#304 of 709 Banging Noise in the rear of my car
Nov 10, 2009 (4:50 pm)
I am thankful for these postings. I am calling the dealership tomorrow because I took the car to my mechanic today and he told me it was the transmission. Hopefully they do not give me any problems. The noise just started the other day. And it sounds like something was banging under the back of my car. I was not going at a high speed it was just driving in the neighbor. I have a 2005 Nissan Murano with under 60,000 miles. And it sounds like very similar problems that was discussed on the site. Is there currently a class action suit or was this just approved by Nissan to correct the problems because I have not received any recall letters.Do anyone have any recommendations. Thanks kjs

Maybe this is old news...but if it helps here it goes....
"Yes, it is true. Nissan USA has set up a website with all the information regarding the CVT Extended Warranty:
Owners who have paid to have their CVT's repaired may also be eligible for reimbursement if it occurred under the new warranty terms: 10yr/120k. Click the above link for more information.

I like the CVT technology, I think with time and the commitment by Nissan to take responsibility eventually will lead to a finely tuned piece of engineering that all manufactures will jump to.
Have you ever drive away at the stop light from someone with a supped up car which has a third or sometimes twice times the power and they cannot catch you for the next 60 meters?
That is attributed to the CVT tranny, the shifting is so very transparent that you could go from 0 to 60 without even noticing it.
I own a 2005 SL MO and so far so good except for the front drivers seat.
The seat frame broke at 40000 and I am getting these rediculous quotes of between $600 and $1000 to repair same.
I noticed that this is even a bigger issues that the CVT and this is something that Nissan should look into ASAP.
Just imaging someone hitting your from behind, with a broken seat i doubt that the seat belt is going to stop you from going through that windshield. if you have a head on then god forbit what muight happen.
I mad a complain to the NTSB regaring this. Since it is pandemic I think Nissan should recall it or do something like the CVT gesture.
I still love my Mo..

I lost the transmission on my 2004 SE AWD Murano 50,000 in Dec. '06. The Local Nissan dealer denied it as a warranty claim and suggested I contact my insurance company as it appeared that there had been damage to the undercarriage of the vehicle. With 14 yrs claim adjusting experience, I knew this was not the case...but reported it to my insurance company to rule out all possibilities. Against my better advisement, and in an effort to take the easy way out, my insurance company paid for the replacement of the transmission as Nissan continued to deny warranty coverage. Total cost of repair was about $7100...of which 1600 was my responsibility.
Now, we (Murano Owners) receive this letter advising of "a small percentage" of complaints. To that I say...bullhonky! A quick internet search shows not only a class action lemon law case in NJ, but numerous complaints with the CVT. Nissan knew, or should have known, of the problems and accepted responsibility some time ago. Their letter and the unheard of "doubling" of the warranty is, in my opinion, an admission of liability. I have turned this letter over to my insurance carrier to seek reimbursement. I have been a loyal Nissan owner for over 13 yrs...no longer though. They have lost me, friends, relatives and anyone who will listen as a customer.

My drivers seat broke too! estimates 800+ to repair.... Good idea with the NTSB.... I like the murano as well, very versatile, but when you pay 30k+ for a vehicle you certainly expect better.
