    Ugh, I hate Nissan. I'd never buy a platformed shared Nissan. Dumbass Mitsubishi... come on...


    -Karl B. 2015 DE 5 speed x 2 and 2015 ES CVT. Plenty of other cars as well.

    Mitsu AWC is nice but pointless if your Mitsubishi Rogue's CVT grenades. Maybe I'm wrong and this is the year Nissan gets their Xtronic system correct. They've had 20 years to perfect the Jatco lol.

    Hopefully Nissan will let Mits take care of the CVT programming.

    What about a Kia Niro? Or is your wife adiment on having awd like mine is?

    I can't speak for how reliable they'd be with the fandangled hybrid setup and dual clutch transmission but they've been out for a little while now. And fuel economy numbers are pretty impressive. 50ish +mpg?

    I'd totally get rid of both my Mirages and strongly consider a Niro. Would have a longer range, better economy(in theory) and presumably a nicer vehicle overall. What could go wrong?

    Per my wife AWD or nothing. That or a Camaro and I can't afford her speeding tickets.

    For the purposes of streamlining manufacturing, I can't imagine it would be cheaper to have a Nissan engine mated to a INVEC III programmed CVT from Mitsubishi. I'm just guessing but it makes more sense, costwise, to put the Xtronic CVT in with a Nissan engine instead of having to research how a Mitsu programmed unit would mesh with a totally different engine. I hope your right though, that would be a piece of mind.
