One of my grandsons likes them and always points them out.

Nissan knows how to make great engines and the Murano ran strongly. Even the CVT worked well. A friend had one and it was a satisfying drive in the medium/large SUV class.

I think they are ugly. Also the Juke.

I used to see one of those in my neighborhood and thought it just fine . of course, all I need is for the the top to go down , nice weather and boon companions along and I am fine.

I once took a couple of pretty girls camping , with one describing herself upon introduction as like the car we were using, easy to handle, , rides well, and more fun with the top down. I swear , she was like a walking loyally test for other people's boyfriends.

 

The Juke was absolutely hideous., posted on April 2, 2024 at 17:43:23

And inexplicably popular.
But they're disappearing fast from local roads. I'm guessing it's rust that's taking them.
Apparently the Cube holds up better when exposed to salt brine.

The JATCO CVT used in Nissans of that vintage don't have a very good service record., posted on April 3, 2024 at 07:28:40

At least in the US. Nissan ended up buying a controlling interest in JATCO in order to get a handle on the durability issues, and as far as I know, the problems have been corrected.
My wife's Accent has a CVT, by the way, and I don't get all the hate for CVTs. I think it's better in operation than modern step gear transmissions that are programmed to shift in the highest gear as quickly as possible and stay there even under demand. Very annoying in operation, while the CVT is unobtrusive.
As far as longevity and repair costs, CVTs aren't any worse than 7-,8-,9-, and 10-speed step gear automatics. Like anything else, you have to take care of them.

Yes, maybe. But engine wise, they are bulletproof., posted on April 4, 2024 at 16:37:03

Since maybe 1970 they really haven't produced a dud.
