Asked by May 15, 2017 at 02:44 AM about the 2012 Nissan Altima 2.5

Question type: General

I have a 2012 Nisan Altima and the cvt transmission broke down, I contact my
dealer and they gave a number for Nissan consumer affairs then I contact
them I explained that my car cvt transmission started acting weird around the
20,000 miles even I let my dealer know about this issue but dealer said:"that
is normal" so the answer of Nissan consumer affairs was that they can't do
nothing for me because is no recalls for this year in particular, then I ask to
speak with a supervisor but I received the same answer.  Help me please!!!!!!!!

Has the dealer ever serviced it and how many miles on it now? I think they may have you over the barrel. If you can prove it maybe not but even then its a layer bill unless you can call everyday and do not mind being a total thorn in their side in nice way (Legally) and complain about it until they replace it on the house to get rid of you.


Keep going by to ask more questions and keep calling, be nice but never say o.k.,never accept this is not their bill to replace and tell them you see them replacing at their cost, and how you tried to get it took care of at 20k miles and they said no its normal, go away Nissian does not replace these, no recalls da da da ha ha ha bye now. Now your not going away until they replace it. Period. In a nice calm manner.


I've looked up lemon laws in Texas. if your transmission is under warranty and you have done 3 repairs during the time of warranty, you have a right to ask for a refund or they replace it but the replacement can be of a refurbished type. then it continues to work until you're out of warranty and your left to pay all repairs and prob have no legal recouse. mine just broke and I'm outta luck. Nissan knows CVT is a hit or miss, but they keep using them. CVT transmissions are trash, I just didn't know before I bought the car...
