Bought this Rogue for my daughter 2 years ago. It was very well cared for with 95,000 miles. New brakes, tires, and all scheduled maintenance was done. We have had no problems (ex a torn axle boot) in 2 years and 22,000 miles. This is our favorite car (we have 4) as it has a great balance of economy, handling, comfort, and build quality. The interior is quieter and classier than the CRV or RAV 4. Plenty of room to move the kids in and out of college. When I drive the car I average around 27 mpg both city and highway, not bad for an AWD SUV. The handling/ride combination is good. The car is quite nimble compared to by 2003 Lexus RX 300. Ours has all options but for NAV so there is little lacking. We will consider another used Rogue when one of our other cars needs replaced. Living in New England the AWD is a must. I would personally prefer to drive a car over most SUV's but not this Rogue. I honestly like the car that much. As of October 2016 now have 131K miles on the car and all is well. No problems and still drives well. 136K miles and getting a small rumble when first accelerating. Sounds like a loose heat shield or exhaust item. Hope it isn't the CVT failing which has been an issue on early production Rogues. Otherwise still happy with the car.
I read these reviews and don't understand. Some positive some negative. We have had our Rogue for 2 yrs. currently have about 25,000 miles and it has been a very good reliable car. Never had any problems, just scheduled maintenance. We live in Utah, we have snow, mountains etc. and the AWD is awesome! So far... I highly recommend this car. If you asked me one issue i MIGHT have is the blind spots in the car. The way the back end is formed may make it difficult for a amateur driver. I personally don't mind it, just use your mirrors. Hope this helps.
Bought this car for my daughter 6 months ago. It was a one owner with 95,000 miles and a good service history. Have been very pleased with the car. No CVT issues that others have mentioned but it does seem to be an issue on some cars. Better value that the RAV 4 and CRV I looked at. The Rogue interior is considerably more classy and it is quieter inside. All routine maintenance was done before I bought the car (brakes, belts, fluids) so I didn't expect to have any issues and haven't. I drove the car for a few weeks and averaged 27 mpg on back roads with a few stop lights and signs. Pretty good for an AWD SUV and 10 mpg better than my Mazda CX-9.
Overall....BEST CAR EVER! I don't know what is wrong with people who fuss about the shape of the car, nothing is wrong with it! Rides like a dream, purrs like a kitten,and will never let you down unless it is a minor problem like an oil change or tires. BUY ONE!
