What Is Nissan’s Continuous Variable Transmission Used in Their Vehicles, and Why Is It Prone to Defects?

Nissan uses a continuous variable transmission, or CVT, in their vehicles. This technology in the transmission utilizes a belt and two pulleys to make different gear ratios, that drive the Nissan cars and trucks. We can put on our master mechanic’s hat for a minute, to see how this system works.

The CVT system uses two pulleys side by side and a steel belt around two cones, that go around to turn the pulleys. The pulleys have an input and output speed, that is regulated when the car is in use. The cones pull apart to allow the vehicle to go into overdrive. There is a clutch pack that allows the car to move easily into reverse gear as well.

The gear ratio will adjust the distance between the cones, allowing the vehicle to have a seamless speed change. This means, that when you are riding in the Nissan with a CVT system, the changes of gears for the vehicle should be completely unnoticeable. With no notice of gear changes, you will be in for a nice smooth ride in that type of vehicle using the CVT system.

Why Are CVT Gear Systems Prone to Defects?

The belts are weak, and often limit the gears when they are defective. The other components of the CVT may be defective as well, straight from the factory, such as with the torque converter, valve body, final drive and differential parts of the vehicle.
