I agree. I purchased a 2012 Nissan Rogue Special Edition. I currently have about 60,000 as I commute daily to my work in the Bay Area. The last couple of months I noticed that I was having acceleration problems. When I was on I5 on my way to Sacramento I noticed the acceleration was really dragging and I pulled over at the next exit. When I took my vehicle to a local dealership I received the same diagnosis that possibly my transmission is going out and it is currently on order. I felt that my vehicle is too new and even at close to 60,000 that there shouldn't be problems with the transmission. There needs to be a recall of the vehicle because of CVT problems. Keep me in the loop as I am ready to provide my input.

anybody got any action on this yet?? i called Nissan consumer affairs -- and I'm going to the "independent" Nissan dealership on THursday to have their service manager see if the vibration is normal. its not, i brought it in for a tune up and got it back in worse condition than when i dropped it off, i wish i had never taken it in??
Are they going to scam me?? are they going to say, these vibrations are normal?
if anybody knows, is there a range of acceptable vibrating?? like units?? 2in/cm or some measurement??? i want to ask them what the vibrating came back as and where does it say that is acceptable....
this all makes me sick, like one big cover up, i want to trade this is and get my wife and baby daughter a reliable crossover... how much could i get for a silver 2008 SLAWD all the bells and whistles???

Hi all! Reading this makes me a little worried. i have a 08 Rogue we purchased new in 08, has 240,000 miles on it, and has been, regretably "dogged" in its use. We haven't had an ounce of issue out of it besides the rapid deceleration engine "flutter" when we make a suddent stop. We're getting 100,000 miles on the tires, have good wear on the brakes, had to replace a belt which was horrid to get it but we managed it. However, my little skateboard has decided to misbehave lately. We thought it might be in the wheel bearings but they weren't loose since the road noise picked up on the driver's side. However it started vibrating on some turns, and indescrimately on starts. Now we think it may be the CVT having issues. We were just looking at purchasing the '14 since we've had such good luck with this one but now I'm worried that I'm only beginning to have issues with my little skateboard and might be asking for nightmares with a new model.
We called Nissan about obtaining a factory reman CVT for it, but the person answering was less than helpful, and dealers are closed mouth about them. They refuse to tell you about parts and just want to "look at it". I don't really want some minimum wage paid dealer tech crawling through my car looking for things to fix, I just want a "real" answer. I get the impression dealer service centers are "slimy b***tards"
So if you are able to force a recall I am all for it.

Wow, I didn't think anybody had more miles on an '08 Rogue than we did. We were wrong We only have 175,500 and last night it stopped moving on the way home. It's not the engine, it runs fine, but it's like the clutch is gone on an old manual transmission. It won't go into any gear, no 'clunk' when you go from park to reverse or drive. After reading all these posts about the "vibration" problems people have had, we never had that until just before it went out of gear and stopped rolling. :p We have dearly loved this Rogue and taken meticulous mechanical care of it. We had planned to trade it in on a newer used Rogue. Good luck to us all! *sigh*

I live in Alaska and I have an '08 Rogue with 108K miles. It stopped moving on my wife on Monday. The dealership called today and said that it was the transmission and that it was covered under a recall. He stated that it had to have less than 120k miles to be covered. I had never received anything about a recall, but glad it went out on me when it did. I don't think they are advertising it because of the cost to replace them all, and they are hoping you will reach the 120k miles before it breaks. We just got lucky. This has been the worst car, I have ever owned. I have had to have the steering column replaced twice, the hubs and bearings in the front went out at 90K miles. Good luck to everyone, I hope you get some satisfaction.

Could you get your dealer to give you some info that is guiding them on recall?
#228 of 237 TORQUE CONVERTER LOCKUP VIBRATION - NISSAN ROGUE 2008

TORQUE CONVERTER LOCKUP VIBRATION by erikb717
Nov 14, 2013 (5:28 am)
----- WELL, I TOOK MINE IN -------
and the answer they gave me was your CVT is experiencing TORQUE CONVERTER LOCKUP
since the CVT has no gears,
it will sometimes VIBRATE in between what is supposed to be 1st and 2nd gear (1-1.5 RPMs)
nothing we can do !!! they said.
WTF, before i had the CVT replaced it wasn't vibrating at all!! now with the replacement CVT, you cant even drive it 0-40, it shakes like an '82 DATSUN !!!
they said some CVT replacements are well built and wont vibrate, but some will and if the car runs fine, we can't get you another CVT under warranty !!!
seriously???? everyone who has driven my car said this is totally unacceptable....
NISSAN SUCKS SO BAD. basically its a manufacturers defect, in order to make the car more fuel efficient, they went with the CVT transmission instead of a standard one with gears. they didn't anticipate this vibration in 1/2 of the Rogues to be so bad.
so the really bad CVTs are in the 2008, 2009 and 2010 Rogues
newer "3-Step" CVTs are in the 2011, 2012 and 2013 and are a little more quiet.
even the service manager at the different dealership i went to told me she traded in her 2012 Rogue already because she couldn't stand the vibrations!!!
COME ON NISSAN DO SOMETHING!!
is there anything i can do to help lessen "Torque Converter Lockup"??? or should i force them into giving me a 2nd CVT??? that doesn't vibrate??? they said they can't cause the CVT is performing what its supposed to and not to worry about the vibrations, that i would get used to it !!

I am an insurance agent and drive A LOT!! I have had 5 Subaru's and have NEVER had any major repair costs. In Oct. 2012 my transmission blew and I found out that there was a recall (Nissan never notified me that there was a recall). If I would have known there was a recall, I would have taken my car in for service. By the time the transmission (CVT) BLEW UP I was 5,000 miles over the warranty extension and had to pay $3,800.00 for a new transmission. Nissan would not stand by their product (even though they know it is a hunk of junk)!!!! Two days ago my rear end blew up and now Nissan wants another $2,600.00 to replace it. WOW!! $6,600.00 in one year into a 2008 Nissan. I hired an attorney today. I have never felt so taken advantage of and will tell EVERYBODY I KNOW what a hunk of junk Nissans are and to NEVER buy one. VERY DISGRUNTLED ONE TIME NISSAN OWNER.
#230 of 237 SHAME ON NISSAN
Nov 26, 2013 (7:06 pm)
I have never owned anything but a Nissan (I have had 2 Altima's, a Murano, a Pathfinder and now a Rouge). I can honestly say that after the issue I have had with my 2009 Rogue and it's faulty transmission I WILL NEVER PURCHASE A NISSAN AGAIN and encourage others to do the same. My pedal just stopped accelerating the other day when I was 100 feet from getting on the highway in Boston. Thankfully I was (barely) able to get my car off to the side before I entered the highway or I may not be alive to type this. After over an hour stranded on the side of the road AAA came and towed my car to a nearby mechanics. After $130 diagnostic fee the mechanic concluded my transmission needed replacing. I AM lucky in the fact that this mechanic took pity on a broke graduate student and researched this a bit. He informed me that my new transmission would be covered under the extended warranty Nissan had extend due to the fact that THEY MANUFACTURED FAULTY TRANSMISSIONS. Nice to know. I then had to arrange my car to be towed to a Nissan dealership to be fixed. The locations around me had 2-3 week waits on average. I finally found a Nissan location relatively close that said they could do it (it just arrived there today, I'm sure they'll try to come up with a reason as to why it shouldn't be covered). This has taken HOURS of my time & energy in the last 5 days not to mention the HUNDREDS of dollars spent on towing (AAA only covered within a 3 mile radius), rental car fees, diagnostic work at the FIRST mechanic and additional parking permits I have to obtain and purchase so that my rental isn't ticketed in my permit-parking only neighborhood. I'm unsure as to WHY Nissan never felt compelled to recall these faulty transmissions. I was feet away from a disaster and now hundreds of dollars in the hole because of THEIR mistakes. NEVER AGAIN.
