When I bought my 2011 Murano CrossCabriolet, I was driving a 2004 Chrysler Sebring and looking for a convertible with enough trunk space to get the groceries home with the top down and without a ton of black on the interior.
The Murano had, by far, the best trunk space for a convertible especially one with a hard boot. When I saw the Caribbean Blue convertible with the very light beige interior, I fell in love.
What I did not anticipate was all the other bonuses I got:
The attention, the compliments, the people walking over to you or pulling up next to you to ask if it is custom, tell you it is hot, ask what it is. I love driving something rare and different.
The Nissan comfort: A heated steering wheel is something you never knew you needed until you have one. My husband had owned a 2005 Maxima and this car definitely reminds me of that. The deep back seats not only look deep, comfortable and luxurious but feel that way too. Plenty of room for 4 adults and plenty of headroom even with the top up.
The Nissan reliability: Since July of 2012 when I bought it as a dealer demo with 1100 miles on it, it has only been in the shop for cleaning the roof and updating the navigation which were conditions of my purchase, the trunk lid bushings getting squished which caused the trunk lid to be out of allignment with the fenders when closed and oil changes. We did have one frustrating experience with a mis-aligned window causing an intermittent noise when closing the passenger door that took a long time to find because it only happened when the top was up and I never have the top up. However, once we finally figured out what it was, the service department couldn't have been better. Compared to the first 18 months of owning the Sebring - WOW!
I could go on and on about what I love about this car!
The only cons: My grandson can barely see out of the back windows even in his car seat.
It is definitely prettier with the top down and the top has a tendency to get black streaks.
I can't get away with anything - it is not a car for anyone trying to be discreet.
Don't Buy One! The only reason I am not recommending this car to all my friends is that I like having the only one around!
