  • 65,000 miles
On 4 different occasions within less than 60 days, my 2017 Nissan Rogue has tried to "stop" on its own while I have been driving for no reason. There is nothing in front of me on the sides of me or close behind me when it occurs. It has varied in the speeds I have been driving, it hasn't happened during one specific speed. When it occurs, it beeps multiple times and I can hear my brakes locking up for a split second and then it stops. The first time it happened, I was going around 30 mph in town (thankfully I wasn't on the interstate) and I truly thought my car had come to a complete stop or died right there in the road. Each time my car messes up, it always makes the same noise, makes the same 3-4 beeps and then tries to lock up. I took it to my local Nissan store in jackson, ms and they informed me that nothing was wrong with my car- but my gut just says other wise. It scares me to think that this might happen on the interstate, at a much higher speed, with my family in the car with me. Please help!

Driving down the street about 40 mph with no one else around, thankfully, the Rogues aeb started to kick in. The sensor area is clean and no reason for it to activate. Not the first time this has happened and seriously scared us.

On August 22, 2019, while driving the automatic emergency breaking system engaged (flashing lights, warning beeps and a grinding noise) while I was driving about 30 to 40 mph, causing the car to stall and forcibly jerk. This almost caused me to get rear ended. There was no obstruction ahead. This had already happened 2 other times and the dealership could not find anything wrong with it. I took it immediately after it happened the third time

Starting from 2017 up until 8/5/2019 after obtaining my 2017 Nissan rouge my initial complaint was the seat, it is horrible, my complaints brought no results from Nissan. Then after I began to notice while driving a loud humming sound as if the car was out of gear and the car would slow to a halt or stall/stop while driving or I would pull over because of the familiar sound, not sure what the matter was then I would see this funny little symbol like a crash of something of sort. This happened several times but this last time it had a blatantly flash the little crash symbol came up again but now with an explanation mark and a consistent warning telling me it was a malfunction the car came to a halt before I could pull out the shell gas station. I┐M so thankful that it stopped at the station instead of happening as I merged into traffic as it had in the past. I called the dealership and they at 1st I was told they were swamped and I had to make an appointment when my call was transferred so I could make my appointment I explained the situation to customer service agent and she contacted the repair supervisor; I think his name was steve or stephen and he advised her to tell me to tow the car to the dealer ship because trying to drive it would be dangerous. Once I made it home I tuned into the news and there was an investigative report on abc 7 Chicago news saying that many have similar complaints as mine. I am very afraid to continue driving this car; it needs to be recalled because it is dangerous and I no longer trust the vehicle.

The Rogue caught fire after being parked for 12 hours. The car burned completely to the ground. It happened around 4:00A and no one was in the vehicle or around the vehicle when it occurred. No investigation has been done and am waiting for instructions from the insurance company. This is a fleet vehicle from my company. There were no accessories plugged into the car like a cell phone, or other device. The only items inside the car was a suitcase with clothing, child car seat, car covers, sunglasses, and miscellaneous small items.

At 8000 miles, I had to have the right front strut replaced, and now I have 23,000 miles on it and I am going on my 4th strut, right front. A popping clicking noise when I turn or back up. Driving a 4 hr trip, while driving about 3 hrs, the air conditioning froze up and stopped working. I could hear the fan on full blast but nothing was coming out. I turned it off for 20 minutes and then it came back on with cool air. It is in the shop now for a heater/cooler box and the 4th strut replacement.

Brake warning light comes on dashboard and makes beeping sound when brake is not on, while I'm driving. Its been leaking under the dashboard by the foot pedals, almost every time we get a good rain shower in Florida. When I get in after a rain and drive, it plus in on my feet or the passenger side.I asked them to check it and they said my windshield is the problem I should take it to my insurance to deal with. The car is extra loud even when window are altho way up. Headlights are very weak, you can barely see them on the road at night.

Tamara recall.... the vehicle was turning left lane on a city street when a car came out of nowhere the sensors didn┐T beep & the airbags supposedly had been serviced or repaired by dealer but they never deployed & it was a frontal crash. Plus dealer already had knowledge of this type of fault but still didn┐T bother telling me but put it in 1 of the service maintenance invoices and I think dealer is doing mischief please investigate... thank U 4 ur time.... P.S they have done repairs on the vehicle that are not required yet as well I am a certified auto technician a.S.E certifications

At 11,500 the car decreased in braking ability. The dealer was going to charge an enormous amount just to look at the brakes. Took the car to our reliable mechanic to receive the trust and not be ripped off. The rotors are glazed which prevents the brakes to stop the car quickly. Nissan refused to take care of this problem. It is drivable because it does stop, just not quickly. But at inspection time, it probably won't pass. At 13,100, the serpentine belt and the alternator let go while driving. This was covered under warranty, but should not happen at 13,100 miles. This happened while driving the car. The car jerked and pulled over immediately and towed to the dealership.

Small particles were able to pass through condenser and hit where the freon is stored which made the freon leak. Not sure where or what kind of particles could pass through the condenser while driving on the freeway. Did go to a Nissan dealership and was told they were unsure of what could go through the condenser to cause the damage. There are small holes in my condenser.
