I have not been able to get a resolution on this issue, but it is a known defect. Nissan sent an engineer out to inspect my car in January, and they have now had the opportunity to correct the issue five times.
I experience the popping noise, and my navigation reboots itself. The console has actually shut down entirely at some points. Nissan has tried to work with me by offering me free services for my patience. As I stated initially, this problem has been ongoing since I was driving the car home from the dealership that first day. I find the popping noise, and the rebooting to be a substantial impairment to the use and the value of my automobile. I'm really considering pursuing a lemon law claim, and have a call into that same Nissan engineer to see what my options are.
You need to follow-up with this. Nissan knows it is an issue, and they are willing to attempt to accommodate you. I'm looking for the fully functioning car that I spent my good money on - which as of this date I have not been able to realize or enjoy unencumbered by this issue.
Also - I'm curious what state you are in because Nissan states that this issue is specific to Florida.

I finally took my 2011 rogue in and they had to reallign it. it is fine now, but waiting to see if it happens again. They had to replace the front rotors on the brakes while it was in the shop due to a vibration I had when braking. Man wish I did not buy this car.
#195 of 208 Vent Control Valve

I have a 2008 SL rogue. Has anyone had problems with their vent control valve?
My service engine light came on, took it in. They told me it was the vent control valve. I have yet to get it replaced, mostly because I'm sure I can find a mechanic cheaper than the dealership.

It is the air-conditioning vents -- not the door insulation or the sunroof. Mine – I have a Rogue SV SLP 2011 -- was doing that with AC on and with the fan at higher RPM's, as well as when driving on a freeway at higher speeds when there was high frontal air intake, especially noticeable on windy days. I took it to the dealer and they found there was nothing wrong with the AC per se, and recommended me to re-adjust the vent fins (flaps) to wider angled positions. I wound up doing just that, and the whistling noise went away... I still can hear the noise come back when I keep the flaps ajar -- they need to be either fully opened or closed, or carefully positioned at a certain, wider angles. Hope this helps...

I have the exact same car and have just been told the differential needs replaced at a cost of $3000.00 installed. Not covered under warranty. This vehicle has been a lemon since day one.

I'm curious, how many miles are on the vehicle? I would think the differential is part of the drive-train.

Nissan dealer did take care of the differential problem, no charge, thank goodness! Mileage was 43,000 when we purchased from the dealer.

Update - In March of this year I was able to have my radio replaced - Nissan stated that this was a manufacturer defect in the radio. I have not experienced the same issues with the radio, but now have a popping noise when the radio first initiates. I have a meeting tomorrow with a Nissan representative who is meeting with me at the local dealership. I'll have to see what he says about it tomorrow, and report back. All in all, I regret making this purchase, and wish that I had bought something else. I will obviously stay the course with this car, but will take more time test driving and researching the next car when that time comes. This situation has been an absolute nightmare. But/for the people at Nissan's corporate office, I would have been done with this car long ago. Nissan Consumer Affairs has been an absolute pleasure to deal with, very responsive, and they really attempt to make it right for the customer. This is just a case of a bad apple off of the line.
#201 of 208 grumbling noises and vibrations from rogue cvt tranmissions
Jul 11, 2012 (9:28 am)
The nissan rogue i purchased 3 months ago has grumbling noises and vibrations coming from the rogue cvt transmission. I brought it back several times to garden city nissan several times.the explanation each time was that they could find nothing wrong. Finally on my last visit i was told that these issues were normal for the rogue. The cvt transmission does not run as smoothly as a regular automatic transmission. This makes for a terrible driving experience. If i trade this car in now i would take a huge financial loss. I do not know how any one could be comfortable driving this car. Please people do not make the same mistake, find something better.
#202 of 208 Turn Signal - blinking RED / design flaw?
Aug 29, 2012 (7:13 pm)
5 years ago, I drove a 1998 Ford Contour and it stalled (no gas), I was stopped at a red light. Blinkers on. Car behind didn't move, 30 sec later honking start, the dude get off his car approaches me to argue, REALLY. Told I ain't going anywhere w/o gas. He didn't offer to help but left. I later notice my hazard light was blinking red which is less visible then orange.
Similar thing happened with my Rogue. I signal ahead to switch from left turning lane to regular lane. The other car was 300 ft back when I switched lanes. As I was turning (Rogue hesitated a little - next post) the b*tch behind honked continuosly, cut in front me and kept staring at me from her rearview mirror. I later on checked my turn signal and darn it blink RED !!! Also on other occasion when I signal car behind don't slow down, they do when I drive my '02 Accord.
