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

Review

Have had same issues as other reviews.Hesitation at stop to start has gone away with last recall to replace air tube and clamps. fuel door lock replaced twice, after 2nd time I just broke the lock shaft off and left it at that. I now have oil leaking from oil cooler seal, oil sump pan gasket, and main oil pan gasket. Entire engine has to be removed from bottom of vehicle to repair these items. Parts cost approx. $70.00, labor is $1350.00. Will be replacing wheel seals while the engine is out also since axles have to come out anyway, $40.00 for parts only. Luckily no cvt issues, knock on wood.

Favorite Features

Roomy interior for large drivers, heated leather power seats, steering wheel controls, sound system. We also own a '07 SE awd fully loaded(for the wife). Difference is night and day. '07 is a much smoother ride and quieter.

Suggested Improvements

We were surprised to get a letter from nissan extending the cvt warranty to 10 years/120,000 miles. Hopefully this helps people with their problems. Owners should stay up to date with recalls, especially mechanical issues.
