2003 Nissan Murano SE 3.5 gasoline

Extremely expensive in repairs and maintenance. Powertrain seems to be underspec'ed. Take this comment seriously, as it will cost you to own this car. Over $10K in repairs over the span of 5 years. Very reliable up until about 150K. Past the 150K mark, major breakdowns started happening. I would not recommend owning a Nissan past 150K. I used three different dealers.
Very comfortable ride for long trips. Relatively good on gas, low RPMs on the highway.
Nice options - most of the power options lasted past the 150K mark.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
