Problems with CVT Transmission
Owners of the Nissan Versa have experienced multiple transmission problems. Problems with the CVT transmission have been reported by many drivers, and a class action has been filed. Owners may be entitled to compensation or new vehicles because of the multiple problems. Here is one report:
“A Nissan Versa CVT (continuously variable transmission) lawsuit alleges the cars fail to accelerate and finally experience complete transmission failure that causes owners and lessees to pay thousands of dollars for CVT replacements and repairs.
The proposed class-action lawsuit includes all current and former owners and lessees of 2012 and 2013 Nissan Versas that are equipped with CVTs that allegedly fail within and shortly after the warranties expire.
A CVT is a modified automatic transmission that uses a single belt and a dual-pulley mechanism with a ‘drive pulley’ and ‘driven pulley’ that work opposite one another, constantly creating different gear ratios that allegedly allow smooth acceleration and deceleration.”
There are various remedies available to consumers besides waiting for class action settlements to be finalized. Call (973) 598-1980 for a free consultation about compensation and your rights.
