It has been reported that the popular SUV crossover, 2009 Nissan Murano has been raking in complaints about malfunctions in its brakes.

The 2009 Nissan Murano design was introduced as a second generation model. With the recent issue and federal probe, about 110,000 units of the said model will be investigated.
