2012 Nissan Rogue SV 4dr SUV AWD w/SL Package (2.5L 4cyl CVT)


We bought our fully loaded Nissan Rogue, after reading lots of reviews. We drove the car and it seemed nice.
We have driven this SUV for 12,000 km now and it seems it is a poorly built SUV. The paint is cheap and the flap cover over the spare wheel in the trunk jumps making lots of annoying noise (as if you are carrying empty utensils).
When shown to the dealer, they say this is the way it is built and when it is cold temperature outside, the rubber knobs shrink and there will some noise. The flap cover is actually loose and not tied down by screws.
This is a quality issue which Nissan must address. We paid $38k for this SUV, but are repenting. We should have bought VW Tiguan or Rav4.

Best Features

Back up camera, Bose stereo

Worst Features

There are instruction problems in the navigation. If you are turning right or left, the person instructing (in navigation) will tell you to turn right before some distance. Once you almost turning (before few feet), the instruction voice would tell you ‘please turn on the next right’. If you know the direction, it is ok, but if you are travelling in a new area, it is very confusing
