Take a Long Ride before Buying

2010 Nissan Murano LE 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl CVT)
Don't be smitten by the beautiful good looks of this vehicle, because it is nice to look at. Instead concentrate on the seat comfort, because in the end that will be very important. Not only are the seats very hard but also, for short legged people like my wife and I (under 5'6"), the fact that the front of the seats (both front seats are power-seats) are not allowed to drop down far enough creates a very uncomfortable amount of pressure on the undersides of your legs. The back seats are very hard also. Like all of the newer vehicles the head rests protrude too far forward, and for those (like me) who like to lean back in their seat this creates another uncomfortable intrusion.
Even with those hard seats the ride of this vehicle is very good. The exterior styling is very attractive. Power liftgate, sound-system, engine is quiet and powerful, storage is adequate.
Bottom portion of the front seats should drop closer to the floor. Softer foam in all the seats. Include the lumbar-support and sound-system in the things that change when the memory- button is pushed. Downsize the engine so premium-fuel is not required for maximum performance. Quiet the moon- roof.
