Pros: lots of room to enter vehicle and screen feature
Cons: could use a little more room in rear re: grocery shoppingboth my wife and I use canes to get around and the roominess helps quite a bit for inside mobility
Pros: I like almost everything about it
Cons: The climate control system leaves a bit to be desiredThis is probably the most comfortable vehicle I've ever owned and is a dream to drive! It's attractive and the perfect size for carrying maximum cargo without being overly large! It's a great road car for longer trips as well.
Pros: roomy and quiet
Cons: transmission failureI generally enjoy my Murano. After several american bombs I switched to Nissan in 2003. Unfortunately the Japanese are no more customer-centered than the USA! They have a major PROBLEM with the CVT transmission for which they refuse to initiate a recall. I'm talking biggggg bucks for repair. It is systemic and affects models over multiple years. I wish that automakers would step up and be accountable for their errors. If not for how they handled this issue I would have purchased another one.
Pros: All wheel drive
Cons: wind noiseLoyal Toyota drive, but wife wanted a Murano. Very pleased so far. 10,000 so far. Drives great and runs good for 6cyl. Only down side is it has some wind noise from the rack on top. Traction on the AWD is great. Corners like a sports car. Still love my Toyotas but this is a very nice car.
AwesomeGreat and comfortable!!
Solid Family Transportation
Pros: Luggage flexibility
Cons: Could have more roomy front seats but I am big alsoThe Murano has 135000 miles with no major repairs. The built in CD Player has a mechanical problem that needs attention. The gas mileage is 22MPG. The fold down back seats allow great flexibilty and maximum luggage capabilty. I would definitely buy another Murano.
Very fine vehicle
Pros: Road manners
Cons: view to rearOf the 20 to 30 vehicles I've owned over the years, the Murano is overall the best for my needs which include several long (multi-day) trips a year. My only quibble - and an annoying one - relates to terrible rear visability. This is something that styling has dictated, of course. Changing the shape of the 'triangular', rear, side windows so that they become larger can be done in a way that harmoniously blends with other body work, and will largely solve the problem, making the vehicle safer. The vehicle performs and hanndles very well, is really roomy and comfortable for four, and has more hauling capacity than one would think because of the wide space between wheel wells.
