07/13/15 Nissan north america, inc. (nissan) is recalling certain model year 2015 murano vehicles manufactured december 4, 2014, to march 17, 2015. these vehicles are equipped with anti-lock braking system (abs) actuators which may have contamination in the solenoid valves, potentially affecting the valves' ability to completely close and allow a build up of hydraulic brake pressure, or fully open and allow the hydraulic brake pressure to completely drop.

Under some driving conditions, when the abs is activated, the malfunctioning abs actuator could cause a loss of vehicle stability, increasing the risk of a crash.

Nissan will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and replace the abs actuator, as necessary, free of charge. the recall began on august 13, 2015. owners may contact nissan customer service at 1-800-647-7261.

02/15/12 Nissan is recalling certain model year 2012 murano and rogue vehicles, manufactured from november 23, 2011 through january 11, 2012. during assembly, the tire pressure monitoring system (tpms) was not activated. thus, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of federal motor vehicle safety standard no. 138,?tire pressure monitoring system.?

A non-active tpms cannot warn a driver that a tire is underinflated. underinflated tires can result in tire overloading and overheating, which could lead to a blowout and possible crash.

All of the affected vehicles are still in dealer inventory. dealers have been instructed to activate all of the tire pressure monitoring systems.

Customers may contact the national highway traffic safety administration's vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (tty: 1-800-424-9153); or go to http://www.safercar.gov.
11/09/09 Nissan is recalling certain model year 2008-2010 vehicles originally sold in or currently registered in the states of connecticut, delaware, iowa, illinois, indiana, massachusetts, maine, maryland, michigan, minnesota, missouri, new hampshire, new jersey, new york, ohio, pennsylvania, rhode island, vermont, washington d.c., west virginia and wisconsin. the material in the nut used to secure the sensor-transmitter of the tire pressure monitoring system (tpms) may corrode and potentially crack in areas with heavy concentrations of road salt. if this occurs, the nut may come out of the sensor-transmitter and the tpms lamp will illuminate.

If the tpms lamp is disregarded and the vehicle continues to be driven in this condition, the tire will quickly lose air pressure at a consistent rate resulting in a flat tire increasing the risk of a crash.

The dealer will replace the tpms nut with a new, more robust nut. this service will be performed free of charge. the recall is expected to begin on or before november 9, 2009. owners may contact nissan at 1-800-647-7261 and infiniti at 1-800-662-6200.

03/20/06 On certain sport utility vehicles, a fitting for vapor recirculation, which is welded on the fuel tank, may come off the fuel tank because incorrect material was used.

This could result in the malfunction indicator light in the instrument panel coming on and may result in some fuel leakage. fuel leakage, in the presence of an ignition source, could result in a fire.

Dealers will replace the fuel tank with a new one free of charge. the recall began on march 20, 2006. owners may contact nissan at 1-800-647-7261.

03/20/06 On certain sport utility vehicles, due to the location of the forward edge of the fuel tank, in the event that a vehicle front tire runs over a small, sharp object in the road, catches it and propels it towards the rear of the vehicle, it may strike and puncture the fuel tank.

A punctured tank could increase the risk of a fire.

Dealers will install protectors in front of the tank free of charge. the recall began on march 20, 2006. owners may contact nissan at 1-800-647-7261.

Customers may also contact the national highway traffic safety administration's vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (tty 1-800-424-9153), or go to http://www.safercar.gov.
08/01/05 On certain sport utility vehicles, there is a possibility that a wire breaking inside the alternator could stop the battery from charging.

If this happens, the charger warning and brake warning lamps will immediately come on and the battery will begin to discharge. after a short time, the engine will go into a "fall safe" condition which will limit vehicle speed. the engine will stop running which could result in a crash.

Dealers will inspect and replace the alternator with a new version which has been modified to prevent movement of the coil. the recall began on august 1, 2005. owners may contact nissan at 1-800-647-7261.

04/15/03 On certain sport utility vehicles, the nut that attaches the transmission gear selector shaft to the control valve lever in the transmission may not be adequately tightened. this could result in the transmission not actually being in the gear indicated by the gear selector lever. in addition, the transmission position display in the instrument panel may not be on or may be incorrect.

If the gear displayed is different from the gear engaged, this could result in unexpected vehicle movement and a crash.

Dealers will check the affected nut in the transmission shift lever linkage, and tighten it if necessary. owner notification began april 15, 2003. owners who take their vehicles to an authorized dealer on an agreed upon service date and do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact nissan at 1-800-647-7261.

08/24/09 Engine Nissan is recalling 362,891 my 2003-2007 murano vehicles. the intake air ducts, which are connected to the intermediate resonator in the air intake system of the engine, may separate from the resonator with engine movement. this separation occurs due to the premature aging of the material used in the intake air ducts which causes excessive shrinking.

Engine may stall increasing the risk of a crash.

Dealers will inspect and replace/repair the appropriate components free of charge. the recall began on september 24, 2009. owners may contact nissan at 1-800-647-7261.

12/22/03 Engine On certain passenger vehicles, the circuit board for the crank position sensor or cam position sensor may have an improper solder joint due to solder deformation caused by heat stress accelerated by the existence of flux residue during the soldering process.

This could cause the "service engine soon" warning light to come on, create a no start condition, cause reduced engine power, or cause the engine to stop running without warning during vehicle operation, which could result in a crash.

Dealers will replace the crank position sensors. camshaft position sensor(s), and in some cases, the variable timing control sensor(s). vehicles involved in a previous recall campaign, 01v357, are also included in this new campaign. the replacement sensors used in that campaign are also affected. owner notification began on december 22, 2003. owners should contact nissan at 1-800-647-7261 or infiniti at 1-800-662-6200.

Nissan Murano Recalls

Some things are often misunderstood about recalls and technical service bulletins (TSBs). Plus a disclaimer.

  1. Recalls do not have to be issued only because something is prone to failure. NHTSA (a government agency) can only require a recall if a failure will affect safety, emissions, fuel economy, or compliance with some other regulation or law. Manufacturers can voluntarily recall cars for problems that do not affect these, though.
  2. Recalls often apply to only some cars of a specific model year, rather than all of them. You should receive a letter from the manufacturer if your car has been recalled. You can also check with the dealer, which will know which (if any) recalls pertain to your car.
  3. The primary purpose of TSBs is to inform dealers about known problems with a car and how to fix them. They are not the same as recalls. As with recalls, TSBs often only apply to some cars, not the entire model year.
  4. Dealers often will not provide a preventive repair just because a problem described in a TSB might happen to your car. They'll usually want to observe symptoms that the problem is already affecting your car.
  5. Even if there are symptoms, a manufacturer doesn't have to pick up the cost of a TSB repair if the car is out of warranty, though sometimes they do.

We provide the text of recalls and TSBs as provided by NHTSA. There can be errors in the text. If you sign up for notifications in My Garage, we will try to get these to do, but for various reasons (some beyond our control) cannot guarantee you will receive them. When in doubt about a recall or TSB, contact the dealer.
