A faulty transmission in one of these vehicles can cause an array of issues including, but not limited to difficulty accelerating, slow response time, loud/whining noises, shaking and stuttering, overheating, coolant leaks/failures, and sudden loss of power.
Most of these vehicles contain what is known as a continuously variable transmission (CVT). In a majority of the cases, the CVT is the culprit for the slew of issues that Nissan consumers endured through no fault of their own. Ironically, the CVT transmission was created with the objective of creating a smooth gear shift experience. However, the result has been the complete opposite, leaving consumers to find themselves constantly in the repair shop issuing complaints to service technicians regarding their transmission systems.
These faulty transmissions have been described in a recent class-action lawsuit as being not only faulty but, “defective in design, materials, and/or workmanship”. According to the plaintiffs, the cars experience problems that cause them to be a danger to their owners on the road. Continuously variable transmissions are used in many Nissan models dating back to the 2012 model years including the widely popular Sentra, the Versa Note, Versa, Altima, and Juke. Because of all these issues and a mass uproar on the part of consumers, Nissan has extended the manufacturer warranty on some of these vehicles from 5 years / 60,000 miles to 10 years / 120,000 miles.
