I was ready to be done with minivans with the kids off to college. Traded sienna for the 2009 Murano with 30K miles. Base AWD model, very clean. Same common complaint about cheap plastic inside with A LOT of rattles and squeaking whenever you hit small ruts and bumps in the road. Ride is firm but plenty of power. very smooth shifting and I am averaging 23.5 mpg. Big loss of cargo meant I had to rent uhaul to carry 50 in TV. blind spots take getting use to. Seats very comfortable. Murano wanders easily on highway so can be tiring. took getting use to. My wife doesn't like driving the Murano saying it is an effort to be smooth with the gas pedal and keep it from wandering out of lane
outstanding in snow, especially up steep hills. never had trouble getting up our steep neighborhood road this winter which is a first for us. great seats with superb lumbar support. love the 6 disk cd changer. Like the high 18 inch tires for clearance and drive height.
interior quality. get rid of the constant squeaks and rattles. this may drive me to trade this in quickly
