Was looking and test riding CRVs and RAV 4's. Stumbled upon the Rougue and found it to be every bit as good as a CRV which I previously owned and better than the Toyota. Toyota and Honda would not deal but Nissan came down $6K off the list last August and that clinched the deal. About 12Km now and no complaints other than gas mileage not quite as good as I expected it to be. Its versatile and fund to drive both in the city and on the highway. Always admired the looks of the Merano, this shares many of those good looks and makes RAV 4 and CRV look dated.
Moon roof, AWD, stero system, fun to drive.
Needs a Hatch latch. Sl Model includes a roof rack but you need cross rails to attach anything and they make you pay extra for those.
