Bought my 2011 used with 27,000 mi. Have 42,000 now. Replaced our 2001 Infiniti Qx4, which we loved. The Murano is not the same, but close. Very happy with the ride, looks, reliability so far (except we had a popping noise in the back which we finally tracked to the woofer in the radio...rather than replace the radio for $800, we had the woofer disconnected for $120.) Mileage is ok...20 overall. Solid, no rattles, firm yet comfy ride. We did replace the battery early on as the car was dead three times in 2 weeks. Finally realized that I, and my grandson, were leAving the ignition on "accessory".....BAD design.....if you hit the ignition button by mistake twice when you shut off the car, it goes to "accessory" with no indication whatsoever on the dash...no light or warning bell.......I am very careful, and have to tell everyone who borrows the vehicle to be sure and just pop the ignition button ONCE when they are shutting it off...!!!!! I cannot believe the engineers at Nissan didnt catch this. I did notice another reviewer here noted he had to replace his battery twice....this may have been the culprit. I'll take keys anyday vs this key less stuff.
5/1/17--update--------Now have 53000 mi. on it. No issues, still like it, BUT (and this likely won't concern most, but it's been the reason I have been stranded three times since last review. I am hard of hearing, and do not hear the "warning" when I leave the vehicle in "assessory" when I get out. The battery goes dead within two hours. Two complains....why doesn't the system just shut down like my wife's LaCrosse to avoid a dead battery,( and whose car I hear every warning, buzz, chime etc.) .Two, why not make the warning as annoying and low pitched for us old guys who can't hear. These reasons alone will likely keep me from buying another Murano, unless I can hear the chimes. I recognize that I am part idiot for not making sure the vehicle is OFF when I get out. If anyone has a fix for this, please chime in.
As much as I have enjoyed my 2011 Murano in many wayw, I cannot forgive the glaring problem of the engineering of the front seats. It is a problem that obviously gets chuckles and is not take seriously, but when I buy my next car, it will be the first thing I test. Here is the problem. If you drop something out of your pocket while sitting in the front seat.... INCLUDING YOUR KEY.... it is lost. forget it. You cannot reach a hand down from any angle to get it back. The engineers of the seats of this car have my life-long and ever after enduring hatred. They are scum. That is my review, and that is the reason I will never buy another Nissan.
