I purchased my 2009 Murano at Carmax and it was the first time I purchased a car from them. Here are my observations:
1. The car: Love it. We went with the intent of buying a different car but fell in love with the Murano. It is the SL model but it had most of the "upgrades" the SE has. The dual sun roof was a big hit with the family. Performance is very good, especially at high speed when trying to pass. Comfort is excellent, including the back seats and the ride is very smooth, much better than some standard size SUVs (which we also have). Mileage is about 21-23 mpg, but it has been mostly city driving. We have not taken any long trips yet, and we expect to see better mileage then. The only bad observation I've seen so far is the acceleration from stop, which seems a little sluggish, but then picks up quickly. Would highly recommend it.
2. Carmax: This was our first experience with Carmax (Dulles, VA). In a nutshell, it was a very pleasant experience from start to end. Their pricepoints were competitive. Only issue was my car trade in, for which they did not give me the price I expected (understanding it had very high mileage.) I had it estimated by other places before I went to Carmax, and considering all the factors, the average trade in value was about $1200 more than what Carmax offered. So I had to shell out more money for the down payment. Other than that, I would go back again to Carmax to shop for another car.
