Sorry to read that some had challenges with warranty items. My shop tended to everyone of the items. Guess they stood by the brand. Just know that if it works and saves over time..it's done it's job.
Well coming from a Chrysler product it's hard not to buy something that would be an improvement reliability wise heh.

Apparently, the buyers missed all the CVT bashing thread here.

ps

Let's see how long this thread survives before it's banished to the "brand" corner to suffer a slow death.
Their NV van line is doing well among those who live out of those vehicles.

I'm sure it has nothing to do with the fact that they are dramatically cheaper that any higher quality competition, right? A quick search in my area has tons of new Rouges for a bit over $20K, and similar CRVs for $4K more. You get what you pay for. I've put hundreds of thousands of miles on several CRVs, with very little drama or cost, including nothing spent on repairs, just maintenance and consumables, for all three of them. Ask a genuine Nissan dealer tech. if that level of reliability is a reasonable expectation from a Rouge? (Don't be offended if he laughs at you. It is a silly question, after all.) Then ask him if he drives a Nissan with a disposable CVT? Next see if he knows why other brands can build CVTs that last for hundreds of thousands of miles without problems, yet many Nissan transmissions can't even keep their sheet together until the end of the warranty period?

FCA, Fiat, Mini, Nissan, etc...... do a great job of proving that popular, and best selling, have nothing to do with a buyer's good decision making skills, or ending up with a high quality, reliable, and durable product.

Florida, lots of Nissans, Kias, Dodge products ,and before that it was Mitsubishi stuff. Much of this can be attributed to one thing, that being, getting loans approved for marginal customers. Lots of low income folks in FL. and the manufacturers and dealers that can get more of them in a new car, and financed, are going to end up with a healthy market share. I spend winters just north of Tampa, and I'm always stunned by how many new 1/2 ton Ram pickups there are in that area. Once you see the giant discount ads, "we finance anybody" ads, "guaranteed $5000 for your trade" scams, and all the games played by the Dodge dealers, it all adds up. Marginal players, loooong loan terms, and shaky credit equals lots of Nissans. Honda and Toyota don't have to play that game.

And you know this for a fact are you in the automotive lending business or are you just guessing and do you have facts to back up your statements. Also I seen lots of BMW and Toyota and Kia and Hyundai in Florida so why is that.

And a Toyota pickup is a poor mans F150 because Toyota canít hold a candle to the F150 in sales of pickups.

A lot of people also donít realize that Nissan/Renault is fourth largest car manufacturer in the world.



Nissans tack has always been cheaper faster more raw Toyota.

The cars are generally fine and reliable (first gen CVTs notwithstanding). Iíve owned several
.
Exactly.

Rogue is outselling Ford Fusion, Ford Explorer, GMC Sierra, Chevy Malibu and Nissan's own Altima. What is your source, other than your neighbor?
