It seems that there have been a number of failed CVT's. Let's check how long did they last.
Almost 40,000 miles on mine and no problems. One thing though, a few weeks ago my 'service engine soon' warning light came on. The dealership could not find anything wrong with the engine /CVT, all codes were normal. They said they would check with a Nissan engineer, reset the light and I was off . The next day the dealer called and said they needed to replace the CVT TCM (transmission control module) which they did a week later and everything is fine. Of course my friggin driver's seat has started to rock and rattle and sqeak again 10 months after the first repair.Kris said:It seems that there are a number of failed CVT's.

adavid said:What is the definition of "Failed CVT"? Do you meant that the CVT had to be replaced, or just that there have been problems? I have had problems when it seems that mine has gone into "limp" mode, and I needed to restart. But so far no codes and dealer can't reproduce.
The transmission appears to be functioning properly, except for the leak. My best guess is that it's one of the axle seals that is causing the problem. The fluid is hitting the exhaust with enough volume that you can smell the burning fluid aroma inside the car when it's stopped - my wife followed me to the dealer yesterday and said she could smell it pretty bad too. What's strange is that there are no pools of fluid in my garage - go figure....GripperDon said:Dave what's going on?
