2004 Nissan Murano Owner Comments

problem #5

Dec 242016


  • 140,000 miles


On busy fast California freeway when traffic slowed, so did I, then I went to speed up to keep up with traffic and my car would not move. I was pressing accelerator and my car literally was not moving! my check service engine light came on (no warning, just now) I was so scared! I put my hazards on, and I had to drive a few miles going 25 mph, and making my way across lanes to get off the freeway to safety. Once off freeway I pulled over and turned car off. When assistance arrived my Nissan Murano started fine and appeared ok. I drove to hotel and as I was in the middle of a busy intersection making a left turn, I pressed the accelerator and my car did not move! it then stalled and by now the light turned red and I was sitting in the middle of the intersection! I started my car and it zoomed pretty quick. Problem is, I cannot drive a car I cannot trust. This is a death trap waiting to happen. I noticed so many others have experienced this, so I wonder why this vehicle was never recalled for this?? I have maintained my Murano very good, I have always backed and believed in Nissan- now I wonder. On xma eve it did this, as I went to proceed on a green light. It was night, raining, windy and my car finally died. I put on hazards, but I was in dangerous location- in middle of road. I got out of my car and waited for help.

Fuel tank protector 2004 Murano: There was a recall on my vehicle and a plastic fuel tank protector was added. This repair reduces the ground clearance and the has broken twice on my 2004 Murano. Any road debris is likely to hit this low point on the vehicle. The manufacturer should inspect these regularly or come up with a better fix. One can guess that there are vehicles that had the protector added and that protector has subsequently been broken and fallen off. I did call 1-800-nissan1 to request reimbursement for the failed protector and the company kindly agreed to make the reimbursement. Further, santa barbara Nissan agreed to install the protector free of charge.

At 90,000mi needed motor mounts, control arms, and front end is still nothing to write home about. It won't take gas and it bucks.

Murano 6-cyl

  • 98,000 miles
Due to a recall a plastic shield was installed a few years ago by dealer to protect the fuel tank from road debris. Something must have hit the shield causing four of the 6 plastic fasteners to break off or fail due to age. The shield was dangling on passenger side. I purchased and installed replacement fasteners. Most people will not know to inspect for this leaving the tank exposed. I think Nissan's solution is inadequate. The shield should be more robust. Perhaps metal with metal fasteners? I also think this should be a recall of the recall.
