How do I hate thee, let me count the ways.
By 6twentysix on
2004 Nissan Murano SL Fwd 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl CVT)
I was super excited about this pre-owned car, I bought it around 50K and I bought the extended warranty.
HOLY CRAP, I'm glad I did. Here is a list of things that were fixed.
Catastrophic Failures (covered by Warranty)
Drive box - wouldn't go in reverse (Out 2 weeks)
Transmission was rebuilt when the chain kept leaking which I guess is a common problem. (Out 1 week)
Minor but extremely annoying:
Door Actuator on the Drivers handle
Windshield Wipers (twice fixed)
CV Joint passenger side
Struts after only 60K
And a bunch of other crap I can't remember... Nissan fixed things, but as soon as the warranty ended, I sold this bad car. Now it's another Nissan dealerships problem.
Comfortable ride, power, speed and luxury. Too bad the reliability didn't match these things, this went from my favorite car to least favorite.
MPG is a good place to start, after that, try making a better transmission so people don't end up with 3600 dollar repairs on a 40000 car (new) only 70K into the ownership....
