#1 of 35 Murano Questions
Jul 25, 2007 (4:21 pm)
I am interested in a Murano, I am currently driving a 2006 Grand Cherokee. I see most of my questions are answered by the brochure and other information found online. I am wondering thought about a few things.
Where is the door status information shown, e.g. when a door is ajar where does that show up and does it show which door or the hatch is open?
Are all of the controls on the steering wheel as well as the door window/lock controls illuminated?
How easy it it to use the control stick to move through the different screens on the LCD?
On my Grand Cherokee I have a system called ESP that basically is a roll stability control system to make sure that the vehicle doesn't roll over, does the Murano have a system like this?
Any information that you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

The door ajar shows up on the monitor and it's just says door open and it shows which side the door is open on.If it's the hatch it says hatch.
You know I've had this thing for months and have'nt noticed if they controls on the stearing wheel are lit.I don't think they are now that I think about it.
The joy stick is easy for me to use but some people say it's to touchy.
The Murano has stablity control but thats an option not standard as far as I know.
I bought a 07 SL AWD in late Feb for 34,700 OTD and have been happy with it so far.MPG using 93 octane (just what I like) is around 20.5 with 80 to 85% city.The best I've got was 21.6 the worse was 15.2 with the dealer tank.8,000 trouble free miles so far.

Thanks for the information, that helps me out a lot. Is 93 Octane the only type of gas that it will run on, or will regular unleaded suffice?

I think the steering controls ARE lit. I remember they weren't on my Dodge and was happy these are.
I don't know why everybody says about 93 Octane, the manual clearly says you can use Regular.... I use regular.
Mine is an SL. I think it is SL, I know it isn't the plain S and it's not the SE, so that leaves SL, correct?
I went from a Grand Caravan to this last year, and I really enjoy driving my Murano. I felt like I drove a bus with the van and this feels sporty to me.

No you can use 87 gas.It recommends premium BUT it also says you can use the cheaper stuff.On the gas lid it says for best proformence use premium.I'll have to look tonight and see if my controls are lit.For some reason I have never noticed?

#7 of 35 Turning in a 04 Murano Lease
Jul 29, 2007 (7:48 am)
Carman, I have a 2004 murano sl and the lease expires 5/2008, so I have 10 months to go. My payment is 349. It is leased through NMAC. I have spoken to one dealer about getting out of the lease and leasing a new 2007. He told me that he has to add $3490.00 onto the the 2007 so I can get out of the lease, is this true. Just some more info I have 35,800 miles it is AWD.
#9 of 35 higher temperature readings
Sep 18, 2007 (12:34 pm)
I have a 07 Murano. I have noticed that the outside temperature readings are usually a few degrees higher than they supposed to, even when the car is parked in the shade for several hours. I want to know if anyone has experienced the same problem. It usually shows the temperature a few degrees warmer. Can it be calibrated? Is it normal in this vehicle?

When I first get in the car it is always high. I've seen it as high as 105 I think. It was about 97 out that day. It takes a min to adjust to the real temp. I like when the radio says the Temp and the gauge in the car is dead on. I've noticed that alot in mine. I noticed one day I went through the car wash and the temp reading was in the mid 70s but it was close to 90 out. Once I get driving for a few it evens out to the right temp
