Murano 6-cyl

  • 60,300 miles


The driver's side sun visor falls, blocking view. I push it back up and the next crack in the road makes it fall again. Nissan dealer wants over $200 to replace. It does not matter what the speed is. A crack or bump in the road makes it fall.

Murano 6-cyl

  • 87,000 miles
While driving at approx. 45 miles per hours the sun driver's side sun visor suddenly lowered from the "up" position, completely blocking my view of the road in front of me. This problem persisted intermittently then the visor would not stay in the "up" position at all. I had to remove the visor in order to see, but I am then blinded by the sun at times creating an equally dangerous situation. I have read several online forums and this is an ongoing issue that needs to be fixed. There is no fix for the visor, just a forced replacement at $300.

Murano 6-cyl

  • 84,000 miles
Drivers side visor began swinging down and blocking vision intermittently during high speed travel and bumpy conditions. The visor has continued to degrade and swings down under almost any movement. I had a quote from a mechanic to replace this item, but the cost seems excessive. The visor is currently held in place with duct tape/ velcro, but the home fix is not effective or long lasting.

Murano 6-cyl

  • 44,000 miles
Both visors on the passenger side and driver side drop; mostly occurs on the drivers side, if the road is a little bumpy it falls down a lot! it is extremely dangerous as it occurs so often and I live in a bigger city and deal with the problem of traffic on a regular basis, it causes my line of sight to be extremely obstructed as I am a taller person and already have my seat down as low as possible and cannot see anything when the visor drops.

This complaint is about the driver's side sun visor of 2006 Nissan Muranos. I have found forums with many people experiencing the problem that I am of 2006 and other model years where it fails to stay up. The tension or spring in the sun visor is gone just like that and it falls and blocks vision while driving. It falls just driving regularly, and although drivers need vision always and constantly while operating the vehicle, it also falls at times that are most dangerous when vision is of utmost importance, I.e. any driving on rough surfaces, any maneuvering to avoid accidents, uneven roadways, unexpected braking or even just turning. I don't believe the consumers of these vehicles should be responsible for the very expensive replacement that Nissan quotes when reporting the problem. There is nothing in the warranty about sun visors or problems impacting visibility. The seat belt is a safety item and is covered for a long period of time, 120 months (10 years)! the sun visor blocking visibility while driving should be along the same lines as that regarding warranty, and there's nothing that says it is or isn't. I am dealing with Nissan's Consumer Affairs department now but do not have hopes of getting this resolved with them. I have had to replace a very expensive ballast for the driver side hid bulb (cost only mitigated by buying used), the fuel sensor, have a rattling window from the beginning that the dealer fixed but the fix didn't last, and have had other issues with the Nissan dealership I bought and serviced the car from. It's one thing after the other and I have not filed a complaint about the other items, but this is a severe safety issue and it's time to put my foot down. It is not an old car, there is no reason I, or any of the other Murano owners should be personally liable for this serious visibility while driving issue.

Murano 6-cyl

  • 65,000 miles
My husband noticed around 65,000 miles that the sun visor on the driver side doesn't stay up. It happens all the time. Probably every five minutes of driving. If the road is bumpy, forget it. It just slams down, affecting my line of sight. My father is terrified to drive my car, because of it. All I can do is flip back up and turn it to a slight angle. Paying 300 dollars for a new visor is unrealistic. Every Nissan forum says they just break again. I'm thinking of buying a different car, because of it.

Murano 6-cyl

  • 70,000 miles


This complaint regards the sunvisors on the driver's side of a 2006 Nissan Murano. The current sunvisor fails to stay up (parallel with vehicle roof) or canted. It falls constantly, obstructing the view of the roadway for drivers. Additionally, the configuration of the visor is such that it is likely to fall when driver's need their vision the most-- upon hitting uneven or rocky pavement, striking debris in the road, or making necessary evasive maneuvers to avoid an accident. This problem appears to be widespread with Nissan Muranos, as several forums discussing the issue are visible on the internet. One such forum is nissanmurano.org. The site lists approximately eleven pages of car owners and other individuals discussing the same problem. The current remedy suggested by Nissan is a $500 replacement visor, which is not covered by extended warranty. This figure seems unreasonable for the severity of the problem, its widespread occurrence, and the potential consequences of having an internal vehicle accessory fall over the eyes of the driver at any moment.

Murano 6-cyl

  • 25,000 miles
Driver's side sunvisor began to drop when car hits a bump, going over rough roads and at random times. Now it drops all the time causing the vision of the driver to be blocked and causing potential safety issues. I have extended warrenty but its not covered and was told by the dealer it would cost $520. This issue must be solved for safety reasons. With multiple complaints Nissan should consider a recall.

Murano 6-cyl

  • 5,000 miles
The defective design of the driver-side visor in our 2006 Nissan Murano results in a safety hazard because the visor will not stay up - it falls down, blocking the driver's view. Drivers are either forced to drive with one hand on the wheel while trying to hold the visor up with the other; or driving with a very restricted view of the road with the visor hanging down. Replacement visors are no better - they fail within a few weeks of being installed. According to websites we have visited, the design defect of the visor is common among Nissan Murano models of many other years also.

The sun visor on the drivers side does not lock in the up position. This causes it to fall down into the field of view and is a definite safety issue especially when driving on rough roads as it can block you vision without any warning. Manufacturer and dealers will not cover this repair once out of warranty and it costs upwards of $400 to do the repair. I have investigated this and have even heard from dealers that this is a common occurrence with these vehicles all the way back to 2003. This should definitely be a safety recall as it could cause an unexpected accident.

Murano 6-cyl

  • 41,000 miles
My driver side sunvisor flops down and will not stay positioned correctly to shield the sun. I either have to drive w/O the visor and be blinded by the sun or I have my view obstructed from the floppy sunvisor being right in my line of vision. The failure occurs anytime I try and use the visor. This started when my mileage was 41,000 and I drive a 2006 Murano. This is a big safety concern. My Nissan dealer quoted me at $433.18 to repair the visor. I have done research and this appears to be an ongoing issue with Nissan Muranos.

Sun visors in 2006 Nissan Murano fail repeatedly aned will flop down blocking the driver's view causing unsafe condition. This problem appears to be ongoing since at least 2005 models not liited to Murano only. The internet is filled with posts of people having this problem and dealerships are replacing with the same part that does not fix the problem permanently as these new visors fail as well. It started when only hitting a bump. Now it occurs during normal driving inclduing at freeway speeds.

Floppy sun visors 2006 Nissan Murano. Both sun visors will no longer remain in place. They impair/block sight and are very distracting. This makes it very unsafe to drive as you have to keep fighting with the visors to move them out of the way so you can see. Many, many other Murano drivers have the same problem. This is clearly a problem Nissan needs to address/recall before major accidents occur because you can't keep both hands on the wheel since you have to keep moving the floppy visor out of the way so you can see. Not being able to have a clear line of sight with a visor constantly in your way is a serious problem. I have tried to find a solution for this problem but nothing seems to work. It is a manufacturing/design malfunction. This problem is just as bad as people driving while on their cell phones. Dangerous.
