2014 Nissan Sentra 75mph Issue

Asked by Jul 06, 2017 at 12:13 PM about the 2014 Nissan Sentra SV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2014 Nissan Sentra with 20k miles on it.
Sometimes when I am driving 65-70mph and need
to accelerate to 80mph the engine seems to rev the
rpms up and down (like a rubber band is being
pulled and let go consistently) and then slower than
a turtle, will gradually climb to 80mph. Keep in mind
it "rubberbands" the entire time it is trying to
accelerate to 80mph. It hasn't done it every time
though, so I'm really confused. I plan on taking it in
to the dealership but wanted outside opinions first.
Thanks everyone!!

That sounds like a CVT issue. Nissan CVT's are notorious for problems. I would complain to Nissan and ask for a free repair.

@F_O_R I figured it was a CVT issue, I should also say I love in Arizona, so it could be that it is going into Limp mode, but I haven't had any codes or anything pop up yet. A lot of people say they get a CVT cooler block.
