Nissan has installed the Constant Variable Transmission (CVT) on a variety of vehicles, including the Rogue, Murano, Sentra, Altima, and Pathfinder.  Nissan also uses the CVT on Infiniti vehicles too.

Other auto manufacturers such as Subaru, Mitsubishi, and Honda also use a CVT transmission.  Manufacturers claim that a CVT is able can get maximum power out of a small engine for quicker and more responsive acceleration.  The CVT is intended to deliver seamless acceleration without interruption for gear shifts, and a CVT is lighter in weight and delivers better power efficiency, it helps improve a vehicle’s fuel economy.

The problem is that this technology is littered with defects and other problems.  Defects with the CVT include overheating, slipping, jerking, shuddering, and a sudden loss of acceleration. As with any transmission, there are some cases where a CVT has failed altogether. The CVT belt, in particular, can be subject to excessive wear and stretching.

How many times has your Nissan vehicle equipped with a CVT been in for repairs?  California’s lemon law is designed to protect consumers by requiring car companies to repurchase or replace vehicles that suffer from warranty defects that cannot be fixed in a reasonable number of attempts – sometimes as few as 2 repair attempts.  If you think your Nissan, Subaru, Honda or any other vehicle equipped with a CVT may be a lemon, you may be entitled to get your money back and it won’t cost you anything as all your attorney’s fees and costs will be paid by the car manufacturer.
