Acceleration has gotten better with time, though might be attributable to actually using higher octane gasoline. I should have gotten all-wheel drive, as I was coming from Audi Q5, but front wheel drive model rides smoother. Friends and family always complimenting on the nice ride, and also like exterior styling.
Murano has more room than Q5, and has a nicer interior (leather like material, nice lighting, and sleek panels). I don't like that is has low towing capacity, but I've sold my boat, so no big deal. I've owned it a year and a half, and have only had to change the oil and air filters. Oil changes are also much cheaper, than with Audi. AC works good, and radio system is OK for SV model. I've heard Platinum model has a better sounding system.
Warning system beeps if it thinks I'm getting sleepy on the road (measures eyesight?) and also beeps if I'm getting too close to a car in front and not going the right speed. Usually I don't need these, but good to know they're looking out for me. The yellow warning light on side mirrors warning of vehicles in my blind spot gets a little annoying, but has probably come in handy a couple of times where I didn't actually look behind my shoulder.
Overall, happy with the purchase. It's not a Lexus or one of those higher priced luxury SUVs, but you get more value with this one. Any more $ spent, and you're just spending on the brand, which is fine, if that's what you're looking for.
Performance is better than good, though I couldn't rate it Excellent knowing that the Porsche and Jaguar SUVs probably have better performance. And again, at a much higher price, and with bad gas mileage. I average 24.6 mpg with the Murano with a V6 motor!
