Nissan CVT's are terrible. I would see if you can get a new one from your Nissan dealer under their extended warranty.

Replacing it and it will cost $5000. My trani just went out in my 2012 altima with 130000 miles on it. Im fighting this and already have an attorney ready to take action. Nissan doesnt care about their customers or want to do anything about it. If you want to join forces to do a class act suit the more the better.
