problem #6

Oct 122004

Murano 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 13,000 miles


Alternator failed while driving on the highway. Luckily I was in bumper to bumper traffic so the speed was only about 10 mph but I think that had I been going 65 that the potential for an accident etc. Would be very likely. You lose all ability to accelerate, imagine pulling off onto a street with a failure like this and a car coming in the other direction? steering is slighly compromised as well. Again, I was lucky and coasted to the side of the road, someone else may not be as lucky. Pe04077_cat

Alternator failed and car stopped in the middle of the freeway during night time while I am driving a car. Thankfully I pulled my car to the side of the freeway and called 911, because I had no lights at all because my car totally died and I had a baby and a wife in the back seat. Pe04077_cat

Murano 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,698 miles
I own a Nissan Murano 2004 automobile. Since Oct. 6 2004 I have had a battery & brake light come on & off. On Oct. 9 within the morning time frame the battery, brake, ABS and airbag light came on right before I stopped at a stop sign. Once I came to a complete stop I pressed on the gas pedal and the car engine revved up but the Murano went no where. I shut off the car and turned it back on and the car did not want to start at all. I tried boosting it and the Murano did turn on but the car did not go anywhere. I did send it the nearest dealership and Nissan of jersey city, N.J. did fix my problem in a very quick manner. It seemed to be a alternator problem. They have replaced my alternator with an updated version. Pe04077_cat

Murano 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 12,100 miles


I recently had my 2004 Murano at 12,000 miles towed to the dealership. The brake light and battery light went on, on the way to work in the morning and continued to be on all day. Being that there was no sign of trouble except for the warning light and no Nissan dealership in the area of where I work I proceeded through my day. I headed home and came to a stop sign and went to go accelerate and went no where as if I was in neutral. I idled to the side of the road so I could turn the truck on and off and still I could not accelerate. I idled to my house fortunately was around the corner and called the dealership. The service person asked if I could go in reverse so I tried and I could. I put it in drive and surprisingly was able to go forward so I was told to bring it in immediately. On my way to the dealership on the highway doing 65 to 70 in the evening traffic went to accelerate and went no where!!! I was in the middle of traffic doing 5 mph with no way getting to the shoulder which was so dangerous. Finally a kind person let me go idle to the side to where I could call a tow truck. As I was sitting waiting for a tow truck, I tried to turn the truck on but it would not turn over. It seems to me that this problem is not being remedied as it should be before a person losses a life. This is a serious problem that is continuing through the models. It is being over looked at the expense of the consumer. I am paying for a car that has a great reputation as I were to think. Pe04077_cat
