The new Rogue, with its first redesign since 2014, feels more substantial, similar to the transformation we saw with the latest Sentra sedan. We found the Rogue to be taut and agile, relatively quiet, and user-friendly, making it a compelling small SUV. Powered by a 181-hp, four-cylinder that’s teamed with a continuously variable transmission (CVT), the Rogue provides smooth but unexciting acceleration.

Reliability indicates how models have performed in the past, providing the basis for predicting how the vehicles will hold up in the year ahead. These charts provide the most comprehensive reliability information available to consumers. Based on information received from our latest subscriber survey for about 329,000 vehicles, our reliability history charts give you a rundown on how 2000 through 2020 vehicles are holding up in 17 potential trouble spots, ranging from the engine, transmission, and brakes to power equipment and the electrical system. NA 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.
