Great Family Vehicle — I am 6 foot 4 and I had plenty of room to drive. Love how it handles on the road and travels. I am not in love with the gas mileage but it is an SUV so I can't be too picky. Love this car for what it is worth!

Pros

I love that it has dual temperature settings so you can set it what you want on your side and the passenger can set the temp to their liking.

Cons

It only takes Premium gas

It Is A Great Suv To Have Up North During The Winter — Performance: Smooth ride, good brakes and nice engine sound Build Quality: I haven't had any issues with it yet...great so far! Appearance: I would have preferred a black or silver Murano but the Merlot color is growing on me. The sleek lines and chrome accents are a nice touch. It is a very classy SUV. :) Cost of Ownership: I put $50 a week (Premium Gas...gives me 3/4 of a tank) a week and it lasts me a week. I got a great deal on the car with very low mileage. Fun Factor: Yes it is fun to drive, I can play in the snow now without getting stuck.

Predictable And Reliable — I've been pleased. I'd encourage everyone to own a Murano if you want a smaller SUV that's reliable and looks nice. The gas mileage is good but not great. I have rarely had it in the shop except for the typical oil change.

Pros

Love how this car handles & very reliable! Safety features are great too

Cons

Nothing enough for car seats, back seats need to be roomier to allow car seats to fit without moving front seat up.

Great Car But Not Big Enough For Family — Great mid size SUV love all the features but not big enough for our rear facing car seat & growing family. Safety features are great & very reliable vehicle like the double sun roof & built well. Wish the back seat was bigger with more leg room.

Awesome in the snow. Great Handling. No maintenance problems.

Cons

Power on take-off leaves a little to be desired.  Acceleration at speed is great though!

Great Medium Sized Crossover — Car looks nice. Front is aggressive for a crossover. Interior is like a luxury car. Beautiful inside and great looks outside. Take off torque could be a little better, but no complaints once you're moving. Passes without hesitation, and very smooth with the CVT.

Murano Has Surprises For You! — Nissan Murano ST (AUSTRALIA) is pretty good for its class as a SUV. Very comfortable, transmission is smooth, engine sounds good and powerful, base model has heaps of things already included which is not with the other make and models. Its has leather seats, stearing and gear knob and also 6stacker disc(MP3 compatible) on dash which is very nicely matched with bose speakers and sounds very nice. Safety features like front and side airbags, vehicle stability control, anti lock braking, brake distribution etc. Its bit thirsty but pretty similar to the other AWD vehicles of its class and in the same time should settle down after 10k i think.

I don't really like the smart key.  I want to have the radio on without the vehicle running.

Beautiful! Spacious! Lots Of Features! — I love the way the 2009 Murano drives. It's smooth. It doesn't shift gears hard. I have to be careful not to exceed speed limits because I truly don't realize just how fast I'm traveling the ride is so easy! The iinside is like a dream! Soft leather. Leg room! LOVE IT!

Crossover With A Different Look. — Have been very happy with Nissan cars owned in the past. Like the look and feel of the Murano. Also feel it should be a reliable and comfortable car. Prices for the 2009 seem very high as they are only 12-25% less than a new Murano.

Awesome Car — Has all the options. Very smooth ride. Great acceleration. A little pricey considering its not a luxury brand, but it compares very well to the Lexus RX, Acura MDX and alike. The iPod connection could be better if it charged your iPod while playing.
