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


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.

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


Review

I was ready to be done with minivans with the kids off to college. Traded sienna for the 2009 Murano with 30K miles. Base AWD model, very clean. Same common complaint about cheap plastic inside with A LOT of rattles and squeaking whenever you hit small ruts and bumps in the road. Ride is firm but plenty of power. very smooth shifting and I am averaging 23.5 mpg. Big loss of cargo meant I had to rent uhaul to carry 50 in TV. blind spots take getting use to. Seats very comfortable. Murano wanders easily on highway so can be tiring. took getting use to. My wife doesn't like driving the Murano saying it is an effort to be smooth with the gas pedal and keep it from wandering out of lane


Best Features

outstanding in snow, especially up steep hills. never had trouble getting up our steep neighborhood road this winter which is a first for us. great seats with superb lumbar support. love the 6 disk cd changer. Like the high 18 inch tires for clearance and drive height.


Worst Features

interior quality. get rid of the constant squeaks and rattles. this may drive me to trade this in quickly

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


Review

Traded in my loaded 2004 Explorer XLT, and got my loaded Murano SL. This is a fun car to drive, to much fun. Have driven Trans-Am's, Grand Nationals and Chevelle SS. No this is not quite as fast as the last two but this is a very fun car to drive while not attracting to much attention from the man. My wife is right in telling me this car goes to fast for my foot, well over 100 easily! (Got a ticket to prove it, rats!). Be careful, but still loads of fun with the Bose system blasting and sunroof open!


Best Features

OK, leather is very good, sound system is fantastic, sun roof to die for, backup camera is required and acceleration is instant and doesn't lag at all, be aware!


Worst Features

Seats could be more comfortable, just can't find that right position for a 6+ hour drive. Other than that none.

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


Review

I've owned the Murano LE for approximately 26 months and have not had any major problems with it except maintenance. Replacement of the air filter was $75.00 and I could not believe this cost. Tires only lasted 14,500 miles and I could not find replacement 20 inch tires for it. Dealer price for these tires was $350.00 each. Lots of intermittent electrical problems with the tail gate being found open in the morning when I came out of the house, my radio and almost all of my other electronic devices would die on occasion and then come back. Dealer could not find anything. Goes fine in up to 4 inches of snow but after that nothing. Being traded in shortly on an american vehicle.


Best Features

None really


Worst Features

Driver Seats need to be redone. Ground clearance needs to raised. And very pricey for the quality.

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


Review

I have had my Murano for nearly 3 months now and so far, so good. The ride is smooth bordering on luxurious. The gadgets and accommodations are enjoyable (iPod interface, panoramic roof, xenons, sensing wipers, memory seats, trunk dividers/shade). Coming from an Audi this car is not as fun to drive but it is certainly responsive and well built. Looked at the Venza and Santa Fe and the Murano is a much nicer ride than the Hyundai and offers more features than the Venza, with better pricing. Only minor complaints are the gas mileage has been right at 20 mpgs while I was hoping for closer to the 23 number and the in dash cd is just a single. Overall, very pleased but need to practice parking.


Best Features

iPod interface Panoramic Sunroof Memory Seats - includes mirrors and wheel Keyless Entry Trunk divider/shade All wheel drive Blue tooth 20" Rims Xenons


Worst Features

Front console takes up a lot of interior space In dash CD changer needed for Bose/Nav package iPod interface doesn't charge iPod AWD lock function is difficult to use
