I was in a roll over accident in my Murano and I literally walked away from the accident with out a scratch! God and my 2007 Nissan Murano saved my life. The car was totaled, but I am a walking miracle that seat belts save lives and this car is very safe! I I could, I would attach a picture so you all could see how my Murano looked after the crash. I am in the hunt now to buy another 2007 Nissan Murano!
rear camera, strong body style, rides well, good gas mileage, good sound system
sunroof could open more - do not really feel breeze from it; automatic locks when you shift to drive or begin driving would be nice - car locks when I press the auto lock manually;
I find the power and the CVT to be very adequate. On the freeway at even 80 mph the pickup is outstanding for such a vehicle. The handling is precise and the road feel is excellent. I see no downsides to this vehicle. I get almost 23 mpg at 80 on the freeway, and about 20 around town.
I previously had an '05 then an '07 Pathfinder. Being a single woman I decided to downsize. After looking at the Edge, Mariner & Escape, & X3, Nissan once again won my business. Picked up the 07 just before the 09 came out at that time the 09 had no photos out yet - didn't want to wait and be disappointed with the new one. The 09 is nice but I have to say I love the '07. The CVT at low speeds is a nuance but only a minor one. It's comfortable for long rides, fun to zip around in, tight turning radius, fuel efficient for an SUV. Could use an iPod adapter and heated stearing wheel - the Pathfinders now have that. Over all you'll be pleasantly surprised with this crossover.
HID, backup camera, nav is awesome (Nissan finally got this right - the 05 nav was horrible!), keyless entry system.
Coming from a fully loaded 05 Pathfinder to a fully loaded 07 Murano Bose system could be improved on the Murano. The Pathfinder's was much better in comparison. Bluetooth needed, heated steering wheel would be nice (now offered on P-Finder) CVT is a bit annoying at slow speeds
I get just over 20 mpg which I think is very good for this size car. I have had no problems with it through 32K miles. I got in one accident with it (I was rear ended at highway speeds), and it was very sturdy. I barely felt the impact. So for safety, this car gets an A+ in my book. The acceleration is fairly good for this segment. It feels lighter than it is when accelerating and passing on the highway. The interior is extremely comfortable and have been on several 6+ hour trips without stopping. The interior is also very quiet on the highway which is a very big plus. I think the price is a bit high, but it slots in under an Acura MDX which has a nicer dash appearance.
comfortable seats, good stereo, acceleration, very roomy, good design, reliability, safety, the cvt is very nice.
I would spruce up the dash a bit. Add some wood grain and pad the door sill a bit for an elbow rest on the door.
