So currently I drive a 2007 Jeep Liberty to work and my wife drives a 2015 Nissan Rogue. As our family is growing we will be shopping for a new three row vehicle later on in the year for my wife. Between the jeep and the nissan I will drive one and sell the other. It will serve primarily as a commuter vehicle but can serve as utility vehicle, backup family vehicle. My current job is 30 miles each way and I have to show up regardless of weather. The nissan may have more safety features but the jeep may be heavier so not sure which is actually safer in a crash.

Jeep pros: looks, true 4wd
Nissan pros: gas mileage, newer

What would you do?

I don't like cvt transmissions, you're in NY = snow, so i'd ditch the rogue.

But to be fair, you did not give us accumulated mileage on each vehicle.

Liberties seem to be aging poorly, judging from craigslist.

But it's good policy IMO to have a good car and a beater so you're only under one set of payments. Flip flop who gets the new one.

With all the issues with the Nissan CVT I would probably sell it, even if the Jeep looses an engine or transmission either could be replaced for less than the cost of a replacement CVT for the Nissan. I vote the Nissan goes.

If both are in good shape, I'd keep the Jeep

Just more fun overall....

Jeep is limited model, 100k mileage, good shape overall

Nissan is more midlevel trim, 20k mileage

The Jeep in an instant unless your are making payments on that Rogue.

2015 is far safer due to superior crash design then a 2007.

I think there's a very high chance the Rogue's CVT will give you trouble eventually. I'm not a particular fan of the Liberty but it could still have another 100K in it.


I like Chevy and Valvoline.

I'd keep the Jeep. Cheaper insurance, tags and taxes. Drive the wheels off it. You'll get more for the Nissan and can put that toward your family car/van. I'd sell it before the CVT shells. You'll be out less money if you wreck the Jeep in bad weather on the daily commute, door dings in the lot, road damage/wear and tear, etc.

If I were in that situation, I would sell the Jeep, and use the Rogue as my 30 mile commute vehicle.

I'd be afraid of the repair costs on an aging Jeep (ask me how I know) and the CVT in the Nissan would scare me too.

I'd sell both and find a suitable replacement for you, like a Highlander or a CX-7 or something.

But if you had to keep one, I guess the Rogue is what I'd pick.
