I'm having a terrible time w/ my 2010 rogue SL AWD. They had to replace my transmission after two days. No joke, two day after I purchased my car it started vibrating every time I would turn a corner. They replaced the transmission and I'm having the same problem again, only not as often. Please don't get me started with how I was treated by consumer affairs. They came just short of telling me to go kick rocks

I think in order for them to listen, if each American who was planning to buy Nissan car put it away for one month, may be their attitude would change.

You have to talk with your wallet. It looks like there are some real bargins on Nissan's right now. Just think how many repeat customers they are losing with problems with CVT"s and poor customer service attitude. I lost a bundle on the whole mess but it's worth to be away from worrying about what will happen next, how long will I be without a vehicle, will they actually fix it right this time and how much will it cost me this time. I don't envy you starting out with problems so soon. Good luck to you.

hey Stealth- yes the truedelta sight is interesting, because they have owners reporting on all of the SUVs out there pretty much. The SUVs with the highest problem rates overall are the Chevy Equinox and the Ford Edge. The SUVs with the lowest number of problems are the Toyota Venza and the Honda CRV. Nissan Murano overall falls in the middle. The Honda CRV road noise is too high for me and the Toyota Venza ( or however its spelled) doesn't appeal to me in the least ( subjective obviously on my part).
#510 of 695 2007 Murano CVT
Sep 07, 2010 (4:14 am)
The CVT maybe a problem on the higher mileage cars, i was leasing 2007 Murano for 39 month, outside of the oil changes and 1 set of brakes i have not done anything else to the car, The CVT worked well for me and i do tend to have a heavy foot from time to time, with that said that does not mean the problem does not exist and nissan should own up to it, but like many others said it all depends how the car was taken care of and how it was driven, also this may not even be a consideration for people like me who are leasing the car and withing the time of the lease due to the car being new most likely will not see any problems.
#511 of 695 Nissan CVT Customer Satisfaction Program - EXPIRED
Sep 12, 2010 (4:27 pm)
Unfortunately I just learned that there was a Nissan CVT Customer Satisfaction Program today, but it expired 7/31/2010 (6 weeks ago). Of course Nissan never reached out to their customers and informed them of the program. The program included full reimbursement for those of us who already paid $6k to have a transmission replaced if it failed before the new extended warranty duration of 10 yrs/120k miles was reached.
Has anyone had success since 7/31/2010 (program termination date) on getting a reimbursement? if so, I'd appreciate any advice.

I have the FWD version and NO problems with 62k miles. Love it - I just change the oil. Brakes even lasted 60k miles, tires 50k. Nissan service at Robbins in Humble, TX is 1st class.
Have owned several 4WD vehicles in the past with the following experience:
4WD Mazda minivan - replaced transmission at 39k miles, $3600, out of warranty. So much for Japanese reliability
4WD Plymouth minivan - serviced and rebuilt trans under warranty twice, then at 60k or so miles, it died out of warranty
4WD Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo, which never had a problem during our 3 yr, 40k mile lease.
The lesson I learned: Unload a 4WD vehicle before it is out of warranty.

I have a 2003 Murano; I loved the car. For most part, the shape design, interior, and the advanced Trans., the tires were always problematic, never lasting more than 25,000 miles. Few months ago I started to have strange problems. That was if I have made many stops the car would have a hard time engaging to another gear is if it were stuck. On my annual visit to the dealer, to change all the belts, I have informed him of the recurring problem. After leaving the car for a day, I was told that there is nothing wrong with the car. This just made my day. However, just a few days ago, while entering the HWY, it happened again. This time we would have almost lost our lives; it was a close one. After a day of diagnosis the dealer informed me that it is a possible valve body in transmission that needs to be replaced. I have contacted corporate headquarters and began the case file. After reading all testimonies, looks that this is a common problem with this car, and Nissan is downplaying most of the complains. Any suggestions?

Nissan cars used to look good and last long. Todays Nissan still maybe looks good but is not a good car. Probably Hynday is better at least you get 100,000 miles warranty.
