It's My Wife's. I Drive It Only On Long Trips. — Intuitive all-wheel drive engages at start-up, on turns, and in the rain and snow. At all other times the Rogue is front-wheel drive, using many fewer drivetrain parts, extending powertrain life and improving gas mileage. This vehicle sticks to the road like glue.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Handling! CVT! Road ride!

Cons: Sliding off the road in the rain is your idea of fun

Great Buy — I traded in my 2 door car for this four door SUV. I love the overall size the Rogue brings. When we moved into our new house we were amazed at the amount stuff we could fit in one trip.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: the size

Cons: lack of accessories

Decent But Better Than Expect Car. — Better CUV that i thought it would be. Interior has tight fitted plastics but work well. CVT and engine work well, but it is quite noisy. A decent cargo hauler and plenty of space in the interior for five. Exterior design is nothing spectacular.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Affordable, roomy, decent cargo space

Cons: Noisy, and a bit slow.

Rogue Style — Great gas mileage out of the 4 cylinder, but due to some tuning and its 175 HP output, you still have plenty of power on demand. CVT makes for a smooth comfortable ride in Overdrive, if you disable overdrive the transmission kicks up about1500 RPM for great engine braking or more passing power. The AWD is very smart and even when I start to slide I feel full control.Appearance is great, size is perfect, do not get the BOSE stereo unless you are over 50. Good looking vehicle inside and out, easy locations for accessories/controls, and a great safety rating.

Pros: Almost everything

Cons: almost nothing

All Rogued Out.. — Not a bad car, when you haven't owned an Acra first. I wish there was an available v6, but the 4cyl keeps mileage around the 30 mpg range. Maintenance ahs been minimal, but it handles better than other SUVs/crossovers that I have driven---but it needs the 6cyl and more little features (remote start, remote window down)

Pros: Space, price, gas mileage

Cons: acceleration, lack of convenience features

My Nissan Rogue S Awd — I have had it for a week. Its actually a little cheaper on gas than my blaxima, and you don't have to fill it up with premium fuel which is a little easier on the wallet.

Pros: Smooth ride, low road noise on the highway, supportive seats. For a base model, the stock radio sounds really good.

Cons: No standard MP3 player.

Sexy For Guys And Gals! — Looks beautiful, like a high-class SUV, but a little smaller. The ride is nice, but acceleration is a little slow. Luckily it has a toggle shift so I can take over! It's fun to drive, and it has a nice Bose sound system, XM Radio, sunroof, comfortable seats. It's average on mileage, about 21/gal. The rear window is a little hard to see out of, but I'm used to it because my Toyota Matrix was the same. Wanna go for a ride?

Pros: appearance, mpg, fun to drive, handling

Cons: cargo space, view out of rear window

Great Car With Quirky Packages —

Nissan has a decent mini SUV that could have been a serious competition to the leader in this segment-RAV 4. However few quirky little things will persuade many buyers to look elsewhere. For example, there is no manual transmission or a standard automatic transmission available. Not everyone likes the CVT. The bundled packages border on absurdity. You cannot get leather with 2WD and you cannot get HID lights with 2WD. Yet you can get sunroof without any premium package. You cannot have the keyless and homelink with 2WD premium package. If you add aluminum kick plates or mud flaps to the SL package it will downgrade you to the S package!This reminds me of the strategy Dodge and Plymouth dealers used to do a few years before they went down the tube and I don't know whether Nissan is heading that way. It sounds like they are trying to jack up their price by forcing customers to buy options they dont really want. Keeping inventories to low level may boost the price slightly but Nissan is crazy to think that any of their vehicles command a premium price above the sticker. Rogue is an okay vehicle.Exterior Looks decent (Looks like a Hyundai from the rear and side) and the interior is one of the best.Performance is so so and the engine is noisy on acceleration. Handling is pretty good.gas mileage is good but not a class leader. Reliability is not known as this vehicle is in its first year but based on other similar vehicles Nissan has produced recently, it should be better than average. How does it compare to other vehicles? The RAV 4 sport or the limited V6 leaves the Rogue in the dust in every way including performance, quiet interior, fun to drive, power to weight ratio and resale value. Honda CRV has better looks and resale value with less fun to drive factor than the RAV4 or the Rogue. I would seriouly recommend test driving them back to back before making a decision.My message to Nissan- Get your act together with options and packages. If not you will be driving your loyal customers away

Pros: Manageable dimensions
+ Standard side curtain airbags
+ Standard stability system

Cons: No manual transmission
- No navigation system
