vin:

I see that 2003 MO were all made in Japan.
That the reason why I bought 2003 instead of 2004; brand new.
Japan quality control is excellent, no doubt.

I checked my bin # and ask my salesman to make sure ...it start from J (japan).

Wondering why there are quality problems from Nissan US, Japan send out 20 engineer to fix the bug to US recently. I heard more problems on 2004 MO than 2003 MO, if that the reason.

But, of course some people dont think so.

I thought the 04 murano IS still build in Japan?

Only titan build in tenassee's plant.
Murano is build in japan, both 03 and 04.
Correct me if i am wrong.

"Japan quality control is excellent, no doubt."


Either Japan has started to slip or they never were that good to begin with.
Most of my troubles with the Murano are directly traceable to workmanship.

Now that they have all been fixed (knock on plastic), the car has been very good.
I hold my breath tho, waiting for the alternator to fail. (Another indication of superior Japanese quality?)

Quality

I read an article that part of the Quality issues with the Nissans made in the USA is that the workers "BLING BLING" is scratching and nicking the paint. Now the workers have to leave the jewelry at home.

Hmm...overall appeal NO DATA vs 5.

That isn't exactly a complete picture.

Also, in the fine print this was written

"Ratings for the 2004 vehicles may be different, and will be released in October."
