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.

Transmission was replaced within 6 months of having the car. They also adjust idle speed within a month of having the car and also had issues with power sockets. Car makes rattle noise when accelerating and make less gas milage than average. They had reprogrammed the tcm already. They also changed the shifter. They had adjust both front brake backing plates. I won't recognize the smart key sometimes. They replaced one headlight already. It has several recalls.

There is a vibration noticeable in the floor, pedals and steering wheel at around 1250 engine RPM whenever the car speed is steady. It corresponds to about 45-50 mph when driving in eco mode. It happens while cruising at steady speeds on straight or curved roads. I have complained two or more times to the dealer and Nissan usa and the only reply I have received is that it is normal for that model. Other owners have reported this problem on internet forums. I am afraid this vibration will affect the long term reliability of this car.

Teering wheel vibrates at speeds 25-55 mph. Most of the vibration will stop if I drive in the sport mode. Have back to dealer three times, but no luck. They said other 2015 Rogue show the same problem, there is no tbs issued yet, so they basically don't know how to fix it. Two different dealers felt the vibrations. You can almost hear a like a harmonic noise when this happens. I have contacted Nissan and am waiting for a resolution or something. I asked Nissan to find a Rogue that doesn't vibrate or get out of my lease with my money back.

I was driving home from work one evening, and since the other vehicles were passing me on the freeway. I decided to change from "eco" mode to "sport" mode because the acceleration is more responsive and smooth. When I did this I hit 3 RPM's and traffic was slowing down so I applied the brakes and the needle just steadily shook at 3 RPM's and I could hear the engine revving and accelerating as I was pushing the breaks. So just to make sure I knew what I experienced was true I moved all the way to the left lane. Then proceeded to accelerate up to 3 RPM's and sure enough when I applied the brakes it continued to accelerate. I repeated this 4 more times. Then the RPM finally came back down. What I tried to explain to the service department is yes "sport" mode does keep RPM's high I like that that's the reason why I drive in that mode on the freeway. The issue is they're supposed to come down and not rev whenever I push the brakes. I don't know if this is exclusive to my vehicle or not. I just don't want to be in an accident due to the fact of a deteriorated faulty system in the vehicle.

The car revs up to 5 rpms at 60mph like its stuck in neutral. Need to take the foot off the gas get down to 50mph and was able to get it back up to 65mph. I did this in rush hour traffic. I was afraid the person behind was going to hit to change speeds so fast. Nissan looked at the car today and said there wasn't an issue and I needed to do that to let the transmission catch up. Never heard of such a thing. My last Nissan at 98K died because of the transmission. Before it died it was doing the same thing.
