I recently switched from an Xterra to the Murano, and although I am still getting used to the change in platform-truck to car platform, I am very pleased. The Murano is an excellent ride, smooth, great pickup and really brings a bit of sporty fun to driving. Not for trucking through the woods, but the LE is well trimmed, leather is comfortable, stereo is excellent. I love driving it.
Powerful and smooth ride, sharp cornering and braking. Excellent finish on the inside, controls easy to use, good interior quality.
Coming from the lumbering Xterra, I could ask for better gas mileage. Rear visibility could be better, but the rear camera is useful. A little cramped and a little short on cargo room.
