My parents new ride... Nissan Rogue!

So my parents just sealed the deal on an 08 Rogue SL AWD tonight. It has been meticulously taken care of and they bought it through a nearby dealer (Collins Nissan in St. Catharines). Took it out for a test drive last friday night, then tonight took my mom to drive it for herself since she will be the main driver of it (although I will be borrowing it for snowboarding trips). Its got Heated seats, moonroof and the cvt with paddle shifters. Seems to drive super smooth, and in searching forums couldn't really find any REAL complaints about them, so it seems like a solid car. Bought the 200,000km/10 year warranty too. I don't know the actual name for the colour but its a nice blue colour. I will post pics when they get it on monday.

The dealership was awesome, great people there, so far it has been an all round awesome experience. We will have 3 Nissans in our family now (my V, my sister has a sentra, and now moms rogue!)

Sounds good! Lots of our family members have Rogues, they love them ...

The CVT automatically comes with the 10 year/200,000 km warranty. They shouldn't have had to pay extra for that.
What warranty did they end up upgrading to?

Its a comprehensive warranty. Not just power train

Best part is the 200,000 km/10 years starts at the time of sale... so it has a comprehensive warranty until well over 200,000 km. I made sure to check into the details and fine print and it seemed it couldn't go wrong. Although that might last 5 years with how much we drive lol. Oh the joys of living in the country.

I searched the web and couldn't find too much bad about rogues, so it seemed like a pretty safe buy. The only other vehicle he was considering was a pontiac torrent and the interior and just general quality of it was nowhere near that of the rogue. I can't wait to steal it for snowboard trips

Ya a few coworkers have the Rogue as well, and have only ever said good things. Most just say they "avoid Plaza" at all costs.

The warranty through Nissan is pretty good. I haven't had to pay for anything but oil changes which is great.

Best of luck to them with the Rogue! I'm sure they will enjoy it.

Thanks!

Yeah I already had my time with Plaza. Which you know and can relate to. When my dad told me he was checking their website my response was what the hell for?

It is a Blue colour... not too sure what the official name of it is, but it is simliar to the colour of your car bluvee.

08V. Plaza likes to make us feel as though any issue is our fault. They have the worst customer service ever. I dont even know how they still exist!
