Mostly good some glitches needs software update

2006 Nissan Murano

Love backup camera. I back into parking spaces so I can exit safely and camera makes that easy. Had lots of trouble with power steering leaks but finally fixed after 6 times in shop. Gas mileage terrible at 85-95 mph on interstate like 200-250 miles per tank but at 62-67 mph I get nearly 500 miles per tank Had front door windows open themselves half dozen times last year both to identical halfway point when car is parked and locked. Screen display needs more features which could be added via software update. Especially Bluetooth which is fine for phone calls but won’t play music from phone and grabs text dictation from phone and garbles all words into gibberish then can’t hang up the dictation without making a dummy phone call and hanging that up. Roof rack only has bars running front to back with no cross bars so I can’t put anything up there. I got it used with 145,000 miles so I don’t know if they were there originally. It drives nice. Lots of power when I need it. Don’t know it’s max speed. Haven’t been above 125. Maneuvers well at all speeds. Added little round stick on wide angle mirrors from the dollar store which took care of blind spots for lane changes It’s been reliable in the 30,000 miles I’ve driven it except for that power steering leak I mentioned. It was easy to change brake pads and I replaced the battery and changed oil and had to replace fuel level sensor under rear seat. It was saying half tank when I filled it and empty 100 miles later after only using 6 of the 21 gallons. I took seat out and bought sensor at parts store and a repair shop installed it for $50 then I put seat back in. Now my gas gauge is working again

The Murano: a few great features (rear camera, good speakers) with some cons

2006 Nissan Murano SE

Since my car is a bit dated (2006), it does not have an auxiliary cord for me to connect my phone to. So, I have to use an adapter that overrides a blank radio station. These adapters wear out/break over time, and it's difficult to use while driving long distances since radio stations change. It's a bit of a hassle, and I hate how unreliable these adapters can be. I really wish my car had an auxiliary port already built in. Also, the car's gas mileage is subpar - I believe it's about 17-18 mpg. Finally, ever since I've gotten the car, I've had issues filling my gas tank. When I leave the gas pump filling unattended, it often stops early or will not stay down. It's like there's an air bubble inside the tank that falsely says it's full when it's not. This has left me leaving the gas station with a not entirely filled tank of gas or the inconvenience of having to manually hold the pump down and guess when it's full.

Reliable and Family Approved SUV, With Remote Start!

2006 Nissan Murano SL

I bought my Murano used from a friend in 2018. I have not had too many problems with the vehicle since I purchased it. I've had to replace a few minor parts such as windshield wipers and a fuse or two. It gets fantastic gas mileage on the highway but not so much in town. It's very reliable which was needed since it's a family car. It's also very comfortable on long car trips for the kids and me as well. The kids enjoy the cup holder and I tend to enjoy the extra space it puts between them. It has a remote start feature that I enjoy especially in the winter months living here in Montana. It also has GPS and automatic headlights which are nice as well. If I could change something I would add probably a bigger gas tank.
