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

I was traveling through Kingston with my 2015 Suburban when my transmission broke down. I feel very lucky I ended up with Matt and Mister Transmission. I was well looked after and the bill I thought was very fair. Definitely a honest, reliable and reputable business. I would highly recommend Mister Transmission Kingston.

Very professional, competent, thorough, and courteous. I had them check a couple things for me and each instance I was impressed with how they were focussed on helping me and not how to gouge me. I had work done here a few years ago and it was a similar experience. Highly recommended

Thank you Matt, the new owner of this shop in Kingston Ontario for taking care of my Equinox. Had a complete transmission rebuild just under 3 years ago at 4 thousand dollars. Now, less than 30 KMS driven , problems returned😡. And now the transmission is slipping once again. Its the module in the transmission I was told. Not happy about another 1700 dollars spent. BUT Matt explained it to me and what needs to be replaced. I'm very happy with the SUV running excellent again. Wonderful customer service and very professional, as opposed to the previous owner!! Thank you Matt. Job well done. I would reccomend this establishment to all people or potential customers. 😊
