 Description of the problemWe purchased a used nissan 2013 altima approximately 2 months ago. We were driving westbound on interstate 71 between florence, kentucky and louisville, kentucky. The car had about 86,000 miles on it at the time of the incident. While driving the car seemed to vibrate and feel like it was missing or stalling. Frequently the tachometer would rev high without any change in acceleration. We stopped at a rest area just east of louisville. When we left the rest area to merge back on to i-71 we lost all acceleration and had to pull on to shoulder before being struck by an oncoming semi. The car jerked back into movement and we made it into louisville and onto i-64. The farther we went the less responsive the car got and we slowed to a maximum speed of about 30 miles an hour and had to pull onto the very narrow shoulder to get out of the heavy traffic. After letting the car sit for about 10 minutes we were able to get it moving again and after 2 more stops made it to corydon, indiana. At that point we rode in the other vehicle we were traveling with the rest of the way home then returned to corydon with a trailer to haul the nissan home. We hauled the nissan to a local transmission shop where the owner determined the cvt transmission pan was full of metal shavings and the transmission was deemed shot! Subsequent to this happening we found out that nissan had extended their power-train warranty from 60,000 to 120,000 miles on earlier models (through 2010), but not the 2013. We have encountered significant time lost, very significant expense, and were in danger of being rear-ended on the interstate when the car lost all acceleration.
