PS: Do NOT walk out of the dealership without any paperwork. If need be, write down why you were there and make them sign and date your visit. You can ask to speak with the owner of the dealership too. I spoke with the owner of the dealership, who personally introduced me to the the Service Director, who has been helping me, with one of their best technicians. If you stand there and demand it, they are going to want to get you on your way. Good luck.

I just bought mine 3 months ago and only have 1180 miles on it and already had two incidences. 1st was tire pressue monitor didn't light but had a flat on morning. Took it to Mr. Tire to get tire repaired $20 (and they didn't take if off or put it on), nothing in the tire, it leaked at the seal/rim. Which was most likely from me moving it to level ground to change the tire; but the monitor never lit even though I thought the tire looked a little low one day. 2nd just today "Service Engine Soon" lamp came on; after I wanted to check to see if the cruise control would cancel itself when I changed the gear using the shift paddle up or down. The cruise doesn't cancel for either action, but after that the "Service Engine Soon" lamp appeared. after reading these other posts I wished I had kept my 98 Nissan Kingcab I traded. It had 50K miles on it and got as good as gas mileage as this '08 Rogue. It was only in the shop once in 10 yrs.; and that was for a windshield washer pump (covered under warr.). This Rogue I'm alread disappointed in, a 2008 with everything except leather, power seats and navigation pkg. on it; but think I'm readty to trade it. Got shafted at the dealer on a finance charge, and Nissanusa doesn't really give a hoot. This was my sixth Nissan product, first one I've ever been disappointed in. PS all the others were King Cabs with manual shift.

Sorry to hear about this. Thanks for posting, let us know what happens with the service engine light. I hope you don't have as many issues or transmission issues like we all have.

Yes we have. We bought the new Rouge in April '08. At about 5500 miles we strated hearing the "NOISE". The service tech couldn't hear it at first. I did get it to make the sound and he heard it. He then drove it and he said he got it to do it worse. They contacted Niaasn tech line. They said that they were aware of the problem. The sound got worse and at 6800 miles they replaced the Trans. This would be the second transmission being the first came in the car. Then at about 12000 miles it reapeared. they didn't hesatate to replace the trans. The service manager could only say that it "must" be fixed but he could not guarantee it is a fix.
I'm sorry to say that the trans is already "grawling". The dealer won't do anything to help me and so far Nissan just want to give me a 100,000 mile warranty but I said no way. The attorney general office avised me not to. We I guess to lemon law suite is the next step. Has anyone ever done this in the state of NC. Has anybody been trough a "buy back" from Nissan. Hope this might help someone.

Well, I'm not sure if the lemon law would help. I'm in NY, and I have just recently gone to the BBB and filed a complaint. I have also contacted Nissan USA with a complaint as well. This is what got the owner of the dealership contact me. He was quite upset that I went to the BBB, but you know what, it got his attention. I just got my car back again last week, after bringing it back in the shop. They heard the gurgling noise last Sat morning, which is what made them say, leave it hear, Ill compare it to a new one and we'll take it from there. Meanwhile, Nissan USA advised it dosen't fall under the lemon law because all 10 times it's been in the shop they say, "can't duplicate customer's concerns..." UGH....They are brining the regional Engineer Matt here next week to review our concerns and check it out. We spent 2 hours last weekend at the dealers. They had the nerve to try to ask me to trade it in for a Marano....LOL And then, give me nothing for my Rogue...I wonder why. I am at 20000 miles, I know it's a lot but I've been having the same issue since I bought it. Nissan USA has told me that it dosen't qualify for a "buy back" or trade. I don't know what to do now, but deal with it. It's ashame. I can just hope that this Matt guy, engineer sees that something is wrong with it. I really believe the techs that work there, are all trained and told not to admit to what they really hear, see ect. Oh well. I hope someone on here gets a good resolution to share with us all. Thanks!

My dealer actualy told me to pursue the lemon law. I will contact the BBB Monday. In NC we have to go trough BBB Auto Line and they will assing a meator for our case. Nissan WILL buy the piece of junk back or just pay my off to get me off of there back. If that dosn't work then I will get me a lawer and sue them. I won't just give up.

Hi, I don't own a Rogue but have been considering one. There are so many stories out there about this transmission problem. It started in 08 and I read that back then the word was, problem don't know what to do, no fix wait, fixed, no not fixed, yes fixed............ on and on and now on this forum I see the same thing but only now into Feb of 09.
Does anyone have a clue or does Nissan have a clue of what is official on this crap? I have drove a Rogue and really liked it but I don't want to deal with this crap if I get a "bad one". I was thinking of a FWD one but I see the problem has jumped to at least one of those.
Is anyone following up anymore on this issue?

Kudos to you, kbz1960 for waiting on getting one. I am still following up with Nissan. I have heard back as of last week from Nissan USA, that they do not have to buy my vehicle back, or trade it in for me. (As there is nothing wrong...) I have an apt with the area engineer that apparently only deals with things like this. He's flying in on Tuesday for me to meet with him at 9 am. I'm going to be driving it with him, and have to include a written description of what the vehicle does. Just within the past week, not only do I have the "gurgling noise" but it's also idling a lot higher and will go up and down while in idle. I will post back on Tuesday or Wednesday next week and give all an update. I have almost 21k miles on my car...does anyone else have close to this on theirs?
Mar 22, 2009 (2:50 pm)
Hi candle4u, I'm so sorry to hear you are having so much trouble. Do you have an AWD or a FWD? I hope that Nissan does right by you. I have reading on another forum where people have gone to the BBB or said that they were going to file a lemon law and all of a sudden Nissan approved a new transmission for them. Also where I read some had good luck getting a new one other not so much and the info on there is a fix etc.
I really hope that they either fix yours or you can get them on a lemon law. I will wait awhile and maybe they are just going to lose a potential new customer.

This thing with Niaasn is just ridicules. We have had two transmission put within 16000 miles. Empire Nissan in Wilkesboro, North Carolina is the dealer where I bought the Rough. I did call the owner’s personal cell phone (He messed up and gave the number) I told him how dissatisfied the I was. I told him that he was not a man of his word and he got really mad at me. So then I called BBB Auto Line and things changed, or so I thought. BBB ask me if the Rouge was fixed and I told them it was already making some noise. They got in touch with Nissan and the man from consumer affairs called me and told me the he has filed for a buy back. He did want me to take it back to the dealer and let them check out the car. I told him I didn't want to but he told me I had to. I called BBB and ask them if I had to and they said that I did. As long as we are in litigation. I knew that they would not hear the noise, because they wouldn't want to. So I did just go trade this piece of junk off. I did not trade it for another Nissan. Because of this I will NEVER buy another Nissan. I will and have told everyone not to but a Rouge or any Nissan. There is more to this night mare but I don’t have time. I hope that this info will help someone.
