Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2009 Nissan Rogue Owner Comments

The vehicle would not move when accelerating. This was the first time and since then it has happened on multiple occasions. The check engine light has not been on at all it randomly occurs. It seems that it would be an extremely hazardous situation for a vehicle to hesitate in regards to acceleration. It is anywhere from a 2-10 second delay. I have just learned that this is a common problem among many owners of the Nissan Rogue and it needs to be addressed immediately before someone is injured or worse dead. I am scheduling an appointment to address the issue but when I am making a left turn into traffic and I'm met with vehicles coming towards me as my vehicle hesitates to accelerate I would definitely consider this a life threatening issue for both me and my family.

Driving down the highway, my 2009 Nissan Rogue began overheating. Had the vehicle towed to my mechanic where he found coolant in the spark plugs so replaced all plugs and checked the radiator. When I went to pick up the vehicle, it wouldn't start. He checked it over again and said that it had a blown head gasket. Unfortunately, the power train warranty was only good for 5 yrs/60,000 miles. I was 6,000 miles over the limit. When Nissan was contacted to see if there was a recall for this problem, I was told there was no recall for the power train. When I asked them if they had noticed a high incidence of power train problems being reported, I was told "well, yes and no." Huh?

2009 Nissan Rogue stalled while driving at 35mph on a Friday afternoon with no signs of incidents beforehand tried to restart a least 10 times car would start run for a few seconds and stall. Had car towed to Nissan dealer, where it was checked Monday morning Nissan service could find nothing wrong and there were no codes stored so was returned to me with no work done except road test.. I feel this is a very dangerous problem, and am fairly sure will happen again. Cars do not just stall with out there being some type of problem... dangerous situation...

Rogue 4-cyl

  • 1,910 miles
The contact owned a 2009 Nissan Rogue. While driving under 40 mph, there were unusual rumbling and vibrating sounds coming from the engine area. The dealer was unable to duplicate the failure. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer three times. The failure persisted and the vehicle was traded in. The failure mileage was 1,910. Updated 8/24/10 Nissan advised there were no problems with the vehicle from August 2009 to November 2009. Then in December 2009 a recall notice from Nissan was issued for the very same problem she was complaining about. The consumer had already traded the vehicle. Updated 08/26/10 the consumer stated she received a second recall notice that stated Nissan was conducting a voluntary service campaign on certain Rogue vehicles to reduce a rattling noise that may be coming from the transmission at low speeds.
