We had an 07 S AWD and the lease was up, so we were part of the 80+% of Murano owners who said they would purchase another Murano, and leased and upgraded to a 2010 SL AWD. Now, the lease is up on that in about 4 months. We will not be getting another one. We felt the tires wore out fairly quickly - at 14,000 miles with our 07, and about 16,000 miles on our '10. We might be financing the 18k buyout at the end of the lease, but we're still debating it.
Our 2010 only has 22,000 miles on it, and even with the buyout of 18k, and compared to our monthly payment now, I'd have it paid off in about 2 years. Also, where would I find another 2010 Murano SL AWD (which we knew the car since brand new) in as good as condition as ours for a little of $400 monthly - we're paying close to $600 now. (payment is high, but I only put a total of $500 out of my pocket when we acquired the car).
