CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) Service & Repair North York, 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 believe this location was recently taken over by a new management team as the service provided was definitely far better than i have experienced before (at the same location). The mechanics were certainly a little "attitudey" but i felt that the experience was positive given the fact that i would take attitude and trust, over friendly and pushing items on me that i didn't need to hit a quota. They diagnosed the problem and provided me with options, with realistic timelines. Management team highly professional and make sure you leave happy. I would recommend this location to anyone.

I had an excellent experience at this place. In June 2018. my Chevy Impala 2011 stopped working and it needed transmission work: install a second hand or rebuild transmission. For me it was an adventure to find someone to work on my car, and I had to transfer my car 3 - THREE - times from one service to another until I was LUCKY to find this place. When I arrived there, I was already very stressed and under the impression that no one will solve my problem and that eventually I will have to send my car to the junkyard. Good News for me though! This service is REALLY at another level. They were able to identify what the problem was, recommended what to do and offered me a rebuild with warranty. I was very skeptical initially - after previous bad experiences in other locations - , however I took the chance and made the work as they recommended it -. They requested for the work a little more than I initially intended to pay, however, they DIDN'T increase their price once the work started - which tends to happen in most of the services where I've been before -. They assessed properly the work needed upfront and looked very much in control, so they didn't come half the way with any price increase! It is January 2020, 1 year and a half after they rebuilt my transmission. I used my car for another 30,000km since the rebuilt, and I didn't experience any problems. I am very satisfied with their work, their results, their professionalism and their approach that made me feel that they care about my problem. I recommend anyone who has transmission problems and is desperate to visit this shop and see how it goes. Thank you so much!
