This has happened three times. Twice this morning...

I was cruising on back country roads, about 40-45 mph and went downhill. Now often when going downhill I'll see the RPMs hit about 3K. So it almost feels like engine breaking on my Prius. I figured this was just part of the

This time the RPM's not only went up to around that 3K mark, the needle was visibly fluxuating. And the vehicle was as well. It felt like the CVT transmission was having difficulty deciding "just where" it should be. I figured it was just a fluke.

Should I be concerned? Is this normal CVT behavior? Insights?

A lot of my family and friends have Nissan's with CVT's (Sentra and Altima mostly although no Versa's) and if this happened I'm sure I would have heard about it from em. I'd see if you can replicate the problem and if so speak with a Nissan Tech about it (ask for a Tech II, the first ones you get usually know next to nothing).

This is completely normal. I have the Versa Sedan and have experienced the exact same thing. Spoke to my dealer and they said it was the CVT trying to use engine compression on the incline.
