I should have NEVER purchased this car. It runs terribly, as if it's going to fall apart at any moment. I have had to put quite a bit of money into repairs in the just over a year that I have had the car. I got a bad deal on the financing, and I have a car note that is too high for the car in question. A bad deal on a car that is only okay.
This is a solid and versatile family car, especially for a non-luxury brand. It gets decent gas mileage, has a fair amount of power. The interior is roomy, both front and back seat, cargo space is ample, and the roof rack provides an easy way to expand for long trips via bike rack or rooftop carrier. The LE trim feels very much like you're driving an Infiniti, rather than a Nissan. My only gripe about this car is that we did not opt for the AWD option, and it handles very poorly in the snow.
I like the comfort of this vehicle. Taking 8 hour trips and not having a hurt back or legs is essential and the Murano delivers. I've been up through the mountains with ease through the snow and hills. The Murano travels great down the freeways into the deserts of Arizona. The navigation is ok. But it could use an update. Although this is a 2011 so it was probably the best at the time. I like the ease of opening the rear door and unlocking / locking without having to use a key. there is plenty of room for taking along everything when traveling and it's easy to lay the pack seats down to haul big loads. Done it all! Functional, stylish good fuel economy and still has the power of a V6 with AWD. Most suv's have 4cyl with no power. I love it!
