It seems that this transmission over revs, in 6th gear/OD at 60mph I'm turning over 2000 rpm, this seems kind of high for being in OD. It also seems to like to get into the highest gear when I'm driving on a secondary/neighborhood street at 25-30mph it will get into 5th where 4th or 3rd would be a more appropriate gear. That is where the paddles are useful you can manually override the gear, and I use mine often, especially when I'm moving onto an expressway, its seems to work better for me to drop down a gear and not have to push the pedal to the metal.

I bought my Rogue S FWD brand new with 33 miles on it back in August 2008. The car drives nice and smooth except for one weak point. The rpm shoots up to 4000 when going up the road and goes down as it picks up speed. 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 crossover SUV or a Toyota RAV with 5 SPEED AT. Does any body experience this kind of a problem?

2008 Nissan Rogue SL base model. Bought it in November 2007 and I'm fixing to hit 36000 miles. I have had zero problems with my Rogue. No problems going up and down the rolling hills of north east Georgia.
