I am looking to buy a 2015 Nissan murano SL AWD in black. It only has 13k miles and is a really good price (around 25k). It was a manufacture buyback so that's why the price is so good. The issue was fixed and seemed that it was minor issue with cruise control (which I never use). I drive about 40k miles a year so if I buyit I plan to drive it to like 200k miles so the buyback issue woulnt be a issue for me when I go to trade it in in 4 or 5 years since it wont be worth much anyway. Here was the issue as described on the paperwork. I drove the vehicle and it drove perfect. It looks mint condition. what do you think? Should I get it?


"cruise control inoperative - Mirror settings - Reconfigured the anti-break system control module and performed steering angle sensor calibration to resolve cruise control concerns. replaced the right front door harness and right front mirror to resolve minor setting concerns"

If that's all that needed correction, a good price goes a long way to saying "yes."

If you resell, you aren't required to disclose a "buyback", so that shouldn't be an issue.

Sounds like someone with low patience bought it, raised a fuss, and they bought it back to quiet them down. Just make sure that's all that was at issue - and make sure you have the factory warranty.

yeah im hoping to take advantage of it and get it. if it was a buyback because of an issue with the trans or engine, like they felt stalling or weird sounds from engine, then I wouldn't even look at it. But an issue with a side view mirror and cruise control, I don't even use cruise control and as long as the mirror isn't cracked im good with it

Considering the discounts out there, I have to ask if you’ve looked at deals on new ones. That seems like a retail price on a used Murano to me. Maybe I’m wrong.

But you can get $8K+ on Muranos right now. Even the newest models are discounted. I’d look really hard before buying used right now, especially under your circumstances.

Don't. Mine is going thru a buyback and it was originally a radar unit problem (tied to the adaptive cruise control system) and there's just problem after problem. I had to get my head unit replaced and my rear liftgate malfunctions even after reset and replacing control units. If it has an electrical problem, I feel like there will be more down the line.

2015 SL buyback

I believe warranty is 3yr 36k miles. Your warranty is up in 2018. 2015 was the first yr out with new design. 1st year normally worst one to buy . 17 and 18 model less prone to manufacture issues I would hope. I would go with a newer model with no buy back issues which can be traced back by the next buyer. Be patient with your decision. Good luck.
