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 it now ranks among the better small SUVs. The Rogue has grown larger and more accommodating; it has a spacious cabin, easy access, and plenty of room in the rear seat.

Owner Reported Trouble Spots

The Reliability score is based on our latest subscriber survey of 2019 Nissan Rogue owners. The owner comments describe problems respondents experienced with this vehicle.

In-car Electronics

CD or DVD players, radio, speakers, GPS, communication system (e.g., OnStar), display screen freezes or goes blank, phone pairing (e.g. Bluetooth), voice control commands, steering wheel controls, portable music device interface (e.g., iPod/MP3 player), backup or other camera/sensors.

What Owners Say

Apple CarPlay

"CarPlay had intermittent problems soon after I leased the vehicle. It would work well the first time you connected any iOS device, but would take more and more attempts to activate, and stopped working completely within four months. I determined that the head unit failed during a firmware update and took it to the dealership, only to be told that Nissan no longer supported CarPlay, something that is demonstrably false. After two more attempts to get the dealership to resolve the issue, I filed a complaint with Nissan, which led me to another dealership, which gave me the same false answer. I'd completely given up, until Nissan issued a recall for the head unit related to the backup camera. I went to yet another new dealership, who quickly resolved the issue with a new firmware update. I haven't had any issues with CarPlay since then."

The lack of an image in the back-up camera display increases the risk of a crash.
Summary:
Nissan North America, Inc. (Nissan) is recalling certain 2018-2019 Nissan Altima, Armada, Frontier, Kicks, Leaf, Maxima, Murano, NV, NV200, Pathfinder, Rogue, Rogue Sport, Sentra, Titan, Titan Diesel, Versa Note and Versa Sedan vehicles, as well as Infiniti Q50, Q60, QX30 and QX80 vehicles. Additionally included are 2019 Nissan GT-R and Taxi and Infiniti QX50, QX60, Q70, Q70L vehicles. The back-up camera and display settings can be adjusted such that the rear view image is no longer visible and the system will retain that setting the next time the vehicle is placed in reverse. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 111, "Rear Visibility."
What should you do:
Nissan will notify owners in phases, having dealers update the back-up camera settings software, free of charge. The recall began November 11, 2019 and all affected VINs should be activated. Owners may contact Nissan customer service at 1-800-867-7669 or INFINITI customer service at 1-800-662-6200.
