That's weird. Nearly every car I've owned has had a moonroof. I've never once had a leak.

The seal on our moonroof tore with normal usage. Why is the seal so delicate?

Here's another update on this car. The Murano is running well and we are getting decent mileage on the highway (25+ MPG), so I can't complain.

I found out that all of the 12V power outlet sockets in the Murano are defective. The fuse will blow if you plug in a cell phone charger into any of the outlets. Nissan has a TSB about this issue, and the outlet connectors must be replaced to fix this issue.

Here's the latest update on this vehicle:

The high pressure power steering line started to leak at 35,000 miles. This is a common defect on the Murano that Nissan has, so far, failed to address. The defective power steering line is not covered under any warranty, since it is considered a hose. Prepare to pay $450-$600 to get it fixed at the dealer. The dealer wanted $159 just for the parts, but I bought an aftermarket part on eBay for $50 (free express shipping). The new part worked great. Let me know if you want detailed instructions on how to replace the high pressure power steering line on a FWD Murano.

I was wondering if you could tell me where you got your high pressure hose for the FWD 2006 Murano? Thanks for any help. You can email it to me if possible at ae5nzglenn@dish.net.

Here's an update on this vehicle. After a trip to the local car wash, my wife was complaining that the adjustable gas pedal was too far forward and would not move back. It looks like one of the car wash attendants stripped the worm gear when moving the pedals forward to vacuum the car. I found out that you can buy a new adjustable pedal on eBay for ~$90(free shipping). It doesn't look too hard to replace. You have to take off a couple nuts, a wiring harness, and remove the flexible shaft to remove the old pedal. I was able to move the gas pedal back in position, but we decided not to replace the pedal since we never, ever adjust these pedals. Let me know if you need instructions on how to move the pedal back into position.

The part is called "Omega 55040 Power Steering Pressure Hose" and I bought it on Ebay from allautoparts365 for $49.95. It fits the 2006 FWD Murano. The hose is almost identical to the factory hose, except the outside diameter of the nut that connects to the rack and pinion is a little bit larger. The hose came with two new crush washers to connect the hose to the power steering pump.
