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

Do not hesitate to get Mr. Transmission to take a look at your vehicle. They will properly diagnose and fix your issues, with no hidden nonsense. Very straight shooters. Cam was great to deal with. They completely rebuilt my transmission, and I ran into a small issue later on. They took care of my issue under warranty, and it didn’t cost me a penny. Fantastic mechanics and customer service! We will be returning for any vehicle needs in the future.

Outstanding. I had a not so good experience with another transmission shop in town. Was getting a hard time with the warranty on my vehicle as it was bought recently. I quickly decided to take my vehicle over to Mister Transmission after speaking with the tech on the phone. Long story short... Car is now fixed, cheaper than quoted with the competition and with a lower kilometer transmission. They went out their way to make sure I was a satisfied customer. The friendliness and smoothline process will keep me coming back if needed. If you're in need of a transmission shop do not waste your time and go see Terry at Mister Transmission. A+
