The Nissan CVT transmissions particularly models like Juke and Qashqai has had its share of reported issues related to the Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) system. Last 2 years we have seen very upward trend when owners reported various issues with Nissan CVT transmission. Common problems and complaints associated with the problems with Nissan CVT transmissions include:
CVT Juddering or Shuddering: Many owners have reported a sensation of juddering or shuddering when accelerating, especially at lower speeds. This issue can be attributed to problems with the CVT's belt and pulley system.
Overheating: Overheating of the CVT is a concern that has been raised by some Qashqai owners. Prolonged overheating can lead to a decline in transmission fluid quality and performance.
Loss of Power: Some drivers have experienced a sudden loss of power or acceleration, which can be linked to CVT issues.
Lack of Responsiveness: CVTs can sometimes feel less responsive compared to traditional automatic transmissions, resulting in sluggish acceleration.
Whining Noise: A high-pitched whining noise coming from the transmission is another common complaint, which may indicate a problem with the CVT's components.
It's important to keep in mind that not all Nissan Qashqais with CVTs will experience these issues, and the severity can vary widely.
