Guess I expected more, not a nightmare
By dopplerdavetn on


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


Bought this car March 2012 with 83,000 miles. It drives well, the fuel economy is nowhere near the reported numbers. So far, have had a problem with the fuel pump & gas gauge, have had to replace rocker arms on the front twice (extended warranty), replace a front engine mount (warranty) & have had to fix the power steering (dealer said it's a common problem in that year Murano models). Also had to have wheel bearings replaced & replace the air blower (no air conditioning/heat at all). Very disappointed considering I'd driven Toyotas for over 15 years & had been told many good things about the Murano in this general model year.

Update 2016: I ended up trading the car in. The constant maintenance got to be too expensive. It needed a new muffler, the right side calipers seized, it needed yet another set of control arms & it honestly was not enjoyable to drive because I always wondered when the next repair bill would come. Every time something needed fixed it was at least $1,000! The experience was so bad that I won't ever consider another Nissan product again.
