Unreliable

This is my 6th Nissan and has had more repair issues than the previous five combined. This vehicle has moved me from a constant Nissan supporter to one thinking this is my last from that company. Gas milage below expectations as well.

No problems with mine

I bought used 2021 with 19,000 miles. I now have 53,400 on odometer with no issues or problems. I have replaced tires/rear brakes-normal wear. I had a local Nissan dealership CVT transmission recommended service @ 50,000 miles ( no one else can service) cost $320.00. I have had zero issues thus far. I need to do transfer case/rear serviced at 60,000. I pay for a full service oil change every 5,000 miles which is imperative for vehicle reliability. DO THE SMALL SERVICES !!! the few dollars spent will save you from spending for major repairs later…. My father taught me this. A car is the WORST investment you can make so take care of it. I buy a car and keep til the wheels fall off and love having a reliable vehicle and no car payment.

Still Loving My Rogue after 5 Years!

I bought my Rogue new in Sept 2018. I currently have 78,000 miles. Mostly town as I live in the mountains at 4000 feet. It has handled curves, snow, ice, mountain climbs and descents. I have had the oil changed and tires rotated every 5000 miles. I still love my Rogue as much as the first day I drove it! I love the cameras, the safety features, and mostly the automatic start and heated seats and steering wheel! When it 2 degrees outside it is so nice to get into a warm can in the morning on the way to work! I can even start it from my office through concrete walls without even seeing the car. I just know by count when she will start. I think this car is very comfortable. The only thing I DO not like are the buttons for the AWD, gas, Eco set. You can not see them without looking under the leftside steering wheel. I don't like taking my eyes off the road just to push AWD. And they are not lit up at night either. Other than that, Reba has been my girl for getting me safely to all destinations. It can be a bit noisy on highways. I have no problem with acceleration, but I don't ever get over 50 mph most days. All in all, the best car I have ever owned! I'm keeping her for a long time!

DON'T buy one

Just made my second payment on my 2018 Rogue I bought from Jeep Nissan of North Haven CT. I never got to put 1,000 miles on it when the transmission died. Thank goodness they had a new transmission on hand to replace mine. I was told it was covered under warranty, and it would take six days to replace and drum roll... they would not give me a loaner! Other than the car being VERY unreliable, she looks good, and is very comfortable but hey what can we expect for a little over twenty grand today. And it has inspired me to fix and hold onto my 2006 Ford F150 so I will have a reliable back up!

Best SUV for the price. Awesome style and comfort.

It's the best SUV with all features within decent price. You have all safety features like blind spot in the base model. I test drives Honda CRV and Rav4 and then decided to go for a Rogue.

Rogue system chassis control error and battery iss

I have replaced my battery 4 times. It has less than 18,000 miles on it. Now I’m having gps issues. Today it just stopped working with an error message Error chassis control system error. I bought this car as my husband and I wanted a dependable vehicle. I’m so dissatisfied and disappointed. After reading many reviews, it appears I may not be the only individual who is disappointed. I will now have to trade this in for a reliable vehicle

GREAT VALUE FOR A GREAT SUV

Our 2018 Rogue has been a trouble free means of transportation we love the SUV in every way. It is an excellent value and is a great all around multi purpose vehicle. Our local Nissan Dealer Henderson Nissan is an outstanding Dealership and gives us excellent service.

Not bad!

My Rogue SL is a very reliable suv; what I like most is very well build, strong and solid made it. Only I complain about a bit noise of the engine when I speed up the car and the GPS is not accurate enough; It was updated and stills results are not good. It saves gas in standard manner. On highway it’s stable with smooth driving. I recommend this car model if your family is small.

Problem with seat

Generally like the car, only reoccurring problem is the motorized seat. It was repaired once under warranty about 1year ago, same problem again, expensive repair. Not sure I will buy another.

Best Suv I've ever owned

Car met all my needs. Many people say it lacks power, but the 2018 rogue does just fine getting up to speed in fast traffic. Amazing value for buy, along with top safety features such as blind spot monitoring.
