2009 Nissan Rogue Owner Comments

We have stopped driving the vehicle in case of an accident & until we get a solution, in the past couple of days my Nissan Rogue started making terrible noises underneath the engine area, like metal on metal sounds. I had assumed maybe my cv boot needed replaced so I brought it to my mechanic and he brought to my attention today that the sub body frame bushings are completely gone on 2 spots. In my opinion that should've been should be a recall our warranty item which is extremely dangerous

Both front doors will not open from the outside after being exposed to freezing temperatures in our driveway overnight. Despite having only 44,000 miles on the odometer we were told by a Nissan rep that they would not repair the car. If we want the car fixed we were told by the Nissan dealer the cost would be about $700. Because the doors will not open from the outside it is a safety hazard in the event we were incapacitated inside the car, or a child were to get stuck inside the vehicle.

Rear bumper came unattached on I-24, 70mph zone, on right side. Nissan and auto dealer refused to repair or investigate due to expired warranty. Owned the vehicle for one year. No accidents (none reported on car fax) both are stating I am at fault for bumper coming apart. I did not hit anything nor has anyone hit me. ## VIN passed ## Nissan Rogue sl ##

The door handle on the driver side froze and won't open this is a safety recall but is only covered once and is a recurring problem for the 2009 cars. Driver side door won't open from the outside only the inside once it freezes it requires labor hours to tear apart the door to fix it.

During ice and snowy conditions the outside door handle mechanism fails not allowing you to open the door from the outside. It has happened 3 times on the drivers door and once on the passenger door. To fix the problem you have to take apart the door and re hook up a cable. There seems to be a VIN number recall for this but it doesn't include my Rogue. Took it to the dealer to have it fixed and they wanted to charge 600 dollars for their flawed mechanism on 1 side!!! major pain to have to open the door from the passenger side or reach over the seat to open the door from the inside. Seems to be a safety issue that Nissan should fix when they know it is an issue with other Nissan vehicles. Not happy with Nissan or their service. The last time it occurred was 12/18/2015. But it has happened the last 3 winters and I fixed it.

Rogue 4-cyl

I purchased the vehicle from a reputable used car dealer used. The vehicle seemed ok very nice interior exterior appearance. On the test drive the vehicle would not shift into second or third, the dealer agreed to pay for a transmission flush. The next day when I got I N the car to drive to the Nissan dealer to have the transmission service done, I noticed the vehicle being erratic, it felt like a tire out of round or a suspension issue. When I got to the dealer I noticed the brand new tires the dealer had installed were worn on the outside. So I had them check it out, the vehicle was out of alignment. Then I noticed the oil that had been put in the vehicle was wrong 10W20 instead of 10W30. While at the Nissan dealer they performed the recall on the harness in the door. They also noticed the tires low and performed and alignment. After the transmission flush and fill, they also did the ECM updates. I noticed the vehicle was still doing the same thing it would not shift into 2nd sometimes or third. The next day. The TPMS light came on again. Nissan needs to be held responsible for the lack of quality and repair these major problems that have been reported by numerous complaints. I am stuck with a lemon of a car, because my finance company would not allow me to buy what I wanted, I have to pay for this vehicle for 6 years, and I am afraid I got stuck. Buyers need to be made aware of this low quality vehicle and the manufacturers lack of regard for complaints. 70000 miles is nothing for a vehicle today, but at the high cost of repair and replacement this is unacceptable.

Under the cold weather, both of the front doors couldn't open from outside since the linkage of the door lock frozen and the cable was detached. The problem was fixed under a recall, however, it is now happening again in Dec 2014. It is a big safety issue if you have to open doors from the back to get access.

Defective door handle/locking assembly. Both front doors handle assembly froze up preventing me from opening both doors. It cost me $480 for the repairs to both doors. In the mean time my wife had climb from the back seat to ppt he door from the inside. Even though the car was out warranty and Nissan did pay for the cost of the parts, I feel this should have been covered as a safety recall. Nissan says there no way to prevent it from happening again. I am very disappointed in Nissan and most likely will not purchase another vehicle from them in the future.

My 2009 Nissan passenger door will not open from outside, also driver door is the same, have to climb into back seat to open up. Took to fussillo Nissan in NY. Tech said door cable was frozen and broke from handle. I see this is a major issue with all lot of people with this vehicle. Service manager admitted that this is a huge issue for everyone with this vehicle. This is not covered and the job was going to cost me almost $600. What is Nissan doing about this"?"
