If you’re looking for information on a newer Nissan Murano, we’ve published an updated review: 2019 Nissan Murano Review
I recently got back behind the wheel of our long-term 2015 Nissan Murano. Oh, Murano — how I’ve missed you.
Just as the backup camera became the must-have tech that every automaker implemented several years ago (and is finally becoming mandated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in all new cars starting in 2018), a 360-degree monitor — such as Nissan’s Around View Monitor — should be the next piece of technology to become an industry standard, in my opinion. I use the forward-facing camera multiple times a day when parking, and it’s incredibly helpful to see all sides of the car when pulling out of my cramped garage in the morning. This is a feature that I really missed when I was driving other cars, and I am really happy to have it back, even just for a few weeks! See the 2015 Nissan Murano models for sale near you
Steering Wheel Woes
Temps here in Atlanta are freezing at the moment, and I wish the Murano was equipped with a heated steering wheel. Since we opted for the midlevel SL model, we have heated front seats (which I am very thankful for), but not a heated steering wheel. In order to get that feature, we would have had to choose the pricier Platinum model. However, since our SL already had a price tag of $40,655 with shipping, we felt like we had reached the maximum amount that most people would want to spend on a Nissan (when you cross the $40,000 threshold, you’re in Infiniti territory). However, I think the lack of a heated steering wheel is most upsetting to me because the Murano feels so luxurious in every other respect. In fact, I tend to forget I’m in a nonluxury car when I’m driving it.
The last time I drove our long-term 2015 Nissan Murano was over the summer, so I’m looking forward to seeing how it handles in winter weather. Find a Nissan Murano for sale
