2008 Nissan Rogue Problems

Check Engine Light due to code P0444

The Check Engine Light may illuminate with a stored code P0444. This can be caused by a broken wire at the canister purge volume control solenoid valve. Our technicians tell us if a broken wire is found at the solenoid, a kit is available from Nissan to repair this issue. 

The Fuel Gauge May Read Incorrectly

The fuel gauge may read incorrectly due to a faulty sender in the tank. A failed fuel level sender will require replacement to restore correct fuel gauge operation.

Cracked Transmission Oil Cooler

According to the service station, my oil cooler is cracked. I have read that there is a problem with the Altima Oil Cooler but not sure if the part is the same for the Rogue or if it's even the same issue. The mechanic said he can get the part and replace it thankfully, before it could damage my transmission.

I have been told that worn control arm bushings on 2008 Rogue cannot be replaced (1 answer)

Instead you must replace the control arm. Is this true? What should it cost?

Potential Electrical Fire

A mixture of snow/water and salt can seep through the interior carpet on the drivers side resulting in an electrical short in a wiring harness connector under the carpet. If left unchecked this could lead to a fire. Dealers will inspect the kick panel wiring harness connector and if necessary install a new harness connector and waterproof seal free of charge to resolve the concern.

Nissan Recalls 2008–2010 Vehicles with Garmin Nuvi 750 Nav Systems Due to Overheating

Nissan is recalling 2008–2010 models equipped with Garmin Nuvi 750 navigation systems because the battery may overheat, which could lead to a fire. Nissan will notify owners and Garmin technicians will replace the unit's battery and insert a spacer to prevent the problem from reoccurring. This will be performed free of charge.

Steering May Have Reduced Response Due to Loose Gear Housing Fastener

The steering gear housing retainer screw could come loose and allow a loss of steering control in extreme circumstances. Dealers will re-secure the fastener and install a cover plate to prevent the screw from coming out again. This recall began during November 2009.

2008 Nissan Rogue Reviews

nothing but trouble 3 transmissions under 120,000 miles. Shuddering during idle at an intersection so violently it shakes the entire car. Several dealerships no solution no support from Nissan. Notified their consumer complaint division, never got a returned call. Stranded more than once on interstate while on a trip (out of state) multiple problems, no solutions. Will never own another own.
nice, quiet ride, pretty design, inside particularly!
