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.

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.

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"

Anonymous, ON (2010 Nissan Murano)

"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!"

G B., WA (2010 Nissan Murano)

"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)


How it looks inside and out

What Owners Say

"Best looking SUV out there in 2010!"

G B., WA (2010 Nissan Murano)

"Nothing. we have the glass two window top. Which we rarely use. It make it easier to find in a parking lot"

Anonymous, FL (2010 Nissan Murano)

"disappointed with the rear storage, very difficult with the slant back to transport item"

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."

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.
