Hi Rebecca, I can understand your frustration as I am going thru the same for past 5 months or so. I won't buy into Winter condition et explanation. I have driven Car in Cold and Warm weather as well as in various modes like Economy, Normal and Sports but none could solve vibration issue. I have had my car serviced at least thrice for same issue - first Idle was increased to 920 RPM, second time tech raised hands and third it was brought down to 900 RPM. Contacted the corporate office of Nissan and they have raised their hands suggesting I can contact BBB if I am unhappy. What a pathetic situation and careless company.

All

I am also facing the same vibration problem , very noisy inside the cabin , steering vibrates I test drove other cars they are way smoother than Nissan rogue .. mine is just 3000 miles , right from day 2 I am feeling this vibrations . Once I took to the dealer they say they don't hear any noise or vibrations ... I assume people are now realizing the engine quality .. hope Nissan fix this issue ..taking to the dealer once again in this week. :(

Well good luck. I know, Dealership's first response is to deny that there exists any vibration at all. Even if they do accept, they will just bump up Idle, Dealership will not try anything further. Looks like they know deep in their heart that this is the problem with Rogue/CVT however I guess, they have instructions or understanding to keep this under the wraps. Unless there is customer awakening, we will have to accept this as our faith and get rid of the car in future with pledge not to buy Rogue ever again.

Jeez a quick peek shows they sold close to 330,000 of them in 2016 alone in the US. If you include Canada and the XTrail versions outside NA the total is probably well over a half a million 2016 versions sold.
Here are some owner's revues

I don't dispute that you are having issues, but clearly not everyone is having problems. Are you using good quality gasoline? Can you go to another dealer. Sadly they are not all alike.

Thanks for sharing your views. Sales number often isn't a true reflection of problem if any with the car and trouble owners are facing. If you look at CRV numbers, they're still ahead and what I heard and read over the web, post CVT introduction, its also experiencing vibration and noise issues, owners are complaining but they're still selling probably leveraging brand value, other good features, value for money etc. Competitors are watching the opening and they're catching up pretty fast. One of the reasons for aggressive growth numbers of Rogue was very aggressive marketing, 72 months 0% financing, lot of rebates, very attractive lease deals. So several factors led to their success. I am no marketing or sales expert but little bit of what I see. I am going to try couple of other dealers.

I agree with you with regards to aggressive marketing and financing offers. I was just pointing out that like Honda they have moved tons of these. The year over year sales increases have been impressive. I have actually been surprised to see so little commentary about it from owners here. Granted this place is more focused on helping those with older models. I did test drive the 2014 when it came out. It didn't wow me, nor give me reason to move on from my T30 X Trail model which is more similar to what the 2008-13 Subaru Forester became. 181,000 kms on mine and no vibrations at idle! 10 years old and other than fluids, brakes, bearings and suspension items which are normal wear its been bullet proof. Still original radiator, exhaust, alternator, and all accessories work perfectly. Engine and transmission are perfect. Mind you 10 years ago it cost the same as a new Rogue does today.

Thanks me, same here. I understand and agree with your good experience with Nissan. Until Rogue, I was having similar experience. I had driven Nissan Primera which was almost 10 years old when sold and was performing like new. Then another car with Nissan footprint I am still driving is Mercury Villager, 16 years old, running on Nissan Power Train and still going strong. Villager has been a great reliable companion, still the power train is the best part and I drove it on journey's over 1.2k miles one way without a single failure. More than me, my wife has great confidence in Nissan car and that was one of the reason we bought Rogue as she is the primary driver for same. However this vibration and in-cabin noise has spoiled the taste. More so when you see 15+ old car if not better than not worst either compared to brand new 28 grand car in terms of vibration and cabin noise. To make the situation worst, instead of paying attention to customer complaint and making an effort to resolve the situation, write a letter back to customer and advise to contact BBB. Is this the reason why one buys a brand new car and is this the experience and treatment one hope for. Certainly not. In this era of consumer driven market, quality of product is foregone conclusion. We hear companies talk about owning experience, buying experience et over and above expecting product to do what it is supposed to. So expecting Rogue to perform without annoying vibration and cabin noise hopefully isn't asking for moon.

Steering vibration

I got hosed with. 2016 Rogue also. At around 7000 the vibration started and the service Dept. says they all do it. I'm trying Texas Lemon law and also have access to attorneys. It's a shame the Nissan Dealer and the Corp would put people through the frustration and sheer agony of having to deal with this when they have known all along that it's not normal. If I ever get out from under this thing I'll never own another Nissan.

Six days ago I purchased a 2017 Nissan Rogue. Unfortunately because I switched colors on the car, I did not test drive my final vehicle (bad idea). I've noticed a vibration (like bees are buzzing under my foot) in the accelerator petal off and on, mostly when the vehicle changes to a higher speed. This happens each and every drive. I finally notified the dealer yesterday, left it with their service department all day, and two of the mechanics said they drove it several miles and felt no vibration, they inspected the vehicle and saw nothing wrong, and the vehicle is safe. I test drove 2 other Rogues today, and I noticed both of them had slight accelerator vibrations, but not nearly as much as mine (on a 1-10 scale, with 10 being worst, mine was a 10, and those other two were about a 2). The mechanics also said they had never heard of this problem. I left the dealership, and the problem was again immediate. I went back into the dealership, and my salesperson graciously drove my vehicle with me in the passenger seat. He immediately felt the exact problem. He discussed the issue with the mechanics, and evidently management, and told me that I'd have to bring it back again tomorrow. The dealership would not grant me a loaner car, and said I'd have to rent one with their discount rate. I do not have a good feeling about this matter at all, because if those two service technicians truly did not feel any vibration (which I find surprising), I'm not optimistic that this problem will be repaired. I would even upgrade to one of the higher priced models, if this will enable me to have a good vehicle. I'm in California. Any suggestions from anyone on how to handle this problem will be much appreciated.

Possible solution to Steering Wheel Vibration

My wife and I both drive Rogues. Mine had more steering wheel vibrations than hers did, and it was driving me a little crazy. I seemed to have resolved the issue though. The Rogues have steering wheels that are telescopic, and mine was almost all the way out. When I pushed it further in, the vibrations have all but disappeared. It seems that any vibration at all was being multiplied by the fully extended steering wheel. I hope this helps a few of you.

My 2017 Rogue has a very slight vibration at around 1200 rpm's. Doesn't seem abnormal to me as I have driven many cars that did the same thing at low rpm's.

Rogue shuddering when idiling

My car has done this for years, shuddering, sounding like it's losing power while stopped at a stop sign or light. Recently it got worse and pretty rough sounding. Took it to my cousin's garage and found out the throttle was dirty. It was a very quick, easy fix. My car sounds so smooth now-like brand new.

My 2018 New Nissan Rogue Vibrates

I new 2018 Rogue SV also vibrates a lots during low RPM (1200) at lower speed. I found it always vibrates when it is at MRP 1200 and high gear (6 or 7). If I shift the gear lower, it won't vibrate. Nissan sent a specialist to the dealer to repair it but they couldn't fix it. They offer me $1000.00 to settle the case and I denied since I can't drive the car like that the remaining of my life.

New Rogue 2016 SV AWD. The car was smooth when test driven. However, after few hundred miles (<1000 miles) on it has started vibrating significantly. The vibration is significant when idling in gear (for example, when stopped at a traffic intersection). The problem increases when AC and Fan is turned on. And I mean this is serious vibration. All occupants in the car can feel the vibes! Including passengers in the second row.

I contacted Nissan Corporate and the Dealership. They acknowledged that the vibration exists - But classify it as a 'Normal Operating CHARACTERISTIC' of the car!!! This seems to be a prevalent problem with Nissan; and a unfair trade practice. And if this is truly a 'Operating Characteristic' of a car, then the information must be placed on the Window Sticker! I would not have spent 25 grand to buy a badly designed car!. Legal and Consumer Advocates - please take note. A quick internet search indicates this story has been played far too long.
Interesting I have the same problem
2016 rogue found out someone traded it in at 11k miles beacause of vibration
This a know problem but Nissan can’t figure it out. I’ve had it at 3 different dealerships
I read somewhere someone was able to get every penny back for their rogue
I will never buy a Nissan again
This means they put up a good fight and won
I can’t wait to dump mine but underwater too much right mow
