#249 of 258 My Transmission Story
Feb 09, 2013 (2:08 pm)
Bought a used 2010 Nissan Altima with 42k miles in October 2011. The first 100 mile trip, after pulling into town at a stoplight, it turns green and I go nowhere. It just "slips" for about 10 seconds before slowly moving forward. Long story short, it happened a couple more times. Once back home, it runs fine, no "slippage" when not on long trip. My SES light comes on yesterday, I take it to the dealer, they're going to have to replace the transmission. It has 53k on it. I had bought an extended warranty, so it's covered. Whew!! Also said my back 2 shocks had blown, and my wipers were streaky. Wipers?! Are you kidding me!! LOL!! Supposed to be the middle of next week for the new transmission to arrive.

Sounds like one of the symptoms mine developed at the end.
"It has 53k on it. I had bought an extended warranty, so it's covered."
According to the 2010 Altima warranty booklet your car has a 60 month, 60K mile powertrain warranty. Nissan should be paying for the replacement, not your extended warranty company.

Sorry to hear about your trouble. The Nissan warranty does cover the new CVT transmission. I would hope your dealership told you that. I bought a 2008 Nissan Altima about 1 1/2 years ago. I have about 62,000 miles on it. This has been the best car I have ever owned. I absolutely love it and would buy another. I commute about 70 miles every day and have not had any problems. Again sorry that you had trouble with yours and hope you get your car back soon!

IF YOU HAVE HAD A FAILED CVT TRANSMISSION OR A FAILING ONE GO TO THE NISSAN DEALER AND GET IT REPLACED FOR FREE!!!!!!! THATS RIGHT. MY 2007 ALTIMA HAD A PROBLEM AND THEY REPLACED THE CVT FOR FREE AND EVEN GAVE ME A RENTED CAR FOR THE ENTIRE TIME THAT THEY HAD MY CAR.
CHECK IT OUT HERE
THEY HAVE EXTENDED THE WARRANTY TO 120000 MILES SO GO GET IT NOW. JUST WANTED TO SHARE WITH EVERYONE.

IT COVERS FAILURES AS FAR BACK AS 2010. SO IF YOU ALREADY PAID FOR IT THEY WILL REIMBURSE YOU. THIS DOESNT HAPPEN EVERYDAY SO LETS ALL TAKE ADVANTAGE OF IT.

I HAD A 2010 ALTIMA, THE DEALER REPLACED THE TRANSMISSION TWICE, THEY GAVE ME LOANER EVERYTIME MY CAR WAS DOWN (5 TIMES- OVERALL DOWN TIME APPROXIMATE 30 DAYS) THE THIRD TIME THE TRANSMISSION FAILED NISSAN ACCEPTED TO BUY THE CAR BACK FROM ME. IT ONLY LAST ME 1 YEAR - 15,000 MILES. I AM DRIVING A HONDA ACCORD NOW. I HOPE NISSAN CAME UP WITH AN IMPROVED TRANSMISSION THIS TIME.
#255 of 258 Failed CVT - rental car covered?
Mar 30, 2013 (2:21 pm)
To anyone who has had their CVT repaired on the extended warranty, does Nissan cover a rental car while it is being repaired? My car is 300 miles away (broke down 4 hours from home) and I have no one who give me rides, and public transportation is also not an option. I am a full time M-F, 8-5 student who cannot miss school. Hoping someone has good news about a rental car coverage!

Shandi, my dealer offered me a rental car without me even asking.

The answer is YES Nissan does cover the cost of rental and it should be provided. They gave me one without even asking but i had to know more so i asked.
#258 of 258 Having trouble with '09 Altima 3.5 SE CVT Transmission
Apr 22, 2013 (2:01 pm)
Hello I recently bought 2009 Nissan Altima 3.5 SE equipped with CVT Transmission. I'm experiencing some trouble with its transmission. When I let go off accelerator engine makes a rattling sound and when it decelerate the engine gives a strong jerk and this jerk also happens when I accelerate the car. At high speed the car runs smoothly but at low speed I experience these problems. My car has done 76,000 kms on it. So warranty is expired.
I took it to Nissan Service in Saudi Arabia and they didn't mentioned anything about the transmission but after that when I took it to private workshop the mechanic pointed out that it's a transmission fault. Plus nothing was detected on computer diagnose testing by both Nissan and private workshop.
So any suggestions on what should I do and what could be the exact problem and how it can be rectified?
