Nissan Rogue

Professional insights on the sporty Nissan Rogue cross-over and the transmission issues that challenge the vehicle's reliability and the best solutions that we have to offer.

Nissan has been known to double its warranty period as it relates to its CVT auto transmission, but only for the 2008, 2009 and 2010 Nissan Rogue vehicle. This is extra assurance to the consumer regarding the total cost of owning one of these vehicles. The current powertrain has a warranty coverage extension of 60,000 miles over 5 years. And, the consumer did not have to pay an additional cost for the CVT replacement, repair or related towing needs. The consumer did not have to do anything to receive this extension. The other warranty coverage for other parts did not change. To solve the problem, you could do a Nissan Rogue remanufactured transmission or rebuilt transmission. Only a professional can tell you the right approach.

Common Problems With The Transmission

When you place the shifter in drive, the Nissan Rogue won’t move forward. What is the problem and what do you do about it? The problem is possibly because the gear is not engaging or the transmission might be slipping. The solution is to be adding CVT fluid because it is low. It could be a failure of the speed sensor. But, it could be a transmission forward clutch or pump failure. Other problems to notice with this and other transmissions is:

  • Fluid leakage
  • Burning smell
  • Issues with torque converter
  • Clunking, grinding or whining sound
  • Issues with the valve body
  • Slipping gears
  • When in neutral, unusual noise
  • Clutch dragging
  • Engine light check coming on

Can You Still Drive?

If you are having any of these problems with your Nissan Rogue transmission, and you can still drive the vehicle to short distances, you may think that everything is fine until you can get to fix the problem. However, this is not a good solution. It is best to take it to a professional for an in-depth look at it to determine the real problem. If not, then you could cause yourself a hefty bill.

The Transmission Lifespan

The Nissan Rogue transmission has a lifespan that depends largely on how you maintained it while driving the vehicle. The flaws in factory design have to also be taken into consideration and this includes issues with the radiator as was the case with the Titan and RE5R05A Nissan. It also depends on how hard and fast you drive on a frequent basis. Many Nissan Rogue can last up to 180,000 miles; depending on its upkeep and how it was driven. If you have to do a reman, you can choose to speak to a qualified Nissan transmission professional
