2007 Nissan Murano Owner Comments

  • 65,000 miles


I own a 2007 Nissan Murano that I bought used 1.5 years ago. There are two serious safety issues that the car has and for which Nissan has had to recall thousands of other vehicles. I just cannot understand why my particular vehicle was not covered under the recall. It's just too coincidental and Nissan should be held accountable. Recall number 09V169000 recall date 05/19/2009 component engine and engine cooling the intake air ducts, which are connected to the intermediate resonator in the air intake system of the engine, may separate from the resonator with engine movement. This separation occurs due to the premature aging of the material used in the intake air ducts which causes excessive shrinking. Recall number 08V521000 recall date 10/07/2008 component air bags summary Nissan is recalling 204,361 my 2007-2008 Altima, Altima hybrid, 350Z, 350Z roadster, my 2008 Altima coupe, rogue, my 2009 Murano, and infiniti my 2007-2008 G35 sedan, my 2008 G37 coupe and EX35 passenger vehicles equipped with Continental automotive systems' occupant classification system (OCS) control units. A varistor in the OCS control unit located in the passenger seat cushion may have been manufactured out of specification. Under certain conditions, this could cause an interruption of signal between the OCS and the air bag control unit (acu). Consequence this could result in the passenger air bag being suppressed which could fail to provide adequate protection in the event of a crash.

The contact owns a 2007 Nissan Murano. The contact stated that the air bag warning indicator illuminated.

Driver's seat - the bracket in the rear left that supports the seat broke while driving. Air bags - the air bag light is on and will not go away. When I purchased the vehicle in Feb. 2016, the dealer assured me it was just a glitch in the display. Engine - started running rough about a week ago, while we were headed out of town. Cancelled that trip. Threw a "cylinder 3 misfire" code. My husband replaced that plug and coil and it continued to run rough. Today, it overheated and started dumping fluid on the ground. The suspension is also failing. When we hit a bump or pothole, it feels like the front end is going to fall off. I loved this car when we bought it and when it runs right, but right now, I am completely disgusted. I have only owned it for two months. I feel like we were robbed and we aren't in the financial standing to replace it.

Murano 6-cyl

  • 77,400 miles
Passenger seat occupant control unit failed and airbags will not work in case of an accident. Cost of repair is $3950 at 77.5K miles. On June 30, 2014 we noticed the airbag light flashing and brought the car to my repair facility paying $99 for diagnosis, who said the passenger seat would need replacement and they recommended we work with Nissan to see if they would assist through a recall or other means due to the fact that the cost of the repair is half the value of the entire car which only has 77.5K miles. I went to arlington Nissan and paid another $120 for same diagnosis. I had an open ticket with Nissan asking them to escalate the situation to receive financial help in getting this repair done for the safety and well being of my family and knowing other cars have been recalled for this very same issue. On 7-9-2014 I was told by Nissan supervisor (sue) the same that all others had told me, they unfortunately can do nothing to assist with this situation even though they empathize. I have had numerous repair issues when the car reached 5 years and the cost of repairs for this car is horrendous. (I.e. headlight $200+, driver seat $4000, etc...) I informed them that I will be filing a complaint, I will be telling everyone I know my bad experiences with Nissan, and that I will never be purchasing a Nissan again.

Went in for high pressure hose replacement and came out with air bag light flashing. Dealer (wolfchase Nissan) would not own up to it being a problem. Frustrated that Nissan did not recall the 07 as they should have all cars, etc with that same specification instead of a few. Hundreds of thousands have complained but nothing seems to be done for the 07 models. Should a consumer have to lose a life due to a faulty sensor or whatever the issue with the passenger seat cushions or modules? Nissan knew the issue exist but doesn't want to own up to this recall. I'm begging for an investigation regarding this issue. People have lost lives due to errors with the air bag and I personally don't want to be the next victim. If dealer expects me to pay $1200 for something that I did not cause, they are truly mistaken. I will raise my voice to the heavens before that happen. Please investigate this matter.

Driving on the interstate. ABS lights, brake lights, and odometer stopped working. Smelled burning from under the hood. Took it to a Nissan dealership who determined that the fuse box was faulty, the ABS module went out as well as the ECM. Dealership said that my air bags were not functioning since the incident, and that the vehicle was unsafe to drive. When searching to find out what happened, found numerous incidents of Nissan vehicles having the same exact issue.

Murano 6-cyl

  • 65,000 miles
After I bought my 2007 Murano from a reputable dealer, my airbag light started flashing. I took it to Nissan to have them tell me what it was. They told me that the passenger seat cushion and diagnostic module needed replaced. They told me it would cost me almost $3000 to fix the airbag sensor. After further research, I have discovered that there are many, many others that have this same issue. I know there was a recall for this type of problem but I am wondering why the 07 and 08 model year Muranos were not included in the recall. This is how the initial recall looks including the 07, 08, and 09 Muranos- vehicle make / model: Model year(s): Infiniti / EX35 2008 infiniti / G35 2007-2008 infiniti / G37 2008 Nissan / 350Z 2007-2008 Nissan / Altima 2007-2008 Nissan / Altima hybrid 2007-2008 Nissan / Murano 2007-2009 Nissan / rogue 2008 followed by the summary of the recall that explains the exact problem but excludes the 2007-2008 Murano models. What do we have to do to get Nissan to extend the recall for the rest of us that got left out of the recall process. The same system was used in the 2007-2008 Muranos but not sure how they were left out."?"
