2009 Nissan Murano

2009 Nissan Murano

Email Picture
To signal, I suppose, the model-year face-lift, Nissan designers gave the 2009 Murano a tensed chrome brow, a fierce furrowing that is, actually, quite a bit more aggressive than anything else in the Nissan garage

I would like to give my Nissan Murano test vehicle an Advil, or Tylenol, or perhaps I should Simoniz its hood with that HeadOn stuff that you apply directly to the forehead. This thing looks like it’s suffering from the world’s worst migraine.

 

Nissan‘s new CVT software works a lot better. The step-off acceleration is respectable, and the passing-speed response is all but indistinguishable from an automatic’s kick-down passing behavior. Once throttle demand slackens, the CVT quickly falls into a mellow overdrive mode. Other cars with CVT sound as if they are going to hock up a lung at highway speeds.

Have Nissan product planners bracketed the Murano out of its reason for being? No wonder it has a headache.
