I'm in the same boat you are in but with a 2003 Nissan Murano the first of its kind. At first I taught it was just me, but it looks like is not. My transmissions gave up after my warranty and I had to pay out of pocket, almost $5,000. Now Nissan has a reimbursement plan for those who don't know about it ,let me know I'll port the info., however they are not calling it a recall. Needless to say that the transfer case also gave up in the middle of the road shortly after (a few miles later) that I had to tow my car to the nearest gas station, and I had to pay again another $3,000. I'm talking to Nissan now, but they told me that the transfer case is not part of the transmission. But I've been told that it is. And thats how I found your blog. I'm waiting for another call from them this Monday April 05, 2010. But I definitely want them to acknowledge that my entire family's life has been in danger because of this faulty parts. If you need my testimonies I'll be glad to help you, and I have all the documents to prove it.

Mikey, who is telling you there is no warranty? A Nissan dealer? or some mechanic trying to sell you unnecessary services? There certainly is a warranty, and in fact Nissan a few months ago extended the warranty for all Murano CVT transmissions to 10 years or 120,000 miles in the United States. (in other countries too, I'm told, but I don't know the details outside the US)
#459 of 693 Nissan Murano 2003 AWL Tranny Problems Any help will be appreciated
Apr 17, 2010 (8:28 pm)
I have the check engine light pop up and the car started draging at the stop lights 2 weeks ago, took it to the dealer the dealer found the code for Transmission pressure sensor and told me it is covered under warranty upto 120 k miles. So I told them to fix it after 1 week I get a call from the dealer (Clearlake Houston TX Nissan) they can't get the tranny out because all the brackets for cat convertes are rusted and they have to cut through them to get the tranny out and that will cost me 5K to fix it and Nissan won't pay for it since it is not a part of the tranny. I opened a claim case with Nissan and told them that they won't have to cut through all that, if they have not designed that faulty tranny, but they won't budge. I still owe 10K on this car and can't afford to spend another 5K in this economy. I have been fighting hard with Nissan, so far they have not budge.
Any help in regards to whom to contact e-mail address info will be helpful. Any kind of info that can ease my Murano nightmare will be helpful.

So basically your dealer want $5,000 to cut through some rusty brackets? I think you need a new dealer. Or find a welding shop who would probably do that for less than $100. (Heck, a local Midas shop used a welding torch to burn off some plastic trash bags that stuck to the converters on my minivan at no charge! )
Or are your catalytic converters bad and not your CVT? Are you still within the long warranty on emission equipment? (8 years and 80,000 miles on catalytic converters, according to Nissan's 2006 Warranty Information Booklet.)

Thanks for the reply. My car has 93000 miles on it. The dealer won't touch my car unless I sign the papers. I have no problems with the CAT converters or the exhaust system so far.
The Local AAmco Trans shop quoted me $1200 for the labor to replace the tranny but Nissan won't ship the tranny to them, they say they can only ship it to a Nissan dealer.

Isn't your Murano covered by the revised waranty from Nissan?
I have an '06 Murano, and I received a letter that the tranny is now covered for 10 years and 120,000 miles. Do you know about this?
