The Nissan Murano is a comfortable SUV with high interior quality and refinement. While it has lost some of its sportiness, Murano gained a quieter, more comfortable ride. Its powertrain delivers lively acceleration and relatively good fuel economy. The rear seat and cargo area are roomy. Rear visibility remains a problem, a victim of styling. A blind-spot detection/lane-departure warning system is available.

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.

Anonymous, WI (2010 Nissan Murano)

"The CVT Transmission feels sluggish after about 50,000 miles. Not enough to take in into the dealer but enough to know I don't want another CVT."

JAY R., TX (2010 Nissan Murano)

"This SUV is very hard to see out. Back is very limited and the front side post (A post) is very wide at the bottom.. Not a good car to loan to others not use to driving a SUV"

"I thing it has about 260 HP and it accelerates quickly with no lag time. Powerful, stable ride, even in cross winds."

Thomas M., MN (2010 Nissan Murano)

"Acceleration is quite good, and handling is steady. The only problem really, is the CVT, which I've never really gotten used to. It halts and sputters coming out of a dead stop nearly every time. It's not the engine, it's the tranny. But put your foot down and -- after an initial hesitation, regardless of starting speed -- she gets up and goes."

"Handles and accelerates better than many in its class"

Anonymous, MA (2010 Nissan Murano)

"I really enjoy driving my '10 Murano. Adjustments for seat and steering wheel are easy, and the seats are very comfortable. It holds the road well and is easy to negotiate in town."

Anonymous, LA (2010 Nissan Murano)

"Acceleration is great for the size of vehicle and a 6 cylinder engine and a CVT transmission resulting in a smooth and constant acceleration. Handling is acceptable for SUV vehicle but during high cross winds that suspension is a bit soft."

"this is a very stylish interior with modern looks gages. The car is roomy (I am 6'6" tall and have plenty of leg room to drive) and the seats are comfortable."

TIM B., KY (2010 Nissan Murano)

"Long distance driving comfort - do not have the tired right leg which I have experienced with some sedans. Very good comfortable ride. Drivers seat frame- much better that the 2004 Murano, which broke twice during the first 50,000 miles on the 2004."

DAVID S., FL (2010 Nissan Murano)

"Seats are wide and firm - they huge me just right with good lateral support - superior to other similar vehicles in its class that we test drove"

"Like sitting in your living room."

DEAN T., FL (2010 Nissan Murano)

"Very comfortable driver's seat. I need the support due to back issues... I tested 4-5 vehicles but only the Murano worked for me. A superb seat. Climate controls, quietness and the ride are all fine. Best driving car I have ever owned."

"Very comfortable seating position. Very quiet on the road. Easy to reach and operate all comfort controls."

TODOR D., GA (2010 Nissan Murano)

"it gives a ride and performance of a more expensive car"

Richard S., IL (2010 Nissan Murano)

"Seats are fine for normal day to day driving but for longer trips they could be improved by having a longer seat. Noise levels could be improved with some additional sound suppression material. My vehicle has sunroof which does allow for some additional road and wind noise. Ride is a bit stiff but I think that is due to such short wheel base."

Anonymous, AB (2010 Nissan Murano)

"Amazing ride. I have driven cars (including a brand-new 2016 Sonata) and nothing compares with the comfort of my murano. Combine that with it being AWD with a decent tow capacity, and you can't beat it. To note, the tow capacity of the newer muranos is half of what the 2010 can do."

Value

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

What Owners Say

"better mileage"

WAYNE T., HI (2010 Nissan Murano)

"Nissan seems very stingy with their options. We bought the mid-level trim with the "special value package" that is supposed to bring it closer to the top level trim, yet the headlights don't even come on automatically. Almost any other car I could buy with more than the lowest trim level (and perhaps some of them) would come with automatic headlights."

Anonymous, PA (2010 Nissan Murano)

"It was just over one year old when we purchased it so we saved about $23,000 versus same new model and we got a 5 yr extended warranty that has just now expired. Vehicle continues to work extremely well with no major problems"

"For thevprice, this vehicle is loaded with many features that are normally seen on luxury vehicles!"

DENISE G., FL (2010 Nissan Murano)

"Well designed, comfortable seats and interior. Good handling vehicle. Well balanced for passengers and cargo!"

"great driving, reliable, feels well made"

TIM W., NC (2010 Nissan Murano)

"We bought it as a 3 month old demo and have had relatively good luck with it. No major issues, just some annoyances such as an ABS dash light that would come on when wet. It did get fixed."

KEVIN B., ON (2010 Nissan Murano)

"The Murano has been very dependable for 7 years, the couple times it needed repair the Nissan dealer has been very accommodating. The styling may be subjective but to me it doesn't seem to look dated after 7 years."

Dale E., WI (2010 Nissan Murano)

"It runs and runs and runs. We've had it for 7 years and other then the normal wearing of brakes and oil changes, this car has been a gem. My wife like the height of the vehicle and she will never go back to a sedan."

Thomas M., MN (2010 Nissan Murano)

"Has been a comfortable car to ride in for over 200K miles. Door shape allows easy in and out. Mileage is respectable for this class of vehicle and maintenance costs have been reasonable as I use independent mechanics to service vehicle"

R F., VA (2010 Nissan Murano)

"We think we "lucked out" with this purchase in 2010. The vehicle continues to get good mileage and remains a comfortable vehicle to ride in and drive. It has luxury features of auto-adjustable leather seats, Bose audio system, bluetooth, etc, and we have had no major repair work done over 130,000 miles."

LOIS S., PA (2010 Nissan Murano)

"I love the fit snd finish of the interior, but the exterior looks a little bit like an egg. I almost didn't buy it due to the style of it. It had the smoothest ride of all the choices that we considered."
