After Extensive Reviewing... Murano's My Choice!

Only have had my 2009 Murano SL AWD a few weeks, but it doesn't take long to appreciate something so exceptional. The car corners wonderfully (little or no understeer), immediately responds to acceleration (smoothly & quietly with admirable gas mileage), is very stable at moderate to high speeds, and, I feel, has controls designed and placed for safety and convenience. I love the orange colored guage displays!! I had road tested several 2006 Muranos prior to this purchase, and found that the 2009 IS so much quieter and responsive. Also the leather seating in the 2009 is so much more supple and comfortable than the 2006 (the perforated leather in the center area of the 2009's seats add to the 'softer' feel). Also, the keyless entry/start is fantastic (why haven't more cars makers picked up on this?). I have heard that some reviewers have complained about the rear view blindspot- I don't see this vehicle any worse than others I have driven.

TREMENDOUS RIDE

TRADED IN OUR HONDA PILOT BECAUSE WE JUST DIDN'T NEED AN 8 PASSENGER VEHICLE ANY LONGER. THE MURANO WAS THE PERFECT SIZE AND VERY STYLISH. THE GREATEST ATTRIBUTE IS THE SMOOTH SHIFTING DUE TO THE CVT, IT FEELS LIKE YOU ARE DRIVING AN ELECTRIC VEHICLE WITH HOW QUIET IT IS. THE ACCELERATION IS EFFORTLESS AND THE CABIN IS VERY COMFORTABLE.FINALLY, THE AWD IS A MUST WHEN YOU LIVE WITH BAD WEATHER AND STEEP HILLS.MY ONLY REGRET IS THAT IT IS MY WIFE'S CAR SO I USUALLY ONLY GET TO DRIVE IT ON WEEKENDS.WOULD RECOMMEND THE MURANO TO ANYONE WHO WOULD LISTEN.

I was driving a 1999 Honda Accord and I loved it, but it just wasn't big enough for me, my husband, and our new baby. I wanted an SUV that wasn't too truck like and I felt the smaller SUVs were too small. I always had Hondas in the past, but they didnt have the size I was looking for. I love the murano for its classy look and size. I got the LE and couldn't be happier. We love the leather heated seats and fold down back seat. I didn't think I could drive a big truck, but now I feel small when I'm in a car. This car is comfortable. The back up camera is a must! We had an issue with rattling in the wipers, but the dealer took care of it. I do have to put an extra tank of gas in a month than my previous car, but it is worth it to me. I also feel safe in this car.

great ride

by from wausau, wi on January 2, 2012

a lot of interior room, smooth ride, gas mileage not so good (have to give somewhere) now that the snow has started we are not concerned about visibility--we are happy with the Murano

I spent a few years shopping around before I decided on new vehicle. In the final selection, it was the Murano to suit my needs. Price, comfort, styling and most importantly a quiet ride with excellent handling for any crossover I tried made my decision easy. While it doesn't have third row seating (which one wonders if will be used for folks without many children anyway), it provides enough space & legroom for 4-5. Love the rearview camera for backing up and many new tech. features. I felt the Nissan Murano gave me the most bang for my buck, especially with the dual sunroof.

I have 1300 miles on my new Murano. I wanted to say goodbye to the minivan and looked at the Highlander, Pilot, Enclave, RAV4, Santa Fe. Knew the Murano was it when I drove it. I bought the SL FWD (don't need AWD) with the leather, premium, and technology packages. Interior is roomy and comfortable, powerful dual a/c a must in Arizona! It offers a VERY quiet, smooth drive and handling is firm and responsive. The power liftgate is handy, though a bit slow. The levers for the back seats to go down is very handy as well. Great Bose sound system with hands free bluetooth. Back-up camera is nice, though faded in strong AZ sun at times. Cargo space is adequate though not as roomy as some in its class. I wish it had more interior cup holders, especially in back. There is a center console that pulls down with 2 cup holders in the back, but if you have 3 seated in the second row, you need to lift that up and lose the cup holders. There are some blind spots in the rear because of the shape of the back window which I am getting used to. Overall gas mileage is 20.5 mpg with mixed driving. This is my first Nissan, so I can't say too much about reliability so far, but I LOVE MY MURANO and hope to be driving it for a very long time. Recommended it if you don't need a third row and want to get a lot of bang for your $.

After purchasing a Armada & Pathfinder, I went ahead and purchased a crossover for my daily driver. Wife took it day 1 and will not give it back! Not too bad driving the Pathfinder, but the Murano is the best car I have had so far. Comfortable, great looks (LE package), and kids love the back seat legroom. I am 6'4" and fit very comfortably back there.

Very nice vehicle with leather interior, dual sunroofs, and navigation. This vehicle has all the features you would want on a dependable ride. An optional all wheel drive which I may not need in Florida, but will come in handy if making any winter trips to the north. The gas mileage is not great at about 20 mpg, but I'll sacrifice that for comfort and safety. I also own a 2005 Murano with almost 200,000 miles on it that I feel is a pretty bulletproof package. I would recommend anyone looking for an SUV to strongly consider a nissan murano.

Nissan has hit a "home run" with the 2009 Murano. This vehicle offers convenience, technology, and comfortability, all in one package! I'm more impressed with this vehicle, six weeks after purchasing, than I was the day that I bought it! Let me say this as 'simply' as I can --- if you're looking for a new vehicle, especially but not exclusively a crossover, you aren't doing yourself justice if you don't test drive the 2009 Murano......
