Hell, im new here, just got a 2015 versa automatic pure drive with 19k miles. i love the car. i believe its the cvt transmission?
i have a few questions. Sorry for spamming the site
1. while slowing down to a complete stop, right before the car stops it feels like it brakes more? almost like dropping a normal automatic into 1st. is this normal? no noises or clunks, almost like if i applied more pressure to the brakes feeling. ive coasted to a complete stop in neutral and the car doesnt do it, only in drive.
2.i believe theres no gears. but while cruising in city at like 1500 rpms it feels like the car shifts into a second gear and pick up more speed effortlessly? is this normal? again no clunks or noises. just something i notice.
3.sometimes when accelerating out of a complete stop it will just glide effortlesly and stay under 2000 rpm. but sometimes it will go up to 3000 ish rpms and almost feels like when your accelerating a car with a slight cluth slip. like some power isnt goin to the tires. is this normal?
Thank you for your time, and again sorry for spamming questions that have already been answered.
Also Nissan considers the engine braking of the CVT engine to be a feature rather than a hindrance. It reduces the overall wear and tear on the braking system since the transmission drag will help reduce the amount of brake you need to apply. I would tend to agree that this is a good thing since I've got about 87,000 miles on my car and am still on the original set of brake pads that came with the car.
