#134 of 208 this transmission issues are scary.

I am thinking on purchasing either 2011 Murano or Rogue, but these transmission issues are scaring me.
Nissan has extended the CVT transmission warranty to 10 yrs/120K mi for 08-10 Rogue, and 03-10 Murano, 2011 model year is not included. Does anyone know if they “fixed” transmission issues, or they are just being hopeful?
In all fairness, according to the Consumer Reports only 08 Rogue and 03-04 Murano have major transmission problems, all other models years are much above average. Hopefully, whatever issues they were having have been addressed.

I have no idea whether or not anyone believes the transmissions are fixed. I know mine was not...see my previous posts. I also know that Nissan was aware of manufacturing problems and refused to do anything to help me. I had to file under the Lemon Law and ended up trading in the vehicle. I certainly hope that does not give you any comfort...but if you choose to roll the dice, feel free.
#136 of 208 Transmission problem is throttle control problem
Dec 21, 2010 (1:24 pm)
Having the same issue here with my '09 Rogue (AWD 4cyl) as many of these posts. Not the noise-related tranny problem, but the loss of power - as if you're trying to take off from a stop in too high a gear, or as if the engine wasn't getting any fuel despite pressing the pedal to the floor.
The first time this happened, I tried manually "shifting" using the override, to no effect. Also tried dropping the car into neutral, and the engine revved just fine. So not a gearing issue and not a fuel availability issue. Assume it has something to do with the complex coordination required between the throttle and CVT, through the car's engine management control or throttle control.
First time we brought it in, dealer said it was actually related to a recent campaign, they adjusted, and the problem went away. About a month/2 later, the problem resurfaced, only worse. Car had to be towed to the dealer after just barely making it home. This time, my wife and two little kids were in the car. I'd say that going to pull out onto a busy road with a family in a car, and finding it's got no power but is still barely moving is a big safety issue.
This second time, it took a week to get the car back as the dealer had to wait several days for the part. I drove the car for a month before my wife would feel comfortable getting in it again (and don't blame her for it), which of course limits the utility of a second car.
10 months later, same thing happened (now 12,000 miles total on the car), right after my wife picked up the kids from school. She will, officially, never get in the car again and again, I don't blame her. We reached out to the dealer to indicate we want out of the lease; the response through them from Nissan was essentially, "Sure, pay us the balance of your remaining payments on the car and you can get out of it." The car is now on a tow truck to the dealer and a call to customer care suggested they want to await the verdict from the dealer's service department before they'll do anything. So we'll see. In the end, we want out of this very dangerous death trap. Based on what we're seeing here, it's appaling that this seems to be a problem that's not unique and deserves the attention of governmental authorities who are supposed to protect us from this kind of thing.

#139 of 208 2011 Rogue Krom Maintenance
Jan 10, 2011 (7:15 am)
Hi everyone! I came to this forum couple times before I purchased my Rogue. I got a Krom model while my friend got the SV model (both 2011). I will update my experience after 1,000 miles. Let's see if the 2011's Rogue still having the same problems (I hope not).
I have a maintence question regarding the special wheels that my krom has. I took a quick reading on owner manual yesterday. There is one thing that confused me. It said the krom model cannot be wash at the car wash! I am shocked! It said the acid will damage the body and the wheels. What? You want me to hand wash my car every time? It also states the underneath of car should be cleaned reguarly because of the snow salt (that I understand). Now I don't how to wash the underneath of the car without visiting the car wash? I like to hear your opinion. I appreciate your input. Thanks.

Do these problems pertain to the 2011 FWD CVT or does that matter at all? I'm researching cars and I can't find many decent ones I can afford... this is bad!

My 2011 has 3,400 miles and so far, so good. I know the mileage is still low, but so far the car has been reliable, fun to drive and comfortable. When I first found these discussions, after I bought the car, I was a wreck. Since then I've done a lot more research and asked everything i know to ask, read everything I know to read, and found a forum with a lot of satisfied customers, some with high mileage and no problems. So, I do like the car and I'm glad I bought it. It gets great gas mileage. I do have an extended warranty, so fingers crossed, I won't have the problems some of the people on this forum have experienced, but if I do, I hope it's covered by the warranty. At this point, I would recommend this vehicle.

About the car washing problem...I'm sorry no one has answered your question, but I really don't know the solution, except maybe go to one of those do it yourself places and try to spray underneath with lower pressure. I do know, I went through one of the newer drive thru car washes with an older model car and it left permanent stains on the black finished parts of the car, so I wouldn't risk it if I were you. It looks like someone poured something on top and it dripped down, but it will not come off.
