I turned in my 07 Altima 2.5 SL Lease for a brand new 10 Rogue SL and am extremely happy. Has the same transmission as my Altima and I love the CVT. I don't think it's loud at all and is more fuel efficient. I'm a mom of two small children and commute 80 miles round trip everyday to/from work. The Rogue fits the bill as far as more comfort for the family and easier access for storage in the hatchback area. Plus, now I have a place to do a quick diaper change. Much easier to lug the double stroller around, but still fuel efficient for my long commute. I don't find the window in the back to be too small to view my blind spot like others have mentioned.
I love the Bose stereo system with XM radio. I may have to renew after the 3 month trial period. Also, the seats are comfy.
Two main things the Rogue lacks compared to my Altima. Mainly there's no HomeLink for the garage door or an access gate. Also, I really miss the auto head light feature.
