I know what you mean. I purchased a 2011 Nissan Rogue SL in March 2011 new and in Oct of the same year I started hearing a wind noise which gets louder as you speed up. If I close the sun roof cover it is less, but for paying 28000.00 for this car, this is not exceptable. I am taking it to the dealership to see what they can do. I will update on what I find out.

Driving habbit and weather can affect the mpg. Try to replace a K&N air filter, it is worth.

Hey, I've been wanting to update you all on the sunroof whistling issue. Meant to get back to y'all a LONG time ago, but just haven't had the chance and kept forgetting. My bad! Anyway...I took our Rogue to Nissan MONTHS ago and told them about the whistling noise coming from the sunroof. They test-drove the car and heard the noise themselves. They called to let me know that sunroof was misshaped and that was what was causing the noise. They ordered a new sunroof, which they installed in the car, and the noise has totally gone away! Since then, the car has been nice and quiet, as it should be (road noise when raining, notwithstanding). I do believe there is a TSB out there for it. So, if you're experiencing the same thing, then Nissan should get it fixed for you.
Ever since, we have been enjoying our "Black Betty" thoroughly. I really enjoy the Rogue. It's been comfortable, very reliable (no problems other than the whistling wind noise issue, which has been fixed), and now, after it having been broken-in (close to 8K miles, now), I find it fun to drive, as well. I've even grown to love the steering: it's not as direct and fun to drive as my last Mazda, but it's close. The Rogue, though, is definitely faster and still handles well.
I was looking forward to testing out the Rogue more in the snow, but we haven't had a real winter here in NYC. We had two days of snow all in all and my experience in the Rogue in the snow was fantastic. Was wishing I had more snow days, but hey, I'll keep wishing.

Not that I know anything about why this is happening, but I just wanted to let you know that you're not alone. I have an '11 AWD, too, and the city mileage is atrocious. If my mileage is purely city, computer displays an average of about 15 to, stretching it, 17. On the highway, though, it does great: I've gotten up to a 30 average, but more like 28/29.

Feb 02, 2012 (7:23 pm)
Hi, I was wondering if anyone else has had an alternator problem. I purchased my 2012 Rogue in November. A 1,500 miles in traffic I smelt a bad burning smell and saw some smoke, I called my salesman and said to drive straight to the dealer. It ended up needing a new alternator! Since they replaced it, I notice my car vibrates now. My husband filed my tank up completely, we drove about 130 miles and the gauge never moved. The next day, after driving about 5 miles, it finally moved to half a tank! Sounds like the 2012's are having the same problem as the 2011 gas gauge issues. I also experience the loud noises but I do not have a sunroof. It gets really loud the faster I go and when it rains, it sounds like it is raining in my car! Any suggestions are greatly recommended. Thanks

Yes, I am now having the same problem with my new 2011 SL Rogue. I have talked to them and they told me the sunroof gets out of line. I am setting up an appt to have them fix it. I love this car, but can not tolerate wind noise like this.... I have also noticed the blue tooth does not listen very well. Everytime I say someones name and use "cell" behind the name it cancels the request... I guess it does not do well with southern accents.. LOL.... And I notice it is worse when you first get in the car and it is cold outside. Works better once the car gets warm inside. anyone else have this problem?

I have had this problem a few times and finally figured out that the key insert was in the wrong position. Next time it happens check where the key insert is and make sure you have it in off position.. this should help. It took me forever to figure it out.. Hope this helps you..

K&N is a brand name. This company makes air and oil filter for most of the cars. K&N's air filter last for many years, you only need to clean and re-oil the filter once every 2-3 years. A normal air filter is made by paper so it cannot be re-used. Shop around, many local and online stores carry K&N's.
