Question: 2008 rouge engine failure 86,511 mi

at 66k the transmission went after I spent the $200 for the transmission inspection on the cvt trans,. and at 86,511 with no indication of any kind or warning the a/c stopped throwing cool air
car started jerking and bucking service eng. soon light came on and the rest of the warning lights came on and the car stopped. called the dealer and was told to drive it in but I had to have I tood in. dealer advised me the block was cracked. neither the dealer or Nissan will do anything to help me out as I still owe on it. filed a claim with Nissan north region but no satisfaction.

CVT transmissions aren't the most reliable units, a failure at 66k isn't unheard of.

If the AC stopped working prior to failure, it's likely do to the engine overheating. The engine computer will shut off the AC in this condition.

You may have simply just run out of coolant, or the water pump could have failed.


Whether a car is in or out of warranty, it's important to keep up will all the maintenance. An extended warranty is also a great idea when your car is out of it's factory warranty.

You may be able to get a better deal on a replacement engine by shopping around. See prices for a used unit etc

Good luck

the dealership did all the maintenance on the car since day 1. if feel they are responsible for not mainting the coolant level in the car. take the rad cap of and checking the fluid level and marking it ok without check the temp of the antifreeze is negligence on their part
