All seemed well until a month ago when I got up to 22,000 miles. This is when I noticed a whistling sound when on the highway and the accelerator is depressed. It seems to happen around 65mph. Of course the dealership claimed they couldn't duplicate my concern. I am making another appointment and will ride with them this time to point out noise. Has anyone else experienced this time? I was thinking of buying out the lease, but not sure now.
The mechanic explained that bolts were stripped on the inside of th differential and the thumping noise I heard was the entire diff moving around...once again, if you have any doubts get it checked out by Nissan. Oh, and it will take nearly a week to get your car back so make them get you a rental.
I will keep up to date if anything further is found...
my husband and i are considering it as we have a baby on the way and cant afford nor do we want a car wiht so many problems.
also how long did it take?
my friend and i were in town last saturday i thought something was wrong but she told me i was crazy,but as we got into town where the stoplights where my car would not accelarate the cars in front of me would continusly be a good 100 feet ahead of me before my car even registered i was pressing the gas.
i thought it was the oil since i was overdue but i took it to the grease pig in fay,ar and they said that everything was fine and my oil wasnt bad at all, so needless to say i left wihtout getting it changed.
we then proceeded to go to th place we bought it and they told us it wasnt there problem that we needed to go to nissan. we went and they also didnt do anything as it ran fine for them and also fine untill i got home.
blah blah it did it again once.
but yesterday i got into my car to go to the store and i thought my car was going to blow up.
the rpms would staty at 3 even though it was floored it sounded like i had it in neutral, as i turned it sounded like i had drums in the back of my car.( being 81/2 months pregnant makes me a little paranoid) my da is a mercades mechanic and told my husband and i it wasnt drivable so this morning we had it towed to the dealer can someone please tell me what is going on?????
The new differential lasted all of 1,500 miles. The car is now at 5,000 miles and is going into the shop for the second replacement differential (this makes 3 in the car now in the first 5,000 miles). I'm not sure if I feel safe in this car any longer because of the possibility of the wheels locking up due to differential issues. Do I have any options?
Beware of a metallic thump when reversing with wheel turned or going forward. If it feels like your AWD is slipping or grinding it may very well be! I had these issues at just over 500 miles and took it into the dealer. The rear differential is shot and the car isn't road safe, so take it into the dealer immediately! According to the dealer, this is a manufacturer's defect and they are replacing the $2,000 part for free under warranty of course.

I have a rogue 2011 sv fwd. it's been a year since i owned it. And here is my story, whenever i turned the engine off after using it for short or long drives, there is a minimal clunking metallic noise i hear everyday which lasts around 5 minutes to the max. It is just minimal and coming mostly from all tires or underneath the rogue. To thes describe it better, they're like coins being rubbed against each other.
I just wonder if this is normal or anyone is experiencing the same?
Ever since, we have been enjoying our "Black Betty" thoroughly. I really enjoy the Rogue. It's been comfortable, very reliable (no problems other than the whistling wind noise issue, which has been fixed), and now, after it having been broken-in (close to 8K miles, now), I find it fun to drive, as well. I've even grown to love the steering: it's not as direct and fun to drive as my last Mazda, but it's close. The Rogue, though, is definitely faster and still handles well.
I was looking forward to testing out the Rogue more in the snow, but we haven't had a real winter here in NYC. We had two days of snow all in all and my experience in the Rogue in the snow was fantastic. Was wishing I had more snow days, but hey, I'll keep wishing.
I get better than EPA mileage. I tossed a seat I don't use, don't drive like a demon, keep the psi checked on the tires, don't haul extra gear in the car, don't race up to stop signs, don't idle and I track every tank of gas as a way to generally tell how the systems are running.
My van started getting better mpg around 5,000 miles, but didn't really hit its stride until ~10,000 miles and kept inching up incrementally from then on.
What Really Saves Gas? And How Much?
Save Gas with Smart Driving and Slick Aerodynamics
One other thing you can do is use "pure gas". It costs more but the increased mpg that people typically get may offset the extra price at the pump.
I obviously love the Rogue enough to have gotten a second one. When I was looking I test drove a Sportage, Rav4, Tuscon, Soul, CX-7, and CRV. Came right back to the Rogue, which honestly shocked me.
My only gripe is the lack of a pull-down cup holder in the back seat (like the Murano), and the GPS. My parents have a 2009 Murano and we always called the GPS Witch Hazel. The 2012 GPS is not any better. The routing it takes you on is absolutely insane at times. I'm keeping my Garmin for backup if I'm going somewhere unfamiliar.
I have not been able to get a resolution on this issue, but it is a known defect. Nissan sent an engineer out to inspect my car in January, and they have now had the opportunity to correct the issue five times.
I experience the popping noise, and my navigation reboots itself. The console has actually shut down entirely at some points. Nissan has tried to work with me by offering me free services for my patience. As I stated initially, this problem has been ongoing since I was driving the car home from the dealership that first day. I find the popping noise, and the rebooting to be a substantial impairment to the use and the value of my automobile. I'm really considering pursuing a lemon law claim, and have a call into that same Nissan engineer to see what my options are.
You need to follow-up with this. Nissan knows it is an issue, and they are willing to attempt to accommodate you. I'm looking for the fully functioning car that I spent my good money on - which as of this date I have not been able to realize or enjoy unencumbered by this issue.
Also - I'm curious what state you are in because Nissan states that this issue is specific to Florida.
My service engine light came on, took it in. They told me it was the vent control valve. I have yet to get it replaced, mostly because I'm sure I can find a mechanic cheaper than the dealership.
Similar thing happened with my Rogue. I signal ahead to switch from left turning lane to regular lane. The other car was 300 ft back when I switched lanes. As I was turning (Rogue hesitated a little - next post) the b*tch behind honked continuosly, cut in front me and kept staring at me from her rearview mirror. I later on checked my turn signal and darn it blink RED !!! Also on other occasion when I signal car behind don't slow down, they do when I drive my '02 Accord.
I am driving the car easy since it is still new so it could just be me but I highly doubt it as others also reported CVT trans being stuck sometimes.
There is a O/D button besides the Sports button. I will try those next time.
