Hesitation on Acceleration
By Gary Nadeau on
2009 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)
When accelerating the car hesitates significantly. This happens primarily in going from slower to faster speeds and around 2000rpm. Then when you give it a touch more gas, it takes off. It borders on being dangerous. I'm currently trying to get Nissan to recognize that there is an issue. I feel like I'm getting the run around.
Words of advice to anyone interested in buying an Altima...., test drive, test drive, test drive the exact car you are going to buy. I'm learning that there are issues with the cvt trans and that they don't know which car will or will not have the problem.
