 Description of the problemCvt transmission issues. Received a recall notice on the cvt transmission to reprogram the cvt. Issue started before the reprogram and before 100k miles, stalled out in traffic, smelled burning rubber, sputtering while driving no engine light appeared on the dash. All these issues occurred before the recall notice. Once i received the notice from nissan, took into service department to complete. Worked fine with little issues, still sputtering and stalled out once for about 2 months, issue started again. Check engine light came on this time. Took into service department for diagnostics as requested from nissan, my own expense, was notified by service department the code is p17f1 " death code" for transmission. Called nissan consumer affairs to apply for out of warranty assistance from nissan was told did not qualify, due to mileage. Mileage is now over 100k. The cvt transmission problems consist of the transmission oil getting to hot while driving on trips, causing the seals to burn. Nissan is aware of the issues customers are experiencing with the cvt transmissions and should be responsible for repairing.
