Thousands of satisfied Rogue owners would disagree with you. I have the same CVT in my 2008 Altima and had no problems adjusting to it from a V-6 Nissan Maxima. Oh, and have had almost 5 yrs of "trouble-free" driving..... Not sure what "vibrations" you are experiencing. Perhaps you do have a real problem, I don't know. Did you not notice it during your test drives?

Local street flooding is a problem in my area.

Really, you shouldn't be trying to go through flood waters in any vehicle. If you don't get washed downstream, you'll hydrolock and destroy the engine.
SUV's water fording ability

I thoroughly agree with Steve's comment about driving through flood waters. I'll add that CUVs are generally intended for softroading (grass/beaches) & driving through snow v. true offroading and plowing through creeks & other deep water.
My AWD Mitsubishi Outlander GT has a minimum of 8.5"; most of it's more like about 11". But I still wouldn't drive through a flooded street unless it was visibly shallow and even then I'd probably crawl through as to not splash or create a wake.

Why 2WD only?

It's just localized street flooding until the drainage system can catches up.
Sometime challenging for a passenger car, but trucks and higher profile SUV's don't have any problem.

Didn't get it! Went back the next day and dealer was packed so left. By Monday the car was gone! No big deal as I wouldn't have been able to get a mechanic to look at it until Tues. Oh well, the search goes on....now zeroing in on the 2012 Equinox....

You still lookin' at the GT? If they deal down that's a lot of car for the money.

Looks like the CX-5 is the highest 4x2
Think the redesigned RAV4 is going to get lowered like the new CRV
Don't know if I can handle the stiff ride/road noise from the Mazda although the m.p.g. looks enticing
