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

Janice Bryson
I received excellent service from Stafford, he was very professional and went above and beyond what I was expecting. He was up front on cost of repairs on my transmission unlike the shady dealership who quoted me an outrageous amount. Save yourself the hassle and go see them, I wouldn't hesitate to take my vehicle there again if needed. I also will recommend them to all my family and friends. Thanks again Stafford 👍

Francisco Machado
I chose Mister Transmission after calling several places to get a quote to replace the clutch on my 06 Accord with 400,000 km. Everything was perfect except the price. I was expecting a lower cost than what I paid since Ready Honda quoted me almost the same being a Honda dealer.But nevertheless, I am happy with the work they performed, the clutch feels like I am driving a brand new car. The person who assisted me, Staford, was very professional, and I got my car back when they promised me. Thank you.
