Nissan is not doing very well to begin with.

My wife and I do not talk about such things, but the subject did come up last night of car manufacturers that might just not make it.

You have some Frankenstein monster amalgamations like Daimler Chrysler, which do not seem to have a clear direction or focus. Then Nissan is walking wounded. GM is growing into a market that it does not seem to understand. Ford is taking big risks on new vehicles. Tesla does "that one thing."

If one is perfectly honest, one would have to admit that protectionism is keeping a lot of these players alive. And it will protect them from the Chinese, Thai, and Korean players who all want in. Korean companies are paying their dues, but when they nail it, they are going to displace anyone in their space.

Then there is the EV transition. Outmoded production. Declining quality. Price competition. It is a crazy time for car companies.

So. A major slip up is going to nail somebody one of these days, and nobody will want to rescue them.

I remember the Nissan Rogue appearing as a 'featured product' on Heroes.
I had no idea they'd started shilling and it was incredibly jarring.
I don't remember watching after that.

ATM the Korean companies would be my goto for a regular old commuter car or an SUV if cargo needs dictated one.  They have their shiat together to a far greater degree than the U.S. companies do, all there is to it

Not a comic book person, but I don't seem to recall Rogue being the one who created electrical fires; like Pyro or Charlie McGee.

Well, it kind of depends on who she last touched, I imagine.

2fardownthread: Daimler Chrysler


Daimler Chrysler ceased to exist in 2007.  Daimler became Daimler AG after the majority stake in Chrysler was sold and the remaining 20% ownership of the rotting husk that was Chrysler was sold off to Fiat by 2009.

They're awful vehicles. I rented one the other day and the windshield trim kept falling off.

I know someone who bought one back in 2010 or so when they first introduced CVTs and it failed around 90k miles. Wasn't worth it to fix, they just traded it in for a Honda Pilot which is over 200k now and doing fine.

Nissan produces disposable garbage cars. They haven't been worth a shiat as a brand for the better part of 20 years. The Nissans that are on the road today? You probably won't see them 10 years from now. They'll be a rare sight.

My cousin leased a rogue. Loved it for a week or so. Hates it now.

Nissan puts flashy tech in their cars that fools some people. The rest are people who just want to pay $5-$10k less for the car than they would spend on a Toyota or Honda. Even the Korean makes are becoming more expensive around here (NJ).

When you compete on price, it's a race to the bottom.

I'm thinking about picking up a Passport. I had a Pilot, liked it, but don't need three rows of seats. The Passport is the same drive train but with more storage space and a spare tire inside the car instead of under it. I'd love a Ridgeline, but my wife has nixed that.

Without reading TFA, let me guess which model year group of Rogue this is for: Late 2013-2016.  That year group of Rogue's was also the one that if the car had the push button start, and you tried to add in a new key fob there was a 70% chance of it bricking the engine computer.  Dealers knew of the problem, and refused to add keys themselves, and instead passing it on to the mobile key companies, so if the computer does brick itself, the key company would have to pay for the replacement of the computer.  Parts and labor is around $3,000.00.  The company I used to work for that did keys out of the back of a van (that was a fun job in the winter time, let me tell you!) refused to do keys for those after we had a couple of Rogue's go.....Well.....Rogue.

Why? I love mine and we've taken it on several trips. It's the nicest car I've ever owned.

My boss and I went through our numbers over the Christmas break.  We're a mobile company that does module programming for vehicle repair shops.

Nissan CVT replacement was by far our #1 moneymaker last year.   Again.

Those transmissions are absolute garbage, even worse than the Ford dual clutch DSP6.

A recent class action lawsuit just forced Nissan to extend the warranty on CVTs by 2 years/20K miles, plus cash reimbursement for some folks who paid for repairs out of pocket.  So at least some owners are getting a bit of relief.

Personal history:

Nissan 4-door: Straight trash
Toyota 4-door: Totally solid. No complaints.
Honda SUV: Bullet-proof engine, garbage transmission
Ford SUV: Totally solid. No complaints.

The tank's policy is: never save a rogue.
You wanna run off and get yourself killed you can die alone. I've got to keep the rest of the team alive.

Doesn't want a pickup, wants the enclosed SUV.

I'm on my second Subaru Crosstrek.  Fun cars.  Sort of a competitor to the Rogue.

I love my rogue.

Got tired of putting new head gaskets in my Subarus, and being a very tall person, I have few actual options for cars.

I mean, sure I've had it for 40k miles and it's been in for recall work twice...

It... may not last beyond the first major repair after the warranty runs out, but thanks to a class-action lawsuit, that warrantee has been extended by 20k miles, so...

...yeah

They do need to work on her wardrobe a bit. As in remove some of it. But that's just 1 old dogs view of things.

Get a trailer hitch and rent a 5x10 trailer when you want to haul some boards.

Not that your wife is going to be swayed but I had a Honda Element and really liked it but got back into mountain biking and my bike won't fit inside. SUVs don't have much room anyway.

This. Nissan is excelling at the moment as the number one manufacturer of the go-to commuter car for the credit challenged. I live in a city with a lot of poverty, and I'd say every fourth car on the road is some dented Nissan pos from the last decade.
