2010 Nissan Maxima CVT Issue (?)
The following day I took it to Courtesy Nissan (Tampa, Fl) and told them of the problem. After several hours they said that diagnostics did not find any problem, but when the tech took the vehicle for a test drive the vehicle was in fact lagging as I had reported. The tech contacted Nissan engineering because they had not heard of this problem(s) on a 2010 model. Nissan advised that there was something wrong in the transmission (I assume the CVT, but am unsure at this time) that made the vehicle it think that when starting from a stand still that it was in 3rd or 4th gear. Nissan is now sending some new part for the transmission. Now I am just waiting for Courtesy Nissan Tampa to call me that my maxima has been fixed.
I will keep you all posted as to the outcome and will use more technical terms as soon as I get the final report.
I am a first time Maxima owner and bought the Maxima because I have always heard that they are great vehicles and retain resale value more so than many other vehicles. I sure hope that this does not completely ruin my Maxima experience. Apart from this problem I have been absolutely loving the Maxima.
