2008 Nissan Rogue SL 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl CVT)


Review

I have owned a '08 Rogue AWD SL w/ premium,leather, & moonroof for about 3 weeks now and I love it. Traded my '03 Ed B. Explorer to get something with better mpg. I have been getting around 27-29 mpg in mixed driving. My Explorer I was getting 19 mpg max. Love the "solid" feel, smooth CVT, smart key, Xenon headlights, Bose stereo, trunk organizer, interior quality is better than my Ford It can be hard to see out the back but it isn't too bad once you get used to it. I tilt the large side mirrors out a little further than I would have in the Explorer and it seems to work well. Reverse sensors would be nice though. Overall, very pleased. Great value for what you get


Favorite Features

decent mpg/smaller gas tank, Xenons, Bose radio, trunk organizer, solid "feel", Blue Tooth, leather seats, wheel radio/bluetooth controls, smooth CVT, "infinite" fan speed dial, options u find in more expensive cars, interior quality


Suggested Improvements

telescopic wheel, larger center console armrest, 2 tier center console instead of bin design, add lining to the center console, reverse sensors, different hatch design = more cubic ft, larger moonroof, more interior trim bet. dash and interior color

2008 Nissan Rogue SL SULEV 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl CVT)


Review

We purchased this car thinking we would never have another new car since we are retired and getting old and wont be driving that many years. The wind noise in this car is so bad we can't talk. We have taken it back to dealer any number of times. First they said Nissan was working on the problems and to come back in a month, we did that, after 3 trips to dealership we are getting that is a characteristic of this car and nothing can be done about it. We are very unhappy with the way we have been treated. I am really not just an old woman trying to grip, we do have a problem and can not get any one to help us. All I can say don't buy a Nissan Rouge, it is a waste of good money.


Favorite Features

Easy parking.

2008 Nissan Rogue SL SULEV 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl CVT)


Review

I got this Rogue on Dec 1st, as a company vehicle. I drive on many rural roads as a sales rep, so needed good clearance & the AWD is great. I was used to V6 engines, so it took a bit to get used to the 4 cylinder. I think the CVT is great. I average about 25-26 MPG, when driving normally. If I really drive it hard (80 MPH) on the interstate, mileage drops to 22-23. I like everything about it except the visibility out the rear window. I guess that's why they put mirrors on vehicles. The wheel design on the SL model seems to hold snow & mud that freezes in the winter causing vibrations like the wheels are out of balance as well. Not a problem now that summer is here.


Favorite Features

Sitting up high, Bose stereo, CVT, heated seats, & lumbar support. Pretty quiet for a small SUV, and good mileage considering the AWD.


Suggested Improvements

Rear window design, wheels hold snow & mud, that freezes in winter causing vehicle vibrations. Need to change wheel design on SL.

Review

I had owned two Altimas before purchasing the Rogue. I enjoyed my Altimas - never had any trouble, but the Rogue is a BLAST! I purchased the SL with moonroof, wind deflector, Bose with the dark interior. The Rogue has a luxury look to it and drives as good as it looks. Very happy with my purchase!!!


Favorite Features

Bose XM stereo! Love the air conditioner vents AND the dashboard display at night is awesome!


Suggested Improvements

SL options - shouldn't have to purchase the leather option to get Bluetooth and electric seats. Would like my gas door to lock.

Review

Traded my wife's 2007 Maxima se on a Rogue. Reason was the ability to use regular fuel. I had hoped to get better fuel mileage but didn't really believe that I would. The Rogue is a nice little vehicle. My wife misses the power and handling of the Maxima but she likes the Rogue. She has 5,000 miles on it already, and has averaged 26.4 mpg. Not bad. She likes the bluetooth and I like the Bose. The CVT takes getting used to. When we bought the 2007 Maxima I thought that I would never get to like the transmission. But after a while it grew on us (we put 48,000 miles on the Maxima) the rogue could use a locking gas door in these times, and a way to open the hatch from the drivers seat. Over all we like it.


Favorite Features

Bluetooth, and the Bose sound system. Also like the handling.


Suggested Improvements

Locking gas cap door, and a way to open the hatch from the drivers seat. As always better fuel mileage would be great. It gets no better mileage than the last 5 Maximas we have owned. But it does use regular fuel.
