    What did you do, jump into the backseat, to have a mild concussion take a good blow to the head.
  • Here's the best offer that I could get in the NJ/NY area. Sealing the deal this weekend:

    2010 Murano SL AWD

    Merlot with Black interior
    Floor Mats
    Splash Guards

    Out-the-door for $35k flat with 10k down and 2.9% for 60 mos.

    Shopped around for a few weeks and contacted lots of dealers.

    I wasn't interested in Nav or Tech., just the most comfortable ride.

    Offers were all over the chart.

    Did have one offer for the same as above with 3 yr service contract for $35.5 OTD, but then he gave me the old "I sold them all and now it was $36.6" when I was ready to pull the trigger a week later (Ramsey).

    Figure with an invoice of $33,080 on Edmunds, TrueCar, and KBB, this is a good deal.
  • I am in a non-rebate state and am looking at a deal at invoice - anyone beating this pricing (no trade).
  • I got the same SL with identical packages and options. Price paid on the car was under $31.5K, the terms are the same for all dealers. What was the final price on your car? My final price with tax & fees were lower since I got $18K for my trade which impacted my taxes. Who is the dealer. I went to 5 of them in NJ NY area before going to the last one RT 22. If you want to give my guy a call to check I can give you his name. You can email me at coincidently someone else got the same car for $31.7K based on my recommendation.

    Iwent to these dealers.

    Stay away from Koppell if you want good deal.....

    Definitely high game players,,, from first hand experience...posted same many pages back but worth it to me to post again...very sour taste in my mouth from them...
  • Non rebate state. 10 SL AWD tech roof and leather $33,100 plus $200 doc and sales tax.
  • I can't help but notice most of the people here are talking about he higher model or Murano. I'm in the process of shopping a basic S model of Murano. Its a new year and a few dealers are trying to push their 2009 models. I got an offer for Murano S 2009 for $23499. It is basic with a convenience package (even thought i have no idea what it is) and floor mat and splash guard. Anyone has any commend on it?

    also, does anyone know what is the difference between an 09 and 10?
  • Hi Cutco.

    I am interested in getting a murano SL. Please email me the details of the sales person or dealer at
  • Hi that convenience package is the floor mat and splash only nothing else. The car is extremely basic. Which area of the country are you in? I shocked to hear about 2009 S. A 2010 AWD S is about $25K. I had an offer on a basic 2010 AWD SL for $28.5K. I would go with a 2010 instead of a 2009 giving that the safety features are better. I dont think that there are many 2009 SL available. Is the S that you are looking for a AWD? Good luck.

    For the '09 Murano S model, the convenience package is:

    Alarm System, Cargo Cover, Privacy Glass & Roof Rails.

    $550 addition to MSRP...



    Prices Paid, Lease Questions, SUVs

    After unsuccessfully trying to buy an '09 last fall, I just picked up my new Murano this weekend:
    2010 Nissan Murano LE AWD
    Platinum Graphite/ Black
    Accessory Value Package
    Splash Guards
    Floor Mats

    MSRP $41,275
    Invoice $37,912

    Price before rebates $37,250 (includes $199 dealer doc fee)
    Rebate ($1,250)
    Presidents Day bonus cash ($500)
    Dealer Referral Coupon ($100)
    Added Rear Bumper Protector $199
    Final price = $35,599

    No trade or financing. TT&L is paid at the DMV in my state - not at the dealer. I was very pleased with this deal. No dealers in the area had the color/trim that I wanted, so initially I got a quote from a dealer about 200 miles away. But this local dealer was very aggressive about locating my vehicle, beating the other dealers price and getting the vehicle to the dealership for me. I'm very pleased with the deal and looking forward many years of driving my new Mo. My new ride replaces my 2001 Pathfinder, which I was very happy with but sold to my brother.

    The Presidents Day cash kind of fell in my lap - the vehicle arrived at the dealership the first day of the $500 bonus cash. Thinking about blowing it on a remote start system.
  • I bought my new 2009 (car had 50 miles on odo) for $34,300 in June 2009. MSRP was $41,300.

    Murano LE AWD with carpet floor mats, cross rail bars, and Aero Kit all around.

    My murano does not have Navigation and HDD. Everything else is in. Very happy with my car. already 8,000 miles on it.
    Is it a good deal?

    One little problem I had with the radio: when start the engine, FM radio stopped broadcasting. AM/XM/CD/iPod worked fine but FM could not hear from the speakers. Had to shut engine and restart again to fix the problem. Nissan replaced the radio. No more issues with radio after that.

    We'll be in the market for a new car this summer. When I got my Murano I had decided I wanted it and emailed the online depts of 2-3 dealers. I got a good price fairly easily. I don't know what car I want this time and will have to shop a few to decide. Does that put me out of online dealing and into salesperson dealing? I really hate to haggle because it's a waste of time. I know what I want to pay and won't play the game. I hate to take a salesperson's time, but I need them to see the car, and with them I have to play the game.

    I hope I made my question clear....

    Can I email for quotes and then test drive the cars to decide? I'm just not sure how to approach it.

    On a different point, when we bought our Altima I knew we wanted one. We found one in the right color and the salesman refused to give us a price until we drove it (we'd driven others) He wasted our time because in the end they couldn't beat the price we hahe wasted his time making us drive a car when he knew our price point and probably knew he couldn't meet it.
  • I have owned many different types of cars and trucks. My “2003 Murano SE” has turned out to be for me one of the most unreliable and repair intensive cars I have ever owned.

    The short list:

    • Recurring brake and strut problems.
    • Had CVT repaired twice.
    • Replaced CVT.
    • Engine oil leaks (valve covers; seals; gaskets; etc.).
    • The engine now is burning oil (I have changed it every ~3K miles).
    • Catalytic converter system and O2 sensors replaced.
    • Failed power door lock solenoids (2).
    • Cup holder ears broke with little pressure.
    • Bose CD changer problems (disc player skips; speakers cut out).
    • Gas cover door sticks preventing access to fill tank with gas.
    • AC system coolant leaks repaired and system re-charged.

    These issues have made the experience of owning this car very sour. I have spoke to other owners who have expressed the same dissatisfaction. See my posts in the CVT issues section.

    By anything else. Don't buy a Nissan Murano!
  • See my post #2683.

    For the $$$ you're better off getting an Acura or a Lexus!
  • loachloach Posts: 246
    Silly me - I thought this was the "prices paid" thread.
  • Sorry to bother you with my note. However, I feel compelled to warn people about what to expect while considering purchasing a Murano.

    Hope you have better luck.
  • Mike, too bad about your 1st generation Murano, but this thread is about new Muranos which were redesigned for the 2009 model year. (Plus your 2003 was the first year of a completely new design - always a risk. Shouldn't be, but that is the reality of any new design from any manufacturer).

    We've had our 2009 for 14 months and put 28,000 miles on it, including long highway trips, city driving, and winter mountain trips. The car has been absolutely perfect, no defects or repairs of any kind required. Its clearly the best midsize SUV/CUV out there, as indicated by Consumer Reports surveys and Edmund's editors.

    And, to bring this back to the purpose of this thread, a great value compared to the Lexus RX350, and the Infinity FX35 we cross shopped for.

    My 09 SL has just under 12k miles and not a single issue. Buying the first model year of anything and keeping it beyond the warranty is usually risky.

    Today, I bought Murano from Nissan Buena Park. I paid $32K for SL 2WD that included the premium and Technology packages. The price I paid was after getting $1250 cashback from Nissan.
    Other options that were included in the deal are: duel moonroof , roofrack cross bars, mats and rear cargo cover.
    I had to pay extra for tax and license which is more than $3K. My deal included trade in my previous 2006 SL 2WD Murano that had 73000 miles for $13,500.
    I spent 6 hours at the dealership where I had to do negotation with 3 persons but the entire experience was pleasant. I did research the used car and new car information and tips from Edmunds site and that really helped me . I am sharing this for shoppers looking into buying Murano. I love the car and I hope my new car will work as good as my previous one.

    To be correct, this is the "prices paid and buying experience" thread.

    The buying experience for me was "all" bad since the car turned out to be such money pit.

    For the record to all readers: In 2004, I paid $23,995 for a fully loaded, "dealer certified" 2003 SE Murano. The car was owned by a salesman from the dealership. It had 39k miles. Over the next five years I spent a total of $11,000 in repair bills for failing parts and systems. I can honestly say the buying and owning experience is rather negative.

    I would caution purchasing 2009 models since it is the first year in a new platform. The 2011's will have a revision in trim packages and TCB updates. It might be better to wait until later this year.

    Also, be aware that the new Murano's, 2009 and forward, share technology with the Rogue. The Rogue is riddled with problems.

    Just sticking to the thread "loach".
  • iolo72iolo72 Posts: 29
    IMO, the "buying experience" part is experience you had with your seller at the time of purchasing your vehicle to share with others so they can use that information to look for good dealers to negotiate good deals and weed out bad dealers to stay away from. A post without any info regarding whom/where/for how much the purchase was made and the actual buying experience (as in purchase transaction) is not really helpful. Just making the thread relevant.
  • mikesmuranomikesmurano Posts: 118
    My Murano was originally purchased at the Nissan dealer in Conyers, GA.

    I found them to be rather dishonest regarding their "Certified Cars".

    I subsequently shopped at the "Mall of Georgia Nissan". Found them to be very pricey and non-negotiable.

    I later conducted my business at Carriage Nissan in Gainesville, GA. I found them to be the most reasonable to deal with. They were negotiable and came across as honest.

    But, I have also recently learned that Nissan Dealers have a practice of "railroading" customers, even ones with bad credit, into compromised (i.e. bad) deals.

    The Consumer Protection Agency in GA is investigating as we speak.

    I would exercise caution at any Nissan dealership.

    I think this post is relevant. IMO. :P

    Like someone posted before, what happened to you have NOTHING to do with todays Murano's. Nissan has issues with the CVT in the early years but have corrected the problems. But of course that doesn't matter to you, since it seems like you like to hold on the issue not move forward. So you got a bad deal, sorry, but sell the Murano and never buy another one (nissan). Its called growing up.

    You are not correct about the current design of Nissan's CVT's. A little research confirms this by looking at the dates of the models that continue to have problems. Even newer models.

    Correcting you further, I am not holding on but warning people so that they may avoid costly unplanned repairs.

    Correcting you still further, I have moved on by purchasing an Acura to replace the Murano. Best car purchase I have made in recent times.

    CYS further, you have bad grammar, poor spelling skills and poor sentence structure in addition to sounding rather insulting.

    Try your "pop-psychological" analysis on some else. LOL. ;)
  • Mike, I can appreciate your disappointment and frustration. I imagine nearly everyone has at least one consumer experience in which he/she felt exploited. You have every right to share your experience with fellow consumers no matter your intentions.

    Please understand though that sharing your story and shoving it down our throats are different experiences on our end. We are here because we may buy, or have bought Muranos already. Our individual decisions may take your experience into account, but we all are big boys and girls here.

    So, since there is not an ignore feature in this forum perhaps you could be respectful of us and stop spamming thoughts on threads where the topic has little in common with your story.
  • loachloach Posts: 246
    Well said, Denny. But he won't stop spamming this thread because he can't help himself. He'll probably prove it by replying to this post.....

    Denny, thanks for your comments. However, respectfully, my buying experience is no less valid than yours or anyone else being a former Nissan Murano owner.

    Also, folks looking to buy are not only looking for "new" Muranos. Many are shopping for used cars and Consumer Reports publications are generally inaccurate and non-technical.

    I have had replies that were positive wanting to know what went wrong and others, like "loach" and "flightnurse", who think sharing a negative experience is wrong (i.e. shoving it down throats).

    I don't know where your thinking is if when information provided does not match your experience or opinion it is then bad or irrelevant. Especially, when it can voluntarily be ignored or disregarded.

    My advice for you is to buy another Murano. Heck, buy two or three. That way you'll have spare parts when one breaks down.

    Don't reply unless you want me to reply back. I find it humorous that my remarks bother you guys so much.
  • jayriderjayrider Posts: 3,602
    mike -- your remarks don't bother me at all. I doubt that they bother nissan as well. Had you had the problems with a new 07 or 09 your warnings would be taken more seriously. If I'm correct you bought the first model year used with 39k miles on it. You paid top dollar because they were hot back then and you got burned. My condolences. I would concur with your warning to stay away from the 03's but the current models have been decent for the vast majority of owners. The cvt issues resulted in an extended warranty --10 years /120k miles so nissan is stepping up a bit. I doubt that any of your posts will be taken seriously by future murano purchasers or hurt nissan in general. The edmunds sample is really quite small. It might help vent your rage at the bum deal you got so in the words of buddy holly "Rave on". Enjoy your new car -- leave this mess behind. Good thoughts your way. :)

    Thanks for your words "jayrider". The first sensible ones I've heard.

    I will not comment more in this thread unless someone asks for my input.

    Just an FYI, I live in the metro Atlanta area which is one of the largest Nissan, Honda and Toyota markets in the U.S.

    In our 145 resident neighborhood there were six Murano owners; now five. Two of those owners purchased 2009 models; the rest were spread among earlier years.

    Interestingly, (3 of 6) were/are having CVT and other mechanical problems. One of those is an '09. I think it is a little more than coincidence. Two neighbors bought '09's because they saw my '03 in my driveway for five years thinking that it must be a great car since I had it so long. They never asked.

    There is more to the story than what some have thought. I hung on to the car because I loved the way it drove and truly like the concept of a CVT. As I said the first two years were bliss.

    As one writer said maybe I got Monday or Friday car. Or maybe it was just because it was an '03. Being an automotive mechanical engineer I can say it's a case of shoddy engineering and sloppy manufacturing coupled with all the rest.

    I leave you all in peace. ;)
