CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) Service & Repair Kitchener
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
- Check Engine Light On
- Gears changing at high RPM
My vehicle is showing at least one of these signs, what should I do?

What Customers Say About Mister Transmission
I was very happy with the level of attention provided to my issues. The gentleman here were very accommodating with my schedule. I was also explained thoroughly what the expectations were before diagnostics and during each step. They were also very in-depth about what was broken and why, even to take the time and show the parts that were replaced. The price was fair and they even looked after me when other components failed that were not part of the original problem. I plan to return for more repairs for as long as I owned a vehicle outside warranty.
did an amazing work, im very happy with the service
Great service, friendly, and provided me information that the dealership felt the need to leave out on top of the dealership wanted to charge me an additional $300 extra for the same work. With it being so hard to find a place you can trust, they have definitely earned mine.

These people helped me out in a tight situation. And gave me the professional service and speed I needed to get back on the road for my job.
After being stuck on the side of the road I googled transmission repair and came up with the Charles street location and talked to George, where he immediately handled the situation and got me a free tow to his location, and repaired my vehicle that day to get me back on the road so as to not miss a meeting, now I know why this location has so many positive google reviews. thanks guys!
