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


Review

Best SUV I have ever owned! Have had it 2 years, and am drooling over the new one! Can't see myself without a Murano ever again. Tranny is great, good gas mileage, hauls my toys very nicely (4 wheelers, snowmobiles, waverunners) and my dogs love it. I average 20 MPG, around 23 on the freeway on trips, with fairly aggresive driving. Highly recommend this vehicle to anyone looking!


Best Features

CVT, CVT, CVT! Also the styling is great, and the engine is just right.


Worst Features

Well, I guess maybe a little beefier stereo, and better gas mileage would always be nice. But low 20s is fairly reasonable for an SUV the way I drive!

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


Review

We have had a Nissan Murano since December of 2005. The car is excellent for road trips. I have taken three teenagers, 15, 18, 19 on several road trips in the past two years and have not heard complaints from the back seat. We find gas mileage on the highway averages around 26mpg, 28 if its really easy driving. Around town we find this to be the perfect urban SUV. INterior is very nice the dash is easy to use and the handling is outstanding. Similar to our old maxima. Cargo space is quite good, see 3 teenagers, 2 adults road trip, everyone brought a suitcase and a couple of coolers. I plan to drive this until the wheels fall off.


Best Features

Handling, gas mileage, interior comfort. Good acceleration.

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.


Best 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.


Best Features

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


Worst Features

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?


Best Features

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


Worst Features

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).
