#158 of 237 Re: 2012 NISSAN ROGUE a loud snap coming from the back part
Jan 13, 2013 (8:26 pm)
coralgables23, I am a new owner of a 2012 Rogue too. I am having the same issue like you, with a loud snap coming from the back part of the car when first taking off from being parked overnight. I was thinking I may not warm up the car good enough. So I tried 3, 5, 8 and even 10 minutes, however the snap sound still exists. Have you had you car checked with this issue? I have told the Nissan repair shop twice for the issue and was told I have to leave the car there for days for them to find out the problems. Kindly please advise.

I brought my car to the shop with similar issues. My mechanic called the dealership and told him there are issues with the CVTs. I found this article online from Nissan:
CVT Program Details
Dear Nissan Owner:
On behalf of everyone at Nissan, we would like to thank you for choosing to drive a Nissan. One of the many technologically-advanced features of your vehicle is the Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT), an innovative transmission that offers smooth, seamless shifting, while tailoring the vehicle's output to your driving style.
While Nissan is proud to offer this technology on many of our models, a small percentage of owners of early models equipped with CVTs have expressed concerns about the cost of repair of their transmissions after the warranty expires. We take these comments about the cost of vehicle ownership seriously. We strive to provide an exceptional ownership experience and are implementing a thorough Customer Satisfaction Program to address this topic.
First, to provide you with additional assurance regarding your overall cost of ownership we have doubled the warranty period for the Continuously Variable Transmission in your Nissan. The existing powertrain warranty coverage of 5 years/60,000 miles will be extended at no cost to you, for CVT repairs, replacements or related towing, to 10 years/120,000 miles, whichever comes first.

Yes that letter had been issued before we had our problem. The dealership also admitted that there had been problems but they could not duplicate the problem so nissan refused to do anything.

Good morning. I am having so many issues on my 2012 Rogue SV. I was wondering if you contacted an attorney? If so, what did they tell you?

After submitting a claim online with the Better Business Bureau, I was contacted by someone from Nissan's Arbritration department. Their number as of two years ago was 1 615-725-1000. The CVT was replaced at no cost to me. No issues since. Good luck!
#166 of 237 possible 2nd CVT messing up
Jun 10, 2013 (10:10 am)
Well, here I go again with car problems. 2010 Nissan Rogue. Purchased new 02/2010. Original transmission starting acting up December 2011. Replaced March 2012. NOW it is starting to act up again. Took it in for an oil change at my local Nissan dealer that I bought it from. I have the Gold Plan that give me free oil changes & tire rotation. I had 63,997 miles on it when I brought it in on Saturday. Once I left the lot after my oil change, I noticed it was accelerating "weird." I blew that off and drove the 20 miles back home. My traction control light came on, even when completely stopped. Then when trying to accelerate from a stop, it would hesitate at 20 mph, rev up the RPMs, then slowly accelerate up to normal speed. Twice the next day it wouldn't go at all. Car didn't stall or turn off, just wouldn't accelerate from a stop. We are leaving on a trip tomorrow, so I took it to the dealership at 7:00 am this morning and demanded they figure out what is wrong with it. After 3 hours, they claim it was the stop lamp switch. Said it was $50. I said check again, I am not paying anything. I have extended warranty. Thank goodnees I did. Fingers crossed that was really the culprit this time...

Well, I had hoped for so long I would be able to avoid the Rogue transmission problems. I have a 2008 that I purchased in October of 2007. I love Nissan and this is my fourth, but man has she been a lemon. There is a running joke in my house about when she will need her next tow (she is averaging one every 9 months or so), however with all the problems it seemed I was going to avoided the CVT curse. Well over the weekend it finally hit. I had been hearing a whining/grinding in the car for months, but based on the other owners who had talking about their problems it seemed Nissan was dismissing the noise as a non-issue. This weekend the noises turned into a slipping transmission that had a hard time accelerating. My spouse and I almost got hit because the car just wouldn't go and someone came up behind me really fast and I couldn't get the car down the road. Plus this slipping is not a lot of fun to deal with. I took the car to my dealer this morning who immediately dismissed my claims; stating that whining, grinding and slipping could be "anything". They have had the car all day and still haven't been able to "duplicate the problems". I know (and my spouse knows) the car is dangerous to drive. I am fairly sure the dealer is going to try and return the car to me today without doing a thing. I have 17K miles left on the extended warranty and won't rest until I have the new transmission I know the car needs. Between the lackluster support from my dealer and the terrible trouble I have had with my Rogue; I have decided this will be my last Nissan. And if I was in a place to purchase a new car, I would get rid of it today.
