Anyone drive this thing yet? Looks kind of cool in all Black but I think the CVT would ruin it for me.

Funny CVT was one of my favorite features when test driving a Murano. Just smooth acceleration the whole way.

It was the plastic, vinyl, gadget laid out interior that killed it for me.

The 2009 Murano is supposed to have a much better and more upscale interior than the old one. I haven't seen the inside yet, but I did see the exterior and it looked very nice in Black.

Agreed on the interior--typical Japanese--busy and bizarre at times---the Germans make the nicest instrument panels..
I would have got a Murano except I liked the size and looks of the X3 better. And there are so many Murano's on the road.
