A Good Car Except For The Rust That Develops As Years Go By. — Under-coating needs improvement, or a better paint job for long term ownership. I've not seen many older Nissan vehicles up in Northern New Yor without some rust spots due to the heavy salting, but I guess that can be expected in the area.

Classy — I've always considered this car my "undercover" sports car. The CVT transmission is cool and in conjunction with the V6 engine...you can move when you need to. It has been a great family vehicle and fun drive. Nissan makes a good product. Very little repairs in the first 10 years.

Excellent. I Do Recommend — Very good family compact Suv. Good sound system with Sub woffers (Bose System). Love that everything is powered. Great Features, Leather seating, large 18" wheels and the all wheel drive really help. Also a very comfortable car with heated seats, automatic climate control, power adjustable pedals and a sunroof. Excellent space in the back too.

One Of My Favourites — This was a great vehicle to drive - all the room of a minivan, and the performance of a "tall" sports car. This thing, even with the CVT transmission, is a great performer. The large 18" wheels and the all wheel drive really help. Also a very comfortable car with heated seats, automatic climate control, power adjustable pedals and a sunroof. Excellent space in the back too. the only "quibble" would be the lack of rear visibility - especially during lane changes, shoulder checks are tough because of the thick "C" pillars.

Big Car Drives Small — My Mom has a Top of the line Nissan Murano. This thing is loaded. Heated mirrors and leather seats, bose sound, air filter, power everything, large sun/moon roof, 6 disc in dash CD player, and my favorite...the memory seating. The thing that really won we over was the way this car handles. You have the room and comfort that and SUV has, but you get the power and feel of a sports car when your driving it. The Murano goes with a tap on the gas. This is backed by its standard 3.5L V6 engine that puts out a impressive 275 horepower. That is more than the lexus Rx330 and its cousin the highlander, and the Honda pilot. With that comes an estimated 24 miles per gallon on the highway. When the weather usn't so hot, the AWD system and all season tires can get you through some of the worst conditions. When your not worried about the weather, the Murano has a quick response and amazing pick-up. Its turns smooth as it hugs the road. Personally I think this is the best car for the money. It will be completely redesigned for 2009 and should be avalable for purchase or order today.
