problem #45

  • 65,000 miles


The contact owns a 2006 Nissan Murano. While driving approximately 35 mph and proceeding to turn left, the driver's seat began to tilt to the left without assistance. The failure occurs when making left turns. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic for inspection and the adjustment anchor bracket was deemed to be the cause of the failure. The repair cost was estimated at $1,000. The vehicle has not been repaired. The VIN was unknown. The failure mileage was 65,000 and current mileage was 70,000.

The driver seat if my 2006 Nissan Murano rocks back and forth and side to side. I found this out by making a left turn at a light and my seat just popped and I leaned into the door. Now it wiggles back and forth even when not driving it.

There was no warning but one day the driver's seat stopped moving on the left side. Essentially, the seat would just hook to the left whenever I tried to move the seat and whenever you started the car (since this car has an automatic seat adjust feature upon starting and turning off the engine). I took the car to the dealership to see what the problem was and it resulted in needing a new seat track. Unless the repair is made, which Nissan Consumer Affairs will not take responsibility for, the seat remains in a position that is not appropriate for me, the main driver. Additionally, I am the only driver of this vehicle and would not ever move the seat causing this damage to it. The vehicle has a feature that causes the seat to move each and every time you get in and out of it, on it's own. This is what caused the damage since I never manually move the seat. I have seen many other complaints about this same issue on websites such as nissanmurano.org. This is a safety issue. Nissan will not rectify this issue and has not recalled the vehicle for this problem.

The contact owns a 2006 Nissan Murano. On May 5, 2009, the contact noticed that the driver's seat was tilted. The frame appeared to be misaligned. The vehicle was taken to the dealer because the contact suspected that some screws were loose. The dealer stated that the seat frame failed and needed to be replaced. The contact feels that the failure was due to a manufacturer defect because the vehicle was only three years old. The current and failure mileages were 55,000.

Entered vehicle today after work and as soon as I sat in the drivers seat, there was a loud popping noise. Seat flopped back as I was getting in. Seat rocked back and forth on the way home. Upon inspection, noticed left rear seat frame was broken. This appears to be a common problem being reported by hundreds of other Murano owners.

The contact owns a 2006 Nissan Murano. While driving between 55-60 mph, the brackets failed underneath the driver's seat. A Nissan repair shop welded the brackets back in place in March of 2009. The failure only occurred once. The contact has a repair order from the shop for $300. The failure mileage was 53,000 and current mileage was 56,000.

The drivers seat in my 2006 Nissan Murano broke. I had the seat back part replaced, however, it broke again within a week. Will be going back to glenn Nissan in lexington again. This is ridiculous. Nissan needs to step up to the plate on this one!

Driver's seat is broken - the entire frame on the left side broke and the seat falls to the left, making it impossible to be comfortable and safe. Currently have 2X4 boards holding up the seat, and an unable to adjust the seat creating a pain in my lower back, as well as a safety flaw in the vehicle.

Upon entering the driver side door and sitting in driver seat, the driver seat support rod, underneath the upholstery, became disengaged from the left side support post, causing the seat to "cave-in" on the left side.

Was driving down the road doing 25mph to the intersection and made a left hand turn on the already green light. While in the middle of the turn the back left portion of my seat lifted up several inches causing me to lean suddenly to the right. Managed to regain control through the turn. Now when making left hand turns I have to hold on to my door handle with my left hand to avoid causing the seat to lift and lean extremely to the right even under mild speed. Once I got home I took the left side plastic panel off the drivers seat and upon lifting up the rear left corner of the seat could see where the cross support bracket had broken the two small contact points with the side bracket. Will try to take it to the local Nissan dealership tomorrow to hopefully have repaired/replaced under warranty.

Nissan Murano 2006 model, seat assembly bracket broke (part # 87450-ca68A )... and as I checked I found out that it has happened with many other Murano guys as well... this is dangerous if it breaks again while driving and looks like a faulty part, spent around 500 dollars to get ot done...

The bracket holding the driver's seat in the rear left section of the seat has broken. The car has 41,000 miles and is a 2006 Nissan Murano. I did some research and this seems to be a very common problem. The result is a seat that now leans and is only connected to the mounting points at 3 locations instead of 4.

I was driving my 2006 Nissan Murano (purchased new January 2006) with about 45K miles on it when---while driving, the drivers seat rocked to the left/left rear, clearly broken. Side-to-side lurching movement of the seat happens constantly. I took it to the Nissan dealership where I bought the car in cedar rapids Iowa. They told me the drivers seat track was broken and gave an estimate of $1,035.09 to repair. This included $675.30 drivers seat track part. The part number listed on the estimate was 87450-ca06A this was not covered under warranty due to mileage (47K at time of their diagnosis). This has to be a major safety concern, particularly if any accident occurred, at which time a secured seat would be imperative. I can't imagine that this basic equipment has a lifespan of less than three years, yet when I researched this incident online, I found many, many complaints of the same "broken seat" in 2006 and 2005 Murano model years.

Recently purchased a 2006 Nissan Murano. I thought my seat was not adjusted properly, but I now realize the seat is broken. The seat leans to the left so much, that it makes it very uncomfortable to drive. This is ridiculous on a car with 40,000 miles and just three years old.

I had a failure of the drivers seat in my 2006 Nissan Murano. After checking with the parts department at my local Nissan dealer (olathe Nissan) I found the part broken was part number 87450+a. replacement of that portion of my seat will result in a cost of approximately $650 parts, plus labor for installation. I'm still within the 3 year warranty period, but over the 35K mile and was told this would not be covered under warranty. There is a tsb on this problem and seems as I have become a member of a large group that can expect the potential for having this repair every 2 to 3 years. It seems that Nissan has a design problem that needs to be addressed, but not at my expense life or money. This should be viewed as an extreme safety issue, as it broke when I was driving making it very difficult to drive!

Drivers seat was making a squeaking noise and finally broke, sending the seat down to the floor, jolting the driver. It was repaired by the dealer, but was not covered under extended warranty.
