Hello Erik, when you say oil-burner edition, is that what we call a diesel engine?

On the other side of the ocean when someone says they have an engine that burns oil, it usually means something else as in a engine with bad piston rings and lubrication oil is burned meaning the engine is finished. I know you are indicating the fuel is oil but is it diesel or does it actually use fuel oil of some sort that I am not aware existed?

Ha-Zeb and I asked the same question at the same time!

Used 2014 Murano S Buyer

I'm retired and work part time as a driver for a major rental car company. This past summer I drove a new 2014 Murano to pick up a customer. I drive a lot of different suv models and my first impression was this Murano is head and shoulders over all the brands in this class. I owned a 2009 Saturn Vue XR, which I did like, but it doesn't match the quality of the Murano interior and quietness.

I never buy new cars and have had good luck buying rental cars. Since my wife's 2004 LeSabre has reached the 150,000 mark it was time to replace it. The wife loved our friends' Murano it was easy to convince her. Plus she does like driving and SUV. Looking forward to owning this vehicle for a long time.

I 'm the owner of a 2009 Murano that has issues.. My car has oil in the intake plenum and I have yet to figure out why. It has smoked on cold start ups for the past 6 months and I have tried just about every fix with the exception of replacing the valve covers.. the car has 92K miles and runs great except for the oil in the intake. I changed the PCV valve and spark plugs last month and to no avail, it still has oil in the plenum.. The engine has no blow by and the fresh air tube from the intake to the valve cover is oil free. I did notice Oil in the brake boost vacuum line when I had the intake off to wash out the oil. It appears that the oil has traveled into the vacuum lines and vacuum cannister if there is one on the Murano. Any suggestions as to what next??? Change valve covers???

@jimbob2527 - Welcome! A lot of knowledgeable and helpful folks here. If you haven't already, I suggest looking around and posting your question in the problem or performance areas.

Howdy All!

Just purchased a used 2012 Murano, I've mostly driven mid-sized trucks [most of which are no longer on the market!]. I'm sure I'll grow to love this one, I'm just missing my large console/armrest storage at the moment

Came by to look around and see if some of my questions are already answered here [I know forums are the best way to get questions answered!].

Hi Everyone

I think I posted here a few years ago, but I can't seem to find my info. Anyway I have driven Muranos since 2009. Just turned in my 2011 and purchased a 2015 SL (Black on Black). I was not really looking for a Murano, but the new design and the standard features convinced me. I have had the car for about a week and love it.

Hey...my name is Willie...from central AR. I currently drive a 2012 loaded Maxima (2nd Maxima...first was a 2007). I also own a 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4x4 Laredo V8 that I use for bad weather and pulling a utility trailer.

I joined this forum as I am very interested in picking up the new 2015 Murano to replace my 2012 Maxima (I was considering a 2012 Murano when I bought my current Maxima). I am wanting a newer reliable CUV that can haul my 2 pups and stuff while on long road trips (don't want to depend on the Jeep for long trips...and want better than 20 mpg hwy).

I hope to see what owners of the latest generation Murano are liking/disliking about the 2015s so far. I am really wanting a Pearl White Platinum FWD (no need for AWD with my Jeep parked next to it) with sunroof...with the cashmere or mocha interior. My Maxima has the charcoal interior and I really find it way too dark inside...and shows all the scuffs/scratches...so I plan to return to a lighter color interior. I know the driving experience will be different from my Maxima SV Premium...but I hope it won't be too much less engaging.
