Nissan Murano leaking head gasket

Asked by David

After a recent 70,000 km service on my 2009 Nissan Murano I was informed that the head gasket needs replacing as coolant was leaking. It has only done 33,000 km, but because if is out of warranty by six months Nissan has said they will only come to the party for half. My research suggests this is a known problem worldwide with the 2009 Murano, which Nissan will not acknowledge. Should I cut my losses and accept their offer?

Leaking head gaskets are a problem on the Murano worldwide and Nissan's eagerness to offer you a deal is confirmation of it. The offer to cover half of the costs is a standard one in this sort of situation, but I reckon they should cough up for the whole cost. A leaking head gasket as such low km’s is unacceptable. The easiest course of action, though, would be to accept the offer and get on with your life.
