Full Answer

Nissan's Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle program is a good option for used Murano shoppers due to the seven-year or 100,000-mile limited warranty included with certified vehicles as of 2015. A Murano eligible for this program must be less than 6 years old, have less than 80,000 miles on its odometer and must pass a 167-point inspection to qualify for certification under the program. Since Nissan covers vehicles up to 6 years old, it is still possible to find an older Murano at a reasonable price and benefit from the coverage available under this program.

Shopping for a Murano less than 6 years old is a wise strategy for buyers even if they do not take advantage of the Pre-Owned Certified program. First-generation Murano vehicles constructed between 2002 and 2009 have a large number of owner complaints as compared to second-generation vehicles constructed after 2009. The 2005 model year is particularly troublesome according to owners, with broken seats and transmission problems common.
