Reliability History Reliability History The reliability charts are based on responses on hundreds of thousands of vehicles from our latest Annual Auto Survey. Consumer Reports subscribers reported on any serious problems they had with their vehicles during the past 12 months that they considered serious because of cost, failure, safety, or downtime, in any of the trouble spots included in the table below. The results are presented relative to the average model that year. Extra weight is given to the more serious areas such as major engine or transmission problems. Based on this data and further analysis, we predict reliability for the latest year. N/A indicates that we did not receive a large enough sample size to provide data for a specific year. An X indicates that the vehicle was not manufactured for a specific year.

Road Test

Rather than Rogue, Nissan could have named this redesigned SUV "Mr. Congeniality." True, that's not very macho, but the model stands out as an easy-to-drive, family-friendly vehicle. And, this version ranks well among the better small SUVs.

This revised Rogue was larger and more accommodating. It has a spacious cabin, easy access, and plenty of room in the rear seat. Refinement also improved dramatically, with a relatively quiet and more comfortable ride than is usual in the class. Other enhancements include more responsive handling, improved fuel economy of 24 mpg overall and a continuously variable transmission that's smoother and quieter than the previous version's.

Owner Reported Trouble Spots

The Reliability score is based on our latest subscriber survey of 2015 Nissan Rogue owners. The owner comments describe problems respondents experienced with this vehicle.

Body Integrity

Squeaks, rattles, wind noises, loose or cracked seals and/or weather-stripping, air and water leaks.

What Owners Say

Air or water leaks

"Apparently the drains for the sunroof on this car get easily clogged. Water then collects in sunroof channels and leaks into cabin."

Richard O., CA (2015 Nissan Rogue SL 2.5-L 4 Cyl)

"Moon roof drains stopped up. Caused smell."

Anonymous, AL (2015 Nissan Rogue SL 2.5-L 4 Cyl)

"Drain lines for the sun roof become clogged easily and water streams into the car. Have experienced it twice in the past two years. $200+ dollars to resolve each time and continues to occur despite not using the sunroof."

Anonymous, (2015 Nissan Rogue SL 2.5-L 4 Cyl)

"The drains at the bottom of the windshield got clogged with debris (leaves, etc). This resulted in water draining against the firewall instead of down to the pavement when the car was parked. The firewall is not properly sealed to prevent moisture from coming into the passenger compartment. I ended up with a gallon or more of water in the passenger floor and carpets. The carpets had mold and had to be removed and steam cleaned. It was. $1,500 problem caused by poor vehicle design by Nissan."

Anonymous, BC (2015 Nissan Rogue SV 2.5-L 4 Cyl)

"The drains for the sunroof that are located near the windshield wipers became clogged. Once clogged the overflow ran down the engine wall and seeped into the interior of the vehicle. I had an accumulation of more than an inch of water in the carpets and floorboard of the vehicle. $1000 repair."

Anonymous, BC (2015 Nissan Rogue SV 2.5-L 4 Cyl)

"I had water leaking inside of the tailgate window. I noticed it the second day I had the car. It was a significant size leak. They sent the car to a window shop who tried to re-seal the window but that didn't work so then they replaced it. Took 3 day"

Catrina P., NY (2015 Nissan Rogue SL 2.5-L 4 Cyl)
Seals and/or weather-stripping

"The door seals appear to be poor quality, even with regular cleaning and wiping with a cloth dampened with silicone, they are not sealing enough."

Anonymous, FL (2015 Nissan Rogue SL 2.5-L 4 Cyl)

"The car has an elongated moon roof. had it to the dealer ,charged me 400.00 still leaked, took back to dealer wanted to charge me 2000.00 to fix because of different moon roof leak. I stated they didn't fix it right the first time. I said fix or replace with comparable car. They kept a week and no charge to me. I still leaked and was told that its designed to leak at those areas. I gave up, I guess that's what they wanted."

Anonymous, GA (2015 Nissan Rogue SL 2.5-L 4 Cyl)

"On the sunroof, the seals and drainage system is deficient. This caused significant leakage. This seems to be a problem with Nissan and Infinity cars. The manufacturer should recall and fix the problem. We fixed it ourselves but not before permanent damage was done to the Rogue."

"Weather striping is torn in several places around drivers door"

David H., WA (2015 Nissan Rogue SV 2.5-L 4 Cyl)

"The sunroof drain was defective, causing water to enter the cabin. The carpets have been replaced, but the odor, which is very bad, continues"

Geoffrey D., TN (2015 Nissan Rogue SL 2.5-L 4 Cyl)

"Only driver’s side front door; sometimes after rain (never a car wash) I open door and find a small puddle sitting on door jam. Dealership tested moonroof - no leaks there. Can visibly see worn weather stripping. Can’t predict when this will repeat, as again, car wash doesn’t cause it, but sometimes after a rain it is there the next morning or hours later?!"

Trevor D., WA (2015 Nissan Rogue SL 2.5-L 4 Cyl)

"The sunroof leaked due to the drainage tube becoming blocked. The dealer said this required annual maintenance for this not to happen. They also said I should not park the vehicle outside. And it required 5 business days to fix. Afterwards the vehicle had an sickly aroma of glue, since the interior roof material had to be replaced. The stench still exists 3 months later."

Squeaks or rattles

"Unexpected, occasional squeaks happen, even while driving on a straight and level road"

Anonymous, FL (2015 Nissan Rogue SL 2.5-L 4 Cyl)

"heat shields and tie downs for the muffler are poorly designed and required multiple visits to repair shop to get it to stop"

"Passenger window makes a massive click when rolled down all the way, dealer looked at this twice, lubricated track, problem still exists. Rattling from rear passenger area, turned out that a stone made its way in between the rotor and the back plate, causing the sound. I have never had this happen on any cars I ave owned."

Anonymous, VA (2015 Nissan Rogue SL 2.5-L 4 Cyl)

"Nothing serious, but with only 15000 miles on a 3 year old car, my wife insists it should be more silent. (It is her car and she is very fond of it.) Some of the noises she hears, I can't (my ears are not sensitive enough), and some may be due to items located elsewhere in the car."

"Nissan is NOT updating the navigation software. No reason given but it has basically made navigation useless. Nissan is not giving a reason but third-party indicates it is a known problem with the system and is unable to accept updates. No offer from Nissan to fix or replace."

Mark A., TX (2015 Nissan Rogue SL 2.5-L 4 Cyl)

"The car did not come with the factory SD card. The dealer bought an SD card for me as part of purchase deal. When I inserted the card, the infotainment system would not start. Had to take to dealer. After 2 hours, they could not fix, but when someone slammed the door on the car (leaving the maintenance area to tell me it still was not working), it magically started. Has worked fine ever since."

Benjamin H., GA (2015 Nissan Rogue SL 2.5-L 4 Cyl)

"The entire touch screen system is poor. Too small targets one must hit with fingers to select radio stations or other aspects that one wants to control. Too much time spent with eyes off road, and vehicle bouncing causes wrong button to be pushed. The GPS system is difficult to navigate (pardon the pun). It is inaccurate compared to Apple I-phone and even from my own knowledge of a specific area. It is difficult/impossible to enter addresses you know exist; it does not believe you and insists on a different and totally wrong address. It won't accept general locations: specify a town and it still wants a street address. Very clunky system"

The transmission fell apart again this week and is currently in the shop to have the transmission rebuilt. Luckily the second transmission was still under warranty. I looked on the NHTSA website and saw that some models of the Nissan Rogue transmissions were recalled, however, NHTSA did not specify specific models and left it to Nissan to decide. I do not understand why specific models were not specified by NHTSA. Why is this left vague so the consumer has to rely on the Nissan for the answer. I found this very odd and unreliable."
