The interior and exterior are very attractive. However, I had many problems with the CVT transmission that was making a rattling noise when accelerated which would cost me more than $2,000 to have fixed. The radio went out after just a few months of me having this vehicle. It was not good on gas mileage & the front end was making a squeaking noise. I WILL NOT recommend this vehicle to no one.
I bought this car at Carmax in fishers . The CD player was broken after 3 days it took them 2 Mos to replace. Since I have replaced all front in parts including sway bar , tie rod ends, control arms and have replaced ball joints in right front 7 times . Now car won't start ! It uses oil and has transmission leak all by 80k miles total junk and resale of junk is not good ! BEWARE
I have had some horrible experiences with this vehicle, starting with a bad transmission at 48K miles, ending with a bad radiator and steering rack at 62K miles. The interval between 36K and 65K miles so far has yielded literally close to $8K or more in needed repairs for a vehicle that is driven very lightly and locally. Thank God for the extended warranty else I would have sold this thing years ago!!!
Interior space and comfort
Design a vehicle that is more reliable and wont see major failures until at least 100K miles
My powertrain warranty expired on March 13.
I went to dealership on Jan/Feb 13 & till then I did not have any problem. I went again on 07/13 just after my warranty expired & now dealer says I have following issues and the price for it. Nissan Dealership is not telling me issues with cars until warranty runs out so that they can get money out of me. I have 5 year around 3 month and 49900 mileage on my 2007 Nissan murano SL.

Hall nissan virginia beach suks .transfer case problem is wide spread.
Recall the transfer case issue for this 2007 murano. Its a safety issue
This car was great for the first 5 years.
At 73,000 miles some very expensive and un warranted repairs became necessary.
The drivers seat frame cracked, this necessitated replacement that cost $1300.
The high pressure power steering line also went, this was a $600 repair.
The transfer case associated with the CVT transmission is seeping and requires a rebuild that will cost over $2500.
My Niissan service manager told me that Nissan is fully aware of each of these issues and as has published service bulletins because of the high failure rate.
Unfortunately Nissan would not reimburse me for these repairs.
The extended warranty on the CVC does not cover the transfer case.
