Dealer told me that they don't handle heat / highway mileage very well. I love the car, but am at 122K now and am really torn as to whether or not to keep it.

We had a 2010 Cube and had to replace the tranny around 50k. Once they fixed it, no other problems. Recently we had an accident and it was totaled with 140k. We replaced it with a 2013 with a bad tranny, the price was right. It was under 60k mile but over the 5 year mark. Nissan corp was great and agreed to pay 80%.

I'm so glad I didn't get an automatic and instead have the 6 speed 2010 cube currently with 87000 miles and no issues what so ever. I've heard of some mechanics won't even touch the CVT transmissions so you have to go to the dealer, I also know for a fact that Nissan Altima has the worst CVTs around. Recently Toyota has recalled their Toyota Corolla hatchback CVT's. I think I'll stick with manual for a while even tho it's getting tiring in LA traffic. I think CVT's are kinda of new and they have some kinks to work out.

My 2010 Cube (121k) is in for a third transmission replacement- Luckily, still under warranty.

#1 replaced Jan. 2017
#2 replaced Sep. 2018
#3 replaced Jan. 2020
They all failled after a trip Toronto-Montreal-Toronto.
I agree with Rgilmartin comment. they don't seem to handle heat / highway.

I like the car but I guess if I keep it , it will be a city car.

I am wondering if these bad CVT's are a Nissan thing or it affects other makes?
