2003 Nissan in excellent condition.

The car is 15 years old and has the expected issues. Catalytic converter failure, cooling fan failure, thermostat failure and brakes. The car is in great condition with no rattles or shakes. Mileage is good, usually 23 to 24 mpg. I drive it about 40 miles per day to and from work, is interstate traffic. It has power everything.

Easy to drive and comfortable riding in for long distance.

Transmission had a recall which we were not aware of so when we had our transmission oil flush out car would no longer move. We had to have a transmission completely rebuilt, which was a disaster we had to send back for times till they finally got it right. Besides that one episode has been a great mommy/family vehicle.

The Nissan Murano saves you a lot of gas.

The Nissan Murano is a good vehicle because it does not give much problems and it saves you gas. The seats are not leather so the material for the seats are perfect for the summer and winter. There are some things about the Murano that I am not a big fan of like the poor rear visibility and slow steering response.
