We have a 2008 Nissan Rogue and our CVT transmission died at 70K miles. When it happened, the car decelerated to a virtual stop approaching a stop light...and then rapidly jolted forward on its own after the light turned red, taking us out through the red light and almost getting us killed. I reported it to the gov't and to Nissan. Nissan didn't return my calls and I only got a stock "your case has been assigned a case number" email response.
And if that wasn't enough...10 miles after the new CVT transmission was installed by the Nissan dealer, the service engine light came on and the whole thing started smoking. It's back at the dealer again...
Needless to say, I've given up on Nissan doing anything to fix this. They know about the issue, they know people could get killed, and they know that this isn't a rare failure for their CVT transmission...and the most they have done is extend the warranty. They won't do anything more because it would be too expensive.
As soon as we get this car back from the dealer, we're driving down the street to the honda, ford, and toyota dealers to trade this mess in for something more reliable and less likely to kill my family.
If you're researching this car...don't buy it. No matter how good it looks, it is a REALLY bad car. You will regret purchasing it....trust me, this thing almost killed me. I wouldn't wish this piece of junk on my worst enemy.

i believe nissan and its dealers are fully aware of a manufacturers defect. i also complained about a abnormal vibration i felt in the steering wheel and floor board while accelerating up to 40 mph and while holding speeds at 25mph and 35mph. at first they said they could not duplicate and after i read the new york times article the dealer said they all vibrate. i asked what were the specs for the vibration and they refused to tell me what inspections were preformed and by whom. dealers have NVH ( noise vibration and Harshment ) tools that can measure the frequency and amplitude of vibrations. TAKE A LOOK AT SOME VIDEOS I POSTED ON YOU TUBE UNDER 'NISSAN ROGUE VIBRATIONS' DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME WITH Nissan CONSUMER AFFAIRS OR THE bbb, HIRE A LAWYER ACCORDING TO DISCUSSIONS ON NICOCLUB.COM THIS IS A KNOWN ISSUE. A COMMON SEANCE QUESTION TO ASK YOU DEALER IS DO ALL MODELS WITH A CVT VIBRATE? DO THEY DIAGNOSE THEM DIFFERENTLY . HAVE THEM PUT YOUR ROGUES UP ON A HOIST IN DRIVE AT IDLE.

Unfortunately, I didn't see this forum until today - 1 day after I purchased the 2011 Nisaan Rougue ;-(
do you know if folks have had these problems even in the 2011 Rogues ?
Mine was actually manufactured in Jan 2011 and was shunted between 3 dealerships before i picked it up - so it has 390 miles on it.
I am wondering if I should've picked up a June built 2011 Rogue instead for $800 more ?

We have had two Nissan vehicles, a 2000 XTerra with 315,000 miles and a 1996 Pickup with 295,000 miles. So, looking for a new vehicle we went back to Nissan. We were planning on buying a Rogue but after reading this I think we will go for the Subaru Forester.
#58 of 237 DEADLY NISSAN ROUGE
Oct 02, 2011 (4:24 pm)
I hae a 2008 Nissan Rogue and it has been nothing more than a disaster. The vehicle was purchased new in 2008, but because of the number of miles I travel (work related) I have 117,000 miles on the car (majority highway). The car in age is considered new, however the corporate office considers the car to be aged because of the milage. I say this to transition into the story of my air conditoner compressor having gone bad. Nissan refuses to repair and they have the worst customer service ever. In addition to the air compressor, I was driving and my car slowed with a rumbling noise and all of a sudden accelerated to a speed of over 70 miles per hour. Talk about frightened! The car did this several times. Finally, the car slowed and stalled in the middle of the highway...no warning....just slow motion moving and then a complete stop. I could have been killed or seriously injured. I would like to join in any suits that anyone has with Nissan. The Nissan Rogue is a lemon and they need to re-call not parts of the vehicle but the entire car needs a recall to assure the consumer that the car is safe to drive.

Were you aware that Nissan has extended their transmission warranty to 10 years or 120k miles on the Rogue and some other models?

The dealership told me about the warranty extension and about how some rogue's were having problems with the car's going into safety mode when we had our issue coming back to GA from NC. Unfortunately, 2 dealerships and Nissan wouldn't do anything because they said they couldn't replicate the problem. It seems to be an overheating issue so a short test drive is not going to replicate the issue.

I will be calling - this has happened to me with TWO separate Nissan Rogues... the first one that was sold to me had no title and they had to return it... a fact I found out AFTER the car broke down on the highway going up the mountains... They had to give me a really good deal on a brand new 2010 car which just started having the same problems about 15 - 20k miles. I'll be taking the car in AND all of these complaints Wed. to the dealership. And I'm call the hotline. I know your post is old, but hopefully this will evenutally work to make people see how crappy this car is and make Nissan take note of their issues.
Thanks for the advice!
