    2008 Nissan Rogue SLReview

    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

    2008 Nissan Rogue SL AWDReview

    Good On Gas And Big Enough — I just got this car and I like it. The SL AWD has the premium package with includes HID headlights, a BOSE 6 disc stereo, roof rack, 17 inch wheels, bluetooth, and paddle shifters. I paid 23 grand.

    Pros: roomy, economical, sporty

    Cons: no leather option, no nav option

    2008 Nissan Rogue S AWDReview

    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
