Amazing Luxury Quality SUV For A Fraction Of The Luxury Price Tag

Vehicle accelerates and brakes smoothly with a very comfortable interior. Spacious enough to seat 5, including 1 full car seat and 1 in a booster seat. A family member purchased a Mercedes suv the same time I purchased my Nissan and they commented on how nice mine was for a lot less money. The only negative is there are a lot of blind spots due to wider cabin framing around the windshield that took getting used to and making sure I could navigate turns without failing to see someone walking on sidewalk which is why I only gave 4 rather than 5 stars.

2009 Nissan Murano, the best SUV of that year!

I feel very safe in my car. My Nissan Murano is the basic package, but it doesn't need all the bells and whistles. It drives very smooth and handles well. I wish the turn radius was a bit tighter but its good. My car has many options to listen to music, including radio, mp3 jack and CD player with 4 disc changer option. It is very save with driver and passenger airbags. There is a break problem with our model, but the company has already sent out a free fix option form for us regarding that problem. Overall I would stick with the Nissan brand.

Great vehicle if you baby it.

Great vehicle except it has quality issues. The vehicle is fully featured, has tons of options and luxury features but the quality of the build is sub part. For instance, the power tilt steering wheel has cheap plastic gears in it so after about 3 or 4 years of it automatically adjusting each time you turn the car on and off, they break. That seems to be the issue across the board. Very similar issues throughout the entire vehicle and Nissan tries very hard not to cover these problems. So it is a great vehicle if you baby it.
