About Nissan Rogue
As the pioneer of Nissan marching into the hot compact crossover segment, Nissan Rogue has been built by the outstanding Japanese multinational automobile manufactured Nissan Motor Company Ltd since 2007 as a compact crossover Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV). Originally introduced to succeed the Nissan Mistral and Nissan X-Trail in Canada, Rogue is currently Nissan's best-selling vehicle in the United States and as of 2017 is the best-selling vehicle in that market overall. Although only as Nissan's entry-level SUV, Rogue has won many awards and recognition such as Consumers Digest's Automotive Best Buy Award, U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)'s highest Side-Impact Safety Ratings and so on. Now, it is in its second generation.
The first-generation Nissan Rogue was produced from 2007 to 2015 based on Nissan C platform and made its debut at the 2007 North American International Auto Show. It was offered in only one body style, 5-door SUV but came in three trim levels in the United States: S, SV and SL as well as S Krom Edition (Special Edition replaced it in 2012) and Rogue Select. During this generation, Nissan Rogue was powered by a 2.5 L I4 rated at 170 hp and this engine sent power through a CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) to front wheels or all wheels. The more recent Rogue is a version of Nissan X-Trail and inspired by the Hi-Cross Concept to adapt to the North American market. It debuted at 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show and went on sale in November 2013 as a 2014 model in U.S. S, SV, SL and Rogue Hybrid are available. And now, Rogue gets power from a 2.5 L I4 producing 170 hp and 175 lb-ft of torque and the CVT still works.
Nissan Rogue Common Problems & Maintenance Tips
Offering the all-weather capability and commanding driving position along with the maneuverability and fuel efficiency, Nissan Rogue is truly a perfect combination of an SUV and a typical car. But though boasting impressive fuel efficiency and a spacious interior, you need to make a good preparation for these common problems on Rogue:
First, according to the car repair statistics site CarComplaints.com, transmission failure is said the worst reported problem on Nissan Rogue. Many Rogue drivers without much knowledge about working principle of an automobile may underestimate the influence it could bring and realize the seriousness until it is too late. In fact, this issue not only brings grinding noises from underneath the vehicle, the indicator not matching the gear but also difficulty in shifting gears, the vehicle starting in another gear or refusing to go into gear, transmission slippage and surging and even drivability problem. Therefore, please make sure the Rogue CV boot, valve body, automatic transmission shifter, transfer case seal, transmission assembly, clutch fork and shift cable are working properly before hitting the road.
Second, issues on the engine, braking, and suspension are also troublesome problems for Nissan Rogue drivers. Since every driver knows that engine is serious enough to destroy the vehicle, braking failure is powerful enough to let you get stuck in dangers and suspension failure is horrible enough to give you an uncomfortable and unsteady ride as well as poor handling. The engine failure often could be attributed to the Rogue air filter, oil filter, spark plug, oil cooler, drive belt, serpentine belt and fuel pump. And Rogue brake pad set, brake disc and brake backing plate are the culprits of braking failure. And you should keep the Rogue front cross-member, drive shaft, control arm, sway bar bushing, sway bar link, sway bar link, shock absorber, strut bearing, coil springs, wheel bearing, and leaf spring in good order all the time to avoid the suspension failure.
What's more, electrical parts such as Rogue door lock actuator, window regulator, steering angle sensor, oxygen sensor, ignition coil, alternator, wiper motor, mass air flow sensor, blower motor, wiper switch, power window switch and vulnerable parts including Rogue cabin air filter, emblem, seat belt, headlight, wiper blade, wiper arm, fog light and antenna mast should be maintained routinely for your Nissan Rogue's overall quality.
