Hi...New here! I have a 2013 Versa SL with a 1.8 CVT transmission. Within the past few months, I noticed that my car drives with high RPM's when cruising on the highway. Example...At approx 60 mph, my RPM's hover around and over 3000. And if I get it to 75 mph, the RPM's sit between 3200-3400 (these are all cruising speeds, not accelerating speeds). I don't remember it running that high in the past...Not over 2500 anyways. It almost feels like it doesn't slip into the most efficient 'gear'. I know CVT's don't have gears so perhaps ratio would be more accurate. Nothing else really gives me any worry that the actual transmission is on the way out. Dealership has already tried resetting the TCM but no changes to my RPM.
Next issue (and possibly related to the above?)...My car only has 80,000 miles on it, and I've already replaced my serpentine belt twice. Anyone else notice a very short life on these belts? Dealership tells me that this is normal.
Any thoughts/suggestions welcomed
