On a routine maintenance visit to Nissan of Elk Grove, Ca I was advised that the transfer case is leaking and the repair is $2499. The 2009 Nissan Murano has only 88K miles.
The resale value of the car on a trade in is only $10,000, which makes this repair 20% of the cars value. This is an absurd amount for the repair. My online research turned up blogs where Murano owners state this problem with their cars. The blog entries describe multiple transfer case repairs/replacements on the same car, related transmission failures while driving the car and a fire.
Why is this not covered in a TBS or a recall? Are they waiting for deaths like GM has to correct this faulty part?
I am beyond angry.
