I have owned Datsun/Nissan vehicles for 30 years now. This is only my 4th vehicle because the quality provides me with the reliability I expect from a manufacturer. I have logged over 860K miles on my 4 vehicles. see full Nissan Murano review

I think Nissan has an image of a small car company, and some of its offering (Cube,Juke) seem zany! There had also been bad press on how they had handled CVT issues until 2007. Nissan USA seems to have discouraged/disappointed too many valuable customers! see full Nissan Murano review
2009 4dr SUV 265-horsepower 3.5L V6
CVT FWD
On-going reliability that is a step down from competitors. see full Nissan Murano review

The image of the car is not all that desirable, the introduction of lesser models means that there are too many to be "tricked out" see full Nissan Murano review

The FJ40 was a workhorse for years, this update should be similar. It is unapologetically built as a utility vehicle that is supposed to be useful in un-paved areas of the country. see full Toyota FJ Cruiser review
