Bought one for the wife to replace her 2005 Ford Focus. Base model 2wd w/alloy wheels. Silver/blk interior. Except for the back-up camera nothing overly technical. Basic car. I/we like simply. When the sales person brought the car out, I was astonished how good it looked both inside and out. I didn't realize it was completely different from the regular Rogue. Elsewhere around the world it's called "Qashqai." These are selling for just under $18K. Very comfortable ride and great seats. Excellent visability out. Engine has enough power IMO. Never owned a CVT transmission. Seems perfect for the car. Made in Japan. Keep on top of maintaince (especially the CVT fluid) and I think this will be one really nice car for a very long time. Could not be more pleased w/purchase. By all means check this out if you're in the market for a new car. smile

The 2017 has the upgraded interior. I drove a 15 and a 16 after driving a 17.
You just can't go back; the 17 has such great seats, especially compared with the others.
You will love the Rogue.

The Nissan Qashqai is a very popular model everywhere in the world where it is sold. Now in the US but with the less exciting name Rogue Sport. Nissan has really improved their cvt transmissions since their big problems several years ago. Made in Japan means excellent build quality and fit and finish.

Congrats on your new crossover.

I've never driven a Nissan, I always hear their seats are very comfortable.

I'm still too scared of the CVT in them.

Congrats on the purchase!

I'm scared of CVT's because I like to get maximum mileage out of my vehicles with minimum costs as I drive a lot of miles for work and I don't think CVT's are there yet. Keep us posted. thumbsup

Congrats! The new ones are pretty nice.

Under $18K? That seems hard to believe.

Mistu is scoring lower on reliability than Hyundai... wink

I realize this is JD and I don't trust them but they are the only ones with a chart that I can find at the moment and it's pretty close to information I have read prior.

55K miles on the wife's '14 Rogue (AWD). GREAT road car due to the seats. Wished it had more power.

Yes, under 18K New. I found it hard to believe as well. What I really like about the price is that I/we didn't have to be a (1) Uber driver, (2) have a flood damaged vechicle, (3) be a newly graduated student, (4) First responder, nor (5) Boy scout to get this price. Wonderful. Look on-line and you should find one for this price. Purchased for price of $17,680. Inc. freight but not administration fee of $647. 2.9% fin. @ 60 mo. through CU. I told the wife, this is her chance to get a new car as anything more could not comfortably afford. She really, really likes this car! Sharp looking car. Plenty of storage space as well. Be aware the back seats do not recline. Not a deal breaker. Some may even prefer it this way. As far as the CVT transmission, I really think if you keep the fluid fresh and change early and often (as every 25-30K), I foresee no problems. Hopefully. Oil/Filter changes super easy. I'll be doing all the maintenance. Nissan recommends 6mo./7500 mi oil/filter. Every 2 yr. brake fluid changes. (Really? on the brake fluid) Overall, I really nice car for a great price IMO.

That's a nice little ute. Seats look comfy. Wish there was a more powerful engine option available.

These are nice looking little machines and you certainly got a good price on it. The interiors do look good.
May you enjoy many happy years and miles with this Nissan.
