How long does a CVT (Continuous Variable Transmission) last?

Asked by Aug 16, 2016 at 08:00 AM about the 2015 Nissan Altima 2.5 SV

Question type: General

I bought a 2015 nissan altima a year ago that has a 2.5SV I4 engine with a
CVT transmission. I was wondering how long will the cvt last before
beginning to show some problems and how long will it last before breaking
completely. The car is is brand new straight from the dealership and I plan
on selling it after 4-5 years. I drive relatively smooth and try to put as little
stress as possible on the car, but as a 19 year old guy, I floor it and launch
control the car from time to time lol. Thanks in advance

The Nissan CVT will possibly be a nightmare at 100,000 miles or sooner. Do some research using "Nissan CVT Problems" as the search string.
