Expert Quotes:

“Pushbutton start is a neat gimmick, but it’s just that”

“Fully loaded...a Murano will come close to topping $40,000.”
Car and Driver

All the reviews researched by TheCarConnection.com’s car experts talked about the 2009 Nissan Murano’s extensive list of standard and optional gear.

Edmunds.com said the list of standard features on even the base model includes full power accessories, automatic climate control, “a tilt/telescoping steering wheel, split/folding rear seat, a trip computer and a six-speaker sound system with a six-CD changer and auxiliary audio jack.” The upmarket SL version adds a power driver seat, a power rear seat, and steering-wheel audio controls, Edmunds adds. And the LE version gets the most standard stuff; it has a power liftgate, heated side mirrors, 20-inch alloy wheels, leather seats, a power passenger seat, satellite radio, Bluetooth, and a Bose audio system. Cars.com adds that the base model’s cloth seats “are manual, with six-way driver and four-way passenger adjustments.”

As far as the options go, Autoblog recommends the rear-seat DVD player, but thinks the standard “pushbutton start is a neat gimmick, but it's just that. Same goes for the power open and close liftgate.” They disliked the touchscreen on base models that controls the radio: “We were forced to plod through screen after screen of data using numerous buttons just to change radio stations.” Popular Mechanics noted that with the navigation system, you also get an “audio system with 9.3GB of music storage.”

Car and Driver cautions ordering all the options. “Fully loaded...a Murano will come close to topping $40,000.” They also note all-wheel drive can be ordered on base models for just $1,600.

TheCarConnection.com’s editors also drove the Murano, and liked the available aluminum trim (there’s also wood trim in some Muranos). And for our money, the rearview camera’s an unnecessary option, even for paranoiac parents.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
