2012 Nissan Versa 1.6 SV 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl CVT)
I run a fleet of vehicles including 5 of these.
We typically run our cars between 40k-50k mi. per year.
Of the 5, 2 of them had the CVT transmissions fail within the 1st year.
One of these now needs a second trasmission replacement at 82K.
Our local dealer, Harte Nissan in Hartford, CT, is working with us the best they can with the replacement costs but Nissan is not stepping up to the plate.
Nissan knows their CVT's are problematic and have extended their warranties on other years/models, but not this one.
I will not be buying any more Nissan's for our fleet.
BTW, even when they work correctly, the CVT is a annoying transmission especially with a small, low torque motor.
Fix the CVT or replace it with a more reliable option.
