In addition to being extremely functional, with the fold-down rear seats the Murano is an excellent cross between a much-fun-to-drive sedan and a handy cargo carrier. Very comfortable seating, which is important to me because my wife has severe scoliosis; when we look at a new car, the first thing she's interested in is the comfort level of the seats. If its not comfortable for her twisted back, forget it!!! We look elsewhere. BTW, she has a '92 Maxima which we got new from the same dealer and she loves it. I've found no faults in either car and will not-doubt buy another when the time comes. And, oh yeah, the service from our dealership is AAA.
Power, handling, comfort, amenities, utility, reasonable gas mileage.
A genuine dual exhaust system, not the one-exhaust-pipe-splitting-to-two- tailpipes aft of the muffler.
