Nissan Murano Lemon Odds and Nada Odds through December 31, 2012General NotesNote the sample sizes in the right column. For a precise Nada Odds, it'd be best to have 50+ cars. For Lemon Odds, 100+. In most cases the sample sizes are between 25 and 35, and differences of less than six points are probably not meaningful. This is especially a factor with the "Lemon Odds," where nearly all scores are low.
That said, the Lemon Odds figures are probably much lower than many people suspected, so we've posted them. Similarly, the Nada Odds are probably higher than many people suspected. Even with the least reliable cars in this results set your odds of no repairs would be better than one in three. Surprised? MethodologyThe samples include cars for which we have at least nine months of data in the past year. The "Nada-odds" are adjusted based on the average number of months of data per car. These stats are very close to what they'd be if we included only cars with a full year of data.
Only successfully completed repairs are currently included in the analysis. Recalls and problems fixed with just a reflash or warning light reset are not included.

What Our Members Are Saying about Brand Reputation and the Nissan Murano
|Brand Reputation of the Nissan Murano: Pros|
|2007||4dr SUV 245-horsepower 3.5L V6
|I have owned Datsun/Nissan vehicles for 30 years now. This is only my 4th vehicle because the quality provides me with the reliability I expect from a manufacturer. I have logged over 860K miles on my 4 vehicles.|
|Brand Reputation of the Nissan Murano: Cons|
|2010||4dr SUV 265-horsepower 3.5L V6
|I think Nissan has an image of a small car company, and some of its offering (Cube,Juke) seem zany! There had also been bad press on how they had handled CVT issues until 2007. Nissan USA seems to have discouraged/disappointed too many valuable customers!|
|2009||4dr SUV 265-horsepower 3.5L V6
|On-going reliability that is a step down from competitors.|
|2003||4dr SUV 245-horsepower 3.5L V6
|The image of the car is not all that desirable, the introduction of lesser models means that there are too many to be "tricked out"|
