New discovery with 2013 Altima, CVT issues...
I took my car to a local auto shop for suspected transmission issue. They
called me to tell that yes, the sevro in the CVT is bad and they can NOT
repair due to NO parts to repair. I called the local Nissan dealer and the
service writer told me, without hesitation, that they would replace the
transmission for $4,156. I still owe $10,000 on this car.
This seems to a built in obsolesce at every 100,000 miles, event. Does
everyone have $4,156, to spend to get a another CVT ? only to have to
fork out another $4,156 in another 100,000?
What other folks have experienced this unfortunate event? What are you
doing to deal with this?
Complain to Nissan of America. They know these transmissions are a disaster.
At 4 years old there should be no problem getting parts! Visit a reputable transmission shop and see what they tell you. Doesn't sound right to me!! HTH. -Jim
CVT transaxles are not rebuildable at your local shops, hence you need a replacement. Like FOR mentions, this is a common issue. Maybe you can get Nissan to help foot some of the bill, like half. Complain and see what happens. You can also get some quotes from other trans shops in your area. Might be able to get one for closer to $3K.
