I have a 2007 Murano with about 110K miles on the clock - the trans has been flawless - guess I got a good one.I have experience the cvt in a Nissan Murano and did not like it at all. Went back to the dealer 3 time before even hitting 5,000 miles. During the third visit they said I need a new transmission. Nissan bought it back and I took my money and got an Audi A6.
Guess I got shafted with the Murano. I had mine a little over 2 months. Didn't have to use lemon law. Nissan just gave me the option of a new tranny or full refund. I took full refund and went to Audi.I have a 2007 Murano with about 110K miles on the clock - the trans has been flawless - guess I got a good one.
In manual mode it gives you feature without the hassle of working the clutchSomeone posed this question on one of the facebook groups: If they offered a Canyon/ Colorado Duramax with a 5-6 speed manual transmission, would you buy it?
I marked MAYBE as my answer (YES, NO, MAYBE)
I know how to drive a manual and I am one of the younger generation (born in 1989), but I was raised around agriculture, so I was kind of forced to learn how to drive them later in life for work with our big trucks and some of our work trucks with manuals. I did start off with a 1990 Honda Civic with a 5 speed and then later got a 2000 Honda CR-V with a 5 speed before finally staying with automatics as of late.
In cars, I liked the manual, but driving our work trucks with them (7.3 Powerstroke Diesels btw), I just don't care for them. Especially when you have to haul something. Racing around on back roads in a car, yes. Driving one in a big lumbering truck, not so much. I know our trucks are smaller, but I still don't think I would like it.
What about you?
