Could be the best SUV of all
By Al in Denver on


2006 Nissan Murano SL 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl CVT)


The Murano is close to perfection, compared to any other SUV,except for just a couple aggravating things. It drives and handles amazingly well, but rides like a truck. It is fun to drive, has an extremely comfortable and versatile interior with many clever features, but exclude the dashboard from that. The engine and CVT transmission are pure delight... smooth, quiet, powerful, leaves you always feeling like you are in command. And, it is extremely responsive except that it feels a little slow off the line... mostly an illusion. The seats are fantastic, and unlike most Japanese vehicles, you can adjust them to accommodate tall people with long legs. Visibility is very poor to the rear.

Best Features

Sure handling, quiet, smooth, fun to drive, with lots of power. Whether on a dirt road or running 80 in traffic, you feel in total control. Wonderful interior comfort and features, some are positively clever.

Worst Features

Please please give it a more supple ride - it rides like a Durango I once had (NOT a good thing). Looking back, you see a wall where there should be a window, making lane changes aggravating and dangerous. And, fix that adolescent dashboard; it looks like it came from a 1986 Pontiac Grand Prix.
