This may be in the wrong spot and if it is please move to correct area in the forum.
I am going to upgrade from an Altima to the Rogue SV with SL package. With the Altima, my mpg started at about 27 hwy and increased to about a steady 32 mpg. The Rogue has the same motor with some different gearing I would imagine. Can I expect to see somewhere in the 28 - 30 mpg region with old person driving habits. You folks that have had the car for awhile may be able to give me an informed answer. Incidently, I am getting the car for about $26,880. Is this in a reasonable price for the St. Paul area? Thank you for any reply.

We've had our 2011 Rogue SV SL for about 3 weeks now and wanted to give our MPG estimates. So far we're getting 23.5mpg on average - mostly urban and city driving. A few highway trips here and there will raise that mpg, but overall we're happy with the mpgs.
Still need to put more miles on it before we get a true picture.

I have 32,000 miles on my Rogue 2010 AWD. 80% of my miles driven are highway miles. I am in sales covering 3 states. from the get go...I avg 27 mpg and I am THRILLED!! I drove a Volvo sedan prior...getting the same mileage.
I track mileage/mpg. every week btw. AND I carry sales samples (4 filled suitcases plus misc binders, etc...front seat and cargo is FILLED!) one passenger/me.
Very happy w/my Rogue. Purchased April 2010.

Only 800 something miles so far. 80% city with lots of hills, 20% freeway and usually in traffic (it's construction season!). A/C has been on constantly in this heat and since I'm a smoker, the driver window is always halfway open. SV SL AWD, averaging 25.6 mpg according to the onboard computer. Very pleased!

Last tank on a long highway trip my 2012 FWD averaged 28.5. Thats with AC on and using cruise on 70mph 50% of the the time. Om board said 28.9 so it was pretty close to the actual. I think I could average 31mpg or so in the cooler months without AC and not using cruise......but Im happy with 28.5 using some cruise.....much easier drive.
Ive averaged 26 mpg in the suburbs of North Ga with is very hilly. Thats according to the on board so real mpg is probably around 25.5. Not too bad for a vehile of this type.

We are puzzled. We had a Rogue rental in Yellowstone last summer and got 44 mpg, no kidding. We thought the gas gauge is broken because it would not move and upon returning were told, that the car gets 44 mpg. That's what we came up with, but couldn't believe, being used to a 2001 Odyssey Can the driving style make that big of a difference? I guess we drove mostly longer distances and mostly around 55 mph or lower.
We are car shopping now and I'm very annoyed that the posted mpg does not seem to reflect real world mpg for any given car really. Mostly being worse of course than better.
#120 of 126 2012 nissan rogue has vibration issues
Jun 21, 2012 (8:53 am)
I recently purchased a 2012 nissan rogue. Within the first couple of days i felt vibrations. The dealers states that this is normal for the cvt transmission in the rogue. The sales rep. also told me that other nissan owners have similar complaints. This vibration makes for a terrible driving experience. An automobile should run smoothly. It would appear that i am stuck with this car. Please people do not make the same mistake, find something else.

I recently purchased a 2012 nissan rogue. Within the first couple of days i noticed a terrible vibration coming from the car. The dealer told me this was a normal part of the way the cvt transmission in the rogue operates, he also said other new owners have voiced the same complaint. How can vibrations be an expected part of the way a automobile operates ? This makes for a terrible driving experience, its impossible to get used to something like this. Please people do not make the same mistake, find something else.

Not normal. Take it to another dealer. You shouldn't feel the CVT.

I recently purchased a 2012 nissan rogue. The next day i noticed vibrations coming from the car.I brought it back to the dealer several times. Finally i was told there was nothing they could do and that the vibrations were normal for the rogue cvt transmission. I was permitted to drive two others in their inventory, the vibrations were in those cars as well. I am presently stuck with this car. people stay clear away from this car, find something else.
