img000911-300x225While the weather today was beyond miserable, we just got a special delivery from Nissan – thanks to TravelingMom.com. For the next two weeks, Role Mommy and her brood will be test driving the 2009 Nissan Murano SUV.First things first. While a man might take a look under the hood to check out the engine, the first thing I noticed was the sapphire blue color and beige leather interior. Oh, and did I mention the space age ignition key? There’s actually no key! Just a device that you slip inside the ignition, step on the brake, press start and Voila! You’re off to the races. Or in my case, you’re off to the toy store and the pet store so you can purchase a birthday present and a tank for a brand new lizard who will be joining your family starting tomorrow.After my daughter and I took the car out for a mini spin, she was overjoyed to find that the seats are heated in the back – the first we’ve ever experienced 2nd row heated seats. Plus, the sun roof is as cool as our Tiguan sunroof – it extends from front to back which means everybody gets a great sky view.The dashboard is state of the art – with a killer media system – BOSE stereo speakers, ipod adapter, rear camera, GPS…I still have to play around with it – which I plan to do when we head to the Gotta love an electric trunk.Hamptons this weekend, but from what I can see already, it is right up my alley – all technology, all the time.Oh, and did I mention the electric trunk? With the press of a button, the trunk opens by itself! No more broken finger nails when I try to yank the trunk open while balancing three shopping bags in my other hand.Here’s a trunk shot just so you can see how cool it is. I’ll be sharing video footage of our road trips too, so stay tuned and find out how the Feldmans fare these next two weeks in the Nissan Murano. It’ll be an adventure you won’t want to miss!
