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


Overall, the Murano has its good qualities, but has MORE bad qualities. The CVT transmission, is a plus. I have the SL model so I have a few bells and whistles which work. The AC knobs are kind of funky for the SL line. Nissan should do something with that, if they are competing with the Lexus RX models (I get a lot of looks, because they think it is a lex). Had a few recalls AND a few problems with warranty items (engine/sensor light went off 5 five times AND a faulty fuel part inside tank). Service department finally diagnosed and fixed the problem. Called NMAC, to complain. Gas, Gas, Gas... Maybe 13 or 14 in the city...suppose to be 20. Highway, rode to vegas. Average 22.

Best Features

CVT, Bose stereo (not the speakers though), 18in wheels, keyless entry/start, HID headlights, decent power, Insurance-good rates, Sat. radio already wired.

Worst Features

Make sure the 20 to 25, city/highway is corrected (14-22). Replace funky AC knobs. Change golden rod dash lighting. Better speakers for Bose system. Power open/close for rear hatch (real luxury),
