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.


Driving luxury!

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.


Our 2010 Murano LE

We purchased a 2010 Nissan Murano LE a little over a month ago. Purchased the Murano over the Tribeca and Highlander because of styling and amenities. The LE comes with all the bells and whistles , looks good and is a treat to drive. The interior is appointed very nicely and the 2 person programable drivers seat is a definite plus. It's comfortable with plenty of room for 4, backup camera is nice to have, as is the Nav system. Did not notice the noise with the sun roof. Overall a great choice of a vehicle.



Gas mileage could be better for the size and needs side steps or running boards. Comfort and Style is at Nissan best!


Do not buy one with a sunroof

i bought my Nissan Muran two months ago. I took a ride around the dealership and loved it. When i drove it on the hwy the wind noise is so loud at 50+ miles per hour. Nissan basically told me to fly a kite as the noise is not a problem . My question is this not a problem for who one who sold me a substandard car for over 32K or for for me who trusted nissan with my hard earned money and expected a car with no issues



I researched this car extensively online before I actually test drove it. I knew I wanted something that handled well, had comfortable seats for distance driving, and was more reliable than my previous car. I have a Murano SL AWD and it met all of my needs. The seats are very comfortable and roomy. I was able to get it with leather, sunroof, rain-sensing wipers, bose sound system, etc. The transmission does take some time to get used to but I'm not concerned. Since I've only had it a few weeks I can't speak to its long-term reliability. I believe Nissans has a good reputation. I considered other crossovers in the same class before purchasing. I'm very happy with the Murano SL.

accelleration is hard to get used to not sure how the map gets updated very comfortable and easy to manuever


Great Quality and Value for Mid-Size SUV

We reviewed and tested all the major mid-size SUV's available today. We have an Acura MDX and love it, but we wanted an mid-size SUV with better gas milage for our second car. We ended up getting the Murano LE. With the NAV, Power Liftgate, Security, CVT Trans, it is the most quiet vehicle we have ever had - and that's saying a lot. Nissan has stepped up to the plate and delivered a high end quality SUV!





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.
