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.
