Most reported problem

Drivetrain

High risk

High

Group of components of a motor vehicle that deliver power to the driving wheels, such as the transmission, fuel system, flywheel, driveshaft, differential and axles. This excludes the engine or motor that generates the power.
Car depreciation

48% after 5 years

While different cars depreciate at different rates, it's a good rule of thumb to assume that a new car will lose approximately 20 percent of its value in the first year. In five years, the average depreciation rate is 50% of their initial value.
Complaint Resolution

Poor

All automobiles will suffer from defects at some point, but its the way the dealer and manufacturer tend to the issues. As reported currently, Nissan isn't taking care of some customer complaints.
Recalls

43 Recalls

A recall is issued when a manufacturer or NHTSA determines that a vehicle, equipment, car seat, or tire creates an unreasonable safety risk or fails to meet minimum safety standards.

I regret buying this vehicle. I've had this car for almost one year and it has had every sensor replaced as well as the dash monitor. I live in a mountain state and this vehicle will not make it up the mountain. It red-lines going up any type of hill

I purchased a new 2017 Rogue Sport. It didnt take long for the issues to start. The SUV turned off WHILE DRIVING 3 different times in a span of 4 months. Dealer never found the cause. Also, the seat started to get loose and it was because a part broke.

I love the safety features, and how well the car drives and handles. Easy to get in and out of parking. Lots of comfort, BUT the Nissan engineers wear asleep at the wheel on hatch access. There is no inside hatch release for driver to open the rear hatch. You

I'd like the Rogue sport a whole lot better if it had the same engine as the full size Rogue. It needs a 2.4 L. It's fine on the highway but if you primarily do street driving it's very frustrating..for example if you are behind someone who suddenly slows down

Overall it is OK. It is a 2018 SV Midnight Edition. Not a big fan of the CTV transmission. I have owned 8 Nissans and 2 Infinitis and this Rogue has the most issues. The stop assist was a bit too sensitive. It would stop the car as it approached

If you're looking for power and Comfort not the car for you. Car is bouncy, loud and lack power. Don't let the Sport fool you. Sluggish start! Not great for long trips. Seats are hard and bouncy. Engine noisy. Fans are loud for heat and air. But if you are

This is our 3rd Rogue, replaced a 2015 SL AWD to get the 2018 with Pro Pilot Assist. I've really noticed the quality of materials has greatly diminished since 2015. Nissan tried to make enhancements with more soft touch material, but there are too many types of plastics that just

What I dont like about the 2017 Rogue. Loud grinding engine sound, fluttering and ticking sound in the dashboard when AC is on, to much vibration, crackling rattling sound in the passenger door every now and then. Platinum Reserve top of the line vehicle costing over 34K. 1st owner. Purchase
