    I had a chance to drive a Murano for a weekend last summer. I didn't do any actual calculations, but it seemed like the gas guage dropped like a stone. I was left with the impression that it got FAR less than its rated gas mileage. And I REALLY hated the CVT transmission, I just can't get used to it.

    Her's was a fuel pump issue. so you can add that to a new issue. So many problems with new cars... Her tribute was like that when she first bought it. It, like this one, was the first release, so I would expect a few recalls.

    Lifted this from one of the threads at NISANMURANO.ORG. Looks like their problems are as bad - or worse.

    I'm getting 15 - 16 mpg in all city driving, a/c on all the time. I don't race at every stoplight but I ain't babying it, either. I thought that's pretty low but seeing people get 12-13 mpg puts things into perspective. My Mazda6 V6 got 17-18 mpg city but of course, it was lighter, FWD and had less power.

    I've also gotten 19 mpg on a tank of about 25% highway and 75% city driving. The mileage is not great, but then CX-7 is what it is - a 2-ton AWD SUV. Like others said, if you want good mileage, buy a Yaris or something.

    That's besides the point, the point is that CX-7 is advertized by Mazda to run 18-20 miles a gallon not 13.

    Either way, this is getting old, notting to see here people, lets move on to something else. nate0123 is right, suck it up and drive on.

    Point blank: Enjoy your new ride!!! And don't forget to drive it like you stole it!
    your right!!! im just gonna mod the fuck out of it now can it get ant worse

    Here's mine. Maybe the AWD saps the mileage?

    Got back from our road trip up the California coast on the weekend. These are mostly highway driving with 60 to 78 cruzing speed. Our pace was a comfortable medium drive with no hard acceleration (yet)

    Tank # 5 80 highway / 20 city 22.7 MPG
    Tank # 6 85 highway / 15 city 24.2 MPG
    Tank # 7 80 highway/ 20 city 22.5 MPG 7/06/06
    Tank # 8 60 highway/ 40 city 22.3 MPG 7/11/06 2,180 mi
    Tank #10 40 highway/ 60 city 21.3 MPG 7/30/06 2,900 mi
    Tank #11 40 highway/ 60 city 20.4 MPG 8/05/06 3,270 mi
    Tank #12 40 highway/ 60 city 21.8 MPG 8/12/06 3,570 mi

    Mine is FWD GT

    I have gotten between 18.5 (80% highway) and going as low as 13 with 100% in town driving. I am sitting on the fence waiting how it develops. I can't say that I am too happy with it at this point.

    "With 244 horsepower at 5000 rpm, the CX-7 AWD Sport hauled its 3920 pounds to 60 mph in 7.9 seconds and on through the quarter-mile in 16.1 seconds at 87 mph. Those are perfectly respectable numbers, but there are some quicker tall wagons out there, such as the Toyota RAV4 (6.3 seconds to 60 mph) and Subaru Forester 2.5XT (5.9). Neither of those can match the CX-7’s 0.84-g skidpad figure (Subaru, 0.75; Toyota, 0.79), though. Consider also that we averaged 14 mpg during testing, well below the EPA’s findings of 18/24 mpg." - Car and Driver
