2023 Rogue-Same gas smell inside cabin and outside of car as others here have reported. Took the Rogue to the local Nissan dealership yesterday, and they said Nissan is aware of the issue and that the Rogue is under Engineering Review. Nissan dealership said they checked for gas leaks to make sure there was no safety problem, but that there was nothing else to do until Nissan issues a recall or figures out a fix for wherever the gas is leaking. Dealership said I had to be able to visually see leak and not just smell gasoline for them to do more. Also, I stay in the mid 20s for gas mileage even though I drive on Eco. Contacted national Nissan # and supposedly someone should be contacting me, but I see others have had no luck resolving this issue either. Unsure of what next steps should be

I am curious how the Nissan Engineers are looking into this when they refuse to look at any of these cars? If they do not have an example on hand, how are they going to figure out the issue?

I had similar with my parking brake issues. The field services people would say they would look at my car then disappear never to be heard from again. I feel like they would tell me this just to get the car back to me or even avoid taking it in at all. They did this to me 3 times. The latest was back on December 20th and I am still waiting. Not that it matters anymore as they are finally buying my car back. Thank goodness for the lemon law.

My dealership techs were great, but Nissan Corporate is not to be trusted people. Nissan Consumer Assurance ghosted me for 3 months after my 3rd visit to the dealer. Car was in the shop 7 times in 7 months and 5000 miles. Then when I legally met the lemon law requirements, they finally contacted me again. BUT in that conversation, I caught the rep in 4 or 5 lies. She knew I had hired a lawyer and tried to get me to drop the lawyer. Like I said, they are not to be trusted.

Nissan offered me all of $2000 and I would keep the car. They say the warranty will still be in effect. But what good is a warranty if they won't even take the car in to look at it? As it is I have 2 more new issues that I couldn't ever get them to look at.

Anyway everyone having this gas leak issue, do strongly consider hiring a lawyer. Lemon laws are different in each state but in AZ and CA at least, the cost of the lawyer is paid by Nissan not you.

I can't say anything more at this time, but I can disclose that Engineering has found the source of the problem and there are parts being manufactured as we speak. They'll be issuing a service bulletin as soon as the parts chain catches up. I'm told the problem is a materials issue in the PCV system related to winter fuel (porous rubber would be my educated guess), and that the problem is almost totally limited to areas with temperatures below freezing. The fix is on the way.

That much better accounts for the people stating this also happens while driving. The idea that it was due to leaking injectors at shut down just wasn't sounding plausible for those people's situation.
