The Rogue is compact and pleasant, with secure, responsive handling and a nice ride. It nicely balances economy and acceleration. Interior quality is very good, but the cargo area is very modest. Poor rear visibility is a demerit.

Anonymous, (2013 Nissan Rogue SV 2.5-L 4 Cyl)

"I bought it certified pre-owned. They gave me a 7 year(from new sale date) 100000 mile warranty. At about 75000 miles I started to hear a ticking noise when cold for just a few minutes that sounded like the valves might need adjusting (not necessary of course) ((just in the coldest part of the winter, which isn't much in southern California)). When I got to 91000 miles on the 100000 warranty I decided to take it to the dealer and ask about the noise. They said their measurements were out of factory specs and they would fix it. After looking deeper they said the bottom end was bad too and they gave me a whole rebuilt engine. I thought that was quite a deal at 91000 miles. They rented me a car for a week and the job was done for a $50 deductible on my part. Very good dealer service."
