2005 Nissan Murano S AWD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl CVT)


Review

Bought our new Nissan Murano S AWD about 3 weeks ago. Came with the power seat package and few other extra's for $27k. We test drove several other SUV's including the Liberty, Durango, Tribeca, Explorer, 4 runner, etc and although the Murano offers no third row, it is very comfortable, easily outhandles all of the other SUV's by a wide margin, offer seamless and very strong acceleration with the superb CVT transmission and gets respectable mpg. Currently which over the first 1k miles is at 22mpg. Not bad for a 250hp SUV. Although this SUV is not made for off road activity, it's AWD is well suited for slick/wet roads. Best vehicle I have personally owned to date.


Best Features

Strong acceleration, well thought out interior, good mpg for SUV, excellent handling and elegant exterior design.


Worst Features

None.

2005 Nissan Murano S Fwd 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl CVT)


Review

When I decided I wanted to buy an SUV I was stuck beween the Pilot and Murano. I decided to buy the murano because of both the gas milage and the standard features. The murano has tons of standard features that most other SUV do not offer in their base model. Such as alloy wheels and the computer system, dual air, wrapped steering wheel and over sized 18" tires. I love the way it drives, I feel like I am back in my old Altima. Its a SUV with class! I feel like I am driving a very expensive vehicle not a base model Nissan. The CVT transmission drives great, just wish it gave a little more power!


Best Features

Standard 18" alloy wheels and the smooth CVT transmission.


Worst Features

The roach looking mast attena needs to be internal.

2005 Nissan Murano SE AWD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl CVT)


Review

We love our Murano, because of it's reliability and strong engine. We would buy another one if they would change the seat design. After long drives, it becomes very uncomfortable. Other than that, it is a great car for a family, couple or single.


Best Features

Durability and reliability.


Worst Features

Interior seat design.
