Rogue uses a combination of Continental and Gates belts in their setups (due to available sizes) which are used in a number of OEM applications.

Do you even understand what an underdrive pulley does? It is SMALLER in diameter so as to underdrive the accessories and not take as much power from the crankshaft. That means that you can't use an OEM length belt. The 2nd generation pulley setups in the DCT and 2009+ cars use a non standard double sided belt that is not readily available over the counter which is why all the companies besides AA decided to go another route in designing their pulley setups. AA decided to have some company make them a longer length double sided belt which apparantly has some reliability issues unfortunetly.

If your underdrive pully(s) are eating belts, the problem is not the belt. Gates belts are the best in the industry and supply Top Fuel with blower belts.
