2006 Nissan Murano SUV SE 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl CVT)


Review

This is an impressive SUV for its value. I was planing to buy Benz or BMW but I am glad I kept my 20,000 bucks in my pocket and got more from my Murano than those vehicles offer. Excellent comfort, service and performance. It sticks to the ground on snowy and icy road conditions. Interior design is very attractive and CVT shift is the most interesting feature you can experience and only at Nissan vehicles. I am glad that I test drove this vehicle that day and bought it. Extremely recommended.


Favorite Features

CVT, interior design, performance on slippery road conditions esp. on snow and ice, reliability

2006 Nissan Murano SUV SL 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl CVT)


Review

What can I say, before buying the Murano, I've test driven the RX 350, FX35 and the Pilot. I've got about 11k miles on it already, and so far, so good! I get about 19-21 mpg mostly city driving, and it handles great. The 3.5 award winning engine is great and easy maint.


Favorite Features

Nav, Bose, backup cam., memory seats & mirrors, intelli key!!


Suggested Improvements

Need to work on the interior. Not impressive at all. Lack of visibility in the rear, a more responsive CVT.

2006 Nissan Murano SUV SE 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl CVT)


Review

Great styling and general performance. Gas mileage is much less than similar cars of this size that I have owned. The car is solid, but any packages that I place in the car rattle like crazy. This is the only car where I have experienced this phenomenon. It detracts immensely from the overall driving experience. Is there that much difference in the ride of an SL versus my SE?


Favorite Features

Styling, performance, smooth shifting with CV transmission. No major mechanical issues in 30,000 miles.


Suggested Improvements

Better gas mileage, smoother ride, door locks that activate when you place the transmission in DRIVE or PARK (even my cheap Beetle has this feature).

2006 Nissan Murano SUV SL 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl CVT)


Review

I just bought my Murano used a month ago from a private party. It only had 8,100 miles on it (2006). I looked for a year and got a great price for an SL in perfect condition. I love driving this car. It's zippy, and fun. The Bose stereo system sounds great for most, if you're really into your music you might be a little disappointed. The suspension is a little soft on the SL model if you really like to put the car through the turns. But overall I'm very happy with the car!! I love the interior and exterior lines.


Favorite Features

I love the looks and styling of this car. Bose stereo system, back seats recline slightly, back up camera is awesome as well!


Suggested Improvements

An EQ for the stereo system. Improved suspension for performance driving (OK, I'm really picky). The car is great otherwise!!

Review

Most of the time I love my Murano. However, when I have problems it seems to take multiple visits to the dealer to cure them. It took a year to solve a creak in the sun visors. I've made at least 4 visits for a creaking driver's door. Any road imperfections make it creak and it is embarassing when you have others in the vehicle. The door panel has to be replaced. Cruise control will occasionally not respond when I tap the brake pedal have to slam on the brakes or turn off cruise control. The dealer just replaced the master cylinder hoping that will cure the problem So doI! Nissan should spend more money on the interior. It feels like all the money was spent on exterior design.


Favorite Features

Exterior styling, intelligent key, back-up camera, Bose stereo, fold down rear seats.


Suggested Improvements

Some choice in replacement tires. Better quality of interior materials.
