Have any of you been out on the beaches of the cape?
I really want to be able to cruise a few of the cape beaches. I emailed the managers of the Cape Cod National Seashore and they said they'd permit MOs on the beach. They said that it was all about the tire dimensions, not so much ride hight, and the MO and MDX fit the specs. They mentioned that certain RX300s don't meet the specs due to a lack of sidewall.
If anyone has any experience, thoughts, or input I'd love to hear it.
Never been beach riding or 4 wheeling. I use the car for business and want to keep it nice inside and out. I don't think that this is the right ride for that... afraid I would get bogged down and get that sand in a lot of places it shouldn't be.
Yeah, I read that about the writer who got stuck... pretty funny.
I also remember reading in earlier posts here, probably back into last year (I'm a long term lurker) that a bunch of people had taken them on the beaches of the outer banks and had a great time. The general consensus was that you needed to keep moving unless you had it on harder sand closer to the water.
The folks running the National Seashore seemed to think it would be fine as long as you drop your tire pressure to 15psi. That's why they require the proper size tires. Of course, meeting their spec's doesn't guarantee you won't get stuck.
While I was dropping my daughter off at day care last week I had a father of one of the other girls there come up to me and ask me how I liked my Murano. He said it's always been a dream vehicle of his. Naturally I told him how great it was.
Still feels awesome though that I still get compliments after owning it for 2 1/2 years now. It's a testament to how great a vehicle it truly is.
2007 SL AWD, Brilliant Siver with Charcoal Interior. Most options minus Bluetooth and GPS. With my 2001 Intrepid as a trade in my price was just under 32K now throw in taxes, extended warantee etc. and it was abit more ;-) Mine was so new that after we took it for a test drive it had 27 miles on it and no dealer SKU number. Here is a crummy pic, I will take more once I get her cleaned up again and lookin' better than she does right now.
