Back in November Hampton Roads was hit by a nasty Nor'easter, and my 08 Nissan Sentra was totaled. Myself and my 2 yr old ended up driving into a flooded street at 4 am, and had to get pulled out by the police. After this incident I decided that my next vehicle had to be some sort of SUV. First time up I purchased a 2010 SL Rogue FWD, then the following winter we received highly unusual amounts of snow, and I noticed that my car didn't handle as well as I'd liked. Just yesterday, 6 mos later I took my car in for routine maintenance and left with a 2010 SL Nissan Rogue AWD. I love it! It handles superbly, as did the FWD, but now that we are expecting a little boy in June I am more confident!

Larger rear view mirror. The blind spots are pretty bad, but I solved that issue by purchasing a larger rear view mirror from Autozone. Now I can see out of every window in my vehicle without having to turn and look. I am 5'2" so I think the adjustment would benefit all not just taller individuals.
