My girlfriend and I recently purchased a 360* edition of the rogue, and couldn't be happier. I find the drive test review to be dead on, the rogue is designed for the average driver, it is not a high performance machine. For the everyday driver, you get a quiet, well-behaved car that handles well, seamlessly accelerates, and looks and feels really good to drive. Vision out the back could be better, but the back- up camera helps alot. Simply put, we Love this vehicle. It is, in our minds, the best value for the money.
The CVT transmission provides seamless acceleration from stops, it's amazing!
Daytime running lights, more options for the interior, a better stereo and bluetooth capabilities would be nice, and an in-dash nav system.
