Murano 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 900 miles


I have a 2007 Nissan Murano that we purchase a few months ago. When the vehicle is in reverse and the brake pedal is applied, there is a horrible squeaking/whistling/grinding noise that occurs. I have taken the car to the dealer 4 times and they consistently state they are working on a solution but Nissan does not know what is really wrong with them and only offer a suggestive change in brake pads and using a special grease to lessen the noise for a few days. They eventually changed out the rotors on the last trip a couple weeks ago and told us the problem Nissan states is there was a change in the "Nissan brake pads" and there is to much metallic in the pads now which is causing the noise. Since that visit, we have taken the vehicle to another repair shop and had and "after-market brake pad" placed on the car since Nissan states is was only a problem with their make of brake pad. We very quickly learned this was not true! the noise and grinding is worse. It has even become noticeable anytime you apply the brakes and the brakes do not feel like they are grabbing correctly. I do not feel safe driving this vehicle and do not think we should have to pay $40K for a car and not have security with the braking system. I think the dealers should replace the vehicles before someone gets hurt or killed due to the brake failure.

Murano 6-cyl

My wife and I purchased a 2007 Nissan Murano a few months ago. Since that time we have experienced problems with very loud screeching noises with the brakes. We have taken it back to the dealer where we bought it in lubbock, tx and to a dealer in houston. Both said this is a common problem in Muranos and they are hoping for some sort of fix from Nissan. They both said that to date there has been no repair initiated from the factory. I wrote an email to Nissan customer service to ask for assistance and they did not care to respond. Since the brakes are such a vital part of automotive safety and these are obviously not right I want to ask for your assistance in getting this problem resolved. If it cannot be resolved would you please advise me as to how to return this car under the "lemon law" as we do not feel safe when driving it. We have taken it to two dealers and both recognize that it is a problem but neither can recommend a fix. I do not believe we should have to continue to drive a car we believe is unsafe.
