Our long-term test of the Nissan Murano is coming to its conclusion, thanks to a large portion of long road trips. In fact, the crossover in the Pacific sun shades is very suitable for long trips because of its excellent seats, ample cargo space, easy driving character and consumption decent fuel. A couple of the staff members came to defend the continuously variable automatic transmission, which has generally been the subject of significant criticism.
After a long weekend of driving week around Chicago, one of the editors note that “the CVT allows the delivery of syrupy power, discreet staff seems perfect for this pod-luxury”. test director Don Sherman agreed, saying: “. For all the whiners CVT, realize that this is an ideal for most homeowners who do not need or want abrupt changes in your solution turns daily” In other news, with the rear seat folded down, the smooth ride, very spacious Murano was the perfect pick for 48 cases of Girl Scout cookies. Mmm. . . Tagalongs.
The red Murano spent some time in the office and reinforced the feelings that our color choice was perhaps not the best. Gee, who could imagine that orange could not have been a perfect paint color for a great family vehicle? And on the subject of visibility, a driver said the sudden jump in rear end cover “hinders the vision forward, making parking maneuvers much less safe.” It’s a good thing 360 degree Around View Monitor Nissan will make your job as well. It is inoperable at highway speeds, however, leading some drivers to rely more than usual on the monitors blind spot because the C pillars are “an enormity.”
The panoramic sunroof amplifies the feeling of interior space, but helps keep the quietest cabin anyone, especially if the retractable power shade is open, allowing the sound waves bounce off the glass. A sound driver as common path he thought the door was not properly closed are. Moreover, the navigation system discards the entry of a leading link several times during a trip to North Carolina; He said his iPhone provides better routing. And what would be an update of our Murano long term without new complaints concerning the transmission? Said one driver. “The exhaust boom encouraged CVT reverberates annoying through speeds the vehicle cabin 30 to 40 kilometers per hour and speeds engine between 1000 and 1100 rpm”
As usual, nothing has really gone wrong with this Nissan, which has been extremely easy to care for, is not always the case with our long termers. Since the last time we checked in, the Murano has twice across the bay from our distributor for scheduled service maintenance. 25,000 miles service costs R $ 59.34 and not more than a dollar cost of three of our last four visits. The service costs a little over-30K $ 87.58, because the air filter cabin was replaced. With winter finally defeated, that has changed to winter tires for social Bridgestone for all seasons. (Winter Yokohama Rubber has played a very important role in making the Murano a cold companion time smoothly even on ice, white output.)
Sometimes we had some trouble linking our mobile devices to car audio for transmission. Also, when we change an iPhone connected with Bluetooth, from music to a podcast, the main Nissan unit continued to show the artist and song title that previously had been listening. Radiolab definitely not Motörhead. Fortunately, this is limited to only a couple of examples.
They continue to earn miles on long trips. Since our January update, the Murano led us to Chicago (twice); Indianapolis; Atlanta; Fayetteville, North Carolina; and Traverse City, Michigan. No doubt the late 5000 miles away is the Murano cross another status line or three.
