2017 AWD Murano Vibration at 1000 RPM

I am on my 8th new Murano and am very disappointed in the 2017 model for several reasons. We still enjoy driving our 2nd Murano which is a 2013 which runs perfectly.

From day one March 2017 when new, to today March 2018 (24,000 miles) there has been a low frequency vibration at 35 to 45 MPH when RPMs are around 1000. Very, very annoying. No noise at highway speed and higher RPM.

Once I had driven the new 2017 for a few miles I returned to the dealer and test drove another model 2017. It was exactly the same. So I never chased a fix through the service department. Would just get more frustrated.

Temperature has no effect on the vibration 35 to 45 MPH and 1000 RPM it is there 100% of the time. Ugh!

I am convinced this is a design issue where gearing was changed to reduce RPM in attempt to increase gas mileage.

At 40 MPH moving gear sifter from automatic to manual mode causes RPM to increase slightly and vibration to disappear.

I would love to see Nissan issue a software change to fix this issue. Or perhaps strengthen the vehicle structure to fix this harmonic vibration. If not fixed I will likely switch brands when I purchase a new SUV next spring.

I've experienced the same "rumbling" at the same speed you indicated.

I use 87 Octane and maybe a higher one would eliminate the problem. Fortunately I do not drive at that speed all that much and as you said there is no noise at higher and lower speeds

Yours is not unique. I have the same in the 2015 year and essentially the same model. I too have found going to manual changes things but I would have to agree that a higher octane would most likely solve the problem. I too do not drive at the speed a lot so not that big of an issue..... but it is annoying.
