Not bad for a last minute choice
By golfprof76 on
2009 Nissan Rogue S 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl CVT)
So, I like others got stuck with the cash for clunkers deal (traded in a Jeep Grand Cherokee) but I have to say that for a last minute choice, I think I did ok. For starters the engine is loud, really loud. Almost to the point that I'm waiting for an explosion to happen when I hit 4000 rpm. Fuel economy is great (considering I went from 16 mpg to 23) and the ride is quite comfortable. The price, well I still think Nissan could have done better with the S type. $19000 is a bit much for just about the same stuff you could get in a Sentra.
Tons of head room and a fair amount of cargo room for a crossover. If you have an iPod, the AUX function is great!
I do a fair amount of driving in the dark and the dash illumination is weak. It needs to be much brighter. Too many blind spots and the rear window is way too small based on the angle it is set at, I have seen windows on ships bigger than this.
