You are in the Nissan Rogue
What is this discussion about?
Nissan Rogue, SUV
Feb 07, 2011 (10:05 am)
File a complaint with the NTSB, stating safety issues; because it is! If you run out of gas because of a faulty gas gauge, in the middle of no where, or in a blizzard, you, or your family, will have some serious safety issues!
Nissan knows about this, but are doing nothing about it. My neighbor just bought a 2011, and his gas gauge is already broken.
REPORT IT, here, at the online link on this page.
If you have to pay to fix this defect by replacing the cluster, you're looking at a $1000.00.

I'm in Montreal Canada, and have the same Fuel Gauge problem on a 2009 Rogue.
Taking it in for second time this week for the same repair.
Makes me think lon and hard about buying another Nissan product.

My AWD Rogue was purchased new in 2008. Wife drives it exclusively. December 2011 mileage turned 16,000 and gas gauge level failed to register full on fill-up. Now at 16,500 miles and have to fill tank to over-flow level to assure it's full. Contacted dealer since there is a TSB on issue and quoted $888. for sender/sub-sender unit and labor. Filed a complaint with NTHSA on 1/9/2012. Registered complaint with Nissan North America. Nissan states: there is no active campaign or recall for this problem.
Will never buy another Nissan. This is a defect and warrants a recall.

Do not worry. I had the same problem with a 2005 Nissan Pathfinder LE. There is a recall for that part, but only applies to the 2006 Nissan Pathfinders. Go to your parts department and find out if the part for your Rogue is the same one as the one for the 2006 Pathfinder. If it is (and I can bet on it) contact Nissan USA directly and not the dealer. Ask them that you would like the part replaced since it is obviously defective as stated on the recall for the 06 Nissan Pathfinder. Document the case number and follow up. I was so upset because the recall only started with the 06 even though the 05 had the exact same part. After I did this in a couple of days out of goodwill the factory accepted to replace it and I went to the dealer. It got fixed free of charge.

I just replied to the thread. If your vehicle has the same part # as the 2006 Nissan Pathfinder, contact Nissan Usa directly and have them authorize the replacement.
Here is a copy of the recall:
Recall ID # 80845 - FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE:STORAGE:AUXILLARY TANK Hide Details
Recall Date MAR 03, 2010
Component FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE:STORAGE:AUXILLARY TANK
Model Affected Pathfinder
Potential Units Affected 80689
MAR 03, 2010
2006 Nissan Pathfinder
NISSAN IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2006 AND MODEL YEAR 2008 FRONTIER, XTERRA AND PATHFINDER VEHICLES. THE MOLDED FUEL TANK SHELLS CAN DEFORM, CAUSING THE FUEL SENDER FLOAT ARM TO CONTACT AN EMBOSSMENT MOLDED INTO THE TANK SHELL CAUSING THE INSTRUMENT PANEL FUEL GAUGE TO SHOW THAT THE VEHICLE HAS APPROXIMATELY ONE QUARTER TANK WHEN THE FUEL TANK IS EMPTY.
THIS COULD CAUSE THE VEHICLE TO RUN OUT OF GAS AND STALL IN TRAFFIC, INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.
DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE FUEL LEVEL SENDING UNIT INSIDE THE FUEL TANK WITH A NEW ONE THAT HAS A MODIFIED FLOAT ARM. THIS SERVICE WILL BE PERFORMED FREE OF CHARGE. THE SAFETY RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON OR BEFORE MARCH 22, 2010. OWNERS MAY CONTACT NISSAN AT 1-800-647-7261.
Potential Units Affected:
NISSAN NORTH AMERICA, INC.

Did you see post about recall for same problem, on a different model; it's the same part! There is no doubt that there is a problem with this device, on all the models it's in; unfortunately, they have the people that make the recall happen in their pockets. I have had this problem for years, sometimes it works correctly, but most of the time it does not. I just keep filled, and watch mileage counter.
Nissan has become terrible over the past five years,they're just not customer friendly, and I will never buy another one. I have owned four, loaded, Maxima's, and this Rogue. I was originally a Toyota guy, but had a problem with a salesman and left them; guess what, Toyota didn't care either. I had four Avalon's, they didn't care.
I think it's time to come back and give American cars another chance. Maybe they have learned their lesson. If not, just keeping letting people know of the garbage they're building. If you know a mechanic ask him to search the site they use for repairs, this problem appears all over the world with Rogues.
I would add that I also filed a complaint, and never heard a word. It's the old "....in the wind" theory, you're spinning your wheels.
Thanks for your input.

I was fighting to get the gas gauge fixed on my 2005 Pathfinder for a while. Then out of the blue I see on the news the recall for the 2006. I went and they the dealer told me that my car did not qualify beacuse it was a 2005. I did my reaserch and it was the same part # so I contacted Nissan and opened a case and I got it done.
Believe me, Nissans do not have half of the problems that I have with my Honda Odyssey. And the Odyssey is Best in Class! I have several battles going on with the poor quality of the Hondas. When you mention giving the american cars a chance, I just wanted to remind you that Honda, Nissan and Toyotas are actually american cars built in the USA. The models that you see here are not even offered anywhere else. I am sorry to say that the quality in general for all american built cars is mediocre. Even if the brand is japanese, the vehicles are made here in the USA. Look at your VIN number. If it does not start witha "J", your vehicle was not made in Japan. I did own Hondas when they were built in Japan and never had a single problem. This is just my opinion.

Contacted by Nissan Consumer Affairs on 1/12/2012. Message stated that they contacted the Michigan Dealer and discussed a "diagnosis" of gas gauge problem" and then will determine if Nissan will cover repairs. Will cost $119 to pull to a stop in the dealership service department. Have copied all the messages on this from all of you and will use them as further ammunition once I get there.
Thanks to all of you for the input.

Do not pay them anything. Why would you pay the dealer to tell you what they and you already know. There is even a recall! They tried to do the same to me. I sent a certified letter to the CEO of Nissan in America, Mr. Carlos Gosh and I received a call immediately and the issue was resolved.
