We bought a Rogue about a little more than a month ago (2011 SL AWD) and it has less than 1K miles. On the highway, starting at 60mph, there is an annoying wind whistling noise present, as if there is a wind leak. I am not sure as to where it's coming from, but I think it's either from the front window(s) or the sunroof area. It minimizes a bit when I close the interior sunroof cover.
It's really annoying to me since I don't ALWAYS drive with the music on (great Bose system, btw), and sometimes I like to just have a quiet ride on the highway and this noise definitely impedes that. Plus, it's disappointing because the car is great and, otherwise, has such a quiet (except in the rain) and nice interior. Doesn't really give you the quality feeling when you're driving a $28K brand new car and have wind leaking somewhere, whistling annoyingly at you when driving at normal highway speeds. BTW, the faster you drive, the more noticeable it gets.
Does anyone else have this issue? If so, what have you done to take care of it, and will the Nissan dealer fix it?

I have the same problem and will schedule an appointment with the dealership to report the problem. I noticed that there's a small open space between the sunroof and the rubber seal. Will give an update later.

In my case, the Nissan dealer fixed the cause of the noise.
Here's the infofrom service report: "Sunroof glass slightly out of alignment. Realignedsunroff glass to better fit roof opening."
All ok now from my end.
#154 of 208 Noise when accelerator pressed
Jul 24, 2011 (3:48 pm)
Hi. I leased a 2010 Rogue in February 2010. It is the 360 AWD version.
All seemed well until a month ago when I got up to 22,000 miles. This is when I noticed a whistling sound when on the highway and the accelerator is depressed. It seems to happen around 65mph. Of course the dealership claimed they couldn't duplicate my concern. I am making another appointment and will ride with them this time to point out noise. Has anyone else experienced this time? I was thinking of buying out the lease, but not sure now.
#155 of 208 Strange metallic thump from under 2011 Rogue!!!
Jul 25, 2011 (8:44 am)
Beware of a metallic thump when reversing with wheel turned or going forward. If it feels like your AWD is slipping or grinding it may very well be! I had these issues at just over 500 miles and took it into the dealer. The rear differential is shot and the car isn't road safe, so take it into the dealer immediately! According to the dealer, this is a manufacturer's defect and they are replacing the $2,000 part for free under warranty of course.
The mechanic explained that bolts were stripped on the inside of th differential and the thumping noise I heard was the entire diff moving around...once again, if you have any doubts get it checked out by Nissan. Oh, and it will take nearly a week to get your car back so make them get you a rental.
I will keep up to date if anything further is found...

we have had this car for five months and it had 43k miles on it over the course of 5 months it now has just folled over to 50k.
my friend and i were in town last saturday i thought something was wrong but she told me i was crazy,but as we got into town where the stoplights where my car would not accelarate the cars in front of me would continusly be a good 100 feet ahead of me before my car even registered i was pressing the gas.
i thought it was the oil since i was overdue but i took it to the grease pig in fay,ar and they said that everything was fine and my oil wasnt bad at all, so needless to say i left wihtout getting it changed.
we then proceeded to go to th place we bought it and they told us it wasnt there problem that we needed to go to nissan. we went and they also didnt do anything as it ran fine for them and also fine untill i got home.
blah blah it did it again once.
but yesterday i got into my car to go to the store and i thought my car was going to blow up.
the rpms would staty at 3 even though it was floored it sounded like i had it in neutral, as i turned it sounded like i had drums in the back of my car.( being 81/2 months pregnant makes me a little paranoid) my da is a mercades mechanic and told my husband and i it wasnt drivable so this morning we had it towed to the dealer can someone please tell me what is going on?????

policewife. I'm in the same boat as you...baby on the way and can't afford putting ourselves at risk. This is awful. You have to look up your state's lemon law. You can do this online. For example, NY....sucks. The issue must be attempted to be repaired 4 times within a 2 year period or 18,000 miles. Because this happens to us on long trips we will miss the cut off for it to be a lemon. Were at almost 14K miles already and it will be 2 yrs old in March. Find my post under CVT recall...I put some info in there regarding who I've contacted thus far to complain, etc. I'm also in touch with Nissan corporate trying to work something out. I do not feel safe in this car. I do not want to be crossing the GWB or going through one of the hudson tunnel crossings with a baby in my car and getting stuck....no where to go. It's insane. Let me know if anything and GL with the car and the baby!
