Emerson Firm, PLLC Announces Ongoing Investigation Involving Nissan Rogue

Feb 16 2021, Emerson Firm, PLLC announces a continuing investigation of a hugely significant issue involving the transmission system of Nissan Rogue vehicles. This matter relates to consumers who purchased or leased 2014, 2015, or 2016 Nissan Rogue vehicles.

If you purchased or leased a 2014, 2015, or 2016 Nissan Rogue then you may have claims that can be pursued.  It is believed that the transmission system in these vehicles is defective. Owners have reported a significant delay in the vehicle’s response while attempting to accelerate from a stop or while attempting to merge into freeway traffic, or pass another vehicle, which requires the ability to accelerate quickly. This delay in response is typically accompanied with reports of the engine revving while the driver depresses the gas pedal without little to no increase in vehicle speed. Vehicle owners have also experienced and reported stalling, jerking, lurching, juddering, and/or shaking while operating their Class Vehicles, as well as premature transmission failure.

These vehicles are equipped with a continuous variable transmission or CVT type of automatic transmission that does not use conventional gears to achieve the various ratios required during normal driving. Instead, it uses a segmented steel belt between pulleys that can be adjusted to change the reduction ratio in the transmission. This is supposed to occur smoothly and continuously. Like a conventional transmission, a CVT is electronically controlled by a Transmission Control Module or TCM.
