I am new to this fourm I have 2009 Murano LE with 700 miles on it, and I am having a vibration. I traded in a 2006 with 30,000 miles on it never had a problem. I hope I did not make a mistake. Has your dealer been able to get rid of the vibration? What have they tried? I have an appt on Tuesday of this week for a clicking in the steering wheel and am going to tell them about this vibration I did not buy a $40,000 car to have this problem. Thanks for any update that you can give me.

I am new to this fourm I have 2009 Murano LE with 700 miles on it, and I am having a vibration between 40-70 MPH I have it at the dealers for the last 2 days. First they call me and tell me they did not feel the vibration so I had to drive 56 miles back to the dealership this morning and drove it with a service tech and he felt the vibration said he would balance the tirers and we would be ok. They call me 3 hours later and tell me it is still there they have a call into Nissan. I am ready to loose my mind.... I traded in an 06 SL with 30,000 miles never was in the shop. I don't know what they are going todo. IF any of you are having this problem what has been done to fix it, or has Nissan bought it back? Thank you in advance for any help you can offer. I really like this Murano but I will not have a $40,205.00 car with a vibration. Oh, ya the best part is they gave me a KIA MINI VAN for a loaner!! It has not vibration.

Just bought a 2009 LE (4/28/2009) and am experiencing a subtle shake or vibration at almost all speeds above 30 mph. When I test drove one, I mentioned the slight shake to the salesperson (NissanWorld of Springfield, NJ) and he said it was likely that the car was not serviced yet. My 2009 LE exhibited the same shake (almost like you're always riding on a sligtly bumpy road). I brought it back to the dealer on 4/30/08 and drove it with a service tech. He confirmed the sensation and we then drove another LE, which exhibited the same behavior. I'm in the process of contacting Nissan Customer Care and the tech is contacting Nissan tech support to see if thee are any known issues,etc. Could it be the tires? Mine has Toyo 20" Is it the CVT transmission? The service tech said it may be a trans issue. Anybody else experiencing this problem? I love the vehicle - it's perfect in every way - but the ride is not nearly as nice as my 2004 Murano.

I don't know what they are going todo, I was thinking tonight about it being the CVT. This CVT is so much different then the one in my 2006 SL sometime if feels like it has a shift to it, and we know that is not the case. I too have 20" Toyo. I will keep my posting up to date on what happens with mine, please do the same so other who are having this problem all can have it taken care of. We all spent alot of money on these Murano and Nissan needs to stand behind what they are selling. I am going to give my dealer till Friday 5-2-2008 before I call Nissan customer service to open a ticket on this problem. It's such a nice looking SUV and they made some great changes but if they don't fix this vibration they can KEEP IT!

Keep pushing. I already contacted Nissan customer care and opened a ticket. The service tech at my dealer said to let the vehicle "break-in" and that the Toyo tires might be compressed from being strapped down. I hope he's right, as it is an awesome vehicle in every respect - except the ride. It almost feels like something is "rumbling" underneath you - especially when you're driving down a dead-flat, freshly paved road that you know is glass-smooth. Is that what you're experiencing?

I have an update as of today, I got a phone call from my dealer telling me they had to replace all for Toyo tires and that the vibration is gone. I picked it up and I have to say it is much better then it was almost 100%, I think they have to much air in the tires so once the cool down I am going to check them and drive it again. At some points I wonder if the vibration is coming from the CVT it feels so much different then my 06. I will keep you posted. Just as and FYI I also found another good website called NISSANMURANO.ORG I have also posted on it.
Thanks for taken time to post your update.

Thanks for the info. Strange - I mentioned the tires to my service tech, but not the brand. He said "What do you have, Michelin, Bridgestone?" I said "No, Toyo." And he replied that those were high end tires. I find it a littel hard to believe that Toyo makes a better tire than Michelin or Bridgestone but I could be wrong. Anybody know?

Well guys as of today it is still not fixed. I drove it about 60 miles and it still have a vibration at speeds above 40. I just wonder if it could be the CVT. Has anyone felt a shifting like feeling on the new 09 CVT? sometimes I get that feeling. When I am going up hill and I let the speed get to 40-42 this vibration is very noticable. It give me a sick feeling in my belly! I don't know if that from knowing that I have to pay for something that is not right, or just the feeling!! I am off to another dealer to drive an LE to see how it drives.
I have an appointment with service manager on Wednesday that was the frist they could see me.
What do you guys/gals think of the CVT?? for those that had a 06 model years my CVT never felt like it was shifting I can't talk about other years don't know if they were the same as my old 06, if I would have know this I would have kept it..
Well I just got back from driving another LE at a dealership closer to home, and it has the same vibration at the 40+mph speed. What is going on? I almost sh when I started down the road and I felt it. Maybe this is something that the new model year is going to do. I know I am not happy with it.

So the tire change made no difference? I'm almost convinced that my problem is a tire/rim type of issue. Took my 09 LE on a flat side street and drove it really slow (about 3-5mph) and it seems to "wobble" slightly during each tire rotation. This street had a very mild grade, so I went to the end and came back, this time in neutral (to eliminate the trans) and the slight wobble is still there! I've had no "shifting" type issues - it's just that "rumbling" feeling I get at higher speeds - which would make sense if something was "out of line". Please describe what you're experiencing as best as possible. Thanks!
