Seems to skip and shutter sometimes causing issues in parking lots that sould be dangerous. However, from what I read in other posts, this will be temporary and eventually, it won't shift at all. I used to rave about Nissan's I've owned 5 , but no more! The manufacturer was notified of the failure. While I would definitely recommend it to a family member and feel good in doing so, I would make it four wheel drive which would be hard to do for a car. Always adhere and follow safe practices when working on vehicles. I intend to file a report with Nissan's Customer Service department because surely they are well aware of this issue by now! Use the information in this video at your own risk.
I have concerns that this is a potential safety hazard while driving on the highway after review and in depth research of the faulty transmission issues several Nissan owners have faced in the past few years. No major expenses until last year and normal wear and tear for 170k miles. Seems like they are steady going downhill. I can easily do things to it myself like wash, change the oil, check the tires. While accelerating from a red light, the accelerator pedal was depressed and traveled to the floorboard. Advance Auto Parts has 8 different Automatic Transmission Fluid for your vehicle, ready for shipping or in-store pick up.
Do I posture like I'm looking to sue them? Bought Sentra used and no major fixes have been necessary. Only use the fluid specified on the caution label in the engine compartment. I got it towed to the local Nissan dealership. There is eco boost, volume controls on the wheel. Such as, safety glasses, jack stands, no loose clothing, etc. All other trademarks used herein are trademarks of their respective owners. It's almost a new car and the transmission failed out of nowhere on 78k miles!! They are replaced which would make any mistake potentially very costly.
Our 2013 Sentra has an automatic transmission cvt and less than 40,000 miles on the odometer when the transmission failed. Post-2008 Nissan's may require drainage from cooler hose or may need a charging pipe set to complete this job. However, the oil light is the only thing I have a problem with. I got mine done over the weekend and did notice the car having a little more power. Then we used the key to move the steering wheel back in position, and once I closed the door, the car locked itself with the key inside!!! Correct, 60,000 miles is what the guide says and the general consensus on most forums.
Bought Sentra used and no major fixes have been necessary. A good time to do it is when you refuel or check the engine oil. Bought it with 85k mostly highway miles, had it for exactly a year and drove 10,000 mi. This Lemon Law website suggests attorneys, but I bought the car months ago and I'm not looking to sue the original owner. Lo and behold less than 10,000 miles after the warranty expired the transmission went out.
These maintenance items should be checked periodically. But the Nissan Sentra is a great beginner vehicle and would last into early stages of starting a family. I started the engine back and it began driving fine for about 10 mins on the highway and then it decelerated again near the atlanta area and totally driving power. If I win it I'll take out the transmission and sell the car for parts and make some money. I tried pulling out into traffic on a heavily trafficked road and had to swerve to the side of the road because I was pressing on the gas and it was not accelerating. When should I consider taking it in for the cvt fluid to be looked at? One more thing that could make your day go from average to awful and imagine not being able to start the car because of the key fob running out of battery.
Cory my manual says to change it at 60,000 miles, I have 40,000 on mine now so I figure I might just do a drain and refill a little early instead of waiting until 60,000 and paying the extra expense at the dealer to do a complete flush, although you are probably right, do to the fact it probably doesn't really need it. I have heard people say to wait until 100,000 and then change it, so who knows. They own this transmission manufacturing company by the way. It's a pain to always see that light on when I know I take care of my car. I would nor put anything but Nissan in there for fear of voiding the warranty 120k miles I believe Paul wrote:Exactly how often should we have our transmissions looked at? I always had the fluid changed 30,000 miles in vehicles with conventional automatic transmissions, but all of the other maintenance procedures on this vehicle are required much less frequently ex. There are so many complaints here and on the web with regards to this transmission cvt and even lawsuits. I have a Nissan published maintenance schedule that I downloaded from the internet.
I also like the keyless engine start and that's also a downfall because once the key fob is out of batteries, you need to replace it. I shut the car off to see what was going on and was afraid of what just occurred. I plan to demand a new transmission or an equivalent car. If you are having a shop perform this maintenance, this is one instance where I'd say take it to your Nissan service shop - they are also the only ones who can test your fluid and let you know if it even needs to be changed! It has a wonderful interior that is extremely practical for my needs. Letting off the gas, then hitting it again seems to work in all instances - thus far. It had a complete transmission fail at 65,000 and Nissan refused to cover it. After using as a daily commuter and regular traveling something didn't seem right, the way it shifted and drove was a little off.
