Impressive Showing from Nissan

Bought this car as a demo, so it was already broken in. Silver over black leather, LE trim. I'll get right to the "bad" parts. The dark interior makes the inside a black hole in some lighting situations and forces you to dust incessantly. Rear quarter visibility is compromised by styling. The radio display screen gets washed out easily in sunlight. The sunroof needs an exterior deflector because it is noisy when open over 40MPH. I keep bumping the headrest and moving it up when I get in because it tilts far forward. here is no light or click when engaging the cruise control. "Bad" is in quotations because I'm sure things that I mention won't bug everyone. Besides the above mentioned quibbles, the car has performed to my expectations. It rides just as comfortably as my old Cadillac Deville (however my wife says the seats are a little harder). It has features that we are just getting used to: memory seats, power liftgate, keyless entry/push button start, back-up camera. We both love these features. Ride height is about that of minivans, however sitting in the seats is a bit of a stretch, but not unmanageable. We also love the power return folding seats, that got a work-out after helping out our sun with a couple trips to Ikea. The ride with 20in wheels is fine. Acceleration is brisk, but not breathtaking. The noise from the engine isn't something that will get your heart racing, but it quiets down quickly, even at highway speeds. Scrubbing bugs off the windshield has proven difficult because of the height and size of the glass. Gas mileage is ok. I'm accustomed to getting high 20's on the highway, but this struggles to get 25. It also suggests mid- and high-grade fuel. I'm not going to chance long-term engine damage with regular. No mechanical faults to report and nothing has broken warranting a trip back to the dealer (a far cry from the Cadillac). Overall, I'm happy with my purchase. A few things keep it from garnering absolute praise, but not enough for me to seriously demerit the vehicle. 10000 mi, 6 mo. ownership.

When I reviewed new cars for purchase I actually did a side by side drive with the 2009 Lexus RX350 and found the Murano SL to be a more comfortable ride. I bought the mostly loaded leather SL package (no nav) and I couldn't be happier. I actually smile every time I get in the car and it's been 2 1/2 months so far. It drives like a dream, is very comfortable and the passenger seat is also very comfortable even on long drives (7+ hours). The back seats recline and have lots of leg room. Gas mileage is actually decent on long trips about 24 MPG. Around town I am getting about 18 with stop and go. I absolutely love the upgraded stereo, blue tooth, I-Pod connection and the back-up camera really helps and seems to impress everyone who see's it. It's a great car and I am thrilled I purchased it over the Acura RDX which is also great but much smaller.

I traded in an '04 silver Murano...cloth interior and little more, but did LOVE it. Traded it in for a black, fully loaded Murano this summer...leather, navi, dual moonroof...the works and will never, EVER regret the increase in payment. If you are thinking of buying one...do it! Worth every penny!

I can't say enough about the 2010 Murano. We bought the LE AWD with almost all the options except air conditioned seats. Hindsight says we should have sprung for that option here in Arizona. I suggest getting the Bose audio system option. Absolutely amazing sound! Nonetheless, this vehicle is a sweet ride that will not disappoint!

This is my 2nd Murano. I first owned a 2007 S Murano which I loved. I bought THAT car as a pre owned vehicle and besides having to change the battery, I had absolutely no problems with the vehicle! It was fun to drive and I was heartbroken when I lost it in the recent Sandy flood! Well, maybe it was a blessing in disguise because I have now upgraded to a 2010 Murano, and it is ver stylish, has many qualities of many luxury SUV's for 1/2 the price! It's a 2010, with 38,000 miles on it! Drives pretty good, but not as good as my 2007. Also has a push button start which I always get a kick out of! Great sound from the stereo, and to top it off, it has bluetooth for hands free talking. So far so good!

I love my almost new 2010 Murano SL. It has all the comforts like leather interior, moonroof, keyless entry and start, back up camera and auto fold seats. It also has power and is a smooth ride. It is my perfect Mommy mobile. I traded in my sports car for this SUV, so I wanted something with power, and the Murano delivers!

Nissan Murano 2010 LE review

This is my fourth Nissan and second Murano. Nissan has great service depts and helpful advisors. I drove the last Murano, a SE for 120k miles and was sad to see it go, but many mechanical problems were looming. I had none, so it was ok for me-bad for the next owner. This is a trend, I've noticed over all my Nissans - they're great for about 100k, then immediately start to fall apart. This 2010 Murano is very smooth riding, handles well and is very well appointed, with great workmanship. Not as sporty as the SE, but still able to handle any traffic situation Northeast drivers try to force on you. The 20in wheels strattle most of the potholes better than smaller wheels and help smooth out the ride. I test drove all the competition within the 35-42k range, and still the Murano is King.

This is our 2nd Murano, and we like this one even more than the last one. We have an SL AWD and are very pleased. It has a quiet refined ride, loads of room, and handles beautifully. Love the push button start, trip computer, rear camera and the overall comfort. Nissan has improved the interior and it feels like a much more expensive vehicle. Gas mileage is good. I would recommend the Murano to anyone looking at a crossover or mid size SUV.

By far the best vehicle I've ever own. Unfortunately my Murano had been totaled recently however we walked away with no major inquires. The vehicle was built very well and was designed to take the impact in increments which it did a great job.
