Q. In July I bought a low mileage 2015 Nissan Rogue SV. After a month or so, I started to notice a vibration in the steering wheel, primarily when driving between 20 to 45 miles per hour at a constant 1,250 revolutions per minute. I took the vehicle back to the dealer, and they looked at it for a few days. They told me they found and replaced a bad exhaust mount and that the vibration was virtually gone. Unfortunately, that didn’t take care of the vibration. I took the Rogue to a second dealer and was told that transmission is designed to cause the vibration. I asked them why I didn’t feel the vibration in any of the other new or used Rogues I test drove. They just answered that the car is supposed to have a vibration and suggested that I call Nissan if I wasn’t happy. I can’t believe that Nissan has sold over one million Rogues, and all have a built-in vibration in the steering wheel. I really like the vehicle, but the vibration is annoying when driving on … [Read more...] about Why does my Nissan Rogue have an annoying vibration?
Share Tweet Share Email Comments Print It would be understandable to assume the Nissan Rogue Sport is a more energetic version of Nissan’s perennial top-selling vehicle. But there’s more — and less — than that to Nissan’s lithe-looking crossover. WATCH: Rouge Sport offers more comfortable ride than you’d expect Though based on the well-established Rogue, the Rogue Sport joined Nissan’s lineup last year an entirely separate model that attempts to split the difference between the burgeoning subcompact and compact crossover segments. And, after having spent a week living with the Rogue Sport, we can say it does that quite well.

By EMMA JAYNE WILLIAMS The Rogue is still Nissan’s best selling vehicle, setting records for 2017 and continuing strong for 2018. This small crossover is actually a very mainstream choice, despite the “Rogue” label, which is often used to describe someone who defies convention. For 2018, Nissan gives the five-seater a massive tech upgrade, including an option with advanced technology putting Rogue on the road to self-driving: Nissan’s ProPilot Assist, included in a Platinum Package, along with an additional USB port, 19-inch alloy wheels and Electronic Parking Brake. Basic updates include an infotainment system with a seven-inch screen and newly standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto on every model, a power liftgate standard on higher models, and two new paint colors, Scarlet Ember (medium red, adds $395), and Midnight Pine (deep black/green). The optional third row has been dropped; it was so confining as to be almost useless. The top grade adds standard … [Read more...] about Nissan Rogue proves to be a popular compact crossover for US consumers
The 2018 Nissan Rogue Sport, while sharing the Rogue name, platform and numerous advanced safety and security features, stands on its own as a stylish, nimble, fun-to-drive and affordable compact SUV. By G. CHAMBERS WILLIAMS III If an automaker has a hot-selling vehicle these days, it doesn’t hurt to offer a variant, especially at a lower price. That’s exactly what Nissan did with last year’s introduction of the Rogue Sport, a slightly shorter and smaller version of the Rogue compact crossover, based on the specs of the previous generation of the same car. The Rogue Sport continues for 2018 as a strictly five-passenger slightly junior-size version of the regular Rogue, but with a lower starting price – just $21,640 (plus $995 freight), compared with $24,800 for the bigger brother. Those prices are for the entry level S model of both vehicles, with a continuously variable transmission and front-wheel drive. Nissan added the Rogue Sport for 2017 after keeping the … [Read more...] about Nissan Rogue Sport compact crossover is smaller, costs less than regular Rogue
While it’s a mild refresh, the new 2018.5 Nissan Rogue Sport gets a wide array of safety features as standard equipment. Prices tick up for the Rogue Sport, with a new starting price of $23,085, $470 more than the outgoing 2018 model. The mid-tier SV trim goes up $500 to $24,715, and the range-topping SL jumps $900 to $28,165. All prices include the $975 destination charge. Available all-wheel drive can be had on all three trims for an extra $1,350. In exchange, all Nissan Rogue Sports get standard automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert. The top-level SL gets standard adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, and lane keep assist, features that can also be had on the SV trim in the SV Technology Package. The Rogue Sport joins seven other Nissan models in offering standard automatic emergency braking, including the Altima, Leaf, Maxima, Murano, Pathfinder, Rogue and Sentra. Nissan made the decision last year to offer the active … [Read more...] about Nissan adds standard automatic emergency braking to 2018.5 Rogue Sport
