With the hot tune i have over 100 more TQ from stock and over 40HP and boy can you feel that TQ! Great for towing my small RV and it runs up the hills now! 100 more TQ make it feel like a whole new vehicle and 18mpg towing a 5k trailer! Beat that!

It has suffered several serious problems despite being just five years old and mostly driven on-road. Cracked radiator, broken driveshaft, now leaking power steering hoses. I have owned 10-year-old cars that never had so many problems.

No significant problems yet, but just waiting to see what happens due to past brand experiences.
2003 4dr SUV 210-horsepower 3.7L V6
4-speed automatic 4WD, part-time w/low range
Catalytic converter failed after just 35k miles. Had a couple of transmission issues, although they were covered by the 7 years powertrain warranty.

The front ball joints had to be replaced. Air conditioning went out. Front brakes have a short life.

2010 4dr SUV 265-horsepower 3.5L V6

This Murano LE AWD has never failed me in 6 months of operation in variable extreme frigid conditions. I have only had to change the oil, put air in the tires, and gas it up. I wonder what another winter or two of another 20,000 miles will do long term!
2009 4dr SUV 265-horsepower 3.5L V6

Great name and well built.
2009 4dr SUV 265-horsepower 3.5L V6

Nissan has won me over. My personal experience shows them just as reliable as Honda or Toyota and ive owned four of those.

Rock solid reliable so far.

Got it in March of 2008 and we LOVE it!! Everything is perfect!It drives easily,accelerates well, passes well,parks well and as I said makes a U-turn very well on a street.We would buy another one! :)

My previous 2 SUVs were Jeeps. They had terrible reliability. Always in the shop. Nissan has a great rep.

It seems to be well made, with no needed repairs so far.

Nissan has less-than-stellar reliability ratings from Consumer Reports.
2007 4dr SUV 245-horsepower 3.5L V6
CVT FWD
Some concern over reliability of CVT from reading online horror stories of prior year models. So far no issues and Nissan has extended the CVT warranty. Minor issue is the sometimes squeal of brakes on backing.

See CVT: how much is *that* going to be to fix?
2006 4dr SUV 245-horsepower 3.5L V6

Seems to be a lot of issues amongs Murano owners with the CVT, if out of warranty, will cost over $7000 for replacement. Issues with driver seat frame breaking as well.

Having issued with the CVT. I am very concerned with the reliability of the NEW style trans. This is the main reason why I have became a member, to find out more info on this.
