2003 Nissan Murano SL AWD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl CVT)

Review

We bought our Murano less than a year ago at 58k miles. Was looking forward to owning a Murano since they came out in 2003 and prices finally came down to where we could afford one. Well much to our surprise at 65k miles the engine starts to run at 4000 rpm going down the highway one long trip and we literally feel the vehicle losing power and jumping forward. We end up turning around on the highway in the median then can't move at all. COMPLETELY LOST POWER WITH THE GAS PEDAL TO THE FLOOR!!! Thought we were going to be stranded on the highway! Turn engine off/on and it goes by golly. Took it back to dealer and found the transmission had to be replaced, metal in pan. CVT has issues.

Favorite Features

Navigation system and ride comfortability before the transmission started having issues.

Suggested Improvements

Nissan needs to definitely fix this transmission issue. CVT or not, transmissions should not be going out on a 4 or 5 year old vehicle even if its a crappy one. Dealer told us it will cost $5600 to fix it. This is no small repair.
