#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...

noticed my wife's new rogue will not hill hold in Drive (rolls backward), never seen this in any automatic and my new altima and two previous muranos (CVT's) held on hills. Anyone having this same experience? Thanks

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.

I had purchased a new Rogue last week. I was very unhappy with my experience at the dealership and I have complained. I feel I was scammed and I took the bait hook line and sinker!! It doesn't help that my front head light went out and now I'm told its the assembly not the bulb and my car is the first one they have had with this problem!!! I hope my misgivings will not continue. The dealership is telling me they want to make me happy but all I hear is" we want to make you happy". How do they plan on making me happy?

Has the problem been fixed? And how? I'm having the same problem and they can not seem to find the problem.

I have a question. I have 2010 Rogue and noticed that on my window/door lock control that the door lock and window lock do not light up. The images are there but they do not light up I have been in several cars and they did in those. I have the right accessory package but I'm being told that is not the case. Can anyone tell me if they have the same issue.

I also have a leak in the back but it's in the spare tire compartment. Don't notice any water leaking in from anywhere. Strangely there are 3 drain plugs under the tire. I wonder why.
#175 of 208 2008 Rogue SL AWD differential trouble
Dec 07, 2011 (12:08 pm)
Had a flat rear tire, drove to the auto shop with the spare, got 2 new rear tires, then its making noise when I drive, a mechanic checked it out and said its the differential and $2300.00 to repair. He also mentioned the car is still new and it shouldn't have had this kind of damage. Taking it to the dealer and hopefully its covered by warranty. Any comments or suggestions, please.
