Model Highlights

Following a hiatus in 2008, the 2009 Nissan Murano picks up where the 2007 model left off in terms of offering lots of performance and amenities in a crossover SUV.

The Murano returns in three trim levels--S, SL, and LE. The S and SL are available in either front- or all-wheel drive, while the top-of-the-line LE only comes in all-wheel drive. All models are powered by Nissan's ubiquitous and exceptional 24-valve 3.5L V6, which now puts out 265 horsepower and 248 ft-lbs of torque, and all make use of the company's second-generation continuously variable transmission (CVT). Limited slip is optional on FWD models and standard on AWD models.

All 2009 Murano models feature a 60/40 split fold-flat rear seat, dual power mirrors, UV-reducing glass, push-button ignition, electroluminescent gauges, dual-zone automatic climate control, one-touch power windows and locks, remote keyless entry, tilt/telescopic steering wheel with cruise control, three handy 12-volt outlets, and a six-disc in-dash AM/FM stereo with MP3 capability.

The SL adds fog lights, rear privacy glass, an eight-way power driver's seat, power return rear seatbacks, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls.

Step up to the top-line LE and you get 20-inch alloy wheels, automatic high-intensity discharge (HID) xenon headlights, dual heated mirrors, a power liftgate, Bluetooth phone system, an information center with a seven-inch screen, a power tilt/telescopic steering column, driver's seat memory, rain-sensing windshield wipers, a retractable cargo cover, four-way power to the passenger's seat, heated leather seats front and rear, wood accents, a Bose stereo system with speed sensitive volume control, and XM satellite radio.

Several packages are available on the 2009 Murano. The Premium Package features a Bose stereo, XM satellite radio, a security system, and more, while a Technology Package includes HID headlights, intelligent keyless entry and ignition, and rain-sensing wipers. A leather package, navigation and music package, and a DVD package are also available for about $2,000 each.

Standard safety features on all 2009 Muranos include six air bags, traction and dynamic stability control, and anti-lock brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution and brake assist. The Murano returns 18 mpg city/23 mpg highway.


Pros

Excellent, reliable Nissan 3.5L V6; stylish, aggressive design; sporty and capable handling; luxury in the top-line LE trim.


Model News

The Murano was absent from Nissan's Lineup in 2008, but has returned with an all-new look for 2009. While the overall profile remains more or less the same, all exterior sheetmetal is revamped and furthers the Murano's aggressive, athletic look. Nissan's stalwart 3.5L V6 returns, but power has been upped by 25 horses to 265, while torque is up 4 ft-lbs to 248. The only transmission available is the company's second-generation continuously variable (CVT) unit, which has been tuned to better work in concert with the extra power.

Physical dimensions are relatively unchanged over the 2007 model, but interior materials are improved, with a higher quality in both appearance and feel throughout the lineup.

Pricing across the model range has increased from roughly $4,000 on the base S to $10,000 on the top-line LE.


Value Writeup

The 2009 Murano sits in a crowded crossover SUV segment, but it has no shortage of features that set it apart. The redesign is an effective evolution of the car's popular look, and Nissan's 3.5L V6 is widely regarded as one of the best powerplants in the automotive world. Coupled with the chassis it shares with the Altima, the Murano's car-like reflexes, ample power, creature comforts, and spacious interior make it the ideal candidate for getting people and cargo from Point A to Point B in a comfortable, sporty, entertaining manner.

Summary
NISSAN IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2008-2010 VEHICLES ORIGINALLY SOLD IN OR CURRENTLY REGISTERED IN THE STATES OF CONNECTICUT, DELAWARE, IOWA, ILLINOIS, INDIANA, MASSACHUSETTS, MAINE, MARYLAND, MICHIGAN, MINNESOTA, MISSOURI, NEW HAMPSHIRE, NEW JERSEY, NEW YORK, OHIO, PENNSYLVANIA, RHODE ISLAND, VERMONT, WASHINGTON D.C., WEST VIRGINIA AND WISCONSIN. THE MATERIAL IN THE NUT USED TO SECURE THE SENSOR-TRANSMITTER OF THE TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM (TPMS) MAY CORRODE AND POTENTIALLY CRACK IN AREAS WITH HEAVY CONCENTRATIONS OF ROAD SALT. IF THIS OCCURS, THE NUT MAY COME OUT OF THE SENSOR-TRANSMITTER AND THE TPMS LAMP WILL ILLUMINATE.

Consequence
IF THE TPMS LAMP IS DISREGARDED AND THE VEHICLE CONTINUES TO BE DRIVEN IN THIS CONDITION, THE TIRE WILL QUICKLY LOSE AIR PRESSURE AT A CONSISTENT RATE RESULTING IN A FLAT TIRE INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.

THE DEALER WILL REPLACE THE TPMS NUT WITH A NEW, MORE ROBUST NUT. THIS SERVICE WILL BE PERFORMED FREE OF CHARGE. THE RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON OR BEFORE NOVEMBER 9, 2009. OWNERS MAY CONTACT NISSAN AT 1-800-647-7261 AND INFINITI AT 1-800-662-6200.

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 .

AIR BAGS

Potential Number of Units Affected
16365

Summary
NISSAN IS RECALLING 16,365 MY 2008 INFINITI EX35 AND MY 2009 NISSAN MURANO VEHICLES. DUE TO INCORRECT SOFTWARE PROGRAMMING, THE AIR BAG CONTROL UNIT (ACU) MAY CAUSE THE PASSENGER AIR BAG NOT TO OPERATE AS DESIGNED IF THE VEHICLE BATTERY BECOMES SIGNIFICANTLY DISCHARGED.

Consequence
THIS COULD RESULT IN THE PASSENGER AIR BAG NOT INFLATING IN A CRASH IN WHICH IT WAS DESIGNED TO DO SO, AND INCREASING THE RISK OF INJURY.

DEALERS WILL REPROGRAM THE ACU IN AFFECTED VEHICLES. THE RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN DURING FEBRUARY 2008. OWNERS MAY CONTACT INFINITI AT 1-800-662-6200 OR NISSAN AT 1-800-647-7261.

CUSTOMERS 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.

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).
