#11 of 28 SAFETY WARNING--KEYLESS
Nov 12, 2009 (7:46 am)
I own a 2009 Nissan Murano, I left the car running at a valet infront of a hotel in philadelphia, I took the FOB in my hand, and was handing it off to the valet when someone jumped in and stole the car! Apparantly these cars with keyless systems will keep going as long as the engine is running, they do not shut off if they are not within range! NEVER LEAVE YOUR CHILD IN THE CAR AND THE CAR RUNNING! I was lucky, noone was in the car. Then the crackhead, went to a nissan dealer and had himself a new key programmed for my car. Most likely using the registration card in the glove box, and the nissan employee to stupid to realize a crackhead would not afford that car! no red flag there! Then worse than getting the car stolen, the car was recovered. Now its my problem again! Nightmare! I dont feel safe about these cars at all, and I want other people to be aware of these issues.

Well, this can be still happened w/ a regular key. Most garages just tell me to leave the car running so that they don't have to waste time starting the car.
However, you should just activate the "Panic" button and let the car keeps beeping while he's driving...but I'm not sure how long it will keep beeping.
#13 of 28 Terrible Warranty

Just got my 2009 Murano LE back from shop - been there 6 times past year with a non functioning passenger side airbag - the last time was in shop for a week trying to diagnose problem. Warranty doesnt cover a replacement car while vehicle out of service - just $35 towards the rental of a vehicle - $35/day doesn't get you anything close to a Murano LE.

I have the Murano since Jan. 2009 and since then I have a noise when steering to the left (not necessary to the maximum) and soon after that the sound is more intense and noticed when steering to the right, as wel as is produces vibrations to the steering wheel. This problem is more intense when is cold (I live in Edmonton, Canada) and the sound is intense when started at cold. I have taken the car to the dealer here and they changed (???) the steering pump, but the noise was back and even more intense seconds I have started the engine in their parking lot. They told me to drive it for 500km and if the noise is still there to bring it back. I will plan to bring the car back, but I am affaraid that they do not know what are they doing there. I am affraid that there might be some safety issues. Please advise. Thank you. John
#15 of 28 2010 Murano buyer beware

The 2010 Murano does not come with passanger side lumbar support.
My dealer neglected to tell me that the use of a lumbar support pillow will disingage the front passenger airbag. This leaves anyone who needs passenger side lumbar support with one of three choices.
1- Seat in the front passenger seat without your lumbar support.
2- Seat in the front seat with lumbar support but with no airbag protection.
3- Seat in the back seat.
#16 of 28 NISSAN MURANO TRANSFER CASE
Feb 16, 2010 (8:55 am)
Please complete the form on the link below as it will prompt Transport Canada to do an investigation with Nissan Canada.
(copy and paste the link in your browser if you cannot click on the link)
Nissan is aware of the problem and has extended the warranty on the CVT transmission up to 200,000km or 10 years but still refuses to include the transfer case
For those of you who were not made aware of the extended warranty it was only decided the 1st week in February 2010 and letters will be sent out
If you are the second owner of the Murano you may need to contact Nissan Canada to inform them that you are the current owner so that they are able to forward the letter to you attention.
Hope this helps
As I myself is a frustrated 2004 Nissan Murano owner

Our 2004 Murano died today...they are claiming it is the transfer case and not the transmission and that they have to call corporate Monday to see if it is covered. Why do they refuse to cover the transfer case?

I just traded in my 2009 Murano for a 2010 Lexus RX350. I was tired of dealing with all the problems with my Murano and the terrible service. I will never buy a Nissan again.
