Was your cvt making a whining noise that increased when accelerating and decreased when stopping? My 2012 with 131000 miles has been doing that for 2 months now. I had the transfer case seal replaced about 6 months ago because it was leaking. Had the cvt fluid and filter changed and it stopped making noise for about three weeks but started up again.

Rebuild it. I rebuilt mine for $2500 CAD. Worsk well as the internals are upgraded. If not, scrap it for parts and get a new car.

Most indy shops can't rebuild a Nissan CVT, and dealers will only do exchanges. There have been one or two reports over the past couple of years that people found a way to have them rebuilt, but I think that most owners don't have that option.

Have you had an actual diagnosis of the problem performed? At this point it doesn't sound like the problem has been investigated very much.

Very few transmission shops will offer to rebuild the CVTs, but they're out there and they exist. The one I went to was very familiar with this CVT and rebuilt it with the updated internal sleeves to prevent bearing wear.

Proper lubrication (i.e. oil changes) don't really help prevent some of the flaws in these transmissions.
