Don't trade in your RAV4 for this!!!

2013 Nissan Rogue SV 4dr SUV w/SL Package (2.5L 4cyl CVT)


This car doesn't compare to a RAV4! My wife and I traded our 2010 Rav4 for this, thinking there wouldn't be much of a change, but I was wrong. I am a tall guy, I fitted just fine in our Rav4, but I noticed it was tighter in the Rouge at the test drive. The wife like the price of the Rouge and how we were able to get all the options for the same price of a new Rav4. I listened to wife and bought this for her and it's been a mistake ever since. It doesn't turn like our old car, blind spots all over, CTV transmission is noisy. You think it's going to break down every time you step on the gas. I ain't one to make up an account to talk about a car, but people need to be warned! Stay away!

Best Features

The only thing I liked is the heated seats. Their navigation system is so bad we are back using our Garmin. The controls on the steering wheel doesn't do much. You have to use the back up camera when backing up b/c you can't see anything out the back window. Can't adjust the back seats like you can on the Rav4. No power lift gate option. Noisy, uncomfortable, never again will I buy a Nissan!!

Worst Features

Everything! Buy a Rav4 and figure out how to make more cabin room, duel climate control, power lift gate, lose the noisy transmission, make the back window larger, better navigation system.
