Very happy with my decision to get the Murano.
It came down to the Nissan or the Ford Edge.
The Edge had a few more "gee whiz" features that were cool, but when it came to the most important thing, how does the car drive, the Murano won hands down.
Super smooth transmission, plenty of power, and decent gas mileage for and SUV.
TONS of leg room space for rear passengers.
Gripes are few, rear visibility is a little difficult (the back up camera helps a lot).
I'm also not a huge fan of the radio controls but it's not that big of a deal.
If you are looking for an SUV in the 30-35K range make sure Murano is on your list!
