Nissan Murano: Very good with a couple minor deficiencies.
My Murano has 71,000 miles. It has held up very well, which I think speaks to the reliability and durability of this make/model. The only issue I have encountered is that the climate control system seems a little temperamental; the controls often do not adjust fan speed according to the graduated segments of the knob (you click the fan speed to lower the speed one notch, but it lowers it by three notches or even increases the speed by a couple notches). There might be an electrical short there, but it does not annoy me enough to pay to have it diagnosed. I bought the car because it was bigger and heavier than my previous car, which had been rear-ended. It is noticeably heavier than my previous car - the weight noticeably affects the stopping distance as well as the gas mileage. I definitely feel safer in this vehicle, and I sit up higher also, so a better view. However, because the front windshield slopes dramatically, it is extremely difficult to judge where the right front corner of the vehicle is - you cannot see that area well enough from the driver's seat. The front bumper also is not visible, and it sticks out from the car about a foot or so, making it susceptible to bumping into objects in front if you are not careful. The rear-view camera was an unexpected bonus (I did not have one previously) and it works great. There is plenty of room inside - even the back seat is spacious, and the storage area in back is quite large.
