2015 Nissan Murano: The Most Modern Air Conditioning
July 8, 2015
If you live in a place that gets hot more than a few weeks out of the year, the ventilated seats in the 2015 Nissan Murano deserve consideration. During a toasty weekend here in Southern California — the first official weekend of summer — I used them constantly.
After a while, I realized that I barely needed the normal air-conditioning most of the time. Turns out, having air blowing right onto your backside does a surprisingly good job of keeping you cool.
Of course the seats probably wouldn't feel so cool if the rest of the cabin was soaked in heat. The seat vents can only do so much. But the combination of cooled seats and the air-conditioning on its lowest setting makes for a pleasant cabin in anything but the hottest of conditions.
If they have a drawback, it's the noise. These are easily some of the nosiest ventilated seats I've heard. It's not an annoying racket, but enough to make you wonder if you left the main vents open. If you can live with that, you'll be glad to have them.
