  1. CHRISTINE ROSS says:

    I have bought 2 nissan rogues..and had to replace both transmissions..definetly a transmission defect..Nissan is rediculous.

  2. CHRISTINE ROSS says:

    You would think since 2008 when the cvt transmission were failing .they would have stopped making them.but no they made so much more money in repairs for 8 more years.2017 nissan rogues , now do not have cvt transmissions..I will fight it to the bitter end.

    • CARGUY says:

      Yes, 2017 and 2017.5 Rogue’s and Rogue sports do still have CVT’s. So do the Sentra, Altima, Versa, Maxima, Pathfinder, Juke, Murano and so on. The Titan, Frontier, Armada are the only ones without a CVT….also the only ones not plagued with constant transmission problems. They still know how to build decent conventional autos…they should really go back to them.

  3. Bonnie Porchay says:

    I bought a Nissan Maxima and had the transmission replaced not to long after I bought it.

    ADMIN – Hi Bonnie,

    If your Nissan was a 2014 or 14 model meeting all the other requirements set forth by the class eligibility section you can go ahead and file a claim.

  4. Michelle says:

    Hi. I have a 2013 Sentra that had a transmission replaced once, and it will have to be replaced again (just found out) Can I join?

    ADMIN – Hi Michelle,

    You can’t:
    You are a Settlement Class Member and part of the settlement if you purchased or leased in the United States or its territories, including Puerto Rico, a 2013-2014 model year Nissan Pathfinder or a 2013-2014 model year Infiniti JX35/QX60 equipped with the FK-*k2 CVT.

  5. Linda Thompson says:

    My 2013 Rogue transmission is going out. Why are these cars not included in this lawsuit? These transmissions are seriously flawed.

    ADMIN – Hi Linda,

    If you believe there is a product-wide defect I encourage you to contact a class action lawyer.

    • Linda Thompson says:

      I took my Rogue to the dealer for repair. I had an extended warranty i had purchased six months before. Nissan “recommended” a trans cooler. It did not come standard on the car. I called 1800nissan1 and made a claim. they paid 70% of the cooler and installation. They know theses CVTs are defective. If you are having a problem, call Nissan. By the way, the plate for the cooler is on back order due to high demand. Call 1800nissan1.

  6. Ozreald Martin says:

    My 2013 Nissan Altima Transmission went out in 2015 and again on 2017. I let the lien holder come and pick the car up because I could not afford to pay the note and get the car fixed.

  7. Maliaka Pinkney says:

    My JX35 Infiniti transmission has been slipping since in bought it in 2013. I took it in for service and now it is slipping again. Is there a way to get this fixed? My transmission will stick in 1st gear for at least 60 seconds before it shifts. Also if I brake the transmission will quickly jump back to first gear.

    ADMIN – Hi Maliaka,

    I don’t think this has to do with transmission slippage. It has to do with vibration

  8. William says:

    I have a 2010 nissan rogue and just had to replace the transmission we really need to add these into the law suit. I also had a 2013 nissan altima and the trans went out in traffic which caused a major accident totalled my car and another as well . No good help us out with a class action suit

  9. Tameka says:

  10. Dee says:

    What about the 2004 Nissan Altima? Great car except for the transmission failed horrific.

    ADMIN – Hi Dee,

    The Altima is not included in the settlement.

  11. Sylvia Hannah says:

  14. LYNDA MCMORRIES says:

    2008 Nissan xterra cost me 10,000 in repairs

  15. Litoyia Spears says:

    My husband and I purchase a 2013 Nissan Pathfinder in July 2013 and we had to trade it in due to transmission problem we carried back to let them see what the problem but every time we carried that seem to not be able find anything wrong with it so we trade it in

  16. Jamie Bates says:

    My 2008 Nissan Altima transmission is also having issues as well as my moms Nissan Murano… And Nissan dealer said they had a recall in Japan for this issue but not in US… unless it causes an accident there is nothing that can be done.. Grinds my gears.. Pund intended…

  17. Less then 2 year 20K Dead Leaf Battery says:

    How is a extended warranty worth anything when Nissan will not honor the base warranty?

    ADMIN – Hi There,

    I don’t know. If Nissan won’t honor the warranty I encourage to get a hold of a lawyer.

  18. Kristin Cuellar says:

    I am having transmission problems with my vehicle. Did a CVT reprogram but did not help any with gear shifting from 1st gear to 2nd gear unless I let go of gas pedal and it reaches 4,000 rpm’s

    I saw that there was a class action lawsuit for 2013-2014 model year Nissan Pathfinder and Infiniti JX35/QX60 vehicles that was settled. The Class was represented by Cory Watson PC, Berger & Montague PC, Newsome Melton LLP, Weil Quaranta PA, and Capstone Law APC.

    I think all 2014 Versa car owners should contact Cory Watson PC to see if they can represent us. This is ridiculous

    ADMIN – Hi Kristin,

    You should. Sounds like a great plan.

  19. Kaity says:

    I have a 2013 Nissan Pathfinder, had a lot of problems since I purchased it, I had to bring it to the dealership at least 3 times about the shuddering,shaking problem before they admitted the transmission needed to be replaced. Since then it had to go back another 3 times because it was still not right. I have always owned a Toyota, I’m sorry I switched to a Nissan, the quality is not reliable.

  20. Denise says:

    I just bought a 2014 nissan sentra and the transmission just went out after 1 month of buying .

  21. Yulondra Rhone says:

    What about a 2005 Nissan Pathfinder

    ADMIN – Hi Yulondra,

    Per the terms of the settlement your car is not included.

  22. Ken says:

    My 2013 Pathfinder is getting its 3rd CVT replaced right now by the dealer. It has 81,000 miles on it.

  23. Audra Nations says:

    I received notifications a while back on my patherfinder and the class action but haven’t heard the results

    ADMIN – Hi Audra,

    Did you file a claim?

  24. Sam Stancil says:

    I have a 2015 Pathfinder. We are having a hesitation in the transmission on take off.
    The passenger side airbag keeps turning off also.

  25. Sonya Bolden says:

    I have a 2012 Nissan Altama and my car is doing the same thing.

    ADMIN – Hi Sonya,

    I am sorry about that.

  26. Heather Jenkins says:

    Are there any class action lawsuits against 2008 Nissan Rogues? My daughter has one and bought it used. It is now sitting in a parking lot because it will not accelerate. Please help..the truck isn’t even lid off at this point.

    ADMIN – Hi Heather,

    None at this time.

  27. debbie Phillips says:

    I bought a new 2006 Nissan frontier truck, my transmission stop working at only 80,000 miles, no one would help me or back me at Nissan. My truck is park in my driveway. I took my truck to every recall. never will I buy a Nissan again.

  28. Vienna Pearson says:

    I have a 2013 Nissan Rogue and the transmission was acting up and not performing like it should. I discovered it’s the CVT and of course Nissan says it’s not covered under warranty. I will have to pay 3,500 to replace. I had a Murano and I liked it but now this Rogue is terrible. I will not purchase any more Nissan vehicles.

  29. Constance Guion says:

    I have a 2007 Nissan Pathfinder LE. Is it include in the class action

    ADMIN – Hi Constance,

    You are a Settlement Class Member and part of the settlement if you purchased or leased in the United States or its territories, including Puerto Rico, a 2013-2014 model year Nissan Pathfinder or a 2013-2014 model year Infiniti JX35/QX60 equipped with the FK-*k2 CVT.

    Per the class eligibility as bolded above you are NOT a member of the class.

  30. Ron Huminski says:

    Our vehicle is identified as being in the class for the CVT transmission class action. I saw that a final decision was to be made in June. We have not heard a result. What is the next step?

    ADMIN – Hi Ron,

    Did you file a claim?

  31. Gabby Kerr says:

    I replaced my 2011 maximas transmission this year with only 60k miles on it. I purchased an extended warranty so I only had to pay a deductible but that’s pretty ridiculous for a transmission to go out with that many miles. I’ll never buy a Nissan again. It’s too bad we can’t start a suit against them for using these awful transmissions in any of their cars.

  32. Paule Skirkanich says:

    Had my 2005 Nissan Murano transmission repaired this past year…almost $2000!!!!!! Will never buy a vehicle with a CVT ever again.

  33. Nikesha Riley says:

    I purchased th jx35 2013 and I have had to put my car in the shop twice for the CAT tranmissionand the axle…what a pain to have a car of you dreams and be in the loaner car from month to month…simply uncool.

  34. Roosevelt Frazier says:

    I purchased a 2009 murano sl with this transmission in march 2015 it vibrates at 75-80mph am I a part of this class?

    ADMIN – Hi Roosevelt,

    Murano is not included in the class.

  35. Amorette N Rodriguez says:

    Well I purchased a used Nissan Marano in 2013 had low milieage but transfer case was failing. I took the car back to the Nissan dealer twice within the thirty day period and they assured me it was the breaks. They replaced the breaks but problem remained. Took it back again and it was the drive shaft and barrings that to was repaired but problem remained. They fixed everything but what was the real issue while it was under its two year extended warranty. Suddenly it hit the mileage mark and warranty expired and they say it was the transfer case. I only got one year of good use and the car stopped moving and was parked for over a year because the part was to expensive to fix. Couldn’t trade it or I would be upside down and finally to point of surrendering the car. Filed a complaint with Nissan consumer affairs with all the details and will be filing a suit on my own. The car is still not running.

    ADMIN – Hi Amorette,

    We wish you the best possible outcome in court.

    • Courtney Kilpatrick says:

      Im trying to get a class action lawsuit started. I took my car to nissian at 23,000 miles because something was wrong with the transmission. They reset some codes, took the car back to nissian the said was nothing wrong with my car but again the reset more codes. Finally calles consumer affairs n the ended up sending me to another nissian when found I had metal in the transmission pan. Nissian paid because the first nissian didnt follow. Protocol. My car idles by itself and im scared im going to hurt myself. I believe Nissian workers are trained to tell u nothing’s wrong but soon as tge warranty is up the find all kind of things my email is Ckilpatrick73@yahoo.com

      ADMIN – Hi Courtney,

      If you believe you are part of a class you need to reach out to a class action attorney.

  36. Belinda Rousseaux says:

    My 2013 Nissan Rogue has less than 90,000 miles is having many issues. Speed would suddenly slow down and has problems with accelerations, especially going on hills, also transmission is giving up. I’m afraid to drive it!

  37. rey a.reyno says:

    rey reyno

    my 2007 nissan frontier se crewcab v6 ;last friday 09/22/2017 , i had to drop it at AAmco shop . i was told radiator fluid had leadked into the transmission and burnts it out .that is why transmission failed .

    ADMIN – Hi Rey,

    Your particular model is not part of this settlement.

  38. Annette says:

    We have a 2013 Nissan Pathfinder with 81,000 miles and after replacing the valve body twice the dealership has recommended the transmission be replaced. Because it is an intermittent problem the dealer has not been able to duplicate it while connected to their laptop, which is what Nissan Global is requiring for repair authorization. So even though it is throwing a code that indicates a problem, Nissan won’t honor the 84,000 mile warranty extension they agreed to in order to settle the class action lawsuit.

    ADMIN – Hi Annette,

    Have you tried contacting Nissan customer service?

  39. Jennifer says:

    I have a 2014 Nissan Pathfinder and had my transmission replaced because my car stopped working while driving to my kids doctor appointment. Scariest moment in my life being stranded with 3 kids under 4. If this was an issue why weren’t we notified? Since being replaced I still have issues with it shaking and sounding funny. An employee told me it’s probably because I drive hard, not the case.

    ADMIN – Hi Jennifer,

    The class action administrator usually sends notifications. Sadly most people discard them as junk mail. I encourage you to sign up for our newsletter that way you will never miss out on potential settlements.

  40. Kathy Croasdale says:

    If we are part of the class, what is our first step? I just had my 2014 pathfinder transmission go out.

    ADMIN – Hi Kathy,

    If you are a member of the class these are the benefits:
    Extended Warranty. Nissan will extend the terms of the Nissan New Vehicle Limited Warranty for the transmission assembly (including the valve body and torque converter) in all Class Vehicles by twenty-four (24) months or twenty-four thousand (24,000) miles, whichever occurs first (the “Extended Warranty”). The Extended Warranty will not apply to the Automatic Transmission Control Unit (“ATCU”). Current owners and lessees of Class Vehicles do not have to do anything to obtain the Extended Warranty benefit.
    2) Special Pricing on a New Vehicle. For former owners of Class Vehicles who had two (2) or more CVT replacements or repairs to the transmission assembly, valve body and/or torque converter during their ownership experience, are eligible for pre-negotiated pricing under the Nissan and Infiniti Vehicle Purchase Program (“VPP Pricing”) for a purchase or lease of a single new Nissan or Infiniti vehicle. The election to use the VPP Pricing must be exercised for a lease or purchase on or before March 15, 2018, and the option is not transferable.
