I have owned my 2017 Nissan Rogue SV for just over a year now and have put over 17,000 on the car. For the first 15,000 miles the car was great and never had any issues. Once the car hit 16,000 is when the problems started happening. Lets talk about the good stuff: the car's hide and dived trunk feature is absolutely amazing. Being a mom to a toddler, I can put the stroller on the bottom shelf and still have room for items on the bottom and top self. The rear seats are raised so they sit higher than the front; this is a nice feature if you ever have to sit in the back. But I find it can be a little difficult loading my young child into their car seat because I have to step up higher to access it. (I am sure this is not an issue if you're tall) Due to this being the SV model my car only has the power adjustable driver seat. I have lower back problems so being able to raise this seat and have lumbar support is very nice. The passenger seat is comfortable but during our long road tips in the Rogue, I have found that the driver seat is a better place to be. The car gets excellent gas mileage for being a small SUV. I average about 415 miles per tank and when we go on long road trips, I have seen it up to 480 miles on one tank of gas. (This is without Eco mod on and I can have a lead foot. ) The standard Cross traffic alert and blind spot monitoring are a huge bonus (Especially because this car has terribly large blind spots). Now it is time for the bad: The back up camera on the 2017 (with out the nav) is a joke. The screen is small and the quality of the camera is fair at best. It does get the job done, but I don't rely on it when I am backing up. The road noise on the car is terrible, if I am calling anyone over Bluetooth I have to turn the volume all the up to be able to hear them and most of the time the other person can hear the road. The tan cloth seats are horrible quality; they got stained in 1 week after owning the car and made the car look 10 years old. Nissan's response to that was "put seat covers over them." The car is grossly under powered. Merging onto the highway is a little scary and if you have to pass someone, you better make sure you have time because the CVT doesn't want to get the engine moving. The problems: At 16,000 miles I noticed my Rogue jerking a lot more when I would try to accelerate from stop and go traffic. A slight tap on the pedal would cause the RPMs to jump up to 6 then drop to 0. I took it to the dealership and was told that they couldn't replicate the issue. So in order for me to prove that this was happening, I had to film the issue. Once I got it on film I took the car back at 16,700. (yes it took that long for the issue to happen again). The dealership kept the car for a few hours then called me to say "it's done". According to the Carfax report and the dealers paperwork they "serviced the transmission." Well at 17,000 the car started to do the same thing and at different times. I took it back and was told the same thing "we need it on film". The car currently has 17,800 miles on it and I drive around with a GoPro attached to the cluster gage so I can get the issue on film AGAIN! I took the car to a trusted mechanic to get a second opinion. I was told that the transmission is slipping and probably has a year at best of life left in it. Taking this over to Nissan, they are refusing to look at the car until I can get the issue on film again. Due to it being my only car, I now have to drive around with this potentially dangerous machine until it decides to act up again and have Nissan fix it. This is my 6th Nissan and will be my last.
I purchase this vehicle for my birthday. First new car in 12 years. I have never had a problem with my sciatica until I purchased this 2017 Rogue. I'm trying to deal with it but I'm hurting everyday. I think it maybe time for trade
