delay in acceleration

Postby YOSSARIAN_Paso » Sat Jan 11, 2020 8:44 am

Hi everyone,
a quick question. I just bought a used 2016 Rogue SL AWD and I am quite happy about that, with one exception, and I am trying to understand if it's normal.
If I accelerate from 0 speed, everything is fine.
If I am traveling, I slow down (for instance to make a turn) to speed between 5 and 20mph (about 1200 rpm), and then I accelerate again, I get no response for a fraction of a second and then a rabbit jump; as if the transmission stayed like in 4th gear for a while at low speed, then realized with a delay that it was time to switch to a lower gear.
Now, it could be perfectly normal (I drove all life manual shifts, with the only exception of a BMW X1, which has an excellent 8 speed automatic transmission where I don't see this issue), and maybe I just need to get used to it

thanks!

A Jack rabbit, jerky, shuddering start. I use to get that all the time after starting the car or leaving the stoplight. Some of the worse times was after backing down from a driveway and going from reverse to drive, the delay was ridiculous and the jerking forward was pretty bad.
A wtf moment for me everytime, Cuz, I didn't understand what was going on or if this was how a cvt runs.

Thought that was normal for this crappy cvt.

Then I did a CVT drain & fill, most likely the cure and also drained the differential & transfer case for added measure.

I no longer have that dreaded delay in acceleration. The best way to describe it is that it no longer has a disconnected feel.

It has a solid robust link from accelerator pedal to engine.

None of that jerky feel and mini whiplash I was getting before.

Dont settle for less, the whole reason for the cvt is to no longer have those shift points. Its actually suppose to accelerate like an electric golf cart.

If you really want to have that kinda normal delay in acceleration, I got that all day long when I rode with my ex in her manual Mustang and RX-8.

Hence, any delay in acceleration = not normal.
My 2009 Rogue no longer has any jack rabbit starts, shudder, or delays whatsoever.

OCD really magnified those symptoms, now I don't think about it no more. The last 30,000 miles I drive in amazement and appreciation in how it drives really smooth. Seriously, I can't feel my steering wheel vibrate. I have to make sure I don't grind my engine because i can't tell if it's on at times. So I glance at my rpm gauge to double check.

But it's always back in my mind when my cvt will eventually fail,

Original cvt here. :whistle:

Wow, thanks for the explanation.
Although, I am still confused for a couple of reasons:
- why I don't experience it when I accelerate from 0 speed?
- the car has just 35k miles, isn't it too early to see these issues?

I can give it a try, any idea of how much a dealer would charge for the drain and fill?
