  • I just bought a 2011 Nissan Altima with 39k miles. The first few days it was fine. Suddenly I have noticed a sound similar to the sound an engine would make when running at high RPM's like when a transmission is in a lower gear. However when driving the RPMS are a normal range (2k highway). When the car is driving slowly I put it in neutral to see if the sound went away (indicating possibly not a transmission problem) and the sound remained. Has anyone had similar symptoms and if so what have the results been?...thanks.

    2013 Altima 2.5 has vibration issue at 21000 miles. Nissan told dealer to tell me "it was normal." Obviously no one would buy the car if they experienced the vibration issue. Mine developed around 15-20,000 mile area. Before that it was good. Still working on finding a solution.

    I recently bought a 2014 Nissan Altima 3.5 V6 SL. This car keeps shuddering when travelling in speed range of 25-40mph, noticed this issue around 500 miles on odometer. I had to drop of my car at dealer who was able to replicate the issue but Nissan is clueless on how to fix the issue. Really had a great feeling when I test drove this car, but it has been giving me nightmares recently.

    I have a 2013 3.5SL with the same issue. Problem is called "judder" by Nissan and at least for 2013 there is a TSB (Technical Service Bulletin) issued by Nissan with instructions on how to diagnose and potentially cure the problem. Mine is in for the fourth or fifth time for this issue and is fast approaching the stage where Nissan will have to replace the tranny on their dime. It is a well know problem with this CVT and I am surprised there are no recalls associated with it.
