2007 Nissan Murano Owner Comments

problem #2

Murano 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

Due to close proximity (and same "level") of brake pedal and gas pedal, the throttle is accidentally engaged when trying to stop (under braking). This causes the braking to be less effective (engine working against brakes), with moderate loss of control, unusual results, and near accidents. This has occured three times to me, and has occurred twice to my wife, on this vehicle. We have both been driving many different types of vehicles for many years, and never had this happen to either of us before. Therefore, it must be an "unusual" design cause on this vehicle.

I have a 2007 Nissan Murano SE AWD. When the vehicle is in reverse and brake pedal applied, there is a horrible screeching/squealing noise that occurs. It is a very loud noise that can be heard from far away. This happens almost every time the car is in reverse. The problem does not occur when vehicle is going forward. The brakes continue to work except for the noise. I have called the dealer countless times and they say a fix is being worked on, but no resolution as to when it will happen. Not sure if the dealer is lying to me, or if Nissan is really trying to figure it out. The dealer does not know how to fix the problem at this time. I will not take the Murano in to be fixed until Nissan has an official solution, as I do not want them randomly replacing parts without knowing what the problem is. This needs to be corrected soon as I have read many forums where 06 and 07 Murano owners have the exact same problem with brake squeal.
