Great All Around Car. — Just a great all around vehicle, but a bit too soccer mom-ish for my 21 year old self. Great gas mileage, good power, super comfortable and a ton of space. Handles more like a car than an SUV. Bose stereo was ok, adding 2x12" subwoofers helped. A bit plasticy inside, but overall a great vehicle. Bulletproof engine, CVT trans factory covered for 10yr/120k miles.

Devalued FAST, not even worth 1/4 of what I paid for it when it was 3 years old.

2005 Nissan Murano Sl Awd — goes through oil like CRAZY although I have changed it and the filter regularly since I bought the car brand new. Makes some crazy noises and it sounds like everything under the car is going bad. It is great in the winter and drives like a dream. Nice ride and handling. Love the looks especially the interior. Everything is so expensive for it and it seems like you need to go to the dealer for EVERYTHING. HORRIBLE trade in value even though it's in near perfect condition. I'll never buy another one just because of that.

Imposing Presence — Very smooth and power-filled drive. Power on demand although when u hit 170-180 Kph then it takes a bit of time to hit 200-220 Kph. Throttle response very impressive. Fast off the mark, braking very good. Although i find it had problems with its disc, had a fren u thru a fit when it didn't get fixed even after 3 visits to the service center. The problem leads to heavy vibrations on the steering between 100-120 under braking. Service center asked my friend to change the disc's to solve the problem. Don't know if its fixed yet. But, i think a simple skimming of the disc's might solve it.

Pros

everthing of this car is good for me

Cons

little bit underpowered

Wow — this car is so great, for me this car is so perfect. the exterior is so great, i prefer this one compare to the new murano. the interior quality n spaceness is also good. when u in driver seat, u'll have a great view to every corner of car. more bose sound system is okay, but if u want to spend more money to upgrade it with 2 amplifier n 2 sub, u'll have a great sound system. the only disapoinment came from its performance. the cvt transmission is not fun n enjoy to use. but cvt improve its gas efficiency. overall this is a one great car, i have owns it for 4 years, n will not think to sell it.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
