2015 Nissan Murano Owner Comments

problem #3

Jan 042019

Murano CV 3.2L V6

  • CVT transmission
  • 68,351 miles


For my 2015 Nissan Murano Lease the ball joint was replaced under warranty at 60,000Km by the dealer.

I brought in my car due to a vibration problem at 95000km on Aug 2018 before the warranty expired, the dealer said that everything was ok and that the vibration was normal. I have a report with all the checkmarks.

I brought the car back in September a month later due to the same vibration the dealer said that now when the car was out of warranty it needed new engine mounts bc they were cracked, new shock absorber struts, new sway bars, there was a leak in the power steering system, new battery re-machine brakes total cost $7500K CAN and the dealer said that as a good-will they will cover half of that cost

Check engine light came on at 110000km in Jan 2019 the dealer said the they have to replace the transmission total cost $7500 and Nissan Canada said that as a good will the will cover 70%.

This vehicle is a lease and its been nothing but problems. At $40K I expected much better. I have a 2014 Nissan rogue as well is due in May 2019 with 22000Km. Can's wait to get rid of both this vehicles.

I'll never look at a nissan, cars look good but they are poor products and low quality. Stay away from these cars

Murano Platinum 3.5L V6

  • CVT transmission
  • 32 miles

My Murano has a very obvious vibration/rumbling noise when I'm going around 40 mph and with the engine rpm at 1000. It feels like the engine is lugging because the CVT wants to keep the rpm too low, I can shift to manual mode and still go the same speed but the vibration/rumble noise will go away because the engine rpm will be more than 1000. Obviously I don't want to drive in manual mode all the time so simply driving in manual mode all the time is not the solution.

The same issue also occurs when I'm going at a very low speed maybe around 5 mph such as when slowing down for a speed bump and accelerating again, when accelerating the Murano will make a distinct booming/rumbling noise like the engine is lugging.

Also, this issue happened from day 1 from the night I drove the car off the dealer lot at 32 miles. I thought it will go away after the car breaks in but now I'm at 3000 miles and it's still the same thing. I will address this to the dealer, and I hope they have a fix.

I did a simple Google search and I found many complaints similar to mine, and some say Nissan states that this is normal, but I hope Nissan will realize that this kind of vibration is unacceptable, it makes the car seem very unrefined.

And Nissan, just so you know, a new Murano Platinum is not exactly cheap, at $38k I could have bought a lot of other cars, I could have bought a new base model Lexus ES350 or a used Lexus RX350. And I bet the powertrain will be more refined in the Lexus. Or I could have bought a loaded Toyota RAV4 Hybrid and saved 4 grand.
