Nissan Murano, it is not bad.

It is very comfortable and spacious. It runs well and smoothly. The gas mileage is not great. It is maybe 19 miles to the gallon. And maintenance is needed more frequently than I would hope for a modern vehicle. Also expensive upkeep. I enjoy the car overall, but I wouldn't pay more than 12, 000 for this make/model/year. Also, the window design is not great for the rain. But overall, I really love my car. Just bitter because it is not worth what I paid for it.

The Murano has a camera in the back which is very helpful especially in parking lots.

The Murano has been amazing. As long as you get your oil changed and check ups it runs smoothly. I have never had any major problems. I have been very fortunate. I have had my tires changed twice since 2011 but I am driving 40 miles a day 5 days a week. It is really a roomy car for traveling far distances. My teenage children are able to spread out and not irritate each other or me.

2011 model and is still running beautifully.

I love our Nissan! We've had it since 2011 (got it new) and it is been great. Not to many problems and any problems we have had were relatively easy to get fixed. It is a decent sized and feels really comfy. It drives really well and is so quiet. Our car has been through a lot (as it is been my family’s only car for about 5 years now) and it still is a good running car.
