2009 Nissan Murano (continued)


2009 Nissan Murano

There is a huge number of competent, comfortable, convenient and roomy crossover SUVs available on the American market for 2009. We think the new Nissan Murano ranks right up there with the best of them. We like the Murano very much, inside and out. It's good looking, easy to use, reasonably powerful, and won't use up all your money on gasoline.

Jim McCraw filed this report to after his test drive of a Murano SL outside Scottsdale, Arizona.
