Hello there, many different faults will cause your 2009 Nissan Rogue to have a vibration issue at higher speeds. The most common causes are wheel/tire balance, failed suspension components, wheel bearings, ball joints, or an engine mount. Vibration issues are not good long term for your vehicle so I recommend having this looked at soon. A qualified technician, such as one from YourMechanic, will be able to diagnose the vibration issues and perform any repairs required.
