Nice But Twitchy Steering logo 8/5/2015 Peter Kunasz

Love a lot about this car, but there are some issues. I will be brief.1. Most important, this car has very sensitive "twitchy" steering at freeway speeds. Essentially you end up making twice the little steering corrections that you would expect. I had a shop supervisor ride with me and he agreed and said that the 2015 Murano has a different type of electronic power steering that causes the issue and Nissan is aware of the problem but there is no fix other than to check the alignment. If you are not attuned to how the car handles, you may not notice this problem as it is subtle-- but it is there. Shoppers should freeway test drive and see if this bothers them before buying.2. Fuel economy--not as reported. Getting 19.9 in mostly highway driving. This is way below EPA values. This may be a law suit issue as it seems to be the norm.3. Interior materials--much cheeper than my 09 Murano. Some panels do not align properly. I am disappointed in the assembly process.4. General handeling--not as good as my 09 Murano, but ride is softer.
