Bought our gold Murano new in 2003 and use it for long long road trips. We've put over 75000 miles on her and she's going strong. We checked out the Mercedes and Lexus SUVs at the time, and they were noisier. We enjoy the quiet ride of the Murano. We can carry on a conversation without yelling. There's lots of room for the two of us and our dog. The ride is great; there's power to spare. Gas mileage is so-so (20 mpg), but we have only used regular gas and the engine runs great.
Leather seats with plenty of adjustments, the automatic window-opening feature of the key-fob, the big wheels, the great headroom of the tailgate (and the lights), the quiet ride, with little air noise or road noise. Automatic headlights.
Input and output jacks for the Bose. Should be able to retro-fit the radio for satellite.
