When braking one can feel the drivers seat lift forward as if it isn┐T bolted on correctly. If one were to get in a collision it feels like if the seat would just fly off. It's felt this way since I got the vehicle.

My seat belt will not come out to securely buckle in my passengers. I went to the dealer and they said it was the seat framework which is pinching the seatbelt.

The owner's manual for the 2016 Nissan Rogue notes the ability to install car seats in both the outboard and center seating positions of the second row of the vehicle. While there are no latch hooks for the center position, there is a ceiling-mounted hook and directions in the owner's manual for use of lap belts to secure a seat in the center position (section 1-43). Nissan, however, has a separate release for all of their vehicles called "snug kids' and denotes which car restraints, called crss, function properly in their vehicles. For the 2014-2017 Nissan Rogue, the snug kids documentation from Nissan specifically notes: "important note for 2nd row installation: We do not recommend installing any crs in the center seating position." This contradicts car seat installation directions found in the owner's manual. I leased this vehicle with the need to put three cars seats, or crss, into my car and leased a 2016 Nissan Rogue based upon the information provided in the owner's manual. The "snug kids' documents released by Nissan contradict the manual and I therefore leased this vehicle under false/inaccurate/misleading information provided by the manufacturer. Clearly, Nissan has uncovered a safety issue with placing a crs in their vehicle but no recall exists. Further, Nissan seems unwilling to help owners who report this issue. I reported this issue, incident #29652572, and Nissan has declined to provide a solution. I would liken this issue to the recent emission issues surround Volkswagen where the vehicles were sold under inaccurate specifications provided from the manufacturer. I am attaching copies of both the owner's manual and the "snug kids" release. I hope that this report triggers an investigation which leads to action by Nissan/a recall of the Nissan Rogue.

Front passenger air bag disabled light intermittently turns on, indicating air bag is disabled, while that seat is occupied. This occurs while in motion, and at any arbitrary time or speed. There is a similar recall on this, but evidently this vehicle is not included, as it is listed as no recalls.

Brand new 2016 Rogue purchased 12/29/2016 after having for 24 hours it became obvious there was a vibration in the steering wheel as well as the driver and passenger seats. This occurs immediately after putting the car in reverse or park as well as when driving. It is not a strong shaking but a constant vibration and after driving for a period of time begins to irritate my hands. The dealer and service manager said it is normal and they could not do anything about it.

I have a 3 seater, during a rear end collision, the middle seat swung back and locked with the 3rd seat. When the seat locks there is no space between the seats; if some is sitting in the back the legs will be crush during a collision. My 5 year old granddaughter was seating in her car seat and by a blessing of god, she was able to raise her legs because they are short. The middle seat is not properly locked.
