My daughter bought a 2016 Rogue for herself about a month ago and she really likes it.  I have been threatening to get a "winter car" for years but I haven't pulled the trigger.  We got rid of our 2008 Escape and now this summer it appears we have a 'vehicle shortage'... my oldest son is working for Samsung in Austin and my younger son will have a job here and my wife is pushing me to get something so everyone can function.  I can get a 2017 Rogue for 13-14k and it has what I need on it.  Other contenders are Jeep Cherokee (not the Grand), a Ford Edge, a Nissan Murano and maybe a Honda CRV.  No Chevy vehicles, no RAV4, no new Escapes and nothing "premium" like Acura, Lexus, Infiniti.  Anyone have any thoughts?  This is for simple transportation, some amount of room, a car for me to drive in snow when my Mustang would be out of the question.  Cheers & thanks.

I have a leased one. I don't love it, but for $13-14k I'd go for it.

There is a 2017 SV model close to me for $13k and it's only got 18k miles on it with a clean Carfax.  I like this car more than some of the others I mentioned.

No Chevy vehicles, no RAV4, no new Escapes

 

Why not these? 

 

Also, rented a rogue for several days last spring. Seemed to drive OK but the interior was quite cheapish IIRC. Didn't come away loving the car.

Looks like there are three levels: S, SV, SL, in that order.  The one I was looking at was SV but still had cloth seats, no sunroof, no bun warmers, etc.  To get that I would have to go to the SL which puts me in the $18-19k range.

 

I'm not into Chevy vehicles.  My daughter test drove a number of them and came away with the same feeling I usually have... they seem cheap and plastic.  She really liked the look of the Equinox but then test drove it and said it was terrible... drove poorly and seemed cheap.  I have 2 buds who drive the RAV4 and it's the same thing... it feels cheap.  The interior is not working for me.  On the Escape, I just got rid of one and I don't really like how the new one looks.  I also had one as a rental and did not care for it at all.  I'm a Ford person but I would rather have the Edge than the Escape but the Edge would get into a higher price range.

I'm casually in the market for something similar. I haven't driven one yet, but strongly considering a hyundai santa fe, or maybe a Tucson.

I looked at Rogues about 2 years ago and thought the interior was kind of cheap, ended up buying a Mazda CX-5 (touring edition) and have been really happy with it

Cherokee is a little small for my needs. Very capable, tho.  I've got the grand cherokee and have been quite happy with it.

Seems like so many new cars are like this. Not sure if it's an aesthetics thing or crash test thing.

It looks like Toyota is much better in reliability.

Man, I really like the new equinox. I’d drive one over a rogue in a second.

Parents have an 18 equinox, and I’ve driven a rogue as a rental. It would be far down the list for small suvs for me.

I meant to add this to my 'maybe' list.

Thanks but no Chevy vehicles.

Hey, to each their own. I just think it’s funny accusing their interiors of being cheap, and you’re considering a rogue. I agree with Murph’s assessment.

That not the same generation he's considering.

We love our Forestor. Very capable in snow and 33mpg on long trips. That doesn’t answer your question though.

Hey, to each their own. 

I think that's all it is.  Everyone's idea of luxury and "cheap" is going to be different.

 

I should also mention that I have been in a number of dealer loaners and rentals that seemed to be really, really cheapy-looking but they were decent cars.  I got an Accord from the Honda dealer and I feel like that's a high-end car made by a reliable manufacturer and it was really sparse and cheap-looking inside.

I test drove one for my MIL and really liked it. Good handling and pretty fun to drive

She went with a Ford Edge, which was a much smoother driving choice
