#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

We just took delivery of our 2007 FWD with the touring package. Love it! My wife is short and has trouble closing the hatch. Does anyone know of some assistance device for this? I envision the handhold being replaced with a short, maybe 8 to 10 inch, retractable strap. Grabbing the easy to pull down strap would provide more leverage to be able to get the hatch down where it can be handled. And, of course, the strap would retract where it would not interfere with the closing.

I have been told that since the transmission is a CVT your do not need to have a gear selection for 1 to 4,5,6 speeds just D for forward. Apparently some drivers need to use the shift; although each shift makes to difference. Correct me if I am wrong.

2006 Nissan Murano S; Has anyone gone any distance on dirt, and / or poor roads, not horse trails, but roads qualified as 4 wheel drive vehicles only. If so, what was your experience?
If such roads were navigated, were there any vehicle failures or breakdowns? And if so, were the problems related to the vehicle, or inflicted issues, (ie; rocks, logs etc.)_?
The reason I ask these questions is simple. We are considering moving from an urban area of Nevada to an area considered...... well... rural. Real rural. The nearest town, Eureka, is 17 miles west, and everything is graded dirt, and right now, is covered in 6-12" of snow and ice. The snow and ice is of no real consequence, as the cable chains provide absolute grip.
My concern is the navigation during the non" snow months, with mud, creek crossings and sand / silt pots. I have seen multiple posts on a very wide spectrum of Murano issues and have commented on several, but right now, I do not consider 34 miles of off road use as experience, and any further information would be greatly appreciated.

Once the vehicle is in DRIVE, that's all you have to do! The Murano makes driving an absolute pleasure. CVT is sensational and is one of the reason the Murano gets about as good fuel economy as a $50,000 Lexus RX 350 Hybrid!

I always suggest people to CALL YOUR DEALER and ask these questions, as opposed to the general public. A reputable Nissan dealer can usually advise you in these regards. First off, the Murano is one of the most reliable vehicles on earth, and will not just break down - Nissans usually do not do that. Here' s an article from the Australian which may shed some light on your musing. ">link title
