2006 Nissan Murano SL 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl CVT)
Bought this car March 2012 with 83,000 miles. It drives well, the fuel economy is nowhere near the reported numbers. So far, have had a problem with the fuel pump & gas gauge, have had to replace rocker arms on the front twice (extended warranty), replace a front engine mount (warranty) & have had to fix the power steering (dealer said it's a common problem in that year Murano models). Also had to have wheel bearings replaced & replace the air blower (no air conditioning/heat at all). Very disappointed considering I'd driven Toyotas for over 15 years & had been told many good things about the Murano in this general model year.
Backup camera is large & very easy to use. The Bose sound system is magnificent. The self dimming rear-view mirror is wonderful, the heated seats are very nice. The car is roomy enough for my family without being too bulky. It drives like a car but functions like a crossover.
Wheel bearings, rocker arms, engine mounts, seat brackets, sun visors, fuel economy. The car loses its "fun to drive" factor after awhile.
