We had looked at several SUV's which would give us AWD as well as decent mileage. We had never owned a Nissan before and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the ride, quiet, comfort and mileage projections. We also test drove the Rav-4, Tuscon and Santa-Fe and the Rogue outdid them all in one way or another.
Ride is stable, steady and quiet. Acceleration is more then adequate. The mileage so far is 26.3 which we expect will get even better with the warmer weather. The Sound System is great and Sattelite Radio is a nice extra.
Rear window is small and a bit of a struggle to see out of backing up. Turning radius could be just a bit better.
