Altima CVT Lawsuit Goes Forward

In January 2019, a class-action lawsuit in federal court (one of several) continued after a judge ruled Nissan's motion to dismiss the suit was "meritless."

The plaintiff described the same saga thousands of Nissan CVT owners have suffered through: her 2014 Altima's CVT started shuddering, then failed in June 2018, resulting in a $3500 bill for replacement. Check out our Lawsuits page for more legal proceedings involving Nissan CVTs.

Faulty Transmissions

Continuously Variable Transmissions (CVTs) are fantastic for fuel economy and offer several other benefits -- when they work. Unfortunately for Nissan owners, various model years with CVTs have been plagued with rampant reports of early-mileage failure since they were first introduced in the 1990s.

No vehicle is perfect. Every manufacturer will occasionally discover a defect in a system as complicated as a modern automobile; that's just the nature of engineering. Are Nissan's CVTs getting a bad rap from a few extremely unlucky owners, or failing at a much higher rate than major powertrain components on competing vehicles? On this site, we present evidence pertaining to the CVT problem -- not just anecdotal, but numbers that can be compared directly with other makes and models.
