Rogue 2.5L

  • CVT transmission
  • 122,955 miles

Another CVT on the same car so in total this is the third CVT in this car which I had to have done as I couldn't afford another vehicle at this time. Nissan will get off easy with extended warranty and some replacements but I would never trust another Nissan - this my first and my last.

Rogue 2.5L

  • CVT transmission
  • 39,792 miles

I wouldn't expect a CVT to go at just under 40,000 miles but as I have learned, Nissan CVTs are junk. I have another failure of this replacement at 122,915 so this one wasn't covered again - there's only 80,000 on this CVT.

Rogue SV V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100,000 miles

Well, my transmission went out and it took a few months to come up with the money to fix it, and I got another used transmission with only 66,000 miles on it - and it's having the same problems.

Rogue SV 2.5L

  • CVT transmission
  • 109,361 miles

CVT completely failed with no warning, Never whined and no previous indicators that it needed maintenance. Fluid changed at manufacturer recommended intervals. Dealer said that it required a complete new transmission. There is a class action lawsuit in the USA that included this car for this issue but Nissan Canada will not honor anything unless legally required. I was literally told this on the phone, that they know about the issues but won't do anything until legally required to do so.

Rogue SL 2.5L V4

  • CVT transmission
  • 102,000 miles

Nissan Rogue is the worst car you can buy. Stay away from cvt transmissions, and I'll never buy Nissan again.

Rogue SL

  • CVT transmission
  • 61,420 miles

I started noticing the jerky stuttering and lurching at low speed during acceleration and at higher speed going downhill when decelerating. It got worse with time. I called Nissan in Bennington, VT but they were closed because of the pandemic. So I lived with it for a while but it got really bad so I called again and they did a diagnostic. I was told that the cvt needed to be replaced. It was 1420 miles past warranty or 3 months past warranty. Had they been open the first time I went, it would have been covered. It was a $4000.00 replacement and the new one is only covered for 1 year or 10000 miles. I had conversations with Nissan corporate and they are not interested in me.

Rogue SV

  • CVT transmission
  • 108,100 miles

I bought a 2015 Nissan Rogue in March 2015. At 33,000 miles I was required to replace the CVT transmission - under warranty. Today 3 years down the road with 108,100 miles on it, I'm required to do the same! Not under warranty - costing me $4200 to replace in Massachusetts? One question : WTF?
