CVT Shuttering, Vibration, Hesitation, Running Roughly
2013 Nissan Altima (Page 1 of 9)
This problem may be covered under warranty. Ask your Nissan dealer.
CarComplaints.com Notes: The 2013 Nissan Altima has multiple problem trends including the CVT transmission, and now that this model is out of warranty, it earns our "Avoid Like The Plague" badge.
Owners complain about vibration and transmission failure related to the CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission), a whining noise from the power steering pump, and constant windshield problems that appear to be the result of poor design.
Be warned: the 2014 & 2015 Nissan Altima appears to share these same problems.

The CVT is randomly shuddering and wouldn't stop doing it at 40 mph. Gets much worse when the engine is cold. But of course when you bring it to the dealer they can't re-create the issue. My husbands 2015 Toyota Camry has 347,000 miles on it, and it still drives like a dream. I've replaced the CVT fluid every 40k miles. Car was purchased with 80k miles on the ODO. Ill never purchase another Nissan ever again, I make that a promise, these cars are meant to be disposable pieces of junk.
