Fight for recall of CVT for Nissan Rogues and the like
I am reading that many consumers are having issues with brand new nissans and their CVT's...inlcuding mine. Just bought a new rogue in April. Drove it from NY to Maine with 1700 miles on it and trouble began. The service engine light came on and we had trouble accelerating...both in drive and in reverse. I believe this is a safety issue and should be brought to a higher level. I heard from multiple dealers that they are starting to see this issue as well, but Nissan doesn't seem to know how to correct it. I am giving them time to correct the issue with my rogue, but if they do not correct it and do not reimburse me for an extra night of accommodations due to us getting stuck in MA on the way home and a rent a car which I am avoiding for right now due to cost, I will be writing to my congressman and to the senate to make them aware of the safety issue this is causing all of us. We lost acceleration power while coming out of a toll on Rt. 95 and when trying to get back onto the highway after filling the rogue with gas, the acceleration was so horrible that I didn't chance getting onto that highway with oncoming traffic...I believe on Rt. 1 in MA. If I was an inexperienced driver or just thought that the rogue would've made it onto that highway, there would've been a major accident causing bodily injury or death to myself and my husband and to all others involved. This is a huge safety concern and I feel we need to ban together to get this taken care of quickly!!! The CVT's, I was told from one of the dealers are on International back order...that in itself tells us something and also, the fact that the warranty for the CVT has been extended from 5 years/60K miles to 10 years/120K miles....that says something else. This is a huge issue causing many of us an inconvenience but also putting us in danger. I've already contacted Nissan NA and Nissan consumer affairs. If I don't hear anything from them soon or if I don't like what I am hearing, I will be escalating it from here. Consumers...let's stick together!!!!

For anyone having issues with the CVT and feel that the issue is causing/has caused a safety issue for you and the people in your car or cars around you, visit the site above. The more people that share their experience with them, the better our chances are of having these transmissions recalled or something. Something needs to be done. I've also included the address, if anyone wants to write to them and phone number, if anyone wants to call. I've emailed them via their website yesterday. No response as of yet. I'll give it a few days. My next step may be to call them and take it from there. Something needs to be done but I can't do it alone. We have to stick together and push on this. These transmissions are putting some of us in danger possibly causing injuries and/or deaths. Let's try to stop it sooner than later!!!!
Also, it was pretty simple to file a complaint online with Better Buisness Bureau (www.bbb.org) and I will be making a call to Nissan to see what they have to say.
I wont buy another...
I also had this problem and brought my 2010 Rogue to Kelly Nissan in Lynnefield. They said they were unaware of this as an issue. Which dealership did you take yours to in Boston?
Was this ever resolved?
Thought this might be of interest, since some of the material for the story was based on complaints found in these forums.

I do have the same problem since I got a new 2010 Nissan Rogue.
After a couple hours on highway 65-75 MPH if I had to pull over or stop the car will not go back to ride even I was pushing a gas pedal. It doesn't go forward or back. This happen all the time when we're in long trip. The dealer can't find problems. I've call Nissan multiple times they opened cases asked me to bring the car to the dealer and nothing done. In round trip Florida we almost had a 3 accidents becouse of this problem.
As I stated, currently my vehicle is at the service department of the dealership we purchased it from because the identical problem has returned. I was returning from Florida this past weekend, and attempted to accelerate when the vehicle completely failed to respond. I am in the process of trying to contact the owner of the dealership and see how he would like to handle the situation. I am going to request a completely different vehicle as my wife is scared to death to drive the vehicle at this point.
If anyone has any suggestions or questions, feel free to contact me. I will be posting how the dealership responds.
I bought this vehicle used from Yonkers Auto Mall in Yonkers, NY. It rode well on the test drive, even though I did hear the CVT drone that others in this post have mentioned. Literally, five days later, my partner and I took a trip to Atlanta, GA from NYC. On the way back, we had to pray for more than traveling mercies.
We could not accelerate even flooring the pedal. The Rogue just stayed stuck on 40 mi, then 60 mi and sometimes would allow him to get to 80mi in those zones. It took us over 15 hours to get from Atlanta to NYC! :surprise:
The issue, and I stressed this to the dealership when I called them on the phone the morning of our return to NYC, is one of safety. Their response was, basically, to shut up and deal with it. Then, we were told to take it to a Nissan dealership. We were on I-77 in West Bubbleflick. Where were we going to find a Nissan dealership? I could not even get Clear access to search on my MacBook Pro. Geez!
At one point during our trip (when we were unaware of the problem), an 18-wheeler rushed on us literally almost riding our bumper to pass, and we were stuck; we simply could not accelerate to move to the right lane. It was like we were stuck in mud or quicksand or something. At another point, a police car was trying to pass and we were the only vehicle that was in the way. We were lucky the officer did not take our license plate and radio for another to ticket us. (Unless it is coming in the mail.) Merging onto the highway was a complete nightmare.
Driving long distance is taxing enough. We could have done without the stress and anxiety concerning our own and other motorists' safety.
I will notify every commission, every local and national body that regulates automotives and share our story.
It is really sad the dealers and dealerships will pursue the (not so anymore) almight dollar at the expense of human safety and life.
Now, my partner and I are arguing over whether or not buy another Nissan at all. What a piece of junk. :mad:
