3 vehicles in 9 months, finally got it right!!
I loved my 2010 LE Murano awd but didn't like the 18mpg's it gave me. So I sold it and bought a 2008 Explorer Sport Trac 4x4, v6 and it got even worse gas mileage (17 to 18) based on me not wanting to compromise my driving style.
I'm getting old and set in my ways. Plus, I couldn't rent a trailer from u-haul to take full advantage of the vehicle. Based on that I traded it and got a 2010 SV Maxima.
I'm happy to say that I'm now getting anywhere from 20-26 mpg's and I have 4 different driving modes to choose from, all without changing my driving style.
The Murano is great if you like sitting up high, the sets are very comfortable and it has great pickup. I really liked the audio system and the power liftgate. My family liked the heated rear seats and the room it had.
I learned alot about my self the last 9 months. I like bells and whistles and I need a vehicle that can be modded in some way by me.
My Murano had 38k miles on it and I sold it to CARMAX for $25,500. CARMAX priced it at $27,900 and it sold in 4 days. While looking for a new vehicle I checked Murano prices and 2011's with 60k - 80k miles on them were selling for $22k dollars or more.
