Using the parking brake would solve that problem.

That's interesting, I always use my parking brake when on any sort of incline. (Which is why the transmission roll doesn't bother me.) I do it for a couple of reasons.
First, I don't want the weight of the vehicle on the mechanism that locks the transmission, as it really bugs me on cars when you shift out and hear this big "clunk" as it releases, because it's under pressure from the vehicle. Just doesn't sound healthy to me.
And second, I don't think it's safe to rely only on your transmission and differentials to keep the vehicle in place on an incline.
I've done this for decades, so it's habit, not something I specifically started when driving the Murano.
So while I notice the larger than a convential automatic, roll, every day in my garage, I'm used to it and because I expect it, it doesn't bug me.
For me it could be added to the "Little things I'd tweak if I was designing the Murano" list... I think it would be near the bottom though!

Come on fellas, the MO is rolling backwards becuase the rubber band in the CVT stretches.
