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

does the problem of gas smelling affect only the new rogue with 1.5 L T or there are some cases with the 2.5 L
I just returned from the dealer with my 2023 Rogue. Their response to me in my opinion is unacceptable. They told me all the same things that I have read here," nothing they can do, no recall, wait and see....".Nothing they can do until a recall is issued or I blowup because its an actual gas leak?
hello, is your version a turbo one or the old 2.5 L ?
seems only the 1.5T have this kind of problem, both US and Canada version, but someone said even the US made 1.5T engines are from japan.
looks a bit like the issue with the CRV when honda introduced the turbo 1.5 L with 2017 version, that was first Turbo in CRV and lots of people reported fuel leaks mixing with engine oil compartment which led to gas smell via the AC vent...did you check your dip stick whether there is no excessive oil ?

Actually I am not owning this car , I very like the look of the new rogue and want to buy one this quarter however with the issue of gas smell I will pick the 2.5 version which is available in canada in case this engine is not reported to have this issue
Like I said, I haven't seen any and neither has Nissan TechLine. The 2.5 seems to be free of this problem.
thanks a lot
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.
thanks for the update .... "the problem is almost totally limited to areas with temperatures below freezing" it seems there are some buyers living in hot region too, if I recall correctly the previous posts
