Model Years Affected: 2008, 2009, 2012, 2013

Average Mileage: 42,360 mi (7,000 mi - 102,000 mi)


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.

    Fuel gauge never reads full after rolling past 16,000 miles. Have to fill the tank to overflow level to make sure it is full. Still reads inaccurately. Dealer not aware of TSB on this issue until he checked with service department. Quote for repair: $119. to diagnose.
    $420. for sender unit and sub-sender unit (vehicle is AWD) and $263. for labor. Informed me I was his first customer with this problem. According to info from other Rogue owners on the web, this is a common problem. Nissan should issue a recall not a TSB.

    Took it back to Nissan dealership with around 12k because everytime I filled up take the tank the fuel gauge would only read a 1\2 of tank, then slowly creep up to 3\4 of a tank. They replaced fuel sender & something else. However this has not fixed the issue as it's still doing the same thing. I have not brought it back to the dealer as I feel they don't have a fix for this issue from what I have read online in the Nissan forums.

    Fuel gauge not reading correctly, and when adding gas it won't allow me to fill. Started few months now worse. Ken Pollack dealer wanting to charge $89 before looking at being rude. Haven't gotten fixed.

    Fuel guage shows more than it has in it, also bad hesitation at times, but does not set a code.

    I took my rogue in for the 30000 mile service and since then the fuel gauge is only starting at 3/4 of a tank, then gets up to full, after putting 15.1 gallons in the car, the mileage gauge shows only 250 miles then after driving a few miles it goes up to 310, but never is the same. Before Dick Smith in Columbia worked on my car, I would get 388 miles per fill up. I have spoken to the service manager and even Jud Smith who called me and said he roadtested my car and it holds 15.8 gallons and get 26 miles per gallon, which should be 418 and my fuel light should come on around 385-390. This last fill up I had to get fuel at 341 with only 22 miles left which would have been 363...and Jud Smith said the computer said everything is fine with my car. I lost $600, my car is not the same and I'm getting ready to go to Nissan directly. Don't ever let Dick Smith Nissan on Two Notch road work on your vehicle.

    The fuel gauge never registers as full even though we overfill the gas tank. It has not been fixed.

    Fuel gauge reads empty at start up then climbs to correct level. Sometimes works ok. Nissan dealer quote was $880.. a bit of a shocker. Service rep had to order part so this might be a good sign that this is not very common problem.
