2003 Nissan Murano SE AWD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl CVT)


It's attractive because of the look & I just like the way it "sits". However just like any relationship looks only go so far. 1st off engine noise & road noise is horrible. Problems: It wasn't responding to the accelerator-had to replace the transmission, replaced alternator, replaced oxygen sensor, replaced intake valve solenoid, window fell down into door-replaced power window assembly, replaced transfer case, heated seat switches replaced, replacing rear window wiper requires special Nissan part, waterproofing & trim falling off all over the car, key replacement = $290 for remote+$150 for microchip key. Total repair costs $4,505. Car is garaged,only driven about 9000 miles per year.

Best Features

Looks, stance, CVT (when working), information screen, seat and pedal adjustments, automatic AWD

Worst Features

Overall quality of mechanical and body parts, center console is not very functional, improve HVAC to rear of vehicle. It would be more useful if it were scrapped and the materials recycled to build a new Honda.
