I love my Rogue. A sporty car, yet family functional.

2012 Nissan Rogue SL

I bought my Rogue used years ago. It only had 50,000 miles on it. Literally a pampered car. The car was loaded with options such as heated seats, Bose sound system, power windows, power seat, leather, sunroof. Best of all the price was right. I have taken this car on 3 road trips to TX, FL and back to RI. Yes I love to drive and this car is a total pleasure to drive. It has been easy to maintain, gives me great performance, been very reliable (important to a senior citizen) and oh so comfortable. I have added a few things such as a pet cover to the fold-down rear seats for when our Lab takes a ride. I also added a rubber mat to the carpeted way-back so I can carry wet plants and other things. All in all, I LOVE my Rogue

2012 Nissan Rogue is the most reliable car

2012 Nissan Rogue SL

I got my Nissan used in 2015 and to date, I have had no problems with the vehicle's performance. I have had two minor fender benders, and even after these, there have been no issues at all. It has nice, comfortable leather seats and a back-up camera. The camera has a birds-eye view setting so parking between lines is so much easier. I have never had issues starting the car or acceleration. The speakers in the car are Bose and they are amazing! I can really feel the bass shake the car with some songs. The only feature that I wish the car had was Bluetooth audio, but it does not since my car is slightly older.

Rogue is a good choice with reliability and storage space.

2012 Nissan Rogue SL

The Nissan rogue is a really great car. The best part of it, for me, is its capacity. I am a constantly traveling musician and being able to put my instruments in the back has been a lifesaver, and I couldn't do it with other cars. It rarely has problems and only has to be taken in for regular maintenance. It is quite reliable, though it makes a scary sound sometimes when it is cold outside. One of the very few complaints I have about this car is the fact that the rear wiper does not also spray wiper fluid. That has been inconvenient on several occasions.

My 2012 Nissan Rogue, Great Small Family Car!

2012 Nissan Rogue SL

I personally love this car! It gets really good gas mileage, and is perfect for a small family. Its rides very comfortable except I do wish the back seat was a little more comfy and wish at least one side or the other reclined back some which would make traveling long distances more comfortable. The only major complaint I have is our seat belts in the passenger and middle of back seat won't work which is a big problem that needs looked at. But other than that it's a wonderful ride and I would recommend to anyone.

Reliable SUV with a touch of luxury

2012 Nissan Rogue SL

It is a good, reliable SUV. Good mileage, both in town and on the highway. Handles well on the highway. Ample room for luggage as well as other items, like bags of mulch for the yard. My model has most of the bells and whistles available. Built in nav system, satellite radio, sun roof, sport package, rear and front view cameras. While it is utilitarian,it also has a luxury feel. At around 85,000 miles, no major repairs, just routine maintenance. Good value, all the way around.

Nissan Rogue... The very best sport utility out there that you can buy.

2012 Nissan Rogue SL

I love all about my rogue. It has been very dependable. I had a transmission issue early on but they fixed immediately. They gave me a rental car as well. My car was fixed in no time. Excellent service. I love everything about my rogue. I chose black with grey interior. My windows are tinted as well. I can't wait to purchase another Nissan Rogue in my very near future.

Nissan Rogue is the SUV lovers dream

2012 Nissan Rogue SL

The Nissan Rogue is a super reliable car. I have had it since 2012 and it has always gotten me where I need to be. I'm approaching 140,000 miles and it's still going. Highly recommend this car for anyone looking to get into an SUV. I feel very safe when driving and love all the features. Looking forward to getting a new one sometime in the very near future!

Dependable Vehicle at the Right Price

2012 Nissan Rogue SL

I have put nearly 100,000 miles on and have few major mechanical issues, just small annoying ones. The handle broke off of my driver side door twice and now I have an oil leak and need to replace one of the axles. Overall, it has proven to be dependable and gets okay gas mileage. For the price, I think it is a better value than its competitors.

Travel with safety in mind.

2012 Nissan Rogue SL

I love my Nissan rogue. It handles and drives well. I have never had an issue with it for the two years I have owned it, outside of regular maintenance (I.E., oil changes, tire rotations). It is roomy and provides maximum comfort on long road trips. It is a great, safe car perfect for new and experienced drivers.

- Jessica K

Four wheel drive vehicle perfect for families in need of a reliable vehicle.

2012 Nissan Rogue SL

Vehicle is reliable tire pressure sensor goes off easily love the backup camera and handles great in the snow. Keyless entry is nice but have to remember to take keys out of vehicle before locking it. Spacious for at least two car seats in the back just wish the trunk was a little bit bigger for when we travel.

This car is reliable but it is also a gas hog

2012 Nissan Rogue SL

Very reliable, uses too much gas, sits high and comfortable, no cigarette lighter, nice radio and CD player, Bluetooth ability, power windows, power windows, electric seat adjustment, plenty of space, huge trunk, fits 5 people, folding side mirrors, air bags can be turned on and off

I love the color and when the spaciousness of it.

2012 Nissan Rogue SL

There's always some type of undercarriage noise. After doing my own research, I found out that all rogues make that noise. I've learned to deal with it. I do love the spacious part of it though. And it's actually great for camping. Holds a lot of groceries and anything I need.

- Peggy W

This car right here!... Awesome.

2012 Nissan Rogue SL

It is a really nice car drives smooth and my wife has had three wrecks in it and she wasn't hurt in any of the accidents. I think it is a great car for the money and the car still looks great! It is fast for a four cylinder and I love the comfort when driving it.

Multi purpose vehicle that feels lived in. Perfect car for everyday driving.

2012 Nissan Rogue SL

It tends to make a lot of noise and whines a bit, but the service has been fine. There haven't been many big expenses over the years. I love the height of the vehicle and the USB plug is the best. It offers good space and the fold down back seats are an asset.

- Meg K

She's all around absolute beauty! Good in all weather also!

2012 Nissan Rogue SL

I love every feature! The navigation! It came with Bose speakers! The seats are heated and the windows have a dark factory tint. My seats are red pinned striped I couldn't of picked a better car! Her name is Xenia. She is All black! With a moon roof of course!

A car is a transport vehicle that travels on two wheels or more, which moves.

2012 Nissan Rogue SL

A car is a transport vehicle that moves on two wheels or more, which moves by animal traction, pulled by horses, mules, donkeys, oxen, other animals or even people, depending on the customs of the place. It can also be called cart, horse carriage, coach, etc.
