You have the infamous CVT piece of sh!t. I would take it straight to a Nissan dealer and complain. Nissan has extended the warranty on a lot of their cars due to this transmission. Maybe they will help you out.

Nissan extended the CVT warranty to 100,000 miles up to the year 2010 ----- http://www.nissanassist.com/faqs.php?menu=3

same problem on 2013 Nissan Altima. At 75,000 miles, so not covered under drive train warranty.

Yep same thing happened to me on the interstate. Thank goodness I was able to pull over without an accident. I’m now upside down in my loan and no real support from Nissan. Apparently since mine failed at 116,000 miles that’s good. Had I know when I purchased the vehicle that the transmissions were notorious for failing and putting people at risk on the road I would have purchased a safer, more reliable vehicle.
