nissan juke cvt failure

Hi,Sorry to hear your tale of breakdown.Get Nissan Customer Services involved at the earliest opportunity. Your dealer may already have contacted Nissan but maybe not.If I remember correctly, safe mode was a different issue and required a firmware or software upgrade to the car. It was done under warranty and I don't think the issue has resurfaced on cars which have had the upgrade.Search the forum for 'safe mode' and see what comes up.Cheers,Cofnchtr.

It's been serviced by the dealership and is obviously still under warranty.The car has gone into 'safe mode' three times now with total loss of power on runs longer than my normal commute. The problem could have been there since I took ownership of the car and just not been visible. After the second issue when we ended up stalled twice it was taken to the main dealership where it showed a cleared gearbox fault. They advise me that because the fault has cleared - there is no way of diagnosing the issue. Currently the car is stranded at the side of the road some 40 miles away and is in the process of being recovered having lost all power whilst driving uphill.What is the best way of dealing with this - via the dealership or by Nissan customer services.If your Dealer is fobbing you off because they can not find a 'Fault' just because there is No Fault Code, your only really left with contacting the (sometimes, sometimes not ... helpful) Nissan Customer Service Team via the phone?They may be able to help, they may not but first off give them a go?With things like this, that are 'intermittent' ... proof is your best friend and as shown, without a Fault Code your Nissan Dealer is as useful as a set of Chocolate Spanners in a Heatwave! So I always recommend getting some form of Visual Evidence to back yourself up with?As cameras are so prolific these days, set one or two up inside your car each time you use it and that way should something 'occur' like this, you'll have a record of it to show whoever needs to see it, fault code or not!Yes I know, a bit of effort needed on your part, but with something like this to hand to stick in front of those ever so helpful types at our wonderful Nissan Dealerships ... you'll be surprised how much it works in your favour. Both Video & Photographic evidence goes a long way when it comes to explaining problems with both the Dealer and then Nissan Customer Services.Anyway good luck with sorting this out?M-J

Hi, My Tekna's CVT failed about a month ago now at 28,000. Luckily it was still under warranty but they only agreed to re-condition the unit rather than replace it. it's taken a month to do however, does anyone know if this is a recurring problem or just a one off? I'm not sure I want the car back if the gear box could go again at any time. Please can someone help with any advice?Thanks

Hi Andrea and welcome.Given that there are nine pages on this issue, recurring is fairly well known, sorry to say.Several CVT/AWD owners, myself included, have taken out an extended warranty owing to this potential issue.

The second failure on my gearbox again showed a cleared fault due to overheating. The advice from the garage was to stop the car, turn off the engine, restart and it will clear. We tried that last time and it came back within half an hour. I've contacted customer services each time and been told to let the garage sort it out.If (or more likely when) it happens again I'm going to really lay into them.

My Nissan Juke 2012 after 4 years and 50k transmission started to make noises. Local dealership opened the transmission and found transmission oil with the "metal dust". They photo it and Nissan HQ authorized the free replacement (even though my Juke is 1 year as out of warranty). I had to pay only for oil change.Now I'm considering if I should swap the juke on some other car, not sure how long new transmission will last.

>>Good luck with your new gearbox, I also hope you get the new 2014 Xtronic.NismoHogan, is there a way to check what gearbox I got? Ask dealership perhaps?

My 2015 6000 mile juke went for a service
I pointed out that between 35 and 40 mph the revs would momentarily drop and then pick up again.
They said they couldn’t find a fault but I needed a new automatic box as there where partials in the oil
I was shocked to say the least then they gave me the warranty bill £4600 of which only £300 was labour
Thank god it was covered under warranty
It did not fix the Rev dropping fault !
I’ll be getting rid when the warranty runs out .
I have had 40 automatic cars and the only others box that failed on me was a Ford Fiesta with a cvt box
And that cost £1200 twenty odd years ago.
