Hi there. Newbie here, in Western Canada. I'm getting my 2018 SL later today.
I thought I posted this a day or 2 ago but I must have mis-clicked something.
Coming from a 2010 Cadillac CTS, I'm looking forward to some of the great new technology, particularly the cameras, and Apple Carplay. My CTS worked with my iPhone for about a week, then I got a newer one with Lightning connector and even with the proper adapter, the car said "incompatible device".
Also looking forward to doing my own oil changes again. My last 2 cars were a pain. Passat had a huge "belly pan" that was hard to remove, and even harder to re-install, and the CTS is too low for my floor jack or my low profile ramps. I understand there are plastic panels over the filter area and drain plug on the Murano to, but they appear to be reasonably easy to deal with so we'll see how lazy I am.
I will miss the hard drive full of music in my CTS, I understand the user interface when playing from a usb stick leaves a bit to be desired. Mrs Penguin had a 2011 Murano and the U.I. on the entertainment/nav system was horrendous. Her 2015 is better for sure.
Nothing planned for modifications other than some floor mats, a seat cover for the back to keep my dogs from scratching it up, and we'll see if I hate the tires. I forget what mine has on it. but Mrs. Penguin's 2015 has Bridgestones and they are bad in the snow.
