Hello,

I have a 2014 Nissan Versa Note with 110k miles on it. I used it for Uber / Lyft etc. Lately as I am driving the car, the rpm goes up and refuses to go down, unless i let go of the gas or put the car in neutral. It is almost like it is having trouble shifting or the right term i guess is "slipping". Once I let go of the gas, the rpm comes down and the car "jerks" / "jolts" a little bit, then when I hit the gas, after I think the rpm is back to normal, then it starts to go up, until I let go, this is how i drove it home and parked it in the garage. I think this is a transmission issue. I spoke to the dealership since it is CVT and they are saying 5k expense. I spoke to one mechanic that has CVT experience and he think the transmission oil or filter may need to be changed etc , his estimate is 2k. My questions are below though:

1. Is Nissan Versa Note and Nissan Versa Transmission the same? If so, I found one here for $550 with 5k miles on it. https://goo.gl/f8O2R8

2. Will it be better / cheaper to change the transmission or have it repaired like the mechanic told me?

3. Does transmission have fluids? If so how do I replace it?

Depends upon the production date! After 4/14, the CVTs changed. Were 31020-3JX6C; then went to 3102M. And, both of those superceded also to other #s .

Can't have the CVT repaired. Only replaced. Nissan does not have dealer technicians repairing CVTs.

Can't change the fluid anymore without special equipment. Nissan eliminated all CVT dipsticks and went to special test procedures for fluid changes.

Owners and garages can not service their own Nissan CVTs anymore.

Nissan CVTs have high replacement rate. They are known failures on Nissans.

Nissan extended CVT warranties. Not sure if yours falls into this or not.

Your choices are limited, and likely costly.

Wow. I have the same problem with my 2014 nissan versa. What was your solution? I have 65000 miles on mine but I bought an extended warranty from the used dealership. I want to make sure it gets fixed before my warranty runs out. Thanks in advance
