2009 Nissan Murano Owner Comments

problem #4

Apr 102010

Murano 6-cyl

  • 50,000 miles


After shifting gear in the 2009 Nissan Murano from drive to reverse or reverse to drive, the car continues to roll in previous gear even with the gas pedal pressed. This is severe on hills and has resulted in not being able to drive the car in the desired direction. This is an extremely dangerous defect. Also-the car enables the key to be removed and car shut off while transmission is in drive or reverse and the car continues to move in either direction even with the car powered off! it does not lock or prevent you from shutting car off - extremely dangerous!!!

2009 Nissan SUV Murano / new car aprox. 8 months old key defective and or transmission defective : when you pull out the key and forget to put the auto transmission in park the transmission (dose not lock). Therefore, when you leave the auto, the car can roll! there is a slight beeper tone, which sometime dose not work. This has happened to me several times. On one of those occasions someone was behind the auto and almost seriously got heart.

The contact owns a 2009 Nissan Murano. While parked on an incline or in the reverse gear, the vehicle rolls forward. The dealer was contacted, and a technician stated that they were unaware of this type of failure. No repairs were made. The failure mileage was 400.

On incline, vehicle rolls backwards while in forward automatic transmission gear if you don't have foot on brake. Nissan service says it is the new transmission that allows this to happen. This will cause accidents.
