Murano 6-cyl

  • miles
The iron bracket on the passenger side of the seat if broken. The dealership stated that it was normal wear and tear. The vehicle (Nissan Murano 2005) should be able to withstand more that just 2 years of use. I have further proof where other owners of the same vehicle have experienced the same problem on the driver's side of the vehicle. I also had purchase extended warranty on the vehicle and the dealership stated I didn't have it, and it is not covered. I know there is something that can be done. I have contact an attorney for further assistance.

I heard about the breaking of the driver seat, it just happened to me on my 2005 Nissan Murano. First the seat would be lose like excessive movement for some time, then all of the sudden it will eventually break. I am about 250 ponds and that dose not seam to be excessive enough to break the back bottom cross bar under the drivers seat. (I'm sure this is a expensive repair) this was very dangerous and scary for someone who is unsuspecting of this issue. Thanks for reading.

Jan 022008

Murano 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 41,500 miles
The driver's seat suddenly broke, which startled me and caused me and the seat to lean back and to the left. The seat seems to be anchored on the right, but is loose on the back left, so it now rocks back and forth - especially when cornering. I read online of many other instances of this occurring with other Nissan Murano owners but there does not yet seem to be a recall. There is, however, a Nissan tsb out on this subject, #05-043C.

Murano 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 51,100 miles


11/27/07 problem: Air bag light flashing. (two occurrences) diagnostic conducted 11/25/07 and 11/27/07. At the first service dealer could not determine diagnostic codes and I was asked to bring vehicle in 11/27/07 a complete diagnostic was conducted. According to dealership diagnostic codes the passenger side seat needs to be replaced with costs exceeding $1000. The seats, thus far appear to be in tack. What does seat cushion have to do with airbag or its sensor? the vehicle is less than years 2 years new with approx. 51,000 miles. Concerns: Vehicle safety and proper deployment of airbags. I was informed by dealership that this is common in Muranos and pathfinders. If so, why hasn't there been a recall w/O costs to consumer. After reviewing similar complaints submitted by other consumers, it appears to me that safety concerns exists including but not limited to the risks of injury to a passenger. In addition, the actual cause and final repair resolution remains unknown and unresolved. (see other consumer complaint no. 10208537) it is not a coincidence that my vehicle's airbag indicator failed around the same mileage as the other. Who is to say that the airbag will not malfunction in case of accident? (please also see consumer complaint no 10199625 & C.C. no. 10196794)

Murano 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 25 miles


While driving the car, my front seat suddenly broke pitting me towards the driver side window. Seat was leaning toward the driver side window. On Wednesday, October 17, 2007 brought my 2005 Nissan Murano to the Nissan dealer located in morristown, NJ (open road Nissan service department). I was told that the driver side seat frame broke. In order to fix the driver side seat frame of the vehicle, the cost to would be $900 plus dollars. What if I were in an accident - this seat may have been a factor to serious injury. Why is a seat frame breaking on a vehicle with 48,500 miles - not yet three years old. I keep my cars for more than 10 years and no vehicle I ever owned did a seat just break. Seems to me this is a dangerous situation that needs to be reviewed on Nissan Muranos. I am very concerned for safety of this vehicle.
