I worked for Nissan from 03-05, and during that time owned a 04 Maxima SE with all the bells and whistles. Drove the Murano back then and fell in love, just had to wait till my lease was up, boy am I happy. Picked up a SL AWD, with touring package, all I can say is WOW. Im a huge fan of the styling, amazed with the color display and reverse camera (didnt know it had it till I picked it up). The ride is great; gas mileage so far is nearly identical to my maxima. And the Lumbar is so much better then the maxima. Im still in the industry, working for a Cadillac dealer, so I get the chance to see and drive a lot of vehicles. Muranos the best!!
Functional lumbar support, CVT transmission, the Color display and Reverse camera! L.E.D taillights are also great! The Intelligent key is also super nice feature. Everything about the Murano is my favorite feature
Change to the pushbutton start like the new Altimas, Heated steering wheel like in the Maximas DPP, Exhaust note like the Infinity FX. Mostly minor things, just features I think would make the Murano even better.
