Great Suv Overall — I love the fact it drives more like a car than a bulky SUV or truck. It has been very reliable for 9 years. Paint still looks new. Leather has cracked a little. This is a very solid vehicle that looks almost new after 9 years.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Drives more like a car than an suv. Excellent handling on snow and clean roads. Looks great 9 years after purchase. Engine is great.

Cons: Repair cost is average. Cargo space is ave. Gas mileage has been a little disappointing at 19 mpg.

Stylish And Comfortable Medium Sized Family Vehicle — I will update this later, but my impressions so far are all poitive for this vehicle. It runs great, stays clean under the hood, has had few issues and maintenance dowsnt seem to bad, except fo rthe cost of transmission fluid changes and flushes.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good power, extremely comfortable interior.  Good looking interior.

Cons: Transmission maintenance costs are higher than normal cars.  Not much to "customize" in he vehicle.

Great Car! — I love the look and the comfort of this car. It rides smooth and the navigation system is great! The heat warmer is a great feature in the winter as well. The fold down seats in the back is great for room!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: This car runs awesome! I have had it for 2 years and had no problems.

Cons: I do local driving so the gas is alot for me.

Outstanding Crossover Suv...for The Mid-aughts —

We leased our 2005 Murano S after renting one during a trip. About three months before the lease was up, the redesigned 2009 Murano arrived. My wife and I did not like the new design, so we went to the local Nissan dealer to see how we could get out of our lease three months early and into one of the last 2007 Muranos left on the lot. No dice -- without paying a bunch of extra money to terminate the existing lease early. So we bought ours at the end of the lease. We have the base S model with front-wheel drive. Living in California, we don't need AWD, and my wife didn't want leather seats. Unfortunately, the S was not available with stability control, one safety feature we definitely wish our car had. Now, a decade after this design first debuted, and after we first drove the Murano, we still love the looks and almost everything about the way it drives. The droning CVT is awful, but otherwise this is a reasonably quick and reasonably entertaining crossover, and we like the firm ride quality and the heavy steering. We haven't re-set the trip computer in about 40,000 miles, and it reads 19.5 mpg. There is plenty of space inside of our Murano, and it serves well as a family car. The trunk is large, the rear seats are roomy, and the front seats are supportive with tall seating positions. We like the modern and minimalist dashboard design, though the digital display definitely looks its age in terms of graphics. We've taken many road trips in our Murano, which has proven to be exceptionally reliable. Owners have problems with the CVT, though, and while Nissan has extended the warranty on this component, I'm not looking forward to replacing it if it breaks. Given how little we've spent on this vehicle otherwise, I can cut it some slack. If we elected to replace our Murano today, we would not get a 2013 version. Nor would we choose a 2013 Pathfinder. Instead, we would be shopping for a Dodge Durango (!), a Ford Flex, or a Honda Pilot. The Durango, in our opinion, is much nicer in terms of design, quality, functionality, and driving dynamics than most people give it credit. But since our Murano has just 65,000 miles, we'll hang on to it for awhile.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: We like everything about our 2005 Murano except for the CVT-drone, the lack of stability control (we have the S model), and its increasingly obvious age in terms of technology and engineering.

Cons: The CVT drones, occasionally slips, and is definitely the worst thing about owning this vehicle.

Love The Car! — This car is reliable, comfortable, looks great, nice power, very safe. It very very clean. Has no problems and great for driving. It is safe because it is all wheel drive and one of the best cars in the snow.

Pros: Reliability, comfort, great look, power, saftey

Cons: mileage

L Have Loved The Dependability — I thought the gas miles should have been better, 22 in town, 28 hi way. Handling is super responds great at any speed, AC will freeze you, and I feel safe with all the air bags, curtain seat, and dash on both sides.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Comfortable on long trips to Il , and Or down the west coast to La and back to As.

Cons: No rear view camera, no navi system.
