2006 Nissan Murano Owner Comments

problem #5

Murano 6-cyl

  • 100,000 miles


The metal frame under the driver side broke on the left side causing the seat to move, rock and bounce. This cause distractions and can result in an accident.

Murano 6-cyl

  • 45,000 miles
When making a left hand turn, I heard a crack underneath the driver's side. Afterwards the seat now rocks back and forth and lifts up when making turns. I have searched all over the web and it seems this is a known defect with Nissan drivers side seats on some of their vehicles to the point that they issued a technical service bulletin. I am very disappointed with the fact that Nissan is not standing behind their products. I drive a 2006 Nissan Murano and it only has 51,000 miles on it. The issue appears to be with the seat bracket lifter link assembly.

Both screws holding tailgate latch to vehicle frame failed in >20K miles leaving tailgate secured by > 1/4" of plastic interior trim which is secured by 3 plastic snap connectors. Failed screws were connected to threaded metal base in enclosed box frame member. Only fix was to cut box, recover base and re-attach screws and weld cover over cut.

The drivers side seat recently started to rocking toward the drivers side door which alerted me to having a problem. The sub rail that hold the seat in broken. This happens every time I get into the car the seat is leaning to the left door. I contacted the dealer in which I purchased the car, they said it is nothing they can do because the warranty is up. I should contact the manufacture Nissan which I have also done.

I have a 2006 Nissan Murano. Approx. 6 months ago the driver's seat would start squeaking whenever I made any turns or drove over bumps. It sounds like plastic grinding. On 12/12/08, I sat in the seat and the frame broke. The driver's seat now rocks from side to side whenever you turn. This is a safety issue as your feet will come off the gas or break whenever you turn. I went on the web, and there are several public forums from Murano owners complaining about the same issue. Nissan is aware of the problem, but will not take any any action. The local Nissan dealer will only replace the whole seat for $1,200 and not try to fix the root of the problem. If they want you to buy a whole new seat, what is to prevent this from occurring again? unacceptable. Nissan needs to recall this seat, because it is a safety issue.
