I like the leather seats and voice command.

You know you love a vehicle when in the process of buying an Xterra (to replace a recently totaled collision, :() you stumble across a pristine Rogue you absolutely cannot walk away from. My "new" gem is a 2008 Rogue SL, one-owner vehicle with 77K miles on her and loaded to the hilt with all kinds of little luxuries (the ONLY way to buy a used car in my opinion), like Bose Sound System, the crazy CVT transmission that lets you change from Automatic to paddle-on the wheel shifting, Bluetooth, Cruise Control, Sunroof, and let's not forget the 17" upgraded Alloy Wheels! I LOVE THIS CAR! In fact, if I'm not careful, I'm going to find myself holding some speeding papers she's got such a sneaky Get Up and GONE performance. You will not regret purchasing this vehicle. My only complaint is the 21 mpg but I'm willing to look the other way for everything else my "Fiona" offers. (Yeah, I did. I named her Fiona. What of it?) Drive one, and I dare you not to fall in love too.

Multidimensional family car.

I love my Nissan! One of the reasons I bought it was that after test driving several other SUVs, I felt the safest driving the rogue. One problem I have is that I often drive too fast because it is such a smooth ride that I do not realize how fast I am going!! In the 10 years that I have had her I have had to change the brakes twice. My transmission had an issue once but the dealership covered the repairs under warranty. It is spacious, a good height off the ground, and is a great family car! We use it for road trips, to haul supplies for DIY home projects (including 10 foot long pipes/wood), and daily trips to the store, etc. I know one day I may have to get a new car... But I'll be shopping for another Nissan rogue!

Great gas mileage for decent sized car!

I received this car as a gift in October of 2018. So the car clearly had some use when it came to me. For the most part it's a pretty reliable vehicle. It has great gas mileage and gets me where I need to go. I love the fact that it's super easy to plug my aux cord right into the stereo. The check engine light is rather pesky and gas always come on at random times since I got the dang thing. The car is pretty spacious, fits in my 6 foot tall boyfriend no problem. My only complaint really is that when the car does seem to get problems it's always one after the other, though this may not necessarily the the fault of the manufacturer.
