Stylish and Comfortable

Love all the bells and whistles! I couldn't be happier with this vehicle! drove it from Ohio to Florida - for a long drive, it was so comfortable!


Why is there no recall on the Liftgate

I own a 2017 Nissan Murano SL. I’ve already had the liftgate repaired once (1 1/2 year ago) because it wouldn’t open. Luckily it was still under warranty. But now it’s not opening again, but I’m a little over 40,000mi now & was quoted $800. Why?? Seems like it’s going to need fixed every year. I have seen MANY people stating the same issues with your liftgates, so why is it not on recall & fixed properly?? To last??? I’m so annoyed!!!


Best vehicle I have owned.

I love my Murano so very much. The way it drives and the look of the vehicle inside and out. Plenty of room for the family.
