I'm a Boomer but love cars. All my vehicles prior to this one have been performance sedans. I bought the Murano because I have a dog and needed a nice little ride spot for my dog Boomer. I drove 6 mid size SUVs before purchasing the Murano. Reasons: Great discount price, very nice build quality, smooth drive train and ride, great handling for an SUU. My previous 2004 Maxima ran 187,000, was totaled, rebuilt and was running great when I traded it it. I love Nissan's.
Keyless entry and push button start, back up camera, heated seats, sound system, ride and handling.
I think the sliding rear seats in the Chevy Equinox are a great idea. I'd like to see that in the Murano. The styling is still a little...off. Not great looking directly at the rear end and the front still looks a little bland to me.
