2014 Nissan Altima S stalling

I have 2014 Altima S that has no problem starting but as soon as I try to put it in gear (Shift...it is automatic transmission) it stalls. Also if I apply brakes to stop the car it stalls too after giving couple of strong jolts. When running I dont feel anything wrong. I took it to the dealer and he says its CVT transmiision has gone bad which I dont feel right since when it is running there is no problem of any kind. All this is random.

    Is it still under warranty? If so, and at no cost to you, let the dealership fix it. I'm new to CVT's, myself, but if it were a standard automatic transmission, I would guess something was wrong with the torque converter. Do CVT's have a torque converter?

    No CVTs dont' have a torque converter but they do have a hydraulically activated clutch pack to engage and disengage the drive pulley so there may indeed be some relationship between a defective CVT and your stalling issue.

    @mohind5666 and @2014NAltimaS hey guys I'm having the same problem. My car does not give any error code but jerks at stop sign and then dies. How did you guys fix it ? What was the problem? I do not have warranty
