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.

She also mentions the car rides quietly, rides smoothly and accelerates with power to spare. My 2014 Rogue is lethargic in comparison when comparing acceleration."

"I am tall and the drivers door sill is low, so getting in the car is a contortion act. Very thick A pillars and poor rear visibility make watching environment harder than it should be. The review-view camera is excellent and an absolute necessity The integrated blind spot warning indicators are worse than useless, as they are easily and often confused by rain and give false loud audible warnings, but then miss actual vehicles."

When I fist picked up the automobile the service dept. had to adjust and balance the wheel assembly because the transmission has a tendency to shake & rattle the steering wheel a little bit. The problem was rectified and hopefully will never return."
