The Murano scored very well in our tests and is a competitive model in the crowded SUV market. We like its powerful engine, nimble handling, strong brakes, comfortable rear seats and relatively good fuel economy. However, a stiff ride, limited rearward visibility and its use of premium fuel are notable drawbacks.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Owner Satisfaction with:

Driving Experience

Includes acceleration and handling

What Owners Say

“strong acceleration,”

Anonymous, CA (2007 Nissan Murano)

“Accelerates smartly, especially for a 6 cylinder engine with automatic transmission. Shift bump / vibration is non-existent with CVT type transmission. Handling is quick and responsive.”

DOUGLAS Z., AZ (2007 Nissan Murano)

“Bad steering wheel issues with car twice. Won't buy another one”

Anonymous, OH (2007 Nissan Murano)

“Great power and acceleration”

Anonymous, NM (2007 Nissan Murano)


Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

What Owners Say

“driver's seat welds broken. cannot move seat in any direction.”

Anonymous, MO (2007 Nissan Murano)

“Car seems solid. Seats are comfortable and there is plenty of leg room in the rear. Purchased the "S" model and should have gone for the "SL". Too many niceties left off the "S" that make driving that much more comfortable. No auto climate control. No auto lamp function. No power front passenger seat. No leather. No heated front seats.”

TERRY M., UT (2007 Nissan Murano)

“Seats could be more comfortable on long trips.”

BARBARA B., MO (2007 Nissan Murano)

“Once I replaced the Goodyear tires with Michillen tires it is quiet and great for long trips”

JON T., CA (2007 Nissan Murano)

“A/C could be improved”

Anonymous, NM (2007 Nissan Murano)

“It is exceptionally roomy and very comfortable.”

Anonymous, GA (2007 Nissan Murano)

“Car is more noisy when in operation than I like. Tire noise and interior squeaks and rattles are above average. No issues with climate control. Drivers lumbar support is either broken or ineffectual.”

DOUGLAS Z., AZ (2007 Nissan Murano)

“comfortable, nice ride, climate control”

Anonymous, CA (2007 Nissan Murano)

“Driver seat was broken underneath and we could never get the dealer to do anything about it,.”

JUDY B., AB (2007 Nissan Murano)

“I was afraid the driver's seat mounting would break, like so many other owners of 2000-2007 Muranos, but fortunately it has never happened to me. After 8 years the car is becoming noisier and the ride more bumpy.”

JOHN W., ON (2007 Nissan Murano)


Did you get what you wanted relative to the price you paid?


What Owners Say

“Would have thought that the quality of the dash and door materials would have been better for the price that I paid for this vehicle. Also, the tire air warning light never worked properly from the time I bought the car. While still under warranty, it was still never fixed at the dealership. I paid to have it repaired at a private repair shop and that didn't work either. Definitely faulty system.”

KATHLEEN D., NY (2007 Nissan Murano)

“Was purchases used as a 3 year old car, reasonable value.”

PETER S., NJ (2007 Nissan Murano)

“Compared to similar vehicles it was a good value. It is very roomy with lots of storage. I'm pleased they didn't try and put a third row seat in.”

MARILOU E., MO (2007 Nissan Murano)

“My 2003 Murano was stolen and not recovered. AAA insurance settled my comprehensive claim with enough to obtain a GREAT deal I found on this 2007 Murano. I am very pleased with the settlement and the quality of my newer car.”

CHARLES D., AZ (2007 Nissan Murano)

“I consider the value of a vehicle purchase to include the dollar amount of repairs necessary to maintain the vehicle. The cost of repairs I've incurred have been absolutely unacceptably high. If I hadn't paid so much for the vehicle when new, I probably would have gotten rid of the vehicle after 3 or 4 years. But, because of the huge amount of depreciation incurred during that time, I felt I needed to keep the vehicle for the long haul, and I was therefore stuck as far as the continuing high”

JOHN B., WI (2007 Nissan Murano)


How it looks inside and out

What Owners Say

“A lot of money to pay for the inferior quality of the materials used in this vehicle. Terrible dealership service in general from Nissan. Would never purchase another Nissan because of their dealerships.”

KATHLEEN D., NY (2007 Nissan Murano)

Percentage of owners who would definitely purchase that same vehicle again. Owner-satisfaction Ratings are determined by the percentage of those who answered "definitely yes" to the question asked by the Consumer Reports Annual Auto Survey "Considering all factors (price, performance, reliability, comfort, enjoyment, etc.), would you get this car if you had to do it all over again?". If we don’t have sufficient data, a similar model might be used to form the owner-satisfaction score.
