Anyone tow with a Nissan Murano?

5 posts in this topic

Just wondering if anybody has a Murano and tows with it? I'm wondering how well it performs.

not very well i would assume, short wheel base and v6.

i had a supercharged nissan xterra and pulling a 6x12 would make me pull hairs out, it is not a good idea unless your pulling a small utility trailer.

Whatever route you choose don't use those universal tow wiring kits on the the Murano. You will fry the BCM(body control unit) and the lighting wires. It will be spendy after it fries. Go buy the dealer wiring kit. I have seen several customers that come in and tow with their Murano. Most of them only tow around 3000 lbs max.You don't want to tow more than that.

Honda, thanks for the tip on the wiring. The Murano is rated for 3500 lbs and I would estimate my tin rig to be about 2500 lbs, so I think it would be fine, I just wanted to see if anyone else towed with one and had any opinions.

it has a CVT tranny, which would really make me question how well that belt would hold up to towing.

It also isnt rated for alot of torque. My wife wanted one and we went out and test drove a couple. The 15-16 MPG in town was not what we expected and not much greater for HWY travel. Its worse than my 4x4 truck in town.

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!

      Eskimo cs is top notch. I have had 2 different pop-ups and have a 949i now and love it. Wasn't overly impressed with the flip over pop-up at Cabela's though. It seemed to have less room out in front of you than the other flip over from clam and otter.
