This is my first time here. I am here since I have a problem with the brake system of my 07 Murano. It makes noise everytime it is in reverse.
Dealer has tried to fix the problem 3 time already but without success.
I then sent the manufacture and Florida Office of Attorney both a "Defect Notification" and allowed them to try one more time. They did...
It was fine for couple days after I got it back from the dealer but ............the problem has come back. It is actually louder than before.
I am filing a complaint thr. BBB Autoline
I am here to ask for advices if you have been through this process before.
My questions are:
What must I do next?
Should I hire a lawyer?
Any good lawyer that you would recommend to handle my case?
Again, I live in Florida

The problem with the brakes squealing in reverse has existed since day one with the Murano and I don't believe they have a fix for it. I also have an '07 and the last time I had it in for an oil change I mentioned the problem. They told me Nissan would have a solution in a month but I think it was a bunch of bs.
You should probably be more concerned about potential problems with the transmission.
Good luck with the car.

it is only the 07 with the problem. I have an 07 which I like very much except for the reverse brake squeak. I've gotten the same promise that Nissan is working on it and the service rep promises to call the minute they get a solution. No luck after 9 months and numerous inquiries and 2 attempts to fix it. I've become very good at backing without hitting the brakes. I can't say it's a deal breaker for me, but it's darn close. Too bad for an otherwise very decent vehicle, but I don't recommend the Murano when people ask.

I am crossing my fingers that my latest brake fix will be long term. I called last week and the service guy claimed they had a repair. Had it done and so far, so good. It is quiet when I back up. Not sure what they did. Last time I took in they worked on the brakes, but the squeak was back immediately. I am into it 3 days and it's holding. As I said, I'm crossing my fingers.

I own a 2007 Murano and have had the "squealing brakes" issue from day one. It always happens in reverse and sometimes in drive on initial startup. I find it very embarrassing as my squeal is very loud. I called NIssan the other day to get the issue resolved. When I brought it in a tech took a ride with me and we could not create the problem which really didn't surprise me since it was early afternoon and the car was fairly warm. He asked me if I thought it was a safety issue and I said no but I didn't think a car of this caliber should behave like a Yugo! Anyway, he had me agree that it was a "cold" brake problem meaning it only occurs when the car has not been driven for two hours or more. I had the work done and have had no squeal since. It is such a pleasure now to back up, hit the brakes, and hear nothing. I'm sure the neighbors are happy too!

my brake fix is not working. The squeak in reverse is coming back. Same thing that happened the first time I had it repaired. Very disappointed!

Actually, after my recent fix, my brake squeak only happens after the car sits overnight.. . .so the new fix is an improvement, so far. While it's not a complete fix, it's better than nothin'.
#9 of 27 09 Murano - mushy soft brakes
Jun 14, 2008 (4:52 pm)
My Murano has 200 miles and since the day I picked it up from the dealer I felt the brakes were mushy or too soft. The brakes feel very soft compared to my old Maxima.
Usually I have to press on the brake about 1/2 inch before I feel anything braking effect.
I brought this at the dealership when I bought the car and the salesperson told me maybe it was because it too new.

It sounds like you may have air in your brake lines and that is easily resolved by a process called "bleeding." It's a simple procedure and the dealership should certainly know better.
