Editor's Overview

Nissan’s 2016 Rogue compact-crossover SUV delivers exciting styling, a feature-rich interior and something uncommon in this class: an available 3rd-row seat. Nissan prices the Rogue to be competitive against the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4, but it also faces tough challenges from more powerful crossover SUVs such as the Kia Sportage and Ford Escape.

My Rogue with minimal to no problems

When I first purchased this vehicle, one of the lights where the mirror is on the inside of the front of the car was not working. This was resolved easily after pressing the button harder. The car changes gears fast and has a comfortable sensitivity to the gas pedal. The camera that shows on the screen when you put the car in reverse is clear in quality as well as the night time vision. I do not like feeling cramped however in the drive seat as it is a little hard to move my legs as I am kind of a tall person. The turning radius on the car isn't very big like other cars and trucks I have driven though. My car has lasted quite a long time with only a few problems throughout the time I've had it. I only recall two other problems where the car made a squeaky noise when driving and when the battery smelled bad after driving.

The Nissan Rogue is a reliable, comfortable, spacious, lower price vehicle.

I have owned the Rogue since may 2018. It is a base model, but it has all the features I need. It handles very well and is very good on gas mileage. Plenty of leg room and storage. The only problems I have encountered are: (1) the windshield on the drivers side will not stay clear. I have changed the blades and it does not seem to help. I have brought it to the dealer and the tech said something about the "crystal shield?" I am not sure if that is some coating that is put on the windshield, (2) hard to use my blind spot, and (3) I think even base models should include lumbar support. Overall it was pretty comfortable, but on long trips; especially when I got stuck in traffic, my back became very achy and I was extremely sore for the rest of the trip. For the most part I am very happy with my Rogue.

Rogue excellence: surprising and pleasing performance.

I have been a Nissan customer since 2000, I have owned three Altima's, but I found myself needing a vehicle that allowed for transporting some larger equipment. I am very pleased with my Rogue, it gets excellent gas mileage, just slightly less than my previous 2012 Altima. The seats are very comfortable, even on distance trips. I enjoy the features that allow me to see my current tire pressures and the option to be notified when it is time for an oil change. The sound system sounds great. My favorite feature is the adjustable shelving in the back. It can be a flat storage area, or you can create a shelf with the flooring panels, which is sometimes very useful.
