some issues but they need service approx every 30k miles not matter what they say. also tehy are very expensive to repair or repl. i would not buy a car with one

I respectfully have to disagree with the first answer. The transmission is sealed and therefore take very little service. Depending on the vehicle, it's true that they recommend service every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but it's only a fluid drain and refill. No substantial work is done and they are extremely reliable. Nissan is one of the best selling car brands in America, and virtually every car they make contains a CVT transmission.

If you would like to speak to one of our service advisors about your question, feel free to call our service department directly at 801.290.0251. I hope this helps.
