2014 Nissan Rogue: Non-Gated Shifter
October 24, 2014
For whatever reason, maybe because it uses a CVT, our 2014 Nissan Rogue lacks a gated shifter. Because of this, and because I give it little attention, I often find myself in Low when I intend to be in Drive.
Every time I get behind the Rogue's wheel, I grab the shifter, slap it into gear, and drive away only to discover significant engine braking. I'm in Low. It's a minor thing, but this is a case where I'd prefer a gated shifter. A stop that requires another pull of the shifter release to engage Drive would also do the trick. Finding "D" without looking is handy.
