#141 of 237 2008 Rogue with no problems
Oct 22, 2012 (7:12 am)
I hope I'm not speaking too soon. But, I was reading these messages and I'm terrified by my readings and hope none of these things happen to me. I have a 2008 Rogue with 84K miles on it and I bought it brand new and have been the only owner/driver. I have not had any of these issues. I drive 80 miles a day (highway & city) for work and I also drive it on long trips 500 miles plus away. I can't imagine these issues are the norm. So, I hope I can give some Nissan Rogue owner's hope!

Human nature I think - people with cars that just work like they should rarely take time to post. But if you have one with problems, you seek out places to get help and to vent.
So thanks for the report!

Consider yourself lucky. Many of the issues don't surface on short trips but show up on long trips when it is hot outside such as in the summer. The transmission is overheating and going into safety mode. It is in the car manual and the mechanics and service personnel will tell you about the problem but Nissan won"t do anything. Nissan never again.

What state do you live in? We live in CA and our car is on transmission number 4. Our first transmission was replaced at 60k but it needed it way earlier. The dealer could not figure out the problem. By the time it was replaced it also needed a differential. The 2nd replacement was at 98k after driving to Las Vegas. The car would not go beyond 45 mph going up the hills and the 3rd replacement happened just recently after driving up a hill on a 100 degree day. Nissan has paid for all the replacements but if you live in a warm climate it seems to be doomed.

Hard to compare notes since my Nissan is an automatic, not a CVT.
And maybe it's better to tell you what states my '99 Quest has lived in. First year was in Anchorage, then a long road trip, then ten years in Boise (105 wasn't uncommon, but it was a dry heat ). The last two years in the UP of Michigan. Not warm.
But back to the thread, it's bad that most people posting in here have had issues. The question is what percent of owners does that represent. If it's more than 3 or 4%, then Nissan will be losing big time on warranty claims. No consolation, but they've lost money on you and may have lost some future sales from people reading your posts.
#146 of 237 Rogue 2008 transmission go to limp mode
Nov 03, 2012 (6:01 am)
There seems to be 2 separate issues here. One there is the TX whining noise and then ther is the issue with the TX going into limp mode for no apparent reasons and no codes are showing. I have the later issue.
After my 4th visit with multiple incidents since last spring, Nissan took some fluid out one time, then they said it was a bad crank shaft position sensor. None of these resolved the problem.
Finally this week, they agreed to replace the TX just under the wire since my 2008 Rogue has 198600km on it! I hope this will resolved the problem for good...
#147 of 237 Suggest me please

I'm in the market for an SUV and one of the SUVs we are looking at is Rogue. But after reading all these issues, I want to run as far as I can.
Before I do, does anyone know the new models are any different in terms of transmission? Have they been redesigned? Does any one know the reliability of 2012/13 models.
Thanks in advance

I'm glad you took the time to ask the question. Nissan has not redesigned the transmission on these as of yet. They are using a different CVT design then they were using in the smaller cars. The problem with these transmissions is that they generate alot more heat and Nissan hasn't really figured out the specific failure (or at least they are not admitting to it)
In my struggles, prior to getting rid of our Rogue, I wasn't disappointed with the vehicle, but when it did have a problem, Nissan's representatives were not willing to address it. Nor were they willing to replace the transmission as they did before.
If you want to purchase one, just make sure you take into account that there is a standing warranty extension on the transmission due to the problems thay have had with them. The failure rate is not high enough for a complete recall. You will probably not get much support from Nissan as the vehicle reaches 100,000 miles.
Good Luck !

Thank you so much for such a detailed answer.
Knowing the issue still exists in the vehicle, very likely we may consider other options.

It is my understanding that the warranty extension on the transmission does NOT apply to 2012 and on models.....
