Nissan named in class action lawsuit over defective transmissions

Nissan Motor Corporation

Nissan-logo-loan large

This action arises from the sale or lease of more than one hundred thousand vehicles throughout the United States manufactured by Defendant Nissan that are equipped with defective transmissions. These defective transmissions were installed in all model year 2013 – 2014 Nissan Pathfinders sold or leased to consumers, including Plaintiff.

The defective transmission supplied in all of the affected vehicles is a continuously variable transmission (“CVT”) known as the “JATCO CVT8HT.” This CVT is defective in design, and as a result is prone to causing sudden, unexpected shaking and violent jerking (commonly referred to as “juddering” or “shuddering”) when a driver attempts to accelerate an affected vehicle. This pronounced juddering or shaking of the transmission prevents an affected vehicle from accelerating as intended by the driver, despite his or her input with the accelerator pedal. The combination of an affected vehicle’s transmission judder and its failure to accelerate according to driver input is associated with a “CVT belt slip condition” (the “defect”). This transmission defect creates an unreasonably dangerous situation and increases the risk of a crash; it is inevitable that an individual will be injured or killed due to a collision caused by this safety defect.

According to the complaint Nissan sold, leased, and continues to sell and lease the affected vehicle despite its awareness of the defect and the danger it poses to consumers and other drivers.

The class consists of All consumer residents in the United States who own, owned, lease, or leased a 2013 or 2014 Nissan Pathfinder.

My 2013 has lost power multiple times. Nissan tells me they can't duplicate and there are no faulty codes. I'm scared to drive my children to school.

The complaint spells out the same issues I'm having with my 2012 Nissan Altima. The dealership reset the sensor at the end of my warranty. Soon after my warranty expired the same problem cropped up and I was told Nissan would not honor the warranty even though it was the exact problem that they supposedly fixed at 58,000 miles. Nissan, and the dealership in Buena Park, CA, just wanted to kick the can down the road until the warranty expired and then washed their hands of me.
Issue is still not resolved. Dangerous condition when on the freeway with kids or clients in the car and I need to pull over to the side of the road. I have all my paperwork.

A year ago today I bought a 2013 Nissan altima and I am having to pay out of pocket to put a new transmission in my 2 year old car. Because I am over on the mileage Nissan will do nothing to help me. How does a transmission go out on a car with 70,000 miles on it. Aren't vehicles supposed to last for hundreds of thousands of miles. It's just not fair that I have to pay thousands to fix my car because Nissan put a defective transmission in it.

Kasi, mine it the exact same story! Bought the 13 nissan altima, maybe had 16k-20k miles on it. Have been without a car for over a month, transmission is shot and I couldn't get it anywheres. Actually thought I had gotten bad gas at first. Sputtered for about a week, next week never seen a sign of sputtering. The weekend b4 Thanks giving it gave out, car would not go in D, R, and you couldn't rev the car past 2 on the rpms. My car has 71,000 miles. I'm gonna be out of pocket over 5 grand and that's for a rebuilt tranny.

I had the exact same issue with my 2-year-old 2013 Nissan Altima! The transmission went out with no warning on the interstate, and almost caused a crash. The dealership told me that they had over 40 transmission problems with that year vehicle, and that THAT particular transmission was "rush designed" to meet government standards for more fuel efficient vehicles. I have had way to many unnecessary expenses due to this issue.

2008 rogue going in for cvt # 4 on monday
And all nissan will do is replace the cvt great right
But they are not fixing the cause of failures

So i guess a $4000 cvt is routine maintenance every 30,0000 miles
Nice Nissan real nice

I had the same issue with my 2014 QX 60 which was replaced under the lemon law with a 2015 QX 60. They assured me the issue was resolved in the 2015 models. Now my new one is doing the same thing. AND the loaner car they are letting me use while it's being serviced has the same shudder problem.

2013 Nissan Altima would start but when shifted into gear would kill the motor, did this several times, then drove but shuddered and died at several stops, it was Sunday so I took it to the dealership the next day. It drove fine on the way there, they said that they could not get it to duplicate and ran an update, it has not died since but shutters and jerks.

On February 11 2016 I brought my 2013 Nissan Altima in to McLarty Nissan service as it was performing poorly by hesitating and not going into gear correctly. I was told on that day that the ECM was reset and this resolved the issue. I was charged approximately 120 dollars for this service. On February 12 2013 my vehicle broke down on Interstate 30 the vehicle was towed back to the service department. This cost me 65 dollars for the towing, I feel I should be reimbursed for this as I was told the vehicle was repaired on the previous day. I was told by the service department that the vehicle required a new transmission and it would cost approximately 3900 dollars. There was no mention of this issue on February 11 2016. I was then encouraged by the service manager to trade the vehicle. I felt I had no further option at that time so I reluctantly agreed. I purchased the 2016 Nissan Frontier but was encouraged to buy another Altima which I refused to do. This put me completely upside down in my Altima as they only provided me 4500 dollars trade in. I was rushed through the finance process and not provided any information in regard to my interest rate. On February 13 2016 I was contacted via phone and left a voicemail by your finance person that the paperwork for my loan was not correct and needed to be resigned. I explained to him this was not possible as I was not in town. He then asked if it would be ok to add an additional 4.80 to my monthly payment. I declined this. I have purchased 3 Nissans from North Little Rock Nissan prior to McLarty assuming ownership. My salesperson Wafi Maheri has always been fair and easy to deal with. I have been a loyal Nissan customer but this dealer has changed my perspective on Nissan. I will not return to the dealer not even for service and I consider their business practice unethical. I will make an extra drive out of town to do business with another dealer. This will be the last Nissan I own. Unfortunately due to this dealers lack of empathy and unprofessional business practice the company has lost a loyal customer. My service records are on file and my Altima was never neglected.

We purchased a new 2013 Nissan Rogue. Most of our driving is highway driving, 84 miles r/t to work and back. During a family vacation enroute to our destination, our Rogue immediately lost power on an Atlanta freeway, causing the car to decelerate quickly down to 30 mph and the RPM's shot up to 5,000! We were scared to pieces! Busy freeway, 5 lanes of traffic, and our car loses power..... My entire family with small children were in the car at the time. We had to maneuver over to the side of the road, mind you with no acceleration and stop the car completely. This has continued regularly anytime we drive for more than an hour consistently. Doesn't matter if the temp outside is hot or cold. Stuttering upon acceleration to boot. I don't care for the comments I'm seeing about the outcomes so far. Can't say that I'm a big Nissan fan at this point. We have purchased 3 vehicles from Nissan in our family, probably won't again....

My husband and I purchased 2014 Nissan Altima's at same time. At 70,000 miles, his car's transmission needed replaced. At this point it was not covered by warranty and we paid almost $4,000 for new transmission. Now at 61,000 miles, my Altima starts having issues that seemed to be transmission related.Took car into Nissan. We were told there was not an issue, opted to get transmission maintenance. Brought the car home and sure enough, the next morning, the car clunked out. Returned car to Nissan and guess what, we need a new transmission in this car too. Totally unacceptable. What rights do we have legally? Do not want to put any money into having it replaced with same type of transmission, to possibly have same issue occur later.

I purchased a 2011 Nissan Sentra certified pre-owned in April of 2014. 6 months after buying the car I brought it to Nissan because of my car shaking when coming to a stop, they told me I had two broken axel's!! They weren't going to cover it under warranty until I talked to the service manager and he covered it. A few months later my car broke down because the throttle body became so clogged my car shut off on me going down 75. Had it cleaned out. Since then I have replaced my AC, my catalytic converter and my mass air flow sensor. I am not having to replace my motor mount and my transmission fluid is leaking somewhere in my car. My car has lost power to it. It has shut off on me 2 times last week while driving. Town Center Nissan insist that these are normal wear and tear things that happen and refuse to see the issue.

I bought a 2013 Nissan Alrima new. Around 50k miles the CVT transmission went started "shuttering." The dealership ended up catching the shutter during diagnosing the car. They replaced the transmission under warranty. It's not at 70k miles and same thing is happening on the new one except it's out of warranty and they won't do anything now. This is absolutely rediculous that the new transmission is doing the same thing and Nissan won't stand behind their product. The car should not be needing a third transmission at 70k miles. Is there anything that can be done?

My 2013 Altima's transmission just died at 90,000 miles. It started by dying while in Drive at a traffic light. had to tow the vehicle to a dealership and they could not duplicate the failure. Went home and the next day, while driving in the highway with my 10 year old son, the car slowed down to 10 mph and wouldn't move!!! real scary situation! Had to tow it again to the same dealership and they said they wouldn't cover it due to the car being outside warranty of 60k miles!

I have a 2012 Nissan Rogue. The problem has occurred 3 times. The problem described as incredibly slow accelleration (15 seconds to 40 mph) and top speed of 60mph. It happenned @ 17k miles, again @ 35k miles and now once more @ 72k miles. 1st Occurrence dealer worked for 2 weeks and claimed a fix. 2nd Occurrance Nissan Corp involved via Consumer affairs and they had the car for over 2 months and over 5k in repairs paid for by Nissan. However post fix transmission whined and gas mileage was forever impacted. I use to get 24 to 26 mph after that fix no more than 22mph. 3rd occurrance i'm taking back to dealer today 5/13/2016. I would like to see this class action lawsuite opened up to other models/years.

I bought a 2014 Nissan Altima SV in April 2014 by September 2015
The transmission started giving me problems, I brought it to Ross Nissan of El Monte they checked it and said there was nothing wrong with it a week later I brought it back with the same issues and they had to replaced the whole transmission, I didn't feel comfortable with the car after that and decided to trade it in for a 2015 Nissan Altima SL from Glendale Nissan thinking it won't happen twice, I was so wrong after seven months and only 11,000 miles this one started doing the same thing, so I took it to Universal city Nissan and they told me that the transmission had to be replaced.
I can't believe that 2 New cars had the same problem, I really don't want to keep this car .
I will never buy another Nissan.
Is there anything I can do?

I am having the same issue with my 2012 Nissan Altima. Jerky and slipping shifting. It almost stalled out on me on the highway. I took to Nissan and need a new transmission. When I called Nissan they were going to refer it and I will receive a call tomorrow. I don't expect much from them. They actually extended the warranty on my previous 2009 Altima for the transmission. The problem hasn't been fixed and I am out 3900 dollars for a new transmission on a car with 76000 miles. I should have stuck with Toyota.

I have a 2013 Nissan Altima purchased new for my wife. After a wreck shortly after getting the car, the transmission would stop running after receiving it back from the dealership with a clean bill of health. It took them almost three months to figure out that after it was driven at highway speeds for approximately two hours this built up enough pressure for the transmission to dump all the fluid out through a hose connection leading from the transmission cooler to the transmission itself. Finally we got the car back and drove it for over a year when I had a very minor bump into the rear end of another car. No problems were apparent until the same driving scenario was repeated less than 24 hours later. Since I now know the symptoms and cause of the problem back it went to the dealership. Now they claim this was an ongoing issue for which they are not responsible and the wreck had nothing to do with the transmission problem. The car is still under the factory warranty as well as the extended warranty but they are telling my insurance adjuster that they won't cover the repairs and want to charge me for a new transmission as well as close to $800 for towing charges. I will be calling the dealership in the morning to press the issue of this warranty. Considering they had recently replaced the air conditioning compressor as well as performing oil changes shouldn't this "on going issue" been noticeable when they had the car up on the rack? I paid $2495 for the 100K warranty which does include the transmission and have no intention of getting charged for what is obviously something covered by this warranty. If they refuse to honor this I will be pursuing this legally since I still owe 42 payments on this car.

My 2012 Nissan Versa CVT went bad and I had an extended warranty. But, the replacement trans went bad in 40K miles. I had it at the Dealer (Orr Nissan - 2014) with complaints of slipping before the extended warranty expired. The Dealer (Orr Nissan) said they could not duplicate the problem. The replacement trans went out after 40k miles of use and Nissan refused to warranty it. I paid out of my pocket big time.

We bought 2012 Nissan Quest new. We have gone through 4 set of tires, and now discovered we need a new CVT tranmission when we took it in for a simple fluid check. They didn't seem concern at my shock of needing a tranmission We bought other Nissans before but never went 4 set of tire or new a new tansmission before. We didn't get any help at all so very unhappy with Nissan's failed eustomer service. It seemed like they were more concerned with making a profit by installing a new transmission .

2014 Altima, 78,000 miles. Intermittently stalled out several times. Taken to dealership for outstanding recalls. After two days, Nissan says car needs a new transmission. Same CVT issues. Somewhere along the way Nissan ecame the majority shareholder in their transmission supplier according to dealership because they knew about the CVT issues. Now have a $5500 transmission replacement or a junk trade in.

I bought a preowned 2013 Nissan rouge 8 months ago. It now has 79k miles on it since I bought it. The car goes to a fail safe mode and does not accelerate. I almost got into an accident when my car wasn't moving and the light turned green the car behind me hit the breaks hard honked and cussed me for not moving. We need a class action for Nissan rouge 2013 and higher models since Nissan refuses to extend the warranty on some of VINs such as mine.

I purchased a New Nissan Sentra in 2013. Of course, I still owe money on it. However, I am not surprised because I expected to still be paying for it at this point , but what I wasn't expecting was for the transmission to go out on a car that is 3 years old. I called Nissan but as we all know, they fained escalation to a Nissan specialist who was no help at all. This car is dangerous as it jerks and does not shift gears properly. I was traveling on the highway with two 18 wheelers on my but ,and the car wouldn't shift gears to give me the power I needed. I was fortunate that I came upon and exit. Nissan has decided profit is more important than human life.

MAY 12TH, 9:18AM
So Nissan won't step up to the plate and fix my car. Just made my 37th payment this month and the transmission is gone. Warranty is 5/60k on power train I have 73k because I have a long commute. 90% of those miles are hwy too. SMH The thing is Nissan knows the CVT technology is not there yet as on previous model years they have doubled the power train to 10/120k. Just not on my 2013 Maxima, YET!! So instead of being proactive their being reactive. To see how much these CVT trannies fail go to YouTube and do a search and you'll see plenty of people filming their cars doing low mph with the gas pedal floored. So now with this fix out of my pocket my car becomes a 50k investment. Considering NISSAN I RECOMMEND NOT.

Same issue, was told my car has a transmission failure on a 2012 Nissan Versa. I only had the vehicle for 2 years. When I mentioned to the Nissan mechanic that this was a recall issue and when will Nissan resolve the problem he said "when they fell is the right time they reimburse those that paid for the transmission at a later date" I will not pay over $2000 for a recall that failed in their part. Nissan will fix their mistake.

I have a 2012 Nissan Versa that I just paid off which now is disappointing becauae I was told that I need to get my transmission fix! It's has the same issues with the Jerking and when I press the gas pedal all the way down it dosent move or it gets stuck at 40 or 60 miles on the freeways! I'm scared to drive it because it almost shut off while I was in the fast line on the freeway! And as I rushed off to the nearest off ramp it was jerking and shut off! I don't know what to do! I don't have anymore warranty on my car also because the miles.

Greetings, im speaking on behalf of my girlfriend, Yvette Stevens. She just purchased a 2015 nissan altima and the car is showing all of the recorded symptoms of this poorly engineered and unsafe transmission? We have been investigating online and found this to be off putting that we would be sold a 30,000$ death trap? If there is a way to pursue nissan in this law suit. We assuredly must know. If at all possible, please contact her back at the following information. She is well informed and coherent. If you cannot help us? Please point us in the direction of someone who could? We want are monetary property reestablished. This act of a multi billion dollar monster corporation to steal innocent bystanders money and well being through deceit is illegal. Period. Its illegal. Against the law. It is a punishable offense to knowingly and willingly to place a persons life in the danger of death in the pursuit of money? Is it not? Not only does she want her money back and reestablished into her bank account ,but would also need a firm admission to the truth of their knowing these transmissions ,these death traps, were intentionally sold to her with an apology by mouth. We do not want a paper apology. We need an apology by the ceo of nissans mouth, physical speaking apparatus. We are infumed with disgust and demand justice. Please contact us with any information of how we may help ourselves against this monster corporation, Nissan.

Thank you ,

I purchased my 2013 Nissan Pathfinder brand new after 2 days of having it I was experiencing this jerking of the car when I accelerated. I took back to the dealership and they said that was normal for the transmission. Now 3 years 70+ miles into this purchase my engine light is on and they are telling me my CVT/transmission possibly needs to be replaced. I have only had this vehicle for 3 years and I need BRAND NEW TRANSMISSION!! Unacceptable.

My 2013 Nissan Altima SV is not yet 3 years old with ~53K miles. 2 weeks ago, it shook and stalled when put in reverse or drive. After that just shook and felt like it was going to stall when stopping at a red light or stop sign. If I accelerated quickly it didn't shake as much. While driving, vehicle pulled. Nissan dealership could not replicate and returned the vehicle to me after a day. Same issue continued and they currently have the vehicle. After a week, contacted me to advise it needs a new transmission. The dealership seems to be surprised of these issues and has never experienced them before. I also had air bag issues from the time I purchased the vehicle. They are still not resolved. I was recently advised they are ordering a new transmission for my 2013 Nissan Altima. This has been ordered today. After reading all of the reviews, I am shocked and dismayed that Nissan hasn't offered a recall on the CVT. I have to say I was scared to drive my vehicle and now I am displeased in Nissan. I would not suggest or buy another Nissan. I do have to say the service department seems to be doing everything they can to resolve the vehicle issues. At this time, I would love to have what I paid for the vehicle and get a new one, which would not be a Nissan.

On Friday, August 12th I was driving from Schaumburg IL. to La Crosse WI with my daughter in my car and my son following behind as we were moving him back to school. The drive is about 3 hours and 50 minutes. The weather outside was high 80's and humid. Now let me first mention, I have not had any issues with my vehicle (2012 Nissan Altima 2.5S/CVT) except the standard maintenance, tire replacement etc in the 2 years I have owned it. About an hour into my trip on 90West I was in stop and go traffic on the expressway due to construction. When I went to accelerate from a complete stop the car would only go to 20 mph and thats with my foot to the floor and it took some time. The RPMS did not move,the car did not rev, there were no warning lights, no lights dimming on the interior and the temperature gauge was just where it should be. I thought it was just a fluke. When approaching the WI Dells about 2 hours into my trip and an hour and a half remaining, I was in the "fast lane" of traffic doing about 80 mph when I went to accelerate some more I noticed the same thing was happening. Only now my speed was rapidly decreasing. I moved over and got off on the nearest exit still attempting to accelerate, I pulled into a gas station. I was hesitant on shutting the car off not knowing what was happening. I called my brother and described the event I had experienced. He advised to shut it down thinking maybe the system just needed a reset. I waited 20 minutes and advised my son that we would stay in the "slow" lane in case this happened again, this way it wouldn't be so hard to get to the shoulder. Car started right up and went the last hour and 30 minutes with no problem. However it took nearly 5 hours to get there. The car sat at the hotel we were staying at all night. In the morning of the 13th I did short trips in it to move him to his dorm, go get lunch and attend a meeting near campus. Car was just as it always has been.

About 4:00 pm CST I got on the 90 east to head home. Still the same 3 hour 50 min 248 mile trip. Weather outside was mid 80's not as humid as the day before. Got to about 1 hour and 30 minutes from my home in Schaumburg doing 80/85 mph, but now in various construction areas that do NOT provide a shoulder, and sure enough my car starts to lose acceleration while I am trying to accelerate. Im in the "fast" lane and NOONE would move over. I have 2 lanes of traffic to cross over to get to the shoulder with cars and semi's flying up on me but my car wont move fast enough. I have NEVER been so scared in my life. I finally get to the shoulder, turn the car off and call my brother that its doing it again. He is stumped on what it could be since there are no warning lights on the dash and all gauges are where they should be. He said to let it sit and try to get on the road again. There is nothing worse than sitting on the shoulder where the speed limit is 70 mph and cars, trucks and semis are doing about 80/85 and Im in the middle of nowhere, WI with hit or miss cell phone connection. I let it sit 10 minutes, as I go to start it again something clear started dripping on my right foot. I didnt care at this point I wanted to get my car home and parked AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. Drove the last hour and a half, no problems.

All day Sunday I researched this issue I was having online. Thats where I found out these cars are still built with the same defective CVT transmission Nissan America was sued over earlier which caused them to extend their power train warranty thru 2010 models. They are currently active in a class action lawsuit for this issue in their Pathfinder, Frontier and Xterra.

I called my local Nissan this morning and spoke to a Service Advisor. He advised that my car is out of warranty because it is a 2012 with 81k miles. I said but Nissan is fully aware now they are putting defective transmission in these vehicles. They can no longer use that "EXCUSE" as they did in the first lawsuit. He advised that I call consumer affairs and start a claim. I said but will they do anything without it being diagnosed as this even though you and I both KNOW this? He said no, they will probably have you come here anyways. I said, "So you all are going to make me pay the $125.00 - $150.00 to hook my car up to a machine to look for codes that you and I BOTH know wont exist? Then you will test drive this vehicle, and it wont act up since I am in the beginning stages of this faulty trans vs the later stages when it is more frequent?" He said, "yes". I said, "What is it going to take, me getting to the later stages and thinking I have time to make a left hand turn at a light thinking I have enough time to cross, but then my car either dies or wont accelerate then I get T-boned which could be fatal to myself and those in my car or those in the other car?" I said, "We both know what this is so dont play dumb with me!" He agreed this is probably the case and stated, "We see A LOT and I mean A LOT of these". My car is being dropped off tonight. I have given permission for them to hook up their 20 second computer to search for codes that dont exist... I've also given permission for an employee from the dealer to drive it to their house over night (8/16) with the computer attached HOPING this failure to accelerate happens. I told the service advisor we both know this is a waste of time seeing that time and outside weather play factor in this as well, today is cloudy and mid 70's, but I will play their little game and then proceed with Nissan consumer affairs as well as filing a report with the Illinois Attorney General, NHTSA, my local news channels who just LOVE this stuff, and seeing what i can do to start a class action lawsuit so those who are stuck with 2011 and later can get this covered. I will post to every social media sight and do whatever legwork necessary just to get people on board. Pacific Gas and Electric Company of Cali thought Erin Brockovich was bad... she had no legal experience. Ive completed my paralegal certification and know just where to look and dig. Poor Nissan... too bad precedent has already been set.

The worst part of all of this... even with a replacement CVT transmission I will eventually have the same issue again. I want them to take this car back!

I received a call from my service advisor this morning my car threw 2 codes. P0744 and P0826.... end result: I need a new transmission. I called Nissan consumer affairs and started my claim. They advised a regional associate will contact the dealer and I should hear something no later than EOB tomorrow 08/17.

My 2013 Rogue has the same problems. At 62,000 I was told by 2 different Nissan dealerships I need a new transmission. Nissan regional advisor denied my claim for Nissan to pay for repairs because I was over the 60,000 mile warranty. I had over 26 different codes come up. Poor customer service for a well known problem. I am now upside down in my loan and will loose thousands of dollars when I trade the car in.

I have a 2008 Nissan Rogue with 121178 miles. My father bought me the car in October of 2007 brand new. In November 2015 I took my vehicle to our local dealership to figure out why my car was shaking whenever I would accelerate. They did a diagnostic test and ruled it out as me needing tires and brakes. December 2015 after fixing the brakes and replacing my tires the problem still proceeded to happen. I went in last Saturday for the same problem only to be told that my transmission has failed and I am past my warranty period. I don't have 3,960 to fix this problem and by the looks of this thread it doesn't even seem worth it because more then likely it will happen again. Very upset with Nissan for not owning up to their CVTs . Instead they make it a great inconvenience for the average consumer. I want to join the lawsuit!

Yes, my 2013 Nissan Versa has some kind of transmission issue, occurred only just after the extended warranty of 100,000 miles, it now has 104,000 miles so Nissan refuses to help. They said since it's after the extended warranty and because we didn't have it serviced with them whenever it had issues in the past they are unable to help. Now we have a lemon with 3 years of payments on it. This company putting defective, cheap transmissions in the cars is basically fraud. This car whines and makes horrible sounds when shifting gears and shows extremely high rpm at low speed. Can't drive it anymore because we don't know when it'll lose power completely on the road. Absolutely worthless car. It's worth noting this car constantly needs the heat shield replaced too. After putting in a new one it just falls off again a few months later.

Tes, I am having an issue w my2011 Nissan Rogue. I bought this car in 2013 with 48000 miles on it. I bought an extended warranty on it as well. I am driving from Michigan to Georgia with my daughter when I heard this loud metal clashing. I was in Tenesse when this thing happened. The car would not accelare even with the gas pedal on the floor. The rpm reached 5000 ,car would not do anything but shudder. I am driving on 175 south and a semi almost hit me and my daughter because the car stalled on me , would not accelarate. Good thing I was able to make an exit to Clinton , TN,since the car became very unsafe to drive. I have to wsit till next morning before I can contact Ted Russel Nissan dealership.The service mgr was able to diagnose that it was the transmission causing it. I have the car towed 24 miles where I was , and thru diagnostics, it was confirmed CVT transmission need to be replaced. It will cost me $5000.00 w/c I have no funds for. I called regional consumer affairs to plead my flight, I was told repeatedly that they cannot do anything since it was out of warranty. That it is the responsibility of the consumer to pay for the repair. I hope there will be a class action lawsuits against Nissan since there were so many complaints , accidents due to CVT transmissions.

My 2013 Nissan Altima only had 35,000 miles on it when the transmission had to be replaced by Nissan under warranty. It would shudder and jerk and stall at low speeds creating a safety hazard. After picking up my car with the new transmission in it, the same problems are occurring. This car is not safe to drive, it jerks forward when in traffic at low speed almost hitting the car in front of me. When driving speeds over 25mpg, the RPMs move up and then back down very quickly. The dealer has yet to duplicate this on the replaced transmission. The car is not throwing any codes for diagnosis, even though it's doing the same thing as the first transmission. The car only has 38,000 miles on it. I still owe over $13,000 on this car and do not feel safe driving it. My dealer is trying to help me, but can not do anything unless they can duplicate it. I think this transmission needs to be recalled and replaced with a new version without this defect and Altima should be added to this lawsuit! Is Nissan waiting until someone is killed like Toyota did?!

I purchased my vehicle at 49, 000 miles had no problem with it until a couple months ago when my vehicle started to shake, at times violently, when I attempted to accelerate at a red light or after turning a corner. I reported this problem to Nissan when my vehicle was at 59,000 and I expected a solution but did not receive anytime of help. They kept stalling until the now where the car has 61,000 miles and they say there is nothing to do but pay over $3,000 for a vehicle that I've had for less than a year. I purchased the vehicle for $24,000 after financing and adding another 3,000 to the bill just seems outrages to me. I repeat again, that the car shakes whenever I attempt to accelerate.

I bought a Nissan Altima 2013 fifteen months ago. The transmissioon totally failed and the dealership is asking $4500.00 to replace it. Nissa USA denied to help in any way with financial burden because the car has 87,000 miles. 98% of these are highway miles in FL which is totally flat. I am a 62 year old who takes good care of the cars and is not drag racing with it. Over the years have had many othrr cars and never had a problem like this. The car stahled in a highway and almost got rear ended by a semi-trailer. There is a big safety issue with these cars and Nissan is not being responsible with it. I do want to file a lawsuit. What I am gooing to do with a car that I owe over $9000.00 and can't be driven or trade in? These cars give no indication that the transmissions are failing until is too late. Regular mechanics can't detect or repair because Nissan has everything under their control and charges ridiculous amounts to repair them. Something needs to be done. Very sad situation for the owners of these cars.

Nissan Rogue 2012. 75K miles - timing chain failure. Dealership as well as independent mechanic are asking for over $2K in replacement fees. It is unheard of to replace a timing chain! Even a timing belt is handling longer!

I was driving my 2013 Nissan Rogue on the freeway doing about 75 mph. I was on my way home from work, when all the sudden I heard this whining noise coming from my engine and I started slowing down. The car decelerated so fast I was almost run off the road by an 18-wheeler that was right behind me. I had to veer to the right to get onto the shoulder of the road to avoid what could have potentially been a horrible accident. After that my vehicle wouldn't go any faster than 35 miles an hour. It kept shuddering and vibrating and whining. When I got to the off-ramp, I made it to the stop sign, and then the car wouldn't even go. People were honking at me and yelling at me, and I finally had to ask the guy behind me to help me push it out of the way. It was 10 o'clock at night and I was sitting on the side of the road on a dark two-lane highway. There's no reason for my car to be acting like this with only 72000 miles on it. This is BS and the dealership won't help me. Now I have to come out of pocket to fix my transmission? It sounds to me like they planned it this way. Not only are they selling hundreds of thousands of vehicles, now they're selling hundreds of thousands of Transmissions. At $4000 - 5,000 a pop, I'd say they're making a killing at our expense.

I purchased a used 2014 Nissan Altima the end of April 2015 from Enterprise Car Sales. I was told they did such a thorough inspection of all of their vehicles that the car was in great condition. In October 2015, with approximately, 61,000 miles on the Nissan, it started randomly hesitating. I would push the gas pedal but the car would not accelerate. I took it to the Nissan dealership and they could not find a problem. A few days later, I was pulling out from an intersection and I pressed the gas pedal and the car would not move!! I barely made it home. I took it back to the dealership and was told it needed a new transmission, $3400 and that the power train warranty had just expired at 60,000 miles. I called Nissan North America consumer affairs and filed a claim to see if they would cover a new transmission. After about 5 or 6 days, I received a call back and was told NO, they would not cover or help pay for a new transmission. I asked if they were aware of all of the problems with these CVT transmissions, the rep said they had problems on previous year and model vehicles but not on the 2014(s). Obviously, there are still problems!!! A 2014 vehicle should NOT need a new transmission!!! I ended up trading the vehicle in and losing around $6000 due to this!!!!

I purchased a 2010 Nissan Rogue and took it to Nissan to check it out because It wasn't driving right. They told me that I had like all the other reviews Transmission failure. Of course they said it was out of warranty and that it would cost over 3,000 to fix it. I don't have money like that I'm waiting/hoping to be approved for for disability. So I reached out to Nissian Corprate praying that they would do the right thing. Well my story is the same as everyone else. They refused to do anything holding on to their excuses saying it's out of warranty. What about the safety of others? They knew these vehicles were and still are unsafe but because they are so greedy and don't care they are refusing to do the right thing. I surly and definitely want to be included in any lawsuit further complaints etc. This has got to stop! Millions of lives are in danger while they are sitting behind their big Corprate desk and do nothing while many innocent lives are in danger. Please Please someone do something to keep us all safe on the roads. God help us!!!

We bought a 2013 Nissan Altima 2 years ago with over 37K miles, we never had any problems or any codes that came up. Until Aug 26, 2016 with over 77K miles. I was driving on the freeway and every time I would accelerate the car wouldn't go, I lost acceleration and the car jerked as I was driving. When I got a red light, the same thing happened, I stepped on the gas to go and the car wouldn't go, finally it started picking up speed slowly, I was able to get safely to my destination. This is something that happened all of a sudden, prior to this day, the car didn't show any signs of trouble, no lights or codes came on. The next day we tried moving the car and the same thing happened, but this time the 'check engine' light came on. We were able to check the code which is the "pressure unit G" sensor. We called Nissan to find out how much it would be to fix, and they said to bring it in, run a diagnostic first, in other words they would not take our computer reading, they need to do it themselves. From all the previous testimonies, sounds like Nissan will NOT pay for this damage. We will bring it in and get it checked, I will type another update on this issue. Is not fair that we are stuck with a loan making payments and Nissan does NOT do anything to help it's customers.

I have a 2014 nissan 4dr 4x4 sl pathfinder bought new. I've had every problem you could imagine. The interior and exterior is falling apart. Electrical is malfunctioning. Tail gate door crushed me. Transmission is slipping. Won't start sometimes. Won't unlock sometimes. Has become a danger to me and my 4 children and my husband. My interior trunk door snapped the first 6k miles. Had to get my gas reader fixed once already before 15k miles. My car is at 28700 miles and it's falling apart more and more each week. I've contacted nissan corporate but they don't sound like they wanna help. All they tell me is take it to the dealer. I'm afraid my car would take make the 1 1/2 drive. They didn't even update my address when I updated it and when I updated it a second time they then decided to tell me there's a recall part. The air bags where the issue!!! So I have so many issues now It would take me forever to type them all up. I have spent so much in gad and put so many of my miles on the car having to drive it to a dealership it's maddening. I want my money back. This car is a piece of junk. And I'm not even half way to getting everything fixed on it cause it be days worth to do.

I have a 2011 Nissan Rogue (my wife drives) that began having intermittent issues (at around 55,000 miles) when driving at freeway speeds, that would restrict going the speed limit even when the gas pedal was pushed to the floor.

Since it was intermittent, and only happened when on 2 longer trips so we didn't take it immediately because it wasn't happening when my wife was driving around town, and we thought it may have fixed itself.

It didn't.

Recently on a 2,500 mile road trip it happened the constantly. When I talked to the dealership in the next town, he said its a huge and common issue where the CVT transmissions are failing and need replacing. He has been happening all summer with Nissan Rogues.

Since we had our reservations and plans set, we continued on planning to pull over and let the transmission cool, as advised by the Nissan Service Tech and continue on. It was the worst! Very scary at times!

I took it in to my local mechanic, I trust, to have them check it. And sure enough the Transmission needs replacing but the warranty ended at 60,000 miles. It now has 70,000 so I am stuck paying for it.

Searching the internet I've found this is a common issue with the Rogue and Nissan actually extended the warranty on models up to 2010. Since mine is a 2011 it's not covered. Even though it sounds like the problem is as prevalent as it was on previous years, if not more so.

This is too common, and proves Nissan is selling faulty transmissions and not backing up they're product!

This car has always had a loud whine when it accelerates and the heat shield rattles. These are annoying but not dangerous. The Transmission failure is dangerous and Nissan should recall their faulty transmissions that leave their car owners exposed to being rear ended at high speeds on the freeway, because the transmission overheats and loses power! If they don't I will be the strongest voice I can be against NISSAN.

CVT TRANSMISSION. I was at the intersection of Page Ave and Seven Up Drive in Overland, MO, and my car stopped. I started the car back up and park the car in drive and it rolled backwards. I put the car back in park, put on my hazard lights, and called roadside service. My daughter (7yrs) and I were terrified. Cars were a few 100 feet from hitting us. I was constantly waving cars to go around my car. The Overland Police finally arrived (1 hour later) and pushed my car to a safer location so it could be towed. My car was later towed to the Nissan dealer where it was diagnosed. The diagnosis was that my CVT (transmission) needed to be replaced.

My wife purchased a used 2014 Altima with very low miles 2 years ago. Last month the car was acting up while she was driving through Tracy CA on her way home from work. She called me and she was in a panic. It stalled twice and was showing all the minor symptoms CVT failure which we had no idea of at the time. I drove to her location and then drove it to the Tracy dealership where we purchased close by. It was very low on gas. The service department was closed Friday evening so they couldn't diagnose it until Monday. They wanted to charge me $150 at which time I got very upset so they waived the fee. I called them Monday evening and they said they added gas, test drove it and diagnosed it and could find nothing wrong. They wrote it off as bad gas. We filled it up with premium gas and it seemed to be fine until 2 days ago when it started showing the same symptoms again. We thought it was fuel related so we again filled it up with premium and I added a fuel injector cleaner. Yesterday my wife texted me and stated it was acting up again on her way to work. I told her to meet me at the dealership after work. I arrived there before her and she called me in a panic while drive from work. It was revving very high RPM, almost stalling, chugging, and she was petrified. I stayed on the phone with her until she got to the dealership. I insisted that someone test drive it immediately and they complied. A service tech test drove it and I was in the passenger seat. We no sooner left the parking lot and it stalled and started revving very high. He almost crashed trying to get back in the parking lot. I was very upset but maintained my cool. I let the service manager know that this car is dangerous and they subjected my wife to danger and they better give me a new CVT and I'm still under warranty. He said they had to run another diagnostic so I'll be finding out today what their prognosis is. Nissan better make this right. I'll be making a lot of phone calls and taking a lot of action if they don't. These transmissions are dangerous and someone is going to get killed if the haven't already.

my 2013 Altima CVT failed after 60,128 miles at just before it was 2 years old. had the so called extended warrantee LOL what a joke!
the warrantee company (3rd party) said we will replace it for free (junk yard part) however it will be 4 to 6 weeks. dealership said we could use the money from warrantee and apply it to a refurbished CVT by Nissan and I would have to pay 6k but installed in 2 days. with needing a car a rental would cost about the same amount for the 4-6 weeks plus I still would have to pay the car loan. ended up paying the 6k (borrowing from father-in-law)in a certified refurbished CVT.
I now have 115k miles on the car hoping I make it to where the loan is paid off on this CVT but don't think I will.
I am never buying another NISSAN you can count on that!

My girlfriend and I bought a used 2014 sentra with just under 10000 miles on it from Nissan of Oxnard CA. At first everything seemed fine for a typical used economy vehicle until i started noticing that something was just not right with the transmission. I ask my girl if she had noticed anything and she said she had also. I didnt think much of it at first but it got worse with it shifting in an odd manner. So we took it to the dealer and at first they said they needed to replace a "part" and later decided to replace the whole transmission. Which i thought was odd but since its under warranty i figured it was just a freak occurance and Nissan knows what they're doing and im gonna give them the bennifit of the doubt. After we got the car back we drove it for a couple thousand miles until one day this transmission started showing very different signs, subtle at first but potentially far worse. At this point, i know from past experiences dealing with mechanics, that unless i can make the car do what im complaining about on command theyll say its just fine and ill lose credibility. So we kept driving the car all the while paying very close attention to it and thats when it happened. We were on a canyon road and the transmission began to act so violently i thought it was going to fall out from under the front of car with all of the violent shuttering and shaking that would happen with every tap of the gas peddle. Now, we were on a canyon road with nowhere to pull over or stop and there was traffic on both lanes of this two lane road. my girl whos riding with me is scared out of her mind and crying while im doing my best to keep us from getting in a accident or killed. We got through the canyon and limped this death trap vehicle to a friends house and called Nissan imediately and told them what just happened and the following day they had it flatbed towed the the dealership and put yet ANOTHER transmission in the car. This current transmission is already showing signs of failure with its inconsistant jerky shifting and i cant stand this vehilce anymore what so ever. I want out of this vehicle and the finance contract my girl and i have with Nissan under the California lemon law. I will never buy any Nissan product ever again or recommend Nissan to anyone i know ever. To extend the power train warranty to 60000 or to 120000 miles to put a bandaid on incorrectly designed component is and insult to the public and saftey hazard. If theres a class action law suit I WANT IN. This is all true and and documented with Nissan of Oxnard. And just like i told the sales guy i happened to see when it was getting the first transmission replaced , this is the worst car ive ever bought. Thank you

I have a 2013 Nissan Sentra SR and at 76,000 miles start having a transmission issue/motor issue. Nissan informs me nothing is wrong. Go to my mechanic and he tells me my motor mounts are junk. I go back to dealership and tell them to fix the problem and they look at me like I am stupid and don't know what I am talking about. Finally they call warranty to fix motor mounts. And I tell them there is a issue with the shifting of gears. There is no problem it's not putting up any codes. Well lets see it's jerking, hesitating, motor revives way to much. $4k to fix it and extended warranty wont cover it. What is the deal with Nissan selling people warranties and not honoring it.


Emmanuel L. said

after the vehicle is started, as the transmission is shift in gear on D, there is a slow acceleration, and then a sudden involuntary high acceleration without pressing the gas pedal more. That can cause accidents.
At high way speed, the transmission looks like it looses power. Also the wind can move the vehicle right and left as it becomes too light. Also the car is definitely unstable while bouncing as a result of defective struts mounts from the manufacture and factory defected lower control arms.

I have been battling with Nissan for two and a half years to get my transmission replaced after multiple catastrophic breakdowns on the freeway. I first took it in three years ago after whining started while climbing hills on hot days after several hours of freeway driving. Was sent home as if I was a crazy person. Finally they were able to "verify/duplicate" with error codes after multiple attempts and several attempts at trying to get help from Consumer relations. Nissan Corp was horrible and unethical.

I previously commented on this site 2 months ago, my 2013 Altima needed the CVT transmission replaced at 38,000 miles. It is now 5,000 miles later and it is again at my dealership having the transmission replaced again. This is a very dangerous car, numerous times I accellerated into an intersection, only to have the trans skip and not move forward, then eventually kick in. When traveling on the highway with cruise control on 65 mph, the RPMs were jumping up and down like the transmission was trying to shift, I went to pass a car and once in the passing lane, the car would not accelerate.

We have a 2006 Nissan Pathfinder, I was driving up hill and lost power, car slowed down to 30mph on a 70mph freeway, the transmission wouldn't engage. It was scary, my kid in the back seat and semi's coming up on us fast.
I contacted Nissan, and because our Pathfinder has 119K miles on it, they will not do anything. Apparently there was a class action lawsuit, which could have covered this problem.....however we were NEVER notified. This is a huge safety concern and a very expensive problem to fix. I don't know what my options are, other than continuing to complain about the problem, which honestly is a lot of wasted effort. The worst part of all of this is we bought the Pathfinder from a Nissan dealer, how horrible they knew about these problems and NEVER mentioned it. I mean, I can't make my radiator leak into the transmission.......whose design was this anyway? Frustrated beyond expression.

At around 35,000 miles the transmission started shaking and jerking when ever I stepped on the gas pedal to accelerate from a dead stop. at around 50,000 miles I asked at the Dealership what could be done about the problem. They told me to have the transmission fluid changed. That it would solve the problem if I did that.

Come to find out, the 2016 Rogue is on the recall list for faulty airbag deployment and not being able to decipher whether a child or adult is on the passenger seat,prohibiting the air bag in the event of a crash!!!We were told that OUR specific Rogue wasn't recalled.However,we couldn't be assured by Consumer Affairs that we wouldn't experience the same defects as the Nissan Rogues that were!!We expressed our concerns for the safety of our family, and unborn,and requested a "buy back".Of course,they refused...STEER CLEAR AND DO YOUR HOMEWORK BEFORE LISTENING TO THE LYING AND EVASIVE LIPS OF NISSAN CAR SALESMEN!!

I bought a 2014 Nissan pathfinder on 05/08/2014, and around 81k miles the transmission gave up! We have 5 year warranty for 60k, i contact Nissan and explained to them if i can't drive my car anymore,because of transmission problem. Nissan respond me after 1 week by say no, and say it's out of warranty becouse it's already passed 60k even though I still under of 5 year warranty. I have not driven my car since last 2 week till today. The cost of transmission repair cost about $4597, and every month I still have to make that stupid monthly payment and Nissan doesn't seem to care!
According to the complaint Nissan sold, leased, and continues to sell and lease the affected vehicle despite its awareness of the defect and the danger it poses to consumers and other drivers.

The class consists of All consumer residents in the United States who own, owned, lease, or leased a 2013 or 2014 Nissan Pathfinder.

Just bought my 2015 Nissan Sentra SV at Findley GMC because we know the salesman and managers there. We put half the price of tge car down in cash. We bought it used with 22000 miles. After not even a month into having it the check engine light came on while visiting my grandson. Went off in 2 days. Came back on a few weeks later and made the almost hour drive to Nissan and they were rude and said they couldn't get to it to bring it back. We work and do not have time or money to keep running back to Nissan. Now 6000 miles later still issues with the transmission lacking power, feeling like it will die and only having a couple thousand miles left on warranty, took it to the dealership where we bought it and said I don't feel safe driving this car. They devided to take it to Las Vegas where they take the Nissans they get in. One week later receive a phone call from dealer and was told the transmission was replaced. What?! And they had another petson that bought the same car the same time we did with the same issue. Now if they replaced the tranny with the same kind, what if it happens again? I want out of this car. Its not safe. What can we do?

I purchased a 2013 Nissan Rogue last year. It have the same problems with accelerating as the above mentioned. If I drive more than an hour, the motor begins this high pitched whistling and will not acceralte past 60 miles per hour. Then when I pull over and press down on the petal to accelerate after being at a light, it will barely move and only pick up momentum very slowly. Not to mention my paint is chipping all over the car which Nissan claims dept. will do nothing about because it's past warranty. This is a 3 yr. old car, the paint job should be in excellent condition still. I've had a Mercy sable for 12 yrs. and the paint job was perfectly in tact. At this point it is nearly 35% clean peeled off the hood and a huge part of the primer exposed on my door the size of the rear view door light, (like an average size pancake). I am so discussed by the quality and customer care. I will "never" buy another nissan again!

I bought a 2013 Nissan Altima 3.5SV almost two years ago with almost 49K miles on it. Not even owning a vehicle for a month, I noticed a violent terrible jerking, shuddering on this vehicle. The same complaint I have seen consumers report on. The best way to describe is driving a stick shift and letting go of the clutch where your vehicle feels like stalling. I have taken to dealerships on multiple occasions. They can't fix because there is apparently no code present in order to determine the problem. There needs to a recall or fix for this nationwide transmission problem with Nissans. It's disgusting that nothing has been done. I have been a Nissan owner for nearly 15 years and I cant wait ot get rid of this car and switch. Never again. I hope you lose enough consumers to take seriously when about the obvious transmission problems people are having with their Nissans

I purchased a Nissan Rouge back in 2013 and ever since I thought it was the car of my dreams. However, recently it has become a nightmare! My family and I love to travel and on a recent trip the Rouge lost power and acceleration, I didn’t seem to think much of it until it happened again and again. So much so that I thought it was the battery however, after doing a little bit of research online I found out that it was the CVT transmission that were installed in current Nissan models (Rouge, Altima, Pathfinder, etc.). Hundreds of customers have complained about loss of acceleration while driving on the highway or long distances. Some have even called the manufacture and complained about the issue with little to no avail in resolving the issue.
Even though customers have complained and complained time and time again they are getting the urn around with manufactures and dealers stating that it’s a part issue and it’s on backorder. As a mother this is simply unacceptable! Your cover up towards this issue is endangering my life, my kid’s life, and others on the road as well.
Your slow approach has prompted hundreds of customers (myself include) to take action against Nissan into our own hands before someone gets seriously hurt or killed. We are going to write to every local and national news organization to bring this problem to light and get all of these unsafe cars off the road.

2015 Nissan Altima purchased in March 2015 with 88 miles on it even though the dealer lied and stated that it only had 4 miles on the odometer reading statement with the purchase agreement .
This is one of the worst cars I have ever own. We bought this car brand new from Cannon Nissan of Jackson Mississippi. Our salesmen name was Juwon O. I must say these ppl are nothing but crooks. I gave Juwon $1000.00 cash for my downpayment for a 2014 Maxima, but ended up settling for the 2015 Altima since Juwon stated that it came with a rebate. So after going with the altima I found out that Mr.Juwon POCKETED my down payment and only used the rebate that came with the car! I asked why didn't the paperwork show the down payment that I provided and he asked what downpayment?? I have contacted the BBB about this and they said I don't have proof that I gave him the money since I didn't receive a receipt.. i called Juwon and recorded him and the salesmanager Anthony Chapman as they tried to cover up what was done. I also have on tape Bill Johnson who is the Dearship manager trying to tell me that my car came with a 1250.00 dollar rebate and went on saying that I DID put 1000.00 dollars down . He stated that on my contract where it is labeled rebate 2250.00 is also including my 1000.00 dollar down payment!! Which is a LIE! not only have we been conned out of 1000.00 dollars now we are stuck with a nissan with transmission issues, rear spoiler had to be replaced, wheel bareings..The Bluetooth just disconnects for no reason. There's a loud whinnin sound coming from my power steering... Gas gushing around loudly in the tank.. air bag/seat belt light comes on and off if even if i have no passenger. This car is so dangerous You can press the gas and count to 3 and the car will all of a sudden blast off ! and it's not even over a year old.. It stalls at stop signs or stop lights and in stop and go traffic.. its so annoying and very scary at times ...It vibrates and shakes as you try to accelerate pass 30-40 miles per hour. And if your in stop and go traffic that CVT goes freaking nutts!!! I'm sick of it. I have contacted Cannon Nissan and told the service department over and over again about how the car would hesitate while cruising down the highway and jerking shuddering stalling whinning vibrating and they have done absolutely nothing. . We were told " that's how those altimas are " . Now I have 100600 miles on this car .. it's not even worth 8k if I traded it in. Still owe over 20k and the transmission is on its last leg! Im actually surprised it made it this far ....What am i gonna do!! This sucks ...if anyone gets info about a Class Action Lawsuit with 2013-2015 model year or even a good attorney please let me know. 6019669897 or elamir2345@gmail.com

Update on my 2013 Altima CVT. Previously I wrote that my transmission was replaced at 38,000 miles. After 5,000 miles on the replaced CVT, it again needed to be replaced. My dealership replaced it it again, and before I was called to pick the car up, they called to inform me that the transmission they just installed was faulty, and they had to order another one from Nissan. After three days I picked up the car. It has been two weeks, and now this CVT is starting to act just like the other three. My Altima now has 41,000 miles on it and it has had four transmission in it and will probably be returning for a fifth shortly. This vehicle is not safe to drive and Nissan needs to own up..

I am appalled at the number of people who have this exact same issue with the 2013 Altima CVT transmission. I have been dealing with this for over a month now and after the 3rd shop I was finally told that the transmission is locked up and it will be at a minimum 3900 to get this replaced / repaired. My car stopped on me SEVERAL times in traffic while I had my child in the car. Eventually the car got to the point to where it would not even drive anymore. The car would start up perfect but as soon as you put the car in drive or reverse it will shut off or just roll forward. I also would try to accelerate and the car would not go . The RPM was so low and then all of a sudden it would kick into gear and shoot all the way up and zoom out. I almost had a accident dealing with this BS!!!!!! Just like everyone else of course my warranty is expired and im stuck with a car I have only had 2 years with 104K Miles on it and an outstanding balance that I CANNOT EVEN DRIVE!!!! I regret the day I ever decided to purchase this car. This has been tremendously stressful and just a true headache. I cannot trade the car because I owe too much and besides who wants to buy a vehicle that doesn't even drive smh . I am very disappointed and devastated at the fact that this is a known issue with these model of cars and YET NISSAN STILL IS SELLING THESE VEHICLES knowing that eventually with this terrible CVT transmission their customers will eventually end up having to replace this or just be out of luck without a vehicle. I definitely want in on this lawsuit and I pray that Nissan gets what they deserve for scamming customers like this and leaving us out in the cold. I will never in life get another NISSAN vehicle I swear. I will also warn everyone I know about this and encourage them to not purchase any vehicle from NISSAN! Its a shame that there is no recall on these CVT transmissions.

I bought my son a 2011 Versa when he started college. I was hoping it would be a good reliable car to get him to and from college and graduate school. Transmission died last week with 70K on it. The previous year has an extended warranty so I don't understand why they are not covering the newer ones. Seems like they knew it was a problem for the older models yet they continued to sell them. It's been at the dealer over a week. (Phone estimate was $2900) He had to hitch a ride home for Thanksgiving and now I am concerned he won't have a reliable vehicle to get to graduate school in come March. My husband and I ALMOST bought another Nissan just last month but are thanking our lucky stars we got a Toyota instead.

I bought my Nissan Altima at 58 thousand miles from a dealer, they told me I was due for a transmission covered under warranty, I go to get the new one they said there was nothing wrong and no transmission needed to be replaced. Fast forward to 70,000 miles my car suddenly shudders and jolts and shuts off on a main highway with my infant in the car, had to have someone come get me my car wouldn't start. We have it towed to Faulkner Nissan who then tells me it's my transmission and it will cost me 4,000. I pay well over 700 a month already for this car!! I call consumer customer service they tell me they can't help me! I was forced to pay 4,000 this isn't fair! I guess someone has to be hurt before Nissan does anything!!! I will never buy another Nissan! Then we file a complaint to the better business bureau and Nissan sends me a letter to try and stop me from working with them saying regardless they still can't help me

I end up paying to reprogram the engine computer and transmission computer. Pick my car up today and on the way home RPM's go crazy and car is jumping! This is absolutely absurd!

I'm having the same issue with my Nissan Sentra 2014 , the car jerks and slips. The car also loses power in the middle of traffic I get really scared when I'm driving it I don't feel safe. Im also having problems with the airbag warning lights they are ways on and they told me at the dealership that it's normal. I took the car twice to the dealership for the airbag issue and once for the jerking and slipping. They told me they just had to change an airbag code and a transmission code I don't know what that means. Im taking my car back to the dealership because the problem wasn't fixed today is 12/14/ 2016. I took the car in 12/1/2016 but the problem wasn't fixed, they charged me $193.00. They said they did the diagnostic test but there wasn't nothing wrong with it. I Know there is something wrong with the car I drive it on a daily basis. My 21 year old daughter doesn't want to drive the car because she's scared she said she would rather take Uber, this is ridiculous for a 2 year old car to jerk and pull and have the loss of power like an old car.

We bought a 2012 nissan quest s with a cvt transmission. It had 58k miles on it. We have had it since 2013.
The vehicle is 4 yes old and has 108k miles now.
Reaching out to nissan consumer affairs they took my vin number and said the mileage exceeded the manufacturer warranty.
nissanassist.com states they extended the warranty to 10 years 120k miles. It doesn't state specific years, makes or models. It only states cvt transmission problems. I am disgusted with nissan and their lack of humanity and sympathy for my family and thousands of others.
I am looking further in to options. I bought an 05 toyota carry brand new and 11 years later 200k miles I regret buying a Nissan. NEVER AGAIN. SHAME ON YOU NISSAN FOR PUTTING FAMILY'S IN HARMS WAY TO MAKE A SALE. WILL IT TAKE THE LIFE /LIVES OF INNOCENT PEOPLE BEFORE YOU RIGHT YOUR WRONG?

Purchased my 2014 Sentra in March 2015 -
I've started to have issues with my 2014 Nissan Sentra. I went in for an oil change and I explained what was going on and the first mechanic wasn't sure what it could be, asked someone else who couldn't identify it Immediately from discussion. I gave my thoughts/Suggestions. They stated "hopefully" the oil change that I was there to get would fix it, if not it may need to get a diagnostic and "hopefully" that would tell us. The oil change ends and I ask if transmission fluid was checked/added and he told me no dip stick, its encapsulated, CVT transmission. No sooner than the next day I'm on the highway during rush hour going about 40+ and the car stops getting gas, I press the pedal, goes to the floor but absolutely no go. Luckily I was already in the far right lane. Make a long story short, CVT transmission is trash and at 60k miles it dies, I'm at 62k miles and the service guys should be knowledgeable about their vehicles, I have pages and pages of complaints! I hope to get this replaced under my 100k warranty that I know I have but after calling to discuss this issue the next day they trying to tell me it would cost $200 to look at! Disgusted to say the least... Very scary to be on the road...

The car is under warranty, but Nissan says they will only cover 5 days of rental coverage. I need help.

I bought a 2013 Nissan Sentra new and now at 63,000 (just 3,000 miles out of warranty) need a new transmission. Nissan offered to cover half, but I'm scared to drive it now even with a new transmission. Not to mention a $2,200 repair on a 3 year old car is ridiculous. I also can't trade it in, because with the transmission fix, I'm now $6,000 upside down in the thing (after paying $12,000 on it in the last 3 years). I was such a big Nissan fan until this. They really need to make this right.

We own a 2013 Altima 3.5 SL...Frist transmission went out at 22k.. second transmission at 30K..so we have had 3 in the car the one it was born with and 2 more.. It also has had to be reprogramed at about 44K.. It is in the shop again today with a shift control issue.. which so far they won't warranty even though this dealer has removed 3 of them...and a module has to be replaced in the transmission which only has 25k on it.. Car currently has 56K..Is this a issue you damn right.. wait till you try and sell it or trade it in on anything but a Nissan..the other auto companies know it is a major issue.. the CVT transmission..Nissan had this problem before and extended the warranty.. to 10 years 120,000 miles you would think they would have done the same thing.. Nissan has not fixed the problem with the CVT transmission design..

I own a 2008 Nissan Altima!! A broken one at that! Was driving home Christmas evening and my car just stopped pulling!! No problems before this! Nissan is aware of these BAD CVT transmissions and refuse to fix them unless your car meets the 120,000 mile or 10 yr extended warranty!! This is unacceptable! They know they are bad, have known they're bad, and didn't let me or my husband know anything about it! I want in on the lawsuit! I can't afford 3500.00 + dollars to replace this transmission !! Also, they are replacing them with the same transmission!! Nissan should be held responsible!!

I have a 2013 Nissan Altima worse car ever.The transmission has went completely out in my car.Took it to the dealer and they did a transmission reset the same day my car just completely stopped in the middle of the street.Called Nissan corporate office who called the service department at Nissan and the service manager stated I needed a 3 way catalyst.Oh did I forget to mention I had just asked the service guy when I picked my car up did they run a diagnostic on my car he said NO.Southern I'm wondering just where did they come up with the 3 way catalyst scenario.Just made it up.I wouldn't recommend a Nissan to anyone.And for all of us that has issues with the Nissan cars we should be in on the class action lawsuit because money is hard to come by and I can not a $2400 repair Bill on top of a $499 car note

I have a Nissan Altima SL that the transmission went out on me on Saturday morning with my family in the car on a busy highway. It did the jerking and shuddering before it finally went out. I called the service department on that Friday they told me to bring the car in. I asked could I bring it in on Saturday it was told to me that no master techsuite are on site on weekends. Well the ended up with my car on Saturday anyways. Been renting a car for the 2weeks now but got told that my transmission is my issue and we need to replace the transmission on a upside down vehicle and they couldn't do anything to rectify this common issue.

I own a 2008 Nissan Rogue - We were driving down a busy highway when the car just stopped in the middle of the road with all of my family in the car. The Transmission went out at only 60,000 miles. We spent $4,000 getting the transmission replaced. Now, just 2 YEARS later, guess what?? My transmission has gone out AGAIN and now the head gasket has blown!!! So, I take it to the Nissan dealer and all they can say is: "It will take $5,500 to replace the head gasket and transmission AGAIN, and the car is not worth that! Tough luck!!!". So basically I have a pile of junk now sitting in my yard that is worth nothing!! I am not one and I cannot afford to change vehicles every couple of years. When I buy a car I need it to last! I also own a 1998 Toyota Camry that has 253,000 miles on it that I have not had one major thing go wrong. When I bought the Nissan Rogue, I expected the same quality!! I will never waste my money on one again. Someone needs to stand up to this careless company and do something! They offer no assistance whatsoever when you try to contact them!

I have a 2013 Nissan Rouge that the transmission went out while on the interstate. I have roughly 90.000 miles on it, 80% of miles are interstate since my job requires me to travel, hence the reason I bought a Nissan for its durability in lasting a long life. I was very disappointed that after 3 yrs a TRANSMISSION would go out, really. Will no trust a Nissan again, guessing Toyota would be a better solution. Nissan headquarters claims that my CVT transmission does not fall under the recall, even though Nissan CVT transmission have ALWAYS had issues and numerous problems. Nissan was very rude and basically told me "tough S...T", even though you can look online a pull dozens of CVT problems and lawsuits filed. Thank you very much Nissan for giving me a true perspective on what a GOOD and RELIBLE car is. Since you money makers will not help me in this matter I have to fork out $4300 to get it fixed.

I didn't realize what was going on until I ended up on the side of the rode 3x on one trip. When I took it to Nissan, I was told that I pretty much have to replace the valve body and transmission cooler assembly based on Nissan's service bulletin, not from what they found. This will cost about $3000.00. After doing research, I was pretty much told that the whole transmission has to be replaced otherwise I will have the same problem. Really???

I have a 2012 Nissan Rogue that is equipped with a stage 2 CVT transmission, the car is at 105,000 miles. The car was purchased used in 2014 so I had the Nissan Certified Vehicle extended warranty up to 100,000 miles which is also when I started experiencing jerking and stalling. I brought the car in for repairs, the 1st time I got a tune up and they replaced the air filter. The 2nd repair 2 1/2 weeks ago was because the check engine light went on and the code it was giving was P0101 for the mass airflow censor which I replaced. Now 2 weeks later the check engine light is on again and I am told the whole transmission needs to be replaced. Nissan Corporate will not help in this situation as the car is out of warranty. This just does not seem right! I had the car serviced at 60,000 as well because the check engine light was on and it gave the same code P0101. I feel there has been a problem with the transmission since 60,000 miles and Nissan won't own up to putting faulty transmissions in their vehicles - clearly I am not the only one that has experienced issues after the car was just out of warranty.

I bought a 2013 Altima off lease and not even six months later the car died on me.The car was sputtering and shaking , then when i would put the car into any gear it would simply shut off. After 10 days at the dealer they have decided that the car needs a new trans at 52k. I can't believe that after spending so much money on a car, the trans needs to be replaced less then six months later with low mileage. The car is still in the shop being fixed and I am told that it will take another week before it is repaired!

I called Nissan to ask for help with the CVT transmission because after getting it checked out it gave me a code for the TCM ... Nissan said it was nothing they could do because the car has over 60,000 miles on it when I asked about the extended factory warranty of 10years and 120,000 miles I was told that my car does not qualify for it.... They know what they are doing is wrong and they know that all their CVT transmission is defected.... And they need to do the right thing and recall and fix them .... So if anyone knows how I can get some help with this problem because they want me to pay over 4k for the repairs for something they new that was flawed ....

I had a 2013 nissan sentra. Same problems. Would surge and or stall when driving. Took it in and they said nothing was wrong. I paid the vehicle off . Shortly after the transmission went completely out. At 66k miles. They would not cover it because I did not buy the extended warranty. They wanted close to 4k to put a new one in. I could not afford that so I traded it in . I could only get 6k on the trade in because of the problems even though the vehicle was only 2 years old. I have felt cheated ever since. The vehicle was unsafe to drive from the beginning.

I just bought my son a used 2008 Nissan Altima that had 121,100 miles on it. It is now 4 months later at 129K miles and the car is experiencing the same as everyone here. Mechanic says transmission must be replaced. We are out of the 10 year/120,000 mile warranty that was extended by Nissan. Why hasn't this CVT transmission been totally recalled if it has affected or will affect so many vehicles? If I would have known about the transmission issues last September I would definitely have passed on buying an Altima.

Purchased 2013 Nissan Sentra brand new. The problem started at ~30000 miles. It seemed like the car was in 2nd gear at a stop sign. First recall was a code change to the ECM, No change in performance. the problem got progressively worse, trans slips on acceleration. Dealer in Florida stated they could not duplicate the problem. Dealer in Connecticut stated that they experienced the problem but because there was no error code stored in the computer they could not repair.

We bought a used 2013 Nissan Sentra in 2015. We are now in the process of putting in a new transmission. Hubby drives this car everyday to work and noticed a funny noise recently. A bit of shuddering, Slight loss of acceleration. Pulled out in traffic last week and was going along and suddenly no power to go forward at all in quitting time commute. Scary.
He also has a regularly long commute. Ins agent advised to take it to our local repair. Not only was he is traffic but big city traffic. So 600 dollars later in tows. We find out it will cost us another 2800 dollars to replace the transmissions. $110. in taxis.
We wait for the phone call telling us what is going on. Here is the kicker... There is a shortage of transmission is our area due to so many of the Nissan transmission failures, 10 from one dealer alone. Now the garage is calling all over and nothing local available. We have to have it shipped from out of area. We have to wait even longer to for it to come in, plus the time it will take to install in once it gets here. Since this is our only vehicle, we are renting a car.. And yet incurring further costs. 79K miles on the car We have had the car less than yrs.

I bought Altima 2013 brand new and everything was fine until it suddenly cut of the engine at a traffic light. The Mileage was about 63,000 miles. I restarted and the same thing happens in the next stop and so on. I towed my car to the dealer ($225.00) who the same day did a recall reprogramming of the transmission. They told me there is nothing wrong in the car and told me to take it; essentially telling me I am crazy. They said they could not duplicate the problem. I showed them right there why I could not drive the car. They then said the transmission failed. After several calls to Nissan, Nissan said the transmission failed by itself not because of a recall reprogramming. However, according to Nissan as a courtesy (since my mileage is close to the 60000 warranty) Nissan provided the part and I paid the labor of $1200.00. I had to rent about two weeks rental since I have to go to work every day driving about 75 miles a day. The dealer just gave me courtesy car once they received the replacement part. Now I traded the Altima losing some money as I did not finish paying. I have disclosed to a dealer when I sell the car that transmission has been replaced. I think it is also recorded in that carfax report. In my opinion Nissan should extend the warranty to 120000 miles to all Altima.

I have a 2007 Nissan Versa, apparently there is also an extended warranty for the CVT transmission on my vehicle as well.

I first noticed issues driving around in Seattle, going up hill and getting stopped at a red light while on one of the steep inclines filled me with anxiety already, but it was made worse when the light changed green, I stepped on the gas and the car went nowhere. My wife had the same problem driving my car and had to coast backwards downhill in Seattle during rush hour traffic to get onto a flat road to turn the car off and back on to get the transmission to reset (I guess?). These CVT Transmission issues are a true hazard, and could lead to serious injury or even death. I am surprised that Nissan has not taken a more active role in resolving this issue for everyone having it regardless of the ability for the dealer to recreate it or not. I am disappointed, and will likely not buy another Nissan after this debacle.

When I dropped it off at Campbel Nissan in Everett, the guy I spoke to said that the check engine code (Pressure solenoid switched to off), and the issue I described is related to this transmission issue, and I should bring it in right away because I was only a few days away from warranty. They've had my car for over a week and Nissan says that they are not going to cover it due to lack of information.

I am terrified to pick up my car and have something like that happen again, especially since I got it to the dealership while just barely inside the warranty.

I am about to get someone from Nissan on the phone and make some heads roll until it get's taken care of because it is absolutely insane that they are unwilling to resolve this for everyone... this should have been a recall, not an "extended warranty" given the nature of the situation and just how dangerous it really is.

I took to the dealer and was told there is no warning light on and that I would be charged to run on the machine to see whats wrong. Being a female I just thought it maybe was gas., even after my brothers drove and rode with me and said this wasn't normal and that I need to get rid of. Trading the car in would put me upside down since Im still paying a car note. Something needs to be done!

My foot completely pressed on the fuel pedal. No check engine light and no warning whatsoever. I could have been slowing for traffic. Then stuck on the freeway lanes. Nissan doesn't make good products no more. To continue with such a horrible product like the cvt transmission. Please sign me up for a class action lawsuit. Make them make me whole. Oh yeah there warranty was only 60k miles. I was just past 65k miles.

2013 Nissan Sentra started experiencing jerking and judder around 75k miles. Around the same time, I experienced several situations where high engine load conditions(i.e. going up a hill on highways or local traffic) would keep the transmission stuck in overdrive. Finally, this past weekend, while driving around 35 mph, the vehicle refused to accelerate upon depressing the gas pedal near an intersection. I could have gotten into an accident had this happened on the highway with my daughter in the car. Nissan sold me a car with a clearly defective transmission which failed exactly 20k miles after the powertrain warranty expired.

106k miles, transmission went in traffic - no acceleration, and i almost wrecked, managed to get off the interstate and take the freeway to a shop, they couldn't fix it and said I need to take it to the dealership. Have it towed to the dealership. They replace it, replacement transmission is having issues, they replace that one, and more issues. Called Corporate Nissan today and waiting to hear back from a regional specialist. Hoping something can be done about this.

I brought the car in. Sure enough, diagnostics do not show anything and it must be an internal problem of the transmission, and can only be replaced: $3600. This is completely ridiculous. Let's march on Nissan to this reimbursed and get resolved for what is clearly defective manufacturing.

I have had the shaking at idle, stalling while in motion, several service engine illumination incidents, and acceleration issues since the day I bought my 2014 nissan versa note brand new. Have had my car in the shop 8 times and the only things that have been done was a throttle replacement and resets to the system. They have kept my car for long periods of time just to tell me they can't duplicate the problem. It still has these issues 3 years later. I hardly drive it (has 19,500 miles now) because it is scary and I still intend to sue them. I recently found out that there was communication between Nissan and the NHTSA in January 2014 about this problem which was before I bought my car in may 2014. These issues were never communicated to me prior to my purchase. That is illegal and will not be good for them in my case. I worked with a lemon law attorney in the very beginning as I knew this was a lemon because I have owned two Nissans in the past before they were bought out by these evil people that run it now...that had zero problems. They only offered me 3,000 dollars which I declined as I know it would never be enough to cover the problems that are to come or my life. Unfortunately when it was time to go to court the lawyer said that he could not get a response from Nissan over a couple of months. I figured he was incompetent at this point and had to drop him. Then the car was so new there wasn't much research conducted or statements by others having issues. Well now there are thousands of us that are having the same problem. I plan on contacting legal advise again. If anyone can help, has advice, or knows how/where we can join our power please reach out. I hope we can make them pay for their dishonest, fraudulent, life threatening business.

Bought my 2011 Nissan cube in 2012 . In 2015 I had the transmission replaced due to CVT problems, the same type of problems everyone else on this website is having. Then two years later I have the exact same problem. Called Nissan consumer affairs and lord and behold my type of model was not under the warrantee everybody else was under it did not recall my type of model for whatever reason. I asked him if I would have to replace my transmission every two years, of course they didn't have an answer for me. This is a problem should've been fixed in 2015 and I can't see how putting 60,000 miles on the car automatically kills the transmission when I drive very careful he all the time. Something just isn't right, my transmission went out not once but twice and almost killed me the second time it went out something ain't right.

2013 altima. 2.5. Went for a trip from AZ to California. Got to California and at a red light car shut off. Would turn on, but shut off again when in reverse or park. Took it to a local shop and said it was all 4 coils. Cost $600. Next day on trip to Sea World, card gave out again. Took to only shop open on Sunday. 4 hours of diagnostics and could not find out what was wrong. Charged me $120. Took to dealership. Couldn't find out what was wrong for 2 days. Had to replace the transmission with a remanufactured one. New one immediately had problems. Shudders when accelerating in low gears. 1st or 2nd usually. Was making a left turn and no power when pressing the gas. Very very dangerous. Took back to nissan dealership. 3 weeks ans only test drove it 2 times for a total of 10 min and could not duplicate problem and no check engine light. Gave it back. After about 1.5 months of the same shuddering and no power when pressing gas, issues disappeared. Just waiting for the transmission to give out now, and it is passed the 60k powertrain warranty.

2011 Nissan Quest - Having to replace the transmission at 85,000 miles. Same jerking symptom at low speeds. Runs fine when you get going. Will NEVER buy another Nissan of any model. The only thing that would make this right is to extend the warranty for 2011 on. Looking at options of replacing transmission, but then what do I do with it. It will happen again.

I have a 2016 Nissan Sentra which was purchased 9 months ago. The car was serviced and oil changed in February. This car started acting up. One day I stopped at a light. When ready to drive off the car rolled backwards and bumped a parked truck. It dented car and broke light glass. Well, if that wasn't all this car started making all kinds of noises and finally konked out in the street. They replaced the transmission , but won't fix the damage it made. I tried to talk to someone reasonably in consumer affairs. He told me to contact my insurance company. I would love to give this car back because I don't feel safe as I should knowing what happened to me in this car.

I have a 2009 Nissan Altima with 125,000 miles on it. The CVT just died on it. I called Nissan corporate and at first they were not willing to pay anything. The quote to fix from a Nissan Dealer is $4,550. After insisting on speaking to a manager, I was able to get them to agree on paying for 50% of the cost. I hope this helps anyone else out there who had a CVT fail just over the 120,000 extended warranty.

Bad things is I owe to much to trade and now I have to find a transmission to fix this POS. Nissan was a great product but not anymore (my 1997 Nissan Mini Van was great).

I'm in the same boat. I have a 2011 Maxima with 80,000. I still owe $10,000 on it and I keep having CVT issues. On many occasions I have made turns from complete stops and it would only crawl with my foot to the floor as cars are coming at me. So far I've been lucky. I took it in once when it had under 40,000 and the Nissan Dealer couldn't find anything wrong. Now at high speed, it whines loud, loss of power and rpm stay high. I'm taking it back on Monday.

My 2014 Nissan Pathfinder does this. I've taken it into Nissan twice (within warranty) and they denied theres an issue. Their response? Its just how CVT's operate. No! Its how defective cvts operate. I want a fix. This is a$34k car. It should run like one.

I am stationed with US Army in Germany. I took my 2009 cube for the same issue to the local German Nissan dealership and they told me that the transmission was bad. They told me about the extended warranty and to contact Nissan USA to get them to ship a new transmission to the German dealership. Apparently they have replaced several CVTs of US military in community. I just spent an hour getting through to Nissan USA and then 30 minutes with a consumer affairs rep that didn't seem to understand where Germany was and that if I was there and going to German dealership, where was my car? I had to explain to him several times that I was physically in Germany and so was my car. The German dealership knew all about the CVT problems in the 2009 cube. I don't have much confidence.
