#58 of 64 Shifting problems
Aug 20, 2012 (5:31 pm)
I have a 5 speed manual transmission in a Sentra 2000. first thru fourth work good. Reverse works good. When you shift to 5th (over drive) you can not down shift to any gear AT ALL!!! It is not consistent on how it finally releases. Sometimes shaking (slamming) the shifter side to side will work but not to often. Most of the time just cut the engine off and back on, or just wait for a period of time for it to release. I believe in the process my daughter has burnt the clutch up and is now needing replacing. Any ideas on why it is sticking in 5th gear. You can pull it out of 5th gear just can not shift to any other gear until it decides you can. Please help.

This is the third transmission installed on my 2008 Nissan Sentra. After 67,672 miles the first one broke down where the car had to be towed 95 miles to the Nissan Dealer. The second one broke down at 68,845, only 2 weeks after getting it back, 173 miles. Nissan extended their warranty on this CVT transmission, because of the problems, from 5 years 60,000 miles to 10 years 120,000 miles. Since the transmission broke down at 7,672 miles from the initial warranty, the BBB advised the Lemon law cannot be applied since it is after the initial warranty 5 years 60,000 miles even though it was extended. Nissan being aware of this will not buy back the vehicle but just keeps replacing the transmissions until 10 years 120,000 miles. The CVT transmissions on this car keeps burning up where they no longer work. It is very unsafe and unreliable to take on any long trips. They are aware of this problem and just keep replacing it with rebuilt transmissions. Buyers Beware!!!

I have a 2009 Sentra and received a letter from Nissan extending the warranty to 10 years 120,000 miles. So far, no problems with the transmission. Were there any symptoms or warning signs that something was going on with your transmission that wasn't normal or did it just stop working?

My 2007 Nissan Sentra has had the transmission replace 3 times (1st time at 25,000 miles). It is just began failing (again) for the fourth time and I took it in to the dealership. I was first told about the 10 year warranty and that it would be replaced, but then a supervisor was called over who reneged saying that they might "get in trouble" for replacing it a fourth time. I asked what they intended to do instead and was told that they would "fix the problem". I had just been told that they were working on (but do not yet have a solution) so I asked exactly what that meant and the supervisor said "uh er well we need to talk to our rep". Uhhhhhhmmm?? Also they asked if I had driven anywhere out of town lately --as if it were my fault for assuming my newish car (that I am still paying for) could drive further than 30 miles continuously. Actually I have job that requires me to drive all over San Diego (up to 60 miles away) so apparently I am not supposed to use my car to get to work anymore because the transmission just can't take it. They basically said that even if they do replace it, it'll just break again if I do much freeway driving. Waiting to see how this all pans out. I wouldn't count on that warranty though.
