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

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.

#11 of 27 Break Squeak
Jun 26, 2008 (5:05 am)
I've had the same problems with my 09 Murano that started about a month after I bought the car. EXTREMELY loud screeching in reverse. Car doesn't have to be cold either, it happens every time. Pulling out of the driveway, at the grocery store, everywhere. It is the most embarrassing vehicle to drive. I've been given the run around by the dealer and the Nissan 1 line. Now they won't call me back. I'm so mad about the situation I don't know what to do. Does anyone have any suggestions? Can I return it and get my money back? I would do it in a second. I knew I should have gotten the Lexus, but I was sold by the price and all the new gadgets. My car also makes a high pitched humm when I'm accelerating. Very annoying for me. It happens at every speed, but only at certain rpms. it is usually around 2000 or 2500 rpms. has anyone else experienced this? Again this is something they told me is "a normal characteristic of this vehicle". They say mine is unusually loud and they don't know why. What a joke.

Is the screeching sound coming from the front of the car or from the rear. I will guess it's from the front and may be one of the belts. Tension on the belt could adjusted or the belt replaced to eliminate the sound. I'm a little concerned that the dealer wouldn't even have a look at it when it's a brand new vehicle.

I don't know about the hum but I had the brake "squeal" from day one. I finally brought it in over a year later in mid May of this year. They replaced the front brake pads and rotors under warranty. It has been fine since eliminating that embarrassing noise. I have detected a very slight squeal on rare occasions but it's nothing I can't live with. Nissan definitely has a fix for the problem. They just won't come running to you to offer to do the work. I would just call them and let them know that you are aware that this is a problem with the Murano and that you want it corrected.
#14 of 27 I can't beleive it happened to me.
