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.Show more
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.

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.Show more
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.Show more
