We bought an SV front wheel drive, and traded in a 2005 Toyota Matrix.
With about 3000 miles on it, we've been very impressed.
The interior is very upscale, with excellent fit and finish.
Motor is very strong.
One it's best traits is one of the worst in other vehicles: the CVT transmission.
In most other vehicles I've driven with a CVT, the engine drones and the vehicle is sluggish.
Not so the Murano!
The drivetrain is quiet and this thing takes off!
Plenty of room.
We love the tilt back rear seats and dual sunroof.
Gas mileage has been 25-27 highway.
Ride, power and interior.
Not a huge fan of the front end styling and it's a little pricey.
Also adjustable pedals would be nice for my 5 foot tall wife.
