Here in the Cincinnati area we received about 8" of the white stuff. Of course my wife had planned a full day of last minute Christmas shopping. Why most sane people stayed warm at home, we ventured out in our MO. Here in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky the road crews are not used to this amount of snowfall, so the roads were in very poor condition. I just want to say, that the AWD Murano is the best vehicle I have ever owned to handle heavy snow. It just plowed through anything while others struggled. Starting and stopping were amazing. If you are looking for a vehicle for good snow navigation, the AWD Murano is the best!
