I was ready to go to battle with Nissan after my 2004 started having the same problem with the hesitation. To make a long story short the air hose was not secure and I was not getting the right mix of fuel and air. The second time I called the Nissan dealership the first thing they asked was had I checked my air hose and sure enough that was the problem. Maybe it is a common problem with Muranos. It is worth a try.

I own a 2004 Nissan Murano. The CVT failed at 125,000 miles, NO HELP FROM NISSAN! At 205,000 miles its failing again. I' m not going to dump another $5,000 int6o this car. Is Nissan doing anything to make good on this problem.

God, this problem has got me so MAD I bought a 2003 murano 6 months ago with only 65,000 miles, we need it a good reliable vehicle, couple of months after this CVT problem has started at 71,000 miles, I'm so angry at Nissan for not recognizing that they own this transmission problem.

I think class actions are better suited (ha!) for small amounts. I'm not sure what amount is too small, but most bar associations will hook you up with a cheap or free initial consultation and you can talk to a local lawyer and see if it's worth the time and effort to chase your local dealer and/or Nissan. Or your local Consumer Protection Agency may have an auto division that could give you some advice.
You might get some satisfactory resolution faster that way, instead of waiting a few years and winding up with a $500 coupon off your next purchase of a Nissan. (link and link)
#85 of 709 Same problem
May 07, 2008 (8:47 pm)
I purchased a 2003 Nissan Murano last summer. What a mistake I thought I was getting a a highly rated safe car. My 17 year old daughter was almost killed last week due to a stall in an intersection. Same problem after coming to a stop the car didnt want to go. This car only has 62,000 miles on it. Nissan customer service acted like they had never heard of this problem. I am so glad I found this web sight I will tell everyone I know about this problem and report it. I have an extended warranty through an outside company they are coming to dealership to decide if they are going to cover it. If they wont I will trade it in and never buy Nissan again. They do recalls on seat belts, but not on this a life or death problem with the transmission. This is so frustrating they know of the problem but wont face up to it.

Nissan will NEVER own up to this problem because it would cost them millions of dollars to settle this. I will never buy another Nissan product and everyone I talk to about this vehicle I explain the "We didn't know that" attitude of the dealers. This car company is a bunch of rip off artists in disquise. Who can afford the extremely high replacement cost of a transmission in these economic times. Enough of my ranting.....Can you imagine what would have happened if your daughter was injured because of this defect? I've reported this to the NTSB and nothing has happened yet. Are they waiting for someone to die??? Good luck with your problem, I guess I am bitter to these crooks!!
#87 of 709 One possible solution . . .
May 19, 2008 (6:44 am)
On the recommendation of our local dealer, we tried another option to replacing the transmission. We replaced the seals and serviced the transmission with a synthetic transmission fluid. He said they had seen good results with this, so I gave it a try. The cost was about $1200.
So far so good. We've not had the hesitation in the transmission since this was done. Here's hopinjg it holds.
On the bad side, they also replaced the air filter and failed to properly attach the housing for the filter. As a result, the engine was getting too much air and my car died on the way to getting onto a ship for a 7-day cruise. Fortunately, the CA dealer knew what the problem was and fixed it for us so we made our ship. Apparently, this is a common mistake made when servicing Muranos.
