Beautiful vehicles with smooth CVT gearboxes, know how to care for the transmission in your Nissan car, truck, or SUV, and keep it on the road where it belongs
One of the world’s largest automakers, Nissan’s line of cars, trucks, and SUVs are common on Canadian roads and highways, and for good reason: they are reliable, attractive, well-built vehicles. But even Nissan transmissions require regular maintenance and care, including Nissan’s remarkable continuously variable transmissions (CVTs).
It’s been said Nissan’s CVTs is one of the best on the market and it’s true. Nissan CVTs are smooth performing transmissions that help make Nissan vehicles among the tops on the road for fuel-efficiency. However, no Nissan transmission types – or any automaker’s transmissions – are guaranteed to last for a lifetime, especially without preventative maintenance.
The most inexpensive and straightforward way to check on the health of your Nissan transmission is by checking the level and quality of the transmission fluid with the dipstick. Low fluid levels or dirty, oxidized transmission fluid can lead to your transmission malfunctioning. Likewise, too much fluid can create air bubbles inside the transmission, trap heat, and also lead to a breakdown.
Book an appointment at the Mister Transmission location nearest to you, and one of our expert technicians will be happy to inspect your Nissan’s transmission. We'll ensure the transmission fluid hasn’t passed its best before date, that you’re using the right type of fluid, and have the right amount of fluid in your transmission.
The Value of Nissan Transmission Maintenance
Getting regular preventative maintenance can make all the difference in the world to the health of your Nissan transmission, and it helps stave off expensive transmission repairs.
Depending on the type of driving you do – average urban driving, driving long distances, or using your Nissan for towing and hauling heavy loads in extremely hot or cold weather – you may require fresh fluid and a new transmission filter more often than what your vehicle owner’s manual states.
