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.
2009 Xterra Off Road
Pros: Locking rear diff.
Cons: No exterior temp. gauge???Great power and torque for a heavy 4 X 4 and it handles well in the snow. Interior quality is very good with high quality materials. The over all ride is good but it is a truck so it will ride like one; it's not a Cadillac! I am Very satisfied with my X.
Great Vehicle for the money.
Pros: CVT Transmission
Cons: Road and Tire noiseTook my first road trip today. Drove fast and hard. Covered over 400 miles and still got 26 MPG. Rode comfortable and handled great. Only had 350 miles on it when we left this morning, so I think the MPG will be fine after break in miles. I recommend this vehicle for any age group.
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.
Dependable sexy reliable and playful
Pros: engine performance
Cons: radio -- lacks satellite and HDI love this car. Nissan makes a strong good car with reliability that goes beyond what the experts say. The car is overlooked in many categories but it fits many. Whether you're single, married, with one or two children the car is a perfect fit. It is great on the highway and responsive in the city. I do think the options can raise the price of car to ridiculous levels so go in knowing the price of the car and options and be firm on the end price. I would consider this car again but I hope that isn't for 7 years down the road.
