I stand corrected.

My family absolutely loves this car. Hopefully it will have more longevity than my MO did. Only time will tell.

The only thing it's missing is the roof rack and cross bars. there is a low profile aftermarket solution that I'll add in the near future that won't interfere with the panoramic sunroof. Until then, nothing up there but glass

The engine compartment is crammed as usual. Maybe I'll add a CAI to clean things up a bit. Lots of clutter on the intake side. At least the K&N sticker (put on later) makes things look a bit better.

Nice ride!! I may have to leave Nissan also if what you said is true about low quality in the newer models. I was look at buying an Ford Edge, until I saw the smallish brake rotor size on it, well at least on a vehicle that size. However, it is nice looking. I may have to reconsider my thoughts on it. Do you feel that the Edge stop as quick as the Murano or better? It is very important question for me due to nature of stop and go traffic here in Atlanta.

The tire shot is of a rear wheel, which naturally have smaller calipers than the front wheels. So no worries there, the Edge has a fantastic braking system. Overall, the edge outperforms the Murano in every way. It's very comfortable to ride in, quiet, powerful, etc. I found that road and engine noise easily made its way into the Murano. The Edge exponentially quieter than the Murano which is a plus for my family. The sound system in the LImited version I have is also top notch, crisp, clear, and quite powerful...almost too much power. It has the exact same towing specs and gets the same mileage as I got in my MO. You'll love it! Test drive one and you'll see what I'm talking about.

IMHO, Nissan has a lot of work to do on their MO's to get to this level.

After 142K miles, my MO is history. Now sporting a loaded silver 2012 Ford Edge Limited with 20" wheels.

Warhammer-

I just got back on the forum and read your post. What a shame. After 142,000 miles you would hope you would be moving on because you want to, not because you have to. Having to fork over $3,600 to repair two trouble-prone items that were replaced only 40,000 miles ago is ridiculous.

I wish you luck with the new rig. Hopefully it will serve you for another 142,000 miles like the MO, but be significantly more reliable and less of a money pit.

I also want to thank you for your contributions here. I have learned much from you.

Thanks, it's been a pleasure. I've always enjoyed helping out, and this was an outlet to do so. I've also learned some things from this site too, like learning to hate fluid filled bushines.

I'll stick around for a while longer. I'm in the process of cleaning out my garage, and will have some MO things to sell in the near future.

Plus...there's more. I talked with a couple Nissan technician friends about their new line of cars and what problems they have. Pretty much every new vehicle released; Rogue, Pathfinder, Juke, Murano, etc all have problems with their new transmissions or power train in one form or another.

So it's bye bye with Nissan for me until further notice. I like the CVT but there are too many problems and it seems like Nissan is not desiging quality into their vehicles any longer.
Parted with my 07' today as well, even though it is running fine, the CVT issue is even more costly to resolve in the UK. What with that threat and the seat bracket problem that hasn't arrived yet, I've cut my potential losses.
It cost me $13200 in January 2013 and I have swapped it for an 03' Jeep Cherokee/Liberty 3.7 V6 $6250, plus $4000 cash back. All the usual Jeep problems have been resolved by the previous 2 owners , so it's as good a deal as I could hope for really.
It's been nice........................
