Murano 6-cyl

  • 55,306 miles
I was driving on the highway when the incident occurred. I brake because there was traffic ahead when all of a sudden I felt a pop and the seat dipped down and back. I almost crashed due to the distraction of the seat braking and bracing myself so that I didn't fall. The seat then began to rock back and forth. I had to sustain the seats with bricks underneath the seat so that I can be able to drive. I immediately went to the dealer and the response from the dealer was that they are aware of the issue and that the other replacement seats have the same issue. He basically told me "don't waste your money on a new seat because it will happen again". this is a very serious safety hazard and is beyond me that Nissan will not do a recall on this! it is amazing that someone has to die in order for something to happen.

Murano 6-cyl

I got in my car after work, started driving down the street, and I heard a loud pop sound (like a bar in the seat broke/popped) from the drivers seat of my vehicle. Right afterwards my seat started rocking and leaning to the left. I pushed the electrical seat buttons to make sure the power was still working, but now the seat is rocking.

Murano 6-cyl Diesel

  • 81,386 miles
While driving and making a turn, the driver's seat bracket failed causing the left rear of the seat to dip down and rock back and forth. The seat is now unstable and it is unsafe to drive the vehicle. Upon doing some research online, I have read numerous complaints that NHTSA and Nissan are aware that these seats are a problem and that previous concerns and requests for a recall on this issue have fallen on deaf ears. I think Nissan should take responsibility for this manufacturing defect and fix these seats before someone is injured.

The contact owns a 2007 Nissan Murano. The contact stated that while driving 35 mph the driver seat broke causing it to rock from side to side. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who stated there was no recall and to repair the seat would be at a cost to him.

The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 117,125. Updated 01/15/13 updated 1/23/2013

Murano 6-cyl

  • 127,125 miles
While driving home after work on the interstate I heard a pop and the driver seat collapsed toward the driver door. After almost colliding with a vehicle in the adjacent lane I came to a safe stop on the shoulder and investigated the driver seat. I was able to move the seat 4-5 inches form the left rear toward the right front quadrant. I lowered the seat which took some of the play out of the seat and finished the drive home. After further investigation the metal seat frame had broken loose at two brackets. I'm still researching safe alternatives to fix the seat frame. The Nissan dealer told me they had a tsb on the seat and the replacement frame had the same fatigue issues. This known deficiency by Nissan is a safety hazard and needs to be addressed.

Murano 6-cyl

  • 110,000 miles
Drivers side seat left rear bracket connecting the seat to the seat adjuster assembly broke, causing the seat to move freely up and down, especially while turning. This seems to be a common occurrence on this vehicle based on what I've read in forums. This could be very dangerous while you are turning your seat unexpectedly lifts up and could cause you to let go of the steering wheel and crash. The following webpage has comments from several Murano owners who have experienced the same. www.nissanmurano.org/forums/66-problems/1548-drivers-seat-10.html.

The rear bracket on the driver side seat cracked. It was on the left side of the rear bracket. This caused the seat to be lower on that side. It also caused the seat to rock back and forth.

Murano 6-cyl

  • 66,400 miles
I was driving on the interstate at 65 mph and heard a popping sound. My seat moved and then it started rocking. It scared me so bad that I pulled off the road to see what happened. I could tell that something serious had broken and drove back home to find that the weld had come apart. I felt like I was driving, sitting in a rocking chair. This is a serious problem and should be fixed and paid for by Nissan. I have never owned a vehicle that the seat broke like this. We have had some of our cars and trucks over 15 years! if this is not a recall problem then Nissan has lost me and my family as customers for life.

This is a follow up to my previous complaint, which documented the sudden collapse of the driver's seat in my Nissan Murano. In 2009, NHTSA ruled that this defect was not a safety issue, based on the fact that only three minor injuries had been reported. However, I recently came across information that the bisnar chase law firm has filed two auto products liability lawsuits against Nissan -- one for a catastrophic injury and the other for a fatal injury -- which appear to be directly related to the Nissan driver's seat defect. The information appears on the law firm's website, as well as on those of some news organizations. In light of this recent information, I recommend that NHTSA re-open its investigation, in order that this very dangerous defect can be resolved prior to any additional fatalities and/or catastrophic injuries.

Drivers side seat frame broke. The left rear bracket snapped while I was driving on freeway!!! this appears to be a common issue that Nissan knows about. There should be a recall, as this is extremely dangerous!

Murano 6-cyl

  • 72,176 miles
My wife took the kids out of the car to the house and return to put the Murano'07 into the garage. When she sat in the seat it was loose and felt that it had broken. She said it felt loose when she went to pick up the kids. I checked the seat and it was broken on the bottom beam that supports the cushion to the seat. This should not have happened just from seating in the seat. Also, took the vehicle to a Nissan dealer and they stated that the seat assembly needs to be replaced which will cost about $1500. This is an outrageous price to pay for something that should have not broken from normal use.

Murano 6-cyl

  • 66,197 miles
There was a pop and the left side of the drivers seat dropped down slightly. When I tried to adjust only right side of the seat would move up or down. Looking on the internet this seams to be a big problem for Nissan in these model years. Reference service bulletin BT05-12D ntb085-043D dated December 16, 2009. If the seat was to fall back in would have caused an accident.
