My dad was a supporter of Nissan ever since he bought the AD Resort (Wagon), had it for more than 10 years i think, then he traded that in for a 2009 Latio which is still in use today, no major issues and back in 2014 he took in his 3rd Nissan which is the X-Trail SUV 2.0 for the growing family. Despite hearing to a lot of rumors about the gearbox issue, our unit didn't seem to face that so I guess you could say we are satisfied with the overall package Nissan has treated me and my family over the years. He even made good friends with the dealer and technical staff over the years, even to the point where they would offer pick up and drop service when the time had came for us to service our cars.

Now I am waiting for ETCM to bring in the latest Almera to have a look before I start my own family as well. laugh.gif

I went to gear box specialist to repair, I think they replaced the bearing and etc. Total repair cost 4.5k. Could be I am few of the unlucky one. I did wrote to Nissan to complaint this matter and my mileage was just 32k even after 3.5 years. But they don't entertain, just say after 3 years warranty period. They can't do anything. Sigh.....

You know whats the problem with Malaysia?
They aren't like the States. Or Singapore , with Lemon Law.

http://www.nissancvtfail.com/?p=lawsuits

Consumer protection here is weak. I dont know how this case will be handled should you report it to KPDNKK.
If it were in the States, as I read, many has file lawsuit with Nissan of USA.
So much so that they extended the warranty . But not here.

So they (Tan Chong) aren't afraid of you complaining till the moon and beyond. All they do is just shut up and ignore.
(I experience this personally with Proton myself, but thats a different story, non-CVT related, just some mechanic negligence which caused me to encounter breakdown)

Kinda like you have to swallow down the shit.

Gone are the days of Datsun 120Y, Nissan Sunny, Nissan Vanette, to name a few 80s and 90s cars. All legendary heroes.
Ever since Nissan joint alliance with Renault and then later with Mitsu , and together with the Carlos Ghosn scandal, all gone down the drain.

I have the same gear box problem after 3 years warranty. Around 3 years 10 months. Nissan quote me 19k.

After 4 years, fuel pump crack, another 1.5k.

No more Nissan for my family. But I still stuck with Slyphy, resale value very low. Not worth to sell

same here, buy at 120k sell at 30k in 5yrs? sweat.gif

I just sold off my 2001 Nissan Sentra N16 1.5L this week (This is one of the rarer Sentras out there, most of them still rolling around are 1.6), and I've been driving it since 2012, so I think I can have a say in here. Clocked in about 456,000 km on this legend car.

The car has been in my family since 2005, my dad drove it to work cross-state, so this car clocked in about 100km everyday back when it was his. He maintained it very well and it was around 200k ++ km when he passed it to me. I continued to maintain it to the best of my ability. Timely oil changes and never abused it with revving hard etc.

1. Definitely not for spirited drivers. Think of it as a gentle and steady ride. It's very enjoyable for long distance driving, not so much on jammed city roads.

2. Maintenance cost was relatively low UNTIL these past 2 years. Which is why I decided to sell it off. Despite overhaul done in 2017, several other problems just started cropping up almost every month. But I see this not as a Nissan problem, just that the car is getting old. Wheel bearing need replacement la, radiator leak la, roof starting to get rust cancer...all the usual stuff.

3. At 18 years old and this kind of mileage, many people who come for a ride with me are surprised that my car is still very quiet and steady. (When it doesn't have one of those random breakdown days)

Sold off for RM7.8k, I shall miss that old boii. =)

Nissan is good before CVT X Tronic. Your sentra should be either a manual or a normal auto transmission

LOL. Good point...Perhaps that is why they are pissed of with Renault holding so much voting power whole Nissan has little stake and say in the Alliance.

Bit seriously I wonder if there is any care one can take with Nissan Jatco Xtronic CVT to prolong it's usability.

We have to remember one thing, when Renault took over the management of Nissan, Nissan was a near bankrupt company and failing on many fronts.

In fact I remember quite well their cars of that era, they sold the Micra, Almera and Primera all built in Swindon where I spent 1 summer fixing tail lamps. They were plain and boring cars when compared against the competition from Ford and Vauxhall. They were reliable yes but beyond that nothing special about those cars and the Almera I rented I remembered it fondly for consuming a lot of fuel and cheap grey plastics anywhere and everywhere.

CVTs in 2.0l and above engines will always have its issues. Torque is what kills it and in most japanese cars all the torque tend to be at high range so it is no surprise it wears off prematurely.
