Hi All,

It seems that I just ran into the problem that some of the members here encountered, and would like to know a bit further from those who encountered that.

My JUKE is a 1.6 NA with the Xtronic CVT transmission. It was bought in May 2012 and travelled for about 20,000 miles (about 33,000km) by now. Since last week, whenever I start the car at low speed, like from traffic lights or my parking lot, when the engine is around 1,500rpm, less than 15km/h, I felt a few jerking movement (not too harsh), like the gear clutches did not engage smoothly. Similar thing happens after I lift my accelerator, when the car is travelling at low speed and "gliding" to stop. Besides, during the above moments, some grinding noises come from the underside of the car. Apart from that, the car still performs normally without really odd things like heavy jerking, low banging, etc. And if I start the car a little bit faster, or stepping the brake to slow it down instead of "gliding" to stop, those jerking and grinding noises do not come out quite often.

I took the car to Nissan service centre today and after checking, they told me it's likely the CVT having problem, and they will proceed to the procedures in arranging replacement of the transmission by claiming the warranty. But the whole process can take place a month or two.

Can someone who encountered similar situation and had to keep driving the car for one or two months before replacement, tell me how the situation of the transmission and the car would go? Or the worst scenario?

I am from Hong Kong, but the JUKE available here are made in UK with specifications similar to the Tekna model in UK, so your advice maybe useful to me.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Kind regards,
Leonard

My new Juke Ascenta Premium auto lost complete power going up a hill after a long journey back from Norfolk to Hastings on Friday. Came to a halt in traffic!! It had suddenly begun revving and hunting between gears. RAC called. It is due to be examined tomorrow, but very disappointing after only 3K on the clock. I bought it from new
RAC engineer said that the gear box was very hot. Coolant level overall was good.
Very disappointing having paid 13K.

My Juke Acenta is just outside warranty and the CVT box has become noisy. I am told that this Is a common problem with early Juke CVT boxes, plenty of hits on the Internet. I am back at the dealers on Tuesday who supplied it and serviced it to see if I can get a preferential trade-in. They have already mentioned its thousands to fix. Does any body have expirence of a non Nissan replacement ?

More on the above. I have contacted Nissan Cs direct and they have told me to go to the new Nissan dealership and present my Juke to them. The garage that sold and serviced the car for the first three years is no longer a Nissan garage, but has confirmed I need a replacement box at a cost of £6800, two months out of warranty. They are now a Vauxhall dealer but could supply and fit a recon at £3850. What are the chance of getting a new box out of Nissan for less that the price of a recon unit? The lowest price I have found a recon for is £. 2850 plus vat. I think that this will be a long draw out process waiting for Nissan and the car has already been off the road for a week. The trade in value of my juke is £8000 if it was sound.

This does seem to be very common with Nissan Cvt, the Qashqai has had similar problems.
It seems if you have had Nissan servicing during the first three years and your cvt fails shortly after you may get a goodwill gesture towards the costs.

CVT gearboxes are awful in any car. I Don't know of any manufacture that does not have similar problems. Only buy an auto now if it is a normal auto I.E one that you can feel change gear like the older vehicles. CVT boxes only whilst the car is in warranty.
Same is going for new Diesels as well they are becoming so sophisticated once out of warranty there like a hand grenade waiting to go off.

Hi everyone,

Whilst travelling down to Canterbury on the M2 last week the CVT transmission on our Duke failed at speed. We decelerated from 70mph to 40mph in as many yards and nearly lost control of the vehicle. After limping it into a service station in low gear, the RAC returned it back to the main Nissan agent from were the vehicle had been purchased 18 months earlier. RAC diagnosis : Transmission selection problem
The Duke had only cover 25400 miles when we brought it with a years warranty from Ancaster. In the 18months of ownership we have only covered another 5000 miles and the CVT transmission failed at 30K !
We have been quoted £6000 for a new unit supply and fit. After following the complaints procedure with Nissan UK, we were informed that because we had the Duke serviced at an independent garage, and not at the Main Nissan Agent. We had not shown loyalty to the Brand and any Goodwill Gesture towards us, were going to be significantly reduced ! Remember the vehicle had only cover 5000miles since a supposed Main Agent full service !
Nissan UK are fully aware of the CVT issue and did not try to hide the fact when I spoke to Nissan Head Office on the phone. Their best offer.... 50% reduction on the transmission only...with a 1 year parts and labour guarantee !

After a little investigation. It appears Nissan U.S have offered an extended warranty to all of the CVT vehicles in the United States. To bolster the confidence of the U.S market the warranty has been increased from 3 years / 60K to 10 years or 120K. Nissan know that they have a problem with their early CVT cars but will not recalled their vehicle. Instead , they have left it to the British public to pay for their faults. Any confidence, both in the vehicle and the Brand are at an all time low and will probably be traded in once it is returned by the garage.

Dear Nissan Juke & Qashqai drivers

Please take a minute to read this letter

Nissan Juke & Qashqai CVT Automatic Transmissions are suffering with ‘stalling of the engine’ and a noise due to a collapse of an internal bearing in the transmission which causes the blocking of an oil feed hole and damage to some internal components.

To date parts to rectify this problem are not available from Nissan, for the customers the only option was a replacement transmission- this is very costly and eighteen months ago a customer of our company VMTP midlands scrapped his when we told him the price of a new transmission from Nissan. Unfortunately we could not offer a repair at the time.

For the Nissan Drivers who are outside Nissans warranty period, VMTP Midlands Ltd who for the past 30 years have specialized in automatic transmission re-manufacturing, can now offer a repair to correct this problem. We can do this by replacing the failed components within the customers own transmission with new parts that we have sourced; providing it is serviceable.
We can also offer a collection & delivery service of the vehicle from your facilities or home.

This type of failure can happen at very low mileage as we have seen from experience and from your threads, and understandably it is extremely frustrating especially considering how much a new transmission is. Hopefully we can make it slightly better by offering a cheaper alternative.

The repair we offer to this particular problem comes with a guarantee.

For any further details or enquiries please contact us on 01543 27055 and ask for Nigel Bishop, email us at [email protected] or check out and get in touch via our website http://vmtp-midlands.co.uk/.

These transmission which are called CVT7 or JF015 and marked with a code by Nissan REOF11.
They are used in several vehicles and they are fitted with sub standard bearings which will fail after 20-30000 km.
I have repaired lots of these and have been able to get the parts for it and proper NTN and NSK Bearings.
We also can supply all other internal parts like frictions, filters, Pushbelt etc.
If you wanted more info go to www.cvtparts.co.nz or copie this link in your browser and you can find all the parts.http://cvt-parts.co.nz/nissan-cvt/reof-11-cvt-transmission-jf015/

Hello Leonard_C

I have some problem with my nissan.
I went to Nissan, I did a test and they said there would be nothing wrong. I changed the oil to the CVT and it does the same.
How did you solve the problem?

I'm waiting for an answer.

Thanks!

I have an automatic Nissan Juke 1.6 Acenta premium. It is 3 years old, done 12,000 miles and I have had two new gearboxes, one satnav and it still rattles. Rubbish car. Don't buy. Customer Services at Nissan have offered a free service "for any inconvenience I have had". This car is what is known as a Friday afternoon car obviously, but Nissan do not care about their customers so I would buy another make.

My Primera, Qashqai and two Micras never had any CVT trouble. This Juke had a new CVT at 40K miles. Symptoms were like a badly slipping clutch, but it would 'reset' when the engine was turned off, and would then drive normally until something 'tripped'. I suspect an electrical fault in whatever it uses as a clutch. I'm still a huge CVT fan.

The best advice you will find today. Excellent service, have gone above and beyond in my opinion. My other halfs Nissan Juke has had this problem, I called and despite a lead time of a week Steve arranged transport to the west midlands for the next day. With it being on site, they were able to repair well before the expected time. An honest business which will help save people thousands. Trust me, give them a call!
