And yet, big. So very big.

I'm sure it's fine to drive, has all of the amenities you'd expect of a German car mimicking a British one. But to me (just my opinion) it's an affront to, uh, something. There's something very off about it, which makes me hate it.

You'll probably love it and get many years of motoring joy fahrvergnügen from it. But I'd need a set of these IOT drive it:



Which would be very inconvenient.

I'm sure the miata with the retractable hardtop is just as awful.

Oh, those are hideous. Especially from the side.

My wife owned a Nissan Murano, 2004 to be exact. Trade in value was garbage. Dealership was amazing to deal with , always (better than dodge or ford at almost every instance). The Murano was great on gas and had a decent amount of cargo room. Only complaint was that it was a bit of a girls car.

They are cheap now.

I like the transmission and mood lighting. I'll never own an SUV.

The Murano is very spacious as well. Stereo is a pain. The CD player is known to cack out and you just cant swap out to an alpine or anything. The display / info center NEEDS the deck. There is no canbus / adapter for it that I am aware of.

Yup, same thing. You need to relocate the head unit somewhere in the truck, then install your aftermarket deck. That way your hvac controls all continue working as well as the info screen.

You would lose the volume options on the steering wheel.
