Hi Just bought a 2012 Murano SL AWD w/ Navi

Hi I'm Texas325,

Originally from Texas but moved to Ohio for work. Bought the Murano last month - 2012 SL AWD w/ Navi Package and I'm loving it. It was either this or the Mitsubishi Outlander GT but the Murano due to the quality of material to the car in relation to the price. The Murano replaced my fun, but thirsty and harsh ride 2010 Mitsubishi Lancer Sportback Ralliart.




So far the only thing I've done to it is the OEM Rear Bumper Plate and New taken off 20" OEM Infiniti JX35 wheels with OEM Bridgestones.

Thanks, they were selling it at a good price on eBay (it had 100 miles on it). I had to jump on it and it was a direct fit to the Murano including the center caps.

Stock 18s 235/65/18 18x7.5, 5x114.3 Centerbore 66



Infiniti Stock JX35 235/55/20 20x7.5, 5/114.3 Centerbore 66


It was kinda scary lifting the car up with the tiny stock jack.

Yeah, I think that jack is useless. Get a good hydraulic one.

Enjoy your new ride.. Do know though that your Nav is crippled to say the least. Read this thread: Murano2011 Nav/Phone/DVD/Cam ByPass Kit

Any questions, give a shout.

eeeee

It's fine for "stranded on the road", but for doing work in your garage...I agree. Get over to Harbor Freight and pick up a hydraulic floor jack, and at least one pair of jackstands.

It's nice that we're able to swap parts between Nissan and Infiniti. I like the FX wheels and even the EX wheels but I don't like that the center cap logo is not interchangeable like the JX wheels.
