Finally Replaced my Wife's Pathfinder
#1
For the past year, my wife has been driving a Sentra my dad gave my daughter. A few weeks ago my daughter got her license and took the car from her mom, leaving her to drive my truck. After trying to decide between a Juke, Titan, Murano, or another Xterra over the Christmas weekend, we bought a 2011 Murano.

Sorry the sun was very bright this morning and the iPhone didn't compensate, so this will have to do for now.

I approve, looks sporty, not easy for a 4 door. What engine size did you get? What MPG can you expect? I think your going to be happier in a Murano than the Juke.

3.5L and window sticker said 18-23 I think it was. My running around town today taking care of insurance, tag, and picking my dad up for lunch showed and average fuel economy around town of 20.5ish with a high of 20.9mpg at one point.

Why did you pick the murano over the juke? If you don't mind me asking. Great color!

Congratulations. I think the Murano is hands down the winner when put up against the Juke. I like the color as well as if you didn't know that.

Very nice, do they make a CAI for the Murano?

Mod #2. Since the dealer is not paying me to advertise, off with the old;

My Weathertech floor liners came in last week.

And with icy conditions, just in time to protect the carpet.

Excellant choice, good looking and user friendly. Doesn't matter if it's ice, snow or sand. Those floor liners shore are better than carpet.

Finally had a chance to clean the Murano, or at least time to take it to somebody to clean it inside and out.
Looks as good as the day we brought it home, only better without the dealer advertisement tag on the front. The only thing about that dealer I don't like...the first thing the do is poke holes in the bumper to put their tag on front. We don't have front plates in MS, so they use it to advertise.
Deer took care of the tag frame, so I told the body shop to leave it off the new front fascia.

Can't do it. I actually grew up an Ole Miss fan because of my little league baseball coach. Then decided to go to Engineering school...which meant MSU.
