proceeding with our lemon law rights, they simply reacted by trying to find a loophole in the process, so we are now proceeding with legal action against Nissan now on our 5th time of this occurence.

3 times my Murano has stalled while driving and would not restart. All 3 times it has to be towed (over a 2 month period approx. 4K miles now, started at just over under 3K). The first 2 times, the engine would at least turn, but not start. The last time it would not even turn. It seems to be temporary because when the dealer loosk at the next day, it starts and they say they can't find anything wrong with it.

Murano 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 4,700 miles
I just bought a 2003 Nissan Murano, recently I have had a few problems with the car. First problem, after driving about 30 miles and then shutting the engine off and then turning on the alarm. After about ten minutes I would disable the alarm and start the car. The car will not start it doesn't even turnover. This has happened twice once when my wife was driving it and when I was driving it. Luckily it happened to start for my wife after several tries. Can someone please investigate this defect? by the way, I had to get the car towed to dealer and it is still there.
