The driver side sun visor unexpectedly drops, blocking the driver's view. For me it completely obscures my view. This will happen randomly. The warranty does not cover the repair (repair costs in excess of $435 quoted to me). I have read pages and pages or online forums with people having the same problem with 2003 model year through 2006. Nissan does not offer a repair or recall at this time.

Murano 6-cyl

  • 40,000 miles


2006 Nissan Murano. Problem began ~40K mileage. Driver's side visor will no longer stay in up position for more than few minutes of driving, less if any bumps in the road. The visor cannot be set to hold any position other than vertical at 90 degrees, causing severe diminished visibility. Visor will drop without warning creating hazard. Repair estimate is $400. Have been unable to locate used part for replacement. Visor temporarily held in place with package sealing tape, but this too is a hazard if needing to use visor to shield direct sunlight. Hundreds of complaints about this problem found on internet search. Appears to be faulty part from Nissan. Severe accidents are only a matter of time.

I own a 2006 Nissan Murano. Recently, my driver's side sun visor will not hold a downward adjustment. It stays (for now) in the upward position but when I put it down to block the sun it dangles, is the best way I can describe it. I have to use one hand to hold it in the position needed to block the sun. It is either all the way up or all the way down, no position in between. This is a safety hazard for two reasons. Taking one hand off the steering wheel is a big safety hazard and not using the visor when I have to use two hands on the wheel is blinding. If a car, person or animal should move into my path I would have difficulty seeing them without the visor down. I live in the mountains and driving up the hill home is very difficult when driving into the sun. It is getting weaker when holding the upward position, it will get to the point that it will not stay up at all. When I asked the Nissan dealer about repairing it I was given a price of $450 just for the part not including labor. I have an extended warranty on my car and feel Nissan should be covering this under warranty because of the safety hazards.

Murano 6-cyl

  • 92,000 miles
Sun visor on 2006 Nissan Murano became loose and now constantly drops down into field of view while driving at slight bumps in the road. This now happens every time the car hits a small bump, and partially obscures vision.

Sun visor falls down into line of vision when car hits a bump and makes it impossible for tall drivers to see the road. Visor will not stay up. This results in having to hold the visor up with one hand while driving the car with the other hand in order to see the road. Dealer wants $500 to replace visor. This appears to be a common problem with 2003-2007 Muranos.

2006 Nissan Murano - left hand (driver's side) sun visor failure to stay flush with roof. The part falls into the view of the driver creating a safety concern. The failure occurs constantly. To correct the issue a $404 part needs to be ordered from Nissan ($404 for a sun visor with a lighted vanity mirror, seriously"?") Nissan should take action and recall this part based on hundreds of occurrences being discussed on forums.

The sun visors on my 2006 Nissan Murano, both driver and passenger side, fail to stay in place. They continually fall down and are in the line of vision of the driver. This is clearly a safety issue as the driver is momentarily blinded at the least. It also causes the driver to jump and may have an end result of a jerked wheel. We have attempted to fix this on numerous occasions, but the $400 estimate for each shade seems far too steep to pay, especially when I see this is a very common problem for Nissan Muranos of all years.

Sun visor repeatedly falls in front of the drivers face - minimizing visibility and requiring you to take your hand off the steering wheel. Dangerous at times - since it happens almost constantly.
