Yes I do. I have a 2009 Rogue, with only 3500 miles I had the transmission placed, now it has 4400 miles and I am told it needs another replacement transmission, as it took them 2000 miles to identify the growling sound as being the transmission and given that I have signed up for a 36 month lease, I equate that to approximately 20 transmissions at $5000 a piece (parts and labor). You would think that Nissan would grab the bull by the horns and resolve these issues once and for all. At least for me it is a lease, therefore I just keep taking it back and complaining, if I had paid $30000 screen price straight out of my pocket I would be truly gutted.

I bought my SL AWD Rogue in Oct '07 and in the last few weeks I started hearing a rattling noise coming from "somewhere". I took the car to the dealer this past Saturday, since I was nearing the 36K mark. They told me a screw was loose from the Heating Shield. Not sure how that could happen. I'm starting to wonder about this car. I also hear this different noise when I turn on the AC, dealer told me it's "normal".....not so sure....

Everyone needs to read all the forums about these issues, since consumer complaints has logged 3 very dangerous incidents: 2 owners got into accidents and the air bags did not deploy at all, including the side curtains. One woman took her Rogue into the dealership twice about the airbags, since the first dealership 'test' didn't fix the light on problem, (same as ours). She then went to start the car one morning and the air bags deployed.
A few owners are posting complaints about windows exploding (new to me). One guy said the rear quarter window exploded and one said his sunroof shattered. The dealer fixed the sunroof saying it was defective.
Our 2008 FWD is lunging forward badly during downshifting (it's even scaring me now). This will be the third time back to dealer, so far we have had no luck in getting anything resolved.
Just lately we are also getting very loud lifter noises, but only sometimes. Sounds like the valves are going to come through the heads, is anyone else experiencing this?

New to this forum. Just saw your posting. I bought my Rogue new 12/31/07...was looking for a Japanese made vehicle...guess choosing the Rogue was a big mistake. After only a few months the engine sounded like a diesel...took in to dealer several times, but service said that they could not reproduce. This past winter the noise changed & sounded like lifter noise when the vehicle was cold. Left overnight so they would have cold...service heard problem then. Nissan had dealership change the lifters. Still heard the noise & got increasingly louder when cold...gave it 2 weeks before I took it back in. Nissan told the dealer to put in new short block...Was initially told that Nissan Tech Line said they were aware of the problem & that a piston supplier sent a bad batch of pistons...supplier had corrected the problem. I called Customer Affairs & asked Nissan to purchase the vehicle back & told the specialist on call back what Tech line had said. Then the story changed that tech line had said I must have a bad piston. The review board said NO. I called back & called back...no response...called the 800 number & an internal message was sent for the CA specialist to call me & was told she would call me back this past Mon...Tue called the 800 number another internal message was sent & asked for a message to be sent to the specialist's supv. Got a call from the supervisor...I explained that the vehicle should qualify under the Lemon Law...asked if Nissan would consider negotiating. Got a call back from the original specialist today (Fri 05/01/09) & was told that the board had decided to not do anything to help me. The dealership's service mgr now says that the #2 piston was bad & scarred the cylinder wall. I would be all in for a class action!

Just got the Rogue back from Universal City Nissan yesterday (third time in for the transmission) they said nothing wrong with the car at all. I had printed up all the postings from this forum as well as 3 others. He basically could care less. My wife has to drive down a grade every day on the 405 and it's scaring the hell out of her.
They gave us a 2009 Altima for the rental car. Transmission (they have a CVT as well), shifted perfectly with no problems, very smooth. I mentioned this fact to the service advisor and he didn't bat an eyelash.
We still have the air bag light going on when some people sit in the front passenger seat, turns out Nissan has that set for over 120 pounds only. So my wife's co-worker, who has cancer, has no air bag protection in a Rogue. Be advised the same goes for all of you, a 119 pounds or less front passenger has zero air bag protection in a Rogue. Am I crazy or is the federal standard 40 pounds or less has to be in a car seat?!
We have had it and are contacting a Lemon Law attorney next week, will keep you all posted.

New to this forum .
I have a 2008 Nissan Rogue SL AWD. Bought it in July of 2008.
I think it might be me or just bad luck, but many bad things have happened to me + this car since I Purchased it .
I bought this car in haste, as my old 1996 Honda CR-V had had its run, So I fell in love with this car.
I've been in 3 Car accidents with this car ( VERY Minor, Dent/Bumper stuff -- Not my fault )
And lately, the strangest thing happened.
I was driving home on a hot and sunny afternoon from work, on the Number 1 Highway I take to and from work, and I was the only one on the road for at least a kilometer both ways, When, All of a sudden, My Sunroof Exploded !
It scared me so much ! It sounded like a bomb went off right above my car.
I stopped to the side of the highway to investigate, and I was bewildered.
Drove back into town, went to my Nissan Dealership, and I was SOL there. They claim it was a rock, But How? No cars around me, and I didn't go under an overpass, and there was no rock, and the sunroof appeared to have exploded OUTWARD. They told me it was an insurance claim.
So now, I have to Fork up 250 bucks + Possible Premium rate increase to get a new sunroof installed. FRUSTRATING !
My son told me it was possible, but rare that my car is almost airtight, and that the heat caused the air in my car to expand, and thus caused my Sunroof to burst.
Kinda thinking twice and hitting my head about my hasty purchase.... sadly.
So, If anyone has any similar scenarios or anything to say about this 'incident', please let me know.

Afraid I learned an expensive & valuable lesson. I have had engine problems with my 2008 Rogue. Only took in specifically for this twice during the first year...Have found out that many states' lemon law requires 4 trips within the first year. I went thru Nissan's Consumer Affairs dept...What a joke!!! I even called them back & almost begged them to even negotiate with me...They again said that they chose not to do anything for me. Have talked to a lemon lawyer and am told I will have to file under the federal lemon law. They say they will ask for a replacement vehicle or half the sticker...I don't want to keep the vehicle. Hope you have better luck.
