If you know the trim package of it check out Edmunds for specifications. That should help you find out if that package is AWD or FWD.


Have you considered a Subaru Outback with symmetrical all wheel drive. Subaru is the leader in this technology and has been making all wheel drive cars since 1972. Check out the above mentioned Web page and you'll be impressed.


Boricua811 - You might as well do yourself a favor by taking a test drive in the Subaru Outback before you purchase the Nissan. You're either going to like one or the other, but, it will confirm the decision for you. One of the advantages of the Subaru is the boxer engine and low center of gravity making the Outback handling very crisp. I'm sure that the Nissan is very nice, but, Subaru has been perfecting the AWD system for more than 40 years. Even you would have to admit that that's a long time by any standard. Also, Subaru Outback 2.5 has their Subaru Lineartronic CVT transmission which is considered one of the best continously variable transmissions on the market today. I have a 2010 Subaru Outback 2.5 Limited and love my car. Good luck, maybe you can get the dealers into a bidding war for your purchase.


I hope you bought your Rogue? I love mine. I bought mine back in 2009 and still have it. I love it. The ride is smooth. I maintain my Rogue regularly with oil changes & filters. I bought new tires last year and this winter purchase winter tires. There was a difference in the drive,but felt safer. To answer your question the AWD will say on the back hatch and if it doesnt then it's not all wheel drive. Hope you enjoy your Rogue like I do! Oh by the way I drive all over the city on a daily basics and to the country for family members twice weekly or more! There is only two things I would change heated mirrors and adjustable emitted wipers then it would be perfect! ps gas isn't bad either it's more than a small car,but not as bad as any other suv or truck! enjoy


No interval wipers, that's peculiar, that feature has been on cars for a really long time and normally a standard feature. Heated mirrors are usually available as an option, you could have ordered them, Unless you live in Southern California where you really don't need them, lol.


Do we have a Subaru dealer here??


Where do you live? Yes, there are Subaru dealers in Socal.
