Nissan Transmission Problems

Are you having problems with your 2007-2019 Nissan vehicle? You may be entitled to a refund, a replacement, or a cash settlement. A number of consumers who own or lease 2007-2019 Nissan vehicles have experienced a number of problems with their vehicles, most commonly, transmission problems. The problematic transmission installed in many Nissan vehicles is referred to as a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT).

The CVT has been installed in many of Nissan’s models. The CVT was intended to increase the performance of vehicles by creating a smoother gear shift capability and above-average fuel economy. Unfortunately, the result was just the opposite. Consumers have been complaining for years that their vehicles installed with this type of transmission exhibits the following symptoms:

  • Hesitation on acceleration
  • Jerking, shaking, and/or shuddering
  • Slipping
  • Harsh and/or hard shifts
  • Transmission fluid leaks
  • Failure to accelerate
  • Transmission failure and/or premature wear of transmission components
  • Vibration and/or juddering
  • Reduced power on an incline
  • Whining noise from the transmission area
  • Loss of / lack of power
  • Revving and/or surging
  • RPMs fluctuate

These and other transmission problems are a serious safety hazard for drivers of 2007-2019 Nissan vehicles, and those that share the road with them.

If you purchased or leased one of the following Nissan models, whether it was new or used, you may be entitled to restitution under state and/or federal laws:

  • Altima
  • Rogue
  • Sentra
  • Versa
  • Cube
  • Juke
  • Maxima

California’s Lemon Law was designed to protect buyers and lessees from being forced to drive a defective vehicle. To be considered a lemon, a vehicle must have a defect that is covered by the manufacturer’s warranty. Additionally, the manufacturer must have failed to repair the vehicle within a reasonable number of repair attempts (in some circumstances, if the vehicle is in the shop for an excessive amount of time, less repair attempts are required).

Nissan has extended the warranty on some of its vehicles installed with a CVT from 5 years or 60,000 miles to 10 years or 120,000 miles, whichever comes first. The warranty extension applies to 2007-2010 Nissan vehicles with a CVT. The warranty extension covers repairs, replacements, and towing for issues related to the CVT. Vehicle owners or lessees must take their vehicles to a Nissan dealership for repairs.
