Does the 2014 Versa Note have the 'Xtronic' CVT?
I just limped into the Nissan Dealership with 51000 miles on my 2014 Versa Note on Friday April 22nd after having experienced major power loss that morning.
Driving home on the Freeway that afternoon, the dealership is 'on the way' home. The Goal was to drop the car off on Saturday... but, on the way home the power loss was so scary on the Freeway, that I made a beeline for the dealership, hoping and praying I'd make it there. Turning a corner and accelerating up a hill at the dealership provided for a loud 'thump' from up under the hood of the car.
Saturday, I get a call from the Dealer... "We will be replacing your Transmission", I was told it would be a re-manufactured
CVT. I was told the warranty would only go up to the original 60K Miles.
Why is this not being replaced with a New, and perhaps Improved CVT?
The reliability factor just took a nose dive for me on this car.
Nissan implemented a "CVT Customer Satisfaction Program" for Model Years 2003 to 2010 per:
and states on that page:
percentage of owners of early models equipped with CVTs have expressed concerns about the cost of repair of their transmissions after the warranty expires
. We take these comments about the cost of vehicle ownership seriously
. We strive to provide an exceptional ownership experience and are implementing a thorough Customer Satisfaction Program to address this topic."
Does this mean that Nissan is no longer concerned about my 'exceptional ownership experience' on my 2014 Nissan Versa Note ?
Had I known this information, I may have not even considered a Nissan with a CVT.
How long before Nissan extends Model Years 2011+ CVT warranties?
51,000 miles, Really?
Will I make it to 100K miles and being doing this again at my own expense due to what appears to be a Design Flaw of this CVT?
Thank you Nissan for a car that I have no confidence in anymore.
