I have a 2003 Murano
140,000 miles I have replaced my transfer case three years ago called Nissan for help and got no where with them I had to pay out of pocket $3ooo.
Two months after that I have to replace the catalitc converter another big job.
Now a month ago I had to replace the gas pump again another big expensive job.
But my real problem is my transmission the problem started last summer where after driving the car for about 20 to 30 min and then get into traffic the car starts to hesitate when pressing on the gas I took the car to the dealer w/ no help they told me I had to bring the car when it was happening and this problem doesn't happen all the time. So finally I take it aga

These Nissans in many respects are Renaults in disguise.
Renault has consistently produced unreliable cars for decades and now that they own Nissan, many of Nissans products are suffering.
The Nissan Murano looks nice, and has nice features, but it is a reliability disaster as with every other "Renault".
They are not designed to last, but instead designed to be "profitable" to the company.
I'd reccomended not buying and going for a more reliable brand.
