The contact owns a 2005 Nissan Murano. While driving 20 mph the vehicle began to shimmy and then stall. The ABS, brake, and air bag light illuminated on the instrument control panel, and then the battery would loose power. His vehicle identification number was excluded from recall # 05V319000 (electrical system:alternator/generator/regulator), therefore he was ineligible for a free remedy. The current mileage was 51,500. The failure mileage was 50,000.

Murano 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 7,358 miles


The current description has to do with mechanical defects: I leased a brand new 2005 Nissan Murano in April 2005, and in August of that year the car had major mechanical malfunctions that included: ABS light came on, internal failure of ABS actuator, and right front ABS sensor, engine probelms with loss of power, and acceleration. Nono current through pin connectors. Had to replace ECM. Engine light came on, internal failure to throttle body, all wheel drive light came on. They replaced the alternator, I also had internal failure of A/C amplifier. My car was in the shop from 8/5/05 - 9/13/05 a total of 39 days! I called Nissan about complying with the lemon law and to now they have declined to cooperate. I am currently seeking legal representation in this matter.

Murano 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 7,000 miles
The caller stated while driving at 55 mph the headlights came on and the engine stalled. The caller took vehicle to the dealer, and was told there was a recall on the alternator, and the dealer replaced it. 10 days later the vehicle stalled again. The caller had a close call. Dealer said he was too busy to look at vehicle. Dealer had vehicle since Saturday and he has not looked at it yet. Manufacturer said they will get back to the caller in a few days.

Murano 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 7,180 miles
My 6-month pregnant wife was driving our new Murano when all the sudden the car's service engine light went on and the car wouldn't go beyond a few miles an hour on the interstate. Although she made it home safe, when we had it towed to the dealer they told us that there was nothing wrong with the car. Since their computer didnt recognize a problem, the technician wouldnt look at it. A few weeks later, the same thing happened again to us and when we took it in again the dealer seemed ignorant of the recall. We received the recall notice in between incidents and couldnt get an appt right away. When I showed him the form, he said that the alternator probably didnt need to be replaced but that they'd look at it. It's frustrating that we have to fight so much to get this issue resolved.
