2019 Nissan Rogue Problems
Awarded with the 2019 Best-in-Class Vehicle Satisfaction Honors, the 2019 Nissan Rogue and its dazzling features seemed like a great option for many consumers. Unfortunately, after taking home this SUV, many consumers quickly discovered that their vehicles were neither safe nor reliable. The numerous problems reported by consumers regarding the 2019 Nissan Rogue are irritating at best and life-threatening at worst. If you currently own a 2019 Nissan Rogue, there are some substantial issues involving this vehicle that you should be aware of.
2019 Nissan Rogue Transmission and Other Issues
The 2019 Nissan Rogue’s automatic emergency braking system (AEB) is at the center of many of the complaints lodged by Nissan Rogue consumers. Drivers say that their vehicles will suddenly brake while in use, despite there being nothing in front of or to the rear of the vehicle. Some Rogue owners have reported brake failure with their cars refusing to stop despite pressing down on the pedal. To prevent possible accidents, many Rogue owners have elected to turn off their AEB entirely, removing an important safety feature from their cars.
Other Rogue consumers report also experiencing problems with their transmissions. Nissan Rogue vehicles are equipped with CVT or continuously variable transmission systems that are notorious for poor performance. 2019 Nissan Rogue drivers have spoken out about the following problems with their vehicles:
- Difficulty changing gears
- Lack of power
- And more…
If that’s not bad enough, there are Rogue drivers who have seen their CVTs fail early into the lifecycle of the vehicle and sometimes very early at just 40,000 miles. Transmissions in other vehicles generally last at least 100,000 miles before issues begin.
2019 Nissan Rogue Complaints
Following 87 official complaints and a formal petition from the Center for Auto Safety (CAS), the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), launched an investigation into the Nissan Rogue’s AEB system. NHTSA announced that they would review over 600,000 2017-2018 Nissan Rogue cars, indicating that the AEB in these vehicles may have been defective for years, yet the automaker continued to produce them. In 2019 alone, 14 accidents and 5 injuries can be linked to the Rogue’s AEB system.
AEB warning lights can appear at any time while the vehicle is in use, whether the car is driving on a clear highway or backing out of a garage. These issues seem to affect all Nissan Rogue model types such as the 2019 Nissan Rogue Sport and the 2019 Nissan Rogue Hybrid. In formal complaints to NHTSA, some Nissan Rogue drivers say they have experienced lemon problems with less than 500 miles on the odometer.
“An alarm went off in my car announcing my brakes failed. The brake pedal was stiff and not responding. I noticed the brake icon was on the dash. I drove less than 600 yards to the Nissan dealership, pulled into the parking lot and I had less than 5% braking capacity.”

“The camera that controls the automatic braking system as well as the lane warnings keeps saying there is an obstruction but there isn’t one. I owned the vehicle for about one hour when the warning light appeared.”
- 2019 Nissan Rogue Owner
“With no prior issues, while accelerating from a full stop, the AEB system engaged on a clear roadway. I was traveling no more than 20 mph. The front collision warning beeped, warning lights on the dashboard flashed, the ABS rumbled and slowed my vehicle. There was absolutely nothing on the roadway to trigger this. It was daylight and the road was dry and clear. There were no vehicles, pedestrians or even animals in my path. Had there been another vehicle behind me, I could have been rear ended.”
- 2019 Nissan Rogue Sport Owner
“The vehicle’s automatic emergency braking system engaged unnecessarily as I was driving. I was traveling on a highway at about 45-50 miles per hour. There were no obstacles in the road, and no other vehicles, bridges, railroad tracks, or low hanging objects in my path. I did not have an accident, but only because there wasn’t a car behind me as I came to a complete stop in my lane of the highway. Prior to this incident, I had been getting warning lights indicating that I was having a malfunction with the automatic emergency braking system.”

Nissan Rogue Recall
There are currently two recalls affecting the 2019 Nissan Rogue. In September 2019, Nissan North America, Inc. recalled several of its models including the Rogue and Rogue sport due to backup camera failure. Over one million of the car brand’s most popular SUVs and sedans were affected. Apparently, both the display and back-up camera settings can be adjusted so that the rearview image is not visible. The car’s display system does not return to its default settings the next time it is placed in reverse, causing drivers to see a blank screen in place of the rearview camera when backing up. Nissan notified Rogue drivers in phases and had dealers update the back-up camera settings for all affected vehicles at no cost.
In October 2021, Nissan recalled certain 2017-2019 Rogue Hybrid cars. Contact with the Electronic Control Module (ECM) bracket in these vehicles can cause damage to the engine’s harness, resulting in a blown fuse. Nissan dealers were instructed to install a cover to protect the engine harness. So far, these are the only official recalls impacting the Rogue. Neither recall has made mention of the widespread service brake issues impacting the 2019 Nissan Rogue, despite a series of complaints, investigations, and class action lawsuits against them.
