So my Versa recently had the TCM replaced to try to fix some problems with the CVT. Nissan dealer said that it didn't fix the problem, and they ordered a transmission. I was driving the car on the highway after they replaced the TCM and it was revving really high just to keep speed going, transmission wasn't working correctly, even less correctly than before they replaced the TCM (yeah, wtf). Now I am in a loaner Prius from the dealership while they wait to get the new CVT and install it. Hoping that the CVT they get is one that's been tweaked since 08.

All of this is under warranty and free, very impressed with the dealership service, aside from the issues and long waits for parts from Nissan (holidays.)

Actually, Nissan has plenty of stock on CVT's. Mostly because they suck. Horribly. All cars should be manual shift IMO anyways. lol. We do atleast one or two a week
Any idea why the new TCM would make the car run so much worse than when it had the old TCM?

I dont understand why they would put a TCM in in the first place. We havent done one. Just trannys
Said they thought the problem was the TCM not communicating properly with the ECM (which ironically is probably what is happening now...before it just slipped sometimes and was kind of weird now I had to give it to them because it's basically undriveable.)

I dont know. Maybe nissan usa is going on a different procedure than nissan canada
Are you guys putting in the latest version of the CVT or does it depend on model year? I assume they've been tweaking and improving it a bit?
