Has anyone had transmission problems with their 2017 NV200? I turned 60,000 at the 3 year mark but at 58,000 I was told I needed to replace a broken transmission part. I have never ever had that part replaced in other vehicles nor have I had transmission problems with any other vehicle with more than twice the miles and I’m still making payments so I’m concerned.

Thanks for posting. Same problem here. It seems to happen only when the transmission is "cold". After a few kilometers the problem seems to disappear (Located in Italy 2016 NV200 with 240000 Kilometers/150000 miles)

What part did they say was broken? I have a 2017 NV200 with about 53k miles on it. I have not had any transmission problems so far. Only thing the dealer service repair guy said was to make sure I did the fluid replacement at 60k miles.

Nissan CVT transmissions are definitely an issue. Just GOOGLE Nissan CVT transmission lawsuits and you will see there are big problems, but NISSAN wont do anything about it. I put a new transmission in my Rogue at 156K. My advice is to save a couple of hundred dollars each month so you will have the $2200 for the transmission, plus another $1500 in Labor.I guess it`s no secret why the company is in serious Financial trouble? Not to mention the CEO that stole Billions and they cannot seem to find him???

I've owned several NIssan models over the last decade personal and work, all with CVT. Never had a CVT issue with any of them. I would recommend changing the CVT fluid.
What specific part broke?

Like any car company they are in the midst of challenges (happens to ALL of them), however, like all automotive mft it just their turn.

The part the dealership said was broken were the hoses in the transmission which is really weird and then I found out later they put them in loose because not long after, the transmission fluid leaked out all over my driveway. My regular mechanic then checked the transmission and tightened the hoses and now everything seems ok, so frustrating because I like my van. Hopefully it’s under control now

What part exactly. Transmissions typically have more than one part to them and not every problem is gonna be the same in everyones van... I've seen a handful of jatco cvt failures, mostly caused by an input shaft bearing/thrust wash piling up then contaminating the entire transmission with metal chunks and shavings. The rouges and sentra's are notorious for having failure prone cvt's. A co-worker had one that needed a valvebody, it was out of warranty but Nissan covered it and ended up installing a new cvt in his. Said they extended the warranty in certain model years apparently.
I've only had one nv200 cvt problem, the van took a rock in the cooler behind the bumper. Driver kept on going til it quit moving then reved it til it was smoking. No warranty on that one, ordered a used one from car-part.com. I installed it along with a new cvt cooler and it's been good ever since, 227,000km on that van now. Highest original cvt nv200 in the fleet has 218,000km. Highest mileage cvt Mitsubishi has 370,000kms on it. It's in a 3cyl Mirage.

Here are list of common Nissan transmission problems.
Nissan Transmissions Common Problems
1. Bad Solenoid
2. Low Fluid Level / Leaks
3. Bad Transmission Speed Sensor
4. Failed Radiator / Transmission Cooler
5. Limp-home mode
6. Shift flares or harsh downshifts.
7. Shudder while engaging higher gears
8. Rattle or judder during accelerations
9. No Reverse
10. Poor acceleration and excessive engine speed


I suggest you look at the reference before going ahead with transmission rebuild.

We've got a few nv200's with close to 300,000km on them with no issues. Many have well over 200,000. The only one I replaced so far was trashed because the oil cooler(not integrated into the rad like the link above states) started leaking(got hit by a rock) and the driver just kept on going until it wouldn't move anymore. Then kept trying to drive it....

The engine and transmissions are the few things I haven't had to replace on these things yet. Wheel bearings are pretty common, ball joints have been failing a lot too, just replaced a starter on one with under 200,000km, had some wiring issues with a couple vans, on failed air bag module, temp controls are junk, heater motors fail regularly, sliding door handles break often, power windows don't like to work in the cold, poor heater output in the winter, wear out tires quicker than any vehicle I've worked on before, side mirrors corrode inside and fall off randomly, front rotors like to catch rocks and groove rotors with low mileage, Had one wiper transmission break, fuel door hinge is flimsy and gets knocked out alignment often, but other than that, they're decent...
