Yep i agree if the CVT was so terrible than why do automakers use them, this person has no idea about the new CVTís he is just spouting off on what he or she has seen on the internet so it must be true, they probably never even owned one.

I donít know about the Nissan/Jatco CVT, but I have driven Toyota vehicles with a CVT (considered the better ones) and I hate the way they drive.

I really just donít understand why Nissan is so stubborn with their usage of CVTs. They want the Maxima to be a sport sedan, but thereís nothing sporty about a CVT, they are boring.

The program the CVT to operate like an automatic (with the shifting and thrusts). It also has paddle shifters.



Done correctly, a CVT is a fine alternative. I am no fan of CVTs, but after driving one in an Outlander and a Rogue, I find them reasonable for their purpose.

First is the car seat is so wide it feels like itís touching the door and second is the car height is lower than her Sebring. This is a problem for her because of her spine and the arthritis in both knees. My only complaint is the New Jersey license plates.
The CVT in the Altima makes it feel faster off the line but it quickly runs out of steam around 60 mph. Nissans CVT transmissions are also notorious prone to issues and failure. As for Smoother. We it is an 11 year newer car so that makes sense. Altima is not a bad car if you get an extended warranty and don't mind letting them replace the transmission at 60K miles.

Owned several Nissans...used to be my favorite make once SAAB was taken over by GM. My last Nissan was a 97 hardbody 4x4 great
little truck. Yes, I moved on due to Nissans increasing troubling reputation and deplorable resale value in comparision to Honda and Toyota.

BTW your friend IS losing money by leasing, he isn't building any equity in the car.

He doesn’t care about equality he is retired like me and doesn’t drive much anymore and has had his share of financed vehicles. He like myself just want a new car every 3 yrs. i never keep a car past 5 years when i was buying them I’m not the type to hold onto a vehicle and keep it forever, I’ve done that routine before. I don’t want any out of warranty issues again.

That particular rental was from Enterprise. But the next two rentals after were from Budget in Jacksonville and Miami and both cars (Camaro and Mustang) looked pretty beat up as well.

I am leasing a 2017 Nissan Sentra. I have to admit, it's a pretty good car. Comfortable ride. Not real noisy.

I do have the CVT feature but I have never used it. Most likely because I don't understand what it does.

CVT is continuously variable transmission. When you put the shift into drive youíre using the CVT.
