I previously leased 2 Ford Explorers and with the lease on my Explorer about to end I decided that I wanted to purchase something reliable and smaller than an Explorer since I live in NYC and have to find parking every night. The Murano is perfect because it's roomy inside (It actually has alot more passenger legroom in the backseat than the Explorer) but it's not an overgrown SUV. The Murano has a car like drive and it's easy to handle. I'm so glad I decided to purchase the Murano and it's definitely something that my family can grow into.
Roomy front seats, overall styling, information center and ample legroom in the backseat.
Gas Mileage!!! Only averaging 15 MPG in the city and 16 on the highway but it's better than those other monster SUVs on the road.
