i'm sorry to hear that you're new Rogue isn't doing well. i got the 2008, SL AWD back in December, 2007 and now have over 50k miles on it and i haven't had a SINGLE problem with it at all. i live in VA and it's driven to NY a couple of times, FL and DC at least a couple of dozen times; compounded with my commuting about 160 miles/day, with 90% highway. i average 27 mpg - sometimes up to 30 mpg - and with very regular oil changes, don't have a single complaint. i love the moonroof, BOSE sound system, bluetooth phone and xenon headlights. i test drove the RAV4, CR-V and CX-7 before settling on the Rogue and haven't regretted it since. i'll let you know its doing when i hit 100k

I had read that the 2008 model had various transmission problems. Does anyone
know if this was adressed on the 2009 model? My daughter wants to buy one.

i've had the 2008 Rogue for over 50k miles and haven't had a single problem with it. i'm not easy on it (i'll accelerate quickly on highway onramps, play with the manual shift about 25% of the time), but i'm not abusive on it either.

I have a 2008 Nissan Rogue SL FWD base model that I bought in November 2007. I now have 34000 miles on it and have had no problems. I work out of my Rogue and drive it every day. I'm getting 23 - 26 mpg.

Apparhently the "Service Engine Soon" warning lamp isn't that big of a deal. I downloaded the manual from Nissan to make it easier to find info quickly. Well don't look for "Service Engine Soon" you won't find crap, you need to search for MIL or "Malfunction Indicator Lamp". Only states to check the gas cap make sure its on tight, then ok to drive if not flashing and then if it stays on after a few re-starts then take it to the dealer. So I guess I'll just watch it, sent Nissan an email in regards to this haven't heard from them yet.

Same thing happened to me when my '07 Highlander was new. I hadn't tightened the gas cap enough. Scared me a bit, but it's been flawless since then. Hope yours ends up the same.

Last week I traded in my 2008 Rogue S FWD with only 6000 miles on it with 2009 V6 Altima, because of the transmission issue on the Rogue. Before u buy test drive it not just on flat streets but uphills. I took a beating on the trade in.

Doesn't the Altima use the same transmission, the CVT?

The Altima V6 I just purchased uses CVT transmission too, the rpm on the V6 altima stays within 2000-2500 as i go up hills, unlike the rogue that shoots to 4000 as i go uphills. I like my 2009 Altima V6 SE. it's worth the money.
