2010 Nissan Rogue S 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl CVT)
Bought a 2010 S AWD with 360 package at the end of February...just hit 2500 miles. The negatives: the engine revs a bit when you first start the car, and seems to be working awfully hard at lower speeds when you're accelerating (up over 3000rpm). It settles down once you reach freeway speeds and cruises quite comfortably at 75. Acceleration is lacking. I always feel like I'm pushing it to get it to respond, especially city driving. I'm 6'1" and the driver's seat rides a little high...not adjustable. The material on the seats doesn't look like it's going to wear very well...already ballooning in places. Positives: Its great in the snow, looks nice and didn't cost nearly as much as a Murano!
Wish I would have had the 360 package as an option with the SL model...forced me to choose between a backup camera and the bigger tires...and with kids in the neighborhood, the camera won out.
