I don't know who is addressing the problems/concerns which are posted. On a few occasions I have posted about several issues I have had for several reasons, not just to rag on Nissan but to see if any other owners have had the same problem and how and if it was resolved successfully. I have also stated my opinion, and that is all it is is - an OPINION, about the dealership's high labor costs, cavalier attitude about concerns brought to their attention and unwillingness to work with customers. It seems like the most important thing to them is to SELL their vehicles, not service them. They don't seem to get it that people can go anywhere and negotiate a good price for a vehicle. What will bring them back to a particular dealership is the courtesy and professionalism displayed by their service staff! In the time I have had my 2003 Murano, I have used two dealerships, the second for convenience in regard to my employment. During this time the dealerships have gone through countless service managers. To me, this tells a story of people not interested in doing their job well. If you are having no problems with YOUR Murano, good for you. Perhaps you got lucky - or the kinks had been worked out by the time you got yours. Mine was purchased in 2003 - I would never purchase any vehicle in its first model year again, Nissan or otherwise.

If your '05 Murano is still perfect 90K then why would you bother to comment in the "Nissan Murano Maintenance and Repair" category?
The majority that came here several years ago were searching for answers because of the unusual problems we were running into and the exhorbitant repair costs. Things that are not common to other Mfg'rs. vehicles.
When the Murano was introduced it was a unique vehicle with a lot of new technologies that were supposed to set a new standard in motor vehicles.
It was a failure. The Murano & Nissan have not gotten enough bad press today because of Toyota's problems over shadowing and the Murano has become the new yuppie "Kool-Aide" drinking cult car. It is billed as environmentally correct; etc.
If your read back thru my posts, you will find that I have offered a great deal of technical advice of how I delt with repairs; and, tried to do it on a "working man's" budget.
I have offered correct advice through out; No one has ever disputed that my recommendations on repairs were incorrect. Many have thanked me for helping them out.
It is unfortunate that people like you keep returning, accusing those of us who have suffered as "Nissan owners", of being "hostile commentators".
When your Murano starts to crap out you may return and we will take you under our loving care and help you thru it.
Maybe you're the one who has hostility issues - I don't know - it is not for me to judge and then insult.
Until then, best of luck!

I had to use the same approach. Two dealers; one was better than the other.
Unfortunately, the better dealer could not overcome the louzy car quality.
It is not an opinion, but an experience.
When my Murano's repair cost passed the $12K mark I had to stop the bleeding and get rid of it. It would have been more if I had not done a lot of the repairs myself.
I think I may have to start a website that offers nothing but pure counceling for Nissan owners.

Here is the comapny info for the CAT:
Eastern Manufacturing, Inc.
2151 Cabot Blvd. West
Langhorne, PA 19047-1808
Note: I discovered an oil leak problem prevalent with Murano engines. I do not know exactly where the source is; but, oil is leaking into the left bank converter and causing contamination. Once the platininum is saturated with hydrocarbons the ceramics over heat and will crumble and clogg up your exhaust pipe. This will cause more problems so get it taken care of soon. Try a Midas shop. Take the CAT you purchased to them and they will take care of the labor.
It can be done by yourself; but, it is a tricky job. Needs lots of sockets, swivels and extensions; and patience.
After your done, sell the car. The problem will re-ocurr. Good luck.
#2297 of 2342 Coolant what type is correct -DEX-Cool?
May 20, 2011 (10:24 am)
I brought my 2006 Murano (70,000 miles) to a independent service organization.
I asked if they had the correct Antifreeze they verified they had what I needed.
They used "Dex-cool" it appears there are many types/colors of Dex-cool. My original coolant was Green and the replacement is green also. I do not know what brand they used. Is Dex-cool acceptable replacement?

Last post in January 2011 was called "hostile" by seemingly endless contributor and now Toyata ? salesman and chief executive named "MIKES MURANO" and so here is a six month followup on our 05,now 93,000 and bulletproof. I was assaulted (I can take it) for putting in positive Nissan Murano comments on a site for "problems", but the site should be at least "fair" and all I said was that our Murano has been faultless. Maybe we were lucky, maybe it was built on a sober Wednesday, maybe we drive it more carefully. All I can say is that it is a great vehicle, and everything we could expect. July 2011. Six month followup in December.
