Nissan Transmission Problems Continue To Plague Drivers

November 20, 2017 By: LemonLaw Category: Nissan, Transmission

Nissans have featured the Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) for over a decade. The purpose of the CVT is to increase fuel efficiency and better the driving experience. But, for some reason 1 800 LEMON LAW continues to receive multiple claims from consumers who are struggling with Nissan transmission problems. We have handled claims across the brand including the Cube, the Juke, the Murano, the Pathfinder, the Rogue, the Sentra, and the Z, as well as one of the company’s most iconic models, the Altima.

According to a recent Car Complaints posting, many consumers have complained of Nissan transmission problems because of overheating issues Once the CVT overheats because of an inoperable cooling system, the vehicle will fall into a safe mode to protect it from any other damage. Afterwards, consumers can experience vibrations, shaking, shuddering, and then the transmission could ultimately fail.

Our firm has driven down this road many times—we have even written about Nissan transmission problems in the past. And for their part, Nissan has doubled their car warranties for certain vehicles according to a report.

If you are a consumer who is experiencing these Nissan transmission problems with the CVT, take your car back to the nearest Nissan dealer immediately for a repair with a service adviser. Make sure to highlight all issues you are experiencing, and if necessary offer to take the adviser on a test drive. After every repair visit, even if they say the car is operating to specifications, make sure you obtain an invoice. This will help build a claim against Nissan, which will help you receive fair treatment as a consumer.

If you’ve had repetitive visits to the dealer addressing your Nissan transmission problems, and/or your vehicle has been in the shop for an extended period of time, please email or call us, 1 800 LEMON LAW (1 800 536 6652). You could be entitled to a repurchase, new vehicle, or significant monetary compensation under State or Federal law. And best of all, help is 100% cost-free.

Now they are saying that is out warranty by 47000 miles for which I faxed them a report from a website stating that the warranty has been extended to 10 years or 120,000 miles and as of today 5/29/2018 they still refuse to fix.. please ..

    My wife has a 2013 Nissan Rogue that will lose acceleration on road trips after an hour to hour and a half in. The pedal can be floored but RPM’s and speed won’t go up. After the 1st occurence you have to shut the car off for about 5 minutes to get another 30 to an hour of acceleration before it happens again. We had to stop 6 times on what should have been a 5 hour road trip. Each time it happens can be very dangerous as speed limits were 75 and car would only top 60. I originally called the local “Trophy” Nissan dealership and was asked if i bought the car from there(we didnt) before being told all the service tech’s were busy. Then Nissan corporate customer service basically said there is nothing they can do and to take it in to get it diagnosed. I told them its because of their crappy CVT transmissions and i will be trading this POS in for an american made Ford who will actually recall when they make mistake’s.

    I have a 2016 Nissan Altima that I purchased new I just took it in to the dealership to have the transmission looked at as when I’m in a stop and go drive period the car would suddenly not want to excellerate and I would have to put the pedal all the way down to get it to go. I then would have to turn the car off to correct it each time this happens. The dealership told me that they did a diagnosis and said to me quote “Nissan is suggesting to go further into the transmission to see what the problem is and just to open the transmission up would cost me $650! And they still can’t give me a more accurate reason for the problem.

      I brought a 2015 nissian sentra for my granddaughter. We took the car to the dealer a couple of times. They said there weren’t anything wrong with it. It’s in the garage because sear’s sent her to a transmissuon shop. She was told she needs a transmission cist $3700-$3900. I called corporate office and was told i had to get it to a nissian dealer. What should i do? I am making monthly payments plus car insurance. There aren’t any transportation where we live and she has to drive 45 minutes to school.
