    Driver's seat shift backwards and forwards during hard acceleration or deceleration. Dealer says that they notice it but can't do anything except tighten the bolts, which doesn't make a difference. It seems to be a common problem, and it would be very distracting in a real emergency.

    The bolt holding the seat in place on the drives side broke leaving the seat able to shift a couple of degrees. There was no accident it just broke off as i breaked. It was not a hard break just standard stop and go. The result was that i leander forward a bit. As a driver of a moving vehicle this was not good

    2015-2019 NISSAN MURANOS HAVE AN ON-GOING ELECTRICAL HAZARD WITH THE CLIMATE CONTROLLED SEATS. THE ELECTRICAL HARNESS CONNECTOR DIRECTLY UNDER THE SEAT WILL FAIL AND ACTUALLY GET SO HOT IT WILL MELT THE PLASTIC PIECES! IN FACT, NISSAN HAS ISSUED IT'S OWN 15 PAGE SERVICE BULLETIN WARNING TO ITS DEALERS ON THE FIRE DANGER (EL18-035, REFERENCE NTB19-004, DATED 17 JANUARY 2019). THIS BULLETIN GRAPHICALLY SHOWS PICTURES OF HOW THE HARNESS CONNECTOR AND THE SEAT CONTROL UNIT WILL GET SO HOT THEY WILL MELT AND FAIL. IT ALSO DETAILS HOW LOCAL DEALERS SHOULD REPLACE THE DEFECTIVE CONNECTOR AND EVEN HOW THEY SHOULD CHARGE NISSAN BACK FOR THE REPAIR (PAGE 15 - PRIMARY PART LINE CLAIM). MY 2016 Nissan Murano SUFFERED THE SAME DRIVERS SEAT ELECTRICAL FAILURE RECENTLY. I VISUALLY VERIFIED THE DAMAGED (MELTED) CONNECTOR UNDER THE SEAT AND CONTACTED MY LOCAL NISSAN DEALER (YOUNGBLOOD NISSAN, SPRINGFIELD MO.). I PROVIDED THEM THE NISSAN ALERT INFORMATION. THE DEALER IS REFUSING TO FIX THE KNOWN FAILURE UNLESS THEY ARE PAID FOR THE SERVICE WORK (ESTIMATED IS OVER $300.00)! GIVEN THAT THIS FIRE HAZARD COVERS FOUR YEARS WORTH OF NISSAN MURANO PRODUCTION AND THE 2016-2019 TITANS, NISSAN SHOULD FIX THE DEFECTIVE PARTS FOR FREE. WHILE IN MY CASE THERE WAS NO ACTUAL FIRE OR DAMAGE BEYOND THE MELTED ELECTRICAL PARTS AND LOSS OF THE SEAT CLIMATE CONTROL FEATURE..I HAVE LEFT THE DEFECTIVE PLUG DISCONNECTED, STILL LEAVES ME VERY CONCERNED ABOUT THEY SAFETY OF MYSELF AND MY FAMILY. I HAVE ATTACHED IMAGES OF BOTH THE INTERNAL NISSAN SERVICE BULLETIN AND AN IMAGE OF MY MELTED AND DEFECTIVE ELECTRICAL PLUG. THANK YOU.
