Do you smell the bands burning? Put it in drive, step on the brake, and give it gas...can you feel it slipping? Does it start to smell? More than likely it's going out, but the CVT is fully warrantied to 120K miles...so if it is slipping, you should get a replacement from Nissan at no cost. The downside is that you'll be without a car for about three days unless you have a rental agreement in your contract. I don't believe there are any band adjustments you can make on a CVT.. and I've never seen any documentation or discussions on being able to adjust them.
Well that shut me up....so much for my understanding of the new technology. I'm still back in the era of the old stuff.....back to my cave.
So.....just out of curiosity, how would a guy test his tranny if he was buying a used car and wanted to see how good it was....or if it was "slipping"...the new technology doesn't lend itself to the old way we tested out a tranny.
