5th Generation Altima Owners Want an Extended CVT Warranty

Altima owners have been waiting for a recall and/or extended warranty for the terrible continuously variable transmission (CVT) in the 2013 and 2014 model years. Well, certain owners decided they’ve waited long enough and sued Nissan.

[The plaintiff] says his Altima suffered from delayed acceleration, juddering and slow response times, then in December 2016 the car finally stalled. After being towed to a Nissan dealer, the plaintiff was told the transmission would need to be replaced.

Nissan extended the CVT warranty to 10 years / 120,000 miles for the 2007-2010 model years. They also offered reimbursement for previous repairs.

I’m guessing there are plenty of 2013-2014 owners who would be very happy with that same deal.
