I had the same problem as you are having! I bought my rouge 2008 in feb of 2009 and I heard niosecs like you are hearing since March 2009 I took it into dealer 3 times and had to scream at them that something needed to be fixed and that I knew it was the transmission because I had read on here about ewvertyones problems so in Oct of 2010 with only 15,000 miles on it they finailly replaced my transmission, but 3 days later I started hearing that same "rattleing" niose so I took it back to Nissian dealer and they refused to hear the niose and told me to just keep driving it... To make a long story short, I couldn't take it anymore and got so frustrated that I traded it in on Jan. 31st,2011 with only 18,000 miles on it for a 2011 Ford Escape Limited !!! I have had my new ford for over 6 months now and am sooo happy it's twice the car the rouge was....

Just had my rogue at the dealer today for the same complaint service manager states that the noise is coming from the holes in the roof rack were the optional crossbars would mount. He said his guys checked the alignment of the glass and it was okay. He then stated they put electrical tape over the mounting holes and the noise went away. He took me out to show me the holes, and they had already removed the tape. I'm a little skeptical to say the least, especially since I noticed a little water leakage at the car wash. I will try the electrical tape trick myself, if this doesn’t work for me than it's off to a new dealer.
#164 of 208 Rogue 2011 auto air conditioning
Sep 03, 2011 (6:14 am)
I just bought this car recently, and I've read the manual and watched the DVD on the automatic a/c. The middle dial which controls the temperature does not "blink" twice to indicate that the a/c has kicked into auto mode. I can get a recirulation light and the outside air light, but when you press the dial about "1.5 seconds", I don't get any blinking, as demonstrated on the DVD. It's not a big deal - but it's a brand new car and I'd like it to work properly... I've made an appt w/the dealer to bring it in...Any ideas what this could be? Maybe a fuse? I wonder how complicated this will be to correct..it's such a small issue...I have nightmares that they'll take the whole dash apart! Thanks for your imput.
#165 of 208 Rear brakes 2009 Rogue S - ceramic or semi-metallic
Sep 04, 2011 (7:08 pm)
Need to replace the rear pads on my 2009 'S'. Anyone know if the OEM pads are ceramic or semi-metallic? I know the DX pads are premium pads and will they provide better stopping power than the ceramics?
#166 of 208 2011 Nissan Rogue SV AWD Bad Differential
Sep 08, 2011 (11:17 am)
The new differential lasted all of 1,500 miles. The car is now at 5,000 miles and is going into the shop for the second replacement differential (this makes 3 in the car now in the first 5,000 miles). I'm not sure if I feel safe in this car any longer because of the possibility of the wheels locking up due to differential issues. Do I have any options?
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 the 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...

#168 of 208 2011 SL AWD Rogue Check Engine Light
Oct 23, 2011 (5:16 pm)
I've had my Rogue for 2 weeks now and it only has 500 miles on it. While I was driving yesterday the car started thrusting back and forth and was making sounds as if the car was running out of gas, except I had a full tank so I knew that wasn't the case. A few minutes later the check engine light came on and the thrusting got worse. Of course this happened Saturday night and the dealership is closed on Sundays so I have not spoken with anyone yet about the situation. I will have it towed to the dealer tomorrow and will update on the problem later. Has this happened to anyone else?

I bought my 2011 Rogue in December 2010 and just noticed this when I drove to NY in September. I brought the car in for service and they said that the newer Nissan's transmissions are not meant to hold on hills. I feel like I'm driving a stick shift and am looking behind me to see how close the car is to me.
