I took my 2007 Murano in for an oil change and mentioned the defective driver's side sun visor. It also won't stay up.

My car has only 40,000 miles on it. The quote I was given was $475.00. Outrageous!!! The visor is of poor quality to begin with and the vanity lighting is even pathetic.

What the ***? This is a serious turn off and I will shop elsewhere next time I buy a new car.

I purchased this car when it was new and have had all the maintenance done at the Nissan dealership. What a way to treat a loyal customer.

It only gets worse.....I have a 2007 Murano......have put in close to $3000 in repairs. And yes, the visor falls down on the passenger side as well. Unacceptable and will never buy Nissan again.

I have a 2007 Murano I'm very disappointed in the sun visor the service department price for new is absolutely rude!!! I have drive with one hand on the wheel and one on the visor to keep it out of the way. I can't belive all the technology today and they can't figure out how to solve this problem.

I have a 2004 Murano. I love this vehicle but have had to deal with the flop down visors as well!

Going on 4 years now. I researched the problem a few years ago, but never moved on the problem. I ended up wrapping a small bungy chord around each visor then hooking the end to the sun roof opening.

Works well, just looks horrible. Done with Nissan...

I wrote a letter to Nissan Murano's CEO, Mr. Carlos Ghosn, regarding the problem with my 2006 Murano's sun visors not staying in place and arbitrarily falling down into the line of vision of the driver and passenger.

I pointed out that this could be a liability for Nissan, for someone can have an accident if the visor blocks their vision while driving. They didn't seem to care. Instead of the CEO calling me back, they appointed someone else to call me who only offered to find a dealer near me to replace the visors for a hefty $400 dollars!

WHAT?

Regardless of warranty or not, this is a matter that Nissan should address on a recall. Believe me, they will pay much more if these sun visors cause someone's death.

I will not buy or recommend anyone to buy a Nissan vehicle ever!

I am having the same problem but I think that a lot of people are being ridiculously harsh on Nissan. Yes, the visor does not work.

Yes they won't fix it for free. Yes, it sucks. But seriously? The whole thing is a complete piece of junk?

Filing a complaint with the Dept of Transportation? That's just silly. What a bunch of whiners. Just find a link for how to fix it and get on with life.

I still love my Murano. I have 65k miles on mine and it's a great car even though the visor flops down.

I am going to follow the hints online on how to fix it. Good heavens.

I have a 2005 Nissan Murano that was bought brand new, I have replace the drivers side sun visor once and lasted for a while and now it won't stay up, I will not replace it again too expensive. Very disapointed with Nissan Murano, I believe its a defective issue from Nissan. They should replace them free of charge.

Try working on them evedyday. The "engineers" that plan out the build on these cars must have thrown a dart at a board to decide their career path.

There is NO WAY they have actually done any automotive repair by looking at the way they put these things together. Sometimes i wonder if tbey do it to intentionally *** of the tech who h as to work on it. They concentrate too much on looks (maybe) and fuel mileage (well then theres the Titan) and not build quality or product longevity. We joke and say all the new cars with 4 cyl engines comes with a factory installed engine knock but they really kind of do...go listen especially Sentra, Versa sometimes Altima.

Oh yeah and hows that. CVT transmission working out for ya. We put two or three in a week.

They are way more reliable that the regular trans they had previously. OK LOL JUNK

I called consumer affairs for my 2004 murano drives side visor. A quick fix is to wrap it with a rubberband and a paper clip connect it to the roof liner keeps from falling.

Has anyone had problems checking the oil and getting a proper reading. this truck drive great but problems are diffucult and expensive to fix.

Wheel bearings are very expensive on these trucks. but call consumer affairs and voice your opinion

I'm having the same problem with the visor on the driver's side of my 2007 Murano. Mossy Nissan in Poway quoted me about $200 to fix it which I think is ridiculous but not as bad as $475.

Sounds like a recall issue to me! Does anyone know where you can buy the part?

2005 Nissan Murano got it brand new from the dealer now has only 35XXX miles on it. Driver’s side keeps falling down when it takes light bumps or when reacting to light road imperfections.

This is a true Hazard!!! After reading several posts it seems that Nissan should by now have some sort of recall or fix campaign.

Or at least send notice to make unsuspected drivers aware of possible hidden dangers related to their failing parts. :(

I have a 2007 Murano and had the car about 6 months and the visor kept falling down, I took it in and they stated that I would need to pay for a new one, I said I was not paying and they would give me a new visor, I got my way, but now the inside by the drivers window, I do not know what it is called but is fabric covered is falling off.

I have the LEMON !!!!!!!!!!!!

I have a 2004 Murano with the same problem of visor falling down randomly. Reported problem to Nissan,emphasizing what a hazard this is and very dangerous.

Tried to get them to pay for replacement, but after a week they have decided to only give a certain dollar amount credit which is not enough to pay for the defective piece. My dealer is the best though, and they are gonna do it for whatever Nissan will give them and not charge me. Nissan Customer Advocates are a joke though. Very slow, and rude, with no sense of that they wanted to take care of the problem.

I guess not enough people have died yet, unfortunate. I was considering buying a new Nissan now that mine is getting some age on it, but will now reconsider knowing that the corporate tier has no desire to take care of you long-term.
