Rogue . . . So-So

Vehicle2008 Nissan Rogue S 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl CVT)
ReviewI've been driving my Rogue for 3 wks. now. It has a comfortable ride, but the int. ergonomics are terrible. I believe it must have been designed for someone with the arm length of a veloco-raptor. The window switches are set back about 4 inches too far. The center armrest is also back too far. The cup holders are too close together and are also set back a bit far. The side mirrors are nice and large. This is good because the rear window is the same size as the rear view mirror. Performance wise, it is not bad. Smooth ride, with OK pickup for a 4 cyl. engine. It does have an unusual resonance when at 40 MPH. Must be the CVT trying to find a sweet spot. MPG is between 21-23.5
Best FeaturesComfortable ride. Nice exterior design. Reasonable acceleration for the engine.
Worst FeaturesRedesign interior ergonomics especially cupholder and window switch placement. Increase the size of the rear window. Small enough as it is then there is a 4" strip of dark tint around the edge. Work on the gas mileage this vehicle should get close to 30 actual MPG.
