I love my 2005 Murano!
Great gas milage (19 city/22 highway)- 7000 miles between oil changes (full syn).
Interior is extremely roomy with lots of little storage places. Hieght adjustable seat-belt, great for us shorter people.
Sound system is loud and clear without disturbing the neighbors. The auto speed/volume leveler is fabuous!
Maneuvers like a car, good control, no problem parking in tight spots (doors are light so they don't swing into the next parked car). The CVT is really nice and the engine is powerful but as quiet as a small car. Good pick up, no problem cutting in and out of traffic lanes in stop and go traffic.
I love the big tires/wheels - I don't even have to slow down over the 3 different sets of railroad tracks I cross everyday.
This SUV is a little bit pricy partially because of the look, but then again I felt it was worth it simply for the intimidation factor - the Murano looks mean coming at you on the road, and driving in Atlanta traffic, anything to make the little cars move out of the way is a big plus. Besides, looks are as much a part of a vehicle's value as anything else and the Murano looks classy.
I have the squeeky break problem, but only when I back up down-hill out of the garage in the morning. Then again so does our Trans-am and Sierra. My assessment - this is a use issue, not a defect.
I do wish there was a way to cut down on some of the road/wind noise when I travel on the highway (gets a little loud around 70-75 mph depending on road surface) - that is, besides turning the radio up.
I also wish there were more accessories available. My local dealership is also hit or miss with service.
The roof is also a pain to hand-wax/buff if you are short, but I can't really blame that on the vehicle now can I?
