I wanted an SUV because, as a weekend musician, I needed room for schlepping equipment. Comparison-shopped for awhile (Honda CR-V and Chevy Equinox were also in the mix) and finally decided that the Rogue would fill the bill. Roomy interior, plenty of cargo space for my stuff (even with the rear seats up!), smooth ride, decent gas mileage, comfortable seating, nice bells and whistles. Many co-workers were impressed enough that they are also looking into the Rogue. Would highly recommend this car.

The First 1000 miles

For the last 6 years I?ve been driving an `08 Rav4 Sport with a 3.5L V6. The engine is strong and quiet, but the ride is noisy and stiff. We live in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains at 3300 ft. Our Rogue has about 1000 miles on it and we have been getting over 28 mpg on the 40 mile round trip to town. It?s been an adjustment to the 4 cyl engine. It has a growl at low speeds and hard acceleration. The performance is O.k., but not what I?m used to. When decelerating below 40 mph it has a tendency to ?glide? to the point that you must apply the brakes when coming to a stop. It does good going up and down the hills at highway speeds. The ?active engine braking? is very good at sensing the downhill slope and shifting down. My wife and I just returned after a 271 mile round trip to Reno with the A/C on all the way. We left our home at 3300 ft drove over the Sierra Mountains, including an 8600 and 7200 ft. mountain passes to Reno at 4400 ft. I calculated 31.7 mpg, the car computer read 32.2mpg, fantastic. There were several times I took it out of overdrive to increase engine braking it responded beautify. Passing slower vehicles was another story, at that altitude the mediocre engine power is degraded. If I would have had four adults in the car, I would not have tried to pass. If you live at a higher elevation you need to give this car a long test drive. The ride is a welcome change after Rav4. It?s quiet and comfortable, but not mushy. Most of my complaints are offset when you consider a 3400 lb. vehicle gets 30+ mpg. Overall I like the car, but I?ve really had to change my driving style.

Got the SL w/Premium Package - not many of them around so didn't have much room to haggle, but still not a bad deal overall. Really like the styling, exterior & interior. Very comfortable seats, enough room to squeeze in my family of 5 + large dog. The technology is outstanding - I've yet to see a better built-in navigation system, bluetooth is reliable and super fast connecting. The mini-screen that you can see through the steering wheel is a great touch. I love the AroundView monitor, moonroof is huge, power liftgate is excellent. Now, if you read the reviews you'll know that the engine is under-powered and can be a little loud. As far as those who have said that it drowns out the radio and conversation - I wouldn't go nearly that far. Just know what you're getting into...if you're not an aggressive driver and really just care more about getting from A to B without it being 'fun to drive', then you're good. And the real world gas mileage...it is winter and I'm still breaking it in, but I'm only getting around 25-26 mpg driving fairly conservatively on the highway.

Compared all the major brands in the mid/small CUV line. Bought the Rogue. For the money, couldn't do better. Yes the engine is a little underpowered, and the CVT can be noisy at high RPMS but how often do you drive like that? Feature for feature, thousands better deal than the Mazda CX-5. More comfortable seats than the CR-V. More shoulder room than the Edge. I drive an excess of 30,000 a year and this seems to be a long term comfort winner and a great value for the buck. Bought the SL, only downside is the location of the seat heater switches, That's where my wife like to put her purse.

I love my Rogue! Me and my family came down to a conclusion after test driving the Toyota Rav 4 and Honda CR-V. I bought a black SL AWD version. Best in class MPG and volume. This crossover does very well in every category in comparison in its class. It's very well executed with interior and exterior design. Interior is very comfortable with a lot of materials and design coming from Nissan's luxury brand Infiniti. I average 30 mpg with getting around 34 mpg on the freeway which is great. Very spacious inside and power delivery is excellent for a 4 cylinder. CVT is surprisingly smooth and is sporty when you need it to be. Love it has a sport mode for different gear ratios. Very versatile and useful all for just around 30,500$ for top of the line which in class is the best value you can get. The only complaints I do have is the horn sounds very puny, like it belongs in a FIAT & you'd think paying around 30,000$, they could've added a shifting mode or paddle shifters. That would've been nice. Fortunately those are 2 minor dislikes and wouldn't ever deter me away from this. So far no problems at all. Definitely a good buy !

Best Value, Ride, Drive, Available in a SUV ,

I purchased the first 2014 Rogue that came to the Nissan dealership on Abercorn in Savannah, Ga. This is the Best vehicle I have ever purchased. It gets 30+MPG, drives and rides Fantastic, looks Great, handles like a Sports Car and for what you get its a Steal. Nissan has outdone themselves, Honda, Toyota and all the rest. The Honda CRV and Toyota Rav4 are a joke compared to the 2014 Nissan Rogue. Look out Honda and Toyota, Nissan is designing some fantastic vehicles these days. And Best of all, Nissan and my Savannah Nissan dealership treat me like a King.

Had a 2008 Rogue that I recently sold and I was planning on getting a 2013 Rogue but I found it was too similar to the 2008 and pretty boring. I was looking into getting an Escape or Tucsan until I heard about Nissans redesign for the 2014 Rogue and I am so happy I waited! My new Rogue is great, it's like Nissan redesigned it the way I would've if I worked for them. It's roomier in the boot for my dogs and I love the black and carbon styling in the front dash. I've only had it for 3 days so far, but I'm definitely glad I went with the 2014 Rogue.

I've owned my 2014 rogue for two months now. Over all its fun and nice to drive. Got 1700 mile on it. My two teenagers like the room in the back. The CVT took a little to get use to, I had a 2009 Nissan Titan I loved all that power, but the gas was killing me. So far I've gotten 29 miles to a gallon with my rogue..I would recommend this for families on the go... now my kids don't like it , BC they can't race it...
