I own a 2004 Nissan Murano, and today after only owning the car for less than a year, the driver seat (automatic) broke and is leaning to the left. I am covered under an extended warranty and this problem will be covered by Nissan, but to those many owners of this vehicle that this has happened too, I feel obligated to report this issue. I feel this is a driving hazard and could cause a serious accident or even death. When the seat broke, I was in moving traffic of around 45 miles an hour, and I almost swerved to the left and hit a car. This is a parts issue that Nissan should cover. I think it would be unjust to allow Nissan to not recall this item and repair this item for free. I weigh less than 185, so I doubt this problem was due to weight issues. It's a defective parts issue. Please contact Nissan to get this corrected.

I have a 2004 Nissan muruno and the passenger seat started making a clicking sound everytime I would turn, but at that time I did not know what it was. Then a few weeks later the I was driving and made had to stop abruptly and the seat broke. Then my seat was leaning to the side. When I took it to the dealership in raleigh, nc on wake forest road. I was told that I would have to buy a brand new chair. Which I think that they quoted me $800 then that was not including labor. That was almost 2 years ago. I am still riding with my seat leaning to the side.

I have a 2004 Nissan Murano. The power drivers seat will only move on the left side and the right side is stuck. Upon taking it to the dealer, I was informed the gear on the right side was stripped, and it would be $1,000 + to fix this. I had the vehicle in multiple times under warranty for the seat slipping when I took-off from a stop sign, and was told it was operating as designed. I am concerned that in an accident this seat is not going to remain in place and it will result in major injuries.

I have a 2004 Nissan Murano which my wife and I love, but we have recently developed a problem that we haven't experienced before. The left side of the power drivers seat broke and the ride is very dangerous and unstable. I can only imagine what I will face if I ever have to suddenly stop my car. I'm currently searching for someone local that can weld the seat back to its base, but cost is a factor and so is time. It seems that this is a manufacture defect, and perhaps there should be some sort of recall to correct this issue before someone gets hurt and has to sue Nissan.
