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
Nissan Murano Brand Reputation: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2010 4dr SUV 265-horsepower 3.5L V6

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
2003 4dr SUV 245-horsepower 3.5L V6
CVT AWD
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

Toyotas are reputed to be bulletproof and that was our experience with a 1994 Previa minivan see full Toyota Highlander review
2007 4dr SUV 208-horsepower 3.3L V6 Hybrid

This is my 3rd Toyota/Lexus. What else can I say, they are great cars/appliances. Although not a styling icon, Toyota/Lexus knows how to build what most people want/need in a reliable good quality vehicle. see full Toyota Highlander review
2006 4dr SUV 215-horsepower 3.3L V6
5-speed automatic FWD
Not much to say, Toyota has made great products. So many people I talk to discuss the fact that they have over 150K miles of maintenance only repairs. see full Toyota Highlander review
2006 4dr SUV 208-horsepower 3.3L V6 Hybrid

Previous Toyota SUV lasted 25+ years with great performance and low maintenance. The new vehicle was the first affordable hybrid SUV available to the public. see full Toyota Highlander review
2004 4dr SUV 230-horsepower 3.3L V6
5-speed automatic FWD
Well...up until the issues with cars accelerating on their own their reputation was untarnished. Still...very few cars exhibit this trait so I still would buy another one. see full Toyota Highlander review
