I believe the two buttons low on the dash left of the steering column are for raising each side of the split rear seats if the seat backs have been lowered.
The SL does have an 8 way power driver seat. (Controls are on the seat down on the left side). The front passenger seat is a 4 way power seat if the Leather package is on the car. (according to Nissan's specification chart at http://www.nissanusa.com/murano/specifications.html)
Are you looking for the Memory seat function? That is only on the LE trim level.
#645 of 686 New owner of SL almost fully loaded!
Mar 27, 2010 (5:24 am)
Just got a silver 2010 SL which has everything except Nav and DVD entertainment system. Love the comfortable seats!
I thought I read somewhere that there is an auxilary port for the IPOD Touch/iPhones?? The salesman and I can't find any and when I poured over the manual after we got the vehicle home, I can't find any mention of the iPOD port at all, except for the three for video/audio at the back of the center console??
A few other questions:
1) The biz manager offered us leather/interior protection for $40... that's a spray of "A-Glaze" which is what I think he said. It guarantees 5 year of stain free protection of all your interior vinyl and leather... I can't find it at Auto Zone, but found it online at http://www.aglaze.com/product.asp?productid=460&subcategoryid=112&categoryid=1
Has anyone used this and swears by this? It appears from England as the prices are in pounds. If not, what do you use to protect your Murano leather? I used Lexol in my other vehicle (TSX) and my wife rightly states that I haven't had to do anything to my leather seats since my first application in 2006 (when I purchased that vehicle) and thought it would be a waste... I disagree as my TSX was bought when I was single and was taking really good care of the car... the Murano will be the family car and hopefully with little pitter and patter of feet so I'd like to protect the leather early on before it's too late!
2) We bought the Gold preferred extended warranty for $1800 + sales tax... is this taxable or did we just got screwed? This warranty extends the bumper to bumper from 3yrs to 7yrs/100,000 miles. The biz manager was going to offer us $2000+ but we negotiated it down to $1800 (not sure what others are paying?)
3) i found it strange that the dealership would make you acknowledge by signing a form stating that they've offered their lifetime powertrain warranty to us for $499 and that we declined. we thought that it was redundant, especially when we were going to buy the bumper to bumper extended warranty... have any of you taken this?

A good leather cleaner will take care of the interior - buying protection for any amount is like throwing the $ away.
When we bought my wife's 09 LE they tried to sell us everything extra in the book - we had them down to less than $1K on the extended warranty but still wouldn't buy it - rained on the guys parade. Again, extended warranties are a waste of $ - check Consumer Reports - they always advise against them.
In all of our rejections, we initialled off on the form that they offered, and we declined - it's a CYA for them since all of the "extras" are pure profit for the dealership and the sales guy has to try to push them.

Dealers will say they do that to protect themselves from someone claiming they weren't offered an opportunity to buy an extended warranty (especially when something expensive breaks just out of warranty).
I think that's mostly hokey though and is mainly part of the sales technique to get you buy stuff. But some dealers to install cameras to record transactions in the F&I room to record the deal signing. After all, dealers are stealers, but buyers are liars.
But if that theory held much water, dealers wouldn't be willing to deliver cars to people's homes and places of business, and they do that all the time.

cestmoijay, As I understand, only the LE trim level has the iPod control. (in 2009 Nissan briefly offered a "360" package of options on the SLs that included the iPod control, but that does not exist on the 2010 model year). You CAN attach an iPod at the AUX port at the back of the console to play through the Murano's speakers, but you cannot control the iPod from the audio controls in the car - you have to use the iPod controls. You do have to select the AUX input on the car's audio system.
--Bob (who also wanted iPod controls on his Murano SL, but was too cheap to pay for an LE)

#650 of 686 what's the video input for

i have one more question, for the SL, what is the video input jack for? does that mean we can play video through the AUX jacks and shows up on the console screen?
#651 of 686 Re: 2009 Murano SL AWD engine squealing noise [kjsmitty]
Apr 25, 2010 (6:57 pm)
I have a 2009 Murano SL AWD. Since the day I got the car I heard the squealing noise. The first time I went to the dealership they thought I was crazy. I than found out about the TSB and went back to the dealership and they performed the TSB repair. However the noise did not go away. I went back a third time and they said they made another adjustment. However the noise did not go away. I called my service advisor and told him it was not fixed. He told me that there was nothing else they could do and to call Nissan. I called Nissan and they advised me to bring the car in again to the dealership. I brought it in again and they called the Nissan tech repair line and was told that the TSB would not get rid of the noise but would reduce it and that they consider the noise as normal. I am really frustrated that I am driving a $40K vehicle that squeals when I accelerate. How can this be normal. I owned a 2005 Nissan Murano before my 2009 and it did not squeal. I believe that since the 2009 Murano was a new re-designed model that it was a design flaw and it has been corrected in later production. It is obvious that Nissan knows there is a problem since they issued a TSB. I do not feel that I should have to drive a car that squeals. When I bought the car it did not specify on the window sticker or brochure that the car included a squealing noise. I guess I have no choice but to file the lemon law. Does anyone have experience with this issue?
#652 of 686 whistling noise
Apr 26, 2010 (6:27 am)
In March 2009 when my lease was up on my 2006 SL, I leased an 09 LE. In about a month, when the weather finally cleared enough to allow me to roll down the windows, I noticed a "whistling" that seemed to occur upon low acceleration. I contacted the dealer, who like you, looked at me as if I was crazy, also telling me it was normal. I think I probably went back & forth with the dealer almost a half dozen times to finally get it taken care of. I did a search on the internet which is how I ended up at this forum. It was here I found out about the service bulletin. Kinda blown away that I had to tell the Nissan dealer what was wrong with my car and also how to fix it. I'm wondering if its the same, or different service bulletin. This is the information written up on my work order: "SERVICE BULLETIN NTB08-104 2009 WHISTLE NOISE ON LIGHT ACCEL INTERNAL FAILURE IN THE THROTTLE CONTROL ACTUATOR GASKET. PERFORMED SERVICE BULLETIN NTB08-104 REPLACED GASKET AND REPOSITION ACUTATOR GASKET.
I LOVED my 2006 murano. Kinda pissed that my first 5 months in my new one were not that great. Good luck to you. Hope it works out okay

They performed the same TSB. Did they get rid of your noise completely? I was told that the TSB was only to reduce the noise and not eliminate it. I was also told by Nissan that the noise is normal. How could it be normal? I was told by the Service manager that you can only hear it if your windows are down and the radio is off. I never owned a car that made this noise. I even had a 2005 Murano and it did not make the noise.
