Lack of Nissan Murano Service in Gold Coast
I am a simple woman that using vehicle to drive to work and children. I bought Nissan Murano in 2006 from showroom brand new, The vehicle is beautiful of course CVT drama quite often spoil it, The reason that put me off the the Service department in my town. Over priced, charge anything they can even a pack of $1.50 for a sachet of liquid soap for washing my car after service, if the car is clean it's fine, which is not!, it's look like being hose with water and let dry on the site, leave water spot marks every where.
Every time I picked up my...
All the trimmings for 15k less than the badge!
I love this car. It is my third Nissan car (after a Maxima and an X-Trail and my favourite so far). Wonderful to drive, luxurious interior, powerful engine and all the trimmings of luxury cars. Love it and wouldn't change it for another. You get the full package without paying the price for overly expensive Japanese or European brands. Striking design, like nothing on the road. I paid 45K for an ex demo, when you look at 60K+ for the competitors. I take my hat off to Nissan for offering such a wonderful 4WD that sets you apart from the crowd.
Love love my Nissan Murano Ti
Bought our TI brand new at Xmas 2011, and just love it. Love the leather interior, panorama roof, electric boot, the stereo just pumps, love the quietness on the road, heaps of leg room, love the memory seats, stylish interior, and the look of the outside is up there with the Lexus.
Look, feel, drive, stylish, stereo, so roomy for your legs, great boot size.
Major fault with Murano Z51 Series 2 MY10 at 80,000kms
When my 2010 model Murano's went in for its 80,000 km service the dealer told my I had a leaking head gasket that would have to be replaced. The total cost of repairs exceeded $3000 Australian. Of course the car was outside it's new car warranty. I'm 60 years old, drive the car like a 60 year old and keep the vehicle in immaculate condition. I had the issue checked by another mechanic from another garage and they confirmed there was a problem. Thankfully I had paid for an extended warranty with an insurance company when I bought the car and the...repairs were completed at no cost to me. But seriously, a car of this value with a leaking head gasket at 80K? To make matters worse I previously owned a Nissan 350Z (2009). It's synchro mesh between 1st and 2nd gear failed around 40,000 kms. That car was still under warranty and the dealer replaced the gear box but i waited more than 6 weeks for the parts to come from Japan - no major parts of this nature were held forward in Australia. In summary, two new Nissans since 2009 both with significant mechanical failures. Would I buy another Nissan? No way.
Good SUV : Bad dealership and customer service
I purchased 2013 TI in September 2014 from Magic Nissan Mellvile Perth. Near new 11000 km one owner ex nissan Australia company car. The only issue I had was the SAT NAV didn't work the reason being the software had never been loaded. Long story short , dealer wanted me to spend an additional $400.00 to update the software to make it functional.Unexceptable, response from the dealership and after an exhauseable email exchange the dealership and Nissan Australia Paid 50%each.To put right what should have been sorted before the sale was finalised.
The suv other featuers work well, power boot , is handy, power front seat also an good idea.The engine has plenty of power, and is enconnomical .

Perfect car, i love the sound system. I have Murano Z51 2009 162800 on clock, major service done.
Drivers like new.
Only owned second hand Murano 06/07 for a few months - so far- air conditioning not working, electric windows stick, uses motor oil, and finally back diff buggered and front pirelli tyres $385 ea are delaminating. Apparently to do with auto 4wd sensor as tyres may not be correct size? Motor is strong though. Also rear shocks and brakes need replacing. Citrus fruit.
Best suv i have driven
Surprisingly smooth and road manners are great. Well equipped with features and excellent interior comfort.
Down side is cargo room.
Never buy a Murano
I have now owned my second Nissan Murano Z51 in Ti trim for a little over two years, purchased brand new. The first one had all sorts of little niggles and was traded for a 2012 Murano Ti. The car had rattles and all sorts of cabin noises from day one, some are still not fixed. The Bluetooth system was not working properly from very early on, but the dealer couldn't find the fault. It was finally replaced after nearly two years. Last week the CVT gear box stopped working properly, after 2 years 2 months and nearly 78,000km. It's a warranty clai...m, but it took Nissan Australia over a week to just deliver a gearbox to the dealer, who is less than 20 km from Nissan HQ. Nissan Australia is arrogant, has poor customer serivice and I will get rid of my car ASAP, as I don't want to pay for any costly repairs after the warranty expired. Sorry Nissan, not good enough and you lost a customer (not that you care anyway)
2006 murano with a lot of issues
Bought a 2006 murano with 110,000 km. Power steering fluid leaked and got it fixed. Now done 140,000km Oil cooler hose started to leak , crack in the alternator fan, crack in cv joints, the gas out of the boot lid needed replacing and a few other things needed to be fixed. Car looks great and sporty but no power in cvt engine.
4.5years old Nissan Murano. Bought 2years ago from a dealer. Driving along, it stops all acceleration. Towed to nissan. Told $8000 for a new transmission not including labour. Don't worry I have extended warranty! Nope, Not covered.
After researching CVTs in Murano's it seems that it's a huge problem & Nissan refused to recall them. Nissan USA have 10year replacement warranties on there CVTs as they recognised there was an issue, Nissan Australia do not!! Owing plenty still on the car & no money to fix!
Not happy at all will be taking this ...
Poor performance by Nissan
I bought a second hand Murano 07 it had 68,000ks Ive had it for a year now 106,000ks and the heat exchange failed costing me $3000.00 to repair, cant by the heat exchange new only second hand. A week later the gear box shat itself. Nissan said sorry cant help you except $8500.00 for new gearbox only option second hand gear box at $4500.00 so thank you Nissan for making components that are rubbish.
Comfy car to drive heavy on fuel
not durable considering they claim the engine to be unbreakable, it's a shame the transmission isn't
Picking up our new Murano ST next week which will be the fifth one over eight years. Have had two early model STs followed by two Ti models. Change them over before 60k and have not had a spot of trouble with any of them. Great deals on the ST meant that we couldn't justify the extra 11k for the few extras on the Ti model this time around. A pleasure to drive.
Safety features. Ride height. Design.
My best car... so far!
Having read the other reviews I felt compelled to share my views. I bought my 2nd Murano TI2 in May 2010 and have never been happier. I have not found fault with my Murano's. The eye-catching styling (which other manufacturers now seem to be following), the quality, engine, CVT, smoothness, quietness and a host of inclusions which are only optional on other vehicles makes the Murano absolute value for money. Also, for its size, the Murano is not excessively thirsty when it comes to fuel economy (in my view). I can't wait to see the new model Murano which I believe will be released in late 2014.
Eye-catching styling, quality, great engine and transmission (CVT), smoothness, quietness and a host of inclusions.
I have been a Murano owner since 2005 and have not had too many issues worth complaining about other than the driver seat collapsing two years ago , fortunately there were no consequences other than Nissan refusing to recognize it is a problem which I discovered is actually a problem . Other than that I have happy with the vehicle in fact I had made a decision to buy a new model in 2014. In the meantime and in preparation for the vehicles Bi annual NCT I spent 2000 euros on a major service and a few new parts, this I thought would see me throu...gh until next year. Three days ago I heard a strange whining noise come from the engine when I began to drive , I brought the car to my Nissan dealer the following day, I have just been informed the CVT is in trouble and as there are no parts available only a complete new unit has to be fitted which will cost 8500 euros, to say I am stunned is an understatement. I am searching around at present to see if I can get an Auto transmission specialist repair it, failing this goodness knows,? for one sure thing I wont be buying a new Murano in 2014. .
Never, ever buy a Nissan
We purchased a brand new Nissan Murano Ti in 2009, and have just had to pay $9000 in repair fees for engine parts that have worn out. As we were 3 weeks out of warranty, Nissan refused to assist in any way, leaving us with a massive bill to pay and a dodgy car.
Nissan provide extremely poor customer service, and have a complete lack of accountability for faulty products
nissan murano ti registerd2010
i am a new zealander,have owned the car from new,2nd murano that i have owned,lovely car, but very bad road noise.is it the tyres that i have on it? they are hankook ventus st 225/65/r18.i am debating as to wether i will by another.the previous murano that i owned was very road noisey, i was told that this one would be quieter, i dont think so.
My 3rd Murano!!
I have just taken delivery of my 3rd murano. I have to say that I am a true advocate of this car. I have been very happy with my 2 previous vehicles also. I replace so frequently as I do around 50,000km per year. The murano just eats up the highway & is a very comfortable and capable vehicle.
Comfort, Handling, Styling
I bought this car two weeks ago and as an automotive engineer who works more than 10 years in car industries, I need to say: this car is amazing!
A 3.5 V6 260 hp engine enables your car to reach 100 km in less than 8 seconds. Lovely sporty feeling of handling is strange for such a big SUV and sometimes you forget this is an 1800 kg big SUV. I am not a big fan of CVT transmission but this car is an exception. High quality trim is really impressive. I have ST with leather seats, 11 speakers Bose audio and back camera. If you pay 10000 more you w...
Bought a new Ti in 1010 September. It's a very comfortable and well equipped interior, and a unique external style that make it look and feel agile.
The 3.5 V6 is very quiet and the transmission is smooth, though I do hope for better fuel economy, which I am getting 13l/100km around town.
Great interior and ride
Hope for better fuel economy
Questions & Answers
My battery has died on my vehicle. The vehicle has been standing for sometime without being driven. We tried opening the car door manually with a key but it does not want to open. Is there any other way that the door can be opened so that we can jump start the battery
I am looking at buying a 2010 Murano with 119,000 on the clock very clean and has all the bells and whistles on it , he wants 12,500 , is that a fair price and also I've read a few problems with the CVT transmission ,any advice ?
Hi Mark, mine is a 2013 Ti (facelifted model) and I paid $12,500 from a reputable dealer (granted, it had 130k on it). I think $12,500 is a bit steep, for a 2010 I'd be paying around $10,500. For the money, you can't really beat a Murano. I know everyone loves hybrids these days but it's still nice to have a big stonking 3.5L V6. So many opinions about the CVT.. I've never had an issue with mine but I have a friend who has an X-Trail and has done close to 200,000kms and he's getting concerned. I've heard that CVTs don't like towing so maybe check if it's done some hard work or just been the standard around town SUV.
Hi Mark. I think 12,500 is a bit steep but that is pretty low kms for the age of the car. Definitely try to get them down a bit. CVT transmissions are definitely less reliable than a regular automatic or a manual, but the 2010 Murano has the X-Tronic CVT which is known as one of the best CVTs out there. Ideally you’ll want a car that hasn’t been off-roading and hasn’t been used for towing much.
When you go to test drive it make sure the gear shifts (between D, P, and R) are smooth, for example when you put it into drive you don’t feel any clunking. Also ensure that when you’re driving and you step off the gas (but don’t apply the break) you don’t feel the car pull back at all. Both can be a sign of a wearing transmission.
Overall the Murano will definitely be a bit pricier than many other SUVs because they were so ahead as far as design and technology, but I would definitely try and see if you can negotiate a bit. I think $10k-$11k would be a more fair price.
Hi all, Im looking at buying a 2010 Nissan Murano Ti. I'm getting mixed opinions from car salesmen. Are they expensive to run? Common CVT issues? I'm just after some advise.
Thanks in advance.
The Muranos have one of the best CVTs out there, but CVTs in general are less reliable than a standard auto.
Can be expensive to run but as expected from a 3.5l V6 4WD
Hi Belinda, mine is a 2013 but I love it. I have also heard mixed reviews about the CVT but have never had any issues, I think it would really be dependant on KMS though. Mine has a 135000kms on the clock (im in Australia) but I plan to sell it before 170,000 as that's when I've heard issues with the gearbox can arise. Can be thirsty on the petrol but depends how hard you drive it.. they have pretty decent acceleration for a big car. They are super affordable second hand and for the money I think they are a great buy but depends on the KMS.
