2009 Nissan Murano SUV SL 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl CVT)

Review

This is the first review that I have written on Edmunds. We have had our 2009 Nissan Murano SL since early 2011. I am not a fan. Here is why: -- Not a comfortable ride. Very stiff and not agile at all. It is like driving a boat. The seats are comfortable but there is something with the suspension. --Doors are very wide. Hard to park in a normal parking spot. -- CVT (Transmission) is wonky. Not responsive and sluggish. -- Acceleration in general is bad. Not responsive.

Review

We bought ours new in 2008 and have used it for about 40,000 miles. We loved it when we bought it and having used it for city as well as highway driving, we have grown even more fond of it. The ride is powerful yet comfortable and reasonably quite. It could've been sportier, but that's just a personal taste. The interiors are great, especially the leather seats and the sound system. There's enough cargo space for a family of 3 to 4. There have been no problems with the vehicle in the last 3 years, except for one of the electronic keys that stopped working. In summary, get one if you like the drive of a car and utility of SUV. It'll be a great ride!

Great car comfortable

Review

We had a 05 Murano, it was definitely roomier than our '08. The drivetrain is a little quirky. But it gets up and moves very very quickly. The sound system in this car is the best I've ever heard for stock. It is very balanced and very powerful. The heated seats are wonderful, the ride seems to only improve with time. The seats are very comfortable for long trips with less fatigue than other cars--I like the upright sitting position. This car is very luxurious, leather, the air conditioning seems to work much better than our '05. Maybe it's the silver exterior vs. navy blue both with the black interior, but that 05 was beastly hot and hard to cool down in summer.

Noises

2009 Nissan Murano SUV SL 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl CVT)

Review

Car has poor acceleration but after take off has plenty of power and fun to drive. Front brakes make metal sound sometimes when turning sharp. Have had multiple noise problems with the interior. Sounds like a constant vibrating noise even when on smooth road and different speeds. Took three times to dealership to fix noise in back because did not make it all the time. Now is making same noise in front upper passenger side. Did not make noise with tech. Will have to try again next time in Tyler. Pretty embarrassing when someone rides with us. Listened to it all the way to Austin the other day. Sunroof hangs up sometimes and has been worked on once. Very frustrating to listen to these noises.

The Murano is a good looking vehicle, and really nice to drive. The seats are comfortable and the drivers compartment fits like a glove. Everything you need to control the car and comforts is within easy reach. I always enjoy driving it.

Quite a luxury ride!

Review

Bought our 2009 Murano SL FWD one year old used with 18K miles on it. Came loaded with leather package and a dvd system. Gotta say, it is obnoxiously luxurious. Power everything! Don't even need to get my keys out of my pocket to start the car! Imagine when the wife can't find the keys in her purse. No longer a problem! The key fob is smart enough to do everything without having to actually use it. Just gotta be near the car to unlock and start the car! Fantastic driving, very quick acceleration and handling. Rear view camera is cool. Only things I don't like is small rear window and fuel usage. Very nice to have power lift gate for groceries!

Review

If you like style then you have to see the Murano, SL, or LE. This SUV is perfect, not too big and not too small. Drives like a car, so smooth on long trips, quality cabin upgrades. I'm warning you if you drive one you will buy one. I did and love it. Got it fully loaded with everything but Navigation on my 2009.

2009 Murano Lease

2009 Nissan Murano SUV SL 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl CVT)

Review

Although Nissan recommends premium fuel, we have always used regular and still get excellent acceleration and 'as stated on the sticker' gas mileage. The computer seems to adjust for the different fuel grade very well. I would have rated interior comfort a 10, but the seats need some fine tuning. Coming from an Altima, the seats feel 'awkward'. The CVT transmission seems flawless. It's so nice not to have annoying shift points!
