2013 nissan sentra transmission

2013 nissan sentra transmission DEFAULT

For its upcoming 2013 Sentra, Nissan has done a fair amount of work upgrading interior refinement, adding new technology, and increasing fuel economy. These improvement may not come as much of a surprise to industry watchers, as the car has already been released on other parts of the globe.

Nissan has done conservative work on the exterior, borrowing design aesthetics from that of the larger Altima with the new trapezoid-shaped grill and LED-wrapped headlights. Along the way, the new shape has shed 5 percent, or 150 pounds, of its overall weight.

On the inside Nissan makes a Dual Zone Automatic Temperature Control (ATC) system available for the first time in the Sentra. A new version of NissanConnect with navigation has also made an appearance and is available with Pandora and Hands-Free Text Messaging Assistant, which reads and sends text messages without drivers having to move their hands from the steering wheel.

Under the hood, Nissan added a new DOHC 1.8-liter, four-cylinder engine mated to a brand-new Xtronic CVT transmission that is lighter in weight and more efficient overall. This combination helps provide the Sentra with 130 horsepower and 128 pound-feet of torque as well as fuel economy of 30 mpg city and 39 mpg highway.

We have yet to determine how these improvements affect the way it drives, but we should be able to get our hands on it in the near future.

2013 Nissan Sentra debuts with improved CVT, 40 MPG

Official
If this big reveal of the 2013 Nissan Sentrafeels a bit anticlimactic to you, know that you aren't alone. Not only have we seen the new Nissancompact do its slow striptease on the spy shotcircuit, the car already debuted for the Chinese market as the Sylphyduring this year's Beijing Motor Show. Still, that doesn't make it any less of a big deal.

The new model is roughly 150 pounds lighter than the car it replaces.

The 2013 Sentrafollows in the footsteps of Nissan'slarger Altimasedan, and not just in terms of design. We already knew this new C-segment car was going to look a lot like its big brother, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing. It may not be as aggressive as a Ford Focusor Dodge Dart, but it's a conservatively handsome little thing nonetheless, offering premium touches like LED running lamps, attractive 17-inch wheels and LED taillamps out back. A close focus on weight savings has been applied to this seventh-generation Sentra, and the new model is roughly 150 pounds lighter than the car it replaces.

Under the hood, the outgoing Sentra's 2.0-liter inline-four has been ditched in favor of a smaller and oddly less powerful 1.8-liter unit. This engine produces 130 horsepower and 128 pound-feet of torque – losses of 10 and 19, respectively – and is mated to the company's next-generation Xtronic continuously variable transmission. Only the base Sentra S is available with a six-speed manual 'box. Much like in the larger Altima, this new CVT means fuel economyis vastly improved, with the majority of Sentra models rated at 30/39/34 miles per gallon (city/highway/combined). Adding the extra-efficient FE+ trim package will even net you a full 40 mpg on the highway with the CVT.

In addition to the S, S FE+, SV, SV FE+ and SL, Nissan will offer an SR trim (pictured above) that adds unique five-spoke 17-inch alloys, sport front and rear fascias, a sport front grille, lower body side sill extensions, fog lights, a rear spoiler and a chrome exhaust tip. Sadly, no suspension or powertrain upgrades are included with the "sporty" SR, but inside, silver trim is mixed in with unique cloth seats.

Sadly, no suspension or powertrain upgrades are included with the "sporty" SR.

The remaining Sentra models offer what Nissan says is a "class-above" premium feel inside, with improved overall interior dimensions versus the outgoing model. Both cloth and leather upholstery are available, as is the automaker's fancy new NissanConnect infotainment system that combines things like NavTraffic, NavWeather, as well as Bluetooth and Pandora streaming audio.

• New 1.8-liter engine and next-generation Xtronic CVT® with sub-planetary gear for optimal performance and efficiency
• Best-in-class combined fuel economy of 34 MPG*

• Available NissanConnectSM with Navigation with Hands-Free Text Messaging Assistant, POIs powered by Google™ and Google™ Send-to-Car functions
• On sale at Nissan dealers nationwide this fall

DALLAS (Aug. 31, 2012) – Nissan's all-new 2013 Sentra, unveiled here today, continues the brand's product onslaught as the third of five all-new vehicles being introduced in a 15-month period.

Like the recently unveiled Nissan Altima and Pathfinder, the redesign of Sentra focuses on class-above design standards inside and out, as well as efficiency in engineering. The new Sentra is 150 pounds – or five percent – lighter than the outgoing model, yet has slightly larger overall dimensions and more interior room. The lighter and more aerodynamic new Sentra allows Nissan to use a more fuel-efficient 1.8-liter engine, which along with the next generation Xtronic CVT® with sub-planetary gear helps deliver a 13 percent improvement in EPA combined fuel economy.

With the FE+ models, Sentra achieves up to 40 mpg on the highway. Other CVT-equipped models are rated at 39 mpg on the highway. All CVT models achieve a best-in-class* EPA rated 34 mpg combined (City and Highway).

"The 2013 Nissan Sentra is the most revolutionary design in the nameplate's 30-year history, a worthy addition to what is without question the most innovative, highest quality, highest value sedan lineup in Nissan history," said Al Castignetti, vice president and general manager, Nissan Division, Nissan North America, Inc. "With the complete redesign for 2013, Sentra is closer in look and feel to Altima than a typical compact sedan. Like Altima, the new Sentra offers best-in-segment attributes, such as high fuel economy and easy-to-use connectivity, that offer real customer value and convenience."

The new Sentra has a strong family resemblance to the recently introduced 2013 Nissan Altima, both in exterior and interior styling cues and its "class-above style" against competitive vehicles in the compact sedan segment.

Modern, Premium Design

Sentra's all-new design is elegant, modern and refined, reflecting a "professional" character targeted at upwardly bound buyers who aspire to drive something more premium than some of the other designs in the segment. It adopts Nissan's bold new signature trapezoid-shaped grille and large wraparound headlights with LED accents – the only sedan in the compact segment to offer them as standard equipment. In the rear, LED taillights are also standard, which complements the sophisticated styling.

Compared to the previous design, Sentra's beltline has been lowered and a new character line has been added that runs from the front fenders, along the sides, and finishes at the sculpted taillights and trunklid, giving the new Sentra a more aggressive stance and enhanced outward visibility for passengers. Other exterior features include chrome door handles and accents, available heated outside mirrors with integrated turn signals, and available sport front and rear fascias and rear spoiler.

The 2013 Sentra is built on a new platform that is lighter than the previous design, contributing to the new model's more than 150-pound weight reduction. It also helps Sentra provide one of the largest interior volumes in class, along with ample rear seat legroom and enhanced trunk capacity.

Compared with the previous generation Sentra, the 2013 model offers a 0.6-inch longer wheelbase (106.3 inches) and a 2.3-inch longer overall length (182.1 inches). The front overhang is shorter and the rear overhang extended. It is slightly lower in height (-0.6 inches) and narrower in width (-1.2 inches) for enhanced aerodynamics, yet offers nearly identical total interior volume (111.0 cubic feet versus the previous 110.8). The coefficient of drag has been significantly reduced to 0.29 from the previous 0.34.

"Sentra has long been known as one of the roomiest sedans in class and the latest iteration is no exception. The fine-tuning of its dimensions has created not only extremely well-balanced exterior proportions but enhanced rear seat legroom and created a larger, more usable trunk space," said Castignetti.

A Premium, Class-Above Interior

Sentra's sophisticated new look continues inside with a high-quality interior design with materials not usually found in compact vehicles, including soft-touch instrument panel and driver's door armrest, available leather-appointed seating and available Maple wood-tone trim. Along with offering mid-size roominess in a compact-size exterior, the intuitive interior layout emphasizes driver control and class-leading seat comfort for all occupants. The instrument panel curves out towards the doors and features Fine Vision electroluminescent gauges that are backlit even in daylight, providing a high-quality look that is also easy to read.

Rear seat legroom of 37.4 inches is among the largest in class and immediately apparent to occupants, even with the front seats in the rear-most position. The rear seat is a standard 60/40 split folding design, offering versatile access to the 15.1 cubic feet of trunk space (2.0 cubic feet larger than the 2012 Sentra trunk).

Standard interior features include 6-way manual driver's seat, 4-way manual front passenger's seat, front and rear door pockets, front center console with padded armrest and cupholders, rear seat armrest with cupholders, air conditioning with in-cabin microfilter, tilt and telescopic steering column, power windows with driver's one-touch auto up/down with auto reverse, power door locks with auto-locking feature, two auxiliary 12-volt power outlets, remote keyless entry and remote trunk and fuel-filler door releases.
A new Dual Zone Automatic Temperature Control (ATC) system is offered for the first time with Sentra, allowing the driver or front passengers to set their own individual temperature settings.

The standard audio system is an AM/FM/CD system with four speakers. Other available systems include a 6-speaker AM/FM/CD system with 4.3-inch color display, USB connection for iPod® and other compatible devices; and a Bose® Premium audio system with eight speakers and an amplifier that has been specially tuned to either the cloth or leather interior for best performance.

Also available is SiriusXM Satellite Radio (SiriusXM subscription required, sold separately) and Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System.

"Nowhere is the new Sentra's 'class-above' style more evident than in the interior. You notice it the minute you sit in the roomy, comfortable seats and when you touch the high quality materials. And when driving you notice the extra attention paid to isolating noise, vibration and harshness from entering the cabin," said Castignetti. "And that's before you even get into the various advanced technology features that you usually don't expect in a compact sedan segment vehicle."

NissanConnectSM with Navigation and Other Clever Technology

Like the new Altima, the 2013 Sentra offers a major step forward in technology that helps owners stay connected. An all-new version of the Nissan Navigation system is available. NissanConnectSM with Navigation includes a Hands-Free Text Messaging Assistant that reads incoming text messages and allows drivers to reply without taking their hands off of the steering wheel.

The system also offers Pandora® radio capability, Streaming Audio via Bluetooth® and a large 5.8-inch touch-screen display. The Navigation System includes NavTraffic and NavWeather functions (SiriusXM subscription required, sold separately), along with POIs powered by Google™ and Google™ Send-to-Car functions. The Navigation's map views now features warnings for curves and speed limit information.

Other available technology ranges from the RearView Monitor and Nissan Intelligent Key® with illuminated push-button ignition switch to the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) with Easy Fill Tire Alert feature. If air is being added or removed from a tire, the system signals the user when the recommended tire pressure has been reached by sounding the horn.

New 1.8-liter Engine and Advanced CVT

As expected from a ground-up redesign, the new Sentra features an all-new engine and CVT transmission. Now displacing 1.8-liters, Sentra's advanced DOHC 4-cyinder engine offers a longer stroke than typical engines in its class, resulting in improved combustion speed and efficiency. The engine is equipped with a twin Continuously Variable Timing Control (CVTC) system which modulates both the intake and exhaust valve opening time (similar to that used on the flagship Nissan Maxima).

The engine's internal friction has been reduced, improving efficiency. The DLC creates about half the friction of previous coatings. In addition, the valve springs are shaped similar to a beehive, with a smaller diameter towards the top – reducing inertia weight, improving valvetrain efficiency and smoothing engine operation. The engine is rated at 130 horsepower and 128 lb-ft of torque.

The new engine is matched with a new-generation Xtronic CVT® (a 6-speed manual is available in the base Sentra S model). The new CVT features a host of enhancements (versus the previous CVT) that contribute to an improvement in fuel efficiency and lower vehicle weight. It also offers a wider gear ratio of 7.3:1 through use of a sub-planetary gear and smaller pulleys, resulting in high-speed fuel efficiency at low rpm and responsive acceleration. Fuel economy is rated at 30 miles per gallon City, 39 miles per gallon Highway and a class-leading 34 miles per gallon combined with the CVT*.

"In the race for fuel economy bragging rights sometimes what gets lost in the mix is drivability. Sentra's new engine and advanced CVT design are perfectly matched to provide the best of both mpg and driving enjoyment – smooth, quiet and efficient operation around town or highway cruising, responsive acceleration and excellent mpg and driving range," said Castignetti.

The new Sentra also features an independent strut front suspension with stabilizer bar, torsion beam rear axle with integrated stabilizer bar, power-assisted vented front disc/rear drum braking system (4-wheel disc brakes are available), and vehicle-speed-sensitive electric power steering. Available wheels and tires include 16-inch steel wheels with full covers with 205/55R16 size all-season tires or 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels with 205/50R17 all-season tires.

In addition to the Sentra S model's long list of standard features, Sentra SV models add cruise control, two additional speakers, illuminated steering wheel audio controls, vehicle security system and premium cloth seating and door trim.

The Sentra SR adds a sportier appearance, starting with 17-inch forked 5-spoke aluminum-alloy wheels, sport front and rear fascias, sport front grille, lower body side sill extensions, rear spoiler with integrated LED brake light, fog lights and chrome exhaust tip finisher. Inside, the Sentra SR includes sport silver interior trim, premium sport cloth seats and driver's seatback pocket.

The top-of-the-line Sentra SL adds 17-inch split 7-spoke aluminum-alloy wheels, Smart Auto headlights, fog lights, heated outside mirrors with integrated LED turn signals, Nissan Intelligent Key®, Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System, 6-speaker audio system with 4.3-inch display, and Sirius XM Satellite Radio (SiriusXM subscription required, sold separately).

Additional Sentra SL equipment includes leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift lever knob, Maple wood-tone trim, Dual Zone Automatic Temperature Control (ATC), Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) with Easy Fill Tire Alert and more.

A Range of Well-Equipped Models

The 2013 Nissan Sentra is offered in a selection of well-equipped S, FE+ S, SV, FE+ SV, SR and SL trim levels. All models come with standard Xtronic CVT®, except the base Sentra S that is available with a choice of 6-speed manual or CVT.

The NissanConnectSM with Navigation system, leather-appointed seats, heated front seats, rear disc brakes, power sliding glass moonroof and RearView Monitor are among the additional features available with the various equipment packages.

"From front LED accents to rear LED taillights and every inch in between, the all-new 2013 Sentra serves notice to compact sedan buyers that the Sentra is stepping up in style and stepping up in desirability," said Castignetti. "In what has become one of the most competitive segments in the industry, Sentra is ready to take on all comers."

Transmission 2013 nissan sentra

Nissan Sentra

The Sentra looks good on paper but then doesn't quite live up to expectations. Redesigned for 2013, the Nissan is noisy and underwhelming to drive. Sentra's best quality is that it has one of the roomiest rear seats in the class. Another plus was the availability of some attractive options for not a lot of money, which should make it quite attractive on the used car market.

Why is Your 2013 Sentra’s Transmission So Important?

2013 Nissan Sentra Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Nissan? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.

  • How much can I tow in a Nissan Sentra? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Sentra’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.

  • When should I have my Sentra's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2013 Sentra’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Nissan, so check with your technician first. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.

2013 Nissan Sentra cvt transmission not being cover

unfortunately im not sure what models contain that transmission however cvt transmissions are garbage they used them in the past and stopped because they fail so frequently the only reason i can think of that they started using them again was because of fuel efficiency, you can get unlimited gear ratios due to the design but its also extremely weak and very prone to failure. One of my newer customers has had two cvt transmissions put in his 2012 Nissan Maxima and its less than 100,000.

Nissan's were great cars and trucks 20 years ago. You may need to go Junk Yard hunting and I am sure you will find one somewhere; however, in the old days, you could buy a decent transmission for pennies on the dollar. Look on eBay; there are after market suppliers there. Call some local junk yards, and if there is a local mechanic that specializes in Nissan's, then he is your MAN! As an example, Rickie Diehl in Huntsville Alabama of Diehl Nissan is hated by the local Nissan Dealership. Might be worth the phone call to see what Rickie has to say!

There is a big class action lawsuit against Nissan because of the transmission but I think by the time they get around to me the car be gone but I want to see this problem get fixed for other people because it's unfair that we spend so much money on a car and it only Last 5 Years for god sakes I got a 63 Impala that runs better than this 2013 Nissan Sentra it still has the original transmission with 100k I even have a truck a 1990 Chevy and that's has 190k and no issue with transmission I can't even remember the last time I change the fluid. They lost my business for ever. I would never buy a Nissan ever again maybe if they warranty it and be nice about it I'll consider buy another one from them but they act like it's not their fault and wipe your hands clean with it.

I was looking on this website call copart they sell total out car. I found one a 2013 with 30k miles hit on the side and the bid is $280.00. If I win it I'll take out the transmission and sell the car for parts and make some money. The motor can sell for $500 or more. It have full interior,front clip,rear of the car in great shape. I have to get my friends with a dealer license to get it for me or can I get a newer car Nissan Sentra. Do anybody knows what year Nissan transmission are the same. Like a 2013 is it the same on 2014 ,2015,2016 or 2018

Hello I have done research on the same issue the problem is the coolant once the car is driven for a long period the transmission gets over heated that it doesn’t accelerate any more and it burns out the transmission oil. I’m getting an external coolant for the transmission install on my 2007 this will fix that issue.

We had the same issue this summer with my sons 2013 Sentra that I co signed for. It had a complete transmission fail at 65,000 and Nissan refused to cover it. We had no choice but to have it repossessed because of the hardship it caused. Now, 4 months later they sent a letter stating the car is covered by the extended warranty! I'm calling them about this and if they aren't willing to pay the $7501 we owe on the car and fix both our credit reports than I am obtaining an attorney and suing them for what's owed, what my son paid in payments, towing expenses and emotional damages for the stress and anxiety it caused us both! Neither my son nor I will ever own a Nissan again!

I have a 2013 Nissan Sentra that has 80,000 miles on it. My cvt transmission has also gone bad. I was quoted a replacement cost of $4700. I intend to file a report with Nissan's Customer Service department because surely they are well aware of this issue by now! I plan to demand a new transmission or an equivalent car. If I do not get justice, I too will be filing a lawsuit against the company. I am still paying a monthly note on this vehicle and should not have to relinquish my car to repossession due to this costly repair. I drive everyday and this has been an extremely stressful inconvenience!

Well these comments are very disturbing and I really expected better from Nissan. My son owns a 2013 Sentra and last night was very scary. While driving his car just quit accelerating, starting jerking, and gears slipped. We found out today I was the transmission. The dealership said it was out of warranty and would cost about $4500...This is a known problem with these cars and no matter how old the car if it's the same problem, they should fix it for free. I know they try to sell extended warranties, but who thinks they would need one on a five year old car with 45,000 miles on it. Is there anything that can be done?

@Shae No unfortunately once they break thats it you either need to replace it or have it rebuilt but because of the design it will fail again.

My 2013 Nissan Sentra just reached 65k miles and I noticed a change in the sound of the car as I accelerate recently. About a week ago, it started struggling to accelerate. Took it to the dealership and they say I need a new transmission. 5k that I don't have, thank you very much. I bougth this car 3 years ago at 21k or so. I've never in my life had to replace a transmission with such low mileage. Filed a claim with Nissan to see if they'll help if not cover it completely considering this is apparently a common issue and it's only 5k outside of the warranty... Not holding my breath on this one. Took it in on Thursday.. they said they would have an answer by Monday. Ok sooo am I gonna get stranded on the side of the road?? What happens if I'm driving on the highway (most of my commute is on the hwy 60+mph) and it just stops working?! Glad to know the safety of your customers is not your concern. I won't be buying a Nissan again.

Our 2013 Nissan Sentra transmission need replacement and recently got out of warranty. We purchased it in 2013 brand new from a Nissan Dealer in Mckinney TX. Last week, the car started making noises when shifts speeds. We took the car right away to a Nissan dealer for a diagnose. My husband was told that the car needs a new transmission, cost $4000 plus labour. My husband asked to be given the codes for the errors the computer was showing. The dealer rep. refused to give them to my husband. I took a day off from work today (04/23/19) for calling the dealer to ask again for the codes because we paid $140 to find out exactly what was wrong with the car. They finally gave me these codes: BSM- C1704 , C1707, C1708, Airbag- B00A000,B142A16. Then I called Nissan @ 1.800 .Nissan1. I spoke to Obi, agent #7319589 and he gave me a case number. He told me that I will receive a call back from one of their rep by the end of the next business day. I would like to know if I have a lemon case and what my rights are. Thank you, M

I also have a 2013 Nissan Sentra with 41k miles. 2 years ago I faced the same issue, my transmission had to be replaced. Luckily I was still under warranty and did not have to pay out of pocket. TODAY, I was stuck at a red light with the SAME issue. I will be calling the service department tomorrow, and it better be covered! I only have 41k miles on the car, and the transmission was supposedly replaced 2 years ago. This does not make sense!

I have a 2013 Nissan Sentra. Cvt transmission failed at 60k miles. Had a warranty that covered it. Also had a $2700 defective sensor the warranty covered. The sensor wouldnt let me put car out of park, I couldn't even use my vehicle. Then they showed me a way to rig it with a pen they gave me until I could get back. Sketchy. I told them 4k miles before warranty was up that my transmission was acting up again. They ran test said it was nothing and that is the way the car drives. It is sensitive to wind. I complained the rpms were going crazy and also moving while using cruise control. It didnt look right and car was acting like transmission problems. They sent me home. 8 months later at 116k miles my transmission has failed a second time!!! I owe money on it still. I called Corporate, glad I seen all these complaints.

We leased a 2014 Nissan versa from Nissan dealership in Visalia ,the second day I had the car the transmission went out,they replaced it wit a new ,then two months later they had to replace the radiator as well,here last night the transmission went out AGAIN ,and it's on its way to a shop now,but Nissan won't give me a loaner til it's repaired? I'm sick and have lots of medical issues that require medical appointments that I can't get to now because of Nissan's bs

Our Nissan Sentra 2013 also have the same issue with less than 100,000 miles. We took it to Tranny mechanic, they said its not the tranny. We took it to another mechanic they could not find what's wrong it with. NO engine check light on the dash board. They said to bring it to the dealership which I'm for sure they will say its a tranny problem. I guess we're all stuck with this problem.. I would like to know how we can have nissan fixed this issue without a cause from our end

My husband and I also have a 2013 Nissan Sentra 70,500+ miles on it, we noticed that our car wasnt “shifting gears” as it should. At first we thought it was the air intake, maybe even need for an oil change, did all that and it still was driving funny. I thought maybe it was from having ECO on so we stopped using it, got a little better, then suddenly when trying to excellerate from a stop our RPMs would shoot up to 5-6 and then drop to 4 and get stuck till we come to a stop again then the car will jerk and be fine as long as we slowly accellerated, oh and forget about getting on the highway, if you do over 50 the car slightly jerks, you can feel the transmission slipping in and out of gear so to speak. But we took it in as soon as this happened, Jakie Cooper Nissan in Broken Arrow Oklahoma had the car for almost 2days and finally at the end of the 2nd day(5:30pm they close at 6) called and said its our transmission and it will he $4,500 to replace and a week-2 weeks without a car. Or they can try to rebuild it for $3,500 but if they open it and the chain or belt inside is in worse shape then they expect we would have no choice but to replace with 100%brand new. Since its our only car after selling them our Elentra 2months ago, thats not an option plus $4,500 is an impossible price. Of course our warranty ended in January! We asked about Nissan options and they said they had nothing to help with it. Obviously this is a HUGE issue! No way all of us have the same year make and model car with the same issues and all have “lemons”! Nissan really needs to do something! Anyone have a link or anything to the classaction lawsuite previously mentioned here?! Also do any of yall think it would do any good to file a complaint with Nissan Corp on this issue!?

Hi my 2013 Sentra with 57,000 miles stalled on me without any prior indication that it had any mechanical issues. No check engine light, nothing! Dealer stated my transmission is blown. I called corporate and they escalated my complaint and was promised by the agent that they will contact the dealer on Monday. After reading so many horrific stories about Faulty CVT transmission and Nissan not owning up, I have a feeling my car is done! No way in hell am I paying $4,000 for a new transmission to go bad in another couple of years.

The poorest of transmissions, agreed! The 1st lasted till 110,km, the Nissan dealership couldn't locate in Canada, nor in Japan, with an unknown estimate of a replacement tranny delivery time. Bought a used at Aamco, the second tranny lasted 2 weeks, Aamco replaced this tranny under their warranty. Next the retaining clip hold the axle shaft in the tranny failed, (perhaps because of Aamco reused and fatigued the retaining clip on both tranny replacements, (chances are!) Too much money spent to unload this lemon. Correct never buying a CVT again. BTW ....took a UBER shared ride, the another passenger had a failed CVT as well and could afford to fix it! BAD TRANNYS ...STAY AWAY

There was a recall in 2019? I got a quote to repair the transmission from a mechanic shop at $2600. Then I took my car to Nissan and after some arguing they agreed to replace my transmission for $900. With everyone on here we should file one.

Same issues. I dropped off my Nissan Sentra 2013 for a $150 diagnostic in San Diego due to RPMs going crazy, especially on the highway they would shoot all the way up to 5- 6. I had to let go of the gas pedal in order for it to readjust. Nissan called and said I was 800 miles out of my extended warranty and needed to replace the transmission at a cost of $4,500. I said that was ridiculous for it to fail at just 100k. I had owned Sentra previously and had gone way past 150k miles with no issues. They are trying to work with me and are doing a transmission diagnostic ($150 additional) to see if they can force the 'check engine' light on so they can retrieve the codes. This morning they just called and asked me to pick up my Sentra and drive it on my own for up to 200 miles to see if the check engine light comes on and then go back. It makes no sense. They want to give me my car back when it is having issues instead of giving me a fixed car. They did waive the transmission diagnostic and I am only paying the $150 for the original diagnostic which was supposed to go towards the total cost of repairs. This is so sketchy. What happens if my car fails while I have it back in my possession? Even the tech who test drove it said it was shifting violently. A class action lawsuit does need to occur so they can recall these faulty transmissions!

Got this in the mail today! Looks like there might be some hope to help us with these crappy CVT transmissions!

I had the same issue and was forced to have Nissan replace the CVT transmission. They did offer to cover 80% of it but I was still required to pay over $900. My vehicle only had 66,000 miles there is no reason for the transmission to have gone bad so soon I received in the mail today that a class-action lawsuit was filed against Nissan for anyone else who had to pay out of pocket for the repair. Go to SentraVersaCVTSettlement.com to file your claim.

Our transmission just went tonight. 2013 but we bought it's at 106,000 miles. If the other warranty extension applied, we'd be covered, but we're not. WHAT THE HECK?? We don't buy Fords specifically for their transmission issue. This is unreal. Has anyone successfully gotten a replacement? The current class action still wouldn't help us. Something isn't right if Nissan can get away with this many issues to these transmissions.

To All: I had my Nissan repaired last two weeks ago and after a week I received a post card from Nissan Settlement Administration. They are extending warranty for the CVT or you can file a claim if you have paid for repairs on any Nissan Sentra or Versa Year 2013 to 2017. I sent in all documentation last week and once I received reimbursement I will post information here. If you need claim form or copy of the notice for Settlement Action let me know.

GuruHGGYJ - can I ask what your mileage was? Is this the first repair you had done?

In reference to my post above, I called Nissan Corporate directly and opened up a claim. They ended up replacing my transmission free of charge. If any of you are having issues, I recommend you call and open a claim. Now I am going to see if there is any way I can get my diagnostic expense refunded. Transmission has been replaced and car is running as it should! Good luck to you all!

Jessie, Car mileage was 90k. They say as long as you file the claim before Jan 30, 2020. Warranty extension by 24 months or 24k miles which ever comes first.

I have a 2013 Nissan Sentra and have had the tranmission replaced 3 times in less than 2 years. The transmission just went out AGAIN3 weeks ago and every mechanic I've called are hesitant to work on it when I tell them the make and model. The previous time I have gotten it fixed, the transmission goes out right after a year. I will never by another Nissan vehicle.

I also have 2013 Sentra. Same transmission issue. Vehicle has all the above me toned issues before it transmission broke down altogether in the middle of highway. It was a big safety issue and thanks to police patrol who came in a minute to support us from back side from eventual possible collision. Any ways I term Nissan Sentra as a piece of junk. Its standing in my house since month .the amount of replacement cost is now equal to the vehicle price after repair. Request to get together and have lawsuit file against Nissan in Canada so that this is recalled if not then I will not spend a single dime ofer this garbage vehicle.

I also have the 2013 Nissan Sentra, with just over 105K miles. It has all of the issues listed by everyone else and was dangerous to drive. I took it to the dealership who made me aware of the CVT re-programming "campaign", but that didn't fix it. They told me nothing of the class action/extension of warranty, etc. They wanted 4k to replace the transmission so I went to another transmission repair center and paid 3k. It was then that I learned the history of problems with this vehicle. I called and filed a claim only to be told that it didn't apply to my vehicle because it was outside of any extended warranty period that had been granted to other Sentra owners. Seriously? What a piece of junk....especially knowing that the transmission placed in it will eventually have the same issue. Crappy product, crappy customer service and no more Nissans in my driveway!

Same here, having issues with nissan sentra 2013. Mechanic said it was the transmission. I bought this car in April of 2013 . I was at a red light turning left when light turned green, car pull like it loss power to accelerate. A day after that, I tried turning on my car and it Powers off when attempting to drive the car. This is BS. I'm supper upset especially when it's your only car you rely on and struggling financially.
