To cut a long story short, opened a file with Nissan and they replaced the transmission after 2 Nissan techs were sent to Houston to inspect the vehicle. Seemed a bit better but now 3 weeks later back to the same old problems.
I am told it is a problem that Nissan are aware of but no tech fix available.
I just contacted Nissan Consumer Affairs again and I guess the next step is a Texas lemon law filing if they refuse to buy back.
When you buy a new car, you expect much more than this. Come on Nissan, get it together.
May I ask is your a FWD or AWD? I have recently purchased a nissan rogue and I am just curious. TIA.
Hope this helps!
Hopefully soon things will get figured out and I can stop driving an hour to the dealership to get sent home with a Versa in a snowstorm in MI!
can someone put a video clip or sound clip of what the noise sound like? my friend has a 2010 rogue and she said she's hearing some kind of noise recently at low speed (when she cruises to a stop light). I just want to confirm if it's the same noise or not.
Notice my warnings to Murano owners:
Don't be fooled! Nissan is experiencing numerous problems with their CVT's but refuses to officially recall the very defective transmission design. Nissan has taken an "arrogant" position on this issue. My '03 Murano SE has had been in the shop 3 times with CVT problems the last was a total failure. The cost was $6300 Carriage Nissan in Gainesville, GA. The warranty was extended to 120K but was worthless to me. The region Nissan rep. (Christy) refused any help and was rather rude to boot.
My advice is, if your Murano is approaching 120K miles get rid of it! The CVT is a ticking time bomb. If your dilemma is similar to mine I am filing a complaint with: NTSB; federal and state consumer protection agencies; and, Nissan of Japan.
Warning!!! Get rid of that Murano and buy anything else!
I would seriously look at a Honda product before I would by any Nissan product.
You can read my posts under "mikesmurano" in the Murano section.
I got rid of mine after five years and went to an Acura for my wife and a Toyota for me.
"No more Nissans for me"! :lemon:
Say good bye to your CVT transmission. Get it into the dealer. My guess is the CVT oil pump is going out. Had the exact same symptoms with my Murano.
Hopefully it is still under warranty.
Best of luck. :sick:
Guess I wasn't clear in what I said about Nissan settling. They paid their lawyer, my lawyer, and settled with me for prob twice as much as Nissan could have been out for getting me out of the vehicle. I don't feel that I got what I was out. BTW, I tried the Rep & Senator route and got nowhere!!!
Corporate Assist Trade is same as Dealer-Assist Trade...with Manufacturer picking up the difference. Would think that you could get the warranty info from Nissan.
Thought I would mention that a guy I know had a bad Jeep...accelerating probs like you are describing. He went to the county courthouse and filed a doc stating the problems with the vehicle and that the manufacturer had not corrected...said if he got in an accident this might help him go back on the manufacturer.
I had an old Honda...from 1992 (brand new) to 2010. That car did me right! It had transmission problems in the end, I believe thanks to a mechanic I brought it to here in Queens...long story. Anyway, it got me where I needed to go and hung in there. I am so sad that I traded that car in for the Nissan. Don't get me wrong, I needed a car, but the fact that it was as old as it was, when something did go wrong with it, which was very, very, very rare, it didn't hurt like this does. This rogue piece of crap is brand new and that's what is killing me. I could probably count the # of times I actually drove the car. We had 1700 miles in before we left for Maine. C'mon.
Thank you so much again and I hope it is all working out for you. They will get what they deserve in the end!
What exactly was wrong with your Rogue anyway???? I don't think you explained that.
My Rogue did not lose acceleration. If I were having a problem like this, I believe I would try to contact the NTSB!!!!!!!! That is an extreme safety problem. Their contact info should be in the instruction manual that came with your vehicle. Lots of luck!!!!!!
I had two replacements within 40 days and also a re programming that seemed to take down my MPG since part of the fix was to eliminate freewheel and keep the tension on the CVT belt to eliminate the belt hitting the tranny case.
Nissan it seemed to me did step up and I had one of the better dealers with a great service department.
My car has only 4 k miles since that repair and the noise has come back on occasion at slow speeds. I suspect the electronic tune up between the engine and tranny has been adjusted over time and now I need to get it checked again since the car sat all summer in the garage when on vacation for 3 months.
My wife loves her car and so do I as the fit and finish and build are excellent and my grand kids call Nanas car cool and my boat old fashion looking.
I am positive Nissan is still stepping up to this CVT problem and yes all of the dealers are aware of the Rattle in this model CVT. Be persistent and focus on the CVT issue when taking it to the dealer. Let them know this is a known Nissan problem and they are helping most people.
Nissan has extended the CVT transmission warranty to 10 yrs/120K mi for 08-10 Rogue, and 03-10 Murano, 2011 model year is not included. Does anyone know if they “fixed” transmission issues, or they are just being hopeful?
In all fairness, according to the Consumer Reports only 08 Rogue and 03-04 Murano have major transmission problems, all other models years are much above average. Hopefully, whatever issues they were having have been addressed.
The first time this happened, I tried manually "shifting" using the override, to no effect. Also tried dropping the car into neutral, and the engine revved just fine. So not a gearing issue and not a fuel availability issue. Assume it has something to do with the complex coordination required between the throttle and CVT, through the car's engine management control or throttle control.
First time we brought it in, dealer said it was actually related to a recent campaign, they adjusted, and the problem went away. About a month/2 later, the problem resurfaced, only worse. Car had to be towed to the dealer after just barely making it home. This time, my wife and two little kids were in the car. I'd say that going to pull out onto a busy road with a family in a car, and finding it's got no power but is still barely moving is a big safety issue.
This second time, it took a week to get the car back as the dealer had to wait several days for the part. I drove the car for a month before my wife would feel comfortable getting in it again (and don't blame her for it), which of course limits the utility of a second car.
10 months later, same thing happened (now 12,000 miles total on the car), right after my wife picked up the kids from school. She will, officially, never get in the car again and again, I don't blame her. We reached out to the dealer to indicate we want out of the lease; the response through them from Nissan was essentially, "Sure, pay us the balance of your remaining payments on the car and you can get out of it." The car is now on a tow truck to the dealer and a call to customer care suggested they want to await the verdict from the dealer's service department before they'll do anything. So we'll see. In the end, we want out of this very dangerous death trap. Based on what we're seeing here, it's appaling that this seems to be a problem that's not unique and deserves the attention of governmental authorities who are supposed to protect us from this kind of thing.

The same thin happens 3 moth later. The dealer do not fine nothing bad
with the car and now was towed because it was not start for 2 days..
I have a maintence question regarding the special wheels that my krom has. I took a quick reading on owner manual yesterday. There is one thing that confused me. It said the krom model cannot be wash at the car wash! I am shocked! It said the acid will damage the body and the wheels. What? You want me to hand wash my car every time? It also states the underneath of car should be cleaned reguarly because of the snow salt (that I understand). Now I don't how to wash the underneath of the car without visiting the car wash? I like to hear your opinion. I appreciate your input. Thanks. :confuse:
The car is 2010 Nissan Rogue with under 5000 miles on it - purchased on 9/29/2010
Drove 550 miles to visit my parents. Everything was good.
On the way home, I tried driving over a mountain pass and got stuck at 2500 RPM's and could not accelerate no matter how far I pushed the gas.
2009 Rogue S AWD 53k miles.
It turned out, according to the nissan dealership, that there was excessive tranny oil pressure built up and it started a "boiling effect". This caused the car to go into a "safety mode". The CVT update was never done to it either. I am picking up the car later today but hopefully this is the last of the issues I have with it. Otherwise, it has been great.
Is this normal? I am assuming this has something to do with the AWD disengaging in reverse or something, but I am no mechanic. Is this something that would warrant a visit to the dealer for? Anyone else heard this on their Rogue?
Other than this noise, the vehicle runs perfect with no other noises or sensations when driving it.
It's really annoying to me since I don't ALWAYS drive with the music on (great Bose system, btw), and sometimes I like to just have a quiet ride on the highway and this noise definitely impedes that. Plus, it's disappointing because the car is great and, otherwise, has such a quiet (except in the rain) and nice interior. Doesn't really give you the quality feeling when you're driving a $28K brand new car and have wind leaking somewhere, whistling annoyingly at you when driving at normal highway speeds. BTW, the faster you drive, the more noticeable it gets.
Does anyone else have this issue? If so, what have you done to take care of it, and will the Nissan dealer fix it?
Here's the infofrom service report: "Sunroof glass slightly out of alignment. Realignedsunroff glass to better fit roof opening."
All ok now from my end.
