I owned a 2003 Murano from 4/06-5/10.
Here are a few bullet points.
•The SE ride is very rigid...the suspension is supposed to be sport tuned but it is awfully rough and rigid.
Had to replace struts at 70K and when I traded it in, a couple of the motor mounts were shot.
•The frame on the driver's seat broke, so the window side of the seat sagged down.
Did some research and found I was not alone.
Nissan wanted to replace the seat at $1500+. No thanks.
•The HID head light went out.
Bought a replacement bulb for $180. That blew right after putting it in.
Bought another one, same thing.
Turns out it was the transistor housing for the bulb.
Traded it in for a Camry.
Interior & Exterior design.
Should have known when I bought a first year production. Hopefully they improved upon some things over the year.
