The size is amazing! It has a lot of storage space...Large trunk space!

My car is really good for Minnesota winters. It drives very well in the snow and have never gotten stuck. It is dependable. . Haven't had many issues with it/zero big problems. I have an older model so it does not have the nicer upgrades. I wish it had heated seats, which is my biggest complaint as the heat does work quick enough but not as fast as other cars. . Mainly I think because it is ten years old.

Nissan Rogue SUV affordable, efficient, and great performance with minimal issue

The Nissan Rogue has been a reliable transportation vehicle the past 10 years. It has great performance with great MPG making it affordable with gas prices. You really get your money worth with the vehicle. It's drives smoothly with comfort and has basic features. There has been several small problems with the vehicle that were able to get fix without an issue.

Take pride in your vehicle.

2008 Nissan Rogue has been a very dependable vehicle. I bought it Dec 2007, have kept the maintenance consistent, keep it in the garage and keep it clean (interior and exterior). Most people comment “this looks brand new” when I reveal the “age” of the car. I am the original owner and plan to keep it at least 2 more years. It has 102k miles at this writing.
