2004 Nissan Murano SL Fwd 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl CVT)


Test drove the Highlander and Pilot and Murano, and we fell in love with the Murano. It was the best deal for all the features we wanted. It handled well and we loved the look - a prototype for other crossover SUVs to follow/copy. Unfortunately, car has had some major issues. Front control arms/transverse links went bad- $1000, the driver visor has been replaced and went bad again (design defect)- $350, front motor mount - $500, AC stinks- blows smelly socks air due to poor condensation drainage design, oil cooler seal, premium fuel.

Best Features

Sporty look, wide roomy seating, soft cloth seats, cvt transmission, performance, standard options

Worst Features

Build quality issues mentioned above- window visor, ac, motor mount, better control arm bushings.
