 Description of the problemI have owned a 2013 nissan altima for just over 3 years. The car had approximately 99,000 miles on it when the transmission died on me. I was making the short trip to home depot one day (approx. 3 weeks ago) when my nissan altima stalled in the middle of the street! I was at a traffic light when my car shuddered and then stalled in the middle of the busy intersection; thankfully it turned back over and i was able to continue my trip. After i finished my shopping at home depot i came to my car and tried to leave, the car started but would shutter and die as soon as i put it into drive or reverse. Eventually, i got the car towed to the closest dealership which was 40 mins away. At the dealership they told me that my transmission was shot and that it couldn't be fixed and had to be replaced...$4,500!!! Despite there being a recall on the cvt which controls the 2nd pulley in the transmission, they told me that the cvt recall had nothing to do with my transmission dying. Eventhough, the recall itself states that failing to get the recall performed could cause damage; $4,500 contlstitutes serious enough damage to me! I contacted the nissan america corporate office and they basically echoed what the dealership said and we're of no help.
