Solid and reliable vehicle
2009 Nissan Rogue S
I love my 2009 Rogue, S, AWD. I bought it one year used with about 20k miles on it. I have put 130k miles since. I love the smooth CVT transmission. I have only had two issues with the vehicle in 10 years. 1) door lock mechanism failure in cold weather. It was recalled and I had them replaced, but it just happened again last winter. 2) I recently ran into a transmission issue. Not sure exactly what the problem is. It stopped working on the freeway after about 3 hours of freeway driving going up hill. It was like it just gave up, the car ran just fine, but the transmission stopped engaging. We were able to get it off the freeway and into a safe parking lot. Once the car was cool again, the transmission worked just fine again.
It is the perfect size for a family of four and a large dog. It has been a very reliable vehicle and a smooth ride (the road noise is pretty loud).
