Took advantage of an excellent trade-in opportunity, great offer from dealer inventory, along with 0% financing to purchase a nicely redesigned 2015 Platinum edition Murano. Through a little less than 12K miles, really happy with the purchase. Ride is smooooooth, performance is more than adequate, and cabin is incredibly comfortable. Ample room for 4 adults (maybe 3 children in rear seat). Front seats are especially comfortable and ventilated feature on the Platinum edition works well and is a clutch feature in a hot climate. If you're willing to go for the SL trim, spend the extra $$ to get the Platinum - well worth it. And gas mileage is as advertised - consistently around 20-21 MPG around town and have only taken one highway trip where average was about 25-26. Cargo space is excellent - this is a "big car" without feeling like you're driving a big car. There are many great cars out there but to me what sets Nissan apart is 2 things, styling (you love it or hate it) and technology. This car is a perfect example. The NAV screen in this car is nearly as big as my iPad and the around view monitor makes parking and backing-up a breeze. It should be standard on every car. The driver assistance technology is also a great feature, blind-spot warning, collision warning, smart cruise control.....all makes me wonder how soon it will be before we have driver-less cars. The only drawback I can force myself to point out (so far anyway) is the legroom in the rear may be a bit tight for tall adults, but not to the point of being uncomfortable. If you are looking for a 7-passenger non-minivan, this isn't it, check out the Pathfinder. But if you don't need more than 4-5 passenger capacity and want a nicely designed, comfortable, smooth-driving, technology-rich car - that happens to get decent gas mileage, keep the Murano on your list.

My wife knew that I was eyeing the 2015 Murano and so for my 60th birthday she bought one for me. Imagine my surprise when I saw my new Platinum Murano in Pacific Sunset with a big red ribbon on top waiting for me in the garage when I got home from 3 weeks on the road. I really like this car. It drives great and has a lot of power. The blind spot safety feature is great, and I love the technology package. I'm 6'1 and don't fell cramped in. The seats are comfortable with plenty of leg room. The interior has a quality look and feel. There are so many nice features I can't name them all but if you're considering a Murano you will not be disappointed.

This is my 3rd Murano. I owned a Gen 1 for 6 yrs and LOVED IT. even tho it started to have some problems, but I traded it in at 117K and the engine was still strong. I bought a 2013 Gen 2. Loved the styling. But when I saw the new 2015 and the total new design..I kept eyeing it until I found a great deal and traded in the Gen 2 for the new Gen 3. The styling is awesome. The technology is fantastic. I will say the only thing I miss is the AWD LOCK button. I liked that, being in New England and the winters here, This new Gen 3 drives so smooth, and handles like my Audi's used to. VERY responsive. I hope to keep this new one for a long time.

This is a new Nissan purchase for us and we love our 2015 Murano! It handles the road with FWD efficiency, great gas mileage so far, and the comfort and spaciousness is fantastic. The safety features are wonderful and, therefore visually, I do not feel that blind-spot issues are a problem for me. The seats and ride are the most comfortable of any SUV (Edge, SanteFe, Venza, etc.) that I test drove and I can't say enough about the beautiful interior! What a great job Nissan did with their re-design of this very nice truck! They thought of everything!

Fantastic vehicle. I've only owned for a month but I must say so far I can not fault this vehicle on looks and performance.. Extremely comfortable, responsible, and agile. Superb balance of everything you would want in a crossover, except that rear view visibility is not as good as I would like, which is the opinion of the professional reviewers as well, and there is a bit of a clicking sound coming from the sunroof which I am scheduled to have resolved.

2015 Nissan Murano Platinum

This is my first Nissan purchase. My old vehicle was a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland. I would've thought that the 2015 Murano Platinum was comparable to the Grand Cherokee Overland...boy was I wrong. The 2015 Nissan Murano rides like a luxury SUV, similar to the Acura MDX. The Grand Cherokee rides like a...Jeep. Here's my review of key features of each vehicle and which is better in my opinion... ENGINE/POWER: Murano...even though only 3.5L V-6, about 1500 pounds lighter. OFFROAD CAPABILITY: Jeep RIDE/COMFORT: Murano...hands down MPGs: Murano TECHNOLOGY: Tie QUIETNESS: Murano...hands down LUXURY: Murano PRICE: Murano SUMMARY: Compared to the Murano, the Grand Cherokee Overland rode extremely hard...you can feel every bump in the road. The Murano is so incredibly quiet and soft ride, it has the feel of a luxury SUV...think Acura MDX or Lexus GX.

Comfortable vehicle with very nice interior(all soft padding and nice materials). Engine has enough power and torque. My previous car was a 2010 Passat wagon(had thinner cheaper plastics that creaked in the heat and the engine suffered from carbon build up/hesitation due to Direct Injection, plus the DSG transmission exhibited lurching/bucking forward when hot, very un-refined). The CVT compared to that is day and night. Also, the Murano engine is port injected, in theory i shouldn't have the same issues. Only thing missing, compared to my previous vehicle, is Sport mode on the transmission, but I do understand this car is mostly built for comfort/touring. I avg 26.5 mpg in mixed traffic(some days with really bad stop and go traffic). Have seen 33mpg on the hwy. So far no major complaints, the car comes close to be near perfect for what was built for.

I bought the 2015 Nissan Murano Platinum, now that the 2016 have arrived at dealerships, LOVE this car, it is my second Murano previously had 2003. I have had the car 3 weeks and took a road trip to lake mead and the car performed beyond anything I could have imagined. Nissan has truly taken this car to the next level! I would highly recommend this vehicle to anyone looking to get more bang for their buck!

Really enjoy the 2015 Murano Platinum style, ride and quality. No other car on the road turns heads like this SUV.

Amazing stylish very futuristic!! Inside not so good: very stiff steering wheel. The 2014 Murano steering wheel is so responsive and light. I'm 6'2'' and I have no issues into my 2014 Murano but the 2015, my right leg hits the new padding installed, so lower leg room. Front A bars and rear styling has reduced visibility. 2014 Murano: much better visibility. Also the gear D plus minus is slightly confusing for new users and even dealers here don't know very well.
