CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) Service & Repair Barrie, 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.

Just want to tell you...

Just want to tell you that I had a great experience with AL at this location. Professional, polite and efficient. Most importantly, I asked about putting in a transmission cooler and he told me I already had one. He could have taken me. What more do you want? Honesty and kindness rule here.Service: Transmission

Marcel Heaton
I needed my 1974 MGB clutch repaired. Mr Transmission did a great job and in a timely manner. I thought the price was a bit high but they were the only local company that would work on my car. The staff were knowledgeable and friendly. I would recommend them to my friends and family.

Hats off to Mister Transmission....
Aiden Langford
Hats off to Mister Transmission. Please go here for transmission work or any vehicle service! My 2010 Mazda 3 transmission started slipping at 170K and wouldn't reverse. The team at Mister Transmission were extremely professional and I can't thank Al enough for his kindness and coherent way of explaining what needed to be fixed and why. He made it easy to understand exactly what was wrong with the trans and the logistics behind the repairs. Most shops I've been to for any work on my vehicle have fed me jargon I couldn't follow and I was never entirely sure if they were just trying to get more money from me. Mister Transmission did not do that and my transmission shifts beautifully again (just like new). Once again, THANK YOU! I am beyond satisfied with their work. Don't hesitate to visit them or give them a call.

The staff at Mister Transmission Barrie exceeded my expectations. They were able to chase the electrical issues my car had when the dealer couldn't. Their pricing was fair and my car rides like a new vehicle. I would not hesitate to recommend this shop to you. A. Roussy

Just Had my 2015 Toyota...
Tim Samuels
Just Had my 2015 Toyota Camry XLE 2.5 transmission rebuilt at the Barrie ,Essa Road location.The manager Al was amazing from the time I walked in there feeling hopeless after Jackson s Toyota advised me I would need a new ($8000 ) or used ($4000) transmission as their only suggestion.( paid $153 for that diagnostic). This Camry has just 180,300 km and the Torque Converter was failing ( shudder during gear changes) .Apparently a known issue in the States and I was really hoping Toyota would cover but alas they did not.Al took care of me ( free diagnostic) and even arranged a rental for me at an amazing price ( Bristol) .Thank you Al and your team for a job well done . The car feels great again .You did a great job at a great price and with a personal touch .I highly recommend Al and team to handle any issue you have with your transmission. It s a costly repair no matter what ,because it s a big job and specialized skills needed ,but going to the right people makes it easier and less stressfulFive Stars all the way Thanks again Al

I can not say enough...
Ryan French
I can not say enough good things about the outstanding service and level of trust I have in these guys I took my car in for a new transmission and I received friendly service after the repairs I was shown my old transmission and they explain what went wrong and how the fixed it which was awesome. About a week later I had an issue with my starter I dropped it off expecting to pay $600 they called me letting me know it was an easy fix for them snd not to worry about it which was a life saver. From that point on I’ve used them and trusted their opinions these guys are the best you will not regret giving them your business and like me you will continue to use them I guarantee it
