2009 Nissan Murano LE 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl CVT)


Review

Great overall vehicle. The interior styling and comfort are excellent. The stylish exterior is very nice. Sound system and controls are top of the line (except the driver will never hear the 2 subwoofers in the rear). I love the auto headlights and wipers! The 160 MPH speedometer is counter productive - the distance from 50 to 60 mph is like a centimeter, making it hard to pin point 55 mph. The low end acceleration is WEAK. Like many car magazine tests, 0-60 cannot be reached in 8 seconds (more like 9.5 to 10). Mileage is 16 MPG for me driving mostly city. Great vehicle if you can accept the poor acceleration and mileage.


Best Features

Style inside and out Sound system with 2 subwoofers Auto Headlights and wipers Keyless system


Worst Features

Use 120 MPH speedo Either better mileage or better acceleration.

2009 Nissan Murano SL 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl CVT)


Review

Love my Murano! Had a Rogue, better gas mileage but rougher ride. Have 3 friends who bought one on my recommendation.


Best Features

Ride, Classy Style


Worst Features

Somewhat hard to see over the headrest in the back seat. Would like to be able to see better out the back glass.

2009 Nissan Murano S 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl CVT)


Review

Just purchased my used 09 Murano with 29k miles on it. Dealer installed leather heated seats and sunroof.I am getting 23 MPG with mostly highway driving. 3.5 L engine is very fast and car gives a smooth ride on highway and over bumps. Black Interior looks really sharp and is nicely laid out, really like the orange lighted gauges.Stereo system provides clear sound and cranks nicely. I love driving this car and it is a head-turner!


Best Features

Leather Heated Seats are very comfortable. Sunroof has a vent setting and multiple open positions. Car is very quick and fast on highway but still gets good gas mileage. Interior feels roomy. Giant Glove box that can hold a laptop.


Worst Features

Better Tires, prefer Goodyear over Bridgestone. Better quality chrome on tail pipes (really nitpicking!) Make fog lights standard.

2009 Nissan Murano S 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl CVT)


Review

Forget the rest of the pack and go for the best! The Nissan Murano is the perfect vehicle for all around driving. This is my second Murano. The first was a leased 2006, loaded with moon roof and leather. I loved it so much that I purchased the 2009. The problem with the Murano is that you will enjoy driving it so much that you will exceed your lease limits. So go and buy one! This is a road trip waiting to happen. I have driven in blinding snowstorms from Buffalo, NY, through the mountains of West Virginia, and onto the beach at St Simons, Georgia. This vehicle will take you up and down hills, through unploughed roads, and pass 18 wheelers like a bullet. It is fast. It is the perfect SUV!


Best Features

CVT Transmission gives smooth ride and outstanding gas mileage. This vehicle looks good. I replaced the crappy Bridgestone stock tires with BF Goodrich and the road grip and traction is vastly improved! I enjoy the smooth ride, the great acceleration, and the fact that nothing has ever broken, ever!


Worst Features

Better stock tires would improve traction. A speedometer disconnect button would help those of us who enjoy driving but do not want to count up the miles.

Review

Although Nissan recommends premium fuel, we have always used regular and still get excellent acceleration and 'as stated on the sticker' gas mileage. The computer seems to adjust for the different fuel grade very well. I would have rated interior comfort a 10, but the seats need some fine tuning. Coming from an Altima, the seats feel 'awkward'. The CVT transmission seems flawless. It's so nice not to have annoying shift points!


Best Features

XM radio CVT transmission Adjustable headlights Pop-up grocery bag bin Auto wipers Auto headlights Seat heaters Dual-zone A/C controls


Worst Features

The LE model needs to have a multimedia card slot (SD) without upgrading to the LE package.
