The contact owns a 2008 Nissan Rogue. The contact stated that while driving 35 mph, the brakes failed without any warning light illumination. The contact had to pull the emergency brake to stop the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to a dealer for diagnosis and the contact was informed that the transmission, fuel gauge, and master cylinder all needed to be repaired. The contact was also informed of an electrical failure with the air bags. The vehicle had not been repaired. The manufacturer was notified, but offered no assistance. The failure and current mileages were 33,000.

On Dec 12, 2011 at 0500 am my 2009 2008 Nissan Rogue had a keyless entry rollaway. The car was turned off and rolled away causing car and property damage (damage to the car door) after turning off my engine I left the car, leaving the car door open and the car rolled away. I believe that this is a major design flaw of keyless entry cars and that it is the responsibility of both the ntsb and Nissan to personally notify people of this major design flaw and to provide corrective action to avoid repeated accidents. Some sort of "fix" such as an automatic lock should prevent the vehicle from leaving rolling away when the car engine is turned off. In reviewing the info available from ntsb I noted that this is a design flaw that has been noted in similar cases involving rollaway accidents and that both industry has not taken corrective action.

The contact owns a 2008 Nissan Rogue. The contact stated that the tire pressure and air bag warning lights were illuminated. The contact attempted to repair the vehicle but the failure recurred. The manufacturer was contacted, but denied any assistance with repairs to the defect. The vehicle had experienced similar symptoms as the recall associated with NHTSA campaign id number: 09V393000 ( tires:pressure monitoring and regulating systems), but the VIN was not included in the recall. A local mechanic diagnosed that there was a tire pressure sensor defect. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 30,000 and the current mileage was 50,000.

Rogue 4-cyl

Recently I have noticed that when I fill up my 2008 Nissan Rogue that the gas gauge does not read full. Contacting 2 dealers I was told there is no issue they know of. Upon checking on the internet I find there are many complaints, in all year Rogues, and a couple other Nissan models. Nissan has to know about it. Some say theirs stay 1/4 of a tank down, while the majority say an 1/8 of a tank. This false reading could result in people being stranded in desolate places, thereby threatening ones health; or an entire family's health, I know a gentleman who bought a 2011, has less than 5,000 miles on it, and his already has the same issue. This has to be a Nissan issue, as I see on no other auto makes on line. Do you have any data on this? thank you.

Cold day in nyc. The 2008 Nissan Rogue driver's side door fails to open. At first I used the keyless entry system. Then I tried to use the key and it will still not open. I had to go around the passenger side to get into the driver's seat. This is a safety issue especially at nights and dimlit areas. I had this problem before on the passenger side and took it to the dealer. They charged me $250 to fix problem even though this new model is supposed to be under warranty. Nissan needs to address this issue. I will never purchase a Nissan again.

My wife and I leased a 2008 Nissan rouge two years ago. An issue has since transpired. In October of 2009 we noticed that the passenger airbag light occasionally goes on regardless of the size of the person sitting there. This light indicates that the airbag is off. We took it to Nissan and they could not duplicate the problem. Over this last year the issue continues to arise. I decided to take the vehicle in this past Monday with a routine check. Prior to my dropping the vehicle off I decided to record it on my phone as we were driving seeing as though I could not bring the car to the dealership as soon as it was happening. After the car was there for a few hours, I got a call back saying that there is nothing wrong with the car and they are ready to release. I am still not comfortable driving the vehicle so I left it there and call customer affairs. Finally after 4 days, they returned my call. They indicated that they spoke to the shop and are not authorizing any repairs or paying for the rental vehicle as they could not duplicate the problem. They are refusing to fix this issue and are saying that my 125 lb wife may be too light to activate the bag sensor.
