I'm android, my wife is iPhone. Every freaking time she plugs her phone in it immediately starts playing 50Cent (the first song in her iTunes playlist I guess...) and it's so annoying.

Took me a couple months to discover this. The console light is on without headlights.

So it is...thanks

I do wish it came on every time like the center console though, that glovebox is like a cave!

The Murano is thin with the interior lights.
Should have additional footwell and cargo area lights.

The cargo area light is an easy upgrade to a bright LED. The footwell lighting saved them $5 and now they can charge $200 for the Interior Accent Lighting - Nissan (999F3-C5000) accessory!

Reflection of air vents in the side windows.

Sun glare from hood.

Sun Glare from trim around gear shift.

Stupid divided arm rest, my arm always ends up between the pads.

Center console lack of storage options, seriously my Xterra has coin slots and pen holders. Murano gets a little tray?

None of the power outlets are active when the ignition is off, can’t leave something in the car plugged in to charge while parked.

Hood does not open high enough.

The white ambient light that shines down on the cup holders can’t be turned off. I recently disabled it. Much better!

Cargo area lighting is horrible at night. (but we can see our cup holders just fine!)

Mismatched dash illumination colors with both white and amber. Why not just make it all white?

Steering wheel controls illumination, I’ve owned 7 other vehicles with steering wheel controls, none of them lit up, never had a problem finding the buttons at night.

Can’t turn off the DRLs when parked with the engine running.

Foot activated parking brake rather than a handle or electronic.

Radio turns on with remote start, kind of embarrassing when you leave volume up a little high.

Only Nissan Connect app available is Google search.

Voice actions are worthless. I have not successfully gotten it to lookup a destination after numerous attempts.

Navigation only shows how many minutes till you arrive at your destination not the estimated time of arrival.

Navigation does not show interstate exit numbers in the instrument cluster, only on the main screen when you get close to the exit.

While navigating to a location it will often tell me route guidance is no longer available and stop providing turn by turn directions but it will still show the blue line on the map to indicate where to turn and it will still recognize that you arrived.

Navigation maps in my 2015 are from 2012, Nissan wants $135 to update maps only, no other software updates or apps included.

Bose system does not sound anywhere near as good as the Rockford Fosgate audio in my Xterra. Of course this could be due to the subwoofer being in the spare tire vs. under the drivers seat.


This ended up being a little longer than I expected...

How did you program the unlocking in park instead of ignition off?

This is done through the settings in the dashboard. I've since completely disabled the auto locking function.

Wow, you should definitely be getting rid of this car, and getting one you actually like. When I don't like a car, I continually find things wrong with it. I have found the best solution is to sell it and move on.

All vehicles have things people don't like. I think we should put a rating of 1 to 10 to qualify what we don't like! The sun glare from the hood is a 10 for me on a sunny day (and 0 on a cloudy day or at night) and the rest of the things I reported earlier more or less a 3. Not enough to trade in after only one year of ownership plus nothing else comes close for my needs at the same price.


I just wish Nissan would have resolved some of these issues as part of a mid-cycle refresh. Typically in their usual 6 year life span before a new gen comes out, this should have happened for the 2018 model year; all they did was to add Apple Play for 2017.5 then for 2018 Android Auto, a slightly redesigned console, FEB on all trims and they added foot operated liftgate on higher trim. Not exactly ground breaking IMO...I wonder if the 2019 will have a redesigned hood or if we'll have to wait for the next gen???

Agreed - best vehicle at the price point for me as well. Also, many of these issues are relative. I find the vent trim ring reflection annoying, but not very difficult to look past (for me - others percieve this differently). The hood reflection seemed to be a non-issue until I drove east - west route at sunset, then it was ďHoly Crap! That is bad!Ē However, I rarely drive at that time, so for me it is a minor annoyance, but for someone in the sunbelt doing a daily commute in that sun would be bad and having me curse Nissan repeatedly

Is this possibly a 2017 setting? (Others?) I can't find anywhere to change the auto unlock setting from 'ignition off' to 'park'. thanks

I'm pretty sure all model years starting in 2015 have this; check your manual if you have one it should be in the controls and instruments section (That's where it is in my Canadian version). This is done throught the screen right in front of you, not the big one in the head unit. First ignition on or engine running. On the left part of the steering wheel there is a button with a left and a right arrow. Press either one several times until you see Vehicle settings. Press the OK button and scroll down until you see Locking, press OK again and choose Shift into Park, press OK and exit. Good luck and welcome to the forum!

Just checked, the 2015 Platinum does not have that Shift into Park option in the Locking settings. Boo for me, I want it to unlock in Park so passengers can get out or in. Thank you for looking for me.
