About Nissan Murano

The Murano is a crossover SUV based on the Nissan Altima’s front-wheel drive platform. The interior is light and airy, with upscale touches. The front seats are supportive and comfortable. The dashboard is separated from the instrument panel, which has orange-backlit gauges. Large doors make it simple to get in and out. The front visibility is good; the rear visibility has blind spots in the corners, but the large mirrors help compensate. The Murano was available with either front- or all-wheel drive from 2003 to 2007. Initially, two trim levels were available: the entry-level SL and the sporty SE. The Murano SE came with a sport suspension with firmer front and rear springs, manual shift mode, different alloy wheels, a dark silver lower front bumper, and HID headlights. For 2005, an entry-level S trim level was added.

The Murano’s reliability is below average, and many problems are expensive to repair. Electrical and CVT problems are relatively common. A leaking transfer case is a common complaint, and the repair is costly. A bad camshaft position sensor is frequently the cause of the Check Engine light with codes P0340 or P0345. The sensor is inexpensive and simple to replace.

The only engine option is a 245-horsepower 3.5L DOHC V6. The VQ engine is the same as in the V6 Altima, Maxima, and Pathfinder. The Murano is distinguished from other V6 SUVs by its only transmission option, a continuously variable transmission. A CVT’s main component is a steel belt that runs between two different-sized pulleys. Driving a vehicle equipped with a CVT is a little different: it’s slower to begin with, and as you accelerate, the gear ratio changes gradually, without shifts.

The 3.5L V6 engine in the Murano lacks a timing belt in favor of a timing chain. Unless there is a problem with the timing chain, it does not need to be replaced. A noisy or stretched timing chain, on the other hand, is not uncommon in this engine at high mileage or due to a lack of regular oil changes. The cost of replacing the timing chain is high.

For an all-wheel drive V6-powered SUV, the Murano’s fuel economy is not bad. On regular gasoline, the 2003-2005 Murano with AWD achieves 18 mpg city and 23 mpg highway (13.1/10.2 L/100 km). On premium gasoline, the 2007 AWD Murano is rated at 17/23 mpg city/highway (13.8/10.2 liters per 100 km).
