#167 of 231 Failure of 2006 Murano Driver Seat
Apr 08, 2011 (10:30 am)
After owning the car for just over a year, this comes along. Dealer wants $1000.00 to replace poorly designed metal bracket, towards the rear of the seat. Waiting for Nissan to give me some good news on fixing the problem. Dealer also advised me, that both A arm bushings, and struts need to be replaced as well. Grand total $2900.00!! This car has 80,000 miles on it. Can't wait to see what the next 20,000 miles will bring.

I have a 2007 with a broken seat frame, driver's side. Getting nowhere with my dealership and with Nissan Corporate. Any advice would be appreciated.

Live in South Dakota but I am having the same problem. 2005 Murano - $1318 estimated repair, going to try to find replacement parts at salvage yard and do it myself I guess.

This was previously posted but FYI you can now just get the part that breaks. I got it from the dealer for $116. Took a couple hours to disassemble the seat and to replace the part. The new part is much more reinforced that the original and I doubt it will break again.
The part is 87473-CA01A (Drivers Seat Lifter Assembly)

Nissan consumer affairs has given me the news I was looking for. As they put it, " As a good will gesture, we will replace the driver side seat bracket." No Charge!

Hi Cali22 - Who did you contact at Nissan about this issue? Our 2006 Murano seat just failed and I certainly think it's worth a try. Glad to see someone is having luck convincing Corporate that this is a serious design flaw that needs fixing.

That's encouraging news. I'd appreciate it if you could post the applicable contact information (number, name, case/file #) at Nissan Consumaer Affairs so that others may have an opportunity for a similar outcome. Thanks!
