Nissan Sentra Cvt Transmission Recall

Transmission started failing, out of Nissan's class action settlement extension to 84,000 miles as my car had 95,000 miles on it. I bought this car brand new and maintained it for my daughter to drive and was hoping it would last her through college. I drove it last Friday, traded it in on Sunday as cost to repair exceeded the value of the car. Was not informed of recall which is odd as only owner of car but regardless the vehicle not safe due to known issues of cvt drivetrain. Car would jump, hesitate, no power then it would catch and lunge when gas applied. Going downhill seemed to cause loss of power and would actually slow car down causing me to have to accelerate to go downhill and thus pull off road to stop and let the car seem to rest prior to interstate driving. Thankful weather not bad when this happened or that my daughter not in a wreck because of this known issue. Will boycott Nissan products rest of my life. Spoke with Nissan rep who informed me nothing can be done by Nissan to help me. I helped myself and bought a Honda.

2013 Nissan Sentra Transmission Slipping

My transmission failed while I was driving down a main road. I brought it to the dealer twice before. The first time they told me I had to keep driving it until it got worse. The second time they said nothing was wrong with it. I brought it to a transmission expert 5 days later who took pictures as proof that it was failing. The next day is when it broke down. Nissan is producing cars with faulty transmissions and then making their customers pay for it. This cvt transmission needs to be recalled. People's lives are in danger.

Driving home the other night and when I got on the highway the transmission failed. First it started revving really high and not shifting, then it stopped working all together. No matter how hard I pressed on the gas it would not go. It was very dangerous to be stuck on the highway with a car the would not go. Fortunately I was able to crawl to an offramp and onto a side street. I had to have towed to the nearest dealer. After examining it, they said it was making a wining sound and had to be replaced.

Driving on the highway and the car wouldn't accelerate. The car was jerking while trying to accelerate. We were able to get it to a dealership, and we were told the transmission had failed. The labor and part cost us $3,800. Please investigate these transmissions.

We bought our 2013 Nissan Sentra in 2015 from a Nissan dealership. The price tag was somewhere around 20-22 grand. I was expecting that we would be keeping this car for 10+ years. Unfortunately, Nissan failed to tell us about the cars failing transmission when they sold us the car. While driving on a daily basis, the car would oddly pull. But when test driving the car we were assured that this was normal and caused by the cvt transmission. 3 1/2 years later while I was running a normal errand in town, the car failed to accelerate. I tried pulling out into traffic on a heavily trafficked road and had to swerve to the side of the road because I was pressing on the gas and it was not accelerating. I managed to get the car to move again, but I slowly drove on backroads to get the car to the Nissan in our town. Once there, they did a diagnostic test to see what is wrong and guess what? the transmission has failed. Now tell me, why does a 5 1/2 year old car already have transmission failure?? we have only owned the vehicle for 3 1/2 years!! and our warranty ran out at 100,000 miles. We are at 113,000. I believe this car had transmission issues from the first day that we bought the vehicle. I think these cars are not reliable and should be recalled! this car looks perfect and is now worthless.

Starting around 75,000 miles, my Nissan Sentra started stuttering, stalling, and losing power because of the transmission. My 2013 Nissan Sentra's transmission failed on 4/11/2019 at 83,975 miles (1 year and 23k miles over the warranty). Over the past year, this transmission has been a public and personal safety hazard. I was not comfortable driving this with my children in the car, or on highways in fear of what happened on 4/11 would happen on a major highway. The fact that something so important and expensive would fail on a car so fast proves that this part of the vehicle needs to be investigated and recalled.

Complete transmission failure at 85,821 miles. Stranded at major intersection. Transmission replaced at a cost of $4000. Nissan should extend the warranty on their cvt transmissions in all vehicles.

Failure Date: 09/19/2018

Continuous transmission revs up and down and jerks the car forward and backward. This is a newly replaced transmission in April 2018. The last transmission also had an issue when complained the authorized service center said there was no issue. And then the transmission failed right after it was out of warranty and Nissan refused to replace. I paid $3700 from pocket to replace the transmission, and it is failing again.

Failure Date: 09/07/2018

My 2013 Nissan Sentra suddenly lost all of its power in a busy highway. It is very easy to cause a crash and kill me. I got it towed to the local Nissan dealership. I am told that the average cost for the replacement of the transmission can range from 3500 to 5000. It's almost a new car and the transmission failed out of nowhere on 78k miles!! just got out of the manufacturer's warranty from my understanding this cvt caused Nissan to warranty the older models because of the same issue, but they did not offer the same on my 2013. However, from my research, it appears to be a current and ongoing issue with all Nissans with a cvt. I am disappointed that Nissan is aware of the common problem and is doing nothing to correct it.

I am requesting an investigation into Nissan cvt transmissions after suffering transmission failure at 70 miles an hour while on cruise control on an interstate in traffic. Rpms jumped up but was losing power and engine sounded horrible like metal on metal . Able to get off before passing exit and limped into nearby gas station. Towed to nearest Nissan dealer after breakdown and told a few days later that something broke internally in transmission and will now have to be replaced after 115000 miles for $4000. Car bought new in 2013. Research online shows an extreme amount of the same complaints about Nissan's cvt transmissions for years and Nissan is not addressing the issue. Nissan offered owners of previous models up to year 2010 to double power train warranty from 60,000 to 120,000 to address previous complaints but current owners are not offered this currently even though obvious problems remain with their transmissions. There has to be a fault with their transmissions. Could you please investigate as numerous people are in danger if failure occurs in traffic and are suffering financially from paying for repairs from this problem.

Hello, I am a owner of a Nissan Sentra sr 2013 and it has 102,000 miles on it and the transmission (cvt) has failed and my wife was stranded on the side of a highway and temp. Of 100+ for 2 hours because there where enough tow trucks in the area to come pick her and the vehicle up. This is very upsetting, we have owned other Nissan's in the past and they had double the mileage on them and there transmission had very failed. There are so many complaints here and on the web with regards to this transmission (cvt) and even lawsuits. Please ntsb review these's complaints and the vehicle because it's only a matter of time that someone could be hut because there transmission failed in the middle of the road and they could get to a safe area.

My 2013 Nissan Sentra began having problems with acceleration as well as shuddering hesitating, down shifting above 50mph. ,whining sound followed by the check engine light. Carried the vehicle to the dealer ship to be checked out. I was told the transmission was failing. I would need a new one.

Transmission failure after 69k miles. The coned shaped pulley does not seem to be traversing properly to change drive ratios. Seems to skip and shutter sometimes causing issues in parking lots that sould be dangerous. For example you may push the petal and very little happens push a little more and it snaps in and goes crazy.

As I was driving down the interstate at 65 miles an hour the car stopped accelerating. I was able to maneuver the vehicle to the side and call for aaa. The next day I called the dealership and reported to them what happened and they asked if the car still turned on and if so, did it go into gear. It did so I drove it to them 7 miles away. Once I got to 30 mph, the rpm's went to 4 and would not decrease until the car lost all power. I was able to shut the car off and turn it back on to cete the drive. The car was diagnosed with internal transmission failure. I have brought the car to Nissan 3 times prior and they claimed nothing was wrong and that this was normal for a cvt. Once the car reached over 60k and was officially diagnosed with transmission failure they let me know it would be $4,300 to fix. I opened a case and Nissan states because the car was diagnosed post warranty they will not cover it. I explained I have the documentatiom proving I was in there prior to warranty expiring and the women said that doesn't matter, the official diagnosis was post warranty eligibility guidelines.

Failure Date: 01/20/2018

Transmission failed while driving 60 mph on a busy highway. Had problems moving the Sentra over to breakdown lane due traffic and the sudden DE-acceleration. The Sentra required towing 60 miles back to our local Nissan dealership at our, the owners, expense. The Nissan dealership confirmed the transmission had failed, noting this is not uncommon with the Sentra. Our 2013 Sentra has an automatic transmission (cvt) and less than 40,000 miles on the odometer when the transmission failed. The cost to replace the transmission was covered under warranty.

My car had been 'soft stalling' for a couple of weeks - it would keep running, but at just about any speed/driving condition, would either experience a struggle to accelerate/maintain speed (rpms up to 6,000 with no warning/reason), start to drop speed, or hesitate/kick back at me. I took it to my mechanic on wed, 7/28, and on thurs, 7/29, he told me that the transmission had failed completely, that it was cycling through gears, and dropping gears randomly. He said that he spoke with Nissan, and because I was out of warranty by miles (72k vs 60k), there was nothing they could do. They don't issue repair kits for their cvt transmission, and a re-manufactured cvt would be $3900, with parts and labor. I owed $6000 on that car, and was forced to junk it. Nissan should not be allowed to deny warranty claims on their cvt transmissions, as they're an acknowledged problem in other models.

2013 Nissan Sentra transmission failed at 78,600 miles without any warning while we were traveling on a busy highway on the way home from a long road trip. While driving at an speed of approximately 70-75 mph in TN on the highway the vehicle began decelerate and the rpm's just kept revving up. It was just me (a female) and my two year old daughter in the vehicle. I attempted to the emergency shoulder with my hazards on trying to avoid being hit by a transfer truck and several vehicles. I shut the car off to see what was going on and was afraid of what just occurred. I started the engine back and it began driving fine for about 10 mins on the highway and then it decelerated again near the atlanta area and totally driving power. I was 3 hours from home and had to call for help. I immediately called the dealership the next morning and advised them of the issue and engine codes received from an auto store. I then contacted Nissan consumer affairs to notify them of the transmission failure and they advised to simply take it to the dealership for repair since it was outside of warranty. The dealership quoted us a price of $3600 before taxes and advised that they have several issues with cvt transmissions but that's just the nature of them. I have concerns that this is a potential safety hazard while driving on the highway after review and in depth research of the faulty transmission issues several Nissan owners have faced in the past few years. Additionally, the cost effectiveness of the issue is causing hardship on customers that rely on the brand and safety features Nissan is continuing to advertise. Nissans commitment: dear Nissan Sentra owner: Nissan is committed to providing the highest levels of product safety, quality and customer satisfaction. (statement is null and void per this concerned customer).

My 2013 Nissan has 75,000 highway miles. I've had no issues with the car until christmas eve. Driving home from work when my car started running rough, it didn't seem to have any pick up. I pulled into the closest Nissan dealership to find out I had transmission failure and that my warranty had just ran out. . I am looking into this a bit more because this transmission is not used in the 2014 or 15 model.
