Nissan Murano

The Nissan Murano was a midsize family SUV that was sold in Australia between 2005 and 2015.

All Muranos, equipped with either the four-cylinder petrol engine or bigger V6, were sold with a continuously-variable transmission.

The Murano’s larger 3.5-litre V6 was also shared with various Nissan, Infiniti, and Renault models, such as the Nissan Altima and Pathfinder, Infiniti QX70, and Renault Latitude.

Priced from $16,600 for the Murano ST to the $28,490 Murano Ti, the Nissan Murano rivalled the Volkswagen Tiguan, Nissan X-Trail, Toyota RAV4, and Subaru Forester.

 

Nissan Murano Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Nissan Murano here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Nissan Murano 2010: Possible transmission problems

    I can’t say for sure what has gone wrong with the car, a mechanic would need to assess it firsthand to be able to tell you that. But the transmission is a CVT, which can be troublesome, but it might be as simple as changing the oil, or it might be that it needs to be replaced.

    I wouldn’t be buying a Murano that’s done a lot of kilometres without having the transmission assessed by an expert mechanic.

  • Nissan Murano: What's a good replacement car?

    Electric vehicles will be more mainstream in 2-3 years time, but they won’t be anything like mainstream in that time. Getting the purchase price down is the key to electric vehicles becoming more popular. In your timeframe I would be still be thinking about a small petrol-engined vehicle, with a view to going electric the next time you change cars.

  • I think my mechanic broke my car

    If the crack happened recently it should look fresh, so inspect it visually in the presence of the dealership people.

    It’s hard to prove conclusively that it happened while it was at the dealership, but the fact that it is now leaking profusely suggests that it wasn’t cracked before you took it in, or at least it wasn’t cracked as badly as it is now.

    Try and reach an agreement with the dealership.

  • Murano CVT failure

    CVT failures are quite common in the Murano, so you're not on your own in that respect.

    You should contact Nissan directly in writing setting out your reasons you think the company should help pay the costs of repairs on your car.

    CVT failures in the Murano are quite common and Nissan should be doing more to support owners here who have put their faith in the company only to be let down. You are correct in saying that a component such as a transmission should not fail to the extent it needs replacing at such low kilometres.

    If Nissan rejects your claim go to the consumer affairs people, or you could try taking them to VCAT.
