problem #105

  • 37,000 miles


My wife was driving our 2006 Nissan Murano when she swerved to avoid hitting a deer. The driver seat, which wobbles, leaned freely to the right and caused my wife to lose control of the vehicle and go into the ditch. Luckily, she was not injured and the car was able to be driven out of the ditch. This issue with the seat has been well known and documented as a severe safety hazard yet nothing has been done about it. The seat now constantly wobbles and leans forward and to the right when making a left turn. It makes the vehicle feel very unstable and unsafe. The local Nissan dealer said a new bracket would need to be installed, which will cost approximately $1000.

Drivers seat in my 2006 Murano came loose from it's mounting Saturday while driving down the highway. It is like the seat came loose from the outer mounting bracket. When I transfer my weight to my left, while sitting in the drivers seat, I can feel the seat tip sideways to an alarming degree. When I make a left turn, I feel like the seat is going to roll right out of the drivers door. Very unsettling. I took the car today to my Nissan dealer. The dealer was familiar with the problem. Told me a bracket had snapped under the seat and that the "seat adjuster assembly" needed to be replaced. Cost: $1200 including labor. This seems outrageous on several levels, not the least of which appears to be a major safety flaw in the materials used to hold that seat in place. I was advised by service writer not to drive the car, as the seat could break off and roll backwards while I am driving. Fyi, the vehicle has been driven normally without any off roading, ever. I weigh 190 pounds, so I'm not huge. I'm shocked that there hasn't been a recall on this. I googled the problem today and found an active community of disgruntled Murano owners with similar experiences. I think your organization should look into this problem.

The seat in my Nissan Murano while I was turning the seat just broke and sent me shifting and moving to the left. Now my seat rocks and doesn't feel secure when turning. If that was to break during an accident it could send the person to fly out.

Drivers side seat frame snapped completely in half. This is the basic structure of the car and should not break with no reason. This car has never been in any accidents. The seat is very loose and therefore very unsafe. It could lead to an accident or cause excessive injury if an accident occurred as there is no support to keep the seat from moving. This is very unsafe and seems to be a factory defect.

Drivers seat frame snapped in half. This car has never been in any accidents so there is no reason for the actual frame to have broken. It is very loose and wobbly and therefore very unsafe to drive. It would not hold up in the case of an accident. This is not something that should break with no reason as it is the structure of the vehicle. This is very unsafe and could cause an accident or cause excessive injury as a result of an accident.

I have a 2006 Nissan Murano and the front drivers seat has a bar broken which causes the seat to shift from side to side. This is unsafe and is poor workmanship.

Operating my 2006 Nissan Murano on the roadway when there was a sudden pop and snap noise from beneath the drivers seat. Fortunately I was able to maintain control and was not involved in a collision. The drivers seat know is loose and tilts to the left and is very unsafe, especially when cornering. I went to a local Nissan dealership and was told that the seat rail had broken and needed to be repaired at a cost of $1200.. upon further investigation I learned that I am among many people who have experienced this broken seat rail syndrome. There is obviously a defect in the bracket which needs to be investigated and a corrective notice issued to Nissan of MA.

Similar complaint re: Driver's seat on 2006 Nissan Murano. I recently purchased the car used (1 month ago). The seat, automatically adjusts for the driver when the vehicle is turned on and has been operating without concern. Today, the driver's seat came off track without warning, now leans way to the left and is extremely unsafe. I drove it home and will take it to dealer tomorrow. I did call Nissan re: Recall and was informed there was no recalls on this vehicle despite the hundreds of similar complaints. I intend to do what I can to ensure it is addressed by Nissan and the repairs made.

I have a 2006 Nissan Murano. For the past few weeks there was a squeak in my car, I thought it might be my seat. All of a sudden this morning, I got in and my drivers seat was leaning to the left. Took it to the dealer and they want $1100 to fix it, says it is not covered under their warranty. They said that the seat frame is broken.

Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6) I have a Nissan Murano 2006, as you already acknowledge that, thousand of customers had problem with the seat on driver side and I'm one of them. This is so pathetic engineering design and Nissan didn't step up for a recall. It happened when I was driving and almost had an incidence. Should we look at it as safety circumstances and make Nissan responsible for what they have built. Thanks and wait for your respond. You can contact me at[xxx]

Driver seat on 2006 Nissan Murano dropped and shifted abruptly causing me to temporarily loose control and cross the center line into oncoming traffic on highway 15 in Virginia. Luckily I was able to regain control and get back into my lane before a collision. Subsequent examination of the seat revealed a hinged connecting member at the rear left section of the seat frame of the 10 way power driver's seat had failed causing the seat to fall and shift to the left. Frederick Nissan identified part number 87450-ca66A as needing to be replaced to fix the seat. The problem was reported to Nissan America and was not considered a safety issue.

I have a Nissan Murano 2006 that the drivers seat bracket suddenly broke while driving causing the seat to lean toward the door. Every time you turn the car it forces to seat belt to lock in place caused by the sudden movement. Estimate of repair $1060.

On my 2006 Nissan Murano SE the driver's side seat is like a rocking chair. It appears that one of the brackets broke underneath. I took it to a Nissan dealership who confirmed the problem and then Nissan corporate said they would do nothing to fix the problem. I have found that hundreds of Murano owners have had the same problem and this is a really safety concern but I fear that Nissan will only do something once someone dies from it.

2006 Nissan Murano drivers seat and sun visor. My 2006 Nissan Murano has had two parts fail that I believe are a safety concern and warrant a recall. The 1st part is the drivers seat. I'm not a large person but the left side seat bracket broke and now my seat rocks left and right. I can't raise the seat up and down because only the right side works. The seat also bounces up and down. Apparently this is a very common problem with the Murano and Nissan's excuse is "wear and tear." Seriously"?" Nissan offered to replace the driver's seat for $1000 +. the second part that has failed is the driver's sun visor. Whenever I hit a bump, the sun visor swivels down and totally blocks the drivers view out the window. This is not safe. Nissan offered to replace the sun-visor for $350.

I have a 2006 Nissan Murano with 29K miles. While driving in normal conditions I felt a pop in my driver's seat and heard a metallic sound from under the seat. From that point forward the driver's seat has felt unstable and would move freely during turns and normal acceleration/braking. This incident seems common based on an internet search and is referred to as a back-left leaning problem. A technical bulletin was issued but no recall. This seems extremely unsafe and should be treated as a manufacturing design defect.
