2016 Nissan Rogue Overview

Data provided by Edmunds

The 2016 Nissan Rogue offers a number of strong points, including available seating for seven passengers, an upscale interior and a smooth ride. Unfortunately, it's hamstrung by an underwhelming powertrain and a suspension that produces lackluster handling. Still, the 2016 Nissan Rogue may be worth considering if you're looking for family-friendly transportation on a budget.

In an increasingly crowded compact crossover segment, the 2016 Nissan Rogue is a family-oriented model that certainly has some likable aspects. Most notable, perhaps, is its ability to seat up to seven passengers with the available third-row seat, which is quite uncommon among compact models. Upscale interior materials and design give the cabin a classy vibe, while available features like keyless entry and ignition and a surround-view camera system strike an upscale, high-tech chord. The interior also has a practical side, with up to 70 cubic feet of cargo room with the rear seatbacks folded down, a number that bests a number of competitors. The 2016 Nissan Rogue is one of the roomier models in the compact crossover segment. The Rogue also has its share of downsides, though. If you're just looking for a value-rich crossover with a smooth ride, this Nissan is bound to satisfy. But if you want any degree of driver engagement, you won't find it here. That's partly why the Rogue fell to a "C" rating in our evaluation: Its mandatory four-cylinder engine provides loud but otherwise forgettable acceleration, its continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) is relatively unresponsive, and its handling, while safe and secure, isn't the least bit engaging. Even putting performance-related concerns aside, the Rogue's rearward visibility is poor, and we've found its lofty EPA fuel economy ratings hard to replicate in real-world driving. Accordingly, we suggest checking out some of the Rogue's competitors before making up your mind. The Mazda CX-5, for example, offers the fun-to-drive personality that the Rogue lacks, while the Honda CR-V is superior for all-around competence. For stronger acceleration, the Subaru Forester, fitted with its optional turbocharged engine, would be a better way to go, as would a V6-equipped Jeep Cherokee. If a reasonably sized three-row crossover is what you want, the Kia Sorento is a great choice, albeit a little more expensive one. Overall, the 2016 Nissan Rogue doesn't do much to stand out among this group, but it's still worth a look if space and comfort are priorities.

With its comfortable ride and roomy interior, the 2016 Nissan Rogue is a pleasant enough small crossover SUV. But subpar performance holds it back from being a truly desirable choice.

The SL trim adds an emergency telematics system called NissanConnect Services, while other newly available features include Siri Eyes Free and an enhanced collision mitigation system with automatic braking. Also, an Appearance package for the base S trim dresses up the exterior a bit.

A great car from a Honda

Got this 2016 Nissan Rogue SL last year for Christmas. I totally enjoy it and it is going to my car soon since I will be getting my license soon. The cargo space is spacious, especially the Divide and Hide system that is only on the Rogue. The seats are really comfortable and the car overall is easy to use. Few issues that I have about the car is: noisy tranny, really slow (compared to a 1999 Honda Accord 2.3l V4 150hp), navigation system freezes or doesn't work at all once in a while, recently the car wouldn't recognize the key even though it is in the vehicle, really huge a-pillars, not that many choices for audio and entertainment system. Few things that I like that other companies doesn't offer (ex.: Honda): Surround View 360 degree montior system, a volume and tune nob, Bose audio system, the divide and hide system. I really wish Nissan would increase the number of audio apps that it would support and would like to fix up the navigation issue.

Unbelievable customer service and pricing!!!

I had a great experience at Fontana Nissan. The sales representative Mikhail was very knowledgeable and very understanding of my needs. I previously owned a Mercedes Benz, and using my vehicle only for daily driving, I decided to downsize. Mikhail presented the vehicle to me like I was still in my Mercedes, and felt very comfortable with my purchase. I have never experienced such a positive environment at a dealership before, from the salesman to the managers. The car was perfect for what I needed it for, and had all the options and features that I was looking for in a daily driver. Many thanks again to Mikhail and Fontana Nissan for such a great time, and great deal. I will truly recommend all my family and friends to this dealership!!

Rogueish quality review

This car is packed with new concepts in safety , performance, and hospitality details. They are hard to get used to, and with some lifestyles, maybe not required. If you like "simple", consider lesser equipped vehicles and save money.

So glad That I traded it in at 3900 miles

2016 Nissan Rogue SL AWD with Premium package.Huge mistake buying this car. Trouble from get go. Struts and suspension were bad from two weeks into it. Had to drive 6 hours RT twice through sleet and snow to get it fixed. Bad paint job...the traveling really messed it up. They replaced front struts and springs, which did work but who is to know if the problem would come back. Told me that the factories buy the parts from different companies and some are bad and some good. They left grease and some kind of oil all over front end and doors. When I took it to be detailed, they thought that it was a used car. By the time that it was fixed, I was so tired of the blah drive and cheap materials used to build the car inside and out, that I finally traded it in for a Mazda CX-5 GT with tech and activesense. Painful, but worth it. No comparison in performance and quality and appearance. The Nissan forward emergency brakes are a joke. I do very much miss the birds eye view camera and the power rear door, but everything else makes up for it. I do not like that Nissan wants you to pay for their Nissan Connect, when Mazda includes the features in the vehicle for the one time price of car. The Rogues cheap looking leather doesn't even wrap around the inner sides of the seat. The drivers seat made me limp every time I got out of the car. The lights are awful when you go downhill. The steering is awful. I could never relax on winding roads, instead of natural mindless steering on a decent vehicle. The Nissan actually had a difficult time going over the little bump to enter my garage....I had to very carefully gas it a little to enter. I am pretty sure that the MPG that the car showed on the screen were not true at all, because I was constantly filling it up, whereas the Mazda shows the same good mileage, but the tank remains fairly full for a long time. The Mazda gas tank holds less than a gallon more than the Nissan, but not enough to make such a considerable difference. Nissan needs to build better cars, instead of trying, unsuccessfully, to add fun frills. Imagine, it had to be a pretty bad experience to do such a drastic thing .... taking such a loss trading in a brand new vehicle.

A nice vehicle with a few flaws

The transmission leaves a lot to be desired. Under low power acceleration, it behaves likes a conventional CVT. But for some reason Nissan added shift points, so it has discrete "shifts", instead of hitting one RPM and letting the CVT do its thing. Goofy. Other than that, its a pretty cool ride.

Hopefully I didn't buy a lemon

My SUV had less than 1,000 miles, it started making a "popping sound" when turning at low speeds. I called dealership, they stated they were aware it is occurring with other 2016 Rogues. They stated the SUV was still safe to drive and to come back when it's time for first oil change since they were still working on solution to fix it. I now have 3,00 miles, and the sounds are VERY loud now. It is annoying. My car does not handle well either. I am calling the dealership back today. For buying a brand new car, I do not think this is acceptable. What else is going to break so soon? I'm getting 23 average mile per gallon, and this is on the highway too. I've been driving very carefully to see if the miles per gallon will get better, however, it doesn't. I've had others drive my car to see if it changes, and it doesn't. The center console, in my opinion, is centered too far back. It makes it difficult to get things in and out of it. The leather was already puckering up on the back seats within 2,000 miles. I think these were cheaply made. I'm sorry I bought this SUV. Also, do not rely on the navigation, as it's led me straight into horrible traffic, google maps is much better providing alternate routes.

Strange noises and factory reps no help

Bought new 6/2016. First couple thousand miles were great. My wife loved the Rogue. Then a chirp,chirp,chirp,chirp noise started at 63 mph especially when decelerating. No noise above 68. About 7800 miles now and noise is louder. Contacted dealer.(very good dealer) Road tested with their technician. He hears the noise. They replaced the front wheel bearings which they found to be noisy. NO CHANGE. Technician took new Rogue off of lot, drove, it had same noise as mine at same speeds.Gave me 1-800-nissan-1 number to call. Back and forth with friendly Nissan factory reps. They will investigate and get back. They did. One week goes by. Met with factory rep at dealer. Went for a ride in my car. Same noise. Went for ride in new Rogue off lot. Same noise. Rep says this is "inherent in the design of the car, cannot be fixed". I think this is a brush off by the factory for a known defect of this vehicle. Except for this the car rides and handles great and has a great interior. We will keep it a couple of years to ease up on the first year depreciation then trade for a Hyundai or Honda. NO MORE NISSAN. They (factory) know about this problem but it will take re-engineering to fix. Cheaper to stone wall the owners. There are low frequency vibes also but some four cylinder cars do that. These are slight and can be lived with. By comparison my other car is a Chrysler 300 (2010) which is the best car I have ever owned. What a disappointment.

Rogue Rip-Off

In January 2016 I traded in my 2008 Rogue on a brand new 2016 Rogue. My 2008 Rogue has 112,000 miles on it. It had just rolled over to 100,000 miles and the transmission had to be replaced. Luckily it was covered under warranty. Nissan was having so many problems with the transmissions they extended the warranty so I got lucky. 12,000 miles and 14 months later the transmission went out again and had to be replaced. Again, this was covered under warranty, however this transmission was only warranted for a year. I didn't want to take a risk so I decided to trade the car on a new Rogue. I was told how much better the new CVT transmission is than the old transmission. Well the 2016 Rogue that I have had for 11 months and has 12,700 miles on it is now having the transmission replaced. I went to the sales department because I want to trade the piece of junk and they will only give me $16,000 for it which is ridiculous. The fact that I was even willing to buy another Nissan should have shown my loyalty to them and you would think they would take that into consideration when considering my trade. I will never buy another Nissan and cannot wait until I can get rid of the one that I have. On a positive note the service department at the dealership that I go to is wonderful. The service advisors are great and they make sure I am taken care of with a loaner vehicle while my car is being worked on. It's disappointing that Nissan continues to put out a poor product. This was my third Nissan and will definitely be my last.

She's a rogue

I've had the car only a few weeks. I am enjoying driving it. This is personally my first SUV. However not the first one I have had experienced with. It is comfortable but not super peppy (which I obviously knew prior to my purchase). It isn't the most important thing to me, but I know it is with some people. The most disappointing thing about the car is that I had to bring it in. The repairs are under warranty and in no way were caused by me. But it is still annoying! And having to deal with the dealership is even more annoying. Many...not all....of the individuals I have come across there (mainly in the service department) are unprofessional. But that is all I will say about the dealership here, as this review is for the car.

Now I've had the car for about 7 months...and I still like it.

A little concerned

I bought my 2016 Rogue in September and due to a busy fall travel schedule managed to already put 4,700 miles on it. That said, there are a few issues that make me a bit concerned about the future. This is my first brand new car.The heater is making a sound much like the motor is dying (this happened to my previous vehicle, a 2001 Nissan Frontier, about a year ago!). Also, the paint scratches very easily - so that really sucks. After getting the car washed, water will leak down onto the gas pedal. Finally, there is a high pitched squeak coming from the right side when I hit a bump or divot in the road. Other than these things, I really love my Rogue. It is great for a single 30-something guy with a big dog. Hoping it isn't a lemon.

Satisfaction

I am impressed with the gas mileage. I have owned the Rogue since August 2016. So far, I average 27 city and 36 highway. Driving seat is comfortable but I would like another 2 inches of leg room. Plenty of head room. Storage space is ample. Wish they had a sunroof for the base model S. Still figuring out all of the electronics and the weather hasn't allowed me to test winter traction. Speakers are weak but this is a base model. Would highly recommend as a cheap all-wheel drive that is predominantly front wheel drive. Nissan wins with this one.

Nissan Rogue 2016 problem with suspension

some of this models comes with manufacturer problems. After 1 week bought it, it start to crackle noise when turn the wheels, right or left side. After first attempt to reparation, passed 7 weeks start again the same noise problem. Nissan corporation do not have a right solution now, they say the engineering are still working for a real solution. I mean, this models comes with suspension issues. I'm frustrated.

We were also interested in the Mazda CX-5 but went with the Nissan because it is very easy for my aging in-laws to get in and out of the back seat. The Mazda had a much narrower door opening. Also, the back seat is slightly elevated making it easier to see for the passengers in the back. Although the driving experience isn't as sporty as the Mazda, we really like the CVT transmission and are impressed with the fuel economy around town. All of the buttons are in the right place and we love the looks of the beige interior.

Rav4 or Ford Escape are better options than Rogue

Interior Color is Bright Red, which is bad. Door buttons don't have any light to look up in Dark/nights. Gear nob is not comfortable. 1 USB is not sufficient. Makes Lot of noise while accelerating and driving, even can't hear audio/music inside while accelerating. Poor Materials inside.

LOVE my new ride

This is the first new car I've purchased in 10 years and I LOVE it. I had been driving a Honda CRV and the size is comparable, but my Rogue is much more sporty. Great mom vehicle without looking like one.

Is this really a CVT?

Had a Maxima for six years before trading for this vehicle. There is absolutely no comparison in performance of the transmissions. This Rogue behaves more like a standard 4-speed automatic. Unpleasant for me because the Maxima shifting was so much smoother, responsive and predictable.
Update: This vehicle is practical, functional, economical. It is a good size and nicely appointed. It has ZERO fun quotient! Engineers must have designed it and built it on a Monday.

Not flashy, but a good value

Nissan gave me the best price as a year-end leftover with $3500 of incentives and the Rogue is a good value for the money. The Mazda CX-5 was the most fun to drive, but the Rogue felt more solid. It seems a lot bigger inside. The Hundai SantaFe compares well, had much better visibility, but their pricing was poor. The Rogue was the easiest for a big man to get in and out of - the Honda was the worst. I like the Rogue's flexible storage and even made additional panels. The seats are comfortable for a big man. My particular Rogue was made entirely in Japan (VIN starts with a "J") and I am expecting higher build quality without North American union labor. On the low end "S" model, the appearance option is money well spent. On the downside: The visibility is poor; both of the rear side windows are tiny and the front window pillars, and mirrors dangerously block view of pedestrians leaving the curb on either side - especially for shorter drivers. A 180 degree front view camera might help. One saving grace is that the rear window seems to be a bit larger than competition, but the rear seat headrests need to be removed to take advantage of it. The entry level remote control key system that comes with the "S" model will let you lock yourself out of the car; have a key cut by a locksmith ($4) that can only open the door, and hide it for this situation. At least it will let you lock your wife's purse inside the car, when she doesn't want to carry it - the high end remote control key system will not lock with her key inside her purse. Another minor negative is that the radio is biased heavily in favor of Apple connectivity and the designers simply forgot that Android phones exist. Further in this vein: A USB stick with music is a common media element in all the brands, but Nissan seems to have limited the radio's ability to read one to 16GB - there is no discussion of it in the documentation and the Dealer does not know anything about it. The 3-year warranty seems short, but the dealer had a way to extend it to 6 years & 72 months for 16 dollars per month. Another, feature worth giving up one Starbucks per week is the XM radio. Absolutely addictive - but their plans are limited. You can't order channels "a la carte" on a vehicle radio and they don't offer a plan with just music and news - you have to take (pricey) sports and/or other channels that you don't want. Lastly, I wish the advanced safety options were available on all the levels - in reality, they cost thousands more than the listed option cost - just to get to a level where they are available. Overall, my wife and family feel safe in this car, but my wife is less eager to drive it with the blind sports.

Rogue review

Purchased this SUV to replace a Frontier pickup which was only 7 months old when it was in a total loss crash (BAD). Decided to purchase a small SUV instead of a pickup as a replacement. So far the Rogue has been a pleasant choice. It is solid, quiet and comfortable to drive. It has been doing well with fuel mileage, better than the Jeep Patriot I had before the Frontier. The surround camera system is great for parking and the Bose system is great. Overall I am happy, with the only complaint that the 2.5 is a little rough compared to other 4's in this class, but the acceleration and highway manners more than make up for the rougher than average idle. I looked at Ford, and Jeep comps and went with the Nissan. Overall I think it's the better choice for me (GOOD).

A lot of noise vibration.

First week my Roque had a noise then finally they had to change the belt tension er and the that noise is gone, but in compaction with other cars that I had, even older, this rogue is the most noise one I had. It have a lot of vibration coming from the engine. I am not happy with this purchase.

So far So good!

I previously owned a Nissan Altima and since then have been impressed with the intuitive interior design of Nissan cars. Purchased the Rogue after looking at Subaru, Lexis and Toyota as well. I was interested in a hybrid with good gas mileage and all wheel drive capability, and the Rogue felt like the right size and was a comfortable ride! Have not owned the car long enough to know about maintenance costs or repair frequency, but if it's like my Altima, it'll be an easy car to maintain.

Great value

I purchased a 2016 Nissan Rogue SL AWD with the premium package and love it. It is very fuel efficient, drives smooth, holds the road and corners excellent for this class SUV. Comes with a ton of tech and safety features for the money. Great value. Would definitely buy again.

Great with one catch!

I bought this car for its combination of features, value, performance. So far very happy with almost every aspect of the vehicle. It rides well, quiet, great fuel economy, lots of great technology and those Zero Gravity seats are VERY comfortable. It looks great and I love the panoramic sunroof.....awesome. The only issue I am having is a creaking noise in the front right strut tower when you turn the streering wheel at slow speeds. My Nissan dealer said Nissan is aware of it and working on a fix. I will admit to being a bit OCD about noises in my vehicles. I REALLY hope they come up with a fix soon otherwise i will have to trade it in sooner than I want to. I would be curious if other Rogue owners have been having this issue. But as I said, other than that issue, love the car!

Darth Rogue Black on Black 2016 SL w/Premium Pkg

I went from a 2012 Nissan Frontier SV Crew Cab with the Sport Appearance package to this 2016 Rogue SL with the Premium Pkg and it was like going from the Flintstones to the Jetson's from an options, comfort and tech standpoint. Loving all the amenities that are in it and with a daughter coming up on going to driver's education all the safety features certainly appealed to me. So far so good. I wish the splash guards came with the SL package I figure at $34K sticker price it should have them already from the factory. Not worried about the lethargic CVT and engine as my performance car days are behind me and I was looking for features and a comfortable interior. Love the styling as well, sharp looking vehicle. So far so good!

AWESOME!!!!

Here are other other SUVs I tested: Mazda CX-5 - Ok but you can actually tell from the slope of the roof that the rear seats are going to be very tight. My 13 yo 5'-8" daughter just could not fit comfortably. RAV4- Sloping rear roof line means same rear seating issue with Mazda CX-5 - though a bit less cramped. Hyundai Santa Fe Sport - actually better than Toyota and Mazda and NIssan because it is roomier, has the most bang for the buck (turbo-charged for the same class!!)....would have been my choice but quality of interior materials are below of Japanese brands. Overall with performance and power being equal, Nissan Rogue has the best Exterior Design, Interior in terms of quality, roomiest Front and Rear seats, largest cargo volume.

Wouldve been a 5 if not for 1 thing

The car handles nicely for a 2.5L and the entertainment is nice. The only thing i absolutely hate about it is the seats. They are really uncomfortable and push your head forward if youre trying to rest your back on the seat. The bottom part of the seat is ok and holds you in place, id rate the back but the headrest restricts me from resting comfortably and the head rest sucks.

Summary:

In february 2016 i purchased a 2016 nissan after having owned muranos or rogue for about 9 previous years. the headlite system was changed to a led computer controlled system. the headlites were now very focused with no light escaping from a heavy direct concentrated beam. if the normal headlites were turned on and directed toward the back of another you can distinctly notice the clear area from the ground up to the height of the rogue's hood. the rest of the light would appear to be tinted. if the high beams were turned on you would have more light on the object in front of the rogue. the main problem is when the rogue is headed down hill. the bottom of the hill would be lit up but the area directly in front of the rogue would be like a black hole especially if travelling on an unlit country road. an accident waiting to happen. i returned to demo this condition to the nissan dealer who confirmed my feelings about the headlites. i then reported the same info to nissan who took my comments but did not indicate whether anything would be done. i urge you to investigate as it is another indication that headlites are a defect and should be corrected. thank you, the vehicle performs the same way whether stationary, in motion or on any type of road but is most dangerous on a dark country road. thank you burton welte 212 831-0540 burtwelte@gmail.com

My vehicle was recalled for an airbag sensor problem. i brought it in for the repair and now the airbag 'off'' light for the passenger seat is on. i called my dealership and they said that now the airbag light will stay on until a passenger weighing 120 lbs or more sits in the seat. the airbags will not deploy if someone under 120 lbs sits in the seat.. they didn't mention this when i was in for the recall and it seems quite dangerous. the manual indicates there is a problem if the light is still on 10 seconds after starting the car. they told me to disregard that it will now be on until someone over 120 lbs. sits in the seat. can this be right? if so they need to tell people that there's no airbag for people under 120lbs. a lot of adults weigh less than 120lbs and i'm sure not many people are aware that they have no airbag protection. thanks for your consideration.

Summary:

The passenger side airbag will not show activated under a certain condition. the condition is - if the driver buckles in and starts the car and puts it in gear before a 115# passenger gets in and buckles in, the air bag on the passenger side will not activate. i have to stop the car and turn it off and restart to get the airbag to activate. nissan in tennessee(800-877-647-7261, case #22914533) says this is normal. i find this to be dangerous, please advise.. a simple solution is to write in to sense a seat belt connection and activate the airbag.

Summary:

A few months after purchasing my brand new 2016 rogue, i noticed a noise coming from the front when i am backing up slowly and turning my wheels. i pointed this out to the nissan dealer where i purchased it and they determined it was my struts and bearings that needed replaced. i then took it to a different nissan dealer for a second opinion and they said they called nissan headquarters about this problem and was told that there have been numerous complaints about this problem and they are not exactly sure what parts need to be replaced to solve the problem. therefore, i continue to drive my new rogue with a noise in the front and nissan has no answers at this time.

Summary:

The tank opening allows a diesel fuel nozzle to fit and their sarcastic representative named coutney told me that is not their problem. it cost me over 8 hundred dollars in cost to pump out diesel gas and tow charges. nissan towing service would not help me when i was stranded by a busy 4 lane hwy. my car was about 2 weeks old. i pumped the gas and got on the high way and my car began jerking until it finally died. they road side service used the excuse that i said i was afraid stting like that so close to the high way not to give any assistance at all. i'd like to know, since nissan does not help customers at ll once they buy their cars, if there is any place that would remove them from the us. they should not be allowed to continue to sell cars with no assistance to customers and they contradict what the sales offices tell customers about such things as road side service. i don't think it is fair to americans that they are allowed to continue sales when they will not assist with any problems. "this is my second nissan and it was the same with the first. it is the corporate people i am complaining about. i have no problems with the dealer in high point nc where i bought the car. you give the means to contact nissan customer service in franklin but the truth is there is no0 assistance to be had by these people. they are a waste of time.

2016 Nissan Rogue Review

From Edmunds.com

The 2016 Nissan Rogue offers a number of strong points, including available seating for seven passengers, an upscale interior and a smooth ride. Unfortunately, it's hamstrung by an underwhelming powertrain and a suspension that produces lackluster handling. Still, the 2016 Nissan Rogue may be worth considering if you're looking for family-friendly transportation on a budget.

In an increasingly crowded compact crossover segment, the 2016 Nissan Rogue is a family-oriented model that certainly has some likable aspects. Most notable, perhaps, is its ability to seat up to seven passengers with the available third-row seat, which is quite uncommon among compact models. Upscale interior materials and design give the cabin a classy vibe, while available features like keyless entry and ignition and a surround-view camera system strike an upscale, high-tech chord. The interior also has a practical side, with up to 70 cubic feet of cargo room with the rear seatbacks folded down, a number that bests a number of competitors.

The 2016 Nissan Rogue is one of the roomier models in the compact crossover segment.

The Rogue also has its share of downsides, though. If you're just looking for a value-rich crossover with a smooth ride, this Nissan is bound to satisfy. But if you want any degree of driver engagement, you won't find it here. That's partly why the Rogue fell to a "C" rating in our evaluation: Its mandatory four-cylinder engine provides loud but otherwise forgettable acceleration, its continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) is relatively unresponsive, and its handling, while safe and secure, isn't the least bit engaging. Even putting performance-related concerns aside, the Rogue's rearward visibility is poor, and we've found its lofty EPA fuel economy ratings hard to replicate in real-world driving.

Accordingly, we suggest checking out some of the Rogue's competitors before making up your mind. The Mazda CX-5, for example, offers the fun-to-drive personality that the Rogue lacks, while the Honda CR-V is superior for all-around competence. For stronger acceleration, the Subaru Forester, fitted with its optional turbocharged engine, would be a better way to go, as would a V6-equipped Jeep Cherokee. If a reasonably sized three-row crossover is what you want, the Kia Sorento is a great choice, albeit a little more expensive one. Overall, the 2016 Nissan Rogue doesn't do much to stand out among this group, but it's still worth a look if space and comfort are priorities.
