Car averages 15 mpg and has numerous problems with door locks failing and most notably the driver seat forward and reverse motor. Because of the common failure of this 2 x 4" 12 volt motor owners must shell out up to $1,800 to replace the whole assembly. I requested the old parts and tested each of the three motors and found the forward/reverse motor defective. It took 10 minutes to remove this motor to look inside; no apparent damage but a poor ohms reading and no reaction to adding power to the motor. Nissan does not sell this motor as an OEM part and you rarely see a used on for sale. This is a big drawback for the Nissan Murano as you never know when the seat will fail or the power locks which cost $1,200 to have the dealer repair. Steer clear and look at a reliable Ford or Chevy.
@ weeks later, the brake master cylinder goes bad, Diagnosed by independent garage that master cylinder was defective. Took to Atlanta's Regal Nissan and requested estimate to replace master cylinder. Two ho hear an acute perception of very obvioustours later informed no mastercylinders are available; charged $60
If you google for nissan problems in general or by year, you will find many frustrated owners; many who promise to never own another Nissan. [non permissible content removed]
The interior and exterior are very attractive. However, I had many problems with the CVT transmission that was making a rattling noise when accelerated which would cost me more than $2,000 to have fixed. The radio went out after just a few months of me having this vehicle. It was not good on gas mileage & the front end was making a squeaking noise. I WILL NOT recommend this vehicle to no one.
I bought this car at Carmax in fishers . The CD player was broken after 3 days it took them 2 Mos to replace. Since I have replaced all front in parts including sway bar , tie rod ends, control arms and have replaced ball joints in right front 7 times . Now car won't start ! It uses oil and has transmission leak all by 80k miles total junk and resale of junk is not good ! BEWARE

I have had some horrible experiences with this vehicle, starting with a bad transmission at 48K miles, ending with a bad radiator and steering rack at 62K miles. The interval between 36K and 65K miles so far has yielded literally close to $8K or more in needed repairs for a vehicle that is driven very lightly and locally. Thank God for the extended warranty else I would have sold this thing years ago!!!
Interior space and comfort
Design a vehicle that is more reliable and wont see major failures until at least 100K miles
