2015 Nissan Murano Platinum AWD
2015 Nissan Murano Platinum AWD provides ample cargo room, easy drive, better gas mileage and excellent seats. CVT provides better power delivery no jerky shifts. A red Murano color not at its best, visibility obstruction by rear edge hood making it difficult while parking and maneuvering. 360 degree Around View Monitor do good job remain non-operational at highway speed enforcing driver to rely on blind spot monitoring.

Cabin gets noisier when power retractable shade remains open, noise at times remains prevalent ensure to check if doors are properly closed. Navigation system works poorly discarding driver's destination input.

Murano provides all day comfort with better cargo. EPA remains 22-23 mpg. Around View Monitor provides ample bird's eye view making parking simple. With slow winter better use of heated steering, remote start was a good choice.

In long drive we face issues like vague steering, slow chasis response while cornering, excessive body roll and glovebox is too deep to check oil level. CVT function is ok, there seems annoying race between engine and transmission when big power is required.
