What was I thinking?

2005 Nissan Murano SL Fwd 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl CVT)
I traded my lovely trouble free Honda Accord for this 2005 Murano SL with 82k miles.
Was told the previous owner babied this vehicle.
The leather is practically perfect so I was like ok.
Week 1--the battery dies.
I replaced a 2005 Nissan Factory battery in 2013!! With a J-05 code on it.
Even after I replaced the battery the car wouldnt start.
I tell the dealer I bought it from they cant look at it until monday.
I finally get it started but I smell gas just briefly.
I make it to dealer only to have the service guy tell me he cant look at it.
I drive back and my gas level depletes pretty quickly. Glad I made it home.
I ended up walking to work as I am now out of gas.
love the room between the lift gate and the back seat, love how high I sit. overall love the vehicle just not the issues.
Make sure all systems respond immediately upon replacing battery.
Having the fuel delivery system delay cost me 2 hours of vacation time at work so I could walk home in safety.
