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.

2013 Nissan Rogue Owner Comments

When driving uphill the vehicle almost stalls and acts like it is not getting fuel, it slows dramatically and takes awhile to recover power. I cannot accelerate. If there is a vehicle behind me, it gets very close, very fast. This happens on regular black top roads and dirt roads.this vehicle also pops out of gear while driving on rough dirt roads and uphill (I live on a dirt road). This is not "off road driving." Both of these problems are ongoing since I got this vehicle. At first I thought it was because it was new. Then I thought I was driving incorrectly. Now I know it is just the way the vehicle is. I feel very unsafe in this vehicle.

Traveling out of town on highway. Speed of 75mph. About an hour into travel, power started to decrease, pressing the gas pedal had no effect. Losing power had to pull off to side. Almost had an accident, trying to avid being hit by ohter autos on highway. When I tried to pull back on road, there was no power a snail crawl, then in seconds it charged in to gear. Heard a high pitch whinning noise. Shortly after. It occurred again with in 24 hours, I called the dealership I bought my car from. Then started my own investigation, and found this site. I am in shock how many others are having this same issue. Nissan really put out a poor product, and they better correct. Also when car was purchase with 250 miles est. Gas per gallon ws suppose to be 28 higway- 22 in town.. I have never been able to get more then 20 mpg out of my auto. I have also seen a lot of complaints about this.

This 2013 Nissan Rogue lost acceleration completely when on a slight hill/incline. Speed went from 60mph to 30mph in seconds, nearly causing a collision with a big rig truck on my side and a large vehicle coming up behind. The gas pedal was completely to the floor with no result in acceleration. When able to come to a complete stop, I had to power down vehicle completely. I opened the hood (hoping to cool the potentially hot engine to resolve) and restart. I had to restart a couple times to get the car to recognize being in "gear." There was no warning, no service engine light, nothing. The vehicle is current on oil changes, etc. This issue could have caused bodily harm or injury had I not been able to safely get to the side of the road, especially since we were on a hill and everyone is trying to maintain momentum behind me on a two lane road. This is clearly a safety concern. Since that issue, the vehicle has now done it approximately 6 more times.

The date and speed entered are averages, because of multiple events at various times and circumstances. I seldom know how much gas I have because the gauge goes up and down without explanation. Since I don't drive a lot I can just keep track of the amount I put in the tank and fill up when I think I should. Today as an example, my gauge showed 1/2 tank. I sat in a parking lot with the engine running while waiting for a friend to finish an errand. During that 10 minutes, the gas gauge went up by about 1/8 of a tank. This was sitting on level ground in a plaza parking lot, so no slant to the tank to give a false reading. So far I have had no serious issues, but due to the fact that I am on oxygen, I could be in serious trouble if I had to wait a long time for help.

The fuel guage is jumping around. I have read dozens and dozens of issues with this same thing without any real resolution.
