2014 Nissan Rogue: Portland Road Trip Part 4

January 23, 2015

2014 Nissan Rogue

After driving 1,500 miles in our long-term 2014 Nissan Rogue I turned around and headed home. The trip had taken me from Los Angeles to Nevada City, then to Portland and Seattle and back to Portland again. With about 1,000 miles left in front of me, I split up the remaining distance into two legs: Portland to Sacramento and Sacramento to Los Angeles.

The 600 miles from Portland to Sacramento had several elevation changes and I stopped multiple times for food, so I wasn't setting any records. From Sacramento to Los Angeles, though, was a different story. I was on a self-imposed mission to hit the EPA's highway fuel economy estimate of 32 mpg in the Rogue and I pulled out all the stops, literally.

2014 Nissan Rogue: Portland Road Trip Part 1

January 20, 2015

2014 Nissan Rogue

I've been critical of our long-term 2014 Nissan Rogue in the past, but I needed something with all-wheel drive for a lengthy road trip, and the Rogue is was little short on miles, so over the holiday break, I gave it another shot. The trip went from Los Angeles to Portland with a day trip to Seattle and several stops along the way, so the Rogue had plenty of chances to change my mind.

2014 Nissan Rogue: Fuel Economy Update for December

January 9, 2015

2014 Toyota Highlander

Our long-term 2014 Nissan Rogue set a few new fuel economy records this month. It got a new longest range, which is great, but it also got a new worst mileage from a tank of gas. We were still unable to crack that elusive highway EPA estimate of 32 mpg, too.

2014 Nissan Rogue: Another Family Road Trip

December 15, 2014

2014 Nissan Rogue

A few weeks ago, I used our 2014 Nissan Rogue to shuttle my family about 800 miles round trip for the Thanksgiving holiday. It was very similar to the road trip I did in the Rogue back in April.

I've got a few more thoughts to add based on my most recent trip.

2014 Nissan Rogue: Fuel Economy Update For November

December 3, 2014

2014 Nissan Rogue

November was an average month for our 2014 Nissan Rogue as we added about 1,500 miles to the odometer and didn't do much to change our overall fuel economy. Those miles were spent commuting around Southern California as well as some long-distance driving.

2014 Nissan Rogue: Fuel Economy Update for October

November 6, 2014

2014 Nissan Rogue

We added just over 1,500 miles to our 2014 Nissan Rogue in October, during which time we improved on a few of our previous "bests."

2014 Nissan Rogue: Fuel Economy Update for September

October 7, 2014

2014 Nissan Rogue

We added more than 1,100 miles of mixed driving to our 2014 Nissan Rogue in September. The car was passed between various staff members with no on person dominating September's miles.

2014 Nissan Rogue: Fuel Economy Update for August

September 10, 2014

2014 Nissan Rogue

While our 2014 Nissan Rogue didn't venture on any long road trips this month, our crossover still racked up a respectable 1,830 miles during the month of August.

Thank the Rogue's spacious storage area and trick 360-degree camera for its popularity among our staffers.

2014 Nissan Rogue: Fuel Mileage Update for July

August 7, 2014

2014 Nissan Rogue

We put 2,645 miles on our 2014 Nissan Rogue during the month of July. We averaged 24.2 mpg during that time, using 109.3 gallons of 87-octane fuel. Our best fill-up for the month was 27.7 mpg, our worst tank was 19.5.

2014 Nissan Rogue: Hauls More Than You'd Think

July 22, 2014

2014 Nissan Rogue

Just back from our annual wine country road trip in the 2014 Nissan Rogue. Several of my colleagues have commented on the compact crossover's roomy cargo hold, so we decided to really put it to the test.

On the way up from Southern California to the Napa and Sonoma regions there were four adults and luggage for a long weekend, not a terribly challenging load.

On the way back we lost our two passengers, who flew home. But we kept some of their luggage and augmented that with eight cases of wine (not all for my cellar; we buy for a small group of enthusiasts).

2014 Nissan Rogue: Las Vegas Road Trip Observations

July 11, 2014

2014 Nissan Rogue

A hot summer weekend in Las Vegas: the perfect time and place for...a librarian's convention? Perhaps not. They must have got a screaming deal on hall space in the heat of summer. Nevertheless, my non-librarian wife had business there, so the four of us loaded into the 2014 Nissan Rogue and headed out across the desert on a recent Friday evening.

The odds of escaping town without hitting traffic were not in our favor, so we left at 8:00 p.m. It wasn't late enough. The Rogue's navigation system showed the dreaded dark red line extending some 80 miles east on Interstate 15 from just past Barstow.

So we took Interstate 40 and some deserted two-lane Mojave Desert back roads instead.

2014 Nissan Rogue: Fuel Economy Update for June

July 04, 2014

2014 Nissan Rogue

We drove our long-term 2014 Nissan Rogue 1,517 miles during the month of June, but we still haven't matched the EPA's estimates for fuel economy. The lifetime MPG for the Rogue dropped slightly again this month (from 23.9 to 23.8 mpg overall) but on the bright side, we set a new best for most miles travelled on one tank of fuel.

And just how far did the Rogue go on one tank of gas? Glad you asked.

2014 Nissan Rogue: Do You Know What Pure Drive Is?

June 9, 2014

2014 Nissan Rogue

There's a "Pure Drive" badge on our 2014 Nissan Rogue.

Does that mean it's a hybrid? No.

A hydrogen-powered Rogue? Nope, not that either.

Those would be reasonable guesses, but they give that little badge too much credit. Turns out "Pure Drive" is simply a name for what Nissan says is "our action to improve fuel economy of engine-powered vehicles."

2014 Nissan Rogue: Fuel Economy Update for May

June 4, 2014

2014 Nissan Rogue

Our 2014 Nissan Rogue did normal mixed driving duty this month. There were no big road trips, just commuting, school runs, weekend errands, etc.

We added a little more than 700 miles this month, averaging 22.8 miles per gallon. This brought our lifetime average down .2 to 23.7 mpg.

2014 Nissan Rogue: Fuel Economy Update for April

May 8, 2014

2014 Nissan Rogue

After two months of driving the 2014 Nissan Rogue, the crossover finally hit its 28 mpg combined EPA rating. Brent Romans' recent road trip showed that the Rogue will reach the combined number, but the highway estimation is a lofty 32 MPG. On this trip, the Rogue was loaded with luggage and a family. Perhaps a solo journey is necessary to reach that top-end number.

2014 Nissan Rogue: Nice, But CVT Is a Deal Breaker

April 14, 2014

2014 Nissan Rogue

I spent a few days in our new 2014 Nissan Rogue. It's a nice, roomy crossover that's comfortable with plenty of space for a small family and their things (and relocating their things). It's got a power liftgate. Once used, you'll never want to lift a slab of glass and steel by yourself again.

2014 Nissan Rogue: Hard To Find Sport Mode

April 9, 2014

2014 Nissan Rogue

This is the "sport" mode button in our 2014 Nissan Rogue. It's buried on the left side of the steering wheel along with a half dozen other auxiliary controls. Seems like an odd placement for a control like this. It's almost as if Nissan doesn't want you to know it's there.

2014 Nissan Rogue: Fuel Economy Update for March

April 4, 2014

2014 Nissan Rogue

We're still getting to know our new 2-14 Nissan Rogue and March was our first full month of recording the crossover's fuel economy. After 10 fills, averaging about 9 gallons per fill, we're well shy of the EPA combined rating of 28 mpg.
