Acceleration and visibility problems are the top complaint issues received by the NHTSA from vehicle owners
The Rogue compact crossover SUV has been a top-seller for Nissan since its launch in 2007. In 2021, the company launched what they called “an all-new Rogue” that was designed to deliver high quality through technology, safety, and design. Without making many changes, Nissan set out to make the 2022 model more fuel-efficient, more powerful, and more fun to drive. Unfortunately, owners are experiencing acceleration and visibility problems. There are also two recalls, one of which increases the risk of a fire.

Most Common Problems with the 2022 Nissan Rogue
There are only a few complaints to the National Highway Traffic Administration (NHTSA) about the 2022 Nissan Rogue. These rank acceleration and visibility issues as the major problems.
But additionally, there are two recalls that highlight other problems. One is because of an improperly manufactured fuel tank. It’s extremely important for owners to be aware of the risks because a faulty tank will increase the risk of a fire. It also increases the risk of injury if the SUV is in a crash.
The second recall relates to an “inoperative” rearview camera display. When this is faulty, the driver’s rear visibility is reduced. This also increases the risk of a crash.

Problems with Acceleration
This is not a new problem for the Nissan Rogue. In fact, a loss of acceleration in the 2013 model is ranked one of the worst Rogue issues ever. A related acceleration issue, where the 2011 Rogue would stop while driving, was also a major problem.
Here’s what the owner of a 2022 Rogue from New Jersey has to say about the acceleration problem.
“I do not feel safe in my new car. There’s a problem with the turbo/acceleration.”
He explains how it won’t accelerate for 2–3 seconds when he pushes the gas. And when it does accelerate it “jumps forward fairly fast.” If he’s at a stop and ready to cross, and takes his foot off the brake when the car is going at only 1 mile an hour… then he presses the gas…”It’s as if it’s in neutral. The car won’t move forward for 2-3 seconds. It’s going to get me into an accident.
“For example, If I am at an intersection, and I cross and a car fails to stop at the stop sign… And I see them coming towards my car… I will not be able to move out of the way because of the acceleration problem.
“Or if I’m on the highway and am slowing down due to traffic ahead, and the car behind me doesn’t see and slams on their brakes and I see and hear it and look to my left and see no cars, I want to speed up into the left to avoid being hit by this car behind me….
“My car will not move and I will get hit anyway. I have a five-year-old son. I do not feel that he and I are safe in this car. Are all these new Rogues like this? If so, it needs to be fixed immediately!! Please help!”

Problems with Visibility
At face value the visibility issue doesn’t seem to be a hugely technical problem. But there’s a complaint on the NHTSA website that indicates it might be. It is reported quite simply as a mirror that shakes and vibrates. But the technicians can’t figure out how to fix it and a Nissan field engineer says it’s normal.
A new 2022 Nissan Rogue Platinum owner noticed that his side rearview mirror was very shaky when he drove home from the dealership.
“After speaking with my salesperson, I tried to fold the mirror in and back out again to see if that would help the situation. It did not. Whenever I drive at speeds as low as 20 mph, the mirror will shake and give a distorted view.”
The vehicle had less than 500 miles on the clock. So, he did what most owners would do, took into the dealership to see if the mechanics could fix it. They couldn’t!
“The technicians could not figure out how to fix the issue. The service manager drove my vehicle and confirmed the issue. Then, he drove another new Rogue on the lot. He found that Rogue to have the same issue. He contacted a Nissan field engineer who stated the issue is known and considered to be normal. I am unsure how it could be considered normal as the passenger mirror works as expected, but the driver’s mirror shakes and vibrates.”
2022 Recall Concerns
There are no NHTSA complaints relating to either of the recall issues. But we mention the fuel tank because there are parallels that relate to a similar recall for the 2021 model.
There were two recalls for fuel system issues in 2021. One caused supposedly by abnormal wear within the fuel pump. This, Nissan says, may cause it to overheat and fail, making it a crash risk.
The other is due to the possibility of the fuel hose disconnecting from the fuel tank. Even if it doesn’t disconnect completely, it can leak, which will be an increased fire risk. Another risk is that it can cause the engine to stall, which increases the risk of a crash.
The recall for the 2022 Rogue is due to an “improperly manufactured fuel tank.”
Once again, the dangers are leaks, the risk of fire, and the increase of possible injury if the vehicle crashes.
Recall information states: “Road debris may puncture the thin fuel tank wall, causing a gas leak and increasing the risk of a fire. In addition, the fuel tank may not perform as expected during a crash, increasing the risk of injury.”
