Nissan Murano, A Safe, Reliable, Family Friendly SUV.
2004 Nissan Murano SL
My family has owned this car for about 4 years and it was used when we bought it. It's great on gas, I drive over 252 miles a week currently and only have to get gas once a week. When I'm driving to my University (10 min from where I stay) I only fill up the tank every two weeks. The interior is nice and luxurious. The Bose sound system has a great base. Unfortunately the grill has crinkled over time and flecks of paint have came off the hood, so I need to fix that. The grill is a common problem I've heard. The leather on the seats is cracking but it probably wasn't properly taken care of. I feel safe in my vehicle and that it is very reliable. The only problem I had was the battery died about a year ago, and needed replaced, but nothing major since then has happened. This car offers enough space for four people and has a large trunk for storage, the back seats also fold down for additional space. The driver and passenger seat are equipped with warmers which is wonderful for the winter time. The carpet cleans easily. My favorite aspect is the sun roof that can open partially or full to allow sunlight and air to flow in. There is no Bluetooth as it is a 2004, but you could buy a adapter that plugs into where cassette tapes go and listen to music on your phone that way. This is a great family car and first car for new drivers.
