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.)

Pros: everthing of this car is good for me

Cons: little bit underpowered

Best All Around Vehicle — Love the truck. It's just hard to get it out of my wife's hands! It is a must for winter driving, verry transparent operation. Better highway fuel economie that my 95 maxima I use to have. With a lot more rear leg room, specialy at the rear.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Exellent fuel economie

Cons: Dont drive it often enough!

Never had any problems. 18-20 mpg. Great car for going around town, easy to get around heavy traffic, and yet very comfortable on long trips.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Smooth drive, AWD, easy to do errands around town

Cons: none

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

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
