How many trouble free miles can I expect from my 2009 rouge with 118K?

Postby MEGT369 » Wed Nov 14, 2018 3:41 pm

Hi everyone!

I have a 2009 Rouge with 118k. I was just wondering how many more miles can I expect from it trouble free? I should say I have spent around $2500 during last couple years for these items: right and left side wheel bearing/hub assembly, right side axle, engine belt, terminal assembly connector for battery and AC compressor. so I'm wondering is it just me to have all these problems after passing 100k miles? Also do you think I should stop fixing this car and buy a new vehicle at this point?

Thanks!

It depends on how much more money you are willing to invest into the vehicle. But I would start looking into getting a newer one soon just in case if there is a hefty repair that will cost more than 1/4 of a brand new vehicle.

Most of those problems will occur after 100k miles regardless, because of the reason being high-mileage.

The transmission is a ticking time bomb. It will probably go out at some point. You've got until 120,000 miles until the transmission isn't covered under the extended warranty given by Nissan. My recommendation would be to sell it and get something different while it is still running well. However, I may be a little biased since I just had to shell out a good chunk of change for a new transmission on my 2013 Rogue with 80k miles.

Did you do any fluid changes prior to your CVT failing at 80k? I have a 2013 also with 124k and it works great right now. Did a complete flush at 80k.

Had a fluid change done at about 25k miles by the Nissan dealer I purchased the car from. Their recommendation was I would not need another fluid change/flush until 90k miles. Clearly my CVT did not make it that far.

Thanks for the insight guys! I forgot to mention that my car had transmission issue as well, they put a new one around 85K for free.

If you haven't changed any rubber coolant hoses or the stat you are already in no man's land now. I change those on every vehicle I have by 100K, it stops the most common breakdown from happening. If you changed serp belt but no tensioner that is a big miss too. As well as any free spinning idler pulley in there.

My 2008 Rogue CVT failed at just before 10 Years/120,000 (it was covered/replaced), you may want to consider looking for something else. I don't have much faith in Nissan anymore and regret buying our 2014 Pathfinder Platinum Premium. I feel like the CVT is a ticking timebomb. I'm not sure why Nissan still uses them or hasn't worked with the manufacturer to improve the reliability and serviceability of them.

FYI... Infiniti QX50 and QX60 has the dreaded CVT. That's one huge reason why I told my father to get the Acura MDX over the QX60 and Pathfinder. Plus, who pairs a CVT with a V6? It wouldn't give great gas mileage nor great towing capacity.

OP: You should look into Honda or Acura as your next vehicle.

QX60 can tow 5000 and Pathfinder 6000, which are pretty standard for midsize SUV. Strangely, the Murano, which also has V6 is only rated to tow 1500 lbs. QX50 can tow 3000, which is better than most compact SUVs. That said, I'm not sure how much I'd trust the CVTs to hold up under more strenuous towing given that they are still having issues.

As for the OP, I have a 2008 closing in on 120K miles and I'm planning to replace it soon as I don't want to worry about the CVT crapping out.
