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 Cars.com 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.
