    Apparently Nissans confident in the long term reliability of their CVT transmissions as they've voluntarily decided to double the warranty length coverage on all CVT equipped cars. Even if the cars already out of warranty it will now be covered again until 10 year/120,000 miles. Very cool!

    CVTs are good, they just haven't been refined as long as gearboxes have been. Give it time.

    Is this every vehicle equipped with a CVT, or only the new models? I've got an 06 Murano...

    Uhh they did that because of so many problems that the CVT has had. It is well known that ther early ones were JUNK.

    The CVT is the reason I will never consider a 7th gen Maxima.
