Not true- Nissan recommends 91. I use 87 due to cost though

After reading about transmission issues on some consumer reviews, I am wondering if purchasing a 2004 Murano with 44,000 is a good move? Any feedback would be great. My second choice is a 2006 Pathfinder with the same mileage.

I used 87 for my 06 Murano SL-AWD and got 23 mpg (most of my driving is highway). The few times I used 91 was because the service station was out of regular - and I hardly noticed a difference. I traded it in at 60,000 miles for an '09 Murano which seems to be doing just as well using 87. Love that car!!

I still have my 1997 Pathfinder with 120,000 miles! In 2006 we wanted to trade up for a new Pathfinder and decided instead on a Murano after the test drive. The CVT transmission was super smooth and we never had any problems with it, though I've heard some complaints about earlier models. We just traded up the Murano for a new one but still have the 1997 Pathfinder - mostly for hauling stuff from the home store or garden center. It does 70 mph fine on the highway but there is not much pick-up if I want to pass someone. I am sure the 2006 model has a better engine and more upgrades. I personally find the Murano to be a sportier ride but you wouldnt want to use it to haul stuff or go offroad. Check the car history of both vehicles and then determine what you want from the vehicle - that should help you decide. Just my 2 cents.

my manual says to use premium, but I've been told that in CO the higher altitude makes that unnecessary, so I'm the idiot who buys mid grade. We were just in the mountains this past weekend and on our trip home got 24. something mpg. Best ever! Usually it's 20.4 or so.

When the manual say's premium, it means the 90 Octane, not the Super Premium 92-93 Octane.
