Why Nissan quality is so much behind Honda and Toyota
Reliability is super bad
Nissan is from Japan, but their quality and design was totally very American. Do they deliberately do this?

Not only is Japan excellent at building cars but they are now also good at Rugby.

Nissan is much larger than Honda. Even before the Renault mergerathanato wrote: ↑ Nissan is a hit and miss, a buddy complains about his Maxima having random issues he keeps having to repair.
There is no one single answer to this old question but to keep it simple Honda and Toyota are larger companies with more R&D behind them, but even with them not all of their cars are solid...they get their reputation from their staple SKUs that are slow to change thus are mostly mature proven designs and when they change they run into issues the first model year run if the changes are too dramatic.
Look at all the transmission failures Honda had between 2000-2010 and they handled the recalls so poorly that I would never get their products, they refused to cover all of them so lots of folk paid 4k+ to repair their mistakes.
Toyota has recalls as well and for being one of the largest companies it still outsources some cars to others like BMW and Subaru, the new Supra BMW just recalled for faulty welds.
Even some of Toyota's past designs were lack luster as well.

It's funny, most people don't openly advertise being wrong for years.

Murano as a mid-size should be compared to a Highlander rather than Rav4? It would be Rav4 vs. Rogue?

The Pathfinder and the Highlander are a direct comparison. Both are cramped 7 seaters. Murano is 5 seats.rugerty100 wrote: ↑ Murano as a mid-size should be compared to a Highlander rather than Rav4? It would be Rav4 vs. Rogue?
Anyways, I find the Murano decent as a highway cruiser with comfy seats, good fuel economy (~7.5l/100km) and power, but it's rather thirsty in town.
I'm a bit scared of the CVT reliability long-term, so I don't intend to keep beyond the lease ($355/m, 39 months)
