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.

@YRod hello, i am also having nissan versa 2008 and CVT transmission sucks. When i shift the the gear from P to R to D and vice versa, the car jerks after a second and response time after shifting gears is slow. very annoying and to change the CVT transmission it costs around 4000$. Did you get any help from nissan?
