The striking, third-generation Nissan Murano serves up a decidedly premium interior feel. While the curvy, swoopy concept-car like styling impedes outward visibility, the Murano is easy to live with otherwise. Interior accommodations are generous, access is easy, and controls are mostly simple-to-use, including a well designed touchscreen infotainment system. The plush cabin is impressively finished and quiet.

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

“We intended to buy another Hyundai Sante Fe. Our 2006 was a reliable hot rod with lots of wheel spinning torque. They bulked up the 2015 Sante Fe and reduced the acceleration as to be unacceptable like stepping on a wet sponge.”

DANIEL B., AR (2015 Nissan Murano)

“I was a little unsure of purchasing a vehicle with a CVT. After a week or two of driving it, I forgot about the difference between it and a standard automatic.”

MIKE J., OH (2015 Nissan Murano)

“Slow to accelerate”

THOMAS V., CO (2015 Nissan Murano)

“Enough power for any driving experience.”

PAUL-DONNA M., CA (2015 Nissan Murano)

“Very solid and stable on the road, even in windy conditions”

DAVID R., AZ (2015 Nissan Murano)

“The 2015 Murano's acceleration is outstanding with the big V-6 engine. Plenty of power for this mid-size SUV.”

Anonymous, MO (2015 Nissan Murano)

“Great, as advertised”

SALLY S., GA (2015 Nissan Murano)

“Amazed at the seamless CVT automatic and the boost in fuel economy.”

JAMES M., ON (2015 Nissan Murano)

“Acceleration is OK. Driving is way too light it's cheers to easy and needs constant attention.”

JAMES S., FL (2015 Nissan Murano)

“I have some concern about the transmission. It is a CVT trans and I am hearing about others having problems”

JOHN N., KS (2015 Nissan Murano)

“The engine has very good torque and accelerates to highway speeds easily and quickly. Many of my passengers have commented on smoothly the vehicle handles the bumps, curves, braking and other challenges of the road.”

TIMOTHY M., NY (2015 Nissan Murano)

“Plenty of acceleration with the 6 cylinder engine. Handling, for an SUV, above average.”

PAUL R., CA (2015 Nissan Murano)

“acceleration is only acceptable. There is obtrusive noise under rapid acceleration. Handling is good to very good. Steering wheel is slanted upward too much vs. up and down.”

Anonymous, IL (2015 Nissan Murano)

“Good driving experievce”

Anonymous, PA (2015 Nissan Murano)

“I really enjoy the driver assist features. The speed control/following assist is especially nice on the busy freeway, as are the blind spot monitors. After driving a car with poor blind visibility with no monitors, it is a real blessing. And, I don't think the all around visibility is that bad after my previous vehicle!”

JOE H., NE (2015 Nissan Murano)

“When I researched this car, CR showed steering loose and I have found it to be extremely good and easy to handle. I think the comfort is comparable with Buicks I have owned”

B G., FL (2015 Nissan Murano)

“CVT : When driving in moderately hilly terrain with cruise control engaged, spped will often slow and then then RPM accelerates (up to 4000rpm) but will not downshift without disengaging cruise control. Also CVT sometimes causing shaking feeling at low speed.”

Anonymous, TX (2015 Nissan Murano)

“The turn radius is outstanding! Especially with this size of vehicle.”

DANA K., IL (2015 Nissan Murano)

“Made changes from previous Murano transmissions. Current transmission is sluggish and not smooth. seems to operate vehicle at high RPM's. Providing less gas mileage. Also Front clearance is lowered and is to low to ground for a SUV type vehicle.”

BOB B., CO (2015 Nissan Murano)

“The only slight gripe I have is with the CVT. I have never owned a car with this type transmission and it has a slow speed quirk that happens here and there. It will chatter like it is in too high a gear. It does this infrequently and only when you have, for instance, slowed for a light that then turns green and you try to slowly accelerate. All you must do to stop this is let off the gas and press it again. But, I hate that aspect of the CVT! I would not buy a car with one now if I could do it”

PATRICIA P., TN (2015 Nissan Murano)

“The handling on this car is superb. It really does well on the corners and in quick-response situations.”

JENNIFER L., GA (2015 Nissan Murano)

“Acceleration is solid. No issues whatsoever with handling”

GERRY F., AB (2015 Nissan Murano)


Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

What Owners Say

“They have made the leg room shorter. Than the 2006. Also the seats are narrower.”

ROBERT M., OR (2015 Nissan Murano)

“The seats are very comfortable even on very long drives and are both heated and ventilated. The climate control works like a dream and in conjunction with the remote starter has the vehicle ready to drive when we get in. The noise level is excellent making conversation possible without having to shout.”

TIMOTHY M., NY (2015 Nissan Murano)

“Seats and ride are very good.”

TOM J., CA (2015 Nissan Murano)

“This car is VERY comfortable even on long drives. Passengers have remarked on the styling, rear seat space and comfortable ride and seats.”

T L., ON (2015 Nissan Murano)

“The comfort of this car can be favorably compared to cars costing much more. The seats are very comfortable and has individual climate control. Noise levels are minimal with a ride that is comfortable but still provides driver feedback and control.”

DANIEL B., AR (2015 Nissan Murano)

“Very comfortable smooth ride with great climate control, cools quickly in hot weather. Excellent quite ride.”

Anonymous, CA (2015 Nissan Murano)

“Very quiet and easy to use climate control - very comfortable on the highway but suspension at times feels too soft - in town car feels a bit clumsy and ponderous and at times suspension feel harsh with vibration through the steering wheel”

LAURIE C., NC (2015 Nissan Murano)

RICHARD M., PA (2015 Nissan Murano)

“Comfort: like driving your living room couch”

Anonymous, NY (2015 Nissan Murano)

“The drivers seat is 8 way power with lumbar support. The passenger seat is 4 way power with no lumbar support. This is not right in a top trim level considering the cost of this car.”

THOMAS T., OH (2015 Nissan Murano)

“I did not go with the higher package, as I bought the car at a time when I was not prepared to buy. My other car had issues that wouldn't wait months. I am hoping the uncomfortable driver's seat is because it is the lower-end model. There are only two ways to adjust and both are manual.”

JENNIFER L., GA (2015 Nissan Murano)

“The seats are very comfortable, but my front seats squeak. I've had them checked several times, and each time the body shop takes the seat out, oils the base, puts it back in, and in another few weeks the seat is squeaking again.”

Anonymous, TX (2015 Nissan Murano)

“Luxury suv and 20" wheels. Rides too rough. Handling ok. Vibration at 60+ mph.”

P T., KY (2015 Nissan Murano)

“Heating/Air conditioning controls are confusing”

JAMES M., WV (2015 Nissan Murano)

“Although my Murano only has 25000km so far it is one of the best vehicles I have ever owned. I have nothing negative to say about it so far !!”

VINCENT L., PA (2015 Nissan Murano)

“Zero gravity seats they call it. They are most comfortable on long rides.”

JIM G., NC (2015 Nissan Murano)

“Overall, the seats are very comfortable. The only discomfort is in cold weather, a significant cold draft comes through the driver's side door handle. The dealer' s mechanic test drove my vehicle and another new one from the lot and both the same leak.”

MARTIN L., SK (2015 Nissan Murano)

“Seating is outstanding...comfort plus. Minimal road noise....handles very nice with no noticeable under/ over steer. Suspension soft yet supple.”

EDWIN M., NY (2015 Nissan Murano)

“I wish the seat controls were more like the ones on our 2007. The sets went up higher. I also miss the adjustable pedals”

“The front passenger seat lacks lumbar support.”

Anonymous, FL (2015 Nissan Murano)

“Leasing this vehicle due to back problems and difficulties getting in & out of a "low" car. The height is perfect. Do not have to climb up into the SUV like some larger models. The lumbar adjustability & the NASA inspired seats are very comfortable.”

MARCIA K., TN (2015 Nissan Murano)

Anonymous, IL (2015 Nissan Murano)

“The seats are very comfortable (both front and back) and the interior is well thought out. The climate control works excellent. The only draw back, as in most vehicles, there isn't quite enough air flow for the back seat passengers.”

ELIZABETH F., NV (2015 Nissan Murano)

“Driver's seat becomes hard and uncomfortable over long distances. Harsh suspension on Platinum model....”

DANIEL E., AB (2015 Nissan Murano)

“This is our 3rd Murano, we only use it for our road trips normally 6,000 to 8,000 miles. The comfort and controls have been improved each time we purchase.”

KENNETH L., FL (2015 Nissan Murano)


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

What Owners Say

“The car is lacking some safety features (such as lane drift warning) found on the lesser cost Nissan Rogue.”

Anonymous, FL (2015 Nissan Murano)

“Drove Fords for years until they adopted the MSRP only in the K C area and wouldnt negotiate on price so I looked around and when I went to the local Nissan dealer they immediately knocked $3500 off sticker price so this 2015 Murano is the third one I bought. Fords loss!!! My gain!!”

Anonymous, CA (2015 Nissan Murano)

“I think Nissan's prices are a bit high. Since I leased this vehicle at the beginning of 2016 I think there should have been more of a discount so that I could have went up to the next model. They don't believe in loyalty. I've been with Nissan over 13 years, there should be some kind of discount for loyal customers.”

How it looks inside and out

What Owners Say

“Our car is the convertible. It is a great looking car. Unfortunately, Nissan has discontinued it.”

GEORGE L., IL (2015 Nissan Murano)

“I am a sports car driver and bought the Murano to please my wife. It is a great car but it is just not my style, this is why I answered the question that I would not buy it again. I will buy a sports car for my next car. The Murano is a great car, just not me.”

DAVID B., FL (2015 Nissan Murano)

“I like to say the Murano looks gorgeous from seven angles and terrible from four. While I wish the production vehicle had been closer to the Resonance prototype (especially the tail and some of the bold interior bits), it's still a very striking design.”
