Transmission issue

2013 Nissan Pathfinder Platinum 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl CVT)


I noticed that every time i step on the gas from stop the car feels like auto transmission shifting/jerking and the RPMs drop suddenly from about 3500 to 2500. The dealer is saying that it's normal but I don't trust them. Does someone else experience the same jerking problem?

Also it's a shame that the car doesn't have Blind spot monitor. All competitors have it.

Worst Features

Need blind spot monitor.
