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


Following back surgery, I needed to replace my beloved Lexus ES 350 and I finally decided on the 09 Murano. I was leaning towards the Lexus RX 350 but after spending some time with the Murano, I couldn't justify paying an extra $8k - $10k. This was my first Nissan and for a non-luxury brand, I've been very impressed with the car. The build quality is great and the ride is very smooth. The interior is well crafted and very quiet. With the possible exception of the grill, the exterior styling is very handsome, as well. If you're in the market for a crossover/mid-sized SUV (luxury brand or otherwise), the Murano should be near the top of your list.

Best Features

Smooth ride and acceleration (CVT), comfortable seating, backup camera, appearance and styling.

Worst Features

Rear visibility needs to be improved. Gas mileage could be better.
