Cv transmission are reliable ( been around in many cars for more than 10 years )
however if the correct transmission oil Cv transmission oil and not ATF) is not used they will fail inside 20000 klms of operation
if there is a problem it is most likely from the servos and TCM unit
Suggest that you find an accredited specialist cv transmission shop rather than a general mechanic to get repairs and advice

My nissan maxima 2007 CVT transmission is running on low gear the check engine light comes on and it gives me code p1777. Can the fluid be low or can a faulty sensor be the problem.


Based on my experience on the Altima/Maxima CVT transmissions they have serious valve body issues. I'm sure that's not what you want to hear but the good news is there are fixes that work 75% of the time that do not require transmission removal or an new trans. Call some of your better trans shops in your area and take notes, see whom has the most knowledge. Hope this gets you on the right track.

Iam getting a delay of a few seconds whenever i shift between neutral and drive or neutral and reverse on my 2007 nissan tiida cvt transmission.


Have the oil changed and the filter checked . I have a Mitsubishi lancer and it is in good nick but If I apply power before the shift happens it chirps the tyres . have the bands and clutch pack adjusted Run fault codes to check for faulty solenoids and servos.

How do I add automatic transmission fluid? There is no information in the owners manual.


why do you need to add fluid into trans. it is a CVT trans, which doesnt require any service unless you are towing with vehicle. its a maintenance free trans unless of course you have a leak. just to give you heads up 1qt. of CVT fluid goes for around $20 a bottle (quart).

I have a 2009 Altima car and the transmission had to be replaced. Does Nissan have a history of problems with transmissions ?


the cvt transmissions have become a known issue, and nissan (in canada, not sure about usa) has since offered an extended warranty to 200000 KM ( 120000 M ).

CVT Transmission


I don't understand you problem, I have a 2007 maxima with CVT transmission, THERE ARE NO GEARS ! WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT? CVT = constant velocity transmission. It's like driving a golf cart.
