CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) Service & Repair Ajax, Ontario

 

A traditional automatic transmission uses a complex series of gears to transfer the engine’s power to the wheels. A CVT is a type of automatic transmission, but it has no gears at all. Instead, it uses a pulley and belt system to provide an unlimited range of gear ratios. Popular auto makers, such as Nissan, Toyota, Subaru, Chrysler and Honda, are introducing CVT’s to their model lineups to offer customers an option with improved acceleration and enhanced fuel economy.

CVT Common Problems

CVT’s are still relatively new to the market and can be very difficult and complicated to diagnose and repair. While CVT’s have fewer moving parts and are simpler in design, it is new technology and our technicians have completed extensive training specific to CVT’s and are well qualified to work with your vehicle.

Come common problems to look out for with your CVT include:

  • Transmission ‘jerking’, slipping, grinding or jumping during acceleration when the car is shifting gears
  • Noisy while driving – some customers have issues with a ‘whining’, ‘clanging’ or ‘rattling’ sound while driving especially with Nissan CVT’s
  • Contaminated or low transmission fluid
  • Overheating
  • Check Engine Light On
  • Gears changing at high RPM

My vehicle is showing at least one of these signs, what should I do?

If you suspect your CVT transmission is not performing as it should be, bring it in to your local Mister Transmission. We always start with our FREE Road Test and Multi Check Inspection to identify any problems with your transmission and provide you with different repair options. The key to minimizing repair costs is to get them checked as soon as you notice them, and you most likely only need a minor repair or service.

Great service. Flexible with time...
Fassel Hussain
Great service. Flexible with time and very generous with checking. My local mechanic had diagnosed a transmission/ CVT issue. I was able to call and speak to Rabih the same day and brought the car over. Mike spent some 10 to 15 minutes driving the car around to hear the reported noise. Nothing was found. He checked and cleared some other error codes in the car. No transmission error code was found. They did not charge anything. I took the car back, and the car started the noise and vibration again. I brought the car back, they put it on the hoist and checked all four wheels , spent some good 10 to 15 minutes looking at it and found the problem with exhaust hangers. Rabih also drove the car around for some 10 minutes. No transmission or axel issue was found. They refused to take money. I was shocked. I would have been happy to pay for the two checkups on two days. They say the check-up is free. Both Mike and Rabih were amazing!!! If I ever have a transmission issue or car key issue, I am going to this place.

I recently had the pleasure of bringing my vehicle to Mr. Transmission at Unit 5, 200 Fuller Road, Ajax, Ontario, and I must say, the experience exceeded all my expectations. The Rabih Ghazale team at this location is a true gem in the world of auto repair. First and foremost, the service was incredibly fast and efficient. I was facing some rather concerning transmission problems, and they quickly diagnosed the issue, which was causing trouble with my front differential and axles. Not only did they promptly identify the problem, but they also took the time to thoroughly explain the issue to me, which made me feel at ease and confident in their expertise. One of the best things about Mr. Transmission was the transparency in their pricing. There were no surprises when it came to the repair cost. They provided a detailed breakdown of the expenses, and I was pleasantly surprised to see that they didn't overcharge for parts and labor. In fact, the final bill was exactly what we had initially discussed, which is a rare find in the world of auto repair. The team at Mr. Transmission in Ajax, Ontario, truly understands the importance of cost-effectiveness. They went above and beyond to provide a perfect solution for my vehicle's transmission issues without breaking the bank. I greatly appreciate their dedication to ensuring that the repair process was both effective and affordable. If you're experiencing transmission problems or facing issues with your front differential and axles, I wholeheartedly recommend Mr. Transmission at this location. They are an excellent service center that provides exceptional service, explains the problem thoroughly, and offers a cost-effective solution. I couldn't be more satisfied with my experience, and I'm confident you will be too. Mr. Transmission has earned my trust, and I will definitely be returning for any future automotive needs. Thank you, Rabih Ghazale team, for your outstanding service!

Went here for zf8hp45 transmission service on my bmw 535i. Owner and tech are super knowledgeable and very friendly. I was able to watch the service as it was being done. Excellent service! Also resolved issues I had with slight shuddering / slipping at WOT. I thought it was some boost pressure related but after the trans service the car feels great. Shifts like butter and super smooth. Highly recommend!!!
