the only problem i ever had last time was the door lock wouldn't lock itself(spoilt), ended up with a professional accesories shop modifying the thing with another mechanism and its okay again :)

Ic, where do you send your car for normal servicing? Is the parts easily obtain? Is it expensive to maintaining the car?.....

What model is your ride? 2.5L too??...

d 2.5L Murano is running d same engine as d 2.5L X-Trail...so,maintenance is almost d same....any competent workshop w a proper diagnostic tools will b able 2 handle dis car..n since it's a 2WD,it's actually cheaper 2 maintain compared 2 a X-Trail....i'm driving a 2005 CBU model n so far,d problems i've encountered is same like davidhoryk,i oredered d lock mechanism thru a spare part shop,can't remember how much but definitely ALOT cheaper thn getting it frm Tan Chong & also my crank position sensor KO-ed,car can't start....took 1 frm a used 2L Serena engine(it's d same sensor)...settle....RM50 fren2 price frm my trusted mechanic....but in Kuantan lar!hahahahhahah
overall,it's a good car.....FC so MUCH better compared 2 my previous 2003 2.0L CR-V....

I also heard that 2.5L Murano is sharing the same engine as the X-trail, however i think i might
have a bit more problem than u guys, I have power door lock issue, engine starting issue, over
heating issue and side mirror issue...feel so depress...but i still like the design...but i just cant find the right workshop to fix it...anywhere else besides kuantan???

My mistake as I was thinking of the 3.5 which uses the VQ series.

The 2.5 does employ the QR engine series.

If you require new genuine Nissan parts, do drop me a PM along with the 10 digit alphanumeric part no.

seanyeo82,
read my post again,i belive ur problems r similiar 2 mine.
1)door lock issue-it's d lock mechanism.whn u arm ur alarm,d door just won lock,right?der's no 2 ways abt it.n i dun think any shop can actually fix or modify d mechanism.u can try,no harm,but i've seen d internals.usually once KO,sumthg pecah inside.

2)starting issue-u'll suffer frm sudden engine shut down,thn hard 2 start up...n sumtimes just plain hard 2 start,right?it's probably d crank sensor.der's 2,top & bottom.get a used unit frm a C24 Serena or X-Trail(2L/2.5L,they r d same).

3)Overheating problem-check ur radiator,most prolly d top plastic portion cracked.i suffered frm dis @ 80,000km.

4)side mirror problem-so far,i din encounter dis.wat's wrong w urs?d mirrors won move or it wont fold?

akuma,
1) so for the door lock meaning i have live with it...ok then
2)for engine start i will try to check with the crank sensor, and in addition there was white smoke from my exhaust recently, so i'm not sure wat's wrong with it now.
3) as for over heating i have already change the top plastic cover, however i suspect there is a blockage but not sure where is it, try checking the hose..but found nothing in it.
4) for side mirror the auto folding is not working...can't fold... any ideas?
Thank you

1)not saying u'll hafta live w it lar.replace d lock mechanism lor?or u can try c ads in Motortrader,those shops dat specialises in fixing locks & sliding doors(usually Toyota lar) n ask if they can fix/modify d Murano's unit?good luck

2)white smoke ar?all d time or early morning only?if u ask me,d Murano's engine is a pretty simple unit.any competent workshop shud b able 2 diagnose it.i got a few mechanic frens in Sri Muda,Shah Alam.but they mainly specialise in high performance cars(VTECs,Turbos,etc)..not sure if he's keen 2 take in a Murano,hehehehhee.....

3)whr did u replace d radiator's top cover?a good radiator shop will clean d radiator n do a proper leak test n of course monitor d hoses after installation.seems like d shop u went to did not do a very complete job OR ur previous overheating issue oredy spoilt sumthg in ur engine(warped head/block?)

4)side mirror i can't help u.so far mine no problem so i never bothered 2 take 'em out n dissect 'em(hahahahahah)......go jln2 chop shop ler..so many Murano 1/2cuts lately..i'm pretty sure sum1 brought in d doors too..or u can simply drop by any of d acc shops u checked out 2 solve ur problem no.1) n ask them if they can fix it too?

cheers n good luck

Hi All murano owners... can share the maintenance of the car?
like normal maintenance how much...
FC how much since it was mentioned that better than CRV...

please share as much details as i'm waiting to sell my bmw and get a SUV and the murano looks very sweet and found a few second hand ones at about 100 to 120k...

The maintenance should pretty much be the same as an X-Trail since both engines are identical.

As for body parts, the car has been around long enough to visit chop shops for them.

Do you mean the rear door absorber which functions to push the rear door up?

Those are a quick fix, I got mine at Jln Ipoh for a couple of hundred bucks

midship,
Not that one, i mean the door lock remote (door lock actuator) rear right side.
What is your shop name in jln ipoh. Can you give me address and phone number.
Tq.
