problem #5

  • CVT transmission
  • 83,989 miles


My car stopped doing 75 on the highway and was broadsided by another person moments later. Two broken bones and a busted pelvis later they say nothing can be done until I have the car diagnosed. Who would want to drive an unpredictable car?

  • CVT transmission
  • 126,300 miles

Bought this car new with an Extended Warranty that would have covered the Transmission Failure up to 125K miles. Guess when it happened. 125300... Yup. Nissan won't honor the warranty, and frankly this is amongst tons of other similar complaints I see all over the place. I don't see a reason to fix this only to have it happen again in a few thousand miles since they obviously have a problem from the factory given the frequency of this happeining

Cube ES 1.8L 4-cyl

  • CVT transmission
  • 72,000 miles

My 5 year old 2011 Nissan Cube, with 72,000 miles on it, had it's transmission go out. They covered the 2008 thru 2010s but told me I was out of luck with the 2011, and wanted to charge me 4000-5000 to fix it. I've since seen so many complaints about their faulty transmissions online, but it's more important to Nissan that they deny there's a problem to to ensure generational customer loyalty and safety! I only got a Nissan because my mom and grandparents had always driven them.

Now I'm stuck spending everything I had in savings to fix this car. I hate it. The only thing I want to do is pay it off and trade it in for something reliable (not a nissan). They don't care about the quality of their autos or service.

  • Automatic transmission
  • 84,000 miles

I bought this 2011, 7 months ago. The transmission went out completely on the freeway without any type of warning. Total BS and the warranty is not being honored because I didn't get an oil change pre-approved by the company, even though an oil change has nothing to do with the transmission.

  • CVT transmission
  • 100,000 miles

I bought this vehicle from Larry Miller with 45,000 miles on it. I've had it 2 years and it started having problems. I was told the transmission needed to be replaced and I am outside of warranty. It's costing me $3700 to fix. I researched and saw they recalled up to 2010 miles for transmissions they extended the warranty to 120,000 miles but not on mine. So now I'm stuck replacing an EXPENSIVE transmission on my car and I'm being told the brand new transmission will only be warranty for 12,000 miles. It is absurd!!! That I have to replace a transmission on a THREE year old car...these cars should be outlawed BUYER BEWARE
