Rogue SL 2L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 126,000 miles


In July 2022, while waiting to stop at a red light, the car shook and caused the engine to stall. On July 13, 2022, the CVT gearbox oil was replaced and it was slightly better. March 27, 2023 The CVT transmission of my vehicle has completely failed and is no longer drivable

Rogue SL 2.5L

  • CVT transmission
  • 180,000 miles

This is the 2nd transmission. The first was partially paid by Nissan at 108,000 miles. so at less than 80,000 miles it goes again. then I get a letter stating that Nissan has decided to cover up to 80,000 miles on their transmissions but only the first one not any replacements, after numerous conversations with them and the dealer. Our 1st Rogue a 2008 we had 248,000 miles with no transmission issues. So the vehicle has been sitting since May. sigh

Rogue LX Awd

  • Automatic transmission
  • 28,000 miles

Took the dealership over a month to repair, the car stopped shifting and would all of a sudden lunge forward. I was coming back from upstate with kids in the car. This could have turned out VERY badly. The car was brought to the dealership prior for a clunky trans, they said there was no issue - until there was NO Trans.

Rogue SL AWD 2.5L Dohc

  • CVT transmission
  • 68,845 miles


The CVT transmission on our Rogue failed at 110,793 kilometers. The dealership charged full labour rate to fix it, and Nissan Canada offered only a token amount in goodwill. The cost of the repair is exorbitant and they even charged me the $2.50 eco fee. I am going to sue Nissan Canada. I want to put one of their people on the stand and get him or her to admit that their transmissions are only good for 110,000 kms. The law says they have to be fit for the use intended. Transmissions on vehicles are designed to last at least 200,000 kms, and much more. This transmission, like so many other CVT transmissions, was defective. Nissan Canada was imperious in its rejection of any substantive aid. They should have stood behind their product that was only 10,000 kms, out of warranty.

I will never buy another Nissan product ever again. Not only is this product defective, but Nissan refuses to stand by their product. That's all I need to know about this Japanese company.

Rogue SL 2.5L

  • CVT transmission
  • 108,000 miles

This is our 2nd Rogue. First one an 08 with 250k on it with barely any issues. Traded it for the 14 Rogue with 12k on it. Even bought an extended 100k warranty that evidently ended at 100k and of course at 108k the transmission fails. Nissan dealer says they rarely see anyone with this issue! Really!? Waiting to see what Nissan will call good faith or something for replacement.

Rogue SL

  • Automatic transmission
  • 115,000 miles

There was no precursors or warnings that the transmission was going out. It simply started to feel like I was running out of gas and the car was sputtering. Luckily I was able to pull over to a parking lot. I tried to drive the car, but it was shaking a lot. I parked the car, turned the car off, and then back on. At that point, putting it into any gear was like putting it into neutral. The car had to be towed and the dealership said that it could not be rebuilt or repaired; that something broke loose inside and tore up the entire transmission. The only fix was to spend almost $4200 to completely replace the transmission. The dealership offers a 3 year or 60k mile warranty on the transmission and has provided a rental car while the car is being fixed.

Rogue Select 4 cyl

  • CVT transmission
  • 97,000 miles


I have a 2005 Mitsubishi Outlander with well over 260,000 miles, spark plugs, timing belt, couple batteries. Other than that, no major problems. Pontiac Aztec 2004 same thing. Both cars running daily. The 2014 Nissan Rogue with 4 cylinder and cvt transmission died at 97,000 miles. I brought this car new for my retirement. I'm on social security checks and I have no money to cover the $3,000.00 bill to fix. I will never buy Nissan products again. With a lot of life left in the car, it now sit in the front yard as a pretty ornament. Pretty, but useless!

Update from Jun 7, 2018: It was $117.00 dollars to hook to dealer computer. Says defect valve body and oil cooler. They computer printed out a statement showing $3,000.00 bill. Dealer wanted $1700.00 for a oil cooler replacement! Did you ever seen the oil cooler? Sits on side of motor ,about the size of an oil filter cansiter,it is water cooled from the raditor. Go to you Tube,some are adding an oil cooler,the old fin type, in front of the raditor. My theory is the steel belt in the cvt transmission is whipping up tremdomous heat, there destorying internal parts in the transmission.It is a design flaw . After all.why would they want to replace/add an oil cooler for $1700.00?. We should call on the senate/congress to make Nissian company buy back their defect product at FULL price.

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles

The same thing happened to our 2013 a year later with 75000 miles on it. 100% of the Nissan Rogues that we own (2) have had the exact same transmission failure about 10,000 mileage difference in the two cars mileages. Both times we were miles from home and had to abandon the cars at dealerships, get a rental, and come back a week later to pick them up! Very inconvenient. This is not a coincidence, Nissan has a major issues with the Rogue transmission. If we hadn't purchased extended warranties we would have been out a fortune! Won't replace these with another Nissan. ALWAYS BUY EXTENDED WARRANTY!

NISSAN TRANSMISSIONS?!! What can I say? A 2014 Rogue trans went out in 2016 and had to be replaced. Due to the fact it was a lease vehicle and the term was not fulfilled we chose to pay $3500 out of pocket for a new transmission. After a fight, Nissan gave us a $500 credit toward the work. Next we fixed the sunroof that had been broken for over a year at the cost of $1200. We are still driving this for the next few months.

A 2010 Nissan Murano with a lovely leather package? AC went out summer of 2017 and had to be replaced to the tune of several thousand. Regular maintenance struts, shocks and new tires all the way around ran into the thousands. Shortly thereafter, the transmission went out in the middle of a busy thoroughfare. Cost? About $4000 to replace. We are at the end of the lease term and at high miles (my fault but I loved driving this car) and decided to dump it back to the lease company at a loss of $8.

What a shock. I guess I only thought I was a responsible adult.

  • Automatic transmission
  • 82,000 miles

Car drove fine up until 2 weeks ago. I work 35 miles from home and after driving on freeway for 15 miles my Nissan starts to slow down to about 55 to 40 miles even with my foot all the way on the gas pedal. I have to stop and pull over and wait for about 5-10 minutes then car will drive about another 5-10 miles at a high speed of 60. I work night shifts so travel during the hottest time of the day. Coming home car will make it the 35 miles home BUT when exiting freeway from a dead stop car will take off very slow and then speed up real fast. I took car to transmission place and they had no clue, now I am at the Nissan dealer and have been told I need a CVT valve at a cost of 900.00 not including deductible of my extended warranty. I want to drive 500 miles in august to visit family. Never again.

Rogue S 2.5L I4

  • CVT transmission
  • 103,000 miles


Pretty disappointed. Car is not even 3 years old (purchased Sept 2014), and the CVT failed at 103000 miles. Seems like planned obsolescence. The car was serviced consistently at the dealer, had fresh transmission/CVT fluid when it failed, and isn't even paid off yet. We had to spend $5k at the dealer getting it replaced. I thought all new cars were reliable, but they're getting WORSE. Our 98 Camry lasted SIXTEEN YEARS, before we threw it away like idiots. Now we pay for our stupidity. We could have kept that car running 25 more years with the cost of this new car and transmission.

It's the expensive, time-consuming lessons that stick. Put money into that oldie but goodie, don't buy these new pieces of plastic they're churning out like disposable smartphones.

Update from Sep 26, 2017: After trying to open a case to see if I could get any sort of refund or something, Nissan said there is nothing they can do since the car had 103k at time of failure. This is the outcome I expected, but there you go. Keep this in mind if you buy Nissan.

Jan 202016


  • Automatic transmission
  • 25,000 miles

Our 2014 Nissan Rogue has 25000 miles. We bought it two years ago. The transmission failed and was replaced with a new one. I literally drove the car directly to the dealership and it died on the spot. It kept shaking and sputtering. They then said the struts were bad. How is that possible on a new car? The struts were then replaced and we still had shaking. The steering wheel became tighter and the front alignment went out of whack. We took it back, at which time, they said there was a recall on the fuel pump. So they replaced that. Now I have to take the car back again because it still has a strong vibration. Should this be happening to a new car with 25,000 miles on it? The dealership does not care and just says bring it back. The mechanics are trying but keep saying "no codes" even though you can feel the car is not right. I am only asking to have the car that I originally paid $26, 000 dollars for....is that too much to ask? Is Nissan just pumping out cars with no regard for the consumer. I should have bought a Ford!!
