Failure Date: 07/11/2014

The transmission died on my 2008 Nissan Rogue. After purchasing the vehicle in Jun 2008, we heard "whiring" noises. The vehicle was taken to the dealership of purchase and we have the notation that customer complained of whiring. Result was there were no issues. Car has continued to whine through the years, in the past year, it became worse. We took it to our mechanic to be evaluated, and immediately he knew the problem- the cvt transmission. The mechanic did some research and found that Nissan had extended the warranty, very quietly. Since I drive 70+ miles to/from work, my car was already over the warranty limit. Hence, left with 2 options, replacement via a Nissan dealership costing $5,ooo as no viable mechanic will touch the problem. Or get rid of the car. This type of repair was not in our budget nor were we in a position to purchase a new vehicle ( this one was paid for). There was no guarantee when the transmission would go out, other than it evenutally would. Lately, the noise had become much worse and we feared the worst. Thank goodness, the car died in our driveway and not the highway. Nissan knew this was a problem, apparently from the beginning, and is not accepting responsibility.

Problem in July 2012- at a stop light , went to accelerate, and nothing,, kept pushing gas pedal,, took out of drive and put back in , finally went. , kept doing this at unexpected times. No service light went on. Took to dealership, $600. 00, later, they said it was my acceleration cable, and replaced it. . Stated transmission had nothing to do with it. . Still not running well, still makes whining noise - March 2013 started doing same thing with acceleration. , almost got killed taking a left hand turn and no acceleration. Making high pitch noise @ 50-60 miles. Took to dealership -said it was my transmission fluid, it was overfilled and bad color?. $ 200 to change fluid, still not agreeing to change out transmission. I looked on line , a ton of complaints on same issues. . All resulting in the cvt- how do I get the dealership to fix problem?.

Failure Date: 04/08/2010

I purchased a 2008 Nissan Rogue sl awd in 2008. I began hearing a noise emanating from the front end of the vehicle at approximately 6000 miles. The noise occurs consistently when decelerating from about 40 mph to 5 mph. As the vehicle begins to decelerate, the noise sounds like a rattling against metal. The noise changes to a grinding sound like metal rubbing against metal as the vehicle loses speed. The grinding sound appears more pronounced when at a slow speed, such as when turning into a parking lot. Service manager acknowledges the noise but has no explanation for it and say Nissan is aware of the issue and has a fix for it, so I took it in for the factory fix and have noticed the noise is still there. I believe the noise comes from the cvt transmission, and it is probably caused by a defective cvt belt or the cvt belt slipping on the variable pulleys. Either cause could lead to catastrophic failure of the cvt belt and result in an immediate and total loss of response to driver accelerator input. My Nissan Rogue currently has approximately 17000 miles, and the noise is becoming more evident.

Failure Date: 05/28/2009

I purchased a new 2008 Nissan rouge in March of 2008. My first road trip was in may of 2009. While driving on the highway I lost power (very dangerous). I took the overdrive off, put petal to floor, pulled over to side of the road nothing helped. I went to dealership for a noise I heard also on trip, motor mounts were loose but noise did not change. Ay that time I let them know about loss of power. Thinking it was just a fluke because around town I didn't have trouble with power. Went on another road trip and it did the same thing. Specialist supposedly flew in told me it was because the transmission fluid was a tiny bit to high. I told them I bought it off the showroom floor, after blinking of eyes they still claimed that was the reason. This year next road trip and it did the same thing at 4 different times. . . Very scary!!! it seems to be getting worse. My son took it to airport to pck friends up, it happened a hour and a half from home. Then recurred in 5 lanes of city interstate traffic. He was so close to getting hit by the grace of god he didn't. I took it to the city 2 weeks ago and it did the same to me. It is so scary to be going along at 65 mph in 5 lanes of bumper traffic and loose power. Now I am making payments on a car that I could not even trust to drive my kid back to college this year. I have been to the dealership and I have been on the phone with headquarters of Nissan for over a month now and I am not getting no where. Looking on this website it looks like there are lots of issues with this car. . . How many accidents or deaths need to happen before they stand behind there product. Would love any feed back on who I need to speak to next! thank you.

I purchased a new Nissan Rogue and within 3500 miles it began to make noise. Second visit to mechanic at about 8000 miles confirmed that car needed a new transmission. After 3500 miles on the new new transmission, noise returned and Nissan has authorized a second replacement transmission.

Failure Date: 10/09/2008

I purchased a 2008 Nissan Rogue sl awd in November 2008. I began hearing a noise emanating from the front end of the vehicle at approximately 3000 miles. The noise occurs consistently when decelerating from about 20 mph to 5 mph. As the vehicle begins to decelerate, the noise sounds like a bicycle chain rattling against metal. The noise changes to a grinding sound like metal rubbing against metal as the vehicle loses speed. The grinding sound appears more pronounced when making a left turn at slow speed, such as when turning into a parking lot. Service manager acknowledges the noise but has no explanation for it and no interest in trying to resolve it. I believe the noise comes from the cvt transmission, and it is probably caused by a defective cvt push belt or a cvt push belt slipping on the variator pulleys. Either cause could lead to catastrophic failure of the cvt push belt and result in an immediate and total loss of response to driver accelerator input. My Nissan Rogue currently has approximately 7000 miles, and the noise is becoming more evident.

Failure Date: 06/10/2008

I purchased a new 2008 Nissan Rogue sl awd in March of 08. It has 3100 miles on it. About a month ago I started hearing a rattle coming from what sounded like under the front of the car. I brought it into the dealer, they stated they could not hear anything on the test drive. As days went by the noise got louder. I brought it back again, this time I went with the tech. He heard it. After hours of looking at the car they decided, they needed to keep the car for a day or two to diagnose the issue. I got a rental and they had it for a day and a half. I started reading up on this on Rogue forums and the are 100's over people having this same problem. Svc mgr told me the problem was a problem with the transmission tnat Nissan USA was aware of, and they were going to replace it. They thought the car was safe to drive since there had not been reported failures. So, they gave me the car back while I waited for the new tranny. A week later after not hearing from the dealer, I called and was told, as it turns out they were not going to replace the tranny because it has been done in other Rogues and not fixed the issue. He stated, there is no fix, but Nissan is working on the problem. When I voiced my concerns over the possibility of a failure on a highway at high speeds, he said. . Well there haven't been any yet!! as I stated there are many many Rogue owners with this problem. Something has to be done to force Nissans hand. Please help before there is a failure and someone is seriously injured or even killed.

I have a transmission rattle/clanking noise which is fairly constant in the car, except at high acceleration. I have complained numerous times to Nissan about the problem, but Nissan is currently considering this sound normal. It has been getting worse, and I am concerned about a transmission failure, which could cause an accident.

Failure Date: 05/26/2008

Issues since may 2008. Purchased new 08 Nissan Rogue sl awd. Have had transmission problems including, lunging forward, rattling noises, jerking acceleration, and vibration on acceleration. Continuous problems started under 35mph and now are present at highway speeds. Nissan claims its might be normal and that there may be no solution to a problem they cant figure out. Additionally they say it will not cause harm, however, if they do not know what it is, how can they say that?.

Issues since 5/5/8 just after purchasing new 08 Nissan Rogue sl awd transmission failure/lunging forward, rattling noises, missing during acceleration, and sever vibration on acceleration. Continuous problems under 35mph. Nissan claims its normal and will not replace transmission until it completely fails.

Failure Date: 04/15/2008

Shortly after purchasing a 2008 Nissan Rogue sl awd, I began experiencing a grinding, rattling noise coming from which I now know is the cvt transmission. Started at less than 3000 miles, very faint and inconsistent but becoming much louder, more consistent and unmistakable. After the third trip to my dealer about this noise and several other issues I am having with my 5 month old vehicle including a major water leak, they finally got on the phone to Nissan USA. The service manager advised me that Nissan is aware of this transmission "issue", they are working on a fix, there have been many transmissions replaced but that is not correcting the problem. I was told to sit tight and wait for Nissan to come up with a resolution. I was told that the vehicle is safe to drive because there have been no reported failures from this issue. My problem is, which Rogue owner with this problem (and it seems like there are many) is going to be the first one to have a transmission failure at highway speeds? I currently have less than 5,000 miles on my Rogue and don't trust it.

This an e-mail to the Nissan motor corp reference 6261634 I was just recently contacted by one of your tech representatives for my area in response to my inquiry about my 2008 Nissan Rogue cvt transmission noise. It appears that your fix for this problem is to replace the transmission. This seems odd, has there is no guarantee that the next transmission will not have the same rumbling cvt noise. Also this is a new car and you dont expect to have the transmission replaced after a few months of ownership. In fact checking with the blog page of the nico club, this seems to be a problem with many Nissan Rogue owners. I have called my local Nissan dealers and found that all them are having similar complaints from some of their Rogue owners. Ramsy Nissan has had four complaints, rockland Nissan seven complaints, white plains Nissan three complaints, obrien Nissan two complaints and route 23 Nissan has had five complaints. What is also interesting is all of these dealers have the same answer to fixing the problem and that is, Nissan is a where of the problem and they are waiting for a software fix. It appears to me that Nissan sold the vehicle with a known design flaw with the Rogues cvt transmission. I wait for your reply and resolution to my complaint.
