I had been searching for about a year as we had time before we needed to replace my wife's car. I went through alot of different vehicles like the 4runner, Tuscon, Acadia, and Edge. My main criteria was good MPG and maximum hi-tech value.
The Murano beat all of them, virtually hands down. Largest navigation screen in its class, check. Largest music storage device, check. Bluetooth with address book transfer, check. Voice activated controls, check. Most advanced rear camera parking system, check. Power lift gate AND Power down/lift rear seats, double check.
Besides the tech features, I found that comfort seemed to be the primary goal. The cabin is spacious, I feel like I'm in a cavern and expect to hear echoes. It has an air recirculation system that operates very well, maintain a very comfortable environment. The seats are very wide, which is great for me as I'm 6'1. I could use a couple more inches for leg room but it�s not a huge deal and my wife is the primary driver. The ride is very smooth and when you have a conversation, it�s like you�re at home as it is very quiet in the cabin.
The performance really took me off guard. I barely tap the gas pedal and off I go as a really good clip, even at higher speeds. Recently I was on a 70mph highway and needed to go around a semi-truck. I pushed the pedal and before I realized it, I had zoomed up to 80mph and cleanly went around and pulled in front of the semi-truck. Very fun.
Overall, a very good vehicle that has a history of being a long lasting and comfortable ride. I'm looking forward to the next 100K or so of miles."
