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! full 2010 Nissan Murano review

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. full 2007 Nissan Murano review

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. full 2006 Nissan Murano review

Its a Toyota, simple as that. They are built to last. full 2010 Toyota review
2010 4dr Sedan 106-horsepower 1.5L I4
5-speed manual FWD
I am a stickler on maintenance and was very disappointed on the driver side drive shaft seal leaking twice! I was not given any reason why this would happened but so far since the last repair it seems all is fine. I change my own oil and was able to notice the problem way before it was serious as I notice an oozing of manual transmission oil around this drive shaft. I have not been able to find this is a common problem though. full 2010 Toyota review

This car uses the tried and true 1NZ-FE engine and 2nd generation of the C50 transmission, both of which can take a licking and keep on ticking. It enjoys the typical and legendary Toyota legacy of reliability. full 2007 Toyota review
