Pros: CVT and automatic seat/mirror adjustment
Cons: I'm not fond of the long dash - it can cause glare when the sun is shining down on it just right
Advice: Buy one now if you are thinking about it - the styling is perfect as is.I trusted my husband - I didn't 'test' drive a 2004 Murano until I drove it off the lot. This is because I didn't have my contacts in when we went to test drive it. He raved about it and I haven't seen another vehicle since that was more beautiful so I took a leep of faith. Boy, have I not been disappointed. Extremely quiet interior, more room than we could've hoped for on the inside (my husband is 6'6', I'm 5'9'), has a lot of pick up and go, long trips are a pleasure now.
Advice: get best pricedrive it you will buy it best suv in it class
Pros: the ride is tops.
Advice: buy it your love iti love this nissian i have owned several cars and this has shown to be a winner. I have driven it in the worst of weather and it is great on the road . The ride is like a luxury auto and the handling is the best of any suv i have ever driven.
Pros: heated seats
Cons: blind spot
Advice: A lot of vehicle for the moneyreally drove nice.like the comfort.
Pros: I have no favorite feature. I'm pleased with the entire package.
Cons: Initially the exterior. I've grown to love the styling
Advice: Don't Judge a Book by It's Cover. Please!!!!! test drive this crossover for yourselfMy first impression of the Murano was not favroble at all. However, once I sat inside and drove this crossover, my opinion changed very quickly. It became the perfect fit. This vehicle is exceptional and provides outstanding performance. Previously owned New #5 Fords, #3 GM products, #2 Honda Accords, #4 Nissan products (Nissan's quality surpasses the above vehicles)
Cons: Back bumper not protected enought when loading gear.
Advice: Shop around for the best price and get the loaded version. You will not regret it.I love my Murano 2003 Nissan. I haven't had one issue with this vehical. The navigaition feature is excellent. The leather heated seats are a plus. I would recomend this vehical to anyone who needs utility, as well as, comfort. In addition, it preforms on the road better than any vehical in it's class. Very fast off the line and excellent acceleration when passing on the highway.
Pros: The fabulous smooth ride and braking
Cons: The funky mustard yellow gauge dials
Advice: Drive the others, look at the safety ratings, side curtain airbags, etc. then take this oneAfter driving virtually every SUV on the market in the past month, I found the Murano to be the most comfortable, smooth riding, and totally refreshing vehicle out there. Looks similar to the Infiniti FX, but there's no comparison in the feel of the ride. I will be purchasing the SL FWD with the NAV pkg - lots of options, and for the price, you receive so much more than the comparable (Lexus RX330, Toyota Highlander, or even the Toureg). The styling is so unique - like it or not, you are not seeing them coming and going, as I do with the Lexus in my area. I loved the adjustable pedals in combination with the adjustability of front seat and steering wheel - it was perfect. The cargo area was more than enough. Great ease folding the rear seats down with so much leg room if not needing cargo space. Especially liked the color choices/interior leather combinations available. The resistance to roll-over rated 4 star - on par with Honda Pilot, which by the way was better than the Lexus RX or the Toyota Highlander. It is so quiet, so effortless to maneuver and just a pleaure. Not bad on gas mileage a plus, these days.
