>>14217512 My mom just got the 2016 rogue and is absolutely in love with it. I drove a 2013 rogue for work over the summer. It was comfortable and got good mpgs. It actually had a bit of kick to it as well. Didn't have much trouble when merging on to highways. Room for groceries, luggage, and people.
Definitely not a flashy or fun vehicle, but for a commuter car for someone that just need funtionality and a way to get from a to b it's pretty great.
Since I've had it, the transmission was replaced twice. It had faulty wiring and would randomly disengage traction control. The transmission failed a total of 4 times, 3 times under warranty, all under 100k miles.
The car is currently at 90k miles, and I'm putting it up for sale. I can't deal with it anymore. My mom is assmad I'm selling it, but it's a fucking money pit.
>>14217512 >buying a nissan >2003+ Shiggy diggy. Shit interiors (in that gen rogue), and the cvt is shit. Nissans are for poor people. There's always money on the hood and they accept lots of people with mediocre/bad credit which means they're dumb so the cars aren't maintained properly.
Tell her to get a Mazda cx-5 if she must have a lame crossover.
The newest Rogues are supremely comfortable in terms of seating, and ride cushier than the rest of the compact CUV class. They're toward the larger end of the spectrum size wise, edging up to the 'tweener size that used to be occupied by the Sorento.
The older ones like you have pictured are much cheaper in terms of interior finish and have smaller cargo spaces, but are actually not too bad, considering the bargain basement prices they get blown out at (Rogue "Select"). My brother's wife has an '07 with 150k miles, no real issues that I can recall. My brother checked the CVT fluid and per the car's onboard diagnostics it still has 50% fluid life. He actually checked the condition of the fluid and he said it seemed fine, not burnt or dark. To be fair the car sees almost all highway and rural driving. With a set of snow tires it's a capable little beast in the snow, the AWD system has a locking function on the viscous coupling, useful in a pinch.
So despite what the Jalopnik morons on here would have you believe, both the older Rogue and the 2nd gen are pretty decent vehicles for the money. I'd certainly take one over a Mazda CX5 for the better ride alone.
Geez. Well not the end of the world, but that's far from ideal for a typical female CUV driver. Probably the least refined and least efficient vehicle of the bunch, not to mention thirstiest by a mile.
BUT, these are impressively capable offroad, more so than all other competing crossovers. Not that it matters to your mom one bit.
>>14221266 She liked the way it 'felt' better and the controls were simple so w/e. They do live in a rural area with plenty of hills, bumpy dirt roads and wet, muddy winters tho. As long as its reliable for long road trips and can haul lots of stuff she'll be happy.
>>14217512 Terrible, awful, ugly, slow, unreliable, poor handling, annoying CVT drone, etc. My mom has one and it's the worst car ever, I can't wait until she wises up and gets rid of that turd, wish she would while it has any resale value left. It's even fucking brown.
