Murano leaking head gasket

Asked by Bronwyn

I have been told that the head gasket on my 2009 Nissan Murano is leaking. It's only done 76,000 km and has been serviced every six months. I have heard it has happened to a few of these cars. Nissan has offered to cover 25 percent of the cost, which means I will still be out of pocket $2000. I thought you got a recall when they know about a problem with a car, but I am told because it is not life threatening it doesn't apply in this case. I am one very upset customer.

Recalls are mostly to fix problems that affect the safety of the car, not mechanical problems like a leaking head gasket. Nissan's offer is in line with industry practice. You could try and negotiate a better deal with the company, 25 percent is a measly amount, but you need to deal directly with Nissan.
