The one thing that is lacking is the stereo. It has no bass at all. Big disappointment.

If you purchase the 2016 Murano with the Technology package be aware that there are NO beeping sensors on this vehicle. In other words, although you have a front and back camera, the vehicle will not make a beep sound if you are starting to get too close to a stationary item. What a disappointment given that these beep sensors have been around since dinosaurs.

Sweet Silver Murano

Edmunds Price Promise is the way to go removes haggling quite a bit but some negotiating still for dealer add-on's. The visibility to judge the front corners of the vehicle is poor due to the styling humps in the front hood. Love everything else about the Murano styling is great and feels like it will remain relevant for years! This has to be one of the best value for what you get in a mid size SUV bar none.

Had the Murano four weeks. Handles great. Missing a couple interior displays like direction. Need to scroll through screen to locate it. Edge has a lot more little conveniences that I miss.

Excellent Choice

This is my second Murano. They are extremely comfortable and I would include it as a luxury vehicle. Getting in and out is so easy if you have a bad back such as I do, and I love the captain bucket chairs! The Bluetooth is much improved since my 2009 LE. It is much more comfortable than the Lexus. There are really only a couple of improvements that I would suggest. The safety warning signals could be a little louder and the around town gas mileage is not very good but great on the highway. I would not consider any other SUV in this price range as it is superior to all others.

I've owned my Murano for 2 months. I've never owned a Nissan before but I liked the size of the back seat in the Murano since I have 2 very tall teenage boys and I wanted to make sure they fit comfortably. The front seats are also very comfortable and it is a nice ride. But there is one very annoying issue. When my kids sit in the back, they inevitably step on my seat belt thereby tightening it on me while I am driving! The front seat belts come out of the floor and there is no protection around them. At the very least, this is an EXTREMELY poor design and quite possibly a safety issue. I'm also disappointed that I've already gotten recalls on the airbags and brakes. Nissan is not doing a good job building my confidence in them, this may be my first and last Nissan purchase.

Finally Happy A Year Late

I was shopping a car for myself a year ago and accidently came across Murano which was even on my radar screen before that day. I was so attracted by the comfort and finish of the interior / seats that I made a kind of rush decision and bought Murano instead. The car has run smooth for 18,000 miles and comfortable like piloting a spaceship, but for a year, I have had a kind of regret for my rush decision not my original plan. I am shopping a car for wife now and test drove a BMW 535 xDrive (my wife's choice). I was so surprised when I set in the BMW. The sale person saw the surprise on my face and mistaken that I was awed by BMW. I was actually stunned by how primitive and noise its interior feels and how cumbersome its controls ( not touch screen??). If this is what BMW can offer, I am very happy with my Murano now, Finally, A year later.

Brief thoughts on my Murano

This Murano replaced a 2006 Honda Odyssey, and while I thought the Odyssey was comfortable and an OK ride, even in the rear, this Murano beats it hands-down. The gas mileage, combined with the size of the gas tank, gives about 425 mile endurance/tank, and the seats and driver position make that distance almost effortless. The interior quality and trim, along with the options and tech, make this vehicle close to a luxury vehicle. We now have about 3,000 miles on it, and are still discovering things (primarily tech related) that the vehicle does. Initially, it took me some time to get used to the somewhat reduced visibility caused by the high seat backs and the rear pillars, but have discovered that it's a non-issue. I have not experienced the emergency braking assistance, but the blind spot alerts and the cross-traffic warning system are a great addition to the vehicle. My wife loves the intelligent cruise control; I haven't decided on that feature yet. I wish there was an audible indication when it activates and slows down the vehicle's speed; it is so subtle that I have looked down to realize that we are traveling 10 mph below the limit. :D All in all, I love the Murano and think it's a great value!

Best car I have owned so far.

2016 Nissan Murano Brake Failure after a month

Just purchased my 2016 Murano on September 2016. Had the car for about a month and 800 miles. Yesterday morning the brakes failed as my wife was pulling out of our driveway. Nearly backed into a light pole and crashed into our neighbors car. She had to place the car into drive while it was still backing up, then had to place the car into neutral when it started going forward. Brake pedal did not respond and was near the floor. Contacted Nissan consumer affairs about the issue and had the car towed to my dealer. Nissan consumer affair advised me that there wasn't any brake related recalls for my car. A quick internet search proved that to be incorrect. Nissan, not wise to lie to your customers. Luckily this happened near our driveway in a residential neighborhood, with no kids in the car because I dropped the kids off at school in my car this morning. Had this been at a busy intersection, thing could have turned out really bad. Any Nissan executives reading this post, take a moment and think, what if this was your family in your product. Get the issue resolved before it claims innocent lives. Feel free to reach out to me. Find my contact information on the Nissan Consumer Affairs case #24317348. I will be posting my story on every Nissan forum and consumer complaint site I can think of.

HAVE OWNED HONDA'S FOR 30 YEARS. I have driven Nissans such as the Altima and Maxima and was always very impressed with the pickup, the way the cars handled, the interiors, the finishes and the beauty of the cars. Well, It was time to by a new vehicle after owning my last Honda for 18 years (and will NEVER buy a Honda again when the perfectly maintained car blew its engine at 92K miles and Honda would do nothing, except loose a customer FOREVER) and then I saw the resigned Murano. This car sent be right over the top. I am not a car nut but then I saw this and it was instant love. The test drive was perfect. great on the street, terrific pickup with no lag, smooth as silk cornering ability plus the sexiest of both interiors AND exteriors. People have been stopping my and asking what car is that. I scream 'Its the new Nissan Murano and you have to buy one." It is so luxurious on the inside pickups like a dream and corners on rails, so you can make it whatever you want, a Sport SUV or one that fits your driving style. Personally pickup without lag is extremely important to me as are making smooth turns with a hard turn of the steering wheel. This vehicle delivers on both and so much more. Hey this LA where you are driving next to cars out there for 100K to 2M and this car with its 20 inch rims and flashy new design still have people looking so the redesign is also beautiful. The one criticism I don't understand it cargo space. Mine has a ton when my rear seats are down. I recently put in enough planning material for a 40' hedge so I am not sure what the critics are talking about. When the seat are up, there is still plenty of room for all the sporting gear, groceries, etc. This car is a winner. It is a 5/5 and worth every penny. It is the best car I have ever owned and one of the best cars I have ever driven in.

Local Nisson Poughkeepsie dealer's attitude was disinterest: wife wanted to test drive at a local, large, free from traffic mall's back lot but salesman insisted he could not go there. So she really couldn't evaluate if the car was for her. Local Mazda dealer had no such problem so that is what we bought.

I struggled with this decision long and hard. I like the styling of both cars. Both cars have their positives and negatives. First off, I didn't need or want 3rd row seating, so if this is a deal breaker, go with the Mazda. After owning a few SUV's and being a home owner, I can never go back to owning a sedan. To start I traded a Lexus 2010 RX 350. A wonderful car with no complaints. It is just too generic and boring. I had a silver one and it is one of the most common SUV models I see and there is nothing exciting or exceptional. Just good old fashion reliability. Nothing wrong with that. I just got bored after 5 years. I started looking at other make and models and noticed that most are variations of the same theme. From the Kia, to the Audi to the Lexus, they all just seem very similar. I even rented a BMW X-5 and an Audi Q5. Ridiculously complicated. I had to stop and pull over in the beemer to put the windshield wipers on. Come on! And to put the shifter in reverse you push it forward! And forget about using the entertainment system. Moving on, I wanted a vehicle that was both style and comfort, economical and practical. Something I thought was impossible. I was not going spend upwards of $50,000 on a car. Enter the Murano. Outstanding style. Easily the most comfortable drivers seat ever. The Mazda was quickly ruled out when I found it only had 6 way seats. The "zero gravity" seats in the Murano are the best I have experienced. There are missing features that I miss from the RX, such as automatic dimming headlights and the rain sensor windshield wipers found in the Mazda. But the trade off is the heated steering wheel ( I live in the cold northeast) and the panorama sun roof. Also the cooled seats cause it also gets hot up here. I also think the Murano is by far the best looking SUV out there. It is only missing the status branding of the Lexus or the BMW. That is important to some but not to me. I would rather have the money in the bank. Otherwise, I love the CVT transmission, but I am not a driving nut and need for speed testosterone guy. I want safe and quick acceleration when needed. But I prefer comfort and gas economy over acceleration. I average 23.3 overall and get 30-31 MPG on the highway. For a SUV with all wheel drive and 6 cylinder this is outstanding. The entertainment is Bose and is awesome. The GPS is typical; almost useless, but I have had that with every in car with GPS. I just use google maps and am done with it. The ride is smooth and quiet. Some have said the 20" wheels do not handle to bumps well, but I disagree. In New England the roads are terrible from winter frost heaves and the large wheels just seem to glide over them. Much much better than the Lexus. My complaints are: The Nissan Apps are useless. They would be better to have eliminated them rather than release something that just doesn't work. But overall, who cares. Also it takes just too long for the entertainment system to read connect to the iphone, that I can't listen to the radio for minutes when starting the car. Another very annoying feature is the stupid constant dinging when the car is in the on position and driver's door is open. Say you want to listen to the radio in a parking area and leave the driver's door open. I don't know how to shut this feature off and car manufacturers should stop trying to appease the dumb downed idiots. With keyless entry it is impossible to lock the keys in the car, so let me listen to the radio with the doors open. So to summarize, I love the vehicle, the style, the ride and the features. I do not believe there is a better car for the money than the Murano. If you are struggling with the decision, take each for an extended test drive and notice the seating comfort between the two. I am not looking back. There is nothing else out there that compares.

Great SUV

I bought a 2016 Murano SL last week and I love it! It has all the bells and whistles, quiet, bose stereo system, comfortable. However, I'm not jazzed about the gas mileage, but I knew it would not be as good as my Acura TSX. This is my first Nissan and I'm pleasantly surprised. I highly recommend this SUV.

So far its been pretty perfect. Our other vehicle is feeling lonesome as we tend to drive the Murano for most non-cargo trips. Vehicle takes a little time to get used too - especially when parking, but that may be because we are used to a larger, higher-standing SUV; once you figure out when/where how to maneuver everything is good. Safety features - included blind-spot detection, all-around camera views are great, but our favorite so far is the distance-sensing cruise control as it lets us pay more attention to the crazy vehicles than to the speedometer. Cargo area is pretty good for most standard things - shopping for groceries for example, and rear seats can be easily lowered (and stood up) when necessary. No that it really matters, but this car has the largest glove compartment we have ever seen and we sometimes have to really look to find an object we have placed in their.

Love my Murano!!

I was in between getting a Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited, which I previously had, or the Murano SV. Suffice it to say that I am so happy I went with the Murano!!! This is one of the most luxurious automobile I have ever owned. The way it handles the road is outstanding, not to mention the sleek exterior. The interior is so comfortable & roomy. The drivers seat cradles your body in a way that is so comfortable & with the lumbar setting it's like a dream. The updated electronics with the Navigation System, Bluetooth, Bose system, Instrument panel, etc. is all so high tech. I'm still learning how to work it all & discover something new each day. By far this is one of the best automobiles I have ever owned. I highly recommend the Murrano SV!

Only had the car about 5 weeks and the only complaint so far is that after you have dropped the rear seats for cargo or dog space, they return by motors. The problem is that the headrest will not permit them to come back up without moving the front seat backs or the whole front seat. I called the dealer and they said it was just the way it was manufactured and we could remove the rear headrest. Not. They are hard to straighten manually (I assume because of the motors).

Stylish, Good performance and Practical

The Murano handles well, the ride is quiet and comfortable. This mid-size SUV is perfect for my needs. Cargo space is easy to load - from grocery shopping bags to golf clubs and luggage on a recent trip.

I have owned Murano's since 2007, which was my favorite. The new platinum is beautiful. The interior is luxurious much like the Infiniti with all the bells and whistles. My negatives are, the engine is much louder, and the back seat leg room is much smaller. Having the larger wheel makes for a harder ride. I still love the car.

This is my 4th Murano and each one is an improvement over the last one and I am extremely pleased with this. The 2016 replaced my 2014 which I loved and intended to keep for a long time but when an out of state driver plowed into me it totaled it but I was fine inside so I am very happy with it's "crash response" . I promptly went out and purchased the 2016 and have been very happy with it....so comfortable, plenty of space for cargo and friends-- can not recommend this vehicle enough...I also have a GLK350 which is nice but this has more space and honestly more "gadgets which I love and you can not beat the value. I am so pleased with the Murano I gave my son the Mercedes both are excellent cars but for me I prefer the Murano

Love this car

This is our 2nd new Murano. We had a used one prior and it had over 170,000 miles before we decided to sell it. We traded it in for a 2015 SL front wheel drive with all the extras. We loved it, but unfortunately my wife had someone make a left turn directly in front of her, in a Ford Expedition, causing major damage. Our new loved car was totaled. Luckily the Murano had an over abundant amount of airbags, which covered my wife all around the vehicle, all the way back to the side rear windows. As well as an airbag covering her feet and legs, amazing. Our insurance did it's job but we had to locate another vehicle. Well we loved our 15 Murano so well, we started looking at the 2016 Murano. We located and then purchased a 2016 Murano. The Premium model had AWD, and many new added features. And you know it, we got it at a better price than we paid for the 2015. It is a very safe vehicle and rides as nice as any luxury car we've owned. We are very happy with our choice. *****

I'm a 29 y/o male roughly 6'3" and 275 pounds. I was driving a Infiniti 35 before this car. I was looking for something a little bit more roomy, sporty looking and capable of holding my friends of similar stature. I saw the Murano and immediately loved the look of it. I know it's a bold design but it's flawless in my eyes. Its sporty, the interior is great (I have the arctic blue exterior with black leather interior) and I LOVE IT! I would caution anyone with kids not to get the S or SV as it's cloth and don't get the cashmere because it is too light in color. I couldn't believe for the price I am paying the quality of the vehicle that I'm driving. I believe that the car is comparable to a Infiniti Q70 which I was looking into but was way too expensive for me. It has a lot of the same qualities just not the big budget name. The car handles smoothly at all speeds (I've gone 75 in it so far). Fuel efficeny has got me going 450 miles per tank. The viewing angles are great and the blind spot monitoring, 360 degree cameras, are very helpful as well. I believe that I am riding in style with this SUV with a lot of curb appeal. The cons of the SUV are few and far between but the USB'S aren't fast charging so that is unfortunate. The Nissan Connect doesn't allow any other apps except for Google Search so no Pandora, no I <3 Radio or others. (I hope they release an update for this). Also I don't like that I have to hit the lock button before the auto start on my remote. (I wake up at 4:30am for work and hate that it beeps and may wake the neighbors. (Again a small flaw but I'm considerate). Again the car is fantastic and I'm very happy with it. There are multiple tools to learn about the SUV. Overall I'd give it a 4.7-4.8 rating out of 5. I hope if your serious that this review is worth your while. The pros definitly outway the cons.

waited for years, now I have the one I wanted

The ride is great, it has all that a luxury SUV should have. The only thing I found was a blind spot, if I didn't have the tech warnings, it would be dangerous. The only other frustration is the blue tooth connectivity is inconsistent so hands free driving is difficult.

Pros: Great seats/comfort, intuitive safety features, good cost value versus competitive "luxury" SUV's, good exterior styling Con: bad road vibration from large tires-not fun to drive, inconsistent idle that also causes vibration, dealership service dept. inconsistent-good maintenance but slow to answer phone and poor communications

Best Looking Murano Platinum I have ever seen!

I traded in a 2013 Nissan Pathfinder with only 20,000 miles on it for this vehicle. I just love it. It is beautiful, has all the bells and whistles, and I am very pleased with it. This is my third Murano, and the one I love the best. It will brake for me, let me know what is in my blind spot, and let me know if I cross the line and am partly in another lane. It has all-around cameras, and everything I would want in a vehicle. I think I will hold on this one for a while

I look up the SUV spoke to 3 or 4 dealers. No one had the SUV or tried to order the SUV for me so I do got a different SUV. I was looking for a Hybird SUV PLATINUM it was between the Murano and the Highlander and Edmunds said the Highlander was over priced so did consumers report. You don't list a Murano in a hybrid under trim type.

Very impressed. A real luxury suv.

Just leased about 2 weeks ago, but I have to say that I am real happy with my decision. I got the SL with the technology package and I'm impressed with all the upgrades included in the suv that are included for less than $40k. You'll feel like you are driving a luxury car when riding this one. I'm coming from a lease of the Ford Edge and I felt that it was a big upgrade, thinking mostly of all the features that are included in the Murano. The ride is just as smooth as the Edge, even though not as fast acceleration and a bit less cargo room, but nevertheless, the trade off is worthwhile. If you are looking for cross overs without the need for a 3rd row, I'd recommend to at least take a look at the Murano.

Great 2 Row SUV

Pros: S version finally is not lacking on options and standard features. I have NAV option and it's great for the money. S w/ NAV is about $1200 or so cheaper than SV. Great ride; super comfy seats; great electronics and easy to use; lots of space for passengers; good gas mileage: 18 city, 26 HWY real world - 1500 miles so far Cons: Blind spot is an issue but not as bad as it seems; gas mileage in city is not close to sticker; towing figures are laughable... you could easily tow 3500 lbs as it's the same engine and trans as the Pathfinder. I towed a 18ft ski boat easily with my old 2003 Murano. the only issue with towing is the hitch sits really low which is probably one of the reasons why it's not recommended. I recently towed a jet ski 550 miles each way and on mostly flat surfaces with little wind got 23 mpg at 74mph average. On a recent 100 mile trip gas mileage climbed to 26mpg at 80 mph. Overall this SUV is fantastic for the price. Nissan discounts these so dramatically that it's by far the best SUV for the money.

We were planning to get a compact SUV and looking at the Toyota RAV 4, Mazda CX5 and Honda CRV. My wife has a bad back, so we put a premium on her comfort. We went to an auto mall with all 3 dealerships and she sat in all 3 cars and deemed the CRV the most comfortable. They all drove well. As we were leaving, we decided to stop at the Nissan dealer as we had heard about the zero gravity seats in the Murano. She sat in one and the decision was made. The pros were seat comfort, more interior room, better color choices and combinations, luxurious interior that rivals the luxury brands and nice exterior styling. The cons were about $8K more expensive, lower gas mileage, little extra cargo room over the CRV considering how much bigger the vehicle is, leg room could be a bit longer.

I have had my Murano less than a week and I applaud NIssan for a well put together vehicle!! I am enjoying every driving opportunity! This stylish SUV handles very well! In addition, the Boise sound system is positioned well to produces a high quality sound! I think you will be impress with the 2016 Murano!

We owned a 2016 Acura RDX. After 3 months, we traded it for a Murano Platinum SUV. We found a dealer willing to give us an even trade. It was a good move. The Murano has been designed with the user in mind; not necessarily for the computer geeks or engineers really into auto design. The Murano has a navigation system that is reliable, easy to use, and provides useful information because of the way it is combined with Sirius/XM. It provides real time traffic issues. It shows the weather in our current area or where we are going as a destination. It lists stocks that we have entered and wish to follow. Entering a waypoint on a trip is a cinch. The sound system is excellent. It has a number of speakers that delivers great sound from our SiriusXM radio or a CD or the HD FM stations available. There are various options in the dashboard display. A driver can find just about any display he or she finds useful. I prefer the one that shows the next turn in our trip and also displays the radio station current being used with the SiriusXM system. When the navigation system is not being used, I like the compass displaying the direction heading. The transmission is very smooth and acceleration is good. It isn't a race car but passing is easy and we can get extra power when needed. It also uses regular gas. The CVT transmission is much better than some other luxury brands. I cannot feel the car shifting as we accelerate. I have had some back issues. A primary reason for buying the Murano is the comfort of the front seats. They are very comfortable. It is a pleasure driving this car. It is a luxury vehicle for a few thousand less than others (such as our Acura) with easy to use features and superior comfort. No back pain with the seats in this car. Service has been good at the Nissan dealers we have used. I use synthetic oil and can drive 7500 miles or more between oil changes. The heating/ cooling system is easy to use and works well. No problem with this car at all. There is one thing I would change: there is a bend in the hood of the car that displays a piece of metal right in front of the window. We have a white car. The sunlight that reflects off of this metal is blinding. I will consider going to a body shop to add a different color and finish to this piece of metal that is uncomfortable because of the blinding sunlight. The car is comfortable, easy to drive, handling is excellent, the sound system is exceptional and reliability is superb. This is a great car. Nissan offering a Murano that is better than many other luxury cars at a cheaper price.

Sleek and Classy

Murano SL with the premium package affords you a sleek look on the outside and luxury on the inside without the luxury price. I love it!

If you're looking for a mid size suv or crossover and don't at least test out the Murano, you would be foolish. We can afford luxury brands, however went ahead and purchased a Nissan. This car is an Infiniti in disguise. First we looked at the Audi Q5 and BMW X3, both we liked, great handling and quality but 10g more and premium gas. We then looked at the Lexus RX which we almost bought at $60,000. The NX is cheaper but to cramped inside. Off to Acura, RDX was to small and we had no need for 3 row seating, so didn't really consider the MDX. We also really liked the new Mercedes GLC but at 60g fully loaded was just to much and I couldn't adjust to that screen plastered on the dashboard like an after thought. My wife saw a new Murano at her work and we decided to go test drive one. Let me tell you, this car has plenty of quick acceleration. I like that it still has a V6 when everyone else is going to 4 cylinder turbos that need premium gas. Out of all the cars we test drove, the Murano was definitely the most comfortable. Sure it doesn't handle like a German car but it rides very smooth and the seats are awesome. I actually love the CVT transmission, it will surprise you and shifts gears (without gears) very well. This car has every option compared to a 50,000 or more crossover/suv. Its not to big but definitely bigger then the NX, RAV4 and Santa Fe. I'm not a fan of the Nissan Connect, but Spotify and Pandora work great. Navigation is very well done and the all around view cameras are awesome. My android phone works flawlessly with the system and text display. I hear Apple though, not as well and needs to be plugged into the usb port to use the apps. However my wife's IPhone works great with Bluetooth for music and hands free phone but not for the apps. We definitely wanted a crossover that had remote smart phone starting but the key fob remote start surprised me on how well it works through buildings and up to almost a football field away line of site. I do wish it had Apple car play or Android auto, but overall were very satisfied. The Murano will surprise you on what you get for 40,000 loaded out the door. Seriously if you're shopping for a crossover or suv, at least take a look at the Murano, Nissan really surprised us.

Great vehicle

I found a large hump on the front passenger side floor, after calling my local dealer they informed me it's part of body style. I have to say who in hell at Nisan thought that was a good idea.

We've only had it a month so I can't comment on reliability, but other reviews seem to have been spot on. Very comfortable, enough power, decent mpg and nice to look at. They seemed to have gotten the CVT figured out, it's not offensive, which is high praise because until this one I've had no use for them. If you tow things, go mudding or want a sports car in SUV clothing this isn't it. If you're an empty nester and need to haul your stuff around on trips this is as good as it gets. Let me mention again - this car is really comfortable. The computer interface is well done, it's intuitive and easy to use. The interior materials are very nice and the layout is spacious. I really like the motor, it's got plenty of power and uses regular gas. I don't have much use for twin turbo 4's that need premium which are what the majority of its competitors are doing. All in all we're very happy with this car, if you need an SUV and want a comfort cruiser this is definitely worth a look.

I have owned 2 Nissan Murano's in the past I wanted to get another one, at that time the new style wasn't out and I couldn't wait so I opted for the competition. With less than 4 months left on my lease i made the decision, I went back to the Murano and couldn't be happier. Do not I repeat do underestimate this SUV. You need to drive it just like I did, Nissan did an excellent job and went to the max to Redefine.
