Keep Up With Your 2015 Nissan Murano Maintenance… Treat It Like Your First Born! – Lexington, KY 

I was the first born. My younger sister experienced the life of hand-me-downs and been-theres. Don’t treat your new Nissan like you’ve had another before it.

We all want a car that makes us look good, drives smoothly and is equipped with the latest technology. But at the end of the day and, especially in the beginning, you want to have transportation that you can count on. If you’re looking for the most reliable SUV on the market, then you might want to look into the often-overlooked but recently redesigned 2015 Nissan Murano.

What does it mean when we say that a car is reliable?

Quality of workmanship, fuel efficiency and not breaking down, ever.

The 2015 Nissan Murano features will all get you going on the right foot but, like any car, don’t drive it into the ground. Here are three key things to keep up with on your 2015 Nissan Murano maintenance schedule:

Oil Change

Check Radiator Fluid and Overfill Tank

Wheel Alignment

Right now, the Glenn Nissan Service Department in Lexington is offering a to check your wheel alignment for free.

I recently test drove this Nissan SUV to give a well-rounded 2015 Murano review. The electric power steering responded well, providing just a slight bit of engagement. When driving the Murano on urban streets, I was impressed by its tight steering radius, making the seemingly bulky vehicle easily maneuverable. The well-tuned suspension struck a good balance between comfort and stability. Even on rough asphalt the ride never became jarring. While I found the Murano capable of passing slower cars on a two-lane cloverleaf or negotiating a twisty mountain road, it wasn’t a car I felt comfortable pushing hard in the turns.

The Murano fuel economy is really good, with EPA-estimated numbers of 21 MPG city and 28 MPG highway… Although my average came in under that range, at 20.2 MPG. Nissan’s only fuel economy play here is the CVT, lacking the kind of holistic view towards fuel economy engineering employed by Mazda, with its SkyActiv initiative encompassing engines, transmissions and vehicle weight. Monitoring the trip computer, I saw my average spike at 34 MPG on the freeway at 65 MPG, but drop to 11 MPG in heavy urban traffic. And speaking of the high-end trip computer, the 2015 Nissan Murano features a tech-filled, luxury interior for an affordable price.

 

It’s no wonder that the 2015 Nissan Murano is ranked as one of the most reliable vehicles this year. Glenn Nissan in Lexington has internet specials going on now, as we cruise into fall.
