I'm finally turning off my tracking for this issue. Nissan did reimburse me for the cost of my transmission at 68k miles in my '05 Murano (which went out 2 yrs ago). My dealer acknowleged the problem back then and I only paid half of the $5,800 cost. So, I was fully reimbursed and I used the money to put down on a 2010 GMC Acadia. Decided to buy American this time. Wish me luck!

May I ask, how much was the repair for your windshield wiper motor? My driver side one occasionally stops working and now, last friday, stopped all together. Super annoying. Taking it to the dealership but I don't really want to get railed so I'm looking for an average price.

I just bought a used 2003 Murano, and it's doing the same thing. It didn't do it during the test drive but it's done it ever since i purchased it.

I have a 2000 Nisson Serena with a CVT. It gets stuck in low when in slow or stop and go traffic. It will not dissengage unless i stop and turn off the van for 20 minutes. It also slips into as high ratio after going up inclines, almost like an anti-slip mode. Whats wrong and can it be easily fixed?

Last week my 2006 Murano stopped in the middle of the road. I managed to push it off the road and get it towed to the dealer. I am on 104,000 miles but Nissan customer service confirmed that I was covered for the extended warranty for all CVT issues. It turns out that the problem is the CVT. But now the dealership it telling me that the oil in the CVT is not the "red" "Nissan" oil but some other oil, Well I have no idea what oil is in there as I never change it myself, so of course I am seeking an answer from my previous servicers, but that is not the issue here. The issue is Nissan are not able to tell me that the failure of the CVT was caused by the oil, but they are using it to get out of a warranty repair of a "known" problem. Any ideas??

I have a 2003 Murano which now has about 57 thousand on it. I had an accident in 2007 and transmission went out. Truth be known it was going out before accident. Car was towed from accident and make a long story short got it back from repair shop 2 and a half months later and transmission was gone. It was towed over to Nissan dealer who said someone had put wrong fluid in. Well I pitched a fit and told them other then the accident I had always taken it to Nissan dealer to fix and they finally agreed to fix. Out of the bottom of their hearts they said they decided it wasn't my fault. Keep after them. It's a load of crap...

Hello All, I believe my Murano is finally fixed. I am not the original owner, but after owning this SUV for a year I know why the previous owner sold it. Nearly all Murano 03-07 will have a CVT issue at some point. Mine happens to be the legend, "4-5 second delayed acceleration after driving in hot weather or stuck in stop & go traffic". I live in Co so during the fall/winter months I didn't have this issue. Summer is here and it was getting annoying. So I decided to research on getting this fixed or trading in.
I found out that Nissan extended the CVT warranty to 10 years/120k miles. Smart way for Nissan to avoid a Recall, and avoid national news (Bastards!) I took it to my local Nissan, and the gal knew that my problem was CVT related right off the bat. They pull the ECM codes and it came up with P0868. This is related to the valve body inside the transmission. Only the dealer can fix this b/c reprogramming is required after valve body replacement. I was lucky enough to have this covered under warranty b/c it would have been a very large bill!!
So far after the repair I haven't had a problem. Here's the link to the extended warranty. http://www.nissanassist.com/ProgramDetails.php?menu=2

Good to hear. Did you have to pay a diagnostic fee first?
