    Worth The Money! — Turning radius not as wide as you would expect for the car... takes some getting used to. it is a fun car to drive! The sound system is a Bose, therfore it's awesome! Its a Japanese car built in Japan, therefore it is rock solid! Gas Milage kind of sucks, but it is over all a good car!

    Pros: Great Sound System

    Cons: Turning Radius

    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: Fast, smooth, plenty of attitude and space, quality controls and components, bose speaker system

    Cons: chinks here n there that take ages to solve plus not to mention expensive maintainance.

    I Love This Vehicle, It Never Gets Old! — I love my 2005 Nissan Murano SL. It drives so smooth, surprisingly smoother than my 2002 Lexus RX 300, that I had a couple uears ago, I never thought ANYTHING would drive smoother than the Lexus, but when I drove this, it did!! But, the sticker on the car says that its supposed to get 20/25, but it really only gets 14 MPG :(

    Owner for 2 years, 0 months

    Miles Driven per Year:10,000

    Pros: Turning Radius, Acceleration, CVT Transmission, Sunroof.

    Cons: Gas Mileage

    Best Crossover Ever — this car is really quiet and can confuse you if you don't know when it is on or off

    Pros: one really quiet car

    Cons: controls are a little confusing

    Excellent Family Suv For Commuting And Bad-weather Or Gravel Roads. — This has been a very good vehicle for my family. Wife drives it most the time taking the kids to school and road trips and such. It drives well in all weather and all road conditions. For DIYers the engine access can be a pain but the 3.5L engine is a rock-solid engine. Suspension is soft and if get under the chassis you see quickly it's not an off road vehicle and honestly I wouldn't take if off-road anymore than gravel roads but for the camping my family does for now it works. And if it hangs around long enough we will pass it on to our kids when they are of age and ready.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Unique copper exterior and copper leather interior.  Power sun roof. AWD with electronic 4x4 mode.  CV transmission is smooth.  3.5L engine is a rock solid engine.  AWD Handles extremely well in rain/snow/sleet/ice/gravel roads.  Very smooth ride.  Power adjustable pedal position.

    Cons: Does not have speed control auto locks.  It's actually a front-wheel-drive vehicle with rear wheel assist.  CV transmission seams to rob some torque/HP from the performance.  Engine is sideways to the front of the vehicle and very difficult to access accessory drives and rear set of spark plugs.  Spark plug change-out can be expensive.  Not a true off-road vehicle.  Does not have seat/mirror memory settings.  Does not have power heated seats.  Cargo space starts to get "small" as the family grows.  Handling is "gooshy" around corners.

    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.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Just about everything

    Cons: Looks a little too feminine for younger guys to own
