Nissan Murano: Driving the vehicle / Manual shift mode

Nissan Murano 2015-2022 Owners Manual / Starting and driving / Driving the vehicle / Manual shift mode

Nissan Murano. Manual shift mode

When the shift lever is in the manual shift gate, the transmission is ready for the manual shift mode. Shift ranges can be selected manually by moving the shift lever up or down. To cancel manual shift mode, return the shift lever to the D (Drive) position. The transmission returns to automatic driving mode.

When the shift lever is shifted fromD (Drive) to the manual shift gate with the vehicle stopped or while driving, the transmission enters the manual shift mode. Shift ranges can be selected manually. In the manual shift mode, the shift range is displayed on the position indicator in the meter. When moving the shift lever to the manual shift gate, the position indicator displays 1 (First) up to 7 (Seventh) depending on vehicle speed.

Shift ranges up or down one by one as follows:

1⇔ 2 ⇔ 3 ⇔ 4 ⇔ 5⇔ 6⇔ 7

7 (Seventh)

Use this position for all normal forward driving at highway speeds.

6 (Sixth) and 5 (Fifth)

Use this position when driving up long slopes, or for engine braking when driving down long slopes.

4 (Fourth), 3 (Third) and 2 (Second)

Use these positions for hill climbing or engine braking on downhill grades.

1 (First)

Use this position when climbing steep hills slowly or when driving slowly, or for maximum engine braking on steep downhill grades.

  • Remember not to drive at high speeds for extended periods of time in lower than seventh gear. This reduces fuel economy.

When shifting up

Move the shift lever to the + (up) side. (Shifts to higher range.)

When shifting down

Move the shift lever to the (down) side. (Shifts to lower range.)

The transmission will automatically downshift the gears. (For example, if you select the third range, the transmission will shift down between the third and first gears.)

Moving the shift lever rapidly to the same side twice will shift the ranges in succession.

When canceling the manual shift mode

Return the shift lever to the D (Drive) position to return the transmission to the normal driving mode.

  • In the manual shift mode, the transmission may not shift to the selected gear. This helps maintain driving performance and reduces the chance of vehicle damage or loss of control.
  • When this situation occurs, the ContinuouslyVariable Transmission (CVT) position indicator light will blink and the chime will sound.
  • In the manual shift mode, the transmissionmayshiftupautomatically to a higher range than selected if the engine speed is too high. When the vehicle speed decreases, the transmission automatically shifts down and shifts to first gear before the vehicle comes to a stop.
  • CVT operation is limited to automatic drive mode when CVT fluid temperature is extremely low even if manual shift mode is selected. This is not a malfunction. When CVT fluid warms up, manual mode can be selected.
  • When the CVT fluid temperature is high, the shift range may upshift in lower rpm than usual. This is not a malfunction.
