Nissan Calls Back Murano SUVs Over Flying Glass Panels

» Posted March 20, 2024Resources | Share This Post

Nissan is recalling certain Murano sport utility vehicles whose glass panels could unexpectedly fly off, posing a serious safety hazard.

Quarter glass could detach from the vehicles, the company recently told federal regulators. The wrong primer was used on the glass while attaching it during the manufacturing process, Ford said in a defect notice filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

“The customer may notice an increase in quarter glass wind noise and there may be a rattle noise heard prior to quarter glass separation,” Nissan said. “If the quarter glass separates while driving, it could become a road hazard for other vehicles, increasing the risk of a crash.

The recall covers certain 2024 Murano SUVs, which were produced in October 2023.

Nissan plans to notify owners of recalled vehicles via mail by the end of March. Owners can also check NHTSA’s website to see if their cars are covered by the recall.

Nissan will ask owners to bring their SUVs to authorized service providers for inspection and repair, including having glass panels replaced.

Nissan Safety Concerns

These kinds of moves have become far too routine for Nissan. They raise questions about whether the company’s cars are actually safe to hit the road.

Nissan said earlier this year, for instance, that it is recalling more than 20,000 Infiniti QX60 vehicles. It said a problem with the vehicles' Adaptive Front-Light Systems prompted the recall.

The company also recently said it is calling back some 236,000 cars, citing possible steering problems. The cars’ front suspension tie rods can bend and break, which could cause drivers to lose control of the steering wheel and crash, the company told federal regulators.

Know Your California Lemon Law Rights

Nissan is not alone. The world’s largest automakers call back millions of vehicles across the U.S. every year, citing serious defects that pose significant safety threats. The moves regularly come long after defective vehicles have left car lots, sold to unsuspecting buyers.

Fortunately, car owners in California have some important rights and protections under the state’s lemon law. 

The California lemon law requires automakers to perform a variety of repairs on vehicles while the cars are under warranty. It also forces those companies to buy back or replace cars that they cannot or simply refuse to properly fix.   

There is no specific number of repair requests or attempts that must happen before the buy back or replace requirement kicks in. That is one reason why it is important to consult an experienced lemon law attorney. The law requires manufacturers to pick up the tab for certain legal fees incurred by owners enforcing their rights.
