Where can you find a high-performance SUV that has the sophistication of a luxury vehicle? Look no further than this week’s Goodwill Auto Auction, where we’re featuring this sharp 2004 Nissan Murano.
In 2002, Nissan added the first crossover sport utility vehicle to its lineup, the Murano. Its sleek, sculpted exterior was inspired by the sculptured glass manufactured in Murano, Italy, where the popular SUV also earned its namesake.
Under the hood, you can find a 3.5-liter V6 engine that sends 245 horsepower to the Murano’s single-speed automatic transmission, allowing it to change gears seamlessly. This power gives the Murano a towing capacity of up to 3,500 lbs. The model we’re offering also has roof racks, which are perfect for impromptu kayaking, biking or camping trips.
Kelley Blue Book users give the 2004 Murano an average rating of 8.5 out of 10 for its reliability, utility, and driving experience. One user describes it as “comfortable and surprisingly powerful.” The SUV also has a spacious interior with seating for five, and the rear seats fold down for maximum trunk space.
As far as the driving experience, the Murano is praised for its smooth handling, rapid acceleration and limited road noise. This vehicle is equipped with standard front and side-impact airbags as well as antilock brakes. With a fuel economy of 18 MPG in the city and 23 MPG on the highway, the 2004 Murano is an economical choice for drivers with long commutes.
