Big mistake, transmission out at 23k miles

2009 Nissan Altima 2.5 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)


I bought this car after was told it is sporty to drive. It might be sporty for old folks. The engine is loud as a jet taking of every-time you accelerate.
My main issue with the car is highway driving. After driving on highway for more than two hours and then you decide to get off an exit for gas or a quick break, the car won't move. It has done that to me every time i had come to a stop after highway driving. It is very dangerous because the car won't move at all while the gear is on D and gas pedal pressed all the way down to the floor.
Dealer wants to replace transmission.
The second thing is this car is the worse vehicle for winter driving, especially in snow.
