You are in the Nissan Murano
What is this discussion about?
Nissan Murano, SUV
Apr 26, 2009 (5:39 am)
Just traded off my 2004 Murano for a 2009. Before I traded in my 2004, the grille started to bubble. The 2004 was way out of warranty, but I thought I would give Nissan a call at 1-800-647-7261 to ask what they would do if any thing about this problem. To make a long story short, the grille was replaced 3 months ago, Nissan replaced the grille at no charge to me, without any problems.

Thanks for your note. Your silver Murano with the black interior is really sharp. My previous Pilots were all silver and we just wanted a change.
I just received an email from a friend that sells Nissan's in Helsinki. He said the TV program evaluators were surprised by the Murano's quality and ride and equalled it with Mercedes, BMW, and Audi. The price for a Murano in Helsinki is about 70,000 euros.
Just thought the foreign note would be of interest.
Cheers and happy driving.

Funny.I never drove Audi.BMW-yes-hated it.Very uncomfy car-reminds Infinity-only worse.Mercedes-450-I drove several times-nothing special.O.K.at the most.Nissan Murano feels like Mercedes-agree-which does not compliment either.paid for my-LE with gadgets 37 with tax.70,000EU-3 times US price.interesting why-sounds like Israel or Russia.price fixing on government level.I any case-I personally find it a collection of flaws.It is a frustrating experience.specially my last experience with navigation system which was telling me that i was 19 miles away from my destination point after i have arrived , after it took me on a 25 miles extra trip through 4 tolls to the same destination we used several times prior.And that after a trip to a town which according to the same navigation-does not exist.Thanks god-nobody was sitting in the back-because if somebody is sitting there-forget about being able to check blind spots.It is quite a challenge even without passengers-unless one constatntly manipulates the mirrors.

I don't know if you got an answer in the meantime. If thought my Murano (2009) should show that, as several rentals and an Equinox I had for business show the song and artist when the station has RDS (but is also depends on the station). I tried the same stations that had it on the Murano and it only gave the name of the station.
Perhaps this is a RED "Lite". Cheers
#482 of 686 purchasing new murano
Apr 29, 2009 (7:30 pm)
Nissan is offering cash back or 2.9% financing. I have a deal on the table for a SL with leather, premium pkg, tech pkg, dual moonroof, car mats, cargo mat, door sill lights roof rails. I have gotten the dealer down to 32,132 not including tax etc with that added total price would be 32185. I made a 30,000 proposal which they would not take. What is reasonable?

I purchased my SL 2009 last February and got everything you listed except the cargo mat for an out the door price of $33,500. But I also got 4 free oil changes and lifetime car washes (maybe not so free considering your price).
#485 of 686 Performance Tires
May 04, 2009 (2:59 pm)
My friend, the Muranophile, said that all LE's come with performance tires that wear out fast. I had this problem with other higher end cars and DO NOT wanna do this again. That being said, I want a Murano with leather, roof but not necessarily the NAV and/or DVD.
Is the tire thingie true? And if so what are my alternatives?

Don't know how they wear but could cost $250 per installed and balanced. Ask the dealer how much a set costs. 20" tires aren't cheap but if your paying 35k for a car you've got the money for new shoes from time to time.

I don't know about the tire wear of the Performance Tires on the LE models but I heard earlier in the year that some of the LE owners with 20" rims were having vibration problems. I have the SL (AWD) model and haven't had any problem with tire wear or vibrations but then again the SL model dosen't have 20" rims.
