Lottsa easy goin folks back then.
If Nissan will refund about 10 to 15 thousand dollars I will be easy going and forgiving too.
That would put the Murano in Hyundai land and one could not complain if their cheap little Hyundai had sqeaky brakes could they?
Oh they could? You mean just because other cheap cars have disc brakes that don't squeal? And BTW Hyundai brakes don't squeal either...............
I thought everybody was making a bit much of this until it started on my Brakes.
I thought it was probably a fairly restrained "Eeek"
but it is not.
It is more like EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEKKKKKKKK!
Quite long and quite loud. Very high pitched.
Some of it is caused by the fact that I don't jam the brakes, therefore I am gradually applying the brakes for 2-3 seconds. So the SQUEAL is 2-3 seconds.
And Bert, my neighbor across the street, looked up when it happened.
And told me later that I should have kept my old car.
And he has a point.
Nissan doesn't know how to build brakes that don't squeal?
There are several car companys that could teach them.
The dealer will fix this this or Nissan will sure as hell get some bad press around here.
If It was a "one off" I wouldn't be bothered so much. I would assume it was a temporary condition. But over at FA, many people have it.
So it is not a "one off" of brakedust, humidity in Florida, etc.
But why not all?
NO ONE has broken their brakes in more carefully than me.
And so I wonder if that has something to do with it?
In any event, the dealer will be given his chance.
This will be the first new car to be returned in warranty to the dealer, for any reason, in the last 3 cars.
Sure hope they can fix it.
