Nissan Continuously Variable Transmission

Nissan’s innovative Continuously Variable Transmission uses a belt system instead of fixed gears. This method helps provide a constant smooth motion that performs seamless shifting, better acceleration, and improves fuel mileage. Instead of shifting gears, the CVT is always ready with a variable gear for any driving situation. The Continuously Variable Transmission has a proven track record of offering:

  • Stronger acceleration from a standing start
  • Rapid & seamless acceleration during merging and passing
  • Always in the right gear - no gear hunting
  • Significant improvement in the fuel economy
  • Smooth and quiet at cruising speed

How the CVT Works

The CVT is an automatic transmission that uses two pulleys with a steel belt running between them. To continuously vary its gear ratios, the CVT simultaneously adjusts the diameter of the 'drive pulley' that transmits torque from the engine and the 'driven pulley' that transfers torque to the wheels. With stepless shifting of gear ratios, the CVT can avoid the shift-shock and deliver smooth driving, making it an exceptional transmission solution.

Transmission Failure Warnings Signs

Although Continuously Variable Transmissions generally have fewer issues than normal transmission due to not having to change gears and experience the same level of friction. Issues can still arise due to driving habits, damage, and other unforeseen variables. Common warning signs to look out for include:

  • Unable to switch gears or slipping gears
  • Burning smells and odd noises
  • Leaking fluid or check engine light
  • Grinding or shaking 

Nissan 10K Mile Service

The 10k mile service is one of the mileage-based maintenance services being offered by car dealerships today. Aside from this, some dealers also offer 15k and 20k mile services. Generally, by around 10,000 miles of running up and down, your vehicle is due for its first service maintenance. This initial service round is not really very demanding, and it usually just includes the need for tire rotation, air filter, oil change and parts (cooling and brake systems) inspection.

  • Change of Spark Plugs
  • Change of primary lubricant for chaincase lubricant and Cleaning of drain plug
  • Checking and adjustment of the primary chain

Many other services are included in the 10K Mile Service, our service center technicians would be more than happy to help you with!
