Caused multiple instances of nearly crashing into cars in front of me or not making it through intersections. At the time off this incident my entire family was in the car with me. Apparently the 2003 Murano is experiencing this problem. Should have kept the minivan! I feel Nissan needs to research this closer. I found the transmission on the internet at only one place and had to send it there and have it rebuilt. When I was at an intersection my car did this and threw me into oncoming traffic.
This is not good enough. The motor continued to run and the contact managed to pull the vehicle over to the side of the road. Notified that cvt fluid leaking onto outside of transfer case. After the car warms up, the power in the 35-50mph range is low. I purchased a new 2003 murano from Girard Nissan, Groton Ct. Other than that, we have only gotten 20.
That's why I was trying to find more 03 Muranos with this problem. All I get from Nissan are idiots that have no common sense on the phone. It is like the car is being thrown into 1st gear. I am surprised that Nissan would not stand behind a product that they endorse. The manufacturer advised that they were unable to provide any assistance. I have just under 70,000 miles on it and all of a sudden i need a new transmission? The first time the car stoped in the middle of the highway and it would not accelerate.
The car will stall for no apparent reason. I had the car checked and the transfer case was out of oil. As always, the car maker continues to. Then the slow acceleration got even worse. I have been doing research and found out that there was a extension on the warranty that I did not know about and was never told by Nissan.
The car simply would not go when the accelerator was pressed. At this time I am looking at a 6,000 repair bill, and no answer from Nissan to take responsibility of this problem. The cost for this this transmission replacement is more than the Bluebook value of my car, but I do not want to start payments on a new car, but after reading all the posts o0n this site, I am heavily leaning towards purchasing a new 'non Nissan product. So finally I take it again and they tell me I need a new transmission. The bad thing is that I really liked the car but the cost and reliability is terrible to say the least. MuranomaeI have seen this several times.
. This is a very dangerous situation and Nissan needs to step up to the plate and replace these faulty dangerous parts free of charge to the customer! The side of my drivers seat has split open in so many places, and the paint on my 'leather wrapped' steering wheel has chipped away. No codes were thrown and no lights on the dash again. Needless to say I'm now out of warranty. I had it check and told I needed to have the cvt replaced. I hope this bit of information helps a little.
No one seems to know anything about the differential transmission!! That's why I was trying to find more 03 Muranos with this problem. Please call for customer service and availability at 1-800-858-7269. They did say it should last longer than it did. First few times this happend, re-setting or turning off and on the car supported in it running fine. Once at 40k out of warrenty and again at 65k.
The engine sounds like the car should be in a lower gear at 30 - 50 mph. The problem is, I'm usually in traffic when I do this, and the problem resumes about 5-10 minutes later. If the surfaces are not 110% clean, then oil will leak. I then took it to another mechanic that wasn't a dealer and he showed me a technical bulletin about slow acceleration. Now I have to look for a transmission but I'll probably have the same problem eventually. MuranomaeI have seen this several times. This is too dangerous to be ignored.
