It's a perfect experiment: CVT failure rate in the new Rogue vs. new Outlander! Too bad we'll never really know the true answer.
If someone really likes the Rogue, they should consider the Outlander. It's a very similar vehicle that comes with a better warranty.
On a personal level, none of this really matters to me. A CVT SUV is not something I would buy.
Technically, the Chrysler version of the engine is a bit different than the Mitsu one. The bottom ends are the same but everything on the top end is different.
-Karl B. 2015 DE 5 speed x 2. Plenty of other cars as well.
No one would say a Sebring is a rebadged Patriot????
Some reviews seem to think the new Outlander is a vast improvement. The same is being said about the Rogue.
Does the new 2022 Outlander seem more like former Outlander or the 2021 Rogue? Does it matter?
I am not a fan of Nissan. If the new Outlander was designed with Toyota, I would be more impressed. Anything associate with Nissan not so much. That's just me. Others can feel otherwise.
