Hi, I'm stuck between these two cars for my family of 4. Both have their pros and cons. I'm looking at either a 2015 Ford Escape (2.0L) Titanium w/ Tech package or a 2016 CPO Nissan Rogue SL /w Premium package. Both have similar miles and cost.
The Rogue is certified, and would come with a 3 year Carfax buyback guarantee, but all I hear are horror stories about their CVTs. I don't know if recent years have mitigated those concerns any. The Escape's engine is much better than the Rogue's, but the warranty wouldn't last as long, and I've read about issues with the 1st-gen Sync system.
