Maybe I'm not undestanding something, but I've driven several Lexus loaner cars that have the push button start, and I've always remembered to push the button to turn the car off. You still have to do that one step, sort of like you did with the older starter-type key. The only difference is when you start the car, as long as you have the key fob anywhere near or on you, you just depress the brake and push the start button.
And, also, there's got to be a door chime that would warn you of something just like if you leave your keys in the ignition of a regular ignition-type starter, i.e, you turn the car off, but don't remove the key yet, you open the door to get out. You would get the warning chimes going off.

I was so disappointed when they changed the body style for the RX for 2010. I was seriously considering it until I saw the new design. I think you're going to fall in love with the Murano when you drive it. The continuously variable transmission just makes it the smoothest ride ever. It does have some significant blind spots in my opinion, but my 2006 did as well, so it wasn't really a deal breaker for me. The LE just has all of the awesome equipment.... so comparable to the lexus and yes, so much cheaper. Have fun, I think you're going to love it!

I don't have an IPOD, I have a Sansa MP3 player. Can I play audio books from my MP3 player on my car audio system? I have only found the head phone jacks and the IPOD jack.
#638 of 686 Navigation system frustration
Feb 17, 2010 (9:33 am)
Hi there, I have an 09 LE and, for the most part, love it. I'm continually frustrated, however, that the car has to be stopped to enter anything in the nav system. I find it completely ridiculous that, unlike any other nav system I've ever used, the passenger isn't able to use the system while someone else drives. Is there an override for this?????

There is a mod you can find on another forum which describes adding an override switch. I don't know if we're allowed to mention other website's forums so I'll say part of the name is the female singer from the Velvet Underground.

#641 of 686 CR Murano Reliability
Mar 09, 2010 (2:35 pm)
I found this quite interesting, today I purchase my yearly CR Mag for new car ratings and reviews for each vehicle by an automaker and came away scratching my head on the Murano!
Between the 2009 and now the 2010 issue, the Murano was reduced from better than average reliability to just average reliability despite the fact that except for one category, the Murano got all perfect much better than average marks?? I don't understand how that works?
I also noticed that as a brand, Nissan lowered in overall reliability as a brand? that doesn't make sense to me except for the fact that all their SUVs and Pick-up all are only avg in reliablity and seem to have many black marks on their records!

It is confusing the way CR does their "dots". The "dots" for individual categories are not a rating in relation to average. So a red dot for "Engine major" doesn't mean "above average" - it just means "good". But then CR uses the same "dot" system when predicting the overall vehicle's reliability - in that case a red dot does mean "much better than average".
It's really just that new vehicles on average have less problems than older vehicles - so the average for a 2009 vehicle is pretty close to perfect, while the average for older model years will have more problems. Think of it this way - if a perfect reliability score is 100, the average score for 2009 cars might be 95, while the average for 2006 vehicles might be 80. So a score of 85 would be below average for a 2009 vehicle but above average for a 2006. So just because the 2009 Murano had good scores doesn't mean its scores were better than average - because the average 2009 vehicle is going to have a good score.

Hi, I just got a brand new SL 2010 yesterday and really confused about the power seat. This SL is fully loaded with Nav. I have 2 buttons underneath the steering column that have seat with an arrow on them. I have no clue what they do! And I can't figure out how to set them to remember my and my husbands settings.
Haven't called the dealer yet, but I'm have a bad feeling that this car is not equipped with power seats, cause the SET button is not there Does anyone know what those 2 buttons are? Thanks!

I believe the two buttons low on the dash left of the steering column are for raising each side of the split rear seats if the seat backs have been lowered.
The SL does have an 8 way power driver seat. (Controls are on the seat down on the left side). The front passenger seat is a 4 way power seat if the Leather package is on the car. (according to Nissan's specification chart at http://www.nissanusa.com/murano/specifications.html)
Are you looking for the Memory seat function? That is only on the LE trim level.
