2012 Nissan Rogue - research before purchasing

This has not been the most reliable vehicle I have ever owned. I purchased the vehicle as a certified pre-owned from a local, reputable dealership. When we purchased the vehicle, it had a clean carfax history, complete maintenance report history and only 52k miles. Just short of having the vehicle for 60 days, the transmission completely went out in the vehicle. The dealership worked with us, and even though it was slightly out of warranty, the agreed to replace the transmission (would have been 5.5k out of pocket). 5 months later, we had to pay out $1,200 to repair the A/C unit and mounting system as it went bad and completely quit working. I was fine with leaving it alone until we got closer to summer and warmer temps, but was told the repair needed to happen immediately because the same component that holds the A/C unit in place also controlled my power steering. While driving the car, it still has a 'shudder' to it that can be felt multiple times while sitting at a stoplight. The dealership explained this is because of the CV transmission (continuous variable). Have not been impressed so far with the Rogue in the Nissan family.

2012 Nissan Rogue amazingly comfortable and durable vehicle

I've had my car for 2 years and the only maintenance I've had to do on it is oil changes, new tires, and annual tune up. All together I've spent about $1000 in maintenance over 2 years, that's better than any other vehicle I've owned. As far as performance it runs great, I get about 400 miles to a tank on the highway and 350 in town. Extremely reliable, even in winter the traction control works great it saved me from several accidents. And the car is durable, coming back from a trip to Arizona I was driving on the interstate and hit a deer doing 80 mph and just had minor bumper damage it didn't take much to fix. The car also has many comfort features, I'm a little short and it has a feature that raises the seat that was so helpful. And if for any reason you have to sleep in your car the seat are really comfortable and both back seats fold down also good for moving. The air conditioning and the heat both work great. I still have a stock radio but I don't see a need to change it does everything I need and sounds great. All in all this is the best vehicle I've owned and I plan on keeping it for a long time.

Drive carefully with your Rogue.

I drive our Nissan Rogue everywhere and it is a very durable and dependable vehicle. I keep the maintenance up to date as much as possible with regular oil changes and have the dealer check out anything else. But the issue of a blind spot on the right hand side of the car still is unnerving at times. There have been numerous times where I have tried to merge to the right and hadn't seen the car next to me, even when I looked in the mirror. Check on the internet other people have experienced the same issue. It seems that the space between the front passenger window to the window directly behind it is a big longer than most vehicles. Because of this issue I really take a long time to merge to ensure that no vehicle is in my blind spot and if they are to stay in my lane until it is clear.
