We techs also wish Nissan would change these systems. It isn't just Rogues, it's most Nissan Auto HVAC's. For reasons known only to some programmer in Calsonic's basement, when in Manual, the fan speed and mode buttons all work normally but the outlet temperature doesn't respond to the dial in any predictable manner. There's no "ratiometric" response and certainly no relation to the displayed temperature. Some will move very little from whatever temp they were set for when Auto was turned off. The only good workaround is to put the system in Auto and fiddle the dial until the outlet temp is more or less where you want it, then turn Auto back off and do what you want with the mode and fan speed. The reason the temperature jumps suddenly at 60~61 or 89~90 is because those are "overrides", basically telling the system to make it as cold or warm as possible without regulation. Personally I'm happy with the way Auto works in our '13 Altima, but my wife despises it for exactly the reasons above. If you want heat on your hands on a chilly morning or cold air on hot feet after work, you have to mess around to get it. We've had numerous discussions with TechLine about this on numerous models, but the only answer we ever get is, "That's how it works." It's apparent that no one in the design department or further up the chain is listening. That's a pity, because it would only take a small firmware change to have the temperature door follow the dial ratiometrically when in Manual. I can only suggest that as consumers, you complain loudly about it to Nissan Consumer Affairs. Enough complaints at a sufficient volume level is the only thing likely to move the mountain.
