The CVT gives a smooth and powerful acceleration. I've never had any problem passing another vehicle quickly. The SE was rated as giving a choppy ride due to the CVT, but I don't feel it that way. It's not obvious at all when the transmission changes gears.
We travel alot and have over 65,000 miles on our 2007.
Fully reclining front seat allows the passenger to sleep comfortably on long trips.
We checked out many comparable models and the back seat is as comfortable as the front seat, so if you have other passengers they'll appreciate it!
I LOVE the fob and it would be hard to go back to using a key.
Have had our 2007 Murano for almost 3 1/2 years and have had 0 problems with it and have enjoyed it thoroughly during this time. It is fun to drive (for an SUV), handles exceptionally well, and has fairly good fuel economy for an SUV/crossover.
Intelligent Key - have looked for this feature from other manufacturers and find it very difficult to come by or only in extremely high-end / luxury models
The only things I've missed which were subsequently added to later models were bluetooth and ipod integration
This vehicle has performed flawlessly for 44,000 miles thus far. It has been taken to the dealer only for routine servicing. No deficiencies! The Murano is smooth, comfortable, right sized and rather economical for its size and capabilities. It handles mountain driving pleasurably. The reclining rear seats and ample luggage space make it a perfect long-distance cruiser for four full-sized adults. The original tires are becoming due for replacement soon at about 45,000 miles. All in all, the Murano has been a perfect vehicle for me and my family.
Leather seats, simple dash, backup camera, auto windows, BOSE sound system. Features seem to be very carefully thought out and intuitively placed. The Murano's quality is unsurpassed.
The 07 Nissan Nurano is the perfect SUV. It is very versatile, comfortable, stylish and fun to drive. It has everything that I need and like in a vehicle. I traded an Acura TL for this. I loved the Acura and thought why am I trading for the Murano. Now I know why. I look forward to buying my next Murano, it will be interesting to see how it changes in the coming years.
