2012 Nissan Versa sv 4 door sedan with cvt transmission. Vehicle is jerking when trying to accelerate over 65 mph. RPM gauge will bounce from 3000-4000 while the vehicle is shuddering. This vehicle has had many complaints about the cvt transmission since 2007 and Nissan still has not done anything to resolve the problem. A recall should be issued since this is a very dangerous situation on the highway when the transmission will finally breakdown. I hope that this can be fixed and Nissan will own up to the bad workmanship on the transmission. I will continue to post as the transmission gets worse. Thank you!

When driving down the highway, my Versa went into neutral but the shift still said D for drive, had no acceleration took to dealer and they passed it off as nothing because nothing read on the computer system and they basically said in a round about way I'm a woman are you sure you didn't bump it into neutral? then a month later had it back as it did the same thing but this time I was going 25 mph. Hooked it up to the computer again and there was nothing reading and reset the computer system. Happened again but was in our parking lot and just blew it off as the dealer would just tell me nothing was wrong. Just yesterday (6/29) as I was turning into the park I work at it slipped back into neutral, then all the electrical went out, no power steering, but the engine was still going, electrical came back on and then the car died as I was going about 20 mph and it quit all together on me shut down. Had to push it to a parking stall and call a tow to the dealer, once at the dealer they hooked it up to the computer and 3 errors for fuel system and 1 error for transmission came up. I'm just thankful that it didn't cause an accident when this has happened. I have it documented that it has been at the dealer now 3 times for this same issue.
