Just went online and found a 08 highlander 4x4 with 18k miles in weatherford texas for $19943 at a toyota dealer. This is an internet price so if you call 888-819-4281 mention that you want the internet sales dept. If you have time you can find deals like this with a little effort. Still under warranty and with toyotas I wouldn't even get the extended warranty -- probably never come close to getting your $ back.
Also found an 08 murano S awd with 18k miles at Bankston Nissan dark blue in Irving for $19994.
You can shop from home and avoid the dealers laughing in your face. Only deal with internet departments and you save easy.

Price is too high...obviously it's a buyers market so be picky and don't be afraid to low ball the seller...epecially dealerships.
Don't be scared about buying a used Murano, keep in people only come to sites like this with probs...there are thousands that don't have to cause their car is fine.
My research showed that AWD is way more likely to have trans problems.
I just bought an 05 with only 32K miles and I paid $13,950. So your deal is $8,000 more for 5 less thousand miles and 2 years. In my opinion it's not worth it. Rule of thumb is $1,000 for every 10K miles. Plus 05 and 07 is same across board with very minor interior changes.
#9 of 36 Contemplating a used Murano at some point - issues to be aware of?
Jul 10, 2009 (4:22 am)
Hi there. I am just starting the process of looking around for my next vehicle when my Impala lease runs out. I still have almost a year on this lease, so I am in absolutely no hurry. What I have in mind is a midsize crossover/SUV, but my budget is likely to be very limited.
I've liked the looks of the Murano for some years, and finally the other day I drove one and I absolutely LOVED it. I know purchasing a brand new one is utterly out of the question. Leasing one may be a possibility, but I'd have to think long and hard before I went that route.
Were I to contemplate buying one that was three or four years old with say 40-50K miles on it, that is actually getting down into a price range I can afford. Are there any common issues/ problems to watch out for one one of that age? From everything I've looked at they seem to have outstanding overall dependability ratings.
Many thanks for any input.

The asking prices for used muranos are outrageous. Don't know what they actually sell for.

I tend to agree! I have seen some crazy prices even for used ones. They can't be THAT good.
#12 of 36 Dealer Asking Prices
Jul 28, 2009 (8:56 am)
I am currently at the end of my 2006 Murano SL (November 15), and I am also looking to purchase an 06 Murano. Unfortunately, buying my lease is a big NO NO, so I am in search of someone elses off-lease Murano. I also agree with other posts, that asking prices are high for this vehicle. To the point that I am starting to look in other directions, perhaps a Nissan Pathfinder instead. That being said, I can say that I am not surprised by the asking prices. I leave in Tampa, FL and this vehicle has been everything I have come to expect from Japan's big three. For all of those out there worrying about their reliabilty, I can assure you do not have anything to fear. I have been leasing for the past 15 years and this is my third lease with Nissan. This is the first time, I have ever leased a vehicle past 36 months and well beyond the basic warranty for both time and miles. I only did it because it was a Nissan. As with all my previous leases, this vehicle never saw the inside of a repair shop. I never purchase extended warranties and I only lease/own Hondas/Acuras, Nissans, and Toyotas. Sorry, I would love to say the same about american companies, but I learned the hard way during my younger driving days of Ford/GM cars. As an american, I am amazed everytime I see comercials of Ford/GM comparing its quality to that of Toyota. One would say, how did it come to this? Simple, while the Japanese was making very reliable cars to break into the US market, our CEO's were looking for ways to squeeze every penny we earned by making unreliable cars. They deserve everythig is happening to them. Sorry, I wonder off a bit... I am not saying that these japanese automakers are perfect, but one thing their cars are is reliable!

I suggest you check out the first heading in the Murano forum. Lots of problems with the CVT.
#15 of 36 2006 Murano

I drove a 2006 Murano and I loved it, but after reading some of the discussions here I am thinking I shouldn't buy it. The car has a lot of miles on it - 68K, but it is in my price range and appears to be in great shape. Any advise? Debra

A 2006 Murano with 68K on it would give me pause. I'd look for a 2007 with a lot less miles and a very careful going over, particularly with regards to the head gasket and valve cover as far as leaks. Observe tailpipe emissions carefully. Avoid the AWD models and stick with the FWD models.
