Took in my vehicle this morning to get 4 recalls fixed, and dealership stated they could only fix one of the 4 issues. Spoke to a representative and she stated the issues for the model of the SUV were not included in the VIN number, therefore the dealership couldn't assist with all 4 issues. The lights on the dashboard of the SUV are on and all pertain to the 4 issues not included in the VIN. How can I get these included in the VIN number so the dealership can fix the issues? the issues are as follow: NHTSA campaign number: 18V916000 NHTSA campaign number: 09V393000 NHTSA campaign number: 08V521000 NHTSA campaign number: 08V066000

I was driving the car and stopped at a red light. When I hit the gas to go when the light turned green the car would not go. It took about 20 seconds before it would go and when it did it acted like I had my foot on the gas pedal which I did not. It has done this numerous times. I replaced the fuel pump and took it to a mechanic twice. Nothing that has been done has fixed the problem. I have almost been rear ended several times due the fact that the car stalls.

Nissan preformed work on this vehicle for recall # recall 18V916000. A year later the same exact problem occurred and Nissan says we are now responsible for the bill because they only have to attempt to fix recalls once

There was a stabilizer that was not connected on the right front side. Found out when I was in the mechanics. As for the brakes they have worn down quickly and had problems. Including a driver side rear line. The tire pressure warning light remains on even when tires are balanced.

Would lose brake pressure going over a manhole cover/any uneven surface while braking, generally braking to a stop. This would happen periodically for about a year (2016-2017). On 9/3/2017 I was braking for a red light, went over a manhole cover and lost all brake pressure. Vehicle would stop but you would need to press the pedal to the floor. I brought my car to the dealership where they determined the ABS control unit was inoperable. The dealership replaced the unit 9/14/17. I contacted Nissan and was given a case number (28309423) but was never contacted. I am reporting this now as my VIN is not included in the current recall and I feel it should be.

The contact owns a 2009 Nissan Murano. The contact stated that the brake pedal had to be depressed for an extended amount of time and almost to the floorboard before the vehicle would come to a stop. The vehicle failed to stop immediately and took an extended amount of time. Hawkinson Nissan (located at 5513 miller circle drive, matteson, il 60443, 708-252-3769) diagnosed that the ABS had no failure with the hcu. The dealer flushed the brake fluid, but did not replace the hcu. The repairs were performed per NHTSA campaign number: 18V916000 (service brakes, hydraulic); however, the failure continued. The contact took the vehicle to a certified independent mechanic who informed the contact that there was a valve issue regarding the ABS, which was a mechanical defect. The manufacturer was not notified. The approximate failure mileage was 123,000.

My wife was driving the vehicle on a frigid night and she felt that she needed to pump the brake until it hits the floor to stop, next day as she was driving from our garage it just slid off the sloped driveway. I needed to drive her to work in another vehicle. I had the brake pads replaced because the mechanic suggested that the sponginess of the brake might go away if I have a new brake pad. After the replacement it was if nothing was done to the brakes it was stillspongy.

I am reporting a complain about Nissan negligence. Nissan did not informed me about outstanding recall (ABS hcu) for this vehicle which was issued late 2018. I only knew because I brought my vehicle to my trusted mechanic for braking issues on 08.20.2019 who informed me that there is an outstanding recall for this vehicle.

ABS recall. My car has deep brake & take longer to stop so brought to my mechanic & informed me that it has an outstanding ABS recall so I brought it to keoppel Nissan service in queens NY. After two days of waiting they did nothing so decided to pick it up & to bring it to other Nissan dealer service. Before picking my vehicle up they informed me that deep brake & longer braking time has nothing to do with the ABS, vehicles ABS has no issue & does not need to be replaced. They informed me that that it is the brake pads & the calipers which was receiving checked by my trusted mechanic. But keoppel Nissan service did not provide me any written proofs that ABS or the recall has nothing to do with my vehicles braking issue. Now I am back to square one, will bring the vehicle to other Nissan service.
