CVT Performance Needs Attention
By Shelly on


2008 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)


I have owned this vehicle for over 2 years. Love everything BUT the CVT Transmission! It hesitates upon acceleration, it jerks (like a manual transmission that needs shifted) at 35-40 mph. To me...it's EMBARRASSING, I feel like I am driving a sub par vehicle when I have a passenger with me. Hello Nissan, 35-40 miles an hour in the city is the speed limit! Please, please fix this issue...it is making me CRAZY! Love the sportier feel over my previous Camry, but with Nissan aware of this issue and not having a fix for it yet is just ridiculous. Thank goodness this car is going to be passed down to my 16 year old soon so I can get another vehicle.

Best Features

Push button start, sporty feel, exterior look.

Worst Features

Fix for CVT Transmission issue.
