Sorry, I was exaggerating.
You floor it and you get a lot of noise but it doesn't really get moving. Using the word "moving" was too generous.
I apologize for that.

#7284 of 7355 First Rogue
Aug 20, 2012 (4:37 am)
Just purchased my first Rogue, in fact it is my first "small" vehicle. Been driving Yukons an PKup trucks.
I live on a dirt and gravel road so clearance was an issue, the Rogue does fine.
After a short break-in we pulled a small trailer and road bike to Casper, WY from Amarillo, TX with no problems at all. Had no problem staying with the 75+ traffic on I-25. Got 17 MPG.
Left the trailer and bike at Casper and toured Yellowstone then back to Amarillo. Avg 29 MPG
At Casper we picked up son and daughter-in-law. I let him drive and tested the back seat with my wife. I was impressed and fully satisfied with the room and view from the back seat.
Had no problem getting in or out. I am 5'7" and about 230.
The CVT was a great mountain highway auto, going up or down easily with no operation, sound, or vibration issues.
I note in previous posts the mention of a longer, or better warranty on some competitive models. At purchase I was able to purchase the additional 100,000 mile warranty for the Rogue and still be under cost of other makes which have a 100,000 mile warranty.
In truth, on those models which offer a long warranty, the buyer is still paying for it.
Seems all makes of small SUV's are beginning to look just alike, wife and I cannot tell them apart.
The Rogue looks different (except for its big brother Murano) and we like that.

Seriously Driver735, I don't mean to bash you anything, but this is an SUV its an all wheel drive crossover and not your grandmothers Cadillac. If you want something that is smooth ride go with a Mercedes or a Lexus. Its Nissan they can only do so much in terms of ride quality whilst still giving you the ability to afford the vehicle. So if you want something that rides smooth get one of the previous mentioned brands or go to an altima or some other car that is meant for ride quality, but you are right a car should drive smooth however a Rogue is an SUV not a car.
