I have owned my 2010 Nissan Murano SL for over two years now. Besides wanting a truck, I would not trade this for anything else. It has been across the country a few times and has done it very well. Gas Mileage is great, in my opinion. I can get about 375 miles on an 18 gallon tank. Considering mine is a 3.5L V-6, that' is not bad at all. It currently has just under 78K miles and is still in great condition. The only things missing from mine are the navigation, AWD, and the latest generation of Bluetooth connectivity for listening to music. It has Bluetooth connectivity ONLY for the phone and the controls are on the steering wheel. A feature I did not know it had was the power seats in the back. The rear seats fold down almost flat to utilize the rear cabin. Once you are done, there are TWO places where you can raise the rear seats automatically. One is by the driver door next to the steering column. Simply push down on the two buttons and each half of the rear seat comes up and locks in place. The other area where the power buttons are is in the rear cabin on each side of the tailgate. There, you will see a latch AND the button (sideways). Pull on the latch and rear seat-backs go down. Activate the button and the seat-backs come up. LOVE that feature.
I love the leather seats and the front heated seats for those cool winter and late fall nights. One of my favorite features is the DOUBLE POWER SUNROOF. It is darkly tinted glass and allows both the front and rear passengers a view of the sky.
One item that needs to be mentioned: TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System).
I bought my Murano with the tires already having been filled with NITROGEN. I live in the desert and nitrogen does not like heat very well. Since it is thicker than air, I believe it is better suited for colder climates. That being said, the TPMS warning light stays on for all of my drives. On occasion it will blink but will stay solid on after a while. I believe that will be rectified when I change out the nitrogen to regular compressed air. In this case, I merely check the tire pressure myself every week or so, just to be safe. Up to this point, I have NEVER had an issue with the TPMS light staying on.
Overall, I have had a very good experience with my vehicle. My better half loves it, especially the heated seats in the cold months. Up to now, i have not had ANY mechanical issues and I change the oil about every 5000 miles. I used a synthetic blend in the winter and full synthetic in the summer.
I hope people who read this review get some good information and make a sound choice. I would DEFINITELY recommend this vehicle to others.
