Model Highlights

The 2007 Nissan Murano is an excellent SUV/crossover for those folks looking to make a bold styling statement, and who enjoy driving. Where many SUVs make you feel like you are piloting a truck with a cap over its bed, the Murano's ride is more akin to that of a car.

While many SUVs look like they were styled with a straight edge, the Murano designers made extensive use of French curves. The front-end features a wide grille flanked by stacked headlights. With its standard 18-inch alloy wheels wearing enormous 235/65R18 inch all-season tires, the side view of the Murano is quite muscular. The rear of the Murano is a particularly strong styling statement. Between the flared fenders and the backswept D-pillars, there is no mistaking the Murano for anything else on the road.

The Murano also gets high marks for interior design. The instrument cluster is a three-pod affair. The center of the dash contains the stereo and climate controls. They are grouped together in a pod that places them much closer than they would otherwise be, thus making them easier to reach. The fit and finish of the interior is excellent and the choice of materials is good.

Nissan has constructed a gem of a motor when they put together their 240-horsepower 3.5L V6 engine. It's extremely flexible with strong power across the rev range. Step hard on the gas and the tachometer needle rises to the torque peak and just hangs there. The Murano comes equipped with a buttery smooth continuously variable transmission that is especially impressive.

Standard four-wheel disc brakes have anti-lock circuitry, brake assist, and electronic force brake distribution. That pedals adjust back and forth, and the driver's seat has an four-way power adjuster. The seats are very good, and the ease with which the rear seatbacks folded was exceptional. Besides providing a flat load floor there is also a hefty storage area under the cargo floor.

The Murano lineup consists of the S and SL on 2WD models, and S, SL, and SE trims on the AWD models. The SL gets automatic headlights, fog lamps, HomeLink, an alarm system, two extra speakers, an electrochromic rearview mirror, and a rearview camera. The SE comes with a manual shift mode on the CVT, tuned suspension, unique alloy wheels, and high intensity discharge headlights.

A number of packages add various equipment to the Murano, such as a six-disc CD changer, a Bose audio system, satellite radio, a sunroof, leather seat trim, seat memory, heated mirrors, traction and stability controls, a tire pressure monitor, a navigation system, and chrome wheels.

Driving the Murano is a delight. The steering is almost like a sports car in its immediacy and reliable feedback. Acceleration and braking are both very good, and the ride is far superior to any truck-base SUV. Overall the Nissan designers have done a fantastic job of blending the traditional SUV demands into a visually exciting package.


Model News

The Nissan Murano continues largely unchanged for 2007. Due to the change in the way horsepower is computed, the Murano's published number drops from 245 to 240 and the torque rating changes from 246 lb-ft to 244. In reality, the motor is unchanged for 2007.


Value Writeup

Available in either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive versions, the 2007 Nissan Murano is a knockout in the styling department. Looks aren't the only thing that sets it apart from the competition, though, as the Murano has a powerful V6 engine that makes it a joy to drive. The large wheels and tires not only add to the Murano's good looks, but also help it to corner more like a car than a typical SUV does.

Summary
NISSAN IS RECALLING 362,891 MY 2003-2007 MURANO VEHICLES. THE INTAKE AIR DUCTS, WHICH ARE CONNECTED TO THE INTERMEDIATE RESONATOR IN THE AIR INTAKE SYSTEM OF THE ENGINE, MAY SEPARATE FROM THE RESONATOR WITH ENGINE MOVEMENT. THIS SEPARATION OCCURS DUE TO THE PREMATURE AGING OF THE MATERIAL USED IN THE INTAKE AIR DUCTS WHICH CAUSES EXCESSIVE SHRINKING.

Consequence
ENGINE MAY STALL INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.

DEALERS WILL INSPECT AND REPLACE/REPAIR THE APPROPRIATE COMPONENTS FREE OF CHARGE. THE RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON OR BEFORE JULY 6, 2009. OWNERS MAY CONTACT NISSAN AT 1-800-647-7261.

OWNERS MAY ALSO CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION'S VEHICLE SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), OR GO TO HTTP://WWW.SAFERCAR.GOV .

Summary
NISSAN IS RECALLING 204,361 MY 2007-2008 ALTIMA, ALTIMA COUPE, 350Z, MURANO, ROGUE; AND INFINITI G35 SEDAN, G37 COUPE AND EX35 PASSENGER VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH CONTINENTAL AUTOMOTIVE SYSTEMS' OCCUPANT CLASSIFICATION SYSTEM (OCS) CONTROL UNITS. A VARISTOR IN THE OCS CONTROL UNIT LOCATED IN THE PASSENGER SEAT CUSHION MAY HAVE BEEN MANUFACTURED OUT OF SPECIFICATION. UNDER CERTAIN CONDITIONS, THIS COULD CAUSE AN INTERRUPTION OF SIGNAL BETWEEN THE OCS AND THE AIR BAG CONTROL UNIT (ACU).

Consequence
THIS COULD RESULT IN THE PASSENGER AIR BAG BEING SUPPRESSED WHICH COULD FAIL TO PROVIDE ADEQUATE PROTECTION IN THE EVENT OF A CRASH.

DEALERS WILL TEST THE SIGNAL BETWEEN THE OCS AND ACU SYSTEMS USING A SPECIAL TOOL TO CHECK THAT IT IS FUNCTIONING AS DESIGNED. IF NECESSARY, THE SEAT CUSHION (CONTAINING OCS HARDWARE) WILL BE REPLACED WITH A NEW ONE MANUFACTURED TO SPECIFICATION. THE RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON OR BEFORE NOVEMBER 3, 2008.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
