I'm looking at maybe getting this car pretty soon and read some reviews about it online and the reviews said that it had some difficulty with getting up to highway speeds because of the 4-cylinder engine. Has anyone else experienced this?

hey man, i don't own one, but any heavier vehicle with an untuned 4 banger is going to have slow acceleration. It'll make highway speeds no problem, it just won't do it in six seconds, that's all.

nissan rogue what year?

is that the 170 hp one with a 2.5L? itll get up to highway speeds no worries, but being a pretty heavy car around 2-2.5 tonnes prob itll take a while to get there

What size engine are you looking at. the 2.5L 170 break engine would be fine.

You are from the states, What is the highway limits out there?

you will be fine doing 100 kmph all day in that beast.

Never Underestimate a Japanese engine. they are solid.

not going over 20k. i need a small-midsize suv with plenty of cargo room and 4wd or awd.
#10
you will be fine man.

but if you are looking at cars in that kind on range you should look at BMW X5

Awesome vehicle...I have a 2008 SL AWD with the premium package...great in Canadian winters and everything...I have alwys been a Honda guy but we save about $6000 on the Rogue vs a similarily equipped CRV - cannot complain about a single thing...
#12
what do you want to use it for?
maybe it would be better to get a car like a VWGolf GTI

edit: it really all depends what your needs are

just for general use and so i can haul equipment to and from gigs and rehearsals. but i also want something that has value when i go to trade it in later
#14
well with my knowledge i don't think you've made a bad decision then -
the CR -v is another option but more expense in my country, there's the french options but they normally have great cars but cheapis plastic(dashboards and so on). maybe also check out a mitshubushi outlander but if it's not better go for that one i'd say
