Pros: FOLD DOWN REAR SEATS
Cons: MATERIAL USED ON SEATSTHE ROGUE HAS SURPRISED ME. NOT ONE SINGLE PROBLEM IN THE FIRST 20K MILES ALTHOUGH IT DOESN'T HAVE THE FEEL OF A MORE QUALITY CAR , (IT'S NOT DOMESTIC) IT'S A GOOD VALUE. 23 MPG ALL AROUND EXCELORATES WELL AND IS JUST A TAD WANDER LUST ON THE HIGHWAY'S QUALITY IS GOOD THROUGH OUT , EXCEPT FOR THE WEIRD MATERIAL USED FOR THE SEATS. I'D DEFINITLY BY ANOTHER AND FOR THE MONEY WOULD RECOMMEND TO ANYONE.
AwesomeGreat and comfortable!!
Better than most small vehicles
Pros: Rear wiper and defroster
Cons: overhead visor - needs a light or mirror thereThe vehicle is easy to handle, high gas mileage. The backseat sits up slightly so passengers can get a better view outside. Seats go down and I can carry alot more than if there was just a trunk. There seems to be on blind spot on the passengers side as I have had two occasions where I did not see a vehicle come up and my mirrors were set properly. Over all I rate it as good.
never again in this lifetime!
Pros: getting rid of it
Cons: all of itI leased this xterra to pull my boat - and it was the worst idea I have ever had. I will never buy another Nissan ever! From the shady sales tactics, the 'take every drop of blood' lease contract, the shoddy & expensive servicing, the astronomically poor gas mileage (11mpg if that), to the cheap metal and finish. This truck offers absolutely no comfort or peace of mind. I was constantly staring at the gas gauge every minute as $30 flew out of my wallet almost daily. It was insane. I took the truck back to nissan a week after I leased it hoping to trade for a different vehicle - needless to say they wouldn't do it. I posted it on leasetrade.. still no luck. I have now grinned and bared it for 3 years.. waiting for the day to turn it in. NOW they want $500 just to return it, PLUS $$$ for normal wear & tear!! Before this I leased an Audi.. they made me feel like a king. Free service for 3 years, a loaner car any time it was needed.. I was in 7th heaven. I guess I must have done someone wrong to be throw directly into Nissan HELL this time. word to the wise... don't do it. There is NOTHING sporty about this suv. no sunroof, no nothing.. just a big stinky gas gussling tin can.
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.
Cons: seatsGood price to value car.
