Nissan CVT Transmission Problems

Nissan CVT issues are common among Nissan vehicles. Otherwise known as a continuously variable transmission, the feature was intended to increase the performance of vehicles by creating smoother gear shift capability. From 2012 to 2018, several models of Nissan vehicles received the transmission, including the Sentra, Versa, Versa Note, Altima, Rogue, and Murano models.

Some of the most common issues with the vehicles directly relate to the transmission. Reported issues include loss of power, transmission jerking, transmission slipping, CVT coolant hose leaks and failures, and a CVT error message being displayed. These problems call the Nissan CVT transmission reliability into question and can result in serious harm to unsuspecting drivers.

Nissan extended the warranty on some of these vehicles equipped with the CVT transmission from 5 years or 60,000 miles to 10 years or 120,000 miles. The extension covers repairs, replacements, and towing for issues related to the continuously variable transmission. For the warranty to be effective, vehicle owners must take their Nissan to a dealership for repairs.

If you believe Nissan CVT issues are causing problems for your vehicle, the first step is to make sure your vehicle is safe to drive. Take your vehicle to the dealership if the transmission is still under warranty or the warranty on your vehicle was extended. Ensuring the safety of all vehicle occupants is a priority.

If your warranty expired and Nissan chooses not to extend it, your best option may be to file a lawsuit. Several lawsuits have been filed against Nissan in recent years and many resulted in favorable outcomes for vehicle owners. Contact us to learn more.
