Day 2 with my 2015 Murano!
Day 2: So far! So good!
I just purchased a 2015 Murano AWD SL with Tech Package.
I started out looking at an S Trim with Navigation - It did not have leather or power seats. The dealership tried to sell me on it, but no dice.
Moved up to the SV, but the SV does not have leather. Leather seats just fair better over time and they look classy, not to mention they add value to the vehicle later down the line (trade ins, etc).
Started to look at the SL, leather seats, but not the ultimate Platinum.
Looked at a Platinum, but mistakenly thought all Platinums were pimped out to the max. Some are not. The Platinum I looked at for 40 MSRP did not have a moonroof (ala the Tech Package). I learned a valuable lesson about trims, packages, and add ons from the manufacturer (e.g. Navigation, Splash Guards, Mats, Chrome Rear Bumper Protectors).
So, in the end, I went with an SL with Tech Package (Power Panoramic Moonroof, Forward Emergency Breaking, Intelligent Cruise Control, Predictive Forward Collision Warning).
What I missed out on by not getting the Platinum Trim:
1. Power Steering Wheel (I can adjust this manually)
2. Heated Back Seats (I don't sit back there lol)
3. Automatic retractable back seats (It's not hard to put the back seats back up).
4. One or two other little things (just not enough to make me pull the trigger)
If the 2016s come out next month, well, I'll get over it!
