Your Transmission is covered by a 10 year or 120,000 mile warranty - whether you're the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd owner. That's 100% parts and 100% labor. Bring it by a Nissan dealership to get checked out before it gets worse.

I had a similar issue in my 2012 altima 2.5. My symptoms were that when it was hot (90+), on the highway I would find myself stuck in 6th gear and unable to shift down or up. The car would shift with a change in speed, but barely enough to get off the highway to park (ie, it was always 1 gear or so above where it would have normally been). Stopping and turning the car off might fix for a little while. I took it to the dealership and they said the problem was that the transmission fluid was overfilled by as much as 2 qt. I've never done it or had it done, but Firestone (who does my oil changes) must have "topped it off" for me. Luckily they used the correct fluid or I would have really been screwed. This may be only one of many causes, and I don't know how to correctly gauge if its overfilled or how to resolve it, but that was what the dealership found. I recommend taking it to a dealership to get checked out over doing it yourself but its one possibility.
