I've owned my 2009 SL AWD Murano for about a month now and feel that it has this annoyling bouncy quality to the ride. It's less noticeable at freeway speeds but still present. I've put 1400 miles on it. While it wasn't clear to me on the short test drive I took at the dealer (I had driven several examples and didn't take an extensive drive on the day of purchase), while driving it home I first noticed that even small uneven features in the pavement cause a bouncy sort of jolt to travel through the vehicle. After I purchased a new vehicle I thought my days of test driving were over, but have since driving 3 other new Muranos and feel that their ride quality is significantly better. I took it in for service and the Service advisor and technician said they drove it and didn't notice any problems. Other than put it up on the rack and make sure there was no fluid leak from the shocks and that all the weights were in place on the tires and that there was no uneven wear or worn patches, they didn't do much with it. Anyway, it seems as if I am riding on a bumpy road at all times. Others have described similar kinds of sensations, but in my searching haven't found that anyone has identified a resolution.http://townhall-talk.edmunds.com/direct/view/.f16e370/326
Anyone experience something similar? It's very frustrating to have an expensive new vehicle be such a point of stress.
Any ideas as to what I should have the dealer check? They said they are reluctant to go replacing things when nothing is clearly wrong. Time to ask for new tires or....? Any ideas would be very helpful. Thanks!
