Q: Car not accelerating past 60 MPH

asked by on

When I drive my car for more than two hours, the car doesn't accelerate beyond 60 MPH.

Hi there, this is a common issue with Rogues around this time and usually has to do with heat. The transmission in this car has a heat sensor that doesn’t allow the fluid to get too hot. On long journeys, the sensor will trip and put the car into a limp mode, severely restricting acceleration. This should be taken to the Nissan dealership as it should be covered by warranty.
