4 months, 7k miles. Drove in the city, long haul on highways, in the mountains. Absolutely love it. The only complains so far some rattles. Otherwise very satisfied.
The car exceeded my expectations.

thanks for the site...I'm already reading the reviews their DAILY (b/c I'm a dork like that ;) . I don't know how long some of these people have had their cars for and sometimes it takes a few months to really get a feel for the car...so I'm hoping that i can get a lot of reviews for the Mo here. thanks for the help though!

I've had my Mo since April and I've got 5K miles on her.

So far- No squeaks, no rattles, no problems. Getting 18-20 mpg city and 21-22 highway. :)

It actually drives better now than it did for the first 1k miles. Most likely due to the break-in.

lol

my apologies.......


"go stillen prochargin" equates to installing the stillen procharger supercharger

"eibach springs" equates to installing better rate springs (or use the stiffer SE oem springs)

"sat g35" refers to the infititi "g35" non prewired sat receiver, which fits the MO perfectly..... (plus the needed harness/cables)

"yippee" is an expression of elation, or happiness....mostly slang...

lol <----no trans needed, IMO (oh boy, more IM-ese)

all in fun K, i hope

hz - I've owned mine since March & what can I say but, "I just love my MO, SUV &/or car whatever I happen to call it that day!:D

I have 8k miles on "it" & get 18-19 miles per gallon, not great but not bad.

The only 2 small problems that I have & which I aven't even addressed with dealer are:
1) the occassional rattle from my rr window when its down about 1" &
2) the eeeeeeeeekkkkk that I get when I back out or my garage & down my driveway first thing in the mornings.
I keep thinking I will have a real problem & reason to bring my MO to the dealer, but the MO just keeps putting the smile on my face.:D

I still have strangers coming up to me & talking to me about it & telling me how much they like it.
My friends, neighbors & even my 3 sons friends all think it's very :cool:

I have had my MO for two months. I have 13,000 miles on it and average around 22.5 MPG. I also have the rattles that most have and since I am in the MO long hours it does get a little irritating I must say. I seem to have the shaking in the steering also. But, for all that I do love to drive my MO.:D

13000 miles in two months?!!!!! You really gotta be comfortable in the Mo's seats to do that much driving!:D

2WD SE 7,500 miles since May

The MO is great and I am very satisfied. I had some creaking noise from the windows but they have disappeared. I have some brake dust noise from the front brake. MPG is around 20 on mostly freeway driving up and down a large grade to/from work. It is very quiet and handles nicely. Plenty of room in the rear and enough to take a couple buddies and their clubs golfing. Bose Stereo is great. Ventillation is very good and fan is quiet with infinite speeds.

I've had my Murano since January and I'm just as in love with it now, as I was when I got it. Although, I don't stand in the garage staring at it, as much. Still do on occasion! I still love it!!!!! I've never felt this way about a vehicle before. Must be an illness....

I've had mine since Feb. If I have to complain about SOMETHING, I'll complain about the sunglasses holder -- a little lame. I wish we had an overhead console type of thing for the sunglasses (like the Pathfinder). Although, I must admit, the "storage recesses" on top of the dash are suitably useful for the glasses (and other stuff) on long road trips.

Other than that, I absolutely love it! 12K km (that's about 7K miles) to date.

I've had my Murano since Dec 2nd and have just under 15K on the odometer. I love it. Long trips up to the Navajo Reservations, a 2500 mile trip from Phoenix to Reno to Yosemite, Death Valley and back to PHX. Only complaint is that is pulls to the R when braking hard. I don't have the rattles that other folks seem to have. Gas milage is about 17-19 around town and 22+ on the freeway. I've actually had the computer tell me I'm getting 26+ mpg on level freeway. Can't wait till next month when I can stop using the AC and will hopefully see a 2mpg increase. Phoenix is AC use from April to Oct.

Had mine since July 03, and went 4K miles so far. I am fascinated by Bart (that's how I call my Mo because it carries a Bart Simpson windows puppet at all times) every single time I drive it. It is both beautiful and technically excellent. And yes, there are days when I catch myself standing in the garage staring at it...
The only real problem I have is the yellowish color of the awfully misplaced fuel tank control lamp. Anyone out there who can tell me how to disassemble the dash and replace the LED with a bright red one?

Late January with 10500 miles. It is great. A few issues I don't care for.

Window rattle - I'd like to be able to drive with the window partially down without hearing it make noise.

Gauge Cluster just started making noise.

FM Reception - printed the doc for it to bring in on the next oil change :)

Other then that - we like it. Decent performance for an SUV. Handles nice. Look forward to driving it whenever the wife will let me have the keys :)
