Sudden loss of power = new cvt for me

2005 Nissan Murano SL AWD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl CVT)


Have read the posts here and was told my sudden loss of power was the TPS. When it was being replace, tech noticed metal pieces in the tranny pan = new cvt. The failure code did not indicate a tranny problem but evidently there is one. The loss of power happened 4 times over the past 2 years, each time I took it directly to dealership and it would run fine. This time after the stalling I started it the next day to be greeted with a very ugly grinding sound. Turned it off and waited another day and it started fine, but lost ability to accelerate about 1/2 way to dealership. Engine light was not on for this episode, but has lit up with previous loss of power issues.

Best Features

Front seat comfort, style, all in all we love this vehicle, just hope the CVT reliability is no longer a problem.

Worst Features

Increase rear visibility so I don't have to crane to change lanes and backup. Mileage is below what I expected (13L/100kms city, 11 hwy).
