Vehicle S 4dr SUV (2.5L 4cyl CVT)
Review I have owned my Rogue approx 12 months and have 13,500 miles on it. This includes two extended highway trips. Vehicle is doing great. No troubles at all. I do routine 3,500 mile oil changes (recommended in our hot Florida weather) and rotate tires and nothing else has been needed. Drives great, smooth as can be, getting 26 mpg in town and 34 hwy. Very comfortable on 15 hour all highway drives moving kids to college. Extremely comfortable front seats which is key for me since I have a bad back from an accident. The Rogue is not the sexiest vehicle in the world, but in my view is an extremely comfortable, solid and dependable vehicle that does everything I, as an average driver, need in a vehicle. I am not going to win any drag races in it, and I am sure that the folks at Car and Driver or Motor Trend don't like it, but for going to work and back, hauling the occasional bags of mulch from Home Depot, or driving the kids to college with all their junk it works tremendously fine. Would purchase again without question. I am a guys who reads all of the professional car/suv reviews, and my experience with my Rogue is much more positive than what the reviewers say about the vehicle. I am high 50's male with a bad back from an accident and went looking for a "right height" vehicle since I have trouble crouching down to get into many sedans or hopping up into most SUVs. After sitting in a significant number of vehicles I found the Rogue fit the bill perfectly. Height is just right for me to slide into, and the seats are extremely comfortable (I didn't believe the Nissan propaganda about zero gravity design seats until I sat in them). And in spite of the professional reviewers who say that the Rogue drives poorly, I love it. Recognize that I use my Rogue for what I think a typical driver would use it for. I drive a few miles each day back and forth to work, go around town on errands, and will hop onto the interstate occasionally to go visit someone. I am not looking for a street racing machine and I don't care if it doesn't corner at high g-rates. Just typical average everyday driving. And in this the Rogue does wonderfully. Plenty of pickup, and no - I don't get a horrendous "drone" from the engine/transmission since I am not trying to drag race down the street or into interstate on ramps. Accelerates just fine. Smooth and comfortable ride - maybe not to the standards of a 1980's Buick - but what SUV does? Much smoother and more comfortable than the BMW and Mercedes SUVs that my friends drive for name recognition. Lots of room inside. Carries plenty in rear. A/C works great which is key here in Florida. Handles my daily grind just fine. Are there things that I don't like - sure. Nissan's bluetooth connectivity is somewhat behind others - my iphone connects perfectly to the other 3 cars in my family (Toyota, BMW and Hyundai) but even the dealer can't figure out why the Rogue won't pull in my full address book for all voice recognition calls. Gas mileage a bit lower than advertised. But bottom line is that the Rogue handles my daily driving needs admirably well - and at a great cost (dealer hugely discounted off list price). Highly recommend the vehicle for anyone looking for comfortable, normal transportation. I will continue to read the professional car reviews, but now I recognize that their specific vehicle criticisms may not apply to a typical driver like myself.
