I totally agree, not be mention that at $33K +, the least they could do is stick a
V-6 that takes regular in it. I am sure they could put the V-6 from the Accord in it with little trouble. If they did, I would be buying one tomorrow. Right now, I am all mixed up on what I want, the BMX X3 is nice but costly and needs premium gas and the new Infiniti EX35 is right up with the BMW. I might just wait and look into the new Toyota Venza crossover. Anyone know of any future plans that Acura may have for the RDX? Thanks.

If you really truly need AWD then the RDX SH-AWD system is head and shoulders above, better, than the Rogue which can only route 30% of the engine torque to the rear. Basically the Rogue is just another patently unsafe, squirrelly handing F/AWD vehicle.
If they were to "clean up" the super-cluttered dash area of the RDX I might even buy one.

OK IF the Rogue is "Basically the Rogue is just another patently unsafe, squirrelly handing F/AWD vehicle" what should the common man/budget buyer look at. And I've yet to see all the posts complaining about the basic awd vehicles (CRV, RAV4, Rogue) that are "patently unsafe and squirrelly handling", I guess all the owners are still in the dark on their poorly designed vehicles.

Pretty good video but what does that have to do with the Rogue? Did they perform the same test on the Rogue and I missed it? Maybe you meant to paste a different link. I'm looking for performance "Cons" on the Rogue since I have finally narrowed my search down to the Rogue or the Outback (CR-V just got cut). I'd like to see the same test performed w/ a Rogue. If it fails miserably, like most others, I'll buy an Outback.

The Rogue was not tested. I also noted the video cut out the disclaimer about real world driving condtions versus the test. That being said IF I had to deal with snow and ice a Subaru would get a lot of consideration. I drive fwd in my area so the point irelavant to me.

Since the Roque can never apportion more than 30% of the engine torque to the rear the video has importance.

Get your facts straight man....
2008 Nissan Rogue AWD
From a Stand Still: 50% Front and 50% Rear.
While Driving: Front Wheel Drive Only.
Cornering: 30% Rear and 70% Front.
The Video was hype. You must be a Subaru sales person......

No, retired, computer manufacturing/sales.
I thought that I got that directly from the Nissan site, I'll go back and look.
Lexus fan here.
And no, the video seems true to the facts to me.
