I'm disappointed that they have not seen fit to offer dual climate control - or single climate control, for that matter (i.e., set the temperature and forget it). Most of the vehicles I've looked at do have that feature and I must admit to being a bit spoiled, since I have 2 other vehicles that do, as well. To me, that's a strike against the Rogue.
I really like the way it drives, for a small SUV. But I'm comparing it to other vehicles which fulfill the SUV role better (more space, more capable off-road, better towing capacity, etc.) with comparable mileage. So little things like the climate control add up.
#10 of 11 Rogue CVT transmission

bought my Rogue S FWD brand new with 33 miles on it back in August 2008. The car drives nice and smooth, it is stylish except for one weak point. The rpm shoots up to 4000 when going up the road and goes down as it picks up speed (very annoying). The Rogue does not have the pick up power to go up hills, it drives fine on flat roads, it feels like the tranny is slipping. I contacted the service dept at the dealership where i purchased the vehicle, but they said they cannot do anything about it. Few days ago, and with 6000 miles on the vehicle I traded the Rogue with Nissan Altima SE V6. I took a a big loss trading the Rogue with the Altima. There is a big difference between the way the Altima V6 CVT and the Rogue drives. I wish I bought back then a Honda CRV SUV or a Toyota RAV4 with 5 SPEED AT.
#11 of 11 Coffee grounds in engine compartment
May 14, 2011 (5:56 pm)
I took my 2009 NIssan Rogue SL AWD into the dealer's service department to have some warranty work done. At the same time I was negotiating a trade-in of the car for a newer model. While the car was in the shop a salesman went out to evaluate the condition of the car to arrive at a trade-in value. I was not present while he was taking a look at the car. We could not agree on a price - so the deal did not got through. A few days later, when I opened the hood, I noticed something resembling coffee grounds in two places within the engine compartment. At first I suspected that what I was looking at were animal droppings. That was not the case. Did I discover some dirty trick used by the dealer? Has anyone had a simlar experience? I just cannot believe someone would do something like this.
