What Our Members Are Saying about the Reliability and Durability of the Nissan Rogue

Nissan Rogue Reliability and Durability: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2012 4dr SUV 170-horsepower 2.5L I4
CVT FWD
Rock solid after 21,000 miles in 11 months. The worst quality issue so far has been a quiet, intermittent rattle. Cheap to maintain, too. If it holds up as well as my '08 Versa, I will be very happy.
2011 4dr SUV 170-horsepower 2.5L I4
CVT AWD
I would rank Nissan just below Honda for reliability history. They are also known for being quite durable. I think they are on par with Toyota after the recent quality issues Toyota has experienced.
2010 4dr SUV 170-horsepower 2.5L I4
6-speed shiftable CVT AWD
glitch free from day of purchase and remaining so. (Apr2012) I find that the CVT seems to give a pulse or vibe as acceleration onto the freeway. (July 2012 additional info) - now i've isolated tranny vibe - will take to dealer and get repaired.
2010 4dr SUV 170-horsepower 2.5L I4
CVT FWD
Had it for over 2 1/2 years and 17000 miles and not one problem. Oil change, that's it. Very reliable so far.
2008 4dr SUV 170-horsepower 2.5L I4
6-speed shiftable CVT AWD
Nissan has a good name for reliability.

Obviously because of my past 4 experiences going up hills over 125km car pretty much shuts down and has no power have to pull over and start vehicle.... and after problems over drive no longer works

2008 4dr Sedan 230-horsepower 3.0L I6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Tremendous warranty which includes annual oil change and inspection paid for by dealer. ANY problems are fixed at no charge to customer.
2008 4dr Sedan turbocharged 300hp 3.0L I6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Full service for first 4 years.
2007 4dr Sedan 215-horsepower 3.0L I6

Very good reputation.
2007 4dr Sedan 360-horsepower 4.8L V8
6-speed shiftable automatic RWD
No problems in 15,000 miles
2005 4dr Sedan 225-horsepower 3.0L I6
6-speed shiftable automatic RWD
Tried and true inline 6 cylinder engine.
2002 4dr Sedan 184-horsepower 2.5L I6
5-speed shiftable automatic RWD
Very little rust after 8+ years coupled with top notch materials lasting quite a long time. Replacement parts were very costly but performed for long periods. Current owners offer great advice on what and when to perform preventative maintenance.

2011 4dr Sedan turbocharged 300hp 3.0L I6
8-speed shiftable automatic RWD
- accelerator response (hesitation) - engine issues (check engine light requiring three service visits in two months) - engine malfunction light (part of turbo came disconnected) - faulty fuel sensor (recall first three months of new model year)
2010 4dr Sedan turbocharged 300hp 3.0L I6
6-speed shiftable automatic RWD
Terrible reputation for poor reliability and absurdly high repair costs as early as 50,000 miles.
2010 4dr Sedan turbocharged 300hp 3.0L I6
6-speed shiftable automatic RWD
Unbelievable maintenance after 50K miles, cost and effort.
2005 4dr Sedan 325-horsepower 4.4L V8
6-speed shiftable automatic RWD
Over 80K many systems were beginning to break down
2004 4dr Sedan 225-horsepower 3.0L I6
6-speed manual RWD
Had several repairs the first month of ownership that were covered by CPO warranty...love that BMW CPO
2002 4dr Sedan 225-horsepower 3.0L I6
5-speed shiftable automatic RWD
This car is known to have a plethora of problems. I have yet to see if it will hold up well for me.
2002 4dr Sedan 290-horsepower 4.4L V8
5-speed shiftable automatic RWD
I picked the above "reason" because it's the worst feature of an otherwise perfect vehicle. The durability of the interior is quite frankly an embarassment. I've lost the buttons for max for the heater, up for the driver side temerature, and the top button for the airflow direction .... don't ask me where they went, they just disappeared! I've broken the drivers side cup holder (and come on ... how pathetic are those cup holders!), and once it breaks, it no longer clicks back into the closed position so now I have a half a cup holder sticking out. One other grievance relating to interior durability ... the plastic footrest (left foot) down below the hood lever also fell apart. The plastic just broke away in
2001 4dr Sedan 225-horsepower 3.0L I6

dealer ship as a mess
