Love love my Nissan Murano Ti

published

Bought our TI brand new at Xmas 2011, and just love it. Love the leather interior, panorama roof, electric boot, the stereo just pumps, love the quietness on the road, heaps of leg room, love the memory seats, stylish interior, and the look of the outside is up there with the Lexus.
Look, feel, drive, stylish, stereo, so roomy for your legs, great boot size.

Good SUV : Bad dealership and customer service

published

I purchased 2013 TI in September 2014 from Magic Nissan Mellvile Perth. Near new 11000 km one owner ex nissan Australia company car. The only issue I had was the SAT NAV didn't work the reason being the software had never been loaded. Long story short , dealer wanted me to spend an additional $400.00 to update the software to make it functional.Unexceptable, response from the dealership and after an exhauseable email exchange the dealership and Nissan Australia Paid 50%each.To put right what should have been sorted before the sale was finalised.
The suv other featuers work well, power boot , is handy, power front seat also an good idea.The engine has plenty of power, and is enconnomical .

Only owned second hand Murano 06/07 for a few months - so far- air conditioning not working, electric windows stick, uses motor oil, and finally back diff buggered and front pirelli tyres $385 ea are delaminating. Apparently to do with auto 4wd sensor as tyres may not be correct size? Motor is strong though. Also rear shocks and brakes need replacing. Citrus fruit.

Bought a 2006 murano with 110,000 km. Power steering fluid leaked and got it fixed. Now done 140,000km Oil cooler hose started to leak , crack in the alternator fan, crack in cv joints, the gas out of the boot lid needed replacing and a few other things needed to be fixed. Car looks great and sporty but no power in cvt engine.

Poor performance by Nissan

published

I bought a second hand Murano 07 it had 68,000ks Ive had it for a year now 106,000ks and the heat exchange failed costing me $3000.00 to repair, cant by the heat exchange new only second hand. A week later the gear box shat itself. Nissan said sorry cant help you except $8500.00 for new gearbox only option second hand gear box at $4500.00 so thank you Nissan for making components that are rubbish.
Comfy car to drive heavy on fuel
not durable considering they claim the engine to be unbreakable, it's a shame the transmission isn't

Number Five

Picking up our new Murano ST next week which will be the fifth one over eight years. Have had two early model STs followed by two Ti models. Change them over before 60k and have not had a spot of trouble with any of them. Great deals on the ST meant that we couldn't justify the extra 11k for the few extras on the Ti model this time around. A pleasure to drive.

My best car... so far!

published

Having read the other reviews I felt compelled to share my views. I bought my 2nd Murano TI2 in May 2010 and have never been happier. I have not found fault with my Murano's. The eye-catching styling (which other manufacturers now seem to be following), the quality, engine, CVT, smoothness, quietness and a host of inclusions which are only optional on other vehicles makes the Murano absolute value for money. Also, for its size, the Murano is not excessively thirsty when it comes to fuel economy (in my view). I can't wait to see the new model Murano which I believe will be released in late 2014.
Eye-catching styling, quality, great engine and transmission (CVT), smoothness, quietness and a host of inclusions.

In the USA the transmission has a 120000 mile warranty, i'm not sure about the uk and Ireland, but its worth contacting nissan and pointing this out to them, as a murano is a murano is a murano, no matter what country it is in. good luck.

Never, ever buy a Nissan

published

We purchased a brand new Nissan Murano Ti in 2009, and have just had to pay $9000 in repair fees for engine parts that have worn out. As we were 3 weeks out of warranty, Nissan refused to assist in any way, leaving us with a massive bill to pay and a dodgy car.
Fancy gadgets
Nissan provide extremely poor customer service, and have a complete lack of accountability for faulty products

My 3rd Murano!!

I have just taken delivery of my 3rd murano. I have to say that I am a true advocate of this car. I have been very happy with my 2 previous vehicles also. I replace so frequently as I do around 50,000km per year. The murano just eats up the highway & is a very comfortable and capable vehicle.

I love mine too. 3 years old and not a rattle or squeak. Its so quiet and smooth and its not your typical SUV " box on wheels " design. Only thing that annoys me is the 6 monthly service interval.

Beautifully appointed

published

Bought a new Ti in 1010 September. It's a very comfortable and well equipped interior, and a unique external style that make it look and feel agile.

The 3.5 V6 is very quiet and the transmission is smooth, though I do hope for better fuel economy, which I am getting 13l/100km around town.
Great interior and ride
Hope for better fuel economy

Murano

My battery has died on my vehicle. The vehicle has been standing for sometime without being driven. We tried opening the car door manually with a key but it does not want to open. Is there any other way that the door can be opened so that we can jump start the battery

Murano

I am looking at buying a 2010 Murano with 119,000 on the clock very clean and has all the bells and whistles on it , he wants 12,500 , is that a fair price and also I've read a few problems with the CVT transmission ,any advice ?

Hi Mark, mine is a 2013 Ti (facelifted model) and I paid $12,500 from a reputable dealer (granted, it had 130k on it). I think $12,500 is a bit steep, for a 2010 I'd be paying around $10,500. For the money, you can't really beat a Murano. I know everyone loves hybrids these days but it's still nice to have a big stonking 3.5L V6. So many opinions about the CVT.. I've never had an issue with mine but I have a friend who has an X-Trail and has done close to 200,000kms and he's getting concerned. I've heard that CVTs don't like towing so maybe check if it's done some hard work or just been the standard around town SUV.

Olivia

Hi Mark. I think 12,500 is a bit steep but that is pretty low kms for the age of the car. Definitely try to get them down a bit. CVT transmissions are definitely less reliable than a regular automatic or a manual, but the 2010 Murano has the X-Tronic CVT which is known as one of the best CVTs out there. Ideally you’ll want a car that hasn’t been off-roading and hasn’t been used for towing much.

When you go to test drive it make sure the gear shifts (between D, P, and R) are smooth, for example when you put it into drive you don’t feel any clunking. Also ensure that when you’re driving and you step off the gas (but don’t apply the break) you don’t feel the car pull back at all. Both can be a sign of a wearing transmission.

Overall the Murano will definitely be a bit pricier than many other SUVs because they were so ahead as far as design and technology, but I would definitely try and see if you can negotiate a bit. I think $10k-$11k would be a more fair price.

Murano

Hi all, Im looking at buying a 2010 Nissan Murano Ti. I'm getting mixed opinions from car salesmen. Are they expensive to run? Common CVT issues? I'm just after some advise.
Thanks in advance.

The Muranos have one of the best CVTs out there, but CVTs in general are less reliable than a standard auto.

Can be expensive to run but as expected from a 3.5l V6 4WD

Hi Belinda, mine is a 2013 but I love it. I have also heard mixed reviews about the CVT but have never had any issues, I think it would really be dependant on KMS though. Mine has a 135000kms on the clock (im in Australia) but I plan to sell it before 170,000 as that's when I've heard issues with the gearbox can arise. Can be thirsty on the petrol but depends how hard you drive it.. they have pretty decent acceleration for a big car. They are super affordable second hand and for the money I think they are a great buy but depends on the KMS.
