The seat then broke, pushing her toward the steering wheel and injuring her as well. The contact called the dealer and was told that the vehicle was no longer under warranty. The vehicle had not been repaired. The failure mileage was unknown and the current mileage was approximately 74,000.

Driver's seat left side link and motor assemblies have failed resulting in seat tipping sideways from left to right when turning right. The shoulder and lap belt locks to the now moving seat resulting in an unsafe condition should the vehicle be involved in an accident.

While driving at highway speeds about 3 weeks ago my seat (drivers seat) suddenly sloped into the driver side door. Pulling over I discovered that the bottom left rear corner of main seat bracket broke off in two places. The problem was corrected by having a body shop weld the pieces together with additional support metal.

The drivers' seat in our 2006 Nissan Murano came un-welded. This failure was not due to any out of the ordinary use as this vehicle is a daily driver. We had approximately 80K miles on the car when suddenly our seat started to rock back and forth in a caddy corner motion. Dealer said he had seen about 60 of these in the last few months and offered no complimentary part for replacement. We purchased the 100K mile extended warranty so we only had to pay $50 to have it fixed. Seriously though, a seat coming un-welded? makes my stomach sick to know that this is still an issue as well as the thought of what if... please look into this issue and make Nissan correct this issue with an otherwise trouble-free car.

I own a 2006 Nissan Murano and today as I was turning onto a busy freeway (with 2 of my grandchildren in the car), my driver's side seat came loose from the floor of the car. This is definitely not acceptable for a car that has only 53,000 miles on it. I reviewed your website and saw hundreds of complaints about this. I noticed that nothing has been done. Is this because there were no deaths or injuries" I would hope a recall is issued before somebody has blood on their hands. Are you anywhere near a recall on this safety issue"

The contact owns a 2006 Nissan Murano. The contact stated that the front drivers seat rocks from left to right and she was able to pull it near the door and lift it up. Nissan was contacted and stated that the repairs would be $580, and they would take $250 off of the cost. When she took the vehicle in for repairs the mechanic stated that the original diagnosis was incorrect and the repair cost would be over $900 and the parts would need to be ordered. The vehicle was currently at the owners home. The current and failure mileages were 103,000.

I was driving my 2006 Murano S model when suddenly the driver seat lurched down to the left. It had a broken weld in the seat frame. The current mileage was approximately 56,000. I would hope that a new investigation can be initiate. That is a serious safety issue.

  • 46,500 miles
Driver's side left rear seat hinge broke in two pieces. No extreme wear or tear done to this seat, and the metal broke. The consequences of this problem are obvious, if ever in an accident or simply normal driving, the safety of the seat is compromised. Nissan charges around $1000 to have this repaired. Seat brackets should never fail, especially not in the numbers being reported.

Add me to the list of 2006 Nissan Murano owners who have issues with the drivers seat frame/bracket/anchor/rail that breaks or fails. Our vehicle was actually in an accident prior to the failure and initially we were told that it was due to the accident. However the local Nissan shop guru indicates that it is not related to the accident. The extended warranty that was purchased of course does not cover this even though there is a picture of the seat on the brochure. Like others have been told $1000+ to repair. I would hope that the NHTSA would re-open their investigation as it was closed on 7/2/09 and it appears this issue takes a couple of years to manifest. Out of the 108 complaints registered 23 were prior to the date the investigation was opened 11/18/08, so 85 were after that or more than three times the number of complaints. My hope is that they re-open the investigation due to ongoing complaints relating to an obvious safety issue. Why does someone have to die or be seriously injured before something is done. Isn't the objective to identify an issue before it is too late and have the manufacturer fix the problem. Clearly Nissan is not motivated despite the numerous complaints. Is that because they sold over 500,000 1st generation Muranos(it is not just the 2006 model that has these issues). So if it is $1,000 per repair on a recall at 500,000 units the total price tag is 500 million dollars for this fix. Well no wonder why this has yet to be recalled. That is really the bottom line I believe.

I recently purchased a 2006 Nissan Murano sl.the drive seat frame I S broken. Whenever I take a turn the seat lifts as the frame is broken. I complained to Nissan dealer from whom I bought the car. They said they will replace the parts when I purchased the car. But its been 2+ weeks, they still waiting on parts. I don't think they going to replace it. As this issue is very common among all Muranos, I am filing this complain.

  • 63,000 miles
Driving my 2006 Murano when suddenly the seat lurched down to the left after a loud snap. Dealer said my seat frame had a broken weld, and a needed replacement would cost $1,150., even though this is obviously is a safety issue, especially when making a turn. I paid for the seat, and immediately decided to sell the car, even though it only had 63,000 miles and it was always well maintained. I am not an usually large man, 225 lbs. Nissan needs to address this failure, and reimburse owners for poor safety design.
