problem #2

Mar 262008

Murano 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 39,279 miles
The track assembly in the driver's side power seat failed. When engaged the motor assembly would not move forward or backward but instead would cause the entire seat to swivel to the right. Prior the failure there was a grinding noise. Any attempt to shift the position of the seat while driving could have caused a serious problem.

problem #1

Apr 062008

Murano 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 64,000 miles
A bracket on the driver's side power seat has broken, and the seat tilts to one side and also forward. It is loose and will move forward several inches when I decelerate/accelerate or get in/out of the vehicle. This problem has occurred under normal use. The vehicle has not been in an accident nor anything other than ordinary driving on streets. The broken bracket appears to be very small for a weight-bearing piece. This piece would certainly not survive a crash. If still intact, the piece would certainly break during a crash. This could cause the driver's seat to move dangerously close to the steering wheel, allowing the driver to possibly impact the steering wheel or windshield. I have not repaired this yet, as I need to decide what route to take. Apparently the dealership charges about $1,000 to repair/replace the offending part, but they will replace it with the same fragile part. It appears that contacting a professional welder may be a better choice, as they can weld the pieces together and strengthen the pieces too.
